Well the jokes on me because the work, coffee to stay awake, can't sleep because of the coffee, need more coffee vicious circle probably doesn't help my special snowflake skin. So what do you do when you're strapped for cash with sensitive broken out skin? Grab the sudocrem (I'm actually even cheaper and use the Tesco own brand version which is even cheaper at £1.40 for 150ml.)Yeap, the stuff for nappy rash.
Its designed to be used on unhappy sensitive and broken skin. It deals with infection and irritation, cools and moisturises. And unlike most treatments for broken skin it doesn't dry it out at all. A little goes a long way, and it lasts what feels like forever. Be warned though, its a bitch to get out of fabrics.
So how do you use it? Get your hair out of your face, smear some on your face making sure to keep clear of your eye area. Give your hands a good wash (if it gets on the sofa you'll have a hell of a time getting it out.) Let it sit for an hour or more. Because its so thick and sticky you don't need to worry about dripping white goo everywhere or leaving a trail of dry clay dust in your wake. When you are ready for bed or to face the world with your lovely visage and don't feel like starting a sideline in being a really rubbish mime just fill a basin with warm water and grab a face cloth and remove the cream. Pat dry and continue with your usual face regime (if you have one.)
I do this once a week when its needed. Bloke has run out of mime jokes. My skin feels amazing. I share the oddest stuff with you people.
