Sudocrem - The Best Skincare Product?

Sunday, 19 April 2015

We've had a pot of Sudocrem in the house for as long as I can remember, any rash, cut or sore, mum would suggest using a bit of Sudocrem to help make it better. Although I'm not a mum myself, having spoken to many, they wouldn't dream of leaving the house without a pot of Sudocrem in their baby's changing bag. There's no questioning that having been around for years, it does what it says on the tin, an 'Antiseptic Healing Cream' recommended for use on nappy rash, eczama and surface wounds. However, being a thick consistency, I would never have dreamt of using it on my face, until a few months ago.

I'm very lucky with my skin, although I went through 'the spotty stage' whilst I was a teenager, as I've grown out of my teenage years, my skin has cleared up a great deal. However, there's no escaping the odd spot, especially around that time of the month, when my skin does start to become a bit more oily, blemished and I suffer from a break out. It always resulted in lots of concealer to help cover it up, without actually trying to get rid of the spot itself. Whilst at university, one of my friends swore by Sudocrem for spots and would often send me snapchats of white patches all over her face where she'd applied Sudocrem. Since then, I thought it would be worth giving it a try, at £2.99 for a 125g pot from Boots, there wasn't much to lose. Now I use it all the time! I apply a tiny amount to the affected area and if I'm going to bed, I won't rub it in completely, instead allowing it to soak in throughout the night. However, if I apply it in the morning, I make sure I rub it in well! There is no doubt about how effective this underrated product is for spots, I wish I knew about its use whilst in my teens.It really reduces the size of the spot, helps bring it to a head and helps to clear it up and I would recommend it for anyone struggling with acne. Also, I have heard of people using it as a face mask, but I'm still reluctant to apply a large amount to my face as it is rather thick - perhaps I'll give it a try one day.

Have you used Sudocrem for spots? Or do you have any good ideas for helping to clear up spots?
