Skincare for Adventure Cyclists and Outdoor Enthusiasts

Weleda Skincare Gift Ideas For as long as I can remember I have been a user and advocate of natural medicine. I recall putting arnica gel on bumps and bruises as a small child; smelling the relaxing tones of lavender in the bathroom after an active day in the garden; or drinking cups of honey and ginger tea to soothe a dry throat or a cough. At its heart, natural medicine considers the harmonious connection between people and plants — using it to help us recover and thrive in our everyday lives.

For the last two years I have been a Weleda Arnica Ambassador. In that time, I have enjoyed learning even more about Anthroposophic medicine: the holistic view of the human being that promotes a healthy balance between body and mind, using the power of nature and plants.

In this blog post, I share some of my favourite products from the Weleda range. These balms, lotions and gels are what I consider to be the perfect choices for an outdoor enthusiast's bathroom cupboard; helping you to relax, rejuvenate and repair your body and mind for your next training session or adventure. These natural products would make ideal Christmas or birthday gift ideas for cyclists.

Weleda Skin Food

Weleda Skin Food is perhaps the most famous product in Weleda's extensive skincare range. This is more than just a moisturiser: it a rich intensive balm that treats, heals and protects dry and damaged skin. 

The ultimate soothing cream to treat windburn, chapped skin and eczema; Skin Food provides long lasting moisturisation that will keep your skin smooth, soft and flexible — functioning as the protective barrier that it is intended to be. The ultimate skin care for those that are tough on the hands, face and body.

Weleda Calendula Skin Protection Balm

This soothing balm has a multitude of uses, and is perfect to intensively nourish or protect any dry patches, chapped skin or dry lips. It is made with nourishing organic sunflower and avocado oils, cocoa seed butter, protective candelilla and carnauba waxes, and infused with skin-caring calendula extract.

This product is ideal for soothing redness, chafing or dryness. I personally use it to avoid chapped skin around the upper lip and on fingertips on cold blustery winter rides and kayaking adventures.

Weleda Skin Protection Balm and Calendula Salve

Weleda Natural Shower Gels

From protection to post-ride pampering. The Weleda range of shower gels will leave you cleansed, refreshed and rejuvenated after a tough winter ride. 

From relaxing lavender, to energising ginger or warming star anise; these natural infusions are all you need to pick yourself up and be ready to ride again, no matter how hard and cold the day's adventures.

Weleda Natural Bath Soaks

If you are more of a bath person rather than a showerer, then you can benefit from the extensive range of Weleda Bath Soaks. My two favourites as the Arnica Muscle Soak and the Pine Reviving Bath Milk.

Arnica Muscle Soak combines the natural power of arnica – to relieve aching, bruising and strains – with sensual rosemary and lavender oils, and invigorating birch leaf extract. Relaxing in a tub of warm water infused with this bath soak brings guaranteed relief for a weary body and mind.

The Pine Reviving Bath Milk is infused with the warming scent of aromatic pine forests, for a restorative and uplifting bath that helps to awake senses and clear your breathing – perfect after a tiring or stressful day.

Weleda Arnica Products

Arnica is a small flower with huge benefits. This historic natural medicine helps to soothe aching muscles and promote blood flow to areas of bruising and tension — to provide relief and help improve recovery.

Arnica Bath Milk (mentioned above) also comes in a smaller travel bottle pictured below, and the Weleda Arnica Cooling Gel is the perfect topical treatment for your muscles before or after exertion.
