How to Take Care of Your Newborn's Skin

Have you ever wondered why newborn babies are covered with light body hairs when they are born? The tiny hairs are there to protect the newborn’s skin as he makes the journey out of the womb through the birth canal and into the world. 

The hairs disappear within a few days but the baby’s skin will remain soft and sensitive. 

It’s important to use baby skin products which are not harsh but gentle on a newborn’s skin to protect it from damage.

Keep in mind its normal for a newborn to have tiny pimples on the nose and cheeks during the first few weeks. This is known as baby acne and is caused by being exposed to the mother’s hormones while inside the womb. 

Wash your newborn’s clothes separately using a light detergent to prevent itchy skin and rashes.

Do not expose your baby to the sun. Experts says it’s best to wait until a baby is 6 months old before taking him outside when the weather is sunny. Always use a hat and baby sunscreen.

Dress your baby in cotton clothes since this type of material is gentle on baby’s skin.

When bathing your newborn do not leave him for more than 3 minutes in the water and always use plain water. Apply a baby cream after a bath to keep the skin well moisturized.

Homemade Green Tea Ginger for a Healthy Liver and Weight Loss

Are you suffering from belly fat?
Have you tried exercising, dieting and even pills but none of them worked?
One reason could be that your liver cells have accumulated too much fat.
When we consume meals having more fat than our body can handle, the extra fat ends up in the liver. This can trigger the appearance of fat in the belly, thighs, arms and legs.
Abdominal fat is one of the hardest to lose. Stubborn abdominal fat must first be loosened before it can be removed from the body.

Gulping down water is a big no no! Google the reason and you will be amaz…
