If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed I have been moving to a 100% natural and more vegan diet over the last year, which I believe fully impacts your skin, hair and nails, particularly if you have any kind of skin complaint like exzcema or psoriasis. Whilst in Canada earlier this year I picked up a jar of all natural face cream at a farmers market for $10 and it turned out to be the best moisturiser I've ever used (including Creme De La Mer). It confirmed my thoughts that natural products (food and topical) really are best way to look after yourself inside and out and I've been on the hunt for natural skincare ever since. I recently came across Lyons Leaf, a wonderful couple who make homemade natural skincare from their garden and has grown into a full product line and winner of skincare awards. They grow as much as possible themselves and choose natural ingredients in the most unprocessed state possible. All their products are made with water free recipes which don't require harsh preservatives and emulsifiers, ie. zero chemicals and they never use artificial colour or fragrance, everything I want to hear.

I have tried most of their small product range and their products are great. I recently wrote about the Natural Beauty Balm, and their Healing Calendula Cream is just as incredible. A 100% natural and effective emollient that's completely free of artificial chemicals and made from their own homegrown calendula oil (known as nature's first aid) it is a general healing cream and can be applied to minor abrasions and rashes on any inflamed skin and as a natural treatment for eczema,psoriasis, acne and rosacea. It not only safely soothes, repairs and heals scars, perhaps most importantly for sufferers of inflammatory skin disorders it also bolsters and repairs the causes of flare ups and stops further damage, soothing without side effects. Being completely free of artificial chemicals means it is a safe emollient for even the most sensitive skin. All of the ingredients are non-comedogenic (non pore blocking) so it is suitable for both dry and oily skin.

If you suffer from eczema & psoriasis the Healing Calendula Cream is a must. I have the small pot of this in my kit and give it to anyone who suffers and they have all said they got immediate relief. I have seen it clear up eczema flare ups in 24 hours and I personally experienced it completely heal the most extremely painful leg razor burn in the world in a few hours. I also use it when my awful hand problem flares up and it settles it right back down.

It's the perfect size and bottle shape for travelling and also not a glass bottle (regular readers will know how I feel about that). At £14.95 for 120ml It doesn't seem like a lot of product for the price but I really mean it when I say you only need a small amount of product, if you've ever used coconut oil you'll know a little goes a very long way. Being water free means their products go much further, you only need to use very small amounts, much smaller than conventional creams, making them extremely cost efficient. It also comes in a smaller 30ml jar for £8.99 which is the perfect handbag or overnight size. This is a fantastic product if you're a sufferer or just for those razor burn emergencies.

All Lyons leaf products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, are not tested on animals and are 100% natural.

  1. Hello dear friend
    Having dry, itchy and sensitive skin is usually the situation when you suffer with eczema and this means that you can't use just any old skin cream to moisturize. However, because eczema skin is usually dry and tight, it is essential to find the best skin cream for eczema to allow you to sufficiently moisturize your skin without getting itchy.Read more at-skin cream for eczema
