Let’s be candid for a second. I’m always up to trying DIYs, but it doesn’t mean that I’m not skeptic when it comes to it. Depending on what ingredients are being used, I’ll either be a 100% up for it, or I’ll tell you you’re crazy. So when I found out that diaper rash cream can be used for something everybody suffers from (not rashes), I was surprised. But I was also VERY intrigued.

This DIY/Organic Beauty tip comes from none other than the Queen of DIY herself, Miss Farah Dhukai. The beauty guru has captivated her 6.5 MILLION followers with her DIY skin and hair care videos, and her general gorgeousness. Heck, she’s my Woman Crush Wednesday.

The real life Jasmine shared this particular hack using diaper rash cream back in 2016. And revisited the hack early this year. I thought it was too good to be true – but I was so, SO wrong. What is this hack you ask? Well, let me tell you.

DIAPER RASH CREAM HACK

Are you a little too familiar with those pesky breakouts – the ones that show up uninvited? Yeah, me too. Well, you know what might work? Diaper Rash Cream.

You heard me. I tried it, and I fell in love with it.

HOW TO

Apply the diaper rash cream as a spot treatment, UNDER your makeup OR as a leave on mask before bed. And wake up with soothed acne that goes away within a few days.

WHY IT WORKS

Diaper rash cream is high in ZINC OXIDE which will

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Reduce oil production
  • Soothe pimples
  • Reduce redness
  • Lighten acne scars
  • Shrink gigantic planet sized pimples

 

But like anything else, PLEASE do a patch test and wait 24 hours before you go ham.

Everybody’s skin is different, and results will vary.

Pick up a diaper rash cream here. Or just waltz into your local supermarket/pharmacy.
