Product Review: Skincare for Kids
As women, we're inundated by ads for skincare products every day. They're pitched to us on TV, in magazines, online and at the mall. Most of us have made a few unwise expenditures of alleged miracle creams, and came out of it wiser, more savvy shoppers. Now, as moms, we're being courted by companies making skin products for our kids.
Some parents may let out a groan when we see the new skincare products formulated for kids. They're young, their skin is perfect as far as we can see, so do we really need to buy any more stuff?
Children's skincare products are becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason. First, the obvious. The scents, styles and packages of most of these products are cute and fun. They appeal to the kid in all of us. Of course, that's not the only reason to consider checking out children's skincare products.
The skin is the largest organ of the human body. It protects us from illness, disease and injury, and we need to protect it from the weather, environmental pollutants and everyday wear and tear.
Buying kids their own skincare products can help them to learn about the importance of their skin, and get them accustomed to performing a daily skincare regimen.
Children's skincare products really are different from those formulated for adults, primarily because they're made for children's delicate, sensitive skin. There are many children's skincare products offered by companies that specialize in environmentally-friendly skincare and that feature ingredients straight from nature.
So, what types of skincare products do children need? It depends on your child's unique skincare needs, but there are some basics you'll want to look into.
Hand washing is the simplest and most effective way to prevent the spread of our most common communicable illnesses. Parents could avoid much of the lost school and work time and the sniffly, sneezy misery of cold season if only children had more enthusiasm for hand-washing.
