Dry Skin Fix

Dryness and dehydration is a prime reason for premature wrinkles and lines so it’s imperative we protect our skin from this condition.

Daily Ritual
Morning:
Cleansing Cream
Facial Toner

Day Care Options: 
1) If your skin is ‘parched’ dry we would recommend Moisturising Mask used as a day cream until condition improves.
2) Protective Blend: Moisturising Day Cream to activate the skin’s sebaceous activity and Rose Day Cream over the top to nourish and protect.
3) Antioxidant Blend: see information below. Rose Day Cream blended with a couple of drops of Normalising Day Oil.
3) Rose Day Cream
4) Regenerating Serum and Regenerating Day Cream is our usual recommendation for maturing skin support, however as Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Day Cream is more rich we would recommend to use on your face for a drier skin that still requires firming and toning.

Evening:
Cleansing Milk
Facial Toner
Regenerating Serum 
if required for a maturing skin

Did you know?
That night cream use exacerbates a dry skin condition. Use our gentle cleansing products and give your skin 28-30 days (skin cell cycle) on an exclusively Dr. Hauschka regime and see the difference in the health and vitality of your skin.

Solution to dryness and dehydration?

Moisturising Mask is our ultimate skin fix, twice a week, cleanse early in the evening and apply the mask, around your eye contour too, and leave on to absorb all evening, removing with a moist, tepid cloth before bed. 
If your skin is extremely dry you may also use Moisturising Mask as your ‘day cream’ for a month or until condition improves.
 This blend of botanicals soothes, protects and revitalises while sealing in moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and supple.

– Quince seed extract replenishes and helps dry skin to retain moisture.
– Nourishing almond, avocado, olive and jojoba oils hydrate the outer layer of skin
– Rose wax and organic shea butter soothe and protect.

The skin healers and antioxidants are Vitamins A, C and E, and the optimum choice when topically applying these vitamins is when they come in the form of the whole plant extract.
Rosehip for Vitamin C and Wheatgerm for Vitamin E, both found in Rose Day Cream formulation. Mix with a drop of two of Normalising Day Oil prior to application to skin still moist from Toner. That glorious orange colour comes from Wild Carrot Extract, a rich source of pro Vitamin A.

 There you have it, a potent antioxidant blend!

Intensive Skin Care with Mask Blends:

Jose, our Esthetician Trainer, has a couple of tricks up her sleeve to keep skin looking fabulous. This first blend is so uplifting that when our UK Esthetician tried it she only did it on one half of her face. She promptly had to do the other half because of the difference it had made.

Firming & Moisturising Mask Blend

• Cleanse early in the evening
• Apply a generous amount of Regenerating Serum – also to eye contour area as an eye mask
• Then apply Moisturising Mask over the top – also to eye contour as an eye mask
• Leave to absorb all evening, removing just before bedtime

The other blend is for those of you that have red, irritated, flaky skin as well as dryness. You may still wish to use Regenerating Serum as well if you usually do.

Soothing & Moisturising Mask Blend
• Cleanse early in the evening
• Apply a generous amount of a mixture of Soothing Mask and Moisturising Mask – including eye contour area
• Leave to absorb all evening, removing just before bedtime

A dry skin needs help to achieve balance and we highly recommend a one month treatment with a nightly Rhythmic Night Conditioner ampoule instead of Toner.
