I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Julia Roberts and I probably don't have much in common. (Though, Julia, if you're reading this: I'm open to a Freaky Friday switch.) Anyway, I don't know how I came across this fun tidbit about her favorite hand cream, but it turns out we do share a deep love of Weleda Skin Food.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with this natural salve, you must know: It is hands down the best moisturizer ever—especially for those of us who obsessively wash our hands.
Loaded with essential fatty acids and vitamin E, it feels downright decadent when you rub it into your skin. The key is to use less than you think you need (because it is very rich) and massage it in until it's fully absorbed—at which point, all that's left behind is a subtle sheen and a light citrusy scent. We've gone through more tubes of this stuff than we can count and have even started using it as a subtle highlighter whenever we need to refresh our makeup.
"I put it on my hands after I wash the dishes, and wind up putting it on my elbows and feet," Roberts previously told InStyle. "Before you know it, I've squeezed this poor little green tube into a twist." Same, Julia, same.
