Me, You, and Cerave – A Realistic Mommy and Baby Skin Care Routine

Wait! A skincare routine? With a baby? Yes, you’ve read that right. Make that plural —kids! While some of you may be shrugging already, I assure you it is definitely doable and comfortable enough to fit in with your hectic schedule. Sure, before having my little ones, I had the leisure of time to do whatever I please. Now, I am on a very limited time. I’d be lucky enough to even be able to squeeze an extra cup of coffee. Also, if that is the case, I can still care for my skin … because my day to day beauty regimen isn’t complicated at all.

Finally! Right? A much-needed “Realistic Postpartum Skincare” that any moms can maintain and see-through. You can be a seasoned mom, a first-timer, millennial, or somewhere along those lines, and still wing this approach like a PRO. There goes that sounding “HOW” and a 1001 “BUT’s”. The answer is simple …

Not that simple? Well yeah! Nothing ever comes easy at first. Not even changing a diaper. But after doing it at least once, you’d be like “I should have been doing this in the first place!”. All babies have routines. If you simply adjust how you handle each bath time, or even when you have to tidy up around, you got this right away. If you have older ones, include them in the process, and in turn they’re also having fun!

Here’s what works for us … and maybe an approach that you can try or tweak to fit your needs.

CeraVe Baby Skin CarePIN IT!

    1. Whenever I get the boys changed and ready for the day I always squeeze a quick face wash. I love and use CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser, it is very gentle and has a rich, silky lather. While it does feel a bit milky and too creamy, don’t let that texture fool you to thinking it might make you oily afterwards. It delivers squeaky clean skin without stripping!

    2. After cleaning my face, I proceed with the rest of my morning tasks and prepare the boys for breakfast. When I am tidying them up or when I am about to wash the dishes, I squeeze a quick “ME-time” and apply a toner and CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion. It’s my preferred moisturizer these days for its oil-free, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic formulation and can be used on both face and body. The biggest plus is that it is accepted by the National Eczema Association.

Throughout the day, if and when I have the chance is when I squeeze in other facial treatments or hair care. So if you’re wondering why am I scaring my kids with a face mask or a mud mask, it’s my quick DIY spa treatment time at home. I try my very best to do it when they’re napping since I don’t need to do treatments daily. But when I can’t help it, it is what it is.

One thing we have established in our household is a daily bath routine.

    1. I start everything off with CeraVe Baby Wash & Shampoo -gentle for daily use and suitable even for those with sensitive skin. I love that it is allergy tested, tear free, fragrance-free, and free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates & dyes.

    2. Then followed by CeraVe Baby Moisturizing Lotion -to protect and maintain baby’s delicate skin. On top of protecting the skin from drying, it also relieves chafed, chapped or cracked skin with essential ceramides and vitamins.

    3. I wrap up their routine with CeraVe Baby Healing Ointment -it helps treat and prevent diaper rash. It is a skin protectant that helps seal out wetness with ceramides and the best part is that it is lanolin free!

I love giving my boys their bath at night. It’s the perfect approach to help them relax and wind down. It gives them that one-on-one me time with mommy so we get to bond, and at the same time get to have some water sensory play. Yep, multitasking done at its finest.


Here’s the take away. Both of our kids happen to have sensitive skin. They tend to break out with certain products. Even if it’s a well known diapers or baby brand, they still have breakouts or rashes. So I have to be very careful with my choices. Oh, and if that’s not enough … Josiah King also has Tinea Versicolor and Hezekiah Champ has Eczema. Major face palm moment. This is what makes CeraVe a favorite for us especially since it has the National Eczema Association seal.

    I love that they have a baby line. These sound like great products for my new grandbaby.

  • Brianne

    Cerave is one of my favorite skincare lines! I WISH they’d had this when my kids were babies. Since they didn’t, all I can do is tell all moms to get it. Cerave is AH-mazing.

  • Lisa Favre

    My skin is always incredibly dry and I’ve heard such wonders about Cerave products. Definitely need to pick up their body lotion!

  • Jennifer Prince

    CeraVe has such fab products. I wasn’t aware that they had a baby line – it sounds fabulous!

  • Heather

    I love that they have a Mommy and baby line! I haven’t tried this brand yet, but it sounds great!

  • Lauryn Hock

    I swear by CerVe and have it in our shower for face washing. It’s so gentle, yet helps my sensitive skin stay acne-free

  • JP

    Though I’m not one who does skincare routine, I know my wife would appreciate it. It’s important to know what kind of products we’re using for our babies.

  • Celebrate Woman Today

    I know this brand from the skin care routine. But they do have a baby version, which is awesome.

  • Angie Agerter

    I love products that are easy to use and make self-care so much better. This brand does that with ease. Thanks for sharing!

  • Sherry

    Both of my kids had sensitive skin when they were babies and still do. It was a lot of trial and error to find something that didn’t irritate them. I wish CeraVe had a baby line back then. Breaking up your skin care routine throughout the day is a great idea. It’s easier to accomplish in little increments.

  • Helena maRz

    I never tried this brand but it sounds like it would work for my dry skin! Thank you for this❤️

  • The Joyous Living

    The healing ointment sounds amazing. It reminds me of when I used baby oil before moisturizing after the shower. always did a good job sealing in the moisture.

  • Matt Taylor

    Interesting, I had no idea skin care was done with babies too. Seem like some legit products!

  • Catalina

    Thanks for sharing these tips. I would like to try this skin care products! My kid is not a baby any more but he has a delicate skin!

    I don’t have a baby yet though, but I’m trying to look for a baby skincare for me, is that bad? Lol. Guess I’ll this one!

  • Lucy Clarke

    Living for skin care! It’s great to give our skins the needed TLC and a perfect activity to establish routines with the little ones as well. I love that these products are really gentle to our babies’ sensitive skins too. Thank you for sharing!

    I love that there is a skincare line that is gentle enough for adults and babies, and that is effective, too! I also love the idea of taking care of yourself with your child.

  • Emily

    This looks like an excellent skincare range that is soft on the baby’s skin. Looks really soft and gentle.

  • Stephanie

    I had no idea that Cerave had children’s products. Good to know when I pass on info to my mom friends. I’ve never personally tried this brand, but I’ve heard everyone sing their praises throughout my entire life. Maybe this is a sign that I need to give them a go!

  • Crystal Green

    This product has a great reputation. I haven’t tried it yet, but I have considered it several times.

  • World in Eyes

    have heard lot about the CeraVe products they are damn useful and very helpful indeed…glad you shared this reaview with us..

  • joanna

    I don’t have children but I can imagine that for a mother, it’s very important to make sure she uses all the best products for her baby’s skin. And babies do have such delicate skin.


    It’s great to hear the cleanser doesn’t leave skin feeling oily. I look for oil-free items especially as my skin doesn’t like them much.

  • Shilpa bindlish

    I always trust quality baby care items despite being expensive. Though this brand is new for me.

    Cerave looks like a very gentle line for babies, especially for having such sensitive skin!
