Combination Skin, Oily Skin, Pimples – what to do!

Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 9.05.51 AM

Puberty brings about such increases in hormonal activity that most pre-teens and teens are likely to experience acne or pimples. The liver has to metabolise the increased hormonal activity and one of the skin’s many functions is as an organ of elimination, pimples are the result. Pores open to cope with the additional oil production. Even if this situation calms somewhat over time it’s likely that monthly pimples will go on through 20’s and 30’s. Hormonal acne often also features in pregnancy, post natal and menopause and also there’s cosmetic acne caused by petrochemical based occlusive make-up products. Cosmetic brushes and sponges hygiene is important too.

Morning Products:

Cleansing Cream
Our morning deep cleansing product with almond meal that binds particularly well to the night time elimination activities of the skin, yet respects the pH of the skin. The slightly acidic environment of a healthy skin is your protection against bacteria. Cleansing Cream is a first priority product.

Use: Place a large pea size of product in the palm of one hand, moisten with a little water to make and emulsion, not a paste, and with the palms of both hands ‘press and roll’ into the skin, see our above video.  No scrubbing, way too harsh for skin that has to last you a life time.

Cleansing Tip

Clarifying Toner
A hydrating treatment product with active botanicals, contains antibacterial Echinacea and anti-inflammatory Daisy. Perfect ‘after shave’ preparation for guys too!

Use: Just close eyes and mist directly onto skin. This is not a conventional toner that you use with cotton pads.

Normalising Day Oil
With this product we are incorporating homeopathic guidelines, ‘like treats like’ – an oil for an oily skin! Seriously, it calms and regulates oil production, whereas harsh stripping type products just make for more oil production as the skin compensates. Don’t look for that ‘squeaky clean feel’, that means the pH of the skin has been disrupted. NDO regulates oil production and heals with Wild Carrot extract, a rich source of pro- Vitamin A. Plethora of anti-oxidants in a bottle.

Formulation: Apricot Kernel, Almond and Wheat germ oils balance the skin’s natural oil content, while Anthyllis and Carrot extracts calm the skin. Neem, St. John’s wort and Calendula extracts combine to visibly minimise redness and help maintain a healthy, radiant complexion.

Use: Only 3 drops are required on the palm of the hand, warm between the palms of the hands then press into skin still moist with Toner. One bottle will last you ages.

Melissa Day Cream

Melissa Day Cream balances and effectively cares for combination skin. Oily areas are calmed, dry patches are hydrated, the appearance of redness is reduced, and shine is controlled for a balanced, radiant complexion. The medicinal herb Melissa (Lemon Balm) has a fresh and ‘lemony’ aroma that’s wonderfully uplifting.

Formulation: Extracts of Melissa, Daisy, Anthyllis, Witch Hazel and Carrot soothe, working to balance the skin’s natural oil and water content. Tapioca starch provides an even, matte appearance.

Use: Warm around a large pea size of product between the palms of the hands and apply to skin still moist from Toner from the centre of the face, in an outwards direction.  We always work in the direction of lymph flow.

Extra Oily T-Zone Tip:
Apply Normalising Day Oil to the T-zone area, then follow with Melissa Day Cream 

Pure Care Cover Stick
Our incredible pimple treatment product that conceals as well and works in a speedy manner. Contains just the right amount of Tea Tree and Manuka for their anti-bacterial properties, Tapioca Starch to absorb the ‘yucky stuff’, for want of a better word. The quicker a pimple is healed the less likelihood of lifelong scarring.

✓ Covers spots and blemishes effectively.
✓ Antibacterial formula clarifies and harmonises the skin.
✓ Natural waxes help to prevent dryness.
✓ Anthyllis and Calendula assist the skin’s healing processes.
✓ Available in 3 shades

Use:
❤ Use at the first signs of a pimple
❤ Apply to the affected area and blend into the skin
❤ May be applied several times per day if necessary
❤ Follow with Translucent Make-up and Translucent Face Powder to give a flawless finish.  Alternatively use your Normalising Day Oil and/or Melissa Day Cream mixed with Translucent Bronze Concentrate.  Translucent Bronze Concentrate helps to even skin tone.

Note: We don’t use any oil or cream based products on our skin during the night, this is the time that your skin will do most of it’s elimination work, and this natural process needs to function unimpeded.

Night creams impede your skin's natural elimination processes during the night.

Extra Care for Acne, Blemishes or a Combination Skin
These extras do make all the difference!

Once a week complete a Facial Steam Bath and Cleansing Clay Mask, to draw impurities, followed by a Rejuvenating Mask which helps to refine pores and is healing to any new scarring, soothing, calming and cooling – love this product!

On another night of the week cleanse early in the evening and apply Rejuvenating Mask and leave to absorb as long as possible, removing with a warm, moist compress cloth prior to bedtime.

Skin Tips:

  • Lemon juice and warm water first thing, before breakfast, every morning helps to keep skin clear.
  • We promote Hydrate and Compress the skin for softening the pores and enabling a deeper cleanse, however please wash your Compress daily. Check out our ‘Morning Ritual Video’ above. Ideally change your pillow slip daily too.
  • Wash hands frequently and don’t touch your face or pick, because of the bacteria on your hands or under your nails.
  • Don’t use lathering, overly alkaline or harsh exfoliant type cleansers that ‘strip’ the skin resulting in even more oil production by the skin to compensate. These overly harsh cleansers also disrupt the acid mantle of the skin, and the acidic environment of a healthy skin is our protection against bacteria.
  • Drink plenty of water, at least 6-8 glasses daily and eat your 5 servings a day of the freshest fruit and veg, steer clear of fizzy drinks, fatty foods and if you know chocolate and sugary items give you pimples keep away from them.

Tip from Jose, our Esthetician Trainer Manager, “Never ever squeeze”, says Jose, “as this often brings about collapse of the follicle wall and infection in the deeper levels of the skin, which could result in cystic acne”.

Make-up:

Aimee’s Story

It has now been a month since I was introduced to Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, and the results have been astounding! After receiving a personalised assessment of my needs, the Dr. Hauschka Team recommended a daily ritual programme which was customised specifically for me, and worked to target the areas that I was most concerned about. I love that customisation and personalisation underpins the whole process! It’s awesome to know that the products recommended are the best products for my skin condition; I know that I will never again be caught in a situation where I have purchased products which are unsuitable for my skin. I have tried many skin care products before, but I have found none to be as effective as Dr. Hauschka in reducing pore size and blemishes, and in making my skin look and feel a million dollars. And it’s not just me noticing! I now often receive compliments from family, friends, and acquaintances about the obvious changes they can see in my skin. I have not changed my diet or routine, but for the daily use of beautiful Dr Hauschka skin care.

What’s even more exciting is that whilst the changes are evident on the outside, people often don’t realise that I also use Dr. Hauschka body care products for Fibromyalgia pain. Since using Dr. Hauschka Birch Arnica Body Oil and Rosemary Arm and Leg Toner, I have felt a noticeable difference in the degree of pain that I am experiencing. Again this can only be put down to the fabulous organic ingredients which are used in Dr. Hauschka products. After being so dependent on medicinal products to try to alleviate and reduce pain, it is such a welcome change to have found natural products which work so well! I could not rave any higher about the Dr. Hauschka brand, and the Team who are always so contactable and personable. I have truly been converted, and will now only use Dr. Hauschka skin and body care! Thank you for making such remarkable products!
