Hot weather – sun, wind, salt, air conditioning and humidity!
1) Dry, flaky skin
Inadequate hydration, dehydrating air conditioning and too much sun are drying to your skin and may result in dry, rough, flaky skin. Remember to drink a minimum of 6-8 glasses of water a day to hydrate from within.
Remember you may need to change your Dr. Hauschka Moisturiser for the seasons to ensure optimum care.
Skin Tip: Always apply your body moisturiser to skin that’s still moist from your shower, this helps to lock in moisture. You’ll be applying your face Moisturiser on skin still moist from Toner, however, in warm weather keep a bottle handy to mist Toner during the day as well.
2) Sun-stressed skin
Revitalising Mask is a must for a sun-stressed skin, cooling and soothing, use twice a week.
Cleanse early in the evening, apply Revitalising Mask, including the eye contour area, and leave to absorb for as long as possible, removing with a tepid cloth prior to bed time.
After Sun is our ‘go-to’ body product for it’s anti-oxidants, cooling and soothing Ice Plant extract, and long lasting moisture.
Think floppy hats, maxi dresses and skirts, pretty tops, floaty palazzo pants and of course always sunnies.

5) Fine lines and wrinkles
These occur due to the age-triggered loss of collagen and elastin from skin, but exposure to sun and dry winds, resulting in dry skin, is likely to accelerate the process. Foods and skin care high in antioxidants helps to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature ageing, so ensure you’re getting your Vitamins A, C and E.
Regenerating Range is specifically formulated to support a maturing skin.
6) Dull Skin
For a dull, dry skin use Revitalising Day Cream, our lightest in texture moisturiser, yet also our most activating. Apply Tinted Day Cream over the top to bring back warm tones to the skin and double the moisturising.

Q: Help! My skin is breaking out with this weather, make-up is disappearing from now oily t-zone by lunchtime. Using Rose Day Cream and in my late 30’s.
A: Rose Day Cream is too rich for you at this time of year. Here’s your recommended daily regime for summer:
Melissa Day Cream – specific for mediating between oily and normal (or dry) areas of your face, helps to control shine, and has a matte finish. Another alternative would be Rose Day Cream Light.
Coverstick – a must have product, conceals and treats pimples
You may like to try mixing a little Translucent Bronzing Tint with your Melissa Day Cream as a tinted moisturiser instead of make-up or Foundation and set with Translucent Powder Loose in the morning, and during the day touch-up with Translucent Powder Compact.
8) Sun-Stressed Tresses
Hair can suffer from overexposure to sun, sea, chlorine, heat and warm winds, making it dry and prone to breakage. Limit use of the blow drier, hair straighteners and curling tongs and don’t shampoo every day if you don’t need to. Use Hair Strengthening Treatment as a treatment for hair and scalp and/or scrunch into the ends, and use daily Revitalising Hair & Scalp Tonic.
