Posted on July 13 2020

Most of the time, dry skin isn’t a reason to seek out medical attention. That doesn’t mean it’s without its own set of disturbances to your daily life.

If smooth, soft skin is something you’ve been craving, you’ve come to the right place! From babies to adults, Babo Botanicals has you covered when it comes to achieving hydrated and healthy skin.

Dry Skin Symptoms

Luckily, dry skin is often temporary, showing up mainly during the winter months. For some, it’s a lifelong condition.

The symptoms you might experience with dry skin will vary depending on your age, health, where you live, and how much time you spend indoors and outdoors. Here are some signs to watch for:

  • Tightness
  • Itching
  • Roughness
  • Flaking or peeling
  • Scaly appearance
  • Cracking (may even lead to bleeding)
  • Ashiness
  • Redness

Dry Skin Causes

Now that you know the results of dry skin, you’re probably wondering what exactly causes all of these symptoms.

We mentioned some above, but other factors can play a role, too, like washing your hands frequently. The water — especially if it’s hot! — and soap can dry out your skin.

Other potential causes of dry skin include:

  • Extreme weather, such as really cold or really hot climates
  • Low humidity
  • Chemicals in some soaps, detergents, shampoos, or lotions
  • Skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis

4 Tips For Baby-Soft Skin

1) Avoid Hot Water

Whether you’re washing your hands or taking a shower, use warm water instead of hot water. If you’re washing your hands several times a day with too-hot water, it can seriously damage them.

This also applies when you’re taking a bath. If you prefer using hot water while relaxing in the tub at the end of a stressful day — and who doesn’t? — try not to soak longer than 10 or 15 minutes.

2) Choose Gentle Products

Depending on what types of products you’re using, the chemicals in them can strip the natural oils from your skin, leaving it susceptible to dryness. From your head to your toes, choose gentle products made with natural ingredients.

That’s just what we offer here at Babo Botanicals! From babies to adults, we’ve got you covered with a complete line of shampoos, conditioners, ointments, and lotions for dry skin.

Using products free of harsh chemicals will help you on your journey to what you desire: smooth and soft skin!

Gentle Products For Babies

Since babies require a little extra TLC, we formulated our baby products to target and care for their delicate skin. Give your baby the best skin care with Babo Botanicals!


To treat and care for your baby’s skin regularly, try our Moisturizing Baby Lotion. It contains the gentlest blend of nourishing botanicals and is formulated with 2% NON GMO Colloidal Oatmeal to soothe, protect, and comfort your little one’s skin.

If your baby suffers from dry, sensitive, irritated, or eczema-prone skin, try our Sensitive Baby Daily Hydra Baby Lotion - Fragrance Free. Its lightweight formula is gentle, soft, and non-greasy.

We’ve made your baby’s specific skincare needs a priority, which is why this lotion is hypoallergenic to help minimize the risk of allergic reactions and enriched with our Organic Nutri-Soothe Complex!

If your baby struggles with eczema or dry skin, make either one of these products your go-to for moisturizing!


Unfortunately, babies can sometimes develop cradle cap or dry patches on their scalp as well as their skin. It doesn’t hurt or harm your baby, but it can be uncomfortable and still needs to be treated.

Babo Botanicals’s Moisturizing Baby Shampoo & Wash helps soothe your baby’s cradle cap or dry patches.

Squeeze some of our Moisturizing Baby Shampoo & Wash onto a washcloth and gently massage your baby's hair, scalp, and body. Or simply add a small amount of this wash into the bathwater and then gently rinse your baby’s hair and skin.

With regular use, your little one’s hair will be soft and shiny!

Bringing your baby home from the hospital and giving them their first bath is a memory that lasts a lifetime. Giving them the right care for their skin can also last a lifetime!

Start out strong with great skincare products, including a gentle bubble bath.

Obviously, you won’t give your baby a bubble bath during their newborn days, but before you know it, splashing around and playing in the tub will become a daily habit.

When that time comes, try our Moisturizing Baby Bubble Bath & Wash! This gentle and mild bubble bath and wash moisturizes, soothes, and protects your baby’s skin while Avena Oat Extract and Organic Calendula calm and soften it.

The cherry on top is the big, soft, natural bubbles!

Gentle Products For Adults

Babies aren’t the only ones who suffer from dry skin. Adults can, too. The good news about Babo Botanicals’s products is that they’re perfect for the entire family!


Don’t go without our Sensitive Skin All Natural Healing Ointment - Adult & Family Care! This ointment was created for those with sensitive, dry, or eczema-prone skin. The non-greasy, healing formula is perfect for chapped hands, lips, and feet.

And if that wasn’t enough, the formula in our ointment was designed to also help relieve:

  • Itching (even from bug bites and poison ivy!)
  • Redness

Specific to adults is our Sensitive Skin Fragrance Free Daily Hydra Therapy Lotion. Formulated for adults with very sensitive, dry, or eczema-prone skin, this non-greasy and lightweight lotion immediately absorbs into your skin.

Over the years, your skin has been exposed to all different kinds of conditions, which can take a toll on its texture and health. Help relieve, soothe, moisturize, and heal your skin with either one of these lotions!


Developed for highly sensitive skin, our Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner duo will hydrate and soothe even the most delicate scalps.

In addition to gently moisturizing, this conditioner also detangles your whole family’s hair!


Babies aren’t the only ones enjoying bubble baths. Adults can, too!

And with our 3 in 1 Eucalyptus Remedy Plant Based Shampoo, Bubble Bath, and Wash, you can soothe and calm your skin while relaxing. Bonus: It’s for children and adults!

Our three-in-one product contains eucalyptus essential oil, which is known to help aid sleep and relieve coughs, congestion, and colds. While you soak in a warm bath, calm your mind, body, and skin!

3) Moisturize Your Skin Daily

Using a moisturizer helps lock in moisture and hydrate your skin. This is especially important if you suffer from dry skin! We suggest moisturizing your entire body, starting with your face.

Try Babo Botanicals’s Miracle Moisturizing Face Cream for amazing hydration and relief. This rich cream contains the perfect blend of active botanicals to help protect and smooth your skin!

Our Miracle Moisturizing Face Cream is a must-have for flare-ups or irritated skin on your face, body, and hands and works well as a daily moisturizer for adults with sensitive skin!

4) Be Consistent With Your Routine

A daily skincare routine gives your skin the best opportunity to stay soft and smooth all year long. Follow these steps every day:

  1. Start your routine by cleansing your face with gentle, fragrance-free products
  2. Apply a toner to prep your skin to absorb other, beneficial ingredients
  3. Give your skin a concentrated boost of nutrients with a serum
  4. Dab on a gentle eye cream to fight fine lines and wrinkles
  5. Apply any spot treatments you may need (i.e., for dark spots or acne)
  6. Slather on moisturizer to hydrate your skin

Bonus steps for super effective skin care: apply an oil after your moisturizer to help lock in all the beneficial ingredients you’ve just given your skin. Also, consider using sunscreen and lip balm daily for extra protection!
