Warm, sweaty weather can make your skin vulnerable to dehydration, irritation, and acne—pretty much the last thing you need when you still have vacations planned out.
But don't let that stop you from enjoying the great outdoors. There are ways to combat the heat and the possible skin concerns it causes—and one of these ways is using baby products.
First of all, no, we're not making this up. Most baby products have ingredients that are extra gentle on the skin. (Unlike adult formulas with stronger scents and ingredients.) Think: If it’s gentle enough for babies (and even for moms-to-be!), it should be gentle enough on your skin, too.
If you want to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized, add these four products to your skincare regimen:
1. JOHNSON’S ® BABY Milk+Rice™ Bath
When your skin is directly exposed to the sun, it reacts to free radicals in the air that can ultimately result in skin damage and aging. In short, it's a skincare nightmare you can't wake up from.
ICYDK, your skin can benefit from rice ingredients to help complete skin nourishment. Not only is rice a natural antioxidant that’s rich in vitamins A and C, which help prevent free radical damage from the sun, it also has soothing properties that relieve skin of irritation and even redness caused by zits. To incorporate rice ingredients into your routine, try JOHNSON’S ® BABY Milk+Rice™ Bath; its new formula has 200 percent more vitamins and minerals, plus it's two times more nourishing than regular bar soaps to leave your skin feeling strong and healthy, especially against the heat.
2. JOHNSON’S ® BABY Lotion Milk+Rice™
Milk may get a bad rap with the lactose intolerant, but when it comes to skincare, it's a non-irritant, which infuses the skin with proteins, helping moisturize sensitive skin and keeping it that way for long. Complete your body care routine by applying a generous amount of lotion with rich milk proteins after your shower or bath. To help you get baby-soft and smooth skin, try JOHNSON’S ® BABY Lotion Milk+Rice™, which has an improved formulation that's gentle on the skin and contains 50 percent more vitamins than regular soap bars that can help nourish your skin.
3. JOHNSON'S ® BABY Bath Milk+Oats™
You've probably said something like "My skin is a desert" at least once in your life. Even if your skin does produce oil, it can still appear scaly and cracked from time to time, and that's why you always hoard body lotion to make sure your skin always stays moisturized.
Treat your skin with a product made with oats. Oats can be found in skincare products that address skin issues as they have anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Add these into your regimen through JOHNSON'S ® BABY Bath Milk+Oats™. It has a hypoallergenic formula that’s also pH-balanced and soap-free, making it gentle on sensitive skin while helping repair dry skin.
4. JOHNSON’S ® BABY Lotion Milk+Oats™
To give dry skin the hydration it needs, look for a lotion with oats and milk like JOHNSON’S ® BABY Lotion Milk+Oats™. It not only nourishes your skin with essential milk proteins but also helps infuse moisture deep into the skin's surface with its 24-hour moisture lock. Moreover, dehydrated skin often leads to itchiness and irritation—two things that require hydrating and mild ingredients to help relieve and soften skin from dryness.
