We’re only three months into the year and I’ve already found my favourite beauty product of 2019, and it’s Skin Food by Weleda. This product needs absolutely no introduction being the ultimate natural moisturiser for dry, rough skin everywhere and anywhere. Although Skin Food has been relieving dry skin since 1926, I’ve only just discovered this (I know I’m hanging my head in shame). To be honest I wouldn’t have even stumbled across this miracle product if it wasn’t for Abigail’s Party, so thank you!
For those who haven’t heard of this little green tube, Skin Food is a universal saviour of dry, rough skin on the whole body. With extracts of gentle viola tricolour, calendula and chamomile in a rich thick base of oils and beeswax, Skin Food transforms your skin back to its best. Seriously, I fell in love with this product from the first application and ever since I’ve been addicted to its smell and its ability to make my skin feel super soft and nourished.
Today, I’m talking about the 10 ways to use Weleda Skin Food and the results I’ve seen…
1, The top of my cheeks. I apply this to the tops of my cheeks before applying my make-up for a natural glow to my complexion. It’s the ideal highlighter!
2, Under my eyes. It’s so important that you hydrate your under eye area, as it doesn’t produce its own hydration and over time loses elasticity, causing fine lines and wrinkles. I apply a thin layer of Skin Food to my under eye area every morning and night to give my skin a boost. I know it’s not a specific eye cream, but I’m really liking how bright and smooth my eye area is looking since using this.
3, Lips. In addition to your eyes, your lips are the only other place on your body that doesn’t produce its own hydration, so it’s important to keep them hydrated. This is why I apply a thick layer of Skin Food to my lips every single night.
4, On the soles of my feet. I know we’re getting real here, but no one likes the rough skin on their feet, but it’s something we all get. I’ve been applying Skin Food to the rough parts of my soles and I’ve noticed such a difference. Miracle cream? I think so!
5, Nails. Since I get gel nails I’m really careful about the products I put on my hands because some products can get under the gel and cause it to lift. Although Skin Food is thick I’ve found it works wonders and keeps my dry cuticles at bay.
6, Burns. A strange one I know, but I burnt my arm with my curlers a few weeks ago and it it left a pretty nasty burn. I would normally just try to leave these kind of things alone, but since I apply Skin Food everywhere I thought I might as well apply some to the burn and guess what? No, it didn’t heal it, but it did nourish the tight, dry skin about the burn.
7, As a face mask. Does anyone else indulge in a pamper session on a Sunday? There’s nothing I love more than cleansing my skin and applying a thick of my selected face mask and although it takes a while for Skin Food to absorb it’s makes your skin feel so hydrated. Plus, it smells incredible.
8, Make-up primer. These days I don’t tend to use a primer, but I use this when I want a dewy glow to my complexion and it helps my foundation to last longer throughout the day.
9, False tan blender. I’m terrible at applying false tan, I can never, and I mean never, blend my elbows and knees seamlessly with the rest of my body. But, I’ve found that applying a little Skin Food beforehand helps to apply a flawless looking tan.
10, Hair cream. So, I don’t apply this directly to my hair, but once I’ve applied the cream to my body, or face, if I have any left other I’ll apply it to the ends of my hair. I’ve found it helps to combat the frizz and nourishes my dry ends.
Have you tried Skin Food before? Are there any other ways you use Skin Food – I’d love to know!
