Diaper rash cream is proven to be very effective in treating cystic acne. The cream contains Zinc Oxide in a fair quantity which is considered to be an Acne Killer (That’s what people say, be honest I have no idea what zinc oxide is all about). The cream also contains calendula which has anti-inflammatory features.
In my case, I had aggressive cystic acne for a long time. I tried almost everything that I was recommended as a treatment with no avail. One day my sister called me told me that she has a crazy solution for my acne. It was nothing other than Diaper Rash Cream. After applying for a couple of days, my acne was already on a run.
Disclaimer: Like any other skin treatment, you should do a test patch first to ensure that your skin doesn’t have any allergic reactions towards the cream. One treatment may not sit well with every skin. And please don’t take this writing as medical advice. Discontinue the treatment if your skin doesn’t react positively to the treatment.
What cream I used: Weleda Diaper Rash Cream
How to use: Apply to all your acne spots as a spot treatment. Let it dry and go to bed. Wash off in the morning.
You can also apply this as a face mask before you go to bed and wash off in the morning.
