feed your skin for under $11

what goes on your outside is just was important as what you are putting on the inside of your body, especially since your skin and nails can absorb something like 60% of what gets slathered on to them. 

what does that mean?  the chemicals that may make certain lotions and makeup appearance amazing on the outside can also be seeping into your bloodstream and wreaking havoc on your body systems (you know, bad stuff like cancer and infertility...). 

scared yet?  you should be.  this post isn't going to go on to give you nightmares, but it is going to share wtih you a great new does-all moisturizing lotion/cream that i recently tested - weleda's skin food.  it does what it says it does - it feeds your skin, with lots of safe ingredients including a bouquet of essential oils to target dry and damaged skin - from your face, to your elbows to your gnarly toes, it works great everywhere!

user tips:

  • a little goes a long way. 
  • apply to freshly cleaned skin to get the best rate of absorption.
  • if you are looking to soften skin over night, you can apply skin food more liberally and then wear some cotton gloves/socks.
