The combination of the chilly weather and the dry heat in our home is starting to take a toll on my skin. Whenever my skin gets dry in the winter it gets scratched easily and I keep my fingers crossed every year my hands won’t start cracking like my mother’s have always done. Weleda’s Body Oils Essentials Kit and Pomegranate Regenerating Body Care Kits are not only moisuruzing aides for your skin, but are perfect stocking stuffers. They are the perfect purse or travel size as well if you or a loved one can’t live without their full size versions when out of the house, traveling for work or visiting family for the holidays (They are also a great way to sample some of their products before investing in a full size version).
I love the scent of the pomegranate line and the red packaging is fitting for the season as well. The body wash is refreshing and the organic shea butter and avocado oils in the hand cream are just a couple of the skin-saving ingredients to keep my hands buttery soft. I am new to body oils and the Pomegranate Body Oil (also included in the Body Oil Essentials Kit) is not only moisturizing, but is said to slow down skin aging–I need to remind myself that now is the time to feed my skin andslow down skin aging, which is obviously a lot easier in the long run than reversing it.
The Body Oils Essentials Kit is a great way to get to know the different oils, their benefits to my skin and different applications without having to buy full size versions and allowed me to get to know a handful of additional Weleda products. So go ahead and treat yourself or a loved one this holiday season with some skin saving goodies and learn more about some of the products below.
