Many of us know that moisturising our skin is very important. And I’m not only talking about your face. The skin on the rest of your body also needs enough hydration, especially in the winter, otherwise it will become dry, cracked and will ultimately age faster. That is, of course, absolutely not what we want.
Finding the right moisturiser for your skin type is also something you should pay close attention to. Using the wrong product can cause various skin problems like milia, redness or even acne. You should also keep in mind that the skin on your face is thinner than on most of your body parts, so you will need a different kind of moisturiser.
For example, I generally have combination skin with an oily T-zone and pretty large pores, so I can’t use really heavy moisturisers. But the skin on my arms and legs is very dry and needs an intensely hydrating cream. The one I’m using now is this rich and highly moisturising body cream by MÁDARA Cosmetics. It has a thick consistency but still absorbs very fast leaving the skin soft, smooth and elastic. It helps a lot with dry and red skin, and it’s extremely long-lasting. I really love it.
I’m also crazy about the scents of the MÁDARA products. The plants that grow in the cold northern climate of Latvia have a very distinct fresh smell. It’s like applying pure nature on your skin. This body lotion, for example, is formulated with horsetail, thyme, lemon balm and natural essential oils, which give it a lovely, calming, ‘green’, citrusy scent.
Besides smelling great and being highly hydrating, this body cream is also cruelty-free, gluten-free, vegan and ECOCERT certified. On top of that, 99% of the ingredients are natural and 22% organic, and the tube is 60% recycled. How great is that?
Definitely try it and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!
About the brand: MÁDARA Cosmetics is a Latvian organic, high-end skincare brand. The products are made of northern herb essences, arctic berries and seed oils. The harsh and cold northern climate in Latvia gives its plants extraordinary healing properties. These enable MÁDARA to create products that can really protect your skin against terrible weather conditions. The Nordic nations always had tremendous respect for the environment and I can only hope that the rest of the world will follow their example soon.
