Which Moisturiser is the best choice for you?

Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 10.18.45 AM

All our Moisturisers, including Clarifying Day Oil, are highly concentrated, for example Rose Day Cream contains 30 organic or biodynamic Roses! They’re designed to be applied as follows:

  1. Warm around a large pea size amount of Moisturiser (3-4 drops of Clarifying Day Oil) between the palms of the hands to melt the oils and waxes.
  2. Apply using the palms of both hands to skin still moist from Toner which locks in hydration, aids absorption of botanical actives and ensures even and economical application.

Applying our homeopathic knowledge of ‘like treats like’ we recommend an oil for an oily skin. It may seem counter-intuitive however, harsh products just ‘strip’ the skin creating imbalance and the skin produces more oil to compensate whereas Clarifying Day Oil calms and relaxes the skin.

If you get pimples then definitely add Coverstick into your morning regime, to treat and conceal with just the right amount of tea tree and manuka for their anti-bacterial properties, and tapioca starch which absorbs. Amazing product!

If Foundation is too rich for your skin then mix a little Translucent Bronzing Tint with your Clarifying Day Oil.

Please noteClarifying Day Oil may also be used as an Oil ‘serum’ by mixing a drop or two with Rose Day Cream for additional protection against the environment and an anti-oxidant boost for any skin condition.

Teenage Skin

Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 11.30.46 am

The most important aspect of a teenager’s skin is they learn to use the highest quality natural and organic products and daily rituals right from the get go.

We are often asked by our Mum customers when they should start their children on a skin care regime.

In our experience if your child is experiencing skin issues as young as 10, then that’s the time to start. The onset of puberty, which is often younger these days, is likely to bring about pimples. Often we have found simply by incorporating Cleansing Cream use for morning and evening cleansing will do the trick and clear their skin.

Sometimes there is the need to also incorporate Clarifying Toner, and possibly Clarifying Day Oil if oiliness is a problem.

Coverstick is a must for pimples! The quicker a pimple is healed the less likelihood of lifetime scarring.

As children grow into the teenage years bear in mind conventional foundation is usually occlusive and/or comedogenic to the skin. Concentrated Translucent Bronzing Tint mixed with Clarifying Day Oil (or Melissa Day Cream or Rose Day Cream Light) helps to even skin tone. When the time comes for make-up look to Dr. Hauschka Foundation.

Clarifying Day Oil is a lightweight, rapidly absorbed oil, that helps to calm, balance and regulate oily skin. Yes, oil for an oily skin! It may seem counter intuitive at first, but just give the skin a chance to regulate and balance on our skin care regime.

Melissa Day Cream is a matte textured, specific product for a combination (oily t-zone {forehead, nose, chin} dry/normal cheeks). Melissa (medicinal herb Lemon Balm) mediates between oily and dry/normal areas. The aroma is uplifting, and oily shine is controlled.

Rose Day Cream Light is a second generation product. Our Mum customers using Rose Day Cream asked us to develop a lighter Rose product for their daughters. It’s also matte in texture.

Recommended Daily Skin Care Rituals

Morning:

  1. Compress & Hydrate your skin using Sage Purifying Bath Essence in your basin water
  2. Cleansing Cream – mix with a little water into a paste and ‘press & roll’
  3. Clarifying Facial Toner – close eyes and mist directly onto your skin
  4. Clarifying Day Oil – if skin is oily, warm 2-5 drops and press into skin that’s still moist from your Toner, alternatively Melissa Day Cream or Rose Day Cream Light
  5. If you have pimples apply Coverstick, our incredibly effective conceal and treat pimple zapping product.

Evening:

Initially and prior to using make-up just use: Cleansing Cream to start with and you may wish to include Clarifying Toner

Once make-up is being used:

  1. Soothing Cleansing Milk – to remove the dirt and dust your skin picks up during the day and to remove make-up and eye make-up
  2. You may still wish to do a secondary deeper cleanse with Cleansing Cream
  3. Clarifying Toner – close eyes and mist directly onto skin
  4. You may wish to use Night Serum which aids the night time processes of your skin, but never use a night cream, which is occlusive to the skin during your skin’s elimination phase overnight

Pimples

Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 9.44.00 am

The 7 main causes of pimples

  1. Hormones: puberty, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, menopause, stress
  2. Excess Sebum
  3. Genetics
  4. Bacteria and inflammation
  5. Some foods such as chocolate
  6. Some medications
  7. ‘Cosmetic acne’, comedogenic products

Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 9.43.15 am

What to do

  1. Drink warm water and lemon juice first thing in the morning, every morning, to help keep your skin clear.
  2. Ensure make-up brushes are kept scrupulously clean, same with your Compress Cloth, flannel and/or Cleansing Sponge and even your pillow slip.
  3. For guys place your razor in a cup of boiling water before each use to sterilise, allow to cool prior to shaving. Avoid multi-blade razors and go for the old fashioned single blade safety razor, avoid foaming supermarket type shaving products and use a natural shaving soap with a shaving brush instead.
  4. Avoid touching your face at all costs!
  5. If you know chocolate causes you to break out, then avoid it.
  6. Don’t use overly alkaline, lathering, harsh exfoliants (beads, AHAs or BHAs), these ‘strip’ the skin and your skin will respond by producing more oil to compensate.
  7. Dr. Hauschka’s night time stance is to support the skin during its night time elimination activity. We do this by using botanical extracts in water based products. Never use night cream.
  8. Do treat your skin with gentle and effective cleansing products, ‘correct cleansing’ is the first step towards healthy skin.

Compress and hydrate your skin, to soften the pores for a deeper cleanse. Use Sage Purifying Bath Essence in your basin water. Complete cleanse with a splash or compress of cold water. This simple technique contracts a minute muscle beside the hair follicle helping to remove any remaining dirt. Keeps your skin feeling soft too, without harsh exfoliation.

Use Cleansing Cream in the morning with our ‘press & roll’ technique, Soothing Cleansing Milk in the evening to remove the day’s dirt and dust, makeup and eye makeup. You may wish to do a secondary cleanse with Cleansing Cream in the evening as well.

Day Care:

After cleansing with Cleansing Cream and toning with Clarifying Toner, which contains daisy (anti-inflammatory), echinacea (anti-bacterial) and nasturtium to guide the skin to a state of balance then choose your day care.

Clarifying Day Oil, yes an oil for an oily skin which may seem counter intuitive, however, we’re incorporating homeopathic guidelines into our skin care regime, and this product aids in regulating oil production.

or

Melissa Day Cream is a specialist product specific for a Combination Skin, oily t-zone, dry/normal cheeks. The medicinal herb Melissa (Lemon Balm) mediates between oily and dry areas, helping to control shine in oily areas, and with a matte finish.

Any skin condition with pimples

In your weekly skin care regime once a week do Clarifying Steam Bath and Clarifying Clay Mask to draw impurities from your skin and follow up with Revitalising Mask which we recommend to help regenerate from new scarring, to refine pores and to aid in healing. Do another  Revitalising Mask treatment on another night during the week.

Take advice on the moisturiser you’re using. For instance Revitalising Day Cream stimulates sebaceous activity, it may be adviseable to change to Rose Day Cream or Rose Day Cream Light.

Number 1 priority has to be Dr. Hauschka Coverstick which is an amazing treat and conceal product with just the right amount of tea tree and manuka for their anti-bacterial properties and tapioca starch to absorb from the pimple. Apply the minute you see a pimple in the morning, reapply during the day if you wish. Remember the quicker a pimple is healed the less likelihood of life long scarring.

Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 9.43.31 am

For makeup we recommend staying clear from occlusive, petrochemical based products. Instead use Translucent Bronzing Tint and mix with your Clarifying Day Oil and/or Melissa Day Cream for a tinted moisturiser, or use Dr. Hauschka Foundation, setting with our Translucent Powder.

For a 28-30 day intensive treatment we recommend Clarifying Intensive Treatment <25 or Clarifying Intensive Treatment >25.

The Only Ingredients Your Skin Needs

Screen Shot 2015-04-07 at 1.37.25 pm

The experts at Dr. Hauschka Skin Care understand your skin. We know both what it needs and doesn’t need for a healthy, radiant appearance.

What your skin needs

  • Since 1967, we have been crafting natural and organic skin care products and we have identified over one hundred highly potent plants that guide your skin to a balanced state.
  • We know exactly which botanicals and combinations of botanicals will best deliver the visible transformation you’re looking to see.
  • Every ingredient that goes into a Dr. Hauschka Skin Care product has an important job to do. Whether delivering essential moisture, encouraging resilience or improving efficacy, each ingredient is carefully selected for its particular effects and its interaction with the whole composition.
  • We only include the ingredients you need for long-lasting skin health and beauty and we only include fragrance from pure botanical essential oils to stimulate your senses and inspire feelings that uplift, relax or energise.

What Your Skin Doesn’t Need

  • Filler ingredients that serve no purpose to your skin
  • Harsh abrasives and “quick fixes” that disrupt your skin’s natural processes
  • Harsh, overly alkaline or lathering cleansers
  • Synthetic chemical ingredients

Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 2.41.14 pm

The Importance Of Using Natural Beauty Products

Our skin is the largest organ in our body, it’s semi-permeable and therefore absorbs many product ingredients to the tiny blood vessels below the skin and then into the bloodstream.
On a daily basis, we apply face skin care, deodorant, body moisturiser, tanning products, sun protection, hair care including styling products, make-up and that’s just the morning routine. It’s not difficult to use up to 20 products daily!

  • Synthetic, man-made chemical products are essentially foreign bodies to the skin and, therefore, are over time stressors to the skin.
  • For our health and well-being, all products we place on the skin should be made from the highest quality natural, biodynamic and organic ingredients.
  • What you put on your skin affects both the health of your skin and your body.
  • Knowing this, you would want to use only the highest quality ingredients from nature.
  • The finest natural and organic ingredients support healthy and balanced skin function and a healthy skin doesn’t suffer from premature ageing either.

The ingredients you put on your skin, face and body, do matter

We know to feed our body nutritious, and wherever possible, organic food and it’s the same for your skin care, we’ve transformed nature’s ingredients to make natural and organic skin care convenient and easy to use – ingredients that your skin understands.

Dr. Hauschka Biodynamic Medicinal Plant Garden
Dr. Hauschka Biodynamic Medicinal Plant Garden

Unique in skin care philosophy

At Dr. Hauschka, we have a medicinal background since 1935 with anthroposophical homeopathic remedies and many of these guidelines and of course medicinal knowledge goes into crafting our skin care.

If you have an oily skin you may be tempted to use harsh cleansing products that ‘strip’ the skin, this just results in your skin producing more oil to compensate. Clarifying Day Oil is a lightweight, rapidly absorbed oil, that helps to calm, balance and regulate oily skin. Yes, oil for an oily skin!

We’re absolutely against the use of night creams. During the night your skin regenerates and eliminates, and heavy, occlusive night creams impede this natural process of the skin. Sleeping isn’t ageing. Creams should only be used to protect and nourish your skin during the day time. Use of eye cream at night usually causes puffy eyes in the morning. For night time we use botanical extracts in a watery solution. One month of no night cream and you will see the difference!

Also we understand your skin has differing cleansing needs at each end of the day, therefore we have different morning and evening cleansing products that are both effective and gentle to your skin. Our morning cleanser is a deep cleansing almond meal preparation due to the overnight elimination activity of your skin while cleansing in the evening is to clean the dirt and dust your skin picks up during the day and to remove make-up and eye make-up.

Regenerating Range to support a maturing skin

How do you know authentic natural and organic ingredients in the total formulation?

What percentage of the ingredients in natural cosmetics are organic? What are the minimum standards and the maximum values? Furthermore: how can you describe the high quality of a product other than through its material properties – its finely tuned composition, its more than biochemical effect?

Our entire skin care and make-up is certified with the BDIH seal for ‘certified natural cosmetics’ and/or the international quality seal for natural and organic cosmetics ‘NATRUE’. The NATRUE standard distinguishes between natural cosmetics, natural cosmetics with at least 70% organic ingredients and natural cosmetics with at least 95% organic ingredients. The term ‘natural skin care’ alone is neither legally protected nor defined on a binding basis. At NATRUE you can find the certifications given to each individual Dr. Hauschka product. Look for the NATRUE label for a guarantee that products are as natural as can be! This provides consumer transparency and it’s our guarantee our products are free from synthetic chemical fragrances, colours and preservatives, mineral oils, petrochemicals, parabens, silicones and PEG.

Our preference is for biodynamic/Demeter certified, organic or responsibly wild harvested ingredients. If an organic version of a raw material is not yet available on the global market, we initiate organic or biodynamic growing projects.

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 11.21.42 am

There is more to quality than good raw materials

Our recipes depend on the highest quality natural and organic raw materials – but also on the care with which they were grown and processed. By using Demeter farming, we gain medicinal plant extracts that are high in vitality to pass onto your skin.

Who knew? The Beauty Benefits of Toner

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 11.12.02 am

Dr. Hauschka Toners are the hidden gems of our skin care regime. Yes, we know they’re often skipped for one reason or another, and they may not be considered as imperative in your morning and evening skin care rituals, however, Dr. Hauschka Toners are not like conventional toners that are used with cotton pads to remove last traces of make-up and cleanser. Just close your eyes and mist directly onto your skin.

8 Reasons Why You Should Be Including Dr. Hauschka Toner In Your Skin Care Rituals

1) Our Toners are packed with botanical actives to benefit your skin, to regulate and keep it healthy, to refine and calm your skin.

2) Toner is the first step to hydrating your skin, helping your skin to maintain elasticity.

3) Toner aids absorption of your Moisturiser in the morning.

4) Toner is also your night-time treatment product and aids absorption of Night Serum or Regenerating Serum.

5) Toner ensures our highly concentrated Moisturisers (or Day Oil) are applied evenly and economically. Our Day Care products are specifically formulated to be applied to skin that’s still moist from Toner.

6) Dr. Hauschka Toners are not drying to the skin.*

7) Toner may be used to set your make-up and give a more natural look.

8) Toner may be used to hydrate the skin at any time during the day and is also useful to hydrate in flight. We all keep a bottle in our desk drawer!

Note: Dr. Hauschka Toner is a perfect after shave product as well!

Tip: In the heat of summer we pop our Toners in the fridge for a super cooling and refreshing spritz when needed.

Dr. Hauschka Toners

Anthyllis harvest
Anthyllis harvest

Facial Toner contains Anthyllis, one of our key ingredients, which guides all skin conditions to a state of balance and strength. Witch Hazel bark and leaf extract for astringent capabilities, helping to refine the complexion.

Echinacea harvest
Echinacea harvest

Clarifying Toner contains Daisy and Nasturtium to minimise the appearance of blackheads and blemishes, visibly refine pores and reduce excessive oiliness. Anthyllis to balance your skin for a calm, even appearance. Calendula is healing, Echinacea has anti-bacterial properties, Daisy is anti-inflammatory, Horse Chestnut bark extract strengthens the walls of the blood vessels and promotes the circulation and also removes excess fluid from the tissues and makes them firmer and Witch Hazel for it’s astringent benefits.

Do you have dry/maturing skin?

Dryness and dehydration usually are found hand in hand, Toner takes care of hydration and it also helps your Regenerating products, which are specific in supporting a maturing skin, absorb into the skin where they do their work to firm and tone.

Do you have sensitive skin?

Toner hydrates, calms and strengthens your skin. In Clarifying Toner, Daisy has anti-inflammatory and Echinacea has anti-bacterial properties. Sometimes a sensitive, flakey skin has had it’s protective abilities compromised.

*FAQ – Why do some Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products contain alcohol?

Herbs and flowers are the core of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care preparations and many are extracted in a mixture of alcohol and water. Many plants are extracted in alcohol because it extracts the widest variety of plant constituents (the plant’s active ingredients). Alcohol also serves as a natural emulsifier, preservative and carrier, and helps ingredients penetrate the skin.

Our alcohol is not drying to the skin when part of a carefully formulated Dr. Hauschka composition, it’s derived from a fermentation and distillation process from organically grown wheat and is gluten-free. It helps eliminate the need for synthetic preservatives, tones and firms the skin. The amounts of alcohol used in the Dr.Hauschka products are regulated to prevent dryness occurring. Isopropyl alcohol is never used in Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products.

And finally…

Using Toner prior to Cream Mask application aids absorption

Once or twice a week you need the extra benefits that a Cream Mask endows, best to aid absorption of these complex formulations with Toner prior to application. Revitalising Mask is our top seller, no doubt because it benefits all skin conditions, refining and rejuvenating, Hydrating Mask for its super plumping hydrating and deeply moisturising ability, Firming Mask to support a maturing skin with warming Rose in all its forms and Soothing Mask which is a formula with an abundance of botanical ingredients, for strengthening a sensitive, hypersensitive, red, irritated or flaky skin. Soothing Mask has also proved helpful in managing a rosacea skin condition, used as a day cream in this instance.

3 Step Dr. Hauschka Beauty Ritual

Step 1
Clarifying Steam Bath opens your pores and relaxes your skin
Pour the contents of the small bottle into half a litre of hot water in a large bowl. Place a towel over your head and lean over the bowl, allowing the steam to rise onto your face for 5 to 10 minutes. Enjoy the ascending heat and feel how extracts of daisy, nasturtium and witch hazel stimulate the circulation in your skin. Blackheads are softened and impurities reduced.

Step 2
Clarifying Clay Mask cleans and deep cleanses
Using the small porcelain bowl, mix the entire contents of the Clarifying Clay Mask with one to two teaspoons of water. Apply the mask to your face, neck and décolleté and leave it for 5 minutes to take effect. Sit back and relax while medicinal clay and extracts of nasturtium and witch hazel bind with your skin’s metabolic products. Remove the mask with warm water, leaving your skin soothed and your complexion clear.

Tips:

1) Watch where your Clarifying Clay Mask dries first on your skin. This indicates an area which is dehydrated. Are you missing this area with your moisturiser? Do you need to include Hydrating Mask into your weekly regime for a moisture boost?

2) Before using it for the first time and after every subsequent use, wash the mask brush in lukewarm water and a little mild shampoo. Always lay it flat to dry in a sunny place. If you place it upwards to dry, moisture seeps down and may compromise the glue.

Step 3
Cream Masks tailored to your skin condition with medicinal plant extracts
Generously apply Cream Mask to your face (including eye contour area as an eye mask as well), neck and décolleté. After a minimum of 20 minutes, use a warm, damp cloth to remove the mask and complete your feel good ritual.

Steps 1, 2 & 3

Intensive Skincare Sets

Revitalising Mask
soothes, enlivens and refines all skin conditions

Revitalising Mask offers soothing care and deep renewal for all skin conditions. The appearance of redness or blemishes diminished, pores are visibly refined and skin appears more even and toned. Skin glows with a healthy radiance.

Formulation: Quince seed, anthyllis and chamomile extracts rapidly support the skin’s processes of renewal, helping to maintain moisture, visibly minimise pores and calm the appearance of redness and irritation. Nurturing jojoba, apricot kernel and wheat germ oils clarify and smooth skin. Applying this mask will help you to feel pampered and offer your skin a sense of well-being.

Skin condition: Benefits all skin conditions

Soothing Mask
calms sensitive and irritated skin

Soothing Mask calms and balances sensitive, reddened and irritated skin, guiding it to comfort and radiance.

Formulation: Alchemilla, borage, buckwheat and mullein combine to calm and fortify skin, helping skin to become less reactive. Quince seed extract and witch hazel help retain moisture while nourishing shea butter joins macadamia nut and coconut oils to provide protection. Anthyllis soothes and balances redness and irritation. Applying this mask helps to revive your skin and supports an even complexion.

Skin condition: For sensitive, irritated and stressed skin.

Firming Mask
visibly minimises fine lines and wrinkles

As we age, the skin’s natural processes of cellular renewal slow and it loses elasticity and resilience. Firming Mask protects and fortifies, minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while nurturing and hydrating for smooth, supple, enlivened skin.

Formulation: Rose, Marsh mallow and pansy support the skin’s natural processes of renewal. Rose petal extract, rose wax, rose essential oil and avocado and almond oils support elasticity as they pamper and enrich the skin. Mango butter and beeswax enliven and replenish. Applying this mask supports your skin feeling stronger and smoother.

Skin condition: For mature skin

Cream Mask Use:
After cleansing and toning, apply a generous amount of Cream Mask to the face (include eye contour area as an eye mask), neck and décolleté. Remove after a minimum of 20 minutes with a warm, moist cloth.

We recommend using a Cream Mask once to twice a week.
