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

  1. Compress & Hydrate your skin using Sage Purifying Bath Essence in your basin water

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

Oily Skin

Screen Shot 2015-06-19 at 9.44.00 am

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

If you have an oily skin you may be tempted to use harsh cleansing products (overly alkaline, lathering, harsh exfoliating via beads or acids) that ‘strip’ the skin, this just results in your skin producing more oil to compensate. It’s imperative to correctly cleanse with effective and gentle cleansing that respect the pH of your skin. Your skin’s acid mantle is protective against bacteria.

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 your skin a chance to regulate and balance on our skin care regime.

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 – warm 2-3 drops and press into skin that’s still moist from your Toner
  5. If you have pimples apply Coverstick, our amazing conceal and treat pimple zapping product.

Tip: You may wish to mix a little Translucent Bronzing Tint in with your Clarifying Day Oil to help even skin tone

Weekly care:

Once a week complete a Clarifying Steam Bath following by Clarifying Clay Mask to draw impurities from your skin and to gently exfoliate. Then apply Revitalising Mask which soothes skin, refines pores and may help heal new scarring. Sunday night for this is a great skin care habit to get into.

On another night of the week cleanse early in the evening, apply Revitalising Mask and leave to absorb as long as possible, removing before bedtime with a warm, moist cloth. If you’re in a hurry leave on for 30 minutes.

Annual/Seasonal Care

Twice a year in the most transitional seasons of autumn and spring complete a 30 night Renewing Night Conditioner treatment instead of Toner. Renewing Night Conditioner is also highly recommended if you’re a new Dr. Hauschka customer and your skin is transitioning off night creams and synthetic chemical products.

Twice a year complete a Clarifying Intensive Treatment (<25 or >25) morning and evening instead of Toner. Choose summer and winter for this one month, one bottle treatment.

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.

Which Moisturiser is right for you?

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 5.03.19 pmScreen Shot 2015-02-23 at 2.11.37 pm

IMPORTANT – How to use our Moisturisers
Our moisturisers are highly concentrated, they’re formulated specifically to be applied as follows:

1) Apply in the morning after Cleansing Cream and Toner
2) Place approximately a large pea size of Day Cream in the palm of your hand (or in the case of Clarifying Day Oil 2-3 drops)
3) Warm to melt the waxes and oils between the palms of both hands
4) Apply to skin that’s still moist from Toner, to ensure even and economical application, using the palms of both hands
5) Apply from centre of the face outwards in direction of lymph flow

In the evening after Cleansing Milk and Toning no moisturiser is needed as heavy, occlusive night creams disrupt the elimination and regeneration functions of the skin overnight.

Revitalising Mask lives up to its name

Screen Shot 2014-10-13 at 11.58.40 am

As an intensive care product, it re-enlivens stagnant processes and stimulates the skin’s natural powers.

Our most versatile cream mask; soothing and cooling for a sensitive or sun stressed skin, enlivening for a mature skin and deep cleansing for a blemished skin. Quince Seed extract for moisture, Bentonite Clay to soothe the skin and give a deep cleansing action and calming Chamomile. Revitalising Mask is your ‘go to’ mask!

“I adore this mask twice a week, it does wonders as a skin pick-me-up.” 

“I always choose Revitalising Mask to even skin tone and refine pores before a special event.”

Intensive care products such as face masks provide well being for stressed and tired skin. Used regularly, they provide preventative care and help the skin activate it’s own natural powers as protection against external influences.

Fortification for the skin and soul
Various influences such as pollution, a poor diet and a hectic lifestyle destroy the natural balance of not only our skin but also our general wellness leaving us feeling frail and drained. Treating yourself to a little more than your basic day-to-day facial care regime can truly work wonders. In addition to the physical aim of helping tone the skin, a face mask is also a beauty ritual that we plan and take some time out for. Through this alone, we create a sense of well-being for our skin and soul.

Screen Shot 2014-09-04 at 10.13.57 am

A mask for everyone
A broad range of nourishing masks exists for the many different skin conditions. What makes Revitalising Mask special is that it is suitable and benefits all skin conditions. The mask was developed on the basis of a herbal medicine that combats hard scar tissue through the use of natural substances that have smoothing properties and promote regeneration. Inspired by this, the aim was to create an intensive skin care product for the skin care sector that helps reduce blemishes such as acne scars by structuring and soothing stressed skin.

The result was a product made from quince, anthyllis and chamomile, all of which are medicinal plants. Together, they promote the skin’s natural ability to firm and shape the skin and stimulate circulation. Quince seed extract is particularly characterised by highly soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. It also regulates the skin’s natural moisture levels. The formulation is rounded off by high-quality jojoba, apricot kernel and wheat germ oils, which purify and smoothen the skin. The pleasant, revitalising effect can be just what you need at the end of a strenuous day. A nourishing mask that offers well being for all skin. Simply lie back and enjoy.

Tips:
– Also apply to eye contour as an eye mask
– You can mix a little Revitalising Mask with your usual Dr. Hauschka day care for a month for a skin boost
– Skin treat with Clarifying Steam Bath, then Clarifying Clay Mask, followed by Revitalising Mask, your skin will love you for it!

Please note: Revitalising Mask was formerly named Rejuvenating Mask

The Truth About Exfoliating

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 3.21.22 PM

How often do you read advice that you should be exfoliating?

Plenty, but not from us, that’s for sure.

So called exfoliating ‘beauty treatments’ include dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, AHA/BHA peels, plus of course there’s numerous harsh exfoliants on the market; grains, brushes, acids and so forth. Many exfoliating ‘grain’ products are made from plastics that will be floating around in our water for hundreds of years to come.

Harsh interference with the top layer of your skin gives you much more likelihood of sun damage, dryness, irritation, redness and sensitivity.

Our skin has an acid mantle, the reason for this is bacteria don’t like an acid environment, so it’s also important to preserve the pH of your skin using products that respect rather than disrupt this protection.

The top layer of your skin, the epidermis, is extremely thin. Any harsh acidic or scrubbing action is going to be damaging. Those dead cells are there for a reason, protecting the young cells coming through on a natural 28 day skin cell cycle. They’re also helping to keep moisture in.

We educate that you must treat your skin in a loving and gentle manner. It has to last you a lifetime!

Cleansing Cream in your morning skin care ritual will be removing dead cells that are ready to slough off in a very gentle manner, as will your weekly Cleansing Clay Mask. Nothing more than that is needed for healthy, balanced and radiant skin.

And yes, your skin can still feel incredibly soft without any harsh exfoliants whatsoever. Just incorporate Compress & Hydrate + Press & Roll into your daily regime. This method softens the pores of your skin resulting in a much deeper cleanse, using less product BTW, and in softer skin.

Then always complete your cleanse with a cool water splash or hold a cool compress to your skin for a moment or two. 

Why? Because this simple technique activates a minute muscle alongside the hair follicle causing it to contract which assists in removing any last remaining dirt, result is also a softening effect.

Skin Care During Menopause

Screen Shot 2014-05-12 at 11.33.59 am

During menopause skin is likely to experience changes. Hot flushes may be so problematic that using warming Rose products such as Rose Day Cream and/or Firming Mask may no longer be appropriate for this stage. Products with cooling properties or don’t specifically warm your skin are:

Regenerating Serum & Regenerating Day Cream
Quince Day Cream
Rejuvenating Mask
Moisturising Day Cream

Toned Day Cream – the original BB cream – is a great alternative too. As we age our skin becomes a little pallid, so Toned Day Cream puts the warm tones back into your skin, helps to even skin tone and provides plenty of moisture.

Some women experience severe break-outs for the first time in their life during menopause. So skin care needs to change to reflect this. Cover Stick is a must product for treating and healing any pimples as quickly as possible. Rejuvenating Mask is also highly recommended twice weekly. If you’ve been using Moisturising Day Cream, you may find this product too active for your sebaceous glands during this time of transition.

Other women experience extreme dryness (lack of oil) and/or dehydration (lack of water). Use Moisturising Mask twice weekly for a boost. You may also use Moisturising Mask as your daily moisturiser until condition improves. We also recommend light Moisturising Day Cream to activate a dry skin to produce more oil. Hydration plumps the skin so drinking your 6-8 glasses of water a day is extremely important.

Include specific support for your skin with Intensive Treatment 05 for Menopausal Skin.

Intensive Treatment 05 for Menopausal Skin
Specialised care for skin during menopause

Please note: change of name soon to Intensive Treatment for Menopausal Skin

Dr. Hauschka Intensive Treatments are formulated for skin that has lost its natural balance and requires focused care. Intensive Treatment for Menopausal Skin balances hormonally related skin changes while supporting your skin’s natural processes of renewal. The appearance of blotchiness and spots is diminished for a calm, even complexion.

Formulation: Rhythmitised dilutions of Daisy and Rose work with gemstones Argentite, Ruby powder and Black Cohosh to revitalise dull, lifeless skin and reduce the appearance of redness and irregular pigmentation.

Black Cohosh is well known for its use during menopause. Its rhizomes survive the winter, and it is these life-bearing rootstocks that are processed. They are much appreciated in particular during the phase of change surrounding the menopause. The Black Cohosh extract in Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products is prepared using our own special rhythmic process.

Rubies are red gemstones, so fitting with our homeopathic guidelines of like treats like, red treats redness. Ruby has a harmonising effect on the skin helping to reduce the appearance of redness and blotchiness. Rubies are one of the oldest traditional healing stones.

Argentite is a bluish-grey-to-black silver mineral with a metallic sheen. In combination with the other ingredients in Intensive Treatment 05, Argentite supports the skin’s own processes of renewal.

Use:
Skin cells are renewed every 28 days. Mirroring this same regenerative cycle, Intensive Treatments should be used as a 28 day entire treatment in the one bottle, to be used instead of a Toner. Intensive Treatments work most effectively when used four times a year as a stimulus. After morning and evening cleansing, mist 4-5 pumps onto the face, neck and décolleté then gently press into the skin.

Dr. Hauschka – Mum, Baby & Child

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 2.28.10 pm

During my baby building stages and for the baby/toddler early years Rose Day Cream nurtured more than just my skin. Keeping up with my daily Dr. Hauschka rituals was my special moment at the beginning and at the end of each day. When applying Rose Day Cream in the morning I would always cup the warmed cream in the palms of my hands around my nose first and take a moment to deeply smell the aromas of organic and biodynamic roses to nurture me. I also remember thinking it felt good knowing when I cuddled my babies that they were only receiving residual Rose Day Cream from my face.

Although I was already a long term Dr. Hauschka customer, this was a time that became a catalyst to change in many areas of habitual shopping. Basically getting rid of all unnecessary chemicals from us, our home, the laundry etc.

During pregnancy body care is particularly important to keep the skin supple, Dr. Hauschka Blackthorn Toning Body Oil supports the skin’s elasticity in weight loss or weigh gain and helps to prevent the appearance of stretch marks. I used Blackthorn Toning Body Oil from 25 weeks while skin was still moist after my morning shower. It’s formula is based on plant extracts, with only a minute amount of essential oils for fragrance. It did the trick! I think we forged an everlasting friendship at that time. I still reach for Blackthorn Toning Body Oil, particularly in autumn and winter when I need it strengthening more than toning effect.

Rose Nurturing Body Cream to keep skin supple, Rose Nurturing Body Oil too, it’s just a matter of personal preference or mix the Oil with the Body Cream for a more intense aromatic experience.

Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil relaxes, soothes and encourages sleep.

Rose Nurturing Bath Essence gives a Cleopatra moment, exotic and nurturing at the same time, in the bath or in your Compress & Hydrate basin water pre facial cleansing. Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence aids relaxation. Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence to refresh and revitalise.

Quince Hydrating Body Milk gives the skin a fresh, firm feeling during pregnancy, as does Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Milk.

Rapidly tiring and swelling legs in the latter stages of pregnancy gain support from Revitalising Leg & Arm Tonic.

A protective cocoon for the child

Only the best is good enough for a child’s tender skin. The rich Dr.Hauschka creams and oils nurture their sensitive skin and envelop the child in a warming and protective cocoon. For the youngest, this warming protection is very important, as they can get cold quickly.

Babies really only need to be bathed in warm water and a muslin cloth; however, Dr.Hauschka Rose Nurturing Body Wash with such gentle ingredients from nature is for cleansing if needed.

Our Silk Body Powder containing real silk powder has to be the most exquisite and caring baby body powder there is! Created by combining fine Silk powder, which has anti-bacterial properties and is particularly well tolerated by baby’s skin, Rice starch, Silica and extracts of Gentian, Oak and Sage. Silk Body Powder does wonders for preventing the appearance of nappy rash. In my personal experience, Silk Body Powder was the ONLY product that worked for my daughter’s predisposition to nappy rash.

Screen Shot 2014-05-02 at 2.57.45 pm

Tip:  Rose Nurturing Body Oil for gentle and caring baby massage. Just remember to wrap baby in a towel or blanket when lifting in case they’re a little slippery!

Your facial skin care during pregnancy and post natal

Your skin may go through changes as your body has to metabolise hugely increased hormone levels and for many as the baby takes so many nutrients their skin becomes incredibly dry.   Some new Mums will experience break outs, while others find their skin becomes parched dry.

After having my son my skin quite literally went to the pack. It became sore, dry, itchy – awful really. At the time I thought it was due to the fact that he was such a rapacious baby, leaving me short in skin nutrients. Remembering my knowledge, despite chronic lack of sleep and therefore brain fade, I reached for a 28 night treatment of Renewing Night Conditioner which is recommended for any times of transition and post natal certainly is that! Incredibly problem was solved within 4 nights.

Please contact us if you feel you may need to alter your usual Dr. Hauschka skin regime to address a changing skin condition.  We’re always happy to put together a recommended Product Prescription and Skin Care Regime for you. Email discovery@drhauschka.com.au or phone Fay, Manager of the Dr. Hauschka Discovery Store to have a chat through your skin concerns (02) 9818 6119.

We received the below from a Dr. Hauschka customer recently…

“I have used Dr. Hauschka for over 10 years and it’s always worked well for me. When I was expecting our first child last July I looked to see if Dr. Hauschka did a baby range (I’d never needed to look for it before) and  there isn’t. Fortunately, I found several articles with a list of the Dr. Hauschka products I could use on bub so they were placed on my gift list.

The paediatric nurse gave me a tube of D****** with steroids for baby’s face which had acne and the skin was literally peeling off, including inside and behind her ears. I decided to try the Rose Day Cream on her face. I was using it as a nappy change cream. I was concerned it would be too strong for her face but it wasn’t. To my surprise within HOURS patches of dryness had disappeared and within 3 days her skin was once again blooming. I applied it religiously at every nappy change and bub started to smile as I smeared it over her face. At our next weekly visit to the paediatric nurse she was surprised at how much her skin had improved. I told her what I had used and offered her the D****** cream back. Interestingly, the nurse also uses Dr. Hauschka so I am hopeful that she will now recommend parents try Rose Day Cream rather than administering free samples of D******. Within 2 weeks my baby’s skin was completely free of any dryness and acne and has remained so although I no longer use any cream on her skin. She has had perfect skin for 2 months. My tube of Rose Day Cream lasted for 4 months using it as a nappy change cream intermittently (perhaps 5 times per week when redness started to appear but was not sore) and a solid 2 weeks on her face and ears (6-7 times per day). I consider this very good value.

Why am I telling you all this?

Because it’s the sort of information I would have loved to read when I was pregnant and looking for a suitable baby product range. I also use the Moor Lavender Calming Body Oil in her bath. The time frame to cure dry skin, how often it is applied and the expected cost per year are all considerations. The message I have is it’s not expensive to use Rose Day Cream as your primary baby cream. It works and works quickly so little is required. And of course, the most important thing is not subjecting your bundle of joy to those nasties, particularly steroids! And of course, she smells as sweet as a rose 🙂

There’s a lot of organic alternatives out there these days and yes, I have some on my change table that were given as gifts, but I have tried them once and didn’t like the feel of them. I also noticed the redness didn’t disappear after one application, unlike when I use Rose Day Cream.”

Nappy rash problem sorted, email from another happy customer…

“Our 9 month old typically cheerful baby girl had been suffering with nappy rash. It flared up very badly and our little girl was in pain. I consulted our family doctor and was prescribed a mild hydrocortisone to be applied topped with heavy aqueous cream and then thick barrier cream. We were also advised as much ‘nappy off’ time as possible to allow the skin to dry out. The full tube of hydrocortisone was used and the rash had not gone. I was beside myself to see my baby in such pain and felt uneasy about continuing to use steroid creams on such delicate skin. Plus the concept of drying the skin out whilst glooping it in three layers of creams just wasn’t making sense. Having worked with Dr. Hauschka in the past I felt sure there would be something in the range that may help. Silk Body Powder was our saviour! I set aside all the creams and applied just this beautiful powder and the result was almost instant. It dried her skin completely and the raw skin looked immediately less red and soothed. Within a week of use with every nappy change my little girl’s skin was healed. I recommend this product 100%. It’s simply amazing.”

In pregnancy and beyond remember you also require fresh, nutritious food and get plenty of sleep while you can.

As the kids grew I kept finding new uses for Dr. Hauschka products. For minor scratches and scrapes a quick spritz of Clarifying Toner which contains anti-bacterial Echinacea and anti-inflammatory Daisy. I’m a fan of all our Bath Essences and as I used to read to the kids while they were in the bath I also enjoyed the aromatics. The odd patch of dry skin sorted with Rose Day CreamSage Purifying Bath Essence foot bath and Deodorising Foot Cream came to our aid when my daughter picked up ‘something’ on her feet after a session at the swimming pool and both kids love After Sun applied during beach holidays to keep their skin cool and soothed, the aroma is now reminiscent of holidays for them.

Combination Skin, Oily Skin, Pimples – what to do!

Screen Shot 2013-12-20 at 9.05.51 AM

Puberty brings about such increases in hormonal activity that most pre-teens and teens are likely to experience acne or pimples. The liver has to metabolise the increased hormonal activity and one of the skin’s many functions is as an organ of elimination, pimples are the result. Pores open to cope with the additional oil production. Even if this situation calms somewhat over time it’s likely that monthly pimples will go on through 20’s and 30’s. Hormonal acne often also features in pregnancy, post natal and menopause and also there’s cosmetic acne caused by petrochemical based occlusive make-up products. Cosmetic brushes and sponges hygiene is important too.

Morning Products:

Cleansing Cream
Our morning deep cleansing product with almond meal that binds particularly well to the night time elimination activities of the skin, yet respects the pH of the skin. The slightly acidic environment of a healthy skin is your protection against bacteria. Cleansing Cream is a first priority product.

Use: Place a large pea size of product in the palm of one hand, moisten with a little water to make and emulsion, not a paste, and with the palms of both hands ‘press and roll’ into the skin, see our above video.  No scrubbing, way too harsh for skin that has to last you a life time.

Cleansing Tip
Cleansing Tip

Clarifying Toner
A hydrating treatment product with active botanicals, contains antibacterial Echinacea and anti-inflammatory Daisy. Perfect ‘after shave’ preparation for guys too!

Use: Just close eyes and mist directly onto skin. This is not a conventional toner that you use with cotton pads.

Normalising Day Oil
With this product we are incorporating homeopathic guidelines, ‘like treats like’ – an oil for an oily skin! Seriously, it calms and regulates oil production, whereas harsh stripping type products just make for more oil production as the skin compensates. Don’t look for that ‘squeaky clean feel’, that means the pH of the skin has been disrupted. NDO regulates oil production and heals with Wild Carrot extract, a rich source of pro- Vitamin A. Plethora of anti-oxidants in a bottle.

Formulation: Apricot Kernel, Almond and Wheat germ oils balance the skin’s natural oil content, while Anthyllis and Carrot extracts calm the skin. Neem, St. John’s wort and Calendula extracts combine to visibly minimise redness and help maintain a healthy, radiant complexion.

Use: Only 3 drops are required on the palm of the hand, warm between the palms of the hands then press into skin still moist with Toner. One bottle will last you ages.

Melissa Day Cream

Melissa Day Cream balances and effectively cares for combination skin. Oily areas are calmed, dry patches are hydrated, the appearance of redness is reduced, and shine is controlled for a balanced, radiant complexion. The medicinal herb Melissa (Lemon Balm) has a fresh and ‘lemony’ aroma that’s wonderfully uplifting.

Formulation: Extracts of Melissa, Daisy, Anthyllis, Witch Hazel and Carrot soothe, working to balance the skin’s natural oil and water content. Tapioca starch provides an even, matte appearance.

Use: Warm around a large pea size of product between the palms of the hands and apply to skin still moist from Toner from the centre of the face, in an outwards direction.  We always work in the direction of lymph flow.

Extra Oily T-Zone Tip:
Apply Normalising Day Oil to the T-zone area, then follow with Melissa Day Cream 

Pure Care Cover Stick
Our incredible pimple treatment product that conceals as well and works in a speedy manner. Contains just the right amount of Tea Tree and Manuka for their anti-bacterial properties, Tapioca Starch to absorb the ‘yucky stuff’, for want of a better word. The quicker a pimple is healed the less likelihood of lifelong scarring.

✓ Covers spots and blemishes effectively.
✓ Antibacterial formula clarifies and harmonises the skin.
✓ Natural waxes help to prevent dryness.
✓ Anthyllis and Calendula assist the skin’s healing processes.
✓ Available in 3 shades

Use:
❤ Use at the first signs of a pimple
❤ Apply to the affected area and blend into the skin
❤ May be applied several times per day if necessary
❤ Follow with Translucent Make-up and Translucent Face Powder to give a flawless finish.  Alternatively use your Normalising Day Oil and/or Melissa Day Cream mixed with Translucent Bronze Concentrate.  Translucent Bronze Concentrate helps to even skin tone.

Note: We don’t use any oil or cream based products on our skin during the night, this is the time that your skin will do most of it’s elimination work, and this natural process needs to function unimpeded.

Night creams impede your skin's natural elimination processes during the night.

Extra Care for Acne, Blemishes or a Combination Skin
These extras do make all the difference!

Once a week complete a Facial Steam Bath and Cleansing Clay Mask, to draw impurities, followed by a Rejuvenating Mask which helps to refine pores and is healing to any new scarring, soothing, calming and cooling – love this product!

On another night of the week cleanse early in the evening and apply Rejuvenating Mask and leave to absorb as long as possible, removing with a warm, moist compress cloth prior to bedtime.

Skin Tips:

  • Lemon juice and warm water first thing, before breakfast, every morning helps to keep skin clear.
  • We promote Hydrate and Compress the skin for softening the pores and enabling a deeper cleanse, however please wash your Compress daily. Check out our ‘Morning Ritual Video’ above. Ideally change your pillow slip daily too.
  • Wash hands frequently and don’t touch your face or pick, because of the bacteria on your hands or under your nails.
  • Don’t use lathering, overly alkaline or harsh exfoliant type cleansers that ‘strip’ the skin resulting in even more oil production by the skin to compensate. These overly harsh cleansers also disrupt the acid mantle of the skin, and the acidic environment of a healthy skin is our protection against bacteria.
  • Drink plenty of water, at least 6-8 glasses daily and eat your 5 servings a day of the freshest fruit and veg, steer clear of fizzy drinks, fatty foods and if you know chocolate and sugary items give you pimples keep away from them.

Tip from Jose, our Esthetician Trainer Manager, “Never ever squeeze”, says Jose, “as this often brings about collapse of the follicle wall and infection in the deeper levels of the skin, which could result in cystic acne”.

Aimee’s Story

It has now been a month since I was introduced to Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, and the results have been astounding! After receiving a personalised assessment of my needs, the Dr. Hauschka Team recommended a daily ritual programme which was customised specifically for me, and worked to target the areas that I was most concerned about. I love that customisation and personalisation underpins the whole process! It’s awesome to know that the products recommended are the best products for my skin condition; I know that I will never again be caught in a situation where I have purchased products which are unsuitable for my skin. I have tried many skin care products before, but I have found none to be as effective as Dr. Hauschka in reducing pore size and blemishes, and in making my skin look and feel a million dollars. And it’s not just me noticing! I now often receive compliments from family, friends, and acquaintances about the obvious changes they can see in my skin. I have not changed my diet or routine, but for the daily use of beautiful Dr Hauschka skin care.

What’s even more exciting is that whilst the changes are evident on the outside, people often don’t realise that I also use Dr. Hauschka body care products for Fibromyalgia pain. Since using Dr. Hauschka Birch Arnica Body Oil and Rosemary Arm and Leg Toner, I have felt a noticeable difference in the degree of pain that I am experiencing. Again this can only be put down to the fabulous organic ingredients which are used in Dr. Hauschka products. After being so dependent on medicinal products to try to alleviate and reduce pain, it is such a welcome change to have found natural products which work so well! I could not rave any higher about the Dr. Hauschka brand, and the Team who are always so contactable and personable. I have truly been converted, and will now only use Dr. Hauschka skin and body care! Thank you for making such remarkable products!
