Travelling with a young baby or toddler doesn’t have to be stressful. Creating a memorable holiday is what it’s all about and if keeping your little ones calm in transit is important – whatever the reason for your travel, these simple tips may be just what you need.
Moisturise and Hydrate
To help keep skin well-hydrated during long-haul flights, use non-greasy, water based natural cream. We suggest locking in moisture with an unscented product – try Pure Baby Moisture Cream specifically formulated for babies and anyone with sensitive skin. For older children and adults, why not opt for a more nourishing formula? Also free from essential oils, Natural Baby Lotion is an ideal choice. The thicker cream formulation spreads further and is more moisturising, ideal also for eczema and dermatitis sufferers. Travel can take its toll and be extremely dehydrating to the skin. A good routine which includes the application of a high quality, natural moisturizer to hands, face, legs as well as keeping up fluid intake, is vital for even the youngest of frequent flyers.
Soothe to Sleep
Whether it’s a long haul flight or a short, day trip, you can use massage to soothe your little one off to slumber in no time at all.
Choose our Baby Massage oil with relaxing lavender and rose and warm a little oil in your hands before singing or speaking softly to your child. Using circular strokes massage the soles of their little feet, then gently massage and wring each little tootsie and circle your thumbs around the ankle bones to finish off. If your child enjoys their hands being massaged, repeat these strokes on the hands and use long, flowing strokes down the length of their arms. The organic oils will help to moisturize dry skin and the gentle touch will signal sleep time.
Protect and Pamper
If your child is in nappies or pull-ups, using a protective, natural balm can help to guard the skin from wetness and irritation. Natural ingredients including vitamin e and calendula can help soothe and then protect the skin by leaving a light barrier to guard against wetness. Not just for babies, Barrier Balm has been soothing skin for two decades. Perfect to help minimise chafing, dry lips, as a nail and cuticle balm, for dry, cracked heels and elbows, for sunburn, insect bites and much more. If you’re seeking an effective, natural product that works as an all-round, multi-purpose super-hero, look no further – you’ll be delighted at the superior results one little jar can provide.
