BABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: BABY SKIN CARE RANGES FOR SENSITIVE AND ECZEMA PRONE SKIN

first_imgBABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: Hello you beautiful people. Another week of fabulous weather. We’re being spoilt and long may it last!This week I’ll be sharing some of my favourite baby skin care products with you all. As you know, baby’s skin is very delicate. Fragrances, detergents and some baby products can often cause skin irritation.If your little one has sensitive skin, then you will know that it is hard and often expensive finding the right products to suit their skin.Ava has inherited her sensitive skin from me unfortunately. She suffered from mild eczema in the earlier months and continues to get the occasional flare up.Whether you’re looking for some gentle bath time products or something to relieve symptoms of dry skin or eczema, hopefully some of the following ranges might suit you. Childs Farm: Childs farm are by far my favourite products. They are made using natural ‘free-from’ ingredients and essential oils to produce mild and gentle care for the skin and hair of new-borns, babies and children. All products are dermatologically tested and paediatrician approved. The bubble bath makes bath time a little bit more fun as I found with other brands of bubble bath for eczema prone skin the bubbles disappeared really quickly.I also love the moisturiser. It is light weight, dries quickly and leaves Ava’s skin feeling soft and fresh. All of these products smell amazing and you can buy travel sized bottles which come in handy when going on holiday.  Since using these products Ava has not had any skin irritations.You can browse and purchase their products here.Aveeno Baby:These products were recommended to me by my health visitor. The Aveeno Baby brand offer skin and hair care products. The products are specially formulated with active naturals to help nourish, soothe and protect your little ones sensitive skin. Their creams are fragrance-free, easy to apply, don’t leave any residue but leaves your baby’s skin super soft and lovely. Products are suitable for babies from 3 months and are so gentle they can be used on anyone with sensitive or dry skin. This brand is also paediatrician recommended. Find the Aveeno baby Range here:Cussons Mum & Me: I became familiar with Cussons products when I received a gift set before Ava was born. Cussons Baby Range is great as part of a bed time routine. The lavender scent is not at all overpowering and the products genuinely seem to have a calming effect.Ava loves a baby massage after her baths so the massage oil has become my favourite product and one which I buy regularly. It contains a blend of Jasmine and Aloe Vera which helps soothe the skin.  It is also hypo allergic and paediatrician approved. Browse their products here.Moo Goo:Finally, I was recommended this brand by a friend. I have only tried the nappy balm so far and it has worked wonders. It is the perfect thickness; thick enough to leave a barrier but without being sticky or rubbing away when in contact with the nappy or causing any further irritation. It includes anti-yeast ingredients which is perfect because along with urea, yeast is one of the main causes of nappy rash.I have tried some of the MooGoo products myself from the adult range and absolutely loved them.Find the Moogoo range here.Like most things in the world of parenting, it is all down to personal preference.However, I hope this article has been of some use to you.Thanks for reading,Áine xBABY STEPS WITH ÁINE: BABY SKIN CARE RANGES FOR SENSITIVE AND ECZEMA PRONE SKIN was last modified: June 10th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Baby ColumnBaby Steps with AineFeaturesMoo Goonewslast_img read more

Killybegs hoping for a ‘reality check’ with new digital community project

first_imgKillybegs has been invited to take part with a number of top universities, museums and technology companies in an international three-year, multi-million euro project to bring history to life through digital augmented reality apps.The Killybegs History & Heritage Committee received the invitation from Judith McCarthy, Curator of Donegal County Museum.This is the only group in Ireland to be involved in the project which is being led by Museum Nord in Oslo and also involves top-level participants in Iceland and Scotland. The project is entitled “Connected Culture & Natural Heritage in the Northern Environment”, (CINE for short) and is subtitled “See into the past”.Judith McCarthy, who is also a member of the board of the National Museum of Ireland, said that Donegal County Museum has a very key role to play in preserving and protecting our cultural inheritance, “not only because of it’s importance to the local community but also it’s intrinsic value from a national and international perspective.”The digital input to the Killybegs project will be provided by a high-level team from Ulster University Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment, led by Dr Joan Condell.Said Mr Derek Vial, chairman of Killybegs History & Heritage Committee: “We are honoured and delighted to be invited to take part in this fascinating project which will have major long-term benefits for the town and its heritage. “Killybegs is a designated Histoic & Heritage Town with major historical and archaeological riches. This work will help to ensure the preservation of those treasures and will also make them available in new and exciting ways for students and visitors.”Thanking Ms McCarthy for her invitation to participate, Mr Vial added that the first phase of the work in the town would be centred around the heritage complex at St Catherine’s Well, Kit’s Castle and St Catherine’s Church and Graveyard.In this regard, he said, a tremendous vote of thanks was due to the St Catherine’s community response scheme, led by Hugh Boyle and Philip Kemp, which had carried out painstaking research over many years, culminating in the publication of their book, “St Catherine’s Church and Graveyard and the Medieval Town of Killybegs”.Others involved in this project include St Andrew’s University in Scotland, Oslo University in Norway and the Gunnar Gunnarssons Institute in Iceland.A meeting was held in Killybegs last week attended by representatives of Ulster University and Donegal County Museum to view the St Catherine’s complex and discus the outline of the project with Killybegs History & Heritage Committee. It was explained that CINE “aims to transform people’s experiences of outdoor heritage sites through technology, building on the idea of ‘museums without walls’.”The meeting was told that: “New digital interfaces such as augmented reality, virtual-world technology and easy-to-use apps will bring the past alive and help to imagine the future.”Said Judith McCarthy: “We will develop content management toolkits enabling curators, archivists, historians and anyone who wants to create innovative heritage projects to create unique on-site and off-site customer experiences in specific locations.“More broadly, CINE will explore the social, economic and political role of heritage within our remote communities and develop best practice to shape relevant environmental policies.” Killybegs hoping for a ‘reality check’ with new digital community project was last modified: November 14th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:digitaldonegalKillybegsprojectlast_img read more
