During menopause skin is likely to experience changes. Hot flushes may be so problematic that using warming Rose products such as Rose Day Cream and/or Firming Mask may no longer be appropriate for this stage. Products with cooling properties or don’t specifically warm your skin are:
Regenerating Serum & Regenerating Day Cream
Quince Day Cream
Moisturising Day Cream
Toned Day Cream – the original BB cream – is a great alternative too. As we age our skin becomes a little pallid, so Toned Day Cream puts the warm tones back into your skin, helps to even skin tone and provides plenty of moisture.
Some women experience severe break-outs for the first time in their life during menopause. So skin care needs to change to reflect this. Cover Stick is a must product for treating and healing any pimples as quickly as possible. Rejuvenating Mask is also highly recommended twice weekly. If you’ve been using Moisturising Day Cream, you may find this product too active for your sebaceous glands during this time of transition.
Other women experience extreme dryness (lack of oil) and/or dehydration (lack of water). Use Moisturising Mask twice weekly for a boost. You may also use Moisturising Mask as your daily moisturiser until condition improves. We also recommend light Moisturising Day Cream to activate a dry skin to produce more oil. Hydration plumps the skin so drinking your 6-8 glasses of water a day is extremely important.
Include specific support for your skin with Intensive Treatment 05 for Menopausal Skin.
Intensive Treatment 05 for Menopausal Skin
Specialised care for skin during menopause
Please note: change of name soon to Intensive Treatment for Menopausal Skin
Dr. Hauschka Intensive Treatments are formulated for skin that has lost its natural balance and requires focused care. Intensive Treatment for Menopausal Skin balances hormonally related skin changes while supporting your skin’s natural processes of renewal. The appearance of blotchiness and spots is diminished for a calm, even complexion.
Formulation: Rhythmitised dilutions of Daisy and Rose work with gemstones Argentite, Ruby powder and Black Cohosh to revitalise dull, lifeless skin and reduce the appearance of redness and irregular pigmentation.
Black Cohosh is well known for its use during menopause. Its rhizomes survive the winter, and it is these life-bearing rootstocks that are processed. They are much appreciated in particular during the phase of change surrounding the menopause. The Black Cohosh extract in Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products is prepared using our own special rhythmic process.
Rubies are red gemstones, so fitting with our homeopathic guidelines of like treats like, red treats redness. Ruby has a harmonising effect on the skin helping to reduce the appearance of redness and blotchiness. Rubies are one of the oldest traditional healing stones.
Argentite is a bluish-grey-to-black silver mineral with a metallic sheen. In combination with the other ingredients in Intensive Treatment 05, Argentite supports the skin’s own processes of renewal.
Skin cells are renewed every 28 days. Mirroring this same regenerative cycle, Intensive Treatments should be used as a 28 day entire treatment in the one bottle, to be used instead of a Toner. Intensive Treatments work most effectively when used four times a year as a stimulus. After morning and evening cleansing, mist 4-5 pumps onto the face, neck and décolleté then gently press into the skin.
