Growing Up

Bye, Bye Baby Acne

Pass along this Simple.Home.Blessing.

This entry is part 14 of 29 in the series Baby Days

Are you like we were as new parents?  Absolutely in love with this precious bundle with perfect, soft skin.  Do you spend hours just sitting and watching her sleep, dream, goo, gah, and generally be perfect?

Well, you might be surprised like we were to wake up one morning (ok, it was probably the middle of the night) to see your sweet, perfectly skinned little one with tiny red spots.  It starts out small, almost imperceptible.  Then the spots multiply and redden.  Then they spread over the entire surface of baby’s face!  And if you are a new parent, you will start to wonder if she is having some sort of allergic reaction.  You will search on the internet and find all sorts of horrifying skin ailments and try to compare it to your baby’s current state of red bumpy-ness.

All to discover your little bundle, your sweet innocent, precious little child has a very grown-up sounding affliction:

BABY ACNE!

Bye Bye Baby Acne

I personally hate the word acne.  I hate calling face blemishes anything.  I hate giving them a moment of my time (yes, still somewhat horrified from puberty).  So when I found out there was a condition called baby acne, I sought out a baby acne solution immediately!  My little one would not suffer this indignity!  Oh, no, not if I could help it.

And I was so glad that a friend of mine recommended this product, Mustela PhysiOBebe,

This is the best solution to the problem of baby acne!  We started using it a couple of times a day with our little one about a week after she got the worst break out of baby acne- we were scrambling and freaking out until we found this solution.  Within a week to ten days, it was clear and it has never come back!

We have continued to use this product with our other two children and they have NEVER had baby acne!  At the slightest hint of a red bump, we simply swipe the PhysiOBebe over their faces and the red bumps never multiply!

Bye Bye Baby Acne After

We even created a song to go with it and call it spa day (see video below).  Our oldest still loves to have “spa day” and asks for it, even stands still long enough to do it!  We simply pump a small amount (one pump) onto a cotton ball and swipe over the face, neck and ears of our little ones.

 

Oh, and it smells good too! It is the perfect scent for babies!

The bottle says that you can use it on diaper areas too, but we have not used it for this purpose (though I am sure it would work!).

We love Mustela products around here, but the PhysiOBebe our absolute favorite.  We even take a small bottle with us on road trips with our girls.  I am not sure if the company could claim that it solves baby acne, but I can!  I was not paid by Mustela to recommend their product, I am just a fan who is thankful this product clears up the problem, so my girls don’t have to suffer the indignity of acne!  Well, at least not until they are teenagers!

But I have discovered recently that Mustela has a rewards program for their fans!  If you want to try Mustela for your little one and want to join their rewards club, please let them know I sent you by entering this code: 440748 when they ask who referred you.

get rid of baby acne with Mustela Physi0Bebe and get rewarded with their rewards program.

UPDATED:  It just gets better over at Mustela.  I just received the above email letting me know that all new members for their rewards program get a FREE travel set and FREE shipping on their first order.  You have to purchase at least one item and then add the code NEWMEMBER (after signing up for the program)!  Not bad at ALL!

NOTE: Baby acne is a condition that will go away on it’s own, but I truly believe this product helped to speed along the process.  Plus, I just love pampering my little ones!

    I love mustela products! I used the face wash and lotion when I was younger, and it cleared the little white bumps I got on my face. We didn’t really have a problem with baby acne with my son once we got home from the hospital, but we used mustela bodywash just in case. The no wash soap is perfect for face washes!

      I love all their products too! We use their shampoo and lotion as well as their diaper cream (but we don’t need it often, not plagued with diaper rash, thankfully).

    Wow! That is awesome. I will have to mention this to my cousin and try it for myself! Thanks for the recommendation.

    As a midwife of over 30 years experience, have not heard of this “baby acne” This rash is perfectly normal and will settle down on its own , There is no need for any lotions or potions ,and I’m guessing that this lotion will be quite expensive. If you must use anything, then any simple oil(olive oil) will help with the dry skin. (A small amount just gently put on the areas) and if you don’t use it you can cook with it!

      Thanks Penny, for the tip! As I said in the post, it will go away without much treatment, but this product truly helped to abate it. Deciding to spend the money on the product turned out to be worth it for us as a family. We used it to gently cleanse our girls’ faces throughout their first years and only had to purchase one bottle.

    Question!

    I recently bought this product for my 4 week old who has ‘baby acne’. I used it yesterday and today it seems the acne worsened significantly overnight! I’m a little confused about your statement above – are you saying that your lo’s acne worsened and then got better after using for a week?

    Thank you in advance!

      I would give it a few days to clear up. We applied it 1-2 times a day for about a week and it cleared up and stayed cleared up. I hope this helps and I hope it works for your little one! Congratulations on your sweet 4 week old!
