“I finally found what I was looking for!”

When I was first introduced to Dr Hauschka Skin Care I was working as a Product Specialist for a major retailer looking after the Skin Care Department. So you could say I have tried them all!

My question regarding Dr. Hauschka was “Why would this one be so different, to the rest of them?”

I was asked to try it for myself and not to use anything on my skin at night.

Now this goes against everything I was taught as a Beauty Therapist.

I was in my early thirties at the time and covering up acne scarring from my teenage years with theatre make-up.

Going into week 4 of only using Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products on one particular day my husband asked if I was wearing make-up? I replied, “No, I only have a Tinted Moisturiser on!”

He said “Your skin is looking so good.”

From that day onwards, and now 15 years later, I haven’t looked back. I now know wholeheartedly, and heading towards my fifties, an all-natural, organic and biodynamic Dr. Hauschka, less is more approach, gives me the results.

I can now say “I finally found what I was looking for.”

5 Reasons to take special care of your neck and décolleté

Most of us are in a good routine with our morning cleanse, tone and moisturise ritual for our face, but are you taking the best care of your neck and décolleté? Here are the reasons you need to.

 

1) Skin in these areas produces less oil than on your face, and neglecting it may result in premature ageing.

2) Skin is thinner, with a lower adipose tissue compared to your face, which makes it prone to dehydration and dryness.

3) Side sleepers particularly may notice wrinkles on their décolleté, making it even more important to nourish and restore this area daily.

4) The angle of your décolleté to the sun may mean full UV exposure. Apply a physical barrier (zinc and/or titanium dioxide) sunscreen to protect against sun damage.

5) Neck and décolleté are exposed to environmental influences, so daily protection is required from the dehydrating and drying effects of air conditioning, pollution, sun, wind etc.

How to care for your Neck & Décolleté

1) Morning ritual: Cleanse neck and décolleté, tone, apply intensive specific care Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Cream to protect, nourish, tone and firm.

2) Apply a physical barrier (zinc and/or titanium dioxide) sunscreen and remember to reapply.

3) Evening ritual: Cleanse, tone and apply oil-free night care, Regenerating Serum.

Neck & Décolleté Treatment TIP: After cleansing and toning warm around a large pea size of Hydrating Mask between the palms of your hands and gently press onto neck and décolleté. Leave to absorb as long as possible, removing with a tepid moist cloth.

Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Cream

firms, tones and smoothes

As we age, the skin’s natural processes of renewal begin to slow and skin loses elasticity. Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Cream supports the skin’s natural regenerative functions. Skin is hydrated, refined and revitalised for a smoother, more supple appearance. Wrinkles are visibly diminished and skin looks and feels firmer.

Formulation

  • Highly regenerative and phytoestrogen rich red clover, powerful antioxidant acerola berries and whole pomegranate* are blended with rose extract to support natural skin renewal, enhance skin tone and support elasticity.
  • Ancient field horsetail, a plant rich in bioavailable silica, fortifies and firms the skin.
  • Witch hazel distillate and marsh mallow leaf extract support the skin’s moisture balance.
  • Rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants are nourishing coconut, argan, jojoba, sesame, sweet almond, macadamia and sunflower oils.
  • Shea butter and beeswax protect your skin without being occlusive.

*Pomegranates, an age-defying ingredient

• We process the whole pomegranate fruit, including the peel for our products, obtaining a preparation that promotes regeneration of the skin.

• Pomegranate peel is an important ingredient because its extract inhibits an enzyme that is responsible for the breakdown of collagen in ageing skin.

• At the same time, the extract activates an enzyme that’s involved in the production of collagen.

• Pomegranate seed oil contained in the whole-fruit extract stimulates cell division in the keratinocytes, cells which produce the important skin-strengthening protein keratin.

The aromatic composition of Regenerating Hand Cream

Interview with Jörg Zimmermann

A special fragrance is created for each and every Dr. Hauschka product. Our in-house perfume specialist, Jörg Zimmermann, only works with purely natural fragrances from essential oils. We do not use synthetic chemical fragrances whatsoever.

Discover what inspired Jörg when developing the composition for Regenerating Hand Cream.

What role does fragrance play for you in a skin care product?

I sometimes compare the un-fragranced cream to a blank canvas. This acts as the ground where ‘Heaven’ and ‘Earth’ meet. Life already exists but the enlivening element is only added by the fragrance. The relationship that we build with the fragrance is often such a close one that it creates a certain sense of yearning. I ask myself what this cream needs and what I can do to give it a special personality. I wanted to take all of the things already contained in the basic composition of Regenerating Hand Cream and use positive synergies to enhance and sublimate them; to use the fragrance to extend beyond the product and enthuse. The fragrance gives the Hand Cream its own, unmistakeable language.

Is the fragrance meant to trigger something specific?

I’d instead say that it’s a motif that I want to make perceptible. Ideas, experiences and olfactory memories come together to form sensations and a certain atmosphere. Just as a sensory experience is made up of many different facets, a fragrance expresses a new material character through its novel combination of essential oils. I deploy my experience, intuition and imagination to check the use of the essential oils and slowly build up a picture, a fine impression. During this process, it is important to form transitions, a progression through the senses, a metamorphosis. The fragrance develops in front of you, from its head notes to its base ones, bringing part of the idea to life.

How would you describe the fragrance of Regenerating Hand Cream?

The products in the Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Skin Care range have been developed for demanding, mature skin. I quickly realised that Regenerating Hand Cream needed to have a very refined and rich fragrance. To preserve the close connection to other products from the Regenerating Skin Care range, I opted for an ambery basic note, which is already perceptible in Regenerating Body Cream and Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream. The ambery note comprises a mixture of warm, balsamic substances, which allow an association with amber and create a velvety depth. Vetiver, vanilla, sandalwood… are essential oils hidden within this. If you hold amber up to the sunlight, you will see a warm, enveloping shade that evokes a great sense of wellbeing. This note is in part the ‘basic tone’, which runs through the fragrance like a thread.

You can find the ambery fragrance family in the luxury segment of niche perfumery but also in the conventional sector. Most of the fragrances have sensual, oriental tones that remind us of Arabia. In the midst of these oriental jewels, the sensual rose appears as through from a garden from One Thousand and One Nights.

First Love

Limited edition special size Cleansing Cream & Rose Day Cream

When the first Dr. Hauschka products appeared on the market in 1967, the concept of a natural skin care range that promotes healthy skin was something entirely new.

Now, in 2017, Dr. Hauschka is celebrating its 50th Anniversary. As a thank you, we are offering Cleansing Cream and Rose Day Cream in limited edition larger anniversary sizes with 17% savings.

Cleansing Cream

The delicate aroma and pure, fresh feel it gives to the skin have made our Cleansing Cream a customer favourite for many years. The concentrated ‘cream’ is recommended for cleansing any skin condition and the perfect choice for a deep cleanse in the morning after the night time elimination activities of your skin. The lipid-replenishing composition with calendula, chamomile, St. John’s wort, anthyllis and almond gently invigorates and cleanses the skin. The appearance of pores is minimised.

Cleansing Cream
100 ml limited edition also with FREE tube squeezer

  • Refines, revitalises and deeply cleanses all skin conditions.
  • Gentle and effective morning cleanser for deep cleansing after the skin’s night time eliminating activities.
  • Respects the pH (acid mantle) protective function, and hydrolipid layer of skin while cleansing.
  • Almond meal binds particularly well to dirt and impurities.
  • Gently exfoliates only those skin cells that are ready to slough off.
  • Fortifies and refreshes.
  • Prepares skin for Toner and Moisturiser.
  • Minimises the appearance of pores.
  • Leaves skin feeling soft and silky.
  • Highest quality medicinal plant extracts of calendula, chamomile, anthyllis and creamy sweet almond meal.
  • Benefits all skin conditions

Calendula: healing
Chamomile: soothing and calming
Anthyllis: guides all skin conditions to a state of balance
Almond Meal: binds particularly well to dirt and impurities

Application: Compress and hydrate skin. Mix 1-2 cm of Cleansing Cream with warm water in the palms to form a smooth, creamy emulsion. Press mixture gently onto skin then roll hands up and away in a wave-like motion – ‘press and roll’. Start in the centre of the forehead then slowly work outward and down. Avoid the eye area. Repeat the press and roll action 2-3 times. Do not rub or scrub. Rinse with warm water then finish with splashes of cool water.

Note: Should you feel your skin needs a secondary deep cleanse in the evening with Cleansing Cream after Soothing Cleansing Milk, you may do so.

Usual size: Cleansing Cream 50ml

Bridget Malcolm Swears By Dr. Hauschka

For Bridget the answer was simple, the product that she trusts to give her skin top-notch care is Dr. Hauschka. “Every day I always moisturise, always! I always cleanse, tone and moisturise. I always use a serum, a moisturiser and an oil and that’s all Dr. Hauschka — I love it! That brand I love,” Bridget told us excitedly. “It’s all organic and I really trust their ingredients, and it makes my skin look good.”

Skin Care Concept

As a result, we have developed individual skin care plans for the various different skin conditions. All of these share the commonality of three skin care steps at night (cleanse, tone and revitalise with serum) and the nourishing trio in the morning. This trio of cleansing, toning and moisturising is optimally tailored to the skin’s morning and day time needs. Cleansing removes the excess metabolic products that the skin has excreted over night. In the second skin care step, aqueous medicinal plant preparations tone the skin while a select daytime skin care product moisturises it and protects it against environmental influences during the day.

But that’s not all. You make as much of a difference to the success of your skin care as the Dr. Hauschka products themselves. “People need two kinds of beauty – inner and outer.” Elisabeth Sigmund, co-founder of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, was well aware of this. It all starts with the way in which you use the Dr. Hauschka products and establish a dialogue with both these and your skin. After all, the key to your beauty lies in paying yourself some attention.

Interview with Barbara Becheru

Face Care Product Manager at WALA Heilmittel GmbH and Dr. Hauschka esthetician, about the special use of Dr. Hauschka daytime skin care

Barbara, you are both a product manager and a Dr. Hauschka esthetician. That’s quite unusual. How did it come about?

I had an eye-opening experience during a Dr. Hauschka skin care treatment. As the Dr. Hauschka esthetician was treating my face, she commented that my feet were often cold. She could see this in my face! At the time, I was already a Dr. Hauschka product manager but the further training enabled me to delve deeper into the Dr. Hauschka product and treatment cosmos. In doing so, I realised that our treatment and our products simply belong together. After all, Elisabeth Sigmund, co-founder of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, initially developed the products in her beauty studio for treating her customers.

So can I only use Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products with the aid of an esthetician?

No, of course not. It’s far more about doing something good for yourself with your everyday skin care; giving yourself a treatment and paying yourself some attention. It’s all to do with self-appreciation and self-care. And that begins in the morning with a special kind of facial cleansing. The basic product for this is Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream with almond meal and medicinal plant extracts. It’s applied in a unique press and roll manner (see video below) and acts as an example of how closely our products are linked to our treatment.

What exactly do you mean by a cleansing product that is linked to the treatment?

Lymph stimulation plays a central role in the Dr. Hauschka treatment. We use brushes and our hands to activate the lymph flow in the lymphatic system. This is a kind of cleansing system in the body, which excretes excess metabolic products for example. We therefore use lymph stimulation to support the skin with its natural activities, keep it healthy and cleanse it.

But what has lymph stimulation got to do with facial cleansing at home?

By correctly applying the Cleansing Cream, you can stimulate the lymph flow in your skin. To do this, roll your hands from the top to the bottom of your face and from the centre outwards in the direction of lymph flow. The combination of the product and manner of application result in a cleansed complexion. It may initially take you slightly longer to use the product as the movements will be new to you. However, the time I take during this process is time that gives me something back.

The Dr. Hauschka skin care regime for mornings comprises three steps. Cleansing is followed with the second step of toning.

That’s right. The toning products are aqueous medicinal plant preparations, such as Facial Toner. What makes this special is that you spray it directly onto your face rather than onto a cotton pad as you would a conventional toner. Even the delicate mist of spray feels delightful. I then use my hands to gently press the product into my skin.

A further lovely way of being in touch with myself and a kind of self-treatment?

Exactly. These are the little daily rituals, the periods of time-out from everyday life, my five minutes that are mine alone. This time in the bathroom allows me to enjoy some mindfulness and consciously breathe in and exhale.

That almost sounds like a yoga workout. But I still need to start my day and I’ve not yet done the third step – moisturising.

Yes, and this is a very important step as the daytime skin care protects the skin against external influences such as the wind or dry air from air conditioning systems. It can do this through the high-quality oils and waxes that form the basis of the products. However, our daytime skin care products do more than just protect the skin. Each composition is also carefully tailored to the skin’s changing needs thanks to special medicinal plant extracts, helping it to restore its natural balance.

What do you mean ‘changing needs’? Isn’t my skin always the same? Either dry or sensitive for example?

When I talk to customers before a treatment, I’ve often noticed that they can precisely describe how their skin feels. Whether it is taut or perhaps unsettled or oily. What is interesting is that this feeling may have changed by their next treatment appointment. In winter, for example, the skin tends to be drier, or at stressful times of life, it tends to become more blemished. Depending on the skin’s varying needs, we can offer the right daytime skin care to help regulate it.

Is there also a special way of applying the daytime skin care products?

We warm the moisturising product between the palms of the hands, to melt the waxes, and apply to skin, still moist from Toner, using the palms of both hands and apply from centre outwards in direction of lymph flow and/or press gently into your skin. This is the correct way to apply and it’s a more sensual and emotional experience by paying proper attention to yourself, feeling in touch with yourself while applying the products and immersing yourself in the way you feel. The natural scent of the products furthermore conveys moods. Each morning, the same delicate scent fills my nose and gives me the space I need to enjoy my skin care. That is my daily ritual. The Dr. Hauschka products are so much more.
