The skin is a multifunctional organ of great importance that promotes, through skin barrier function, mechanical protection, thermoregulation, immune surveillance, and prevents the loss of bodily fluids. Skin is a complex tissue derived from both embryonic mesoderm and ectoderm. The development and growth of human fetal skin is marked by a series of sequential, patterned steps that are tightly controlled and dependent on a variety of interactions of the numerous cell types that compose the organ. It was previously thought that the skin barrier function reached its maturity at about 34 weeks of gestation.
However, recent data show that it continues to develop until 12 months after birth. The skin of the neonate is subjected to a gradual process of adaptation to the extra uterine environment, and special care becomes necessary during this period. The skin is more vulnerable in the pediatric population, especially with regard to the differing sensitivities between adults and children.
Skincare Products For Children-
Due to the characteristics of the skin of newborn babies, infants, and children, cosmetic products intended for their hygiene and protection require special attention in their formulation. Their skin care products should seek to preserve skin integrity, prevent toxicity and to avoid exposure of the skin to harmful chemical agents. These differences and issues in the skin types have inspired people to come up with different skin and hair products for adults and kids in the market.
So here are a few dos and don’ts to keep in mind before buying the skin care products for children.
- Products which are free of artificial fragrances, animal fat, parabens, harmful chemicals, petroleum derivatives, colour additives and alcohol are safe for kids.
- Use fragrance-free bath oil or a mild, gentle non-soap cleanser if required while bathing your infant in warm water every day. Avoid bubble bath as it removes natural oils from the child's skin.
- Avoid antibacterial and perfumed soaps as they may irritate the baby's thin and fragile skin.
- Apply a nappy rash cream - A thick layer of aqueous creams should be applied at every nappy change.
- Use a good quality moisturizer, purchased from a pharmacy, such as aqueous cream immediately after the bath to keep the skin hydrated. Thicker creams and ointments are more effective than lotions. If your baby's skin usually seems dry, a moisturizer may need to be applied two to four times a day. Make sure there are no hidden carcinogens, estrogens or caustic detergents in the moisturizer. If you find it difficult to choose the right moisturizer, prepare a homemade natural skin moisturizer for your toddler.
Always consult a pediatric dermatologist if your child’s skin is easily irritated and is less resistant to bacteria and harmful substances in the environment.
Acne scars look bad and often interfere with your bright looks, as they make you feel embarrassed and unfresh. You use more makeup to cover them or avoid going out in order to hide them. However, instead of hiding your face or the scars, you may try these treatment options to remove the scars instead and feel brighter and better.
- Chemical peels: This method involves the application of a chemical peel on the skin. The acid in it removes the superficial skin layer to improve the appearance of the scar. This works well on lighter scars, and a licensed medical practitioner, nurse or cosmetologist can do this procedure.
- Dermabrasion and Microdermabrasion: This technique involves using a high speed brush on the skin to polish the portion of the scar and make that part of the skin even, so that the scar looks lighter. If your skin doctor feels that you don't need serious dermabrasion, then he may use a microdermabrasion where small crystals are sprayed onto the skin surface to remove the skin cells over the scar and improve appearance.
- Fillers: Fillers are used on the skin which gets depressed due to the acne or scars. There are some binding materials like collagen or Hyaluronic acid, which can be injected through an injection, and this keeps the skin smooth, scar free and elevated for some time after which the injection has to be repeated. This has to be a continuous treatment until your skin starts to appear normal again.
- Retinoid creams: The retinoid creams are especially beneficial on scars if applied patiently for a prolonged period. These creams come with little side effects like burning, drying or peeling of the skin, but over a medium to long term application, all scars do get removed.
- Laser treatment: A combination of a few types of laser treatments or just one type depending on the acne stage or redness is used. This smoothens the skin and removes the acne scars by removing skin cells from the area.
- Punch Excisions and Skin grafting: This is a surgical technique. The acne scar can be removed by cutting a portion of the skin, and removing it. Normally, this procedure is combined with skin grafting, where the hole created by the acne is filled up either through stitches, or through grafting of the skin. This is actually the most invasive process to remove scars and only done when you have a serious, permanent and stubborn scar which can't be effectively removed by other techniques.

Skin allergens such as immune system disorders, medicines, food, and infections can trigger an immune system response that characterizes in the form of a skin allergy. Although skin allergies such as bumps, itchy rashes, red patches and other conditions are commonly seen, identifying their cause isn't as straightforward sometimes.
Homeopathy identifies and treats the root cause of the allergy with oral medication instead of superficial medicines such as topical creams and treatments. To treat a skin allergy or problem, homeopathy keeps in mind the sufferer, not just the allergy or skin.
Common skin allergies can be effectively treated with suitable homeopathic treatments as listed below.
Eczema - Also known as dermatitis, it affects children more than adults. Characterized by the red, itchy and irritated skin, an infection may cause the development of fluid oozing bumps. Eczema of the scalp affecting children can be treated with Calcarea Carb whereas Rhus-Tox (Toxicodendron) is used to treat red, itchy and swollen eruptions caused by eczema.
Urticaria - Better known as hives, this condition is caused by the inflammation of the skin due to leakage of blood vessels. Those who suffer from itchy, swollen bumps or thickened skin as in the case of chronic urticaria, can be treated with Arsenicum. Hives with heavy menstruation may be treated with Belladona, while Urtica urens is better suited to hives of gastric origin.
Psoriasis - It is characterized by red, itchy patches of skin covered with silvery scales. Plaque, guttate and pustular psoriasis are differentiated on the basis of location, appearance and severity. For guttate psoriasis, where the plaques are rounded and flakey, Arsenicum iodatum and Arsenicum album can be used while sulphur and graphites are also commonly prescribed.
