Today I’m dishing on a celebrity makeup artist secret weapon: Weleda Skin Food.
Weleda Skin Food is a unique, ultra-rich whole-body cream that deeply hydrates, restores and protects skin with nourishing plant oils and extracts.
Makeup artists and celebrities have been using this amazing little multi-tasker for years for everything from hand close-ups to achieving the perfect glowy dewy skin look in a photoshoot.
Lately its popularity has become so well known that celebrities like Adele, Victoria Beckham, Julia Roberts and Rihanna are asking their makeup artists to stock their kits with this hydrating all natural and vegetarian friendly blend.
If you walk back stage during fashion week I can pretty much guarantee you will find a tube of Weleda Skin Food in just about EVERY makeup artist’s kit.
With the ability to nourish any spot on your body that may be hungry for some moisture, it can be used as a primer for your face under your moisturizer, as a night cream, on feet, elbows, hands, cuticles basically anywhere you want to achieve more supple nourished skin.
and…..it doesn’t cause breakouts.
Weleda Skin Food contains extracts of soothing Chamomile (healing and anti-inflammatory properties), Rosemary (stimulates the circulation and the metabolism. It is also used to treat poorly healing wounds and eczema), Calendula (possesses powerful healing and anti-inflammatory properties), Wild Pansy (known for its soothing and healing properties, has long been used to treat various skin conditions, such as eczema and acne) and Sunflower Oil (provides a rich source of unsaturated linoleic and oleic fatty acids and Vitamin E. Sunflower Seed Oil is soothing, calming and caring to the skin) and ALL of the ingredients are grown bio-dynamically and their products are about as organic and high-quality as it gets but at a price that is super pocket friendly!
The cream is super duper thick and rich with a soft spa-like chamomile scent. It takes a bit of time to sink into your skin (so if you’re using it on your face and worried about the cream sinking in before applying your makeup i.e. not looking for a dewy look, use it at night), but once your skin drinks it up, it won’t feel greasy at all — just perfectly, utterly balanced. And, it will stay that way all day long! I am ADDICTED!!!!
Because of the thickness of the cream, I have found it’s best to pat on rather than rub.
