Victoria Beckham shares her ultimate body beauty secret.
We’re starting to approach that time of year again when we reach for our winter coats, wrap a scarf around our necks and brave the colder climes. But, with the ever fluctuating temperatures of the chilly outdoors versus stiflingly hot public transport, combined with the skin-drying effect of the radiator determinedly emitting heat, our skin starts to suffer. Think dryness, flakiness and itchiness, to name just three issues.
Of course, there are plenty of moisturisers out there designed to tackle the winter skin blues, but, with so many on offer, it can be hard to know which one is worth investing.
Thank goodness, then, for Victoria Beckham.
While you might expect the fashion designer to slather herself in the über luxe Crème de la Mer, Beckham has revealed that her favourite moisturiser actually hails from the high street.
Priced at a very reasonable £10.95, say hello to Weleda Skin Food.
“What I love about it is that it’s not particularly expensive and you can find it anywhere. The formula is so thick and buttery,” she told Into The Gloss.
Made from a blend of gentle viola tricolor, calendula and chamomile, in a rich, thick base of oils and beeswax, the cream aims to nourish. But Beckham, naturally, likes to add her own twist to the application process to ensure her skin is left feeling as soft and supple as possible.
“When I have a tan, I’ll mix it with coconut oil — the same you use to cook with — and cover my entire body with it. I suppose some people may not like the greasiness, but it helps me hold on to the colour,” she says.
“And by the time I leave the house, I feel as if it’s really sunk in. Like my skin’s had a good drink.”
Beckham, who recently collaborated with beauty brand Estée Lauder on a makeup line, has only one qualm with the moisturiser: “I go through so many of these…I wish they had bigger ones.”
