Published

Summer is here, which means that your babys skin requires extra care and nourishment. As a new parent, it is natural to be confused about how to take care of your babys skin during summer as the weather can bring about several skin problems. While these can cause discomfort, you can minimise them by incorporating a routine-led skin care regimen for your baby.

“The soaring temperature often causes irritation and discomfort to babies. Some common problems during summer are heat rashes, diaper rashes, dry skin and prickly heat. As a baby’s skin is thin and delicate, sweat can lead to clogged pores, further resulting in these problems. To reduce any kind of discomfort and to keep your baby cool, use doctor recommended products that are enriched with natural ingredients and keep the skin well-hydrated, moisturised, and nourished always,” says Dr. Subhashini. N.S., Ayurveda Expert, R&D, The Himalaya Drug Company.

Here are a few skin care tips to ensure your baby’s skin remains healthy throughout summer.

* Refresh the skin with a bath: Bathing is the best way to remove sweat and keep the skin clean. Use lukewarm water and avoid hot water. You can also opt for a refreshing baby wash and soap infused with herb extracts like Neem, which helps protect baby’s skin, and Watermelon which helps keep baby’s skin cool and fresh

* Soothe the skin with a lotion: You can opt for a calamine-based lotion with natural ingredients like Aloe Vera, Nutgrass Oil, and Mustard Oil. Aloe Vera helps moisturize the skin, Nutgrass Oil helps soothe rashes, and Mustard Oil helps reduce itching

* Keep prickly heat at bay: To relieve your baby of prickly heat, it is advisable to use a prickly heat baby powder. It helps in soothing the skin and keeping it dry. A slight dab of prickly heat powder with natural ingredients like Neem helps relieve itching and soothes the skin, and Vetiver helps cool your baby’s skin

* Use a diaper rash cream: Changing the diaper frequently during summer helps keep the skin fresh and avoid diaper rashes. Additionally, choose a diaper rash cream containing Almond Oil and Yashada Bhasma. Almond Oil works as a moisturiser and Yashada Bhasma helps reduce skin inflammation and heals rashes

Keeping your baby comfortable during summer is key to enjoying the season. Choose light cotton and linen fabrics to dress your baby and pick a diaper of the right size to prevent diaper rashes. Overall, use natural products that are free from parabens, phthalates, alcohol, and mineral oils, which are safe and gentle on baby’s skin.

Actor Sanjay Dutt, who recently confirmed that he was fighting cancer, on Wednesday shared a health update saying he has come out victorious in his battle with the disease.

Dutt posted a statement on Instagram expressing joy while making the announcement.

“The last few weeks were very difficult time for my family and me. But like they say, God gives the hardest battles to his strongest soldiers. And today, on the occasion of my kids’ birthday, I am happy to come out victorious from this battle and be able to give them the best gift I can-the health and well-being of our family,” the statement read.

The actor thanked his family and doctors for taking proper care of him. He also expressed his gratitude to well-wishers for showering him with love.

“This wouldn’t have been possible without the unwavering faith and support from all of you. I am eternally grateful to my family, friends and all the fans who have stood by me and been my source of strength through this trying time. Thank you for the love, kindness and the countless blessings that you have sent my way. I am especially grateful to Dr. Sewanti and her team of doctors, nurses and the medical staff at Kokilaben Hospital who have taken such good care of me in the last few weeks. Humbled and grateful,” he concluded.

Dutt’s fans and colleagues are extremely happy.

“One of the best news,” a user commented.

“So happy to hear this. Stay healthy,” wrote another.

A few days ago, Dutt had addressed his battle with cancer in a video posted by his friend, celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim.

In the video, the actor showed his scar mark, saying: “Good to be back in the salon. Got a haircut. If you see this, this is a recent scar in my life, but I will beat it. I will beat it, I will be out of this cancer soon.”

On August 11, Dutt, who was hospitalised a few days before that due to breathing problems and chest discomfort, shared that he was taking a break for medical treatment.

Although the actor or his family members did not reveal anything officially at that point, trade analyst and film industry insider Komal Nahta subsequently confirmed that the actor had been diagnosed with lung cancer.

“Sanjay Dutt diagnosed with lung cancer. Let’s pray for his speedy recovery,” Nahta had tweeted.
