Ingredient Spotlight: Organic Sweet Almond Oil
The taste of sweet almond stirs up all kinds of memories; it makes me think of fall, of long walks in the park, colored leaves, a cup of tea, of a cozy fireplace and the taste of homemade cookies. Definitely, the almond is fall’s child. Weleda’s organic sweet almond is grown in the hills of a Valencian community close to Alicante, Spain. In this warm climate, the almond trees are pampered by sunshine all year long. In spring, the sweet almond trees blossom, in shades of white and pink, and by fall, when it’s starting to get colder outside, the sweet almond nuts are shaken from the trees and left on the ground to dry. Before winter...

When Facial Time Becomes Family Time
I recently gave my husband, Dan, a mini Weleda facial for his 40th birthday, using the skin tips that I’ve learned at Weleda.  It turned into a fun family affair when our 6-year-old, Ben, decided he wanted to help. Before we started, Dan shaved with our Men’s Shaving Cream, and I washed his face with the Almond Cleansing Lotion—it’s perfect for sensitive skin like his. Next I gently massaged on our soothing Almond Moisture Cream, and then he laid down for a few minutes with a hot towel on his face, listening to music. While he was relaxing, Ben and I prepared a facial mask.  We mixed clay earth with a few drops of...

Video: Beauty Do's and Don'ts
Our best-selling Skin Food moisturizer was recently featured in a segment on ABC's Good Morning America Health, called "Beauty Do's and Don'ts: Simple Tips Everyone Should Incorporate into their Beauty Regimen." Dr. Susan Evans, a dermatologist in Beverly Hills, tells you which ingredients to look out for and which to avoid when you're shopping for skin care products. Natural oils, she says, are better for your skin and your health than ingredients that are derived from petroleum, and they moisturize just as well. Skin Food is such a wonderful, do-it-all moisturizer, you can even use it on your lips, and you won't have to worry about ingesting...

Sun Safety Tips
I can always tell when summer is in full swing on Monday mornings when weekenders return from the beach, looking like they forgot to apply enough sunscreen. I also see the sunburned faces and shoulders of baseball fans whenever I take the train to New York City on a day when the Yankees are playing at home. Personally, I am a fan of biking and rollerblading outdoors during the warmer months, so I definitely have to wear sunscreen. My skin is very fond of our Sea Buckthorn Body Oil as an after-sun treat. It absorbs very easily and contains antioxidant-rich organic sesame seed oil to promote skin renewal and protect against skin-damaging influences. I...
