6. It can be used as a primer for your foundation
Aside from soothing skin rashes and bites, it turns out that the product can also be used as a primer to hold foundation all day.
A Makeupalley reviewer explains, "We all know it works wonders on baby butts and acne. Cuts and scrapes. But I use my little pot as a foundation primer! Only on my nose and forehead though, they're the only places I get a little shiny. And my foundation stays flawless and more importantly on my face all day!! I don't even need to powder again. Once I've baked with loose powder. I'm good to go"
5. It can be used to help heal stubborn acne and pimples
The healing properties of zinc can work wonders when it comes to reducing redness and drying out persistent pimples.
As per Makeupalley, a reviewer says, "Many people said it's great for clearing acne and scars acne leaves behind and for the best results you should sleep with Sudocrem on your face overnight. So I decided to try!"
"My skin hasn't got bad acne but it does break out often and is sensitive and I've many small acne scars. The first time I tried this, I woke up the next morning and noticed my cheeks weren't as red as usual. I continued to use sudocrem as an overnight mask two times a week and now my skin has almost completely cleared up. Amazing!"
4. It can be used to heal painful burns and sunburn
For those who can't break the habit of spending a day or two soaking up the sun's rays or those with a penchant for accidental hair straightener burns, then it's best to opt for Sudocrem.
One reviewer explains that they "had a really bad curling iron burn" on their arm, but "this cream literally sped up the healing process and it looked better within two uses."
3. Sudocream can speed up the removal of mosquito bites
Come summer time, mozzies (and their violent tendencies) are in full swing. So, don't suffer in silence. A small application of Sudocrem can help speed up healing when it comes to those nasty, itchy bumps.
One reviewer even claimed that the cream healed hers in a single day, saying, "Reduced the swelling and redness of mosquitos bite the next day. Highly recommended."
2. It can be used to soothe shaving bumps
If you've ever taken a shaving razor to your legs, armpits or bikini line then you're surely familiar with the pain of those nasty little bumps and ingrown hairs. And if those unwanted friends are a regular occurance for your skin, then you'll know how difficult it is to get rid of them. Turns out, Sudocrem can help in that department.
Another reviewer says, "Its great to apply on your bikini area after shaving to prevent bumps and redness, gets rid of bum pimples, makes scabs go away faster and smells really nice. However, it needs to be used sparingly, especially if used on the face, as it does dry the skin out."
1. And finally, Sudocrem can rehydrate rough skin
Whether it's the dry, winter chill or a result of dehydration via genetics, dry skin can be a cross to bear for many. And while there are endless hydrating offerings on the market, it's worth turning your attention to oh-so-affordable Sudocrem.
One reviewer says, "This is absolutely amazing on my feet—especially my heels. I slather it on at night and slip on socks right away (otherwise, it will mark floors, carpets, bedding) and it softens my feet better than even the pricey foot creams I have."
"I also find it really good to apply on hang-nails (which I get often during winter, with the cold, drying weather and constant hand-washing)."
Clearly, there's a plethora of skin concerns that Sudocrem can fix. So, what are you waiting for? Scroll on to grab yourself a fresh tub of the cream bound to return your skin to its natural glory.
