Do Children Need to Use Skin Care Products?

List: Posted: 04/04/11

These days, it seems like you can get separate products for every skin condition under the sun. You can purchase skin products for aging skin, sunburned skin, acne prone skin, and itchy skin. You can even purchase skin products made specifically for children. What’s the difference with the products that are made for kids?

For one thing, products made especially for children are going to be gentler on the skin. Until kids reach puberty, they normally don’t struggle with acne or overly oily skin. If you use skin products that are too harsh, you’ll strip their skin of the oil it needs to stay healthy. Then, you can get caught in a repeating cycle of having to moisturize the dry skin so it doesn’t flake and crack.

If you’re dealing with young children, their skin products should be mostly natural and gentle on the skin. Because healthy younger children don't have many real skin issues, they don’t need the chemical-heavy skin products teenagers and adults might use. Instead, mild soap should do the trick. Often times, you may also want to use a light moisturizer, especially when children are out in the winter wind or summer sun.

What if your child does struggle with skin problems, though? Some children get acne from a very young age, and others might have problems like eczema. When this occurs, you may want to talk to your pediatrician about the skin products that are right for your child. Special needs require special skin products to take care of the problem.
