Weleda Diaper Cream as Blemish Cure

Posted by:  Jordan

From Weleda’s website:

What do you recommend for treating blemishes?

Our Calendula Diaper Care works as an excellent spot-treatment due to its active ingredient of Zinc Oxide, which promotes healing. Extracts of organic and Biodynamic® grown calendula and organic chamomile reduce redness and inflammation.

I realize that applying diaper rash cream to your face seems a little unorthodox, but it actually seems to work REALLY well!  I tried this trick after reading the above recommendation on Weleda’s FAQ page on their website.  I was surprised how quickly it cleared up a few blemishes I had over the weekend…2 days later I was blemish free without even the slightest bit of dry, flaky skin! Since this cream is so soothing and moisturizing, and obviously made for sensitive skin, I wasn’t too worried about it being drying, but I wasn’t sure how quickly it would work as an effective blemish treatment.  Turns out, it went to work almost overnight!  Is this a one-time fluke?  I hope not, and I’ll be sure to update this post if my opinion changes in the future.

And as it so happens, Emily and I will both be stocking up on the Weleda Diaper Cream soon, as we’re soon going to be venturing into the world of mommyhood!  Emily is due next month, and, official announcement: I’m due in October!  So with all the hormonal changes going on in our bodies, we’re sure to be constantly applying this multi-purpose cream to both our babies and ourselves soon!

  6. That sounds like a great idea. I have just started using a sunscreen with 10% zinc oxide for the same reason but there are more sunscreens out there with a higher percentage. Its worth a try. Hopefully it works 🙂
