Love it: the all-new Weleda Skin Food additions

One of the world’s greatest beauty ‘steals’ and applauded by everyone from Julia Roberts to Adele and Victoria Beckham, the marvellous multitasker known as Weleda Skin Food is always at the top of any beauty freak’s ‘essentials’ list. Amazingly, the product was first formulated in 1926 and remains largely unchanged today. That is serious longevity right there, and with good reason. 
Naturally delicious for your skin, Skin Food is an intensely hydrating super multitasker that can be used everywhere from the tips of your hair to the tips of your toes. It is 100 per cent certified natural, and a yummy blend of organic chamomile, calendula, rosemary and wild pansy, in a thick base of sunflower seed oil, sweet almond oil and organic beeswax - no wonder skin loves it!
Now, the Skin Food menu has grown to include two new products that are also predicted to become global favourites: Skin Food Body Butter and Skin Food Lip Balm. With a melt-at-the-touch texture, Skin Food Body Butter is a creamy, whipped formula that leaves your skin velvety soft and plump. The inclusion of Organic Cocoa Seed Butter and Organic Shea Butter provide instant relief from dryness and protect skin with an optimal moisture barrier, and I think it will really come into its own as the temperature drops. Other key ingredients in there include Organic Sunflower Seed Oil (rich in antioxidants from Vitamin E), Organic Rosemary Leaf Extract to enhance skin’s regenerative processes and soothing Organic Calendula (Marigold) and Organic Chamomile Extracts. Non-greasy and housed in a super convenient pot, Skin Food Body Butter is also dermatologically approved for atopic skin and is perfect for all skin types, as well as being suitable for vegans. I’ve been applying it straight after a shower to slightly damp skin and can almost see the repair it is exacting on my post-summer skin. On humid days I recommend waiting a few minutes before dressing just to make sure it’s all sunk in, then you’re good to go.
Next up is the multi-purpose Weleda Skin Food Lip Balm, which protects dry chapped lips and gives a gorgeous sheen. Lanolin and Beeswax layer lips with a protective barrier to protect from drying out, whilst the inclusion of Organic Sunflower Seed Oil packed with Vitamin E, A C & D, Organic Rosemary Leaf Extract, Organic Calendula and Organic Chamomile Extracts help relieve and nourish. Once again perfect for post-summer repair, Skin Food Lip Balm is gluten-free and small enough to carry anywhere. 
Weleda Skin Food Body Butter (RRP$29.90) and Skin Food Lip Balm (RRP$12.90) are both available now.
