1) Drink warm water and lemon juice first thing every morning
Helps keep your skin looking clear and your eyes bright, add some organic apple cider vinegar as well. Aids hydration and digestion and helps flush toxins from the body.
Drink at least 6-8 glasses of water or herbal teas daily to keep your skin plump and hydrated.
2) Compress and Hydrate
Compress and hydrate your skin prior to cleansing with Organic Cotton Compress. This softens pores enabling a much deeper cleanse, and you’ll use your Cleansing Cream and Soothing Cleansing Milk more economically as well on hydrated skin.
Remember to complete your cleanse with 2-3 cold water splashes or a cold compress. This simple technique activates a tiny muscle beside the hair follicle ensuring any remaining dirt is washed away and your skin will reward you by feeling silky soft without harsh exfoliation.
It really is worth that extra 2 minutes, try it out for a month (skin cell cycle) and see how your skin feels and looks.

3) Get a good night’s sleep.
It really is beauty sleep. Try to go to bed and get up at the same time each day to support your body’s rhythms.
No night cream, which impedes your skin’s natural elimination and regeneration phase.
4) Incorporate relaxation and self care into your life.
Make little changes, dance or do yoga in your living room instead of watching TV. Lose yourself in a good book, a recent study found reading reduced stress by a whopping 68% and listening to music 61%.
Have a regular Dr. Hauschka Facial Treatment with a Dr. Hauschka trained Esthetician. Time seems to stand still while you immerse yourself in this ‘so much more than a facial’ treatment. Your skin looks radiant, you’re feeling calm, deeply relaxed with a sense of lightness and inner balance.
5) Go for a walk
Walk, jog or cycle every morning for 30 minutes. If you have a friend that could join in, all the better, you’ll encourage each other.
Benefits: fresh morning air, movement supports your lymph system therefore your immune system, uplifts your mood, clears your mind, increases blood circulation and oxygenation, strengthens bones and muscles, increases metabolism, increases energy levels…
6) Mask treatments
into your skin care regime to really make a difference.

7) Invest in a quality set of brushes
Look after your brushes and wash them weekly with an eco friendly gentle hand wash liquid. Always dry your brushes laying flat, preferably in sunlight, you don’t want any moisture or soap getting into the head of the brush as it will compromise the glue.
