5 Tips To Treating Baby Acne Naturally

Acne is stressful as it is in our younger years and even more so when you’re an adult. Now you have a baby and not only does your face break out like a little girls again, but you have to deal with it on you’re baby’s skin too.

Well in fact babies can suffer from acne due to the hormones of the mother during pregnancy and also naturally becoming clogged pores in the womb, however this condition should not be confused with milia; a condition in which dead skin is trapped on baby’s skin and doesn’t slough off causing little white bumps.

This is a natural occurrence and can be easily mistaken for acne. But if you’re baby is experiencing reddish spots or pimples, they should be treated, naturally. Baby acne may appear to be painful for your child but doctors have said that it hardly has an effect on them physically and does not cause pain to the baby with it.

Any traditional means as a form of an acne treatment for your baby like a medicated cream or prescription is obviously out of the question.

A few quick and easy tips for treating baby acne naturally:

Number one way, treat baby acne naturally - Wash your babies skin with warm water, a washcloth with a tiny bit of Dr. Bronner’s natural baby soap and gently massage.

Number two way, treat baby acne naturally - There are even some reports of putting breast milk on the affected skin to relieve it from the acne, however if it were your hormones in the first place and you too suffer from post pregnancy acne then I would not recommend this be given a try.

Number three way, treat baby acne naturally - Instead a dab of coconut oil rubbed gently over the affected skin will help too. In fact this is an excellent moisturizer for after their bath too and they will smell well, edible...

However this is called cannibalism and is in fact frowned upon in most societies – Willy Wonka!

Number four way, treat baby acne naturally - Patience. Drs have said that there is no harm to the baby through a little acne, and that it will in a couple of weeks go away naturally so it best to take simple measure and not freak out about it.

Number five way, treat baby acne naturally - Make sure your buying the right perfume free detergents as baby’s skin is very sensitive to this and other perfumes.

This means telling grandma to lay off the spray next time she wants to come over just a bit too! Yes grandma your perfume is a little much for the baby! Anything that comes in contact with the baby’s skin should be clean and fragrance free.

If you as a mother struggle with acne then you should seek out great home acne remedies as your acne will be a little tougher than a dab of coconut oil to get rid of.

Also because you are most likely breast feeding it would be best to not use medications or over the counter topical either, but instead use natural skincare remedies.
