LADY@LXG: A Natural Solution for Dry Skin
"The Body is a great machine and it knows how to take care of itself. I think more often than not, the things we do to our skin or our bodies can hold it back from doing its proper job."
- Julia Roberts.
If you are a frequent reader of this blog you will be aware that I am a huge fan of Kneipp. I absolutely love all their products. And you will also know that I have rather dry skin, probably due to all those showers I keep taking (3 - 4 a day, yes really) since I have an aversion to smelling less than fresh.
Anyway, lets move away from my neuroses and focus instead on my latest Kneipp product of choice, which is their Almond Blossom range, created specifically for those with dry and sensitive skin.
The Kneipp® Almond Blossom Body Oil is made of almond, sunflower and jojoba oils enhanced with vitamins A & E which help regenerate skin while also helping to protect it from harmful environmental aggressors. It has a delicate almost floral scent (no it does not smell of almonds), absorbs quickly, improves elasticity and leaves your skin feeling soft and silky and most importantly, not greasy. In fact, I use this oil every night now that I used up all my Jasmine and Argan oil. I have decided to alternate between the almond blossom and the jasmine and argan body oils, as they are both very light weight (the almond blossom is actually more light weight) smell lovely and keeps my skin silky smooth.

Kneipp® Almond Blossom Gentle Body Wash is specially formulated with natural plant-based ingredients for dry skin. If you like foaming washes, this is not for you. This body wash is lovely and perfect for someone like me who is constantly showering but doesn’t want their skin to dry out. it cleanses very gently but thoroughly. Rich almond and jojoba oils nourish the skin and help maintain its natural protective layer so skin feels clean, scented and soft.

Kneipp® Almond Blossom Hand Cream I actually have a tube of this miracle hand cream in my kitchen, in both my toilets and beside my bed, so that I have no excuse not to moisturize my hands every time I wash them. Made with sweet almond oil, avocado oil, Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Bisabolol, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), it keeps hands and cuticles soft and scented! If you have brittle nails or rough hands, do give this hand cream a try. It really does work as well as much more expensive products that I have tried.
