I cared for my daughters skin with Aveeno® Active Naturals as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #Aveeno
Yes, Peyton has a skincare routine. I think all kids should. I’m pretty sure we all use things like Bee Propolis to keep out skin healthy so why leave it up to your child to figure out how to take care of their skin when they become an adult? Starting a routine at a young age will help to ensure that they grow up with beautiful healthy skin.
1. Their skin is different. It has been clinically proven that babies and bigger kids skin is different than adults skin. Duh, right! I still use AVEENO® Baby Wash & Shampoo on Peyton. The tear free formula of AVEENO® Baby Wash & Shampoo, cleans your child’s skin with out drying.
2. They loose moisture faster. Babies and kids loose moisture in their skin way faster than you and I. I used to wonder why Peyton’s knees would be so ashy under her pants. I try to moisturize Peyton morning and night.
3. Promote healthy hygiene. Please don’t leave it up to these teenage girls and boys to figure out how to take care of themselves after you stop helping them with bath time. Start a routine while they are you and check on them to make sure they are keeping it up.
4. Time to bond. Bath time is a great time to bond with your child. I always ask Peyton about her friends at school during bath. She’s always happy to give the me the “tea”.
5. Notice issues quickly. Having a routine not only helps their skin stay healthy but you will be able to identify any problems quickly. Last spring, I noticed that Peyton had some bumps on her arm. Because we keep the same routine, I was pretty sure it wasn’t from the products we were using. I was able to address the issue right away.
Aveeno® Baby Wash & Shampoo and Daily Moisture Lotion are great product to use to jumpstart your child’s skincare routine. Aveeno® Baby Wash & Shampoo is soap free and gentle enough for infants and babies sensitive skin. To learn more about about Aveeno® Baby Wash & Shampoo and Daily Moisture Lotion click HERE.
Does your child have a skincare routine?

Yeah, I’m noticing the change in Peyton’s skin also. Johnson and Johnson products were breaking her out and causing her to have red splotches on her skin when I would take her clothes off. I have started using Dove sensitive skin body wash and unscented Castle soap from Whole Foods.

I don’t have a child but but I agree with you. We can’t expect kids to figure things out we have to at least show them the way then later they can perfect it to their taste. Nice post and blog

Hmm, honestly I have never thought about it, but your post make sense. Especially in the winter when my boys’ skin is crazy dry!

I love this! As someone who has struggled with acne and a host of other skin issues I can’t help but think things just might have been different if someone had taught me about skincare before it became a problem. I’m constantly being told my dermatologists and specialists to wear a moisturiser with SPF everyday and it seems mad to me that people wouldn’t have their children (who have thin, sensitive skin) do the same! Aveeno is fab for the little ones and I applaud you for this 🙂

Can nine-year-olds use this?
