Rosy cheeks rescue
This cold weather is taking its toll on my skin, particularly when I'm out a couple of hours a day, every day, mucking out and caring for my horse. Runny noses and icy feet are par for the course but I've received information about a product that could turn out to be a favourite - it helps prevent chapped lips and red cheeks.
Calendula Weather Protection Cream by Weleda is actually formulated for babies but works just as well on adults apparently. It is quickly absorbed, gel-like, full of natural ingredients including organic sweet almond oil and of course calendula. It is also suitable for vegetarians and is free from synthetic perfumes, colours and ingredients.
I haven't tried it yet but if it's anything like Weleda's calendula nappy cream then it promises to be great. I can speak with authority about that product - when my daughter was little it was the only cream that worked for her, as a barrier cream and for preventing nappy rash. The fact it contains only natural ingredients was another great attraction for me and we got through tubes of the stuff. Loved it.
