Sudocrem is a beauty saviour
Sudocrem is so much more than just a nappy rash cream it is a genuine beauty saviour – no really, honestly it is!
I am a big fan of Sudocrem and I always have a pot or a little tube handy.
I think Steve has lost count of the amount of times I’ve said “Sudocrem is the answer” or “Just pop some Sudocrem on!”.
Ways to use Sudocrem
Zap your angry spots and red areas
I wouldn’t recommend doing it more often than once a week but when I do it I really do notice a good difference with my skin.
It also creates a nice barrier and won’t be rinsed away with mere warm water.
Reduce acne scarring
If you gently massage the cream into your skin it can also help with acne scars.
This happened to me a couple of weeks ago and thankfully I had a small tube of Sudocrem in my makeup bag.
I used aftersun immediately after my evening shower and then before bed I applied Sudocrem wherever I was red.
Sudocrem is a lot thicker than normal moisturiser which means it won’t soak into your skin straight away and will leave it feeling soothed and hydrated.
It was absolute bliss for my sun scorched skin!
Care for your cuticles
Healthy looking cuticles can really improve the overall look of your nails and hands.
So next time you’re giving yourself a manicure, rub some Sudocrem into your nail bed and cuticles, it will moisturise the area and leave your hands looking lovely!
Take the sting out of insect bites
Next time you go away on holiday pack a tub in your case and let it work its magic!
Prevent hair dye stains
A common trick is to rub some Vaseline over any exposed skin, but you can also use Sudocrem which works in the same way.
I usually use Vaseline but when I’ve not had any to hand Sudocrem has worked really well.
Sudocrem is not only great for preventing chafing but if the problem has already happened, the cream can help to soothe the area and stop it from getting any worse!
Pacify plucked eyebrows
Simply spread a thin layer of Sudocrem over the sore area and it should soothe it straight away.
This also works a treat on areas of skin that have just been shaved and are feeling a little sore and sensitive.
Helps with cuts and grazes
It’ll stop the burning feeling in your skin when you have a graze and it’ll moisturise your skin around the cut and will stop any infection entering through the open cut
