Honestly, the very same cream that is used on the bottoms of babies’ around the country! Yes, and I will admit that I too use Sudocrem on a daily basis, and I LOVE it! I’m in good company too! Kimberly Walsh, from Girls Aloud, also admitted to being a fellow Sudocrem fan, she said: “Cheryl and I put Sudocrem on our spots before bed, so we’ve shared that beauty tip with the rest of the group.” Cheryl Cole later confirmed this by saying, ‘It really works!‘ Even in the US, the 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes said, ‘Using it is the best beauty tip ever. It’s amazing!’ There was even a whole scene on The Only Way Is Essex, where the advantages of Sudocrem were discussed at length, so to help ‘Diags’ ,a man from the show, who suffers from severe acne. Lauren Pope from the same show said, ‘It makes a great overnight mask!’
But why does a cream that soothes babies’ bottoms also keep our face spot free? The Daily Express answered this question quite well, they wrote, ‘The zinc oxide it contains prevents moisture loss and its lanolin has excellent moisturising qualities’.
Sudocrem have obviously cottoned on to the fact that the celebs are using their cream and have brought out ‘Sudocrem Skin Care Cream’ as well as the original, ‘Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream’. However, I maintain using the ‘Antiseptic’ variety, simply because it is more widely available, although the packaging of the ‘Skin Care Cream’ is obviously less unusual in a single ladies handbag, of course.
On the Sudocrem Skin Care Cream website it states:
Sudocrem Skin Care Cream is a clinically proven formulation retaining the familiar soothing qualities present in the original Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream. It is gentle and protects delicate skin, forming a barrier against irritants and blocking nasty pollutants.
