Difference between adult skin and baby skin

An adult’s skin is usually exposed to multiple things like harsh climate, environmental changes, chemicals, etc. that tend to have an unwanted impact on it. On the other hand, a baby's skin is delicate, tender and sensitive. The skin of an infant is still developing. The epidermis of a baby's skin is one third the thickness of an adult skin. Hence, dirt and bacteria can easily penetrate through the immature barrier of a baby's skin.

The sweat glands of an infant are less effective, which means that the baby's skin absorbs and loses moisture easily. Due to this the function of temperature regulation of a baby's body is much lesser as compared to that of an adult. Sebum and Melanin are also produced less in a baby's skin. All this means that the baby’s skin calls for more attention and care.
