A client of mine asked me for a few holistic remedies for baby acne the other day .. wanted to share with you all . Baby acne is a very common thing that happens a few weeks after the birth . Its caused by the left over hormones that the baby received by its mommy at the end of pregnancy . Baby acne is also caused by irritated skin so its important to keep your baby’s sensitive skin clean and away from any fragrant soaps or dyes or harsh cleaning chemicals found in some laundry detergents .
Apply breast milk for 15 min then wipe off .. Repeat a few times a day …
Exposé your baby to fresh air
1tsp of honey mixed w 1 tsp of lemon juice .. Apply mixture to affected area leave on for 1/2 hour wash off with warm water .
Make sure all your laundry soap you and your baby use are dye and fragrant free
Mix 1 cup of water and 1 tsp of baking soda apply mixture to affected area the dab dry
Don’t eat any oily foods
Drink lots of fresh fruit juice
No oily lotions of any kind at all on baby’s face
Keep face clean .. If friends come and hold baby wash face after ( it has been found laundry soap on people’s clothes can irritate baby acne )
It will go away on its on in time ..
