Summer Solutions for Feet and Legs

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Put the spring back in your step

Your feet bear your body weight while your toes balance your body in an act of the utmost precision. It is no wonder that they make themselves felt now and again. If we spend a lot of time on our feet, our feet and legs become tired and may also swell. If this is aggravated by incorrectly fitting shoes we may also suffer from blisters, pressure points, calluses or aching legs. Hot weather also puts a strain on our feet and legs. It’s really important to pamper your feet and legs with supportive skin care, something much more than just moisturising.

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Hydrating Foot Cream for dry feet and Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic revive tired feet and legs and help work to prevent swelling. With real Silk Powder, Deodorising Foot Cream helps control excess perspiration keeping feet dry, comfortable and fresh through the day. Rosemary and Sage combine to revitalise, you’ll be walking on clouds. Silk Body Powder leaves feet feeling truly refreshed. Both products have a deodorising effect and minimise foot odour.

Tip: Sprinkle a little Silk Body Powder in your shoes to keep them smelling fresh.

Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence and Sage Purifying Bath Essence are both ideal foot baths. Amazing what a 10 minute foot bath with a refreshing Bath Essence will do.

Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic invigorates, energises and tones the skin. It soothes and minimises water-retention (swelling) and tired legs arms and legs regain a sense of lightness. Rosemary essential oil energises and supports circulation. Borage helps reduce the appearance of varicose veins and cellulite. After a long day of sitting or standing, Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic refreshes and energises limbs for continued activity.

Tips:

For dry skin, blend Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic with your favourite Dr. Hauschka Body Oil, Body Milk or Body Cream.

Use Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic as a 3pm pick-me-up, works a treat! Decant some into an old Toner bottle and keep in your desk drawer.

Lastly, for toenail care, use Neem Nail & Cuticle Pen or Neem Nail & Cuticle Oil 30ml.

Happy Customer

“I spend my days either walking around in heels or in bare feet and as a result my feet are either sore and tired or dry and cracked. I’m not kind to my feet, which is probably why I love the Hydrating Foot Cream. I put it on at night and not only do my feet feel cool and soothed by the next morning the cracks are gone and they’re lovely and soft. I gave this product to my Dad who had horrible cracks in his feet that really hurt. After five days he called and asked what on earth was in the Hydrating Foot Cream as the cracks had almost gone and his feet felt better than they had in ages. We both still use it and it is one of the products I recommend to everyone.”

Vibrant Summer Days

Refreshing Dr. Hauschka Body Care

Sommertage voller Lebendigkeit

Feel light and refreshed during the warmer months of the year with Dr. Hauschka Body Care. Favourites for this time of year are Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Wash, Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body MilkRevitalising Leg & Arm Tonic and After Sun.

Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Wash: energising way to begin the day.

Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Wash has a wonderfully revitalising zesty scent that adds a spring to your step. The creamy lather gently cleanses the skin, restoring its natural balance with valuable plant oils and quince seed extract – even if you shower frequently. The Body Wash is pH neutral and exceptionally mild so as not to dry out the skin.

Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic: light legs for summer.

Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic is an activating skin care product for combating heat-induced heavy legs, for anyone that stands or sits for prolonged periods or during the latter stages of pregnancy. The composition with borage, rosemary and castor oil revives the legs while preventing the skin from dryness.

TIP: Keep some Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic in your desk and use as a 3pm pick-me-up. Energising and invigorating.

Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Milk: fresh energy for an active day.

The light Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Milk with a zesty, clear scent invigorates and energises you, leaving you feeling wonderfully refreshed. It contains sunflower oil, structure-giving lemon oil and extracts of quince seed, lemongrass and field horsetail. It is quickly absorbed, offers blissful hydration and nourishes and tones the skin.

After Sun: hydrates and cools after a day in the sun.

When sunbathing has left your skin tired and irritated, the soothing and cooling After Sun lotion is the perfect choice. The rich yet light formulation with quince seeds, shea butter, rose hip and ice plant helps the skin restore its natural balance and breathe freely – for a beautiful, long-lasting tan. For an extra dose of care for stressed areas, a cool compress can be applied after the lotion.

In need of a little refreshment?

Kleine Erfrischung gefällig?

A cool foot bath relaxes heavy legs after a long summer’s day. Our Dr. Hauschka Estheticians recommend adding a little Dr. Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence or Sage Purifying Bath Essence.

Beat the Heat Make-up Tips

Always cleanse, tone and moisturise before applying makeup. You may wish to use a matte moisturiser such as Rose Day Cream Light or if you have a combination oily T-zone skin then use Melissa Day Cream. If you have a dry/dehydrated skin that needs a moisturiser that’s activating yet very light in texture for summer time, then use Revitalising Day Cream. Leave your moisturiser to absorb fully prior to make-up application.

For a long-lasting make-up in hot weather our International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar, recommends this technique…

1) Apply Colour Correcting Powder, Loose Powder or Compact Powder first.

Our Powders and Foundation blend together beautifully. Dr. Hauschka 100% natural make-up is free from silicones, so you won’t get a patchy look.

2) You now have a matte base to apply your Foundation.

3) Apply Colour Correcting Powder, Loose Powder or Compact Powder again to set make-up.

4) Apply Blush and/or Bronzer.

5) Mist your make-up with Toner.

 

Multi-tasking product TIP
At the moment I’m loving Blush Duo 03 sun-kissed nectarine for both cheeks and eyes.

 

HOT TIPS for a long-lasting eye liner and brows

1) Moisten an angled brush with Toner.

2) Pick up colour with your brush from just the one corner of the darkest shade of your Eyeshadow Palette or Trio.

3) With your brush apply a line to the lower lash line from outer to inner, starting a little further out than the outer edge of your eye.

4) You’ll need to pick up more colour with your brush, then apply to the upper lash line from the outer to the inner and beginning from the extended colour from your lower lash line so the two meet.

5) Define your brows with the residual colour left on the brush and set with Brow & Lash Gel.

If you prefer a more defined upper lash line that will also stay the distance.

 

Apply Eyeshadow for a matte start, then Eye Definer Pencil and set with Eyeshadow over the top. Alternatively use Liquid Eyeliner.

Long-lasting lipstick

1) Apply Blush to your lips first, which provides a matte base.

2) Use Lip Liner over the entire lip area rather than an outline.

3) Apply your favourite Lipstick, ‘kiss’ a tissue to remove excess, and re-apply.

7 Simple and Effective Beauty Resolutions

1) Drink warm water and lemon juice first thing every morning

Helps keep your skin looking clear and your eyes bright, add some organic apple cider vinegar as well. Aids hydration and digestion and helps flush toxins from the body.

Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water or herbal teas daily to keep your skin plump and hydrated.

2) Compress and Hydrate

Compress and hydrate your skin prior to cleansing with Organic Cotton Compress. This softens pores enabling a much deeper cleanse, and you’ll use your Cleansing Cream and Soothing Cleansing Milk more economically as well on hydrated skin.

Remember to complete your cleanse with 2-3 cold water splashes or a cold compress. This simple technique activates a tiny muscle beside the hair follicle ensuring any remaining dirt is washed away and your skin will reward you by feeling silky soft without harsh exfoliation.

It really is worth that extra 2 minutes, try it out for a month (skin cell cycle) and see how your skin feels and looks.

How to Compress & Hydrate video.

3) Get a good night’s sleep.

It really is beauty sleep. Try to go to bed and get up at the same time each day to support your body’s rhythms.

Use botanical actives in an oil-free formulation for your night care. Night Serum benefits all skin conditions, wake up to refreshed skin or Regenerating Serum in support of a maturing skin.

No night cream, which impedes your skin’s natural elimination and regeneration phase.

4) Incorporate relaxation and self care into your life.

Make little changes, dance or do yoga in your living room instead of watching TV. Lose yourself in a good book, a recent study found reading reduced stress by a whopping 68% and listening to music 61%.

Have a regular Dr. Hauschka Facial Treatment with a Dr. Hauschka trained Esthetician. Time seems to stand still while you immerse yourself in this ‘so much more than a facial’ treatment. Your skin looks radiant, you’re feeling calm, deeply relaxed with a sense of lightness and inner balance.

5) Go for a walk

Walk, jog or cycle every morning for 30 minutes. If you have a friend that could join in, all the better, you’ll encourage each other.

Benefits: fresh morning air, movement supports your lymph system therefore your immune system, uplifts your mood, clears your mind, increases blood circulation and oxygenation, strengthens bones and muscles, increases metabolism, increases energy levels…

6) Mask treatments

into your skin care regime to really make a difference.

Clarifying Steam Bath and Cleansing Clay Mask – Once a week deep cleanse and gentle exfoliation, follow with a Cream Mask. Then on another evening during the week, after cleansing and toning, apply Cream Mask.

Cream Masks
Revitalising Mask – our top selling mask that benefits all skin conditions, refines pores and skin looks even toned, rejuvenating, soothing and cooling for sensitivities, our ‘go-to’ mask the night before a special event and also highly recommended for post holiday sun-stressed skin.
Hydrating Mask – For soft, plumped skin treating any dryness or dehydration.
Soothing Mask – Strengthens a sensitive, red, irritated, stressed skin, also recommended for rosacea to use as a day cream as well as a mask.
Firming Mask – a warming mask using all forms of the rose, to firm and tone, to support a maturing skin.

7) Invest in a quality set of brushes

A must-have for professional application. A beautifully blended eyeshadow look comes from quality brushes and Foundation takes on an air brushed look with Foundation Brush blending application.

Look after your brushes and wash them weekly with an eco friendly gentle hand wash liquid. Always dry your brushes laying flat, preferably in sunlight, you don’t want any moisture or soap getting into the head of the brush as it will compromise the glue.

Almond

Almond Oil key ingredient (1) 2016

Our ingredients

Each and every one of the ingredients in our products contributes to their overall effect. Careful thought goes into the selection and sourcing of the raw materials as well as the way in which the individual ingredients are combined to form complete Dr. Hauschka products. We also adhere to the highest quality standards.

This tells you more about the individual ingredient, Almond. Where Almond comes from, why we use it and what functions it performs in our products.

Tinted Day Cream

Almond oil supplements the rich Tinted Day Cream formulation and additional raw materials round off the overall composition. With valuable avocado and almond oils, protective rose wax and quince seeds, Tinted Day Cream sustainably prevents skin dryness.

Why is almond oil used as an ingredient in Dr. Hauschka products?

The almond oil pressed from the seeds is a mild and highly lipogenous skin care oil. It is well absorbed by the skin, leaving it silky soft and smooth. The vitamin-rich almond oil is also extremely well tolerated by the skin. As the almond oil regulates moisture levels, it can be used for both dry and oily skin. It even optimally nourishes sensitive skin. Almond oil enhances the skin’s elasticity for toned, radiant results.

Almond-Profile-large

Plant profile

All sorts of things come to mind when we think of almonds; marzipan and macaroons, for example. Or maybe snacks of nuts and raisins or breakfast mueslis. But whatever the context, what we picture in our mind’s eye is the edible almond kernel. But what about the plant that goes with it? The up to 8-metre high, frost-sensitive almond tree with its grey bark belongs to the rose family and is also closely related to the cherry, peach and apricot. We can see this relationship when we look at the pink flowers with yellow stamens. The almond kernel we eat is actually the almond seed which is inside the hard shell or pit. The robust pit is enclosed in the dry, green, bitter and inedible fruit.

Almond Oil key ingredient (2) 2016

Origin, cultivation and processing

The almond tree comes from subtropical China and Asia Minor and is a member of the Rosaceae (rose) family. It was natively found in Central and Western Asia but is today mainly grown in the Mediterranean and California.

Almond-Profile-nut

We use organically certified almonds from Alicante and Albacete in Spain. We also predominantly acquire almonds cultivated using Demeter farming. These are only of the best, edible quality and ready for the oil to be carefully pressed out of them at body temperature for use in our products. Every year, almost 46 tonnes of almonds are processed for our products.

A traditional, artisanal oil mill in the Black Forest carefully presses the almonds at body temperature.

Almond-TopImage
Almonds already grew naturally in the Stone Age and their cultivation is thought to go back to the Bronze Age.

Almond-Slider-04
The almond is probably the oldest cultivated fruit of the the Old World, with a success story that continues right up to the present day.

Almond-Slider-03
In Mediterranean countries, the almond tree is seen as a symbol of vigilance and rebirth because it blossoms early.

In 2014/2015 over 1 million tonnes of almonds were produced globally.

prunus-dulcis-mill

Almond Tree
Synonyms: Sweet Almond
Scientific Name: Prunus dulcis (Mill.)
Family: Rosaceae (Rose Family)

Constituents: 54% fatty oil containing oleic acid, linoleic acid and palmitic acid, protein, enzymes.

Mild almond oil has a good slip and glide and is taken up slowly by the skin. The oil is the conditioning base of Dr.Hauschka After Sun, Concealer, Daily Hydrating Eye Cream, Quince Day Cream, Revitalising Day Cream, Cleansing Cream, Clarifying Day Oil, Hydrating Hand Cream, Lip Care Stick, Lipsticks, Soothing Cleansing Milk, Rose Nurturing Body Cream, Almond Soothing Body Cream, Rose Day Cream Light, Regenerating Day Cream, Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream, Regenerating Body Cream, Firming Mask, Tinted Day Cream and Almond St. John’s Wort Soothing Body Oil. In Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream almond meal binds particularly well to dirt particles and thus gently cleanses the skin.

Almond Soothing Body Wash, Almond Soothing Body Cream, Almond Soothing Bath Essence, Almond St. John’s Wort Soothing Body Oil and iconic Cleansing Cream are some of the examples of products which include almond oil.
