frost and cold wind - not the best companions for a walk with the baby, but in the winter we them can not escape.A little to the skin is not affected by such a "cool" communication, it is important to know how to properly care for her.
skin kids are so thin and vulnerable, which is much worse than in adults, may protect against external crumbs "aggressors".Due to the fact that the level of acidity (pH) is closer to neutral, but not acidic medium, the skin of babies is more vulnerable to infection.The water content therein is significantly higher, while fat - is lower because the sebaceous glands in children are insufficient and the protective film is very thin fat.As a result, the baby's skin dries quickly, and all sorts of misfortunes (including frost and wind) affect it more than us.
Under pressure from the cold wind particles water and fat quickly leave the skin and it dries up and become less elastic.Mikrotreschinki formed therein through which the inside can easily penetrate infections and allergies.Then my mother noticed that the skin of her offspring became dry and starts to peel off.If a pipsqueak spent in the cold too long spasm of blood vessels may impair blood flow to the skin and its protective function, and sometimes even result in frostbite.
