Hence, ensure to retain the skin's moisture during summer which will help keep the skin hydrated," says Dr. Subhashini N.S., Ayurveda Expert, The Himalaya Drug Company.

  • Natural Ingredients for the Skin: Whether it is a wash, soap, lotion, prickly heat powder, or diaper rash cream, ensure you use products enriched with ingredients that help keep the skin cool and refreshed. Ingredients like calamine, neem, vetiver, watermelon, lemon oil, yashada bhasma, aloe vera, and almond Oil, help soothe the skin from the soaring temperature and reduce discomfort.
  • Bath Helps Cool Sensitive Skin: During bath time, it is advisable to use a wash or soap infused with watermelon, neem, and lemon oil. The ingredients work together to keep the skin refreshed. Watermelon and lemon help cool the skin and neem help manage rashes and itching.
  • Powder to Manage Prickly Heat: Prickly heat is a common skin concern during summer, which is the appearance of tiny, itchy bumps on the skin. Apart from dressing baby in comfortable clothing, using a prickly heat powder after a bath and before bedtime can help heal rashes and provide relief from prickly heat. A prickly heat powder infused with neem and vetiver helps to refresh the skin by managing excessive sweating and itching.
