If you haven’t tried it yet, this will be a game changer for you. Loved by the stars and a hero product in almost every makeup artist kit, meet Skin Food from Weleda, the ultra-rich body cream that intensely hydrates, protects and restores the skin with nourishing plant extracts and oils. It was developed in 1926 by Dr Rudolf Steiner and is still as popular as ever.
Victoria Beckham swears by it and uses it every day:
‘It’s really, really thick, and I slather it on.’
One of the reasons (besides of how cheap it is) is that you can almost use it for anything! As a face cream, eye cream (help reduce puffiness by rehydrating the area under your eyes), face mask, hair serum for dry and damaged ends, hand and cuticle cream, lip balm, body cream and on any rough or dry spots like elbows, knees and heels.
On the set of NUDE’s last editorial shoot, the talented makeup artist Julie Prødel used it on the model’s eyelids and as a highlighter, and it gave the most beautiful glow on the skin. I have been copying that every day since and sometimes over dry eyeshadow if I want a more dramatic wet-look.
With gentle, plant-based, botanical ingredients including soothing Chamomile, Calendula and Rosemary as well as nourishing Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax and Sunflower Oil, this multi-purpose skin cream is anti-inflammatory, circulation boosting and intensely moisturising, helping to support the skin’s natural balance and provide calming relief from irritation and soreness.
Its active ingredients include Vitamin E and fatty acids obtained from sunflower seed. It also contains soothing rosemary leaf extracts that have antiseptic qualities and organic calendula flower extract, which protects and gently nourishes your skin. It is almost no need to mention it is of course dermatologically tested.
