A sensitive skin requires gentle skin care that also strengthens the condition towards a balanced and healthy skin.
How do I determine a Sensitive Skin Condition?
Redness, blotchy, thin skin. Possibly accompanied by permanently red cheek/nose region (visible capillaries), itching, flakiness. A skin that reacts easily.
Dr. Hauschka and Sensitive Skin
Dr. Hauschka Skin Care is particularly suited to a sensitive skin due to the gentle and strengthening nature of our products that are formulated to bring balance back to an unbalanced skin.
Often such a sensitive skin condition has come about through the use of overly harsh exfoliating products and/or lathering, overly alkaline cleansing products.
Dr. Hauschka product prescriptions are not black and white. Your particular skin condition is as uniquely individual as you are, therefore we always recommend having a facial treatment and seek advice from a Dr. Hauschka Esthetician for the optimum product prescription and daily regime. This is particularly so with a sensitive skin.
Recommended Daily Ritual
Regenerating Serum – if you also require support for a maturing skin
Regenerating Serum – if required
We recommend Clarifying Toner for a sensitive skin because it contains Daisy which is anti-inflammatory and Echinacea for its anti-bacterial properties. Often a sensitive skin’s protection has been compromised with flakiness.
Some sensitive skins also carry heat. If that’s the case look to day care with cooling properties such as Quince or Regenerating, Rose has warming properties.
Rose Day Cream Light: suitable for a sensitive skin
Rose Day Cream: suitable for a dry, sensitive skin, and contains St. John’s wort which is calming
Melissa Day Cream is specifically formulated for a Sensitive Combination (oily t-zone, dry/normal cheeks) skin
Quince Day Cream: usually recommended for a normal skin however the cooling and soothing properties of quince make it also an option for a sensitive skin
Toned Day Cream: our tinted moisturiser that’s suitable for a sensitive skin and also helps to conceal redness and even skin tone. For a skin that’s more on the dry side.
Regenerating Serum and/or Regenerating Day Cream are formulated to support a maturing sensitive skin
We highly recommend Soothing Mask as a twice a week mask treatment however it may be used also as a day time moisturiser to sooth and balance a hypersensitive skin or simply to give skin a helping hand boost for a month.
A skin cell cycle is 28-30 days and mirroring this rhythm we also highly recommend a 30 night treatment of Rhythmic Conditioner Sensitive, one ampoule per evening and instead of Toner to strengthen and calm a sensitive skin.
If your skin requires more support than Rhythmic Conditioner Sensitive we would then recommend Intensive Treatment 03 a one bottle/one month treatment for a hypersensitive and/or stressed skin condition.
