Read on to learn more about bathing basics as well as bath and body care products.
Do I need to moisturize after taking a bath or shower?
Yes. According to the Mayo Clinic1, moisturizer is a necessary part of your skin care routine because it helps prevent and treat dry skin. You should always apply moisturizer after bathing or showering, while your skin is still damp. The moisturizer will help trap water in your skin.

My loved one has incontinence. What’s the best way to bathe them?
Because their skin is especially sensitive and at-risk of damage from repeated exposure to moisture, it’s important to be very gentle while washing. If you’d like to bathe your loved one in bed, carefully place a large towel underneath them. Fill a basin with warm, soapy water and gently wash their perineal area with a soft washcloth.
If you find that process inconvenient or too messy, you may want to try a no-rinse cleanser. These special formulations are easy to use: simply spray and gently wipe with a soft washcloth, no rinsing required. There are head-to-toe formulas available as well as targeted cleanser for the perineal area.
Premoistened personal wet wipes are another option that’s great for quick cleanups.

How often do I need to give my baby a bath?
According to the Mayo Clinic2, three times a week might be enough until baby gets bigger and starts walking. Washing baby more often may lead to dry skin.

Can I use baby lotion after baby’s bath?
The Mayo Clinic3 says that you can use a small amount of unscented lotion if baby’s skin is very dry. However, most newborns don’t need lotion after a bath.

How are Medline bath and body products different?
Because all of our Medline brand products were created for hospital and healthcare use, they’re gentle – yet effective – for even fragile skin. Many of them can be used for the entire family. In addition, many of our products provide targeted relief for skin that’s at-risk of moisture-related damage.
Olivamine is the star ingredient in Medline’s premier Remedy Olivamine skin care line. Olivamine is a proprietary blend of: 3 amino acids that are the main building blocks of collagen; vitamins A, B3, B6, C and D3; antioxidants that help neutralize free radicals; and MSM which also has antioxidant properties.
Olivamine skin care products are different because they don’t contain harsh soaps or detergents. Instead, Olivamine lotions, cleansers and skin protectants contain only naturally-derived phospholipids to gently lift dirt and oils from the skin. This gentle formulation is especially ideal for damaged skin because it helps ensure the structure and integrity of the already compromised skin is not damaged further. Olivamine products are also pH balanced, non-cytotoxic, non-sensitizing and non-allergenic.
