Being a new mom often means having skipping out any treats. You even avoid the “affordable” beauty products on offer, because you need to buy your worth in nappies. What if I told you that you already have a good collection of versatile beauty products? They are sitting right on your baby’s changing station. Think about it, if it’s good enough to put on your baby, it should surely be good enough for your own skin. Mom Moments with Megan Kelly shares the secrets of Sudocrem today…
Sudocrem is one of the best-kept beauty secrets of our times for almost 80 years. Yes, you read that correctly. Although Sudocrem is NOT a moisturizing formula, it does do a fantastic job of removing grease. It also works well to dry up any excess moisture, which is what makes it so good for rashes, chaffing or chub-rub.
Sudocrem also doubles up as an excellent after-sun ointment. It helps soothe the burn while reducing any redness. Speaking of which, it is a great remedy to help dry out any spots, whether it’s a rash, break-out, cold sores or a random zit. Sudocrem draws out any blemishes and helps treat your skin, so put a dab of the cream on your face before bedtime.
One of my best beauty discoveries… Use Sudocrem as a primer before applying any makeup. The Sudocrem helps prevent foundation from sinking into the pores, giving you a better, more radiant finish. The best part is that if you suffer from oily skin, you won’t end up looking like a grease ball by the end of the day like with other primers! A little goes a long way with this guy! Believe me, you won’t regret adding it to your beauty regime.
MUST TRY: The Sudocrem mask (to be used once a week)
It sounds a lot fancier than it is! The Sudocrem mask is just smearing a thick layer of the barrier cream all over your face overnight. Or, if you prefer, focusing on problematic areas. Just remember that your pillows (and everything else) will be covered in white traces from the cream. The Sudocrem will absorb into your skin overnight, clearing away blackheads, shrinking pores and reducing any redness and sensitivity that you may be experiencing.
Sounds too good to be true? You’ve got nothing to lose! Why not try it tonight and let us know what you think of including Sudocrem into your beauty regime.
