But it turns out the miracle £2.99 cream can also be a surprising asset to your beauty regime.
According to Glamour, the thick, white cream can come in very handy when it comes to dyeing your hair.
If you’re doing a DIY job at home, apply a layer of Sudocrem across your forehead to act as a shield.
This will stop the dye trickling onto your skin and leaving an unpleasant dark stain that takes hours of scrubbing to get rid of.
Sudocrem is also great for soothing bumpy rashes caused by plucking your eyebrows.
On top of that, it can provide relief from skin conditions like psoriasis, thanks to its hypoallergenic lanolin and zinc oxide.
The cream can also work wonders as a primer for underneath your make-up.
The bargain white stuff creates a semi-veil on your skin, which acts as a perfect base for your foundation and prevents it from caking.
And as if that wasn’t enough, it acts as an anti-wrinkle cream due to it containing zinc, which naturally tightens up your skin’s elastin fibre.
