Which Moisturiser is the best choice for you?

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.

  • Neem, St. John’s wort and calendula extracts combine to visibly minimise redness and help maintain a healthy, radiant complexion

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.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 2.18.47 pm

Anti-Ageing Award Winner 2015

  • To support a maturing skin
  • Light texture which is rapidly absorbed
  • Supports the skin’s natural regenerative functions, smoothing and refines the delicate skin around the eyes

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 1.23.55 pm

Tips

  1. After eye contour application, with the residual Regenerating Eye Cream that’s left on your ring fingers apply around the contour of your lips as boost against lip lines.
  2. Never use eye cream at night, it’s likely to result in puffy morning eyes. Do apply firming and oil-free Regenerating Serum or revitalising and oil-free Night Serum to the eye contour area at night after cleansing and toning.
  3. Use your once or twice weekly Cream Mask treatments around your eye contour area too, as an eye mask. A favourite Mask Blend of ours is to use Regenerating Serum then Hydrating Mask over the top of the Serum and leave to absorb for as long as possible. This is our super nourishing and plumping mask treatment blend. Remove with a warm, moist cloth prior to bedtime.
  4. Always treat your eyes and eye contour area with the utmost care. Remove eye make-up with Soothing Cleansing Milk on a dampened cotton wool pad and use gentle sweeping movements from the inside to the outside corner of your closed eye.
  5. Get regular eye check-ups, and wear your sunnies and a hat.

Key Ingredients – Regenerating Eye Cream

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 2.11.48 pm

Field Horsetail is an ancient plant that’s very rich in minerals. In particular, they contain silicic acid, which supports connective tissue.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.15.22 pm

Red Clover is a rich source of isoflavones which aid skin prone to premature ageing. The highly regenerative red clover extract is prepared using our own special rhythmic process.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.21.11 pm

Sea Buckthorn’s golden-orange fruit provide vitamins C and E, carotenoids and oils rich in essential fatty acids: oleic acid (omega-9), palmitoleic acid (omega-7), palmitic acid and linoleic acid (omega-6), linolenic acid (omega-3).

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 12.47.17 pm

Precious Borage Seed Oil is an especially high-quality oil which is rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Borage seed oil has one of the highest amounts of GLA in seed oils, around 24%.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 2.07.09 pm

Mature Skin

Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 12.08.39 pm

Beautiful skin isn’t always healthy – however healthy skin is always beautiful.

Mature Skin: Declining elasticity, wrinkles, an increasing tendency to dryness, possibly with constantly red cheek/nasal region (visible capillaries), thin skin, irregular pigmentation due to menopause, age spots, sun damage.

Natural & Organic Skin Care for Mature Skin
The key to beautiful mature skin is to age with healthy skin.

As we age, our skin needs specific care it may not have previously required. The process of cellular renewal slows, and skin naturally loses elasticity and resilience. Dr. Hauschka’s Regenerating Range supports productive skin renewal, refining skin and energising its regenerative processes for a firmer, smoother, radiant appearance.

  • Noticeably firms and tones
  • Supports the skin’s natural regenerative functions
  • Enhances skin elasticity
  • Balances moisture content, making skin feel smooth, soft, firm and supple
  • Antioxidant-rich red clover, acerola berries and raspberry seed oil protect against free radical damage and support the skin’s natural processes of renewal
  • Also formulated for sensitive skin

Your Essential Day Care

1) Cleanse with our Correct Cleansing and Hydrate and Compress. Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence in your basin water relaxes, Rose Nurturing Bath Essence is an exotic way to begin the day and Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence is energising. Cleansing Cream deep cleanses after the night time activity of the skin, removing impurities without stripping the skin of moisture and protection.

2) Close eyes and mist your skin with Facial Toner then apply 1 pump Regenerating Serum to firm a mature skin, helping to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while balancing moisture content.

Oil-free Regenerating Serum for day and night use gives ample moisture and a fresh, firm feel. With its formulation of moisture-regulating quince seed extract, isoflavone-rich (also referred to as phytoestrogens), regenerative red clover, vital bryophyllum and clover blossom honey. Regenerating Serum fortifies the skin’s natural functions, regulates moisture and noticeably refines and firms the skin. It also soothes reddened, sensitive skin. The result: a refined and firmer complexion.

3) Warm approximately a rice size amount of Regenerating Eye Cream between your two ring fingers and apply from inner to outer eye contour. A light formulation day time eye care product containing nine plant oils including precious borage seed oil rich in gamma-linolenic acid and many unsaturated fatty acids. Together with moisture rich extract of quince seed, decongestive birch leaves, silica-rich field horsetail and isoflavone-rich red clover to firm and strengthen. Antioxidant protection from cherry fruit and sea buckthorn oil.

4) Moisturise with Regenerating Day Cream, a rich cream with a luxurious composition of vital bryophyllum (kalanchoe), isoflavone-rich and the great regenerator red clover, silica-rich field horsetail, vitamin-rich acerola (cherry) fruits and harmonising rose petals enhances the skin’s tone and elasticity and smoothes wrinkles and lines, leaving the skin looking radiant. Finest plant oils such as precious raspberry seed oil, avocado oil and shea butter provide rich protection all day long. The cream also soothes reddened and sensitive skin.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 2.17.15 pm

Tip: Add a little Translucent Bronzing Tint and mix with your Regenerating Day Cream prior to application, this then becomes a tinted moisturiser. As we age our skin may become a little pallid, Translucent Bronzing Tint puts uplifting, youthful warm tones back into the skin.

Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 12.06.56 pm
Plant pic: highly regenerative and isoflavone-rich Red Clover

Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream is specifically formulated to replenish, fortify and firm skin for a smoother appearance. A readily absorbed cream that makes the skin feel firmer and refines its structure. Field horsetail with it high silica content and firming action supports the connective tissue of neck and décolleté. Extracts of marshmallow, birch and red clover form a luxurious composition to help the skin retain moisture with exotic argan oil that’s highly compatible with the skin and counteracts skin ageing. This cream is a rich formulation designed for the décolleté and neck which have less sebaceous glands.

Your Essential Night Care

1) Compress and Hydrate then apply Soothing Cleansing Milk which is a light, gentle, effective make-up and eye make-up remover plus evening cleansing product from the dirt and dust your skin picks up during the day.

2) Close eyes and mist Facial Toner directly onto your skin

3) Apply one pump of Regenerating Serum. Dr. Hauschka does not recommend moisturisers at night. Indeed in our experience the use of heavy, occlusive night creams exacerbate a dry skin. Sleeping is not ageing.

Spring Skin Care & Potent Antioxidant Blend

Screen Shot 2015-09-30 at 11.42.16 am

Dryness and dehydration is a prime reason for premature wrinkles and lines so it’s imperative we protect our skin from this condition.

So what’s the solution to dryness and dehydration?

Hydrating Mask is our ultimate skin fix to hydrate and moisturise, attending to both dryness and dehydration. Use twice a week, cleanse early in the evening and apply the mask, around your eye contour too, and rather than leaving it on for 2-30 minutes, I prefer to leave it on to absorb all evening, removing with a moist, tepid cloth before bed.

If your skin is extremely dry you may also use Hydrating Mask as your ‘day cream’ for a month or until condition improves.

This super rich blend of botanicals soothes, protects and revitalises while sealing in moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth, supple and plumped!

– 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

Skin Vitamins
The skin healers and antioxidants are Vitamins A, C and E, and the optimum choice when topically applying these vitamins is when they come in the form of the whole plant extract, not as a synthetic chemical isolated ingredient.

Rich in antioxidants blend

Rosehip for Vitamin C and Wheatgerm for Vitamin E, both found in Rose Day Cream, mix with a drop of two of Clarifying Day Oil prior to application to skin still moist from Toner. The magnificent orange colour of Clarifying Day Oil comes from Wild Carrot Extract, a rich source of provitamin A.  When we use Clarifying Day Oil in this way, rather than for an oily skin prescription, we are using it as an oil ‘serum’.

There you have it, a potent antioxidant and protective blend!

Blending

This first blend is so uplifting that when our UK Esthetician Trainer tried it she only did it on one half of her face. She promptly had to do the other half because of the difference it had made.

Firming, Hydrating & Moisturising Mask Blend

  • Cleanse early in the evening
  • Apply a generous amount of Regenerating Serum – eye contour area too, as an eye mask
  • Then apply Hydrating Mask over the top – eye contour area too, as an eye mask
  • Leave to absorb all evening, removing with a warm, moist cloth just before bedtime

Soothing & Moisturising Mask Blend

  • For dry, red, irritated, itchy or flaky skin
  • Cleanse early in the evening
  • Apply a generous amount Soothing & Hydrating Mask mixture – eye contour area too, as an eye mask
  • Leave to absorb all evening, removing with a warm, moist cloth just before bedtime

Screen Shot 2015-09-30 at 11.20.59 am

Do you need to alter your day care with the Seasons?

Yes, that may well be the case.  We have many customers using cooling Quince Day Cream in the warmer months and the more protective and warming Rose Day Cream in the colder months.  Other customers choose to use Rose Day Cream Light with its matte texture and lighter formulation in spring/summer and Rose Day Cream in autumn/winter.  Check in with your skin, see how it’s feeling and certainly change to a more protective day care if need be.

I use Regenerating Serum and Regenerating Day Cream during the week which is spent indoors and in the weekend I use Rose Day Cream when I’m more likely to have time outdoors. I usually mix in a couple of drops of Clarifying Day Oil too with my Rose Day Cream, as an oil based ‘serum’ in this case, to increase antioxidants. So even my weekly ritual changes due to my daily environment.

Screen Shot 2015-09-30 at 11.44.21 am

We can support ourselves in stressful times with Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil which is a protective and calming blend. Blackthorn Toning Body Oil I find warming, strengthening and it helps me focus, one job at a time and tick them off. Blackthorn Elixir has been used for years as a strengthening tonic to assist in the treatment of fatigue or convalescence and for those who are feeling stressed or drained of vitality. Lemon Lemongrass is refreshing and revitalising. Almond St. John’s wort Soothing Body Oil is a cheerful blend. Rose is both exotic and nurturing. Birch Arnica is recommended during detox and is supportive pre or post exercise and also useful if you have aching muscles or stiff joints.

Sometimes you just need a little ‘me time’ and a treat. A Foot Bath, even if it’s only for 10 minutes, can do wonders – your feet will look good too! Choose your Dr. Hauschka Bath Essence aromatics for the benefits you are looking for:

Dr. Hauschka Bath Essences

  • Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence (milky formula) – envelops and protects
  • Rose Nurturing Bath Essence (milky formula) – uplifts the spirit
  • Almond Soothing Bath Essence – luxury to the senses
  • Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence – invigorating and refreshing
  • Sage Bath Essence – is known for its refreshing, perspiration-regulating action. It provides a refreshing foot bath after sport and exercise and tired feet are wonderfully refreshed. In the cooler months of the year it helps to prevent poor circulation and chills

Complete your foot bath with an application of Hydrating Foot Balm or Deodorising Foot Balm. Both products are warming, moisturising and rapidly absorbed. I feel like I’m ‘walking on air’ after use.

Click > Dr. Hauschka Deodorants, for more information about why it’s important to use natural and organic deodorants.

Spring is a time to tidy up the garden and plant, exercise out in the fresh air as your lymph system needs movement, early morning sunshine for Vitamin D, and it’s time to come out of winter hibernation and enjoy social times too.

Delight in our natural and organic skin care to protect from the elements and nourish, and use natural and organic body products that do so much more than just moisturise your skin.

The delicate area around the eyes is much thinner than other parts of the body because it does not have subcutaneous fatty tissue, which makes it particularly sensitive and prone to wrinkles. Daily application of eye cream is a must plus use your Cream Mask on the eye contour area as an ‘eye mask’. Never use an eye cream at night, it’s likely to cause puffy eyes in the morning.

Eating your antioxidants

The three major antioxidant vitamins are beta-carotene (provitamin A), vitamin C, and vitamin E. You’ll find them in colourful fruits and vegetables, especially those with purple, blue, red, orange and yellow hues.

Beta-carotene and other carotenoids: apricots, asparagus, beetroot, broccoli, rock melon, carrots, corn, capsicum, kale, mangoes, turnip, cabbage, nectarines, peaches, pink grapefruit, pumpkin, squash, spinach, sweet potato, tangerines, tomatoes, and watermelon

Vitamin C: berries, cherries, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, rock melon, cauliflower, grapefruit, honeydew, kale, kiwi, mango, nectarine, orange, papaya, snow peas, sweet potato, strawberries, tomatoes, and red, green or yellow capsicum

Vitamin E: broccoli, carrots, cherries, silver beet, mustard and turnip greens, mangoes, nuts, papaya, pumpkin, red capsicum, spinach and sunflower seeds

These foods are also rich in antioxidants:

Prunes, apples, raisins, plums, red grapes, alfalfa sprouts, onions, eggplant and beans.

Other antioxidants that can help keep you healthy include:

Zinc: oysters, red meat, poultry, beans, nuts, seafood, whole grains, fortified cereals and dairy products

Selenium : Brazil nuts, tuna, beef, poultry, fortified breads and other grain products

Cooking tip: To get the biggest benefits of antioxidants, eat these foods raw or lightly steamed. Don’t overcook or boil them.

BTW: I’ve just discovered I can eat Brussel sprouts, chopped finely and in a coleslaw with apple and carrot, who knew! I’ve never been able to stomach them cooked.

MiNDFOOD Magazine – NEW Night Serum

Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 1.33.55 pm

Tender is the Night

The nocturnal activity of the skin is crucial for protection, repair and regeneration, and one new product is embracing the ethos of letting things happen naturally.

Words by Liz Hancock, MiNDFOOD Magazine

In myths and folklore, night is the time when magic happens. Fairies come out to make mischief, the Sandman sprinkles enchanted dust into the eyes of sleepers to bring them good dreams and charmed underworlds materialise to tempt princesses to dance with strangers.

In the plant kingdom, florae utilise night-time to process nutrients absorbed and created during the day and begin the activity of new growth, according to Germany’s Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology.

Night is also a time of magic for the skin. In general, the body and mind process the day’s activity – tissues grow and repair, growth hormones are released, body and mind are energised, nutrients and waste are processed.

Equally, the skin repairs and energises itself as we slumber. Cell production speeds up, metabolic waste is shed, proteins heal damage and tissues are repaired. This is why night beauty products have become an increasing focus for the industry.

But one brand takes a truly unique approach to evening care. A founding principle of German natural beauty brand Dr. Hauschka is to leave the skin free at night, so it can rest and breathe easily in order to regenerate.

Because protection against the likes of sun, wind and pollution aren’t an issue while you sleep, the company has always left the skin unburdened by oils and moisturisers, with a two-step bedtime routine that involves gentle cleansing and then toning to stimulate the skin.

“During the day, your skin can use the protection and nourishment offered by your skincare products,” explains Annette Greco, head of galenic development at Dr. Hauschka. “At night, on the other hand, your skin needs something different: support for the natural processes rather than more substances.”

Now Dr. Hauschka is launching Night Serum, a light, oil-free product with new botanical ingredients to aid skin renewal while you sleep. Dr. Hauschka Night Serum contains rose apple blossom and fruit extracts, and is said to boost the skin’s natural activity, helping it to maintain its own moisture levels, leaving it smooth, radiant and fresh.

Rich in symbolism, the apple is association with Venus, the Roman goddess of love, beauty and fertility. Apples are high in vitamins A and C, which are regenerating and repairing on the skin. A sweet dream indeed.
