When it's cold, your skin needs good food and great protection

Thereís a change in the air. The nights are getting colder; the sun sits low in the sky; the leaves have forsaken the trees and lie dry and crackly on the ground. And quite frankly my skin is feeling a bit the same Ė almost as though the moisture has been sucked out of it.† Emergency help is on its way.

Firstly, the face. It's so out there on the front line, exposed to the wind and weather. For me, Violet & Rosehip replenishing cream is a good part of the answer.† Okay, I do the cleansing-toning thing, and use my unbeatably Triple Rose Face Oil, but Violet & Rosehip is the saviour. I know itís expensive but, let me tell you, itís worth it.

Itís a truly sumptuous, richly nutritious face and neck cream †that is particularly suitable for mature or dry skin that need extra nourishment. The nutrients come from borage (starflower) oil along with super- rich sweet almond oil and rosehip oil. These oils are famous for their cell repair properties which means that while the oils are giving their abundant nourishment, they are also doing their wondrous healing and protection work.

The oils are blended with the cooling and plumping properties of violets and mallow with a kind and gentle base of rose water.† If youíre into details, Sweet violet contains saponins which act as a mild skin tonic alongside mucilage which is soothing and anti-inflammatory. Borage, also known as Starflower, contains high levels of essential fatty acids which are antioxidant and healing. EFAs are necessary for growth and maintenance of healthy skin.

If anything is going to do itís designated work Ė ie feed your skin with plenty of vitamins and moisture right now, heal whatís already happened to it AND †help prevent the formation of wrinkles Ė this Violet & Rosehip is. Itís quite a cream, believe me. And smells deliciously of rose with a hint of healing violet leaves.† Heavenly.

If you havenít already tried it, well, you really should.† So give it a go today, while weíre offering a hefty £8 discount. †Go to http://www.great-elm.com/search.asp?departmentID=10
