How to take care of newborn skin? Ask Dr Maulik Shah

Newborn skin is quit immature and sensitive. It lacks keratin’s protective cover over it. Keratin is dead tissue which covers viable skin at exposed part of skin. This tissue is made up of dead cells of skin. In fullterm newborn, it takes 7 days for the keratin to form and in pre-term it may take upto 14 days. So the skin is quite immature at this age which needs extra care.
