How to Soothe, Heal and Protect Irritated Skin

Protection and alleviation are the two main things we women want to obtain from a skincare face product. Whether talking about healing dry patches on the face, treating acne, calming irritated skin or treating Rosacea, all of these skin conditions are complicated and require a special approach and treatment. Luckily, some mighty products can provide you with all of that, like the powerful Sudocrem and the all-time-favourite Frankincense essential oil.

Why Sudocrem?

Moms out there are pretty familiar with the Sudocrem’s ‘powers’, especially when treating eczema and nappy rash. And this is all thanks to its hypoallergenic lanolin and zinc oxide content. These two ingredients have the power to treat and heal irritated skin in no time, which is why all moms have Sudocrem nappy cream in their cabinets. Given its soothing properties, it’s also said that this all-time-favourite cream can also be used on the face for several reasons.

Treat Pimples and Acne Easily

The remarkable healing properties of Sudocrem for face go way beyond calming irritated skin. Thanks to its zinc oxide, Sudocrem for face can also be used for treating pimple/acne redness while also being successful in drying them out. For the best results, you should use it on your face overnight. You can use it as a spot treatment or on the entire face as a sleeping mask in case you have too many pimples. If you’re afraid of breaking out, you can use it only several times per week and see how your skin will react to it.

Relieve Your Skin from Burns and Sunburns

Accidental burns and sunburns can happen, even though you’re paying extra attention to protecting your skin. And in case you don’t have a cream specially designed for treating burns, you can always apply a layer of the Sudocrem healing cream. Because of its unique ingredients, this cream can help speed up the healing process. The best of all is that this cream can be used as often as needed to relieve symptoms. If the burns haven’t improved after a few days, you should immediately contact your healthcare provider.

Soothe Shaving Bumps

Who would have thought that this cream could be beneficial to women, right?! Aside from treating acne and pimples, this almighty cream can also treat and soothe shaving bumps which are pretty common in women. Whether you have used a razor on your armpits, legs or bikini line, this cream can soothe and treat those nasty little red bumps, which sometimes can be pretty painful. And the best of all is that it can also treat ingrown hairs, which are also quite common in women, especially in the bikini zone.

Skin Rehydration

Skin roughness and dehydration can happen at any time of the year and in any part of your body. Although, winter is the most common culprit for skin roughness, still, there are some other things like genetics that could play a role in skin dehydration. Whatever the reason, this affordable cream can also give the skin the needed moisture and hydration, leaving it smooth and patch free. Being so beneficial, except on the face, this cream can be used on the entire body and even on your feet (heels), which can be extremely dry in winter.

Can You Use Sudocrem on Face Everyday?

Yes, you can, especially if you’re treating some kind of skin condition. If not in need of treating something, you can always use your regular face cream.

Why Frankincense Essential Oil?

Even though mainly used in aromatherapy, essential oils can also be used topically for numerous reasons. When it comes to skin-soothing and choosing the right essential oil frankincense seems to have all the powers in helping you. Mainly used in Traditional Chinese medicine, Frankincense essential oil is the key ingredient in many popular and world-known skincare products because of its astringent properties. So when choosing skin-strengthening essential oil frankincense seems to work wonders. And aside from this, it’s said that this amazing essential oil can also help in improving the skin tone and defensive mechanism against bacteria and blemishes.

Skin Soothing

Frankincense essential oil also has anti-inflammatory properties, making it great for pampering and soothing irritated skin. Thanks to this, this essential oil can restore the epidermis and calm irritated skin in a short period of time. So whether your skin is irritated from the sun, from breaking out or even from Rosacea, this essential oil can soothe and nourish it.

Skin Rejuvenating

Thanks to its cell-renewing properties, this essential oil can also help you treat your face’s fine lines and wrinkles. Since essential oils are potent in general and can cause burns, you must dilute them when using them topically. For this reason, you can use a carrier oil like almond, jojoba, coconut, etc. However, if you deal with breakouts and skin irritations, these oils might worsen your current condition. You can add two drops to 2 tablespoons of your face cream and massage it on your face at night. That way, you can naturally prevent the signs of ageing, which is of vital importance for women.

Stress Relieving

When inhaled directly or used in an aromatherapy diffuser, this essential oil can lower stress levels, calm anxiety and promote sleep. So aside from using it on the skin at night for reducing wrinkles, you can use it as an aromatherapy bed ritual to help you relieve your mind from stress and improve your night’s sleep.
