Sudocrem might not be the most glamorous addition to your bathroom shelve, but there’s miracles locked inside the little (now big) grey tub!
You are not truly a parent if you have NOT experienced some form of nappy rash. The first time Minki said “boudjies eina” I felt horrible. I was immediately thinking it’s my fault. I didn’t change her diaper often enough, I didn’t wipe thoroughly enough. I’m not good enough. You are familiar with mom guilt right? Well, nappy rash are unfortunately a parental rite of passage, despite your best care. That’s not just me telling you that to ease the guilt, but (smart) people who did a lot of research.
But there are ways to prevent or cure it quickly. The moment Minki’s bum looks a little red and irritated I slap on my most trusted bum cream.
I know, there’s literally hundreds of bum creams out there (and believe me, I’ve tried them all). Some of them work, some of them not so much and some of them does wonders. FYI: Sudocrem has been around for over 80 years so they must be doing something right?
Why we love it:
Not to bore you or anything but zinc oxide is one of the main ingredients that does not only prevent nappy rash but can also cure it. Sudocrem has a combo of ingredients, including hypoallergenic lanolin, an emollient that soothes and softens skin, zinc oxide, which reduces the loss of fluid and a water-repellent excipient base to create a protective seal.
Bigger and better
This little grey tub now comes in a bigger tub. Perfect for all your needs!
It’s (not) pretty
Oops! I know I loooove pretty stuff and let’s be honest Sudocrem is not the most glamorous addition to your bathroom shelve but it’s the inside that counts…right?
Despite taking great care of your babies bum, there’s 5 more things you can use this “magic cream” for:
1. Heals cuts and bruises
It helps to heal wounds by forming a protective layer over the vulnerable area, reducing the risk of infection, and also contains a mild local anaesthetic to soothe discomfort. Not to mention putting on a “salfie” always soothes Minki…
2. Exit eczema
Sudocrem can also be used to calm and soothe eczema, and certain other skin conditions.
3. Pluck that eyebrows!
Perfect for plucking your eyebrows or any other necessary, but painful beauty procedures. Reducing redness and soothing sore skin. Book that Hollywood bikini wax right now!
Again, it soothes sore skin, so if you are heading for the beach and plan to sunbath, remember Sudocrem!
Insect bites suck! Even for grown-ups. Relief the itching by dabbing on some Sudocrem.
Now you have one less thing to worry about Mama! Pack away the mom-guilt, just pack a tub of Sudocrem and you (and your family) are covered.
