Classic Beauty Product of the Year
Weleda have just announced that their wonderful Skin Food has won the prestigious Silver Award for the Classic Beauty Product of the Year at the Clothes Show London. I use the Skin Food everyday and can certainly agree that it is a real winner!
Weleda Skin Food is a rich cream to deeply nourish, protect and repair skin. It is one of Weleda’s original skincare products and is extremely popular now due to it being ‘discovered’ by a number of celebrities – and, of course, the fantastic combination of plant extracts that really do feed your skin the goodness it needs.
Mums Work Hard – You Deserve Treats Too!
Weleda Skin Food is a deep-penetrating replenishing skin repair cream for dry patches of skin and for added protection. It contains extracts of soothing chamomile, calendula, wild pansy and a blend of enriching oils and waxes to provide a fine protective barrier against the ravages of the weather.
Even before the addition of the plant extracts and essential oils the base itself is food for dry skin. Hypoallergenic lanolin, sweet almond oil and sunflower seed oil are three of the main ingredients of the base. Lanolin, chemically, is almost identical to sebum, the natural oil produced by the skin. It is therefore an ideal substance to ‘feed’ to dry skin. Both almond and sunflower seed oil soften and soothe the skin and also assist in the penetration of other soothing, rejuvenating ingredients.
How and When to Use Weleda Skin Food
Skin Food can be used as a nourishing day and night cream. It is good for rough, dry skin anywhere on the body; face, hands, elbows, knees etc. It can be used as a protective cream in harsh weather and is excellent for anyone regularly out of doors.
Directions for Use
A little goes a long way, so apply sparingly. This very rich cream is best applied to the face by gently patting on so as to avoid dragging the skin. Elsewhere on the body gently smooth into the skin until the cream is absorbed. To deeply nourish hard working, dry hands: apply liberally, cover with cotton gloves and leave overnight.
