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

DAILY RITUAL FOR A COMBINATION SKIN 

MORNING

We highly recommend Clarifying Steam Bath, Clarifying Clay Mask followed by Revitalising Mask once a week. On another night of the week Revitalising Mask for optimum results in achieving your healthy, radiant and balanced skin.

Seasonal treatment: particularly recommended in the two most transitional seasons of the year, spring and autumn, Renewing Night Conditioner ampoule for 28 nights (skin cell cycle is approximately 28 days) instead of Toner

Alternatively to strengthen sensitivity use a Sensitive Care Conditioner ampoule instead of Toner for 28 nights.

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.

Which Moisturiser is the best choice for you?

Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 10.18.45 AM

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.

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.

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.

Sensitive Skin

Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 12.20.49 pm

Did you know? Many people suffer from sensitive skin. According to a report by the American Academy of Dermatology at least 50% of women and 30% of men.

Sensitive skin can feel dry and tight. Redness may be prevalent as well. Very dry skin falls under the sensitive banner as it’s often suffering from water/hydration loss and a weakened natural barrier function.

Sensitive skin is in need of strengthening and protection

Fine-pored, thin-skinned, extremely low oil content, highly dehydrated, premature wrinkles, feels tight, redness, tendency to become inflamed and develop eczema, reactive.

What causes sensitivities

  • Skin disorders or allergic skin reactions such as eczema, or allergic contact dermatitis
  • Overly dry or injured skin that can no longer protect nerve endings, leading to skin reactions
  • Excessive exposure to skin, damaging environmental factors such as sun, wind, excessive heat or cold
  • Use of harsh skin products, exfoliation via beads, acids such as AHA and BHA’s, scrubs, overly alkaline and/or lathering cleansers
  • Harsh skin treatments such as dermabrasion

Sensitive skin often appears red, irritated and in need of soothing, calming, stabilising and strengthening care.

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care offers sensitive skin gentle yet powerful products that de-stress skin, working quickly to support, strengthen and stabilise the skin’s barrier function. Our products minimise the appearance of redness, couperose and dilated capillaries. Skin becomes calm and more resilient, able to protect itself and maintain an even, balanced, smooth complexion.

We usually recommend Rose Day Cream for a sensitive skin, ingredient St. John’s wort is calming and soothing, rose is balancing, harmonising and strengthens dilated capillaries while beeswax, carnauba wax, precious rose flower wax and shea butter is highly protective against the elements. By mixing a little Revitalising Mask with your Rose Day Cream it becomes more cooling and soothing. Rose Day Cream Light may also be used. Rose is, however, a warming ingredient.

If you there’s heat in your skin you may find Quince Day Cream is the better choice. Quince is a cooling ingredient.

Regenerating Serum is formulated for sensitive skin.

Soothing Mask is a must, twice weekly, as is regular treatments with Sensitive Care Conditioner and/or Soothing Intensive Treatment. You may also use Soothing Mask as your day cream for a one-month skin strengthening boost.

If you’re also experiencing extreme dryness and/or dehydration then incorporate Hydrating Mask into your skin regime also.

Screen Shot 2015-06-11 at 12.29.30 pm

Why Dr. Hauschka doesn’t recommend night creams:

  • While you sleep your skin is actually hard at work regenerating, balancing oil production and expelling impurities.
  • Application of night creams interferes with these essential tasks, and over time skin becomes less able to care for itself. Use of night cream also signals the sebaceous glands to cut down on moisture production, resulting in drier skin!

Dry/Dehydrated Skin

Your skin is unique

You and your skin cannot be rigidly pigeon-holed. You need the right care concepts for different days, your week environment maybe quite different from your weekend environment, different seasons and different stages of life. At Dr.Hauschka, we therefore refer to skin conditions, which appear and disappear, rather than fixed skin types.

Dry or Dehydrated – what’s the difference?

The Only Ingredients Your Skin Needs

Screen Shot 2015-04-07 at 1.37.25 pm

The experts at Dr. Hauschka Skin Care understand your skin. We know both what it needs and doesn’t need for a healthy, radiant appearance.

What your skin needs

  • Since 1967, we have been crafting natural and organic skin care products and we have identified over one hundred highly potent plants that guide your skin to a balanced state.
  • We know exactly which botanicals and combinations of botanicals will best deliver the visible transformation you’re looking to see.
  • Every ingredient that goes into a Dr. Hauschka Skin Care product has an important job to do. Whether delivering essential moisture, encouraging resilience or improving efficacy, each ingredient is carefully selected for its particular effects and its interaction with the whole composition.
  • We only include the ingredients you need for long-lasting skin health and beauty and we only include fragrance from pure botanical essential oils to stimulate your senses and inspire feelings that uplift, relax or energise.

What Your Skin Doesn’t Need

  • Filler ingredients that serve no purpose to your skin
  • Harsh abrasives and “quick fixes” that disrupt your skin’s natural processes
  • Harsh, overly alkaline or lathering cleansers
  • Synthetic chemical ingredients

Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 2.41.14 pm

The Importance Of Using Natural Beauty Products

Our skin is the largest organ in our body, it’s semi-permeable and therefore absorbs many product ingredients to the tiny blood vessels below the skin and then into the bloodstream.
On a daily basis, we apply face skin care, deodorant, body moisturiser, tanning products, sun protection, hair care including styling products, make-up and that’s just the morning routine. It’s not difficult to use up to 20 products daily!

  • Synthetic, man-made chemical products are essentially foreign bodies to the skin and, therefore, are over time stressors to the skin.
  • For our health and well-being, all products we place on the skin should be made from the highest quality natural, biodynamic and organic ingredients.
  • What you put on your skin affects both the health of your skin and your body.
  • Knowing this, you would want to use only the highest quality ingredients from nature.
  • The finest natural and organic ingredients support healthy and balanced skin function and a healthy skin doesn’t suffer from premature ageing either.

The ingredients you put on your skin, face and body, do matter

We know to feed our body nutritious, and wherever possible, organic food and it’s the same for your skin care, we’ve transformed nature’s ingredients to make natural and organic skin care convenient and easy to use – ingredients that your skin understands.

Dr. Hauschka Biodynamic Medicinal Plant Garden
Dr. Hauschka Biodynamic Medicinal Plant Garden

Unique in skin care philosophy

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

If you have an oily skin you may be tempted to use harsh cleansing products that ‘strip’ the skin, this just results in your skin producing more oil to compensate. Clarifying Day Oil is a lightweight, rapidly absorbed oil, that helps to calm, balance and regulate oily skin. Yes, oil for an oily skin!

We’re absolutely against the use of night creams. During the night your skin regenerates and eliminates, and heavy, occlusive night creams impede this natural process of the skin. Sleeping isn’t ageing. Creams should only be used to protect and nourish your skin during the day time. Use of eye cream at night usually causes puffy eyes in the morning. For night time we use botanical extracts in a watery solution. One month of no night cream and you will see the difference!

Also we understand your skin has differing cleansing needs at each end of the day, therefore we have different morning and evening cleansing products that are both effective and gentle to your skin. Our morning cleanser is a deep cleansing almond meal preparation due to the overnight elimination activity of your skin while cleansing in the evening is to clean the dirt and dust your skin picks up during the day and to remove make-up and eye make-up.

Regenerating Range to support a maturing skin

How do you know authentic natural and organic ingredients in the total formulation?

What percentage of the ingredients in natural cosmetics are organic? What are the minimum standards and the maximum values? Furthermore: how can you describe the high quality of a product other than through its material properties – its finely tuned composition, its more than biochemical effect?

Our entire skin care and make-up is certified with the BDIH seal for ‘certified natural cosmetics’ and/or the international quality seal for natural and organic cosmetics ‘NATRUE’. The NATRUE standard distinguishes between natural cosmetics, natural cosmetics with at least 70% organic ingredients and natural cosmetics with at least 95% organic ingredients. The term ‘natural skin care’ alone is neither legally protected nor defined on a binding basis. At NATRUE you can find the certifications given to each individual Dr. Hauschka product. Look for the NATRUE label for a guarantee that products are as natural as can be! This provides consumer transparency and it’s our guarantee our products are free from synthetic chemical fragrances, colours and preservatives, mineral oils, petrochemicals, parabens, silicones and PEG.

Our preference is for biodynamic/Demeter certified, organic or responsibly wild harvested ingredients. If an organic version of a raw material is not yet available on the global market, we initiate organic or biodynamic growing projects.

There is more to quality than good raw materials

Our recipes depend on the highest quality natural and organic raw materials – but also on the care with which they were grown and processed. By using Demeter farming, we gain medicinal plant extracts that are high in vitality to pass onto your skin. The ingredients come together to form complex compositions made up of more than just the sum of their components. Only when their ingredients interact and are supported by our rhythmic manufacturing procedure do our products take on their unique quality that enables them to stimulate the skin’s natural activity.

The result: a healthy, strengthened, balanced, regulated and radiant skin!

P.S. We have never tested on animals, we test on happy to help out human volunteers.

Which Moisturiser is right for you?

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.
