Bathtime in the spotlight: four tips for a gentle, pleasant bath

Bathing your baby is one of the crucial steps in their daily care and hygiene routine. Bath time should be a special time for bonding and togetherness, promoting your baby's well-being.

One bath a day at the right temperature

The bath should be neither too hot, which tends to dry the skin, nor too cold, which can be uncomfortable for baby. Bath your baby for 5 to 10 minutes at a temperature of 37 degrees.

A gentle, adapted cleanser

Traditional soap has a high pH and strong cleansing agents that can strip the skin's hydrolipidic film. That's why La Roche-Posay Dermatological Laboratories formulated LIPIKAR Cleansing Gel to gently cleanse and protect your baby's skin while preserving the skin's pH.

Recommendations

La Roche-Posay offers products to meet the needs of very dry, eczema-prone skin. Start by adding a few drops of LIPIKAR Cleansing Oil to the bath to protect your baby's skin. Then wash with LIPIKAR Syndeta cream wash that cleanses very dry skin without drying.

Use your fingertips

For gentler washing and to minimise friction, use your fingertips to wash your baby for a special moment of shared closeness.

Gentle drying

To dry your baby, carefully pat the skin with a clean towel, paying particular attention to skin folds to avoid leaving any damp areas which could cause irritation.
