When it comes to dealing with dry skin, a must-have, no excuses product has to be Weleda’s iconic Skin Food. A super thick, rich multi-purpose product which you can use from head to toe, it’s one of those products I’m never without. Indeed, I’ve even got a subscription for the stuff on Amazon, so one pops through the letter like clockwork every two months.
Be warned – if you’ve got oily skin, this won’t be the facial moisturiser for you. But for me, I love it as a facial moisturiser. If I’m feeling particularly parched, I’ll pack on a thick layer of the stuff to work as an overnight moisture mask, or if I just feel like a little TLC, I can work a little in as a daily facial moisturiser. It’s thick and incredibly moisturising, and it does need a little time to get absorbed, but the result is so worth it. The cream is packed with natural ingredients including gentle viola tricolour, calendula and chamomile which all soothe skin. It’s also the perfect product if you’re looking to treat dry cuticles, elbows, knees and heels – it just sinks in, leaving super soft skin behind!
A tube of skin food is £7.95 and it’s available here.
