As a young twenty-something year old that is quite a bit I have on my plate and it eventually takes a toll on a person. Naturally, I cherish my moments of relaxation. When I think about it, I can’t help but laugh a little bit because when I do manage to relax and unwind, I’m often yelling at myself on the inside for being so super-duper lazy….
So I have a few traditional things that I do to relax and unwind. First and foremost, Netflix, a movie, or catching up on my go-to TV shows. Next option is a steaming hot bath paired with candles, a book, and dim lighting. Third option (which should really just be filed under the imagination category) is a good solid uninterrupted nap. That uninterrupted part is an extreme rarity when you have four large, young, high-energy dogs living under your roof (but i love um!). No matter which option I pick, I’m usually pairing it with some sort of skin care and personal spa-like treatments (if I can find the time).
Recently, I discovered Weleda Skin Food and it has been an absolutely amazing asset during these winter months and the inevitable dry skin that accompanies them.
Now I am a survivor of horrible skin and scarring acne so I am always trying to find new and better-quality products that won’t harm or irritate my skin or promote break-outs. I have been using Weleda skin food (which is an all-over lotion) on my face for about a week now and I am in love! My skin feels rich and supple and I have even been using it for an under-eye cream at night to help with the undeniable dark circles and bags that have just made themselves comfortable as a part of my life.
This stuff is packed with great ingredients like oils from Sunflower Seed and Rosemary, Almond oil, Beeswax, and most importantly, Chamomile. It has a relatively strong citrus-y smell but I think it’s wonderful, personally, and if I read correctly it is just because of the natural herby ingredients in this miracle potion!
I have had no complaints other than the fact that it can be a bit oily but that is only if you are using far too much product. A little goes a very long way with this stuff. I’ve used it as a night cream and even under my makeup during the day just allowing it time to soak in. I love every bit of it with extra emphasis on the healthy glow it gives my problematic skin.
Best part is, this miracle-in-a-tube is only $14.

And while you do that I will be enjoying these five-minute of quite time before I hit the hay and prepare for another crazy day of to-do lists.
