We understand your combination skin

Melissa Day Cream is calming to any sensitivities, while helping your skin discover its natural balance. Medicinal herb melissa (lemon balm) mediates between dry and oily areas of a Combination Skin. Oily shine is controlled and dry patches are hydrated for a balanced and radiant complexion.

Melissa Day Cream is the ideal skin care product for sensitive combination skin with a tendency toward dryness, shine and redness.

Formulation: Extracts of melissa (lemon balm), daisy, anthyllis, witch hazel and provitamin A rich carrot, soothe and balance. Tapioca starch provides an even, matte appearance.

Combination Skin presents as:

  • Oily in areas, usually the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) with dry or normal patches
  • Fine pores and clear on cheeks, enlarged pores on T-zone
  • May experience pimples in oily T-zone area
  • May be uneven in skin tone with redness
  • May be prone to pimples in oily areas
  • Warmer months are likely to exacerbate a combination skin, whilst in the cooler months it may not be so problematic
  • Longevity of make-up may be compromised in oily T-zone

Melissa Day Cream 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.

TIP for an extra Oily T-Zone:
Apply 1-2 drops Clarifying Day Oil to the T-zone area, then follow with Melissa Day Cream. And yes, that’s right, an oil for an oily skin, like treats like.

Note: Harsh cleansing products that are overly alkaline, lathering and/or harsh exfoliants that ‘strip’ the skin, just result in the skin producing more oil to compensate.

Coverstick 01, 02, 03
Our incredible pimple treatment product Coverstick treats and conceals while working in a speedy manner. It 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 Foundation and Translucent Face Powder to give a flawless finish.  Alternatively use your Clarifying Day Oil and/or Melissa Day Cream mixed with Translucent Bronzing Tint.  Translucent Bronzing Tint helps to even skin tone and gives you a healthy glow.

Every Day – Morning

1) Drink warm water and lemon juice first thing upon waking in the morning and do this every morning. If it’s going to be easier then juice a pile of lemons, put the juice in ice blocks and freeze. Take one block out each night and place in a cup, so you’re ready for the morning. We need to make this habit quick and easy. Aids the body in a clear skin, flushing out toxins, jump starts the digestive tract, aids the liver in its cleansing processes and increases detoxification.

2) Use 5 drops of Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence in your basin cleansing water. We recommend Compress & Hydration + Press & Roll, at the basin, rather than cleansing in your morning shower.

Why do we promote ‘Compress & Hydrate’? 
a) Warming your skin first softens your pores to ensure a much deeper cleanse
b) You will use your cleansing products much more economically
c) Complete by splashing or compressing with cool water after cleansing to activates a minute muscle beside the hair follicle, contraction helps to remove any last remaining dirt
d) Your skin will feel so much softer without the need for harsh exfoliation
e) Check out our Compress & Hydrate + Press & Roll video

We want you to get the best results!

3) Cleansing Cream – ‘press & roll’ technique.

4) Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner – close eyes and mist onto the skin, 3 pumps should do.

5) Day Care – all are highly concentrated so should always be warmed between the palms of the hands and applied to skin still moist from Toner. This ensures even and economical application.

Clarifying Day Oil – to balance and regulate an oily/blemished skin
Melissa Day Cream – for sensitive combination (oily t-zone, dry/normal cheeks) skin
Rose Day Cream Light – for normal or sensitive skin, usually recommended for a younger skin, up to around 35.
Rose Day Cream – rich and highly protective for normal, dry, sensitive, mature skin
Quince Day Cream – cooling, soothing and protective for normal skin or sensitive skin
Tinted Day Cream – tinted moisturiser for normal, dry, sensitive or mature skin
Revitalising Day Cream – for aiding sebaceous activity and guiding skin to a balanced state in a normal, dry, mature/pallid skin
Regenerating Serum & Regenerating Day Cream – specific support for firming a maturing skin

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Every Day – Evening

1) ‘Compress and Hydrate’ skin to soften the pores in readiness for cleansing. Use 5 drops of Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence in the water
2) Soothing Cleansing Milk
3) Apply Renewing Night Conditioner or Sensitive Care Conditioner ampoule.

This is your weekly routine, so repeat until you reach your 28th evening. By which time your skin will be deeply cleansed, nourished, more even toned, soft, radiant and healthy!

Great skin care is about using the highest quality natural and organic products. Eat fresh, nutritious food, drink 6-8 glasses of water daily, 8 hours sleep and put measures in place if you’re stressed – a state of relaxation, happiness and laughter is good for your skin. A 30 minute daily walk in the fresh air is good for your body, mind and soul, in nature if you can.

Mixing Clarifying Clay Mask with water in readiness for application

For those that need it here’s step by step instructions on how to do a Clarifying Steam BathClarifying Clay Mask and Cream Mask for Day 1 which will be repeated once a week during the programme, alternatively there’s full instructions in your product box:

1. Compress and hydrate your skin, cleanse with Soothing Cleansing Milk, remove with the warm, moist Dr. Hauschka Compress Cloth.
2. Place 1 heaped teaspoon of Clarifying Clay Mask in a small container in readiness.
3. Dilute two teaspoons of Clarifying Steam Bath with ½ litre (500ml) of steaming water in a large bowl. Lean over the bowl, covering the head with towel, and steam for 5-10 minutes. Follow with Clarifying Clay Mask application.

Please note: If you don’t wish to steam, then you may do this step with Clarifying Steam Bath and ‘Compress and Hydrate’ instead.

4. While your skin is still warm and moist mix 2 to 2 1/2 teaspoons of water (I use the Clarifying Steam Bath water) to the Clarifying Clay Mask in the small container. The consistency you want is spreadable, not too thin because it will drip off your face and not a paste.

5. Apply mask to your face and neck excluding eye contour area ideally with a mask brush. Apply from the centre of the face outwards. We always work in the direction of lymph flow. Allow to dry, it’s no longer active once dry.

Clarifying Clay Mask Tip: Watch where the clay mask dries first. That’s a good indication that particular area of your face is dehydrated. Are you missing that area with your Day Care? Do you need a richer Day Care product?

6. To remove Clarifying Clay Mask the Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Sponge makes the job quick and easy, but a non white face flannel will do, moistened with the now lukewarm facial steam water. Remove by moistening the mask first, then wiping.

7. Now apply your Cream Mask (Revitalising, Hydrating, Firming or Soothing) including the eye contour area, as an eye mask.

8. Leave on for at least 30 minutes to absorb. I leave mine on for most of the evening. Remove Cream Mask with a warm moist Compress Cloth before bedtime.

9. Apply the contents of a Renewing Night Conditioner Ampoule.

Please note: If you are new to Renewing Night Conditioner ampoules, flick the top to ensure all liquid is in the bottom of the ampoule, then using a towel break off the glass top. Pour 1/2 the contents into the palm of one hand, spread between the palms of the hands and quickly press into the skin and repeat with the balance of the liquid. Apply nothing further to your skin. It’s bedtime.

Note: We do not recommend any heat for a rosacea skin condition – use tepid water for a Compress & Hydrate instead.

Your skin will reward you for the extra effort, it will look radiant, refined and even toned, nourished and pampered. x

Melissa (Lemon Balm)

Melissa-Profile-large

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 page tells you more about Melissa (Lemon Balm), where it comes from, why we use it and what functions it performs in our products.

Melissa-Why-large-PlantRaw material profile

Run your hands through a bunch of strong, green melissa leaves (Melissa officinalis) and you will be treated to a fresh, lemony fragrance. This gentle touch test differentiates the peppermint-shaped leaves from those of mint plants. Lemon balm, as melissa is also known, has a truly unmistakeable fragrance. Freshly plucked from the plant, however, the leaves taste surprisingly harsh and slightly bitter – quite unlike you would expect based on their aroma. The fresh fragrance is created by certain constituents of the plant’s complex essential oil, primarily citronellal, geranial and neral, whereas the taste comes from the natural bitters and tannins. Melissa only contains about 0.3% essential oil, which is therefore classed as one of the most valuable and expensive oils. The area of cultivation, climate and time of harvest all have a strong influence on the overall composition. The tannins, such as rosemarinic acid, chlorogenic and caffeic acid, as well as flavonoids, supplement the leaves’ essential oils.

Melissa-Slider-01

The white petals concealed in the leaf axils open up from July to August. If you take a closer look inside the petals, you will spot the lip which is typical of labiates, the family to which melissa belongs. The petals smell honey sweet, especially in contrast to the lemony leaves.

Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 10.50.48 AM

Melissa-Why-large

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

Melissa touches our hearts. When growing, it forms a spherical shape to create a protected inner area in which the delicate petals can flourish. It radiates a sense of protection and warmth. We primarily focus on its leaves; its petals remain in the background. Each leaf is heart-shaped and forms a mediating centre between the two polar plant elements of the roots and the petals. With its pronounced centre, melissa is a master of balance and transfers this strength to our bodies. It helps imbalanced skin to rediscover its inner harmony.

Melissa Day Cream

Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 11.10.12 AM

Melissa Day Cream balances areas of dry and oily skin to restore sensitive combination skin’s natural equilibrium. Melissa has a harmonising effect and stimulates the skin’s natural activities. Anthyllis and witch hazel help to standardise the skin’s rhythm. Carrot extract soothes the skin and helps it discover its own centre. A balanced complexion free from shine is the result.

Melissa-Slider-02

“This remedy makes the heart joyful.” These were the words used by the Benedictine nun, Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) to describe Melissa.

Melissa-Slider-03

The Carmelites of the French Abbey St. Juste added Melissa to their Carmelite water, which they manufactured under the name ‘Eau de Carnes’ for Charles V of France (1338-1380) as a remedy for threatening colds and gastrointestinal problems.

Melissa-Slider-04

Bees love the fragrance of Melissa and associate it with ample sources of food. They produce a gland secretion that smells similar to Melissa and use this to mark the feeding areas that are rich in nectar or pollen. The plant’s name reflects this close relationship in Greek, Melissa = honey bee.

Screen Shot 2016-05-23 at 10.45.32 AM

Melissa-Origin-large

Origin, cultivation and processing

Most of the melissa used in Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products is only grown a kilometre away from WALA/Dr. Hauschka. Staff at the Sonnenhof Farm, our own Demeter farm, cultivate the melissa plants using careful manual procedures and in line with biodynamic farming methods. They monitor the plants closely and harvest the melissa leaves just before they start to blossom. They then use warmed external air to carefully dry the fresh leaves at the farm itself at temperatures that are always kept below 40°C. This preserves most of the essential oil. WALA mixes the dried melissa leaves with pure, organic plant oil. The melissa and the oil are then left to mature for a week in line with a proprietary, rhythmic procedure. During this phase, the compound is heated to 37°C – human body temperature. It is carefully mixed every morning and evening to enable the melissa to transfer all its benefits to the oil.

Melissa originally comes from the Eastern Mediterranean region and Western Asia. Rather than extremely arid or extremely damp conditions, it prefers a climate that is warm but not too hot. It has been known as a medicinal plant and spice since back in antiquity. WALA has specially developed an extract from the leaves, which is soothing and balancing.

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.

Cream Masks for a skin boost

Screen Shot 2015-04-07 at 1.37.25 pm

Masks that make a difference!

Cream Mask Tips: 

a) With all Dr. Hauschka Cream Masks you may wish to cleanse and tone early in the evening, applying Cream Mask and leave on to absorb all evening, removing with a warm, moist cloth prior to bedtime.
b) All Cream Masks may also be used by mixing a little in with your usual Dr. Hauschka Day Care for a one month skin boost.
c) Make sure you include mask application to eye contour area too, as an eye mask.
d) We recommend use of Cream Masks once or twice a week.

Revitalising Mask
For all skin conditions, our most versatile cream mask
Soothes, enlivens and refines all skin conditions

In just 30 minutes, Rejuvenating 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. Love this mask!

Tip: Revitalising Mask is absolutely the mask you choose to use before a special event.

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. Rich in vitamin E wheat germ oil and rich in provitamin A carrot root extract. Formulation also includes borage, think cooling blue and calming of redness. Applying this mask will help you to feel pampered and offer your skin a sense of well-being.

Hydrating Mask
For dry, sensitive and mature skin
Moisturises and replenishes dry and/or dehydrated skin

Offers your skin a sense of safety and security.  It imparts moisture-retaining qualities to dry, sensitive and mature skin. The blend of botanicals soothes, protects and revitalises while sealing in moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and supple. Applying this mask offers rich protection for your skin.

Formulation: Quince seed extract replenishes and helps dry skin to retain moisture. Nourishing almond, avocado and jojoba oils hydrate the outer layer of skin while rose wax and organic shea butter soothe and protect.

Tips:
a) For a super nourishing and uplifting Mask treatment after cleansing apply Regenerating Serum generously then apply Hydrating Mask and leave to absorb as long as possible. Make sure you include eye contour area too as an eye mask.
b) For a ‘parched’ dry and/or dehydrated skin use Hydrating Mask as your day cream for a month as a boost.

Firming Mask
For mature skin
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.

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care 2014; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik 2014

Soothing Mask
For sensitive, hypersensitive, irritated and stressed skin
Calming and soothing

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 strengthen and 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.

Tip: To help manage the skin condition, rosacea (inflammation of the capillaries) we recommend Soothing Mask be used as a Day Cream as well as a Mask Treatment once to twice a week.
