I overheard someone saying that they use diaper rash cream as an overnight acne treatment and I thought they were joking. That was until I hit the Internet to do a little recon...
Turns out a lot of people are onto this little beauty secret.
I wanted to give this a try before passing it onto you. I opted for Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm Zinc & Lanolin Free Calendula Herbal Diaper Cream (say that twice), which I found on Amazon (my favorite place to shop). I was drawn to Earth Mama because it's certified organic, toxin-free verified by the EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetics Database and of course vegan!
Because it's a blend of naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal organic herbs, Shea
butter and pure essential oils it goes on the skin clear, so no walking around with white blotches like you get from traditional acne creams. As it liquefies with your body heat, it glides on effortlessly and I just put it all over my face in a thin layer. Bonus, this product also works on bug bites,
scrapes, chicken pox, minor rashes, and burns.
So my results...
It works! I can't believe it, I can't explain it, but I wake up in the morning with clear skin! So, I'm sold. Ironically, the Internet claims to credit the zinc oxide commonly found in most
diaper rash creams to the clear skin and I accidentally picked up cream that doesn't
contain zinc. Yet, still got the results I was after. Maybe zinc is the answer, but there's something else in this natural product that works just as well. I don't know what to tell you other than, grab a small bottle and try for yourself, you never know what's going to work.
