Winter Skin Tips

Screen Shot 2016-04-06 at 4.58.42 PM

Dryness and dehydration are prime reasons for premature wrinkles so it’s imperative we protect our skin from these conditions, and during winter we need to be particularly vigilant, as outdoor weather is drying and indoor heating is dehydrating.

So what’s the solution to winter dryness and dehydration?

Hydrating Mask is Dr. Hauschka’s ultimate winter skin fix, twice a week, cleanse early in the evening and apply the mask, also include eye contour area, and leave on to absorb all evening, removing with a moist, tepid cloth before bed. You’ll love how your skin feels in the morning!

TIP: If your skin is extremely dry/dehydrated you may also use Hydrating Mask as your ‘day moisturiser’ for a month long boost or until condition improves.

Hydrating Mask’s super rich 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 

– Rose Wax and organic Shea Butter soothe and protect

Rose Day Cream contains Shea Butter, Beeswax and precious Rose Wax to protect your skin from outside elements and indoor heating. Precious extracts of Rose Petals and Wild Rose Hips help to balance and harmonise your skin, softening Marsh Mallow, calming St. John’s wort and nourishing Avocado Oil for winter care. Rose is a warming ingredient. 

Quince Day Cream contains Quince Seed extract which helps your skin to retain moisture, while Quince Wax is protective against the environment. Quince is a cooling ingredient, however, that’s fine for some parts of the country.

TIP: Winter Mask Blend Treatment:

Firming, Moisturising and Hydrating Mask Blend, for a dry and/or dehydrated skin that also needs firming…

  1. Cleanse early in the evening
  2. Apply a generous amount of Regenerating Serum including eye contour area as an ‘eye mask’ as well
  3. Then apply Hydrating Mask over Regenerating Serum, including eye contour area
  4. Leave to absorb all evening, removing with a warm, moist cloth just before bedtime

If your skin is dry, red, irritated, itchy or flaky in winter, choose Soothing Mask instead of Hydrating Mask to strengthen and restore a sensitive skin. Regenerating Serum is also formulated for a sensitive skin.

Body Moisturising

Dr. Hauschka Body Oils are applied to skin still moist from shower or bath, making a water/oil emulsion directly on your skin for rapid absorption and economical use. 

Winter is a hibernating time according to the rhythm of nature. We can’t exactly hibernate, but we can sustain ourselves with warming Body Oils such as Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil which is also very protective and aids with stress, Blackthorn Toning Body Oil which is also strengthening and just feels good at this time of year, or warming Rose Nurturing Body Oil.
