Tips & Tricks #5
Firstly I have to apologise for the (very) old pot of Sudocrem I own, I think it's about time I invested in a new one but for now we will put that to one side and move on. Anyway another tip/trick for you today which is another one for you blemish prone skin people alike to me. I apologise if you don't have spot prone skin but I feel everyone gets spots at some point so hopefully these tips and tricks help you in some way at some point!
Anyway if you've never heard of Sudocrem then (well I'm sure you have) but if not then you've been hiding for some time. Yes it's mainly advertised for babies and nappy rashes but it has many other benefits as well which just aren't that hyped up. In very small writing on the front of the tub it does state that it helps acne and that's what I'm going to be talking about.
Now you know those very large, very red and very painful spots you get... well that's where this product comes in. I find this product helps those particular spots very, very well. I'm not saying it doesn't help other spots as well, I just find that it definitely helps those ones the most on me anyway. But everyone is different so you'll have to give this product a go on all types of spots and see what works best for you.
The best way to apply this product is at night, just before you go to sleep. The main key to this product is to not rub it into the spot fully. It works best if you apply it directly to the spot(s) and not too thin or too thick. Then just leave it, do not rub it in to the spot, just simply blob some onto the affected area and leave it. Yes you may look funny, hence why you apply it last thing at night, due to potentially having many white blobs all over your face.
Then when you wake up in the morning the Sudocrem will have absorbed into the spot. Firstly this leaves the spot(s) less red and less visible. Mainly this means less painful which is so much better, I mean when a spot is painful it can be really painful. But the fact that it's much less visible and red means that it's much easier to cover up for whatever you may be doing that day. The Sudocrem also leaves the spot hydrated which is such a great plus. Spots can get very dry with all of the spot treatments you have to apply so it's nice to be able to apply something to them which can actually help hydrate them slightly.
Overall this is a great go to product when it comes to those particular type of spots and the tub honestly lasts ages. You can purchase different sized pots too and it's really affordable so if you want to give this product a go then it's definitely worth it and won't break the bank. This is just one of those products which is great to have in your skin care stash as it is an all rounder product. It's also such an easy product to use, just quickly applying before you go to sleep, so definitely doesn't waste any time! I hope you're enjoying the long bank holiday weekend :-)
