Why do we love Weleda Skin Food?

It also contains extract of wild pansy, helping to keep even the driest skin soft and supple, and gently soothing chamomile.
Add to that rosemary leaf extract, chosen for its circulation stimulating, revitalising action and naturally antibacterial, calming calendula, and you have got the perfect little helper for your skin.
Not only is Skin Food a wonder moisturiser, it also has a host of other uses too.
Rub gently into cuticles to soften and nourish, layer on and leave for a deeply effective mask or prep skin before putting on your make up, using Skin Food as a simple, effective primer.
It can even double as a highlighter, dabbed onto cheekbones and brow bones for a glossy glow.

Always read the label before 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 gloves and leave overnight.

Weleda Skin Food is a luxurious, nourishing cream which is packed full of plant extracts and essential oils.
It is a celebrity and beauty expert favourite, with everyone from Victoria Beckham to Rosie Huntington-Whitely swearing by it.
Weleda launched their Skin Food product back in 1926 and so it has over 90 years of history and heritage.
Weleda Skin Food is made with plant extracts and essential oils.
It contains organic sunflower seed oil as well as extracts of wild pansy, chamomile, calendula and rosemary extract.
These ingredients work together to moisturise, soothe and calm the skin.
The moisturiser gets its delicate fragrance from the refreshing essential oils that it contains. These include sweet orange and lavender oils.
Weleda Skin Food is gentle enough to be used on the delicate skin of your face.
This deep moisturiser can be used as a day or night cream and is ideal for rough or dry skin anywhere on the body, such as the hands, knees and elbows.
It can also be used as a protective cream during harsh weather and is the perfect solution if you like to spend a lot of time outdoors, especially during the winter months, when the colder weather can cause additional drying of the skin.
Weleda Skin Food is cruelty free. None of the ingredients in the formula, or the finished formula are tested on animals.
Weleda Skin Food contains beeswax making it unsuitable for anyone living a vegan lifestyle, however it is suitable for Vegetarians.
When applying to the face, you should gently pat the product on to the skin.
Use as part of your usual skincare routine, following cleansing and toning. Weleda Skin Food can be used as both a day and night cream.
On other areas of your body, gently smooth the cream into your skin until it is fully absorbed.
You can also use Weleda Skin Food as a deeply moisturising treatment for your hands. This is especially useful if you use your hands a lot for work, and when you have been washing them and using hand sanitiser often, as this dries them out.
Simply apply the cream liberally to your hands and pop on some bamboo or cotton gloves. You can leave these on overnight while you sleep.
A little of this goes a long way as this cream is very rich and so you only need to use sparingly.
This means that just one tube of Weleda Skin Food can last a long time, making it a very cost-effective skincare product.
Apply to areas of tight, dry or rough skin. To deeply nourish dry hands, apply and then cover with gloves and leave overnight
Use sparingly as a little goes a long way. Gently pat on your face to avoid dragging the skin
