We may not have been affected by the arctic vortex but still have our fair share of freezing temperatures in the Uk.
Sudden changes between hot & cold are also extremely damaging for the skin and every winter, I'm left with dry patches and cracked lips.
It's particularly important to protect from the wind and if you're - like me - a fellow commuter then I'd recommend to try Weleda Calendula Weather Protection Cream* that caters for the whole family. In fact, Weleda Calendula range has been specifically formulated for the delicate skin of babies, therefore suitable for adult and sensitive skin too.
The whole line (includes body lotion, soap, massage oil, nappy cream, …) contains calendula officinalis which helps wound healing, reduce inflammation, and - as an antiseptic - is also prescribed for minor burns, cuts and ulcerations.
Weleda Calendula Weather Protection Cream comes like a balmy yellow gel and appears a bit oily straight out of the tube; I was pleasantly surprise with the consistency because it's not sticky at all and whilst it creates a barrier, it also absorbs fairly quickly into the skin.
I've been putting a layer on my lips, nostrils and hands before leaving the house in the mornings and I can put my gloves on in a matter of minutes; then I reapply it at lunchtime when I go for a wee stroll with my walking group at work.
Whilst Weleda Skin Food is a reliable cream to repair needy skin at the end of the day, Weleda Calendula Weather Protection Cream has become my go-to product to prevent damage from chilly weather.
Have you tried the Weleda Calendula range yet?
