Smooth as a baby’s bottom!

A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon a skincare forum and a few users were talking about using diaper rash cream on their faces.  They were raving about the amazing effect it had on the skin.  Some of them also claimed that this cream heals acne and prevents breakouts.

I was a little sceptical, to tell you the truth, so I decided to do a little research.  If it’s safe to use on babies' skin, it is probably safe to use on your face, right?  As it turns out, the active ingredient in diaper rash cream is Zinc oxide!  (A few weeks ago I wrote about the benefits of Zinc oxide, in an earlier post.) 

So, I decided to give it a try.  I went to the nearest pharmacy and I chose a Zinc and Castor oil ointment. 


Castor oil provides a soothing and moisturising effect on the skin.  Its antioxidant properties help to cleanse the skin and remove toxins.  When used regularly, Castor oil helps flush out oil glands and may help alleviate adult acne.
I use this cream in the evening for a couple of hours before bedtime.  I apply a thick layer of cream on my cheeks and chin, where I tend to break out.  From my experience, diaper rash cream really helps acne to heal faster, and it also leaves the skin as smooth as a baby’s bottom!  But when it comes to preventing breakouts, I am not so sure. 
This ointment can be used by people of every skin type. 


If you do not have acne-prone skin, I suggest using it once a week as a skin-smoothing/softening facial mask. 

For those with acne-prone skin, I recommend using it on active acne to help it heal faster.  Leave it on as long as you can. 

If the cream comes in a pot, like the one shown in the pictures, do not put your fingers in it.   Always use a cotton swab, to avoid contamination!

I do not suggest using it as an overnight treatment, as the cream will rub off on your pillowcases.

Give it a try and let me know how it works for you!
