When you’re a new parent, you try to be as prepared as possible for every situation. One thing most parents don’t learn about or can’t prepare for before birth is the possibility of dealing with baby skin care or baby acne.
Baby acne is a common skin condition that usually shows up a couple weeks after baby’s birth, though some newborns are born with baby acne. Baby acne should not be confused with milia, which are tiny white bumps on baby’s face or body that feel hard and do not look like they can be extracted. (Never try to pop any bump or blemish on baby’s skin!)
Experts have yet to agree upon a single cause of baby acne, but many believe that it’s caused by mom’s hormones during the end of pregnancy. One thing we do know is that baby acne and adult acne or adolescent acne are not quite the same, mainly due to the fact that acne later in life can easily be traced to its root cause. Baby acne also differs from regular acne in that it generally does not return after it has resolved.
Regardless of what causes baby acne, most parents want to help their baby’s skin heal and stay healthy.
That’s where ATOPALM comes in.
