Personal Care – Outdoor Wellness Essentials from Weleda


Outdoor pursuits in the winter months are tough on your skin, body and immune system. Windburn and cold temperatures take their toll on delicate skin, while your body often takes knocks and abuse in cold temperatures. The range of skincare and wellness products from Weleda is what keeps me functioning at my best through the freezing and wet months; this collection of products is my personal go-to.

Winter Skincare

Weleda Skin Food Face Care provides you with the protection, rejuvenation and cleansing that your face needs when it is being blasted by rain, wind and snow. Start using the Nourishing Day Cream to hydrate and soften the skin before heading out into the elements, then cleanse with the Nourishing Cleansing Balm and Nourishing Night Cream when your day of adventuring is done. The Skin Food range has long been my favourite range of moisturisers, providing un-matched levels of soothing and protection for dry and cracked skin.

I also highly recommend the Weleda Everon Lip Balm to avoid chapped lips and help prevent problems such as cold sores and angular cheilitis. The soothing lip balm helps to seal in moisture and protect lips from windburn and cracking.

Winter Hand Care

Just as your face and lips suffer in the winter elements, so too do your hands. A rich moisturising hand cream like the Weleda Winter Comfort will nourish and protect your hands, with moisturisation from natural ingredients such as Shea Butter and Sesame Seed Oil. The skin on your hands is one of your primary barriers for defence against inbound infection, so keep it subtle and functioning at its best.

Winter Immune Support

Weleda Sea Buckthorn Elixir is a tasty natural drink that is rich in vitamin C, a nutrient that helps the body to fight off free radicals and protect cells from oxidative stress; helping to maintain an energy yielding metabolism and a normal healthy immune system. Weleda recommend this elixir for sports men and women, to help support vitality and wellbeing in an active outdoors life.

Arnica Recovery Balms and Baths

If you’re like me, winter tends to come with a heightened number of bumps and bruises, as well as weary and aching muscles from long hours on the bike. Arnica is a wonderful restorative homeopathic medicine that effectively reduces inflammation, making it ideal to treat muscular aches, pain, stiffness, sprains and bruises.

Available in a skin salve to apply directly to bruises, as well as tablet form, cooling gel, and as a Recuperating Bath Milk; the Weleda Arnica range will help to soothe and relax tired muscles, getting them back to their best as soon as possible.

Winter Freshness

The benefits of natural and restorative skincare can be quickly undone if you then strip away the moisturisation and nourishment with a chemical-based shower gel. The range of shower gels from Weleda are gentle on your skin and leave you feeling cleansed and reinvigorated; a particular favourite of mine is the three-in-one Energy Fresh.

Winter Homeopathic Medicines

Finally, it is worth giving a shout-out to two Weleda oromucosal sprays that help with the inevitable winter coughs and colds – Weleda Rhinodoron® and Weleda Cold Relief. Rhinodoron® helps to moisturise, cleanse and care for dry nasal passages, something that can be irritating in very cold and dry winter weather; while Weleda Cold Relief is a homeopathic medicine that provides symptomatic relief of the common cold and flu-like symptoms. Both have an earned place in my medicine bag, and help to keep you working at your best through the winter months.
