Cleansers, toners and moisturisers are amongst the basic range of skincare products, but there’s a whole world of new innovations you may not recognise.

Weleda Skin Food is quite simply a light, non-greasy protective balm used for the skin. Great for protecting fresh skin, it provides a seal from external aggressors such as the environment and weather. Nourishing and hydrating, you only ever need to use a small amount for effective results. When suffering with extremely dry skin, it’s often described as ‘a cold glass of water for your face’, providing that thirst-quenching relief needed.
Often,Weleda Skin Food is used as a post-shave balm to protect the new layer of skin revealed by the razor blade. It protects it from damage whilst providing essential nutrients, allowing the skin to quickly develop the ability to protect itself. You can also use it on dry skin or as an extra barrier when spending time outdoors in harsh weather.
To use skin food, simply apply a generous amount of product several times a day whenever your skin needs it. A good guide to go by is to apply more whenever you feel your skin tightening. This is similar to how often you would top up your lip balm. You can also use it on other dry areas suffering such as the hands, feet, elbows and knees.
