Protecting Your Baby’s Skin In The Winter
The winter can be rough on your skin, particularly if it is sensitive. So it is very important to take care of your baby’s skin in the winter. Your little one’s skin can be sensitive to winter elements. Here are some tips on how Formula 2 can help as well as some testimonials from our customers.
Heat Rash and Diaper Rash
When you take your baby out, you obviously need to bundle her/him up. However, excess layers can cause heat rash in some cases if your baby becomes overheated. So it is best to dress them in breathable layers and remove one if they are hot. If your baby does get a heat rash (itchy red bumps), then an alcohol-free moisturizer can help relieve the itchiness. Diaper rash can also form as a result of the excessive heat from the diaper and additional layers. To minimize occurrence, change your baby’s diaper as soon as it is soiled and allow your baby to go diaperless when you are at home. This will permit the skin to breathe. You should also use a moisturizer/barrier cream combination to provide some relief from any existing irritation while protecting them from recurring poopies and peepees.
If for any reason your baby’s skin develops bright red rashes particularly in the diaper area or under skin folds, it is recommended that you use an anti-yeast cream or a cream that may contain anti-yeast ingredients.
If you take your baby out in the winter, the cold can extract the moisture from their lips, thereby making them chapped. So how do you protect them? Simple, apply a barrier cream that will help protect and moisturize their lips. It is best if you use an alcohol and fragrance free product.
Exposing your baby to the winter elements can create some risk of frostnip to certain parts of their bodies – nose, cheeks, ears, fingers, and toes. Ensuring that as many of those parts are properly covered in hats, mittens, earmuffs, and warm socks will minimize this risk. It is also a good idea to protect them with a moisturizer/barrier cream combination. This will help fight off the frostnip and prevent any damage to the skin.
The sun’s rays can be just as harmful during the winter as they are in the summer. If you are taking your baby out for a stroll in the park or the city, make sure to protect their skin with sunscreen of at least SPF 30.
Regardless of how often you bathe your baby, make sure you are not using water that is too warm or shampoos that contain fragrance or alcohol. Those things can lead to red, flaky skin on their body. Also during winter, because of the cold weather, there is less moisture in the air. This can also contribute to drying out your baby’s skin. To minimize the risk of dry, red, or flaky skin, use a moisturizer that is free of alcohol and fragrance right after giving your baby a bath. This will help your baby retain their natural moisture and protect their skin against the elements.
If your baby is affected by eczema, the winter can cause more flare ups. This is because of the lack of moisture in the air. Bathing your baby can help as long as you use a gentle non soap cleanser. Avoid any products that contain alcohol or fragrance. Immediately after each bath, use a moisturizer/barrier cream to help seal in the moisture provided by the water.

"Thank you so much for this wonderful cream!!! My son has hirschprung's disease and recently had a colostomy reversal. As part of this post op surgery issues/concerns, most children have SEVERE diaper rash and he did!!! I tried everything, even prescription diaper cream. The only thing that worked and worked well was the Formula 2 Skin Care Cream. It significantly healed his severe rash within a few days. I still use it daily as this may be a problem for years. I love it and highly recommend it to anyone with skin care issues. It works GREAT!!!!" - Anonymous
"I used Formula 2 on a diaper rash that my daughter developed and was not healed by other national brands. Formula 2 took the diaper rash away in two days." - B. Anderson, Delaware
"As a pediatric occupational therapist and a new mom, my hands have never been drier from repeated washings! I have wasted too much money on various skin creams as they get rinsed down the drain every time I wash my hands. Formula 2 is by far the best cream I've ever used because it stops the dryness cycle dead in its tracks. Just one application in the morning and my hands retain a soft, supple feel all day long! This cream gets absorbed deep into the skin where it repairs and protects like no product I've used before. In addition, I've discovered that Formula 2 is the most effective diaper cream to clear up and prevent rashes for my 10 month old son. When he recently suffered from an intestinal virus that caused severe diaper rash with open sores, I tried every diaper cream available without success. Formula 2 cleared it up within 12 hours and his wounds were healed within a day!! It is always in my diaper bag and purse. I don't leave the house without Formula H anymoreM." - D'agostino, MS ORT/L
"Our granddaughter had a colostomy, which was reversed in July. The surgeon recommended another product which we began using prior to the reversal. Her diaper rash was unreal. Other parents of colostomy reversals indicate it has been a problem for them also. We tried everything and nothing worked, until we tried your cream. We have used four jars since August and I just ordered two more. It really does work! We plan on telling our surgeon and other parents with the same problem." - R. Hearn, Georgia
"I had a baby last year and began using Formula 2 on him immediately after his birth. My son had never developed diaper rash in ten months. Until I ran out of Formula 2 and began using a major national brand of diaper rash cream. While I was using this other product, he developed diaper rash within a week. I began using Formula 2 again immediately and will never use anything else. It is a great product which is a great value for the money. I highly recommend it." - S. Clatworthy, Delaware
"I can't say enough about Formula 2. It is the best product ever made. If you have dry skin, diaper rash problems, or itchy dry skin on any part of your body Formula 2 can clear up the situation overnight. One time I was having pictures taken of my daughters and they had the rosy, dry red cheeks from being out in the cold wind all day. I gave them a nice warm bath and put Formula 2 all over their cheeks and sent them to bed. The next morning their cheeks looked perfectly normal. Everybody should know about this product, because it is so effective and there is nothing out there like it. I just want to thank you for producing this product." - D. Gardner, Wilmington, DE
"We began using Formula 2 for my husband's hands, that were cracked with lacerations and deep wounds that bled. Formula 2 is the only cream on the market that actually healed his hands....When my children were babies, we used Formula 2 for diaper rash and it healed the problem overnight....I have been using Formula 2 on the fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes and can see drastic results." - D. Dillon, Maryland
"Being a mom and a speech therapist, I am constantly washing my hands in water or using anti-bacterial hand sanitizer both at work between clients and at home after diaper changes, messy meals, cleaning, etc. At one point, my hands were so dry and cracked they started to bleed. I tried different creams and hand lotions I had at home and from the drugstore, and nothing seemed to improve the quality of my skin. Then I found out about Formula 2 and immediately my hands began to heal. In a few days, all the cracks healed and my hands were soft again!! The biggest difference I found between Formula 2 and other creams is the protective barrier it leaves on your skin. I was amazed at how well my skin was protected and had maintained moisture after multiple hand washings! The product is wonderful and my whole family now uses Formula 2, especially on diaper rashes and dry skin. I recommend it to all my co-workers, clients and friends." - M. Terzaghi, MS CCC-SLP

I also use it for myself on dry chapped hands in the winter. Thank you for a great product." - C. Duffy-Ryder, R.Ph
