Treat your baby’s skin to super soft and gentle Infacare baby bath range… plus WIN! A set of bathcare for your little one!

baby, beauty

InfaCare’s bubbly bath time treats are formulated especially for baby’s skin; both the
original ‘Infacare Baby Bath’ and the ‘Infacare Night Time Baby Bath’ are ultra-mild and pH balanced with masses of long-lasting bubbles, making them very popular with parents and little ones!  A baby’s skin is ten times more delicate than adult skin so InfaCare is formulated to be as natural and gentle as possible.  Recommended by hospital midwives and healthcare professionals, the Infacare bubble baths have been clinically tested and developed to promote natural levels of acidity and alkalinity in skin and hair. Reassuringly, each is designed to prevent irritation, and mums say it helps with allergies.

Recently launched, Night Time Baby Bath is fast becoming a favourite with mums across the country; with up to 70% describing it as ‘ideal’ for their bedtime routine.  You don’t need to use much of either of the & Infacare Baby Bath’ or the ‘Infacare Night Time Baby Bath’ to produce masses of long-lasting bubbles, perfect for  little ones to have fun with and the gentle, powdery fragrance helps to relax, easing tots first into bed and then off to sleep.

Is your hair in much need of R&R (Rescue & repair)? Then this R&R shampoo, £15 & conditioner, £16 – set (50ml each), Grow Gorgeous is perfect for you!

This duo is created specifically to:-

Repair, protect and strengthen hair damaged by bleaching and excessive heat styling. | Reinforce hair fibres, increasing strength and elasticity so hair is resilient to breakage. | Intensely nourish and condition dry, weak strands to leave hair hydrated, smooth and soft.

We took it away on holiday with us, to help cleanse harsh chlorine away from the pool plu to nourish and hydrate – sea salty beach hair too! It left us with super soft hair, and the 50ml is the perfect travel size to take with you everywhere you go!

Other tips: Avoiding sun damage to hair requires many of the same practises as protecting our skin from the sun. This includes avoiding over exposure to direct sunlight between the hours of 10am and 4pm when the UV light is strongest. If you have to go out, it’s best to wear a sunhat to keep those strands as protected as possible.
