Tips for Sensitive Skin with Tide

I used to say my second child had sensitive skin because her skin would be red and blotchy all the time, just from touching her. In reality though, it was no big deal. It didn’t bother her and the red marks went away quickly. Baby #4 has Eczema and we are still trying to figure out what makes it flare up.

I’m currently still using baby laundry soap but when she is over a year and I’ve run out of the stash I have, I don’t want to have to buy more. Tide has always been our go-to laundry brand, ever since I still lived at home. I’ve used other brands owned by the same company (P&G) like Gain and they are good too but I still prefer Tide. I’ve been worrying about if Tide will cause problems with her skin but now I can try new Tide Pods Free & Gentle which is free of dyes and perfumes.

I haven’t tested it out yet but I’d like to see if it makes a difference compared to regular Tide in her skin and even mine. I’ve never been diagnosed with sensitive skin but I’m ALWAYS itchy. I mean always. I joke that I’m allergic to air. I don’t have anything on my skin that makes me think I have eczema but I’ve long wondered if I have some condition that just doesn’t show on the surface. I am interested to see if switching to the new Free & Gentle soap makes a difference in my itchiness. Only time will tell.

I’d like to share some Sensitive Skin tips from a Canadian dermatologist, Dr. Sandy Skotnicki. If you have any tips to add, be sure to let us know in the comments.

Tips for Sensitive Skin

  1. Avoid fragrances and or botanicals in your daily washing, soaps, detergents and moisturizers, as they can be both irritants and allergens. Test out a detergent like the new Tide Pods Free & Gentle. For people with sensitive skin seeking a detergent free of dyes and perfumes, Tide Pods Free & Gentle provides a deep clean that leaves behind no dyes or perfumes on fabrics, for gentleness on skin.
  2. Stick to non-foaming “soaps” in the shower.  They do not strip the skin of its natural oils.
  3. Only shower or bath once a day. Water dries out the skin.
  4. Make sure that you keep bathing times to under 15 minutes and avoid using hot water.
  5. After bathing, pat dry. Rubbing your body with a towel will remove moisture and further dry out your skin.
