7 Reasons We All Need Sudocrem 

I’m pretty sure every mum in the UK..and maybe elsewhere as well, has a tub of Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream at home to use in case of baby rash. What I didn’t know and you may have not know however is that this cream is useful for so many other things. 

I bought the cream as you do when I gave birth and used it a couple of times when it seemed as though the little lady had a nappy rash but other than that it’s pretty much been sitting untouched amongst the baby stuff. It wasn’t until a few days ago that someone suggested that I use it on my daughter’s eczema rash around her neck that I finally came to appreciate its healing powers. I’ve mentioned in past posts that my girl has very dry skin and as of late she’s developed what the doctors describe as eczema on her neck which is the worst place to have a rash or anything for that matter because the area is often wet and now that she’s started teething, it’s usually covered in saliva. 

Less than a week ago, I started using the cream around her neck after her bath and I can honestly say the rash/eczema is gone. To think I wasted money on expensive creams….

Sudocream is said to be good for the skin because it has anhydrous hypoallergenic lanolin which is an emollient that helps to not only soothe the skin but also soften it. The Benzyl alcohol formula in the cream gives it its antiseptic properties. 

Here are just some of the benefits of using this healing cream: 

1. Nappy Rash – as I previously said most people know this cream for its effectiveness in healing nappy rash. It works as an emollient and is clinically proven to soothe and heal babies’ delicate skin. It also soothes sore and inflamed skin. 

2. Anaesthetic- not only are the ingredients recognised for their healing properties, the cream also has a mild local anaesthetic which helps to ease pain and soothe any discomfort. 

3. Cuts & Minor Burns – Sudocrem is known to provide effective relief from everyday cuts and grazes as well as minor burns. It reduces the risk of infection by forming a protective layer over the wound.

4. Acne & Other Skin Conditions – the inexpensive cream can also be used as a mask to treat skin conditions such as acne. I have to say that it’s very thick and can feel heavy on the face but it’s worth it. Your face will feel soft and smooth as a baby’s bottom (pun intended)! 

5. Eczema – funnily enough, it does say on the tub that it can be used for eczema but I somehow missed that until now. Because this conditions can cause cracked and sore skin that can be painful and difficult to keep hydrated, Sudocrem can be used to calm, soothe and heal the eczema. 

6. Cracked Heels – summer is upon us (well…almost) and that means less Boots and more sandals. For softer heels,apply thecream, put socks on, and allow to seep in overnight. 

7. Primer – this is a beauty hack I wasn’t aware of before but applying a tad bit of Sudocrem as a primer before applying makeup will provide the skin with a thin barrier so that the foundation can be applied without sinking into pores. It’s rather thick so only a small amount is necessary for a matte finish.
This just goes to show that it’s not always about fancy, pricey products to get the job done. Sometimes it’s the very thing sitting in your cabinet you’ve been ignoring. 

Love,

    Oh wow. I can’t believe that jar of Sudocrem has a lot of uses. I have to get some for the house. That is so economical to have just one preparation for the common skin issues of the family.
