Lip Service

For some it meant a chance for divinity, for others a reason for divorce or even a risk of death. For lipstick to be triumphant, it truly had to run the gauntlet. In the end though, it won over women’s lips and hearts.

The tradition of lip decoration is an age-old one: the ancient Mesopotamians were the first women to adorn their lips, and did so with crushed gemstones. During excavations in the Sumerian city of Ur, researchers uncovered a kind of lip ointment from 3500 BC. This is the oldest such find to date.

Whether warriors or queens, the ancient Egyptians also decorated their lips to resemble their gods. For upper class Roman and Japanese women, lip colour was even mandatory as it distinguished them from commoners. Conversely, the ancient Greeks saw nothing noble in make-up. In their culture, red lips were also a form of social segregation, but here it was artists and prostitutes who had to wear make-up so that they could be easily distinguished.

While ointments and waxes were initially used, the use of sticks was introduced in the Baroque era. Coloured particles, often acquired from crushed red cochineal insects, were mixed with ground alabaster or plaster to form a paste. This was rolled into shape and dried in the sun. Catherine the Great was even more innovative and chose a brand new kind of beauty regime: the Russian Empress commanded her serving ladies to suck as hard as possible on her lips and lightly bite them. This enhanced their blood circulation and made them look visibly swollen.

Few men could resist sensual lips. In 1770, the British parliament therefore intervened and ruled that women who lured men with red lips and trapped them into marriage were liable to prosecution. All marriages based on such situations could be annulled. During the French Revolution, this beauty regime not only made women liable to prosecution but also put their lives at risk; anyone with red lips was exposed as an aristocrat, with the possible sentence of death by guillotine.

The turning point
100 years later the turning point finally came: in 1883, the lipstick was born. A Parisian perfume manufacturer presented the Stylo d’Armour made from beeswax, castor oil and deer tallow at the world exhibition in Amsterdam. As it was extremely expensive and only wrapped in tissue paper, it was initially ridiculed as a ‘Saucisse’ or little sausage. Despite this, the French actress Sarah Bernhardt openly used the lipstick in public and actively advertised the cosmetic utensil.

In 1948, the lipstick finally gained its practical metal sheath with a slide mechanism and became a basic commodity. After more than 5,500 years, the application of lipstick is today the a make-up ritual that is publicly acceptable everywhere in the world according to rules of etiquette.

Lipstick – Make-up tips from Karim Sattar
What should I consider when applying lipstick?

Smile wherever possible – tightening the lips makes it easier to apply lipstick. I also recommend that you use a lip brush. This is not just for hygiene reasons and more precise application but also because the resulting colour is far more intense.

How should I choose a shade of lipstick?
The fabulous thing about Dr. Hauschka lipsticks is that they look different on different people. That means that even if your best friend is wearing the same lipstick as you, the colour will appear different. Lipsticks can therefore be freely selected to meet your taste or match accessories such as jewellery, a handbag or a scarf.

How can I achieve longer lasting lip colour?
Apply the lipliner and lipstick as usual then press a tissue between your lips. Next, use a powder pad to dab your lips with Translucent Face Powder loose then reapply the lip products.

The Damask Rose – Rosa damascena

Our Rose Essential Oil and Rose Water (Rose Hydrosol) are derived from The Damask Rose, so named after the city of Damascus in Syria. The Essential Oil from the most fragrant of roses is also known as Rose Otto (Ottoman Empire) or Attar of Rose(s).

Rosa damascena is a cultivated flower, no longer found growing wild, and the history of just where it came from is varied, but it’s generally understood as originating in the Middle East.

The Crusader Robert de Brie has been credited for bringing the Damask Rose from Syria to Europe sometime between 1254 and 1276. Other stories say the Romans brought the Damask Rose to England, and yet another account states that Henry VIII’s physician gifted him a Damask Rose around 1540.

The Apothecary’s Rose – Rosa gallica

We use Rosa gallica for Rose Wax and Rose Petal Extract.

The Apothecary’s Rose, known to botanists as Rosa gallica officinalis, is one of the most celebrated of all ancient roses.

In the Renaissance art of the 15th and 16th centuries, Rosa gallica (often depicted red, although really a deep pink) was one of the two most often painted roses, Rosa alba (white) being the other.

The petals of this rose were dried and rolled into beads, then strung into what became the rosary, hence the name.

The Apothecary’s Rose dates back much further in history than the Renaissance and is believed to have originated in ancient Persia. The rose is thought to have come to Europe either in the 12th or 13th century with knights returning from the Crusades.

By the middle of the 15th century, civil wars in medieval England had broken out in a melee of power grabs for the throne, known as the War of Roses. The Apothecary’s Rose had become the symbol of the House of Lancaster and the white Rosa alba the symbol of the House of York.  After Henry VII came to power in 1485, he chose to symbolise peace by creating a new symbol: the Apothecary’s Rose laid on top of Rosa alba, the ‘Tudor Rose’, which to this day remains the plant symbol of England.

The other story of how the Apothecary’s Rose came to Europe, the French side, is less dramatic. It is believed to have been returned to the Castle of Provins, a city close to Paris, by Thibault IV in 1250 upon his return from the Seventh Crusade. (Thibault died just three years later — apparently not because of the rose, however.) Provins became the European capital for the Apothecary’s Rose and it was renamed The Rose of Provins.

Dog Rose – Rosa canina

Our Rose Hip extract comes from Dog Rose, Rosa canina (canine).

Also known as Wild Rose, Dog Briar and Wild Briar, it has been used medicinally since the time of Hippocrates and was named Dog Rose by the Roman naturalist, Pliny, because it was believed the plant’s root would cure the bite of a mad dog.

The Dog Rose is high in antioxidants and the fruit, Rose Hips, are a rich source of Vitamin C used to make syrup, tea and jam.

Although it had been used medicinally for centuries it was during World War II that the plant came in to its own. During the war it was impossible for Great Britain to import fresh citrus fruits and without them scurvy became a threat to the population. Knowing rose hips were rich in Vitamin C the government arranged to have them harvested and processed into syrup. Because of this wise action scurvy was prevented.

Dr. Hauschka – Mum, Baby & Child

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 2.28.10 pm

During my baby building stages and for the baby/toddler early years Rose Day Cream nurtured more than just my skin. Keeping up with my daily Dr. Hauschka rituals was my special moment at the beginning and at the end of each day. When applying Rose Day Cream in the morning I would always cup the warmed cream in the palms of my hands around my nose first and take a moment to deeply smell the aromas of organic and biodynamic roses to nurture me. I also remember thinking it felt good knowing when I cuddled my babies that they were only receiving residual Rose Day Cream from my face.

Although I was already a long term Dr. Hauschka customer, this was a time that became a catalyst to change in many areas of habitual shopping. Basically getting rid of all unnecessary chemicals from us, our home, the laundry etc.

During pregnancy body care is particularly important to keep the skin supple, Dr. Hauschka Blackthorn Toning Body Oil supports the skin’s elasticity in weight loss or weigh gain and helps to prevent the appearance of stretch marks. I used Blackthorn Toning Body Oil from 25 weeks while skin was still moist after my morning shower. It’s formula is based on plant extracts, with only a minute amount of essential oils for fragrance. It did the trick! I think we forged an everlasting friendship at that time. I still reach for Blackthorn Toning Body Oil, particularly in autumn and winter when I need it strengthening more than toning effect.

Rose Nurturing Body Cream to keep skin supple, Rose Nurturing Body Oil too, it’s just a matter of personal preference or mix the Oil with the Body Cream for a more intense aromatic experience.

Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil relaxes, soothes and encourages sleep.

Rose Nurturing Bath Essence gives a Cleopatra moment, exotic and nurturing at the same time, in the bath or in your Compress & Hydrate basin water pre facial cleansing. Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence aids relaxation. Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence to refresh and revitalise.

Quince Hydrating Body Milk gives the skin a fresh, firm feeling during pregnancy, as does Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Milk.

Rapidly tiring and swelling legs in the latter stages of pregnancy gain support from Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic.

A protective cocoon for the child

Only the best is good enough for a child’s tender skin. The rich Dr.Hauschka creams and oils nurture their sensitive skin and envelop the child in a warming and protective cocoon. For the youngest, this warming protection is very important, as they can get cold quickly.

Babies really only need to be bathed in warm water and a muslin cloth; however, Dr.Hauschka Rose Nurturing Body Wash with such gentle ingredients from nature is for cleansing if needed.

Our Silk Body Powder containing real silk powder has to be the most exquisite and caring baby body powder there is! Created by combining fine Silk powder, which has anti-bacterial properties and is particularly well tolerated by baby’s skin, Rice starch, Silica and extracts of Gentian, Oak and Sage. Silk Body Powder does wonders for preventing the appearance of nappy rash. In my personal experience, Silk Body Powder was the ONLY product that worked for my daughter’s predisposition to nappy rash.

Tip:  Rose Nurturing Body Oil for gentle and caring baby massage. Just remember to wrap baby in a towel or blanket when lifting in case they’re a little slippery!

Your facial skin care during pregnancy and post natal

Your skin may go through changes as your body has to metabolise hugely increased hormone levels and for many as the baby takes so many nutrients their skin becomes incredibly dry.   Some new Mums will experience break outs, while others find their skin becomes parched dry.

After having my son my skin quite literally went to the pack. It became sore, dry, itchy – awful really. At the time I thought it was due to the fact that he was such a rapacious baby, leaving me short in skin nutrients. Remembering my knowledge, despite chronic lack of sleep and therefore brain fade, I reached for a 28 night treatment of Renewing Night Conditioner which is recommended for any times of transition and post natal certainly is that! Incredibly problem was solved within 4 nights.

Please contact us if you feel you may need to alter your usual Dr. Hauschka skin regime to address a changing skin condition.  We’re always happy to put together a recommended Product Prescription and Skin Care Regime for you.

We received the below from a Dr. Hauschka customer recently…

“I have used Dr. Hauschka for over 10 years and it’s always worked well for me. When I was expecting our first child last July I looked to see if Dr. Hauschka did a baby range (I’d never needed to look for it before) and  there isn’t. Fortunately, I found several articles with a list of the Dr. Hauschka products I could use on bub so they were placed on my gift list.

The paediatric nurse gave me a tube of D****** with steroids for baby’s face which had acne and the skin was literally peeling off, including inside and behind her ears. I decided to try the Rose Day Cream on her face. I was using it as a nappy change cream. I was concerned it would be too strong for her face but it wasn’t. To my surprise within HOURS patches of dryness had disappeared and within 3 days her skin was once again blooming. I applied it religiously at every nappy change and bub started to smile as I smeared it over her face. At our next weekly visit to the paediatric nurse she was surprised at how much her skin had improved. I told her what I had used and offered her the D****** cream back. Interestingly, the nurse also uses Dr. Hauschka so I am hopeful that she will now recommend parents try Rose Day Cream rather than administering free samples of D******. Within 2 weeks my baby’s skin was completely free of any dryness and acne and has remained so although I no longer use any cream on her skin. She has had perfect skin for 2 months. My tube of Rose Day Cream lasted for 4 months using it as a nappy change cream intermittently (perhaps 5 times per week when redness started to appear but was not sore) and a solid 2 weeks on her face and ears (6-7 times per day). I consider this very good value.

Why am I telling you all this?

Because it’s the sort of information I would have loved to read when I was pregnant and looking for a suitable baby product range. I also use the Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil in her bath. The time frame to cure dry skin, how often it is applied and the expected cost per year are all considerations. The message I have is it’s not expensive to use Rose Day Cream as your primary baby cream. It works and works quickly so little is required. And of course, the most important thing is not subjecting your bundle of joy to those nasties, particularly steroids! And of course, she smells as sweet as a rose 🙂

There’s a lot of organic alternatives out there these days and yes, I have some on my change table that were given as gifts, but I have tried them once and didn’t like the feel of them. I also noticed the redness didn’t disappear after one application, unlike when I use Rose Day Cream.”

Nappy rash problem sorted, email from another happy customer…

“Our 9 month old typically cheerful baby girl had been suffering with nappy rash. It flared up very badly and our little girl was in pain. I consulted our family doctor and was prescribed a mild hydrocortisone to be applied topped with heavy aqueous cream and then thick barrier cream. We were also advised as much ‘nappy off’ time as possible to allow the skin to dry out. The full tube of hydrocortisone was used and the rash had not gone. I was beside myself to see my baby in such pain and felt uneasy about continuing to use steroid creams on such delicate skin. Plus the concept of drying the skin out whilst glooping it in three layers of creams just wasn’t making sense. Having worked with Dr. Hauschka in the past I felt sure there would be something in the range that may help. Silk Body Powder was our saviour! I set aside all the creams and applied just this beautiful powder and the result was almost instant. It dried her skin completely and the raw skin looked immediately less red and soothed. Within a week of use with every nappy change my little girl’s skin was healed. I recommend this product 100%. It’s simply amazing.”

In pregnancy and beyond remember you also require fresh, nutritious food and get plenty of sleep while you can.

As the kids grew I kept finding new uses for Dr. Hauschka products. For minor scratches and scrapes a quick spritz of Clarifying Toner which contains anti-bacterial Echinacea and anti-inflammatory Daisy. I’m a fan of all our Bath Essences and as I used to read to the kids while they were in the bath I also enjoyed the aromatics. The odd patch of dry skin sorted with Rose Day CreamSage Purifying Bath Essence foot bath and Deodorising Foot Cream came to our aid when my daughter picked up ‘something’ on her feet after a session at the swimming pool and both kids love After Sun applied during beach holidays to keep their skin cool and soothed, the aroma is now reminiscent of holidays for them.

From left: Bronzing Powder, Eyeshadow Golden Sand, Eyeshadow Golden Earth, Volume Mascara, Novum Lipstick Miraculous Rose, Facial Toner.

Complexion

Dr. Hauschka Bronzing Powder is a true make-up artist. It doesn’t just allow you to create highlights, but also to contour your face, giving it more nuance and depth of expression. To recreate summertime on your face, pick up some Bronzing Powder with the brush and tap it gently against the back of your hand. Don’t be afraid to highlight areas where the sun kisses your face by dusting your forehead, nose, chin and cheeks with the powder. The best technique is to spread it outwards using gentle circular strokes. If you want to give your face more contour, start with the brush slightly below the cheekbone. Dr. Hauschka Bronzing Powder is also outstanding to even out colour differences in the neck area. Here you can use a gentle circular motion to blend the transition between the lower jaw and neck.”

Eyes

“For your radiant look, apply Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadow 01 (Golden Sand) to the entire upper lid and blend it gently outward toward the eyebrow. After this, use the Blender Brush to apply Eyeshadow 02 (Golden Earth) to the crease of the lid only. Sweep the brush back and forth lightly along the arc of the crease. This will give your eyes more depth. Complement the look by applying Volume Mascara in Black to the upper lashes only. This opens up your eyes.”

Lips

“With Dr. Hauschka Lipstick Novum 09 (Miraculous Rose), you give the perfect finishing touch to your fresh daytime look.”

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 11.39.17 am

Special tip:

“To achieve a long-lasting make-up look, simply spray a little Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner onto your face from a distance of approx. 30 cm and pat it in lightly.”

15 Top Foods for Healthy Skin

Screen Shot 2014-04-11 at 4.49.52 pm

Choose natural nutritious quality foods, preferably organic and as little as possible processing for a healthy skin.

1) Salmon, wild salmon and cold smoked preferably, or other oily fish. Oily fish such as salmon, trout or herring contain at least twice as many calories as white fish. They are all rich in protein, essential fatty acids and vitamins A, B12 and D. Tinned tuna retains vitamins but is low in EFA’s due to the removal of the oil.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 1.40.14 pm

2) Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are exactly that, they’re essential for good skin health, indeed good body health. Omega 3 & 6 EFAs are found in LSA – Linseed (aka Flaxseed) or LSC – Linseed (aka Flaxseed) Sunflower Seeds and Chia. EFAs are sensitive to oxygen, light and heat is detrimental to EFAs so make sure your pack has an oxygen absorber and store in the fridge. Sprinkle on your breakfast Bircher muesli or put a dessertspoon full into your breakfast smoothie along with frozen banana, frozen berries, coconut water, leafy greens and raw brown rice protein powder for a great start to the day.

Screen Shot 2014-04-11 at 4.52.19 pm

3) Walnuts contain omega-3 essential fatty acids, which can improve skin’s elasticity, they’re also a source of copper, a mineral that boosts collagen production. Almonds and Brazils are other skin favouring nuts.

4) Green Tea contains polyphenols which have anti-inflammatory properties and it also has anti-oxidant qualities.

5) Avocado is rich in B complex vitamins, potassium, anti-oxidants and good fats.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 1.27.28 pm

6) Dark Chocolate contains high levels of flavonoids, a potent type of antioxidant. Everything in moderation though!

7) Carotenoids, the antioxidants in yellow and orange fruit and veg can decrease skin’s sensitivity to the sun.

8) All foods that are rich Vitamins A, C & E – these are the skin healers, so think Carrots for pro Vitamin A, fresh seasonal fruit for Vitamin C and Wheatgerm is a rich source of Vitamin E.

 

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 12.36.59 pm

Skin Tip: Mix Rose Day Cream with a couple of drops of Clarifying Day Oil for a topical anti-oxidant rich Vitamin A, C & E blend.

9) Drink a latte with soy milk or eat edamame. Soy contains minerals and proteins that have been shown to reduce pigmentation.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 1.29.02 pm

10) Oats, the less processed the better and preferably organic. Oats are high in calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin E, B vitamins, protein and more.

11) Millet is rich in silica, which is vital for healthy skin, hair, teeth, eyes and nails.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 1.34.32 pm

12) Leafy greens. Watercress is full of vitamins A and C, kale contains a full range of vitamins A, B complex, C, E and K, as well as potent levels of manganese, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, protein, folate and phosphorus. Green smoothies are an excellent way to increase your green uptake.

13) Beetroot are particularly high in vitamin A, as well as potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin E, which is essential for epidermal health and healing. Combined, these nutrients make a powerful all-round body cleanser, helping to eliminate toxins from the body.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 1.37.38 pm

14) Steady blood sugar levels and skin health may be linked. Opt for brown, wholegrain, low GI foods like brown rice. A portion a day not only provides a rich source of B vitamins, protein, selenium and magnesium, as well as several antioxidants.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 1.31.12 pm

15) All berries are anti-oxidant packed.

Top 10 Women’s Colors

Whether it was a particular decade or a trip to a special place, designers are fascinated with the beauty of the past and the spirit of the present—recreating it with colour, fabric and style this fall season. Design and colour were inspired by everything from books, artisan crafts, photography and retro architecture, to exotic landscapes and the children of rock legends. The diverse colour palette takes us on an adventure spanning 100 years—a season roused by various vantage points from past and present.

“This is a season of untypical colours—more reflective of the imagination and ingenuity, which makes for an artful collection of colours and combinations not bound by the usual hues for fall,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute®. “There is a feminine mystique that is reflected throughout the palette, inspired by the increasing need for women everywhere to create an individual imprint.”

Sangria, an exotic red that evokes a sense of glamorous adventures and faraway destinations is enhanced by Aurora Red, a more sophisticated shade that adds verve and spark.
The grown-up reds are followed by two extremes of the purple family that intrigue the eye and inspire the imagination. Mauve Mist, a romantic and elegant purple shade, reminds us of the deco era and stimulates a sense of femininity and empowerment, while Radiant Orchid, a captivating and adaptable shade, enchants the complete spectrum. Pair either with Cypress, a majestic and powerful green; indicative of its name, this shade has a towering presence and serves as a stunning perennial.

With its slightly green undertone, Bright Cobalt offers a subtle twist on the traditional cobalt blue, which unifies this season’s blues. Likewise, Royal Blue, which is both evocative and dignified, provides more complexity and excitement than the average navy, while still remaining versatile. Pair Bright Cobalt with Sangria and Cypress, or Royal Blue with Mauve Mist and Aluminium, a futuristic stainless steel shade that serves as a complex neutral.
Similar to Sangria, Cognac’s name alone leads to glamorous illusions. This classy and cultured brown takes a typical autumnal colour to a sumptuous realm, making the shade unexpectedly ideal for evening wear. Adding a ray of sunlight and warmth, optimistic Misted Yellow alludes to the promise of spring to come. Both Cognac and Misted Yellow will also be prevalent in prints—a surprisingly popular trend this autumn season.
