Every new mother’s guide to baby skincare

Being a new mother is one of the greatest feelings in the world. The struggle of carrying the baby for nine months and the excruciating pains during labor and delivery seem worthwhile when you hold your little one in your arms for the first time. The little one is a mood uplifter for everyone. But the joy of welcoming a new member is often taken over by the anxiety and curiosity of taking proper care of him/her which comes naturally to a new mother.

We bring to you this basic guide on how to care for your baby’s skin, especially if you are new to motherhood!


Always bathe your baby in lukewarm water. Use baby wash that is mild and free from harsh chemicals or toxins. Your baby does not need a bath every day and thus, you must avoid doing so, in order to prevent excessive drying of the skin. Buy new born baby products like Maaté's Baby Body Wash which is gentle on the baby’s skin and ingredients like oats and neem keep the skin soft and clean. Check it out here.

Dry your baby gently using a soft baby towel, as any regular towel can cause rashes and scratches on the sensitive skin.


Moisturizing your baby well is a crucial step to retain the moisture and softness of your little one’s skin. Mothers must moisturize their baby after every bath as the soaps can dry out the skin. It is important to apply a good moisturizer, especially during the dry months like the winters, when the baby’s skin is more prone to dryness. Use Maaté’s Baby Face Butter which has essential ingredients like Shea Butter and Chamomile oil. The butter penetrates deep into the skin and gets absorbed fast, without causing oiliness.

Diaper Troubles

Diapers can be very useful to keep the baby clean and fresh. However, these diapers can also irritate the sensitive skin of the baby, causing rashes and infections. Keep your baby dry and comfortable by not keeping them wrapped in diapers for a long period of time. Use good diaper rash creams or body moisturizers to prevent diaper rashes. Maaté’s Baby Body Butter is an intensely moisturizing butter that can soothe the sensitive areas prone to rashes and keep them soft. Check out newborn baby products here.


Massages should be an integral part of every baby’s skincare routine. They have numerous benefits from aiding growth to the strengthening of bones. Massage your baby gently yet firmly with a nutrient-rich massage oil like Maaté’s Baby Body Massage Oil. It has antioxidants and the power of precious oils that nourish the baby and keep him happy and healthy.
