It’s so cold in NYC, that when I pour boiling water into a “room temperature” (aka freezing) tea cup, what looks like dry ice smoke, starts spewing out of the top of it. I half expect an 80's hair band to emerge from the cloud and start yelling, “ Are you ready to rock?”
Yes, it’s that cold.
It’s so cold that even dogs are wearing hoodies inside.
But the parts of my body that are exposed to the elements, my hands and face, look like they’ve just crawled out from under an avalanche.
(Random tip: If you ever get buried in an avalanche, clear some room in front of your face and spit. Gravity will take the saliva down, so you know to dig the other way, to get up and out.)
But, I digress (into the plot of “Aspen Extreme”). So, I’ve been reading reviews of Weleda Skin Food on Amazon. Pretty much everyone, gave it 5 out of 5 stars, claiming that for dry skin, there’s nothing better.
It’s made with extracts of Viola, Chamomile and Calendula (soothes skin), and it’s free of synthetic fragrances, colors and preservatives.
I applied Weleda Skin Food to ½ my face. It wasn’t greasy or of a pore-clogging consistency. I then dressed in as many layers as I could muster (while still being able to move my limbs) and ventured out into the cold, to run some errands.
When I returned to my apartment, I looked in the mirror. The Skin Food side of my face had a nice healthy glow and was still nicely hydrated (like I’d actually been drinking the 8 glasses of water a day, I swore I would). The other side of my face, looked dull and dry.
You can use Skin Food on the face, body or anywhere that’s rough and dry, like the elbows, feet or hands.
So, if you too are somewhere shivering right now, and your skin feels like it’s starting to develop freezer-burn, you might want to check out Weleda Skin Food.
I have to go put on something with a hood now.
I’ve never tried any other Weleda products. Are any of them worth checking out?
