The Creamiest, Dreamiest Moisture For Your Skin
Today I saw my breath in the air for the first time this winter. That can only mean one thing—it’s Skin Cream season.
When the air is brisk and you come home from outside feeling windswept and chapped all over, it’s time to up your moisturizing game; but more importantly, it’s time to up your nurturing game.
One of our very first products, our tried-and-true Skin Cream is a multipurpose wonder balm and a must for every bathroom cabinet.
Here are five reasons our Skin Cream is an eternal obsession of mine, and why your rose-y winter cheeks (all four of them) need to make its acquaintance.
This is the sweater layer of skin care. When your skin is dry and needs a little something extra, layer on Skin Cream as the last step in your routine after toner and face oil (especially before bed). The Skin Cream is thick like a balm, so it traps moisture in without clogging pores, meaning you’ll wake to skin that is soft, supple, and nourished. If you’ve applied it generously (and you deserve nothing less), sleep on a towel, so you don’t grease up your pillowcase.
You can put Skin Cream everywhere because it is so gentle and was formulated for sensitive skin. Use it on chapped lips or chapped elbows, on sensitive facial skin or on your baby’s bum. The healing properties of Skin Cream come from the nutrient-rich oils and butters concentrated in this formula, including nutrient-dense tamanu, rosehip, and pumpkin seed oils. These oils address dry, itchy skin, while reducing scars and fine lines and bringing back elasticity.
It’s Also A Face Cleanser
One of our favorite multipurpose uses of Skin Cream is as a cleanser for your face and a makeup remover. Just apply the Skin Cream all over dry facial skin and gently remove it with a warm, damp washcloth, like you would an oil-based cleanser. Then continue with your post-cleanse routine (toner + moisturizer + skin cream). It’s rich, but it will not clog pores.
Skin Cream is essential-oil free which makes it suitable for sensitive or reactive skin. We wanted it to be a super healer, so we put only the gentlest, most nurturing-yet-effective ingredients inside each little pot. There are no overpowering fragrances either. It smells grass and nutty, like the butters and oils it is made of.
For Baby Bums (And Every Bum)
Our Skin Cream can be used for the whole family. I use it on my son’s chapped lips in the winter, and when he was tiny, I used it for diaper rash. It’s soothing for nursing nipples and pregnant bellies, too. If your baby’s skin is too sensitive for soap, you can apply a thin layer, and then gently remove it with a warm, damp cloth to cleanse even the freshest, newest-to-the-world skin.
