Dry skin on cheeks


My little girl has developed really dry skin on her cheeks?

She has a little dry skin around her eyebrows too, does anyone know what might be causing this, or what I can do to treat it?

She doesn't have dry skin anywhere else so I'm not sure what it could be?

Abi has dry skin on her cheeks too and I think it's from the wind when she sits in her pushchair, I just put a bit of E45 on before we go out and before bed, it seems to help.

She's probably still adjusting to the outside world. My LO was like this up until about 7 weeks old. I washed her face with warm boiled water and put Olivie oil on her skin. It helped a lot.

E45 is good for this and also if you are BF, breast milk can also help by rubbing some onto LOs cheeks xx

My DD used to get this when she was a baby again from the wind when she was sitting in a forward facing pushchair.

I used to put Aven Magic Cream on it, not sure if its available anymore though I've not looked for it, and it cleared up straight away and protected her skin from it happening again
