Dr. Hauschka Natural & Organic Skin Care Regime 

More and more men are coming to value great skin care. However, they want a skin care regime that’s easy and doesn’t take a lot of time – one that achieves its goal in just a few steps. The co-ordinated skin care plan by Dr. Hauschka offers men a 3 Step Day Care and 3 Step Night Care regime. With a range of selected Dr. Hauschka products which complement each other perfectly, men don’t have to wait long for results that can be seen and felt.

Naturally simple and effective

All Dr. Hauschka face care products complement each other, forming a harmonised 3 Step Day Care regime.

Cleansing Toning Moisturising
Facial cleansing removes dirt and dead skin cells without drying the skin. It serves as the cornerstone of our holistic skin care concept. Toning activates the skin’s innate processes, leaving the complexion clear and radiant. The right day cream protects the skin. As the third step after cleansing and moisturising, it completes our skin care regime.

3 Step Day Care 

Cleansing Cleansing Cream Invigorates and cleanses; noticeable moisturising effects
Toning After Shave Clarifying Toner Invigorating aftershave – refreshing and soothing, feels great on freshly shaved skin. Echinacea has anti-bacterial properties and Daisy has anti-inflammatory properties. Just close eyes and mist onto skin.
Moisturising Daily Hydrating Eye Cream Keeps delicate skin around the eyes hydrated, helping to prevent premature wrinkles.
Quince Day Cream
or
For Normal Skin.  Guys love the fresh Quince fragrance. Quince Wax protects the skin and Quince Seed extract prevents moisture loss. Cooling and soothing.
Melissa Day Cream
or
Formulated for a Sensitive Combination (oily t-zone, dry/normal cheeks) Skin with a matte finish. Smoothes, harmonises and reduces shine.
Revitalising Day Cream Our lightest texture day cream, yet most activating for a Dry Skin. Refreshing and moisturising.

For an Oily/Blemished skin then choose Clarifying Day Oil instead of a cream moisturiser to regulate oil production. Apply Coverstick to pimples to conceal and treat with just the right amount of tea tree and manuka oils for their anti-bacterial properties and tapioca starch to absorb.

Tip: Guys also like our Translucent Bronzing Tint mixed with their moisturiser to help even skin tone and give skin a healthy sun-kissed look. This isn’t make-up guys, just a concentrated tint.

Who knew? The Beauty Benefits of Toner

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 11.12.02 am

Dr. Hauschka Toners are the hidden gems of our skin care regime. Yes, we know they’re often skipped for one reason or another, and they may not be considered as imperative in your morning and evening skin care rituals, however, Dr. Hauschka Toners are not like conventional toners that are used with cotton pads to remove last traces of make-up and cleanser. Just close your eyes and mist directly onto your skin.

8 Reasons Why You Should Be Including Dr. Hauschka Toner In Your Skin Care Rituals

1) Our Toners are packed with botanical actives to benefit your skin, to regulate and keep it healthy, to refine and calm your skin.

2) Toner is the first step to hydrating your skin, helping your skin to maintain elasticity.

3) Toner aids absorption of your Moisturiser in the morning.

4) Toner is also your night-time treatment product and aids absorption of Night Serum or Regenerating Serum.

5) Toner ensures our highly concentrated Moisturisers (or Day Oil) are applied evenly and economically. Our Day Care products are specifically formulated to be applied to skin that’s still moist from Toner.

6) Dr. Hauschka Toners are not drying to the skin.*

7) Toner may be used to set your make-up and give a more natural look.

8) Toner may be used to hydrate the skin at any time during the day and is also useful to hydrate in flight. We all keep a bottle in our desk drawer!

Note: Dr. Hauschka Toner is a perfect after shave product as well!

Tip: In the heat of summer we pop our Toners in the fridge for a super cooling and refreshing spritz when needed.

Dr. Hauschka Toners

Anthyllis harvest
Anthyllis harvest

Facial Toner contains Anthyllis, one of our key ingredients, which guides all skin conditions to a state of balance and strength. Witch Hazel bark and leaf extract for astringent capabilities, helping to refine the complexion.

Echinacea harvest
Echinacea harvest

Clarifying Toner contains Daisy and Nasturtium to minimise the appearance of blackheads and blemishes, visibly refine pores and reduce excessive oiliness. Anthyllis to balance your skin for a calm, even appearance. Calendula is healing, Echinacea has anti-bacterial properties, Daisy is anti-inflammatory, Horse Chestnut bark extract strengthens the walls of the blood vessels and promotes the circulation and also removes excess fluid from the tissues and makes them firmer and Witch Hazel for it’s astringent benefits.

Do you have dry/maturing skin?

Dryness and dehydration usually are found hand in hand, Toner takes care of hydration and it also helps your Regenerating products, which are specific in supporting a maturing skin, absorb into the skin where they do their work to firm and tone.

Do you have sensitive skin?

Toner hydrates, calms and strengthens your skin. In Clarifying Toner, Daisy has anti-inflammatory and Echinacea has anti-bacterial properties. Sometimes a sensitive, flakey skin has had it’s protective abilities compromised.

*FAQ – Why do some Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products contain alcohol?

Herbs and flowers are the core of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care preparations and many are extracted in a mixture of alcohol and water. Many plants are extracted in alcohol because it extracts the widest variety of plant constituents (the plant’s active ingredients). Alcohol also serves as a natural emulsifier, preservative and carrier, and helps ingredients penetrate the skin.

Our alcohol is not drying to the skin when part of a carefully formulated Dr. Hauschka composition, it’s derived from a fermentation and distillation process from organically grown wheat and is gluten-free. It helps eliminate the need for synthetic preservatives, tones and firms the skin. The amounts of alcohol used in the Dr.Hauschka products are regulated to prevent dryness occurring. Isopropyl alcohol is never used in Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products.

And finally…

Using Toner prior to Cream Mask application aids absorption

Once or twice a week you need the extra benefits that a Cream Mask endows, best to aid absorption of these complex formulations with Toner prior to application. Revitalising Mask is our top seller, no doubt because it benefits all skin conditions, refining and rejuvenating, Hydrating Mask for its super plumping hydrating and deeply moisturising ability, Firming Mask to support a maturing skin with warming Rose in all its forms and Soothing Mask which is a formula with an abundance of botanical ingredients, for strengthening a sensitive, hypersensitive, red, irritated or flaky skin. Soothing Mask has also proved helpful in managing a rosacea skin condition, used as a day cream in this instance.

Why is there no Dr.Hauschka night cream?

The Dr. Hauschka oil-free night care regime supports the nocturnal metabolism of the skin because this is the time when this activity is at its maximum. Instead of burdening the natural elimination processes with oily skin care products, the Dr. Hauschka night care programme consists of products containing stimulating and regenerating plant essences. These allow the skin to breathe freely and overcome any weaknesses and imbalances. Healthy and beautiful skin is the result.

Dr. Hauschka Treatment products for the night are:
– Basic Night Care: Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner and Regenerating Serum (if appropriate to support a maturing skin)
– OR Intensive 30 night treatment: Renewing Night Conditioner or Sensitive Care Conditioner or one of our Intensive Treatments for specific skin concerns

Rule of thumb to keep it simple: 
Use Conditioner in Spring (September) and Autumn (March)
Use Intensive Treatment in Summer (December) and Winter (June)
In between use Toner (and Regenerating Serum if appropriate)

However, ideally Conditioners should be used once per year per 10 years of life, e.g. if 30 years old do 3 Conditioner 28 day treatments per year.

Plant Profile: Witch Hazel

Snapping Hazel, Winter Bloom, Spotted Alder, Tobacco Wood

Witch Hazel – Hamamelis virginiana

Description
This shrub, which can grow into a tree up to 8 meters high, appears bewitched in many ways. In the autumn, when most of nature begins to rest, fragrant yellow flowers with narrow, ribbonlike petals, appear between the hazelnut-like leaves like harbingers of spring, enveloping all the branches like small stars. The longish fruits, angular at the top, do not mature until the following summer to autumn so that the shrub bears fruits and flowers at the same time. When the fruit reaches full maturity it bursts open at the top scattering its seeds to a distance of several meters.

Uses
Hamamelis has astringent, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Witch hazel is used for poorly healing wounds, vein care, hemorrhoids, varicose veins and atopic dermatitis.

Interesting Facts
The name hamamelis is made up of the ancient Greek words “hama” meaning simultaneously and “melon” meaning apple or fruit, a reference to the simultaneous appearance of flowers and fruit on the shrub. The name may also come from the word “hamatus” meaning hooked, angular, which refers to the shape of the fruit.

The first people to use witch hazel for its healing properties were the Native North Americans. European settlers saw the amazing healing effects they achieved with this plant, which was how it found its way to Europe in the 18th century. Incidentally, the Native Americans also used witch hazel branches to make bows and as divining rods to locate water and mineral deposits.

The Plant at WALA (Dr. Hauschka)
Witch hazel is one of the key plants in Dr.Hauschka Skin Care. WALA essences from the leaves and bark are used in almost all face care products and in many of the make-up items. Witch hazel water is also used in Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream. The plant is valued for its astringent and firming effects and its stimulation of connective tissue. Witch hazel thus helps to give a clear, rosy complexion. On account of its astringent and anti-inflammatory properties, Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner is also particularly suitable for use as after shave lotion.

The firming effect of witch hazel appears to be reflected in the controlled expression of the shrub: its growth is reserved rather than luxuriant; the flowers, which are not luxuriant in appearance either, are held back until the autumn; the leaves are a little hard, stable in shape and do not wilt easily. As a shrub it is more closely associated with the earth and counteracts fiery, inflammatory processes. And the strong power of the sun appears to be concentrated in the witch hazel shrub, which absorbs the sun throughout the spring and summer and does not release any of the collected energy. Only in the autumn, with the blossoming of the star-shaped flowers, does it open itself to the aerial, astral realm. Thus the flowers are also pollinated by the wind. The plant gives us the entire concentrated power of the sun and thus stimulates our metabolism.

“Study rhythms – rhythm carries life.”

Witch Hazel Essence preparation

With Steiner’s answer in his head, Hauschka developed a procedure for preserving medicinal plant extracts without using alcohol as a preservative. He used the power of natural polarities, the rhythmic alternation of darkness and light, warmth and cold, movement and rest.

Even today, we still use this basic rhythmic procedure to produce our extracts, essences and tinctures. We rhythmically stir our base products and even rhythmically shake our preparations to prepare them for the Intensive Treatments, for example. The rhythms of the seasons also determine the work in our medicinal plant garden.

12 Steps to a Radiant Skin

Screen Shot 2014-02-06 at 1.45.16 pm

For a balanced and healthy skin!

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 12.35.44 PM

1) Drink warm water and lemon juice every morning on waking to help keep your skin clear. Even better to add a little organic apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon of honey in as well!
Resolve to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water every day to keep your skin plump and hydrated.

Lemon Tip: When lemons are in season juice plenty and freeze small amounts in ice cubes. Pop an ice cube in a cup at night so it’s quick and easy for the morning.

Hydration Tip: A small amount of apple juice with your glasses of water assists hydration.

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 11.48.06 am

2) Compress and Hydrate your skin prior to cleansing for a much deeper cleanse. Skin will feel silky soft and you will be using cleansing products much more economically too.

Compress & Hydrate, Press & Roll Video

Compress Kit

3) Remember to complete both morning and evening cleanse with a cool compress or a cool splash.

Why?
This simple technique contracts a tiny muscle beside the hair follicle, thus helping to wash away any remaining dirt or make-up and keeps your skin soft, without having to use harsh exfoliants which disrupt your 28-30 day skin cell cycle which just renders your skin more prone to sensitivities and sun damage. Those outer cells are important protectors and should only naturally slough off when they’re ready.

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 11.29.47 am

4) Once a week give your skin a Facial Steam Bath and Cleansing Clay Mask treatment for the deepest cleanse to keep your skin looking clear and healthy. I think a Sunday night works well for this treatment, helps to keep me in the habit too.

Tip: Use Cleansing Sponge to re-moisten Cleansing Clay Mask after it’s dried, it’s no longer active once dry, then the Mask will be removed easily and efficiently with Cleansing Sponge.

Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 10.02.38 AM

5) After Facial Steam Mask and Cleansing Clay Mask apply a Cream Mask, which absorbs into the skin particularly well at this time. Cream Mask application should be done a second time during each week.

Tip: For your second Cream Mask application during the week. Cleanse nice early in the evening, apply Cream Mask, remembering with this mask you also apply around eye contour as an ‘eye mask’ as well. Leave on as long as possible, removing with a warm, moist cloth before bed.

Cream Masks:
Rejuvenating Mask – benefits all skin conditions, refining pores and making a noticeable difference
Moisturising Mask – Dryness or dehydration, may also be used as a day cream also for ‘parched’ dry skin
Soothing Mask – Sensitive, red, irritated skin, also helpful to use a day cream for rosacea
Firming Mask – a warming mask with the power of rose in all it’s forms to firm and tone

Screen Shot 2014-02-06 at 1.39.27 pm

6)  Adhere to Daily Rituals…

Morning Ritual
Cleanse with Cleansing Cream
Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner
Regenerating Serum (if appropriate)
Day Care to balance, regulate, nourish and protect skin against the elements

Evening Ritual
Cleanse with Cleansing Milk
Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner
Regenerating Serum (if appropriate)

Screen Shot 2013-09-14 at 3.57.18 PM

7)  Never use heavy, occlusive face night creams that impede your skin’s night time functions nor use eye creams overnight as that usually just results in puffy eyes in the morning.

Read more about our no night cream stance in our Dr. Hauschka Skin Facts here…

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

8) Complete a 30 night treatment with Rhythmic Night Conditioner instead of Toner at least in the two most transitional seasons of autumn and spring. Ideally one treatment each season. A skin cell cycle is 28-30 days

Screen Shot 2013-09-14 at 6.39.48 PM

9) We recommend a Classic Facial Treatment with a Dr. Hauschka Trained Esthetician at the beginning of the year to check in with your skin condition/concerns and receive an updated product prescription to ensure you’re investing in the best products and regime for optimum results.

 Dr. Hauschka Trained Estheticians

Skin is dynamic, it changes with age, the seasons, lifestyle factors, hormonal influences such as puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, post natal and menopause. I even use different day care in the week from the weekend, because my environment is different.

Body Care set F-GB_Press

10) Treat yourself to natural and organic Body Products too that will nourish your skin and your senses, providing moisture and aromatic support.

The skin is your body’s largest organ, and it’s semi-permeable, so yes, only natural and organic body care as well as face care.

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 12.07.34 pm

11) At the beginning of the year do a Make-up Clean-up and during the year attend a Dr. Hauschka Make-up Event to learn if you have cool toned or warm toned skin, to ensure you’re buying colours that best suit you. Learn application techniques and try out a new look.

In store Events for Skin Care Consultation and/or Make-up run from February to November each year and they’re advertised in our e-Newsletter and on Facebook. 

Tip: Remember mascara should be thrown out after 3 months, natural or otherwise, for hygiene reasons. New one beginning of January, April, July & October.

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 11.58.42 am

12)  Clean your make-up brushes every second week. Hygiene with skin care is so important. And Dr. Hauschka make-up is colour as well as care for your skin.

Good quality brushes give you a professional, long-lasting make-up. Look after this investment and they will last years and years.

Tip: Always lay your brushes flat after cleaning to dry. If they are standing upwards they don’t hold their shape as well and moisture gets into the glue.

Skin Condition: Dry Skin

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 1.41.52 pm

Dry Skin Fix

Dryness and dehydration is a prime reason for premature wrinkles and lines so it’s imperative we protect our skin from this condition.

Daily Ritual
Morning:
Cleansing Cream
Facial Toner

Day Care Options: 
1) If your skin is ‘parched’ dry we would recommend Moisturising Mask used as a day cream until condition improves.
2) Protective Blend: Moisturising Day Cream to activate the skin’s sebaceous activity and Rose Day Cream over the top to nourish and protect.
3) Antioxidant Blend: see information below. Rose Day Cream blended with a couple of drops of Normalising Day Oil.
3) Rose Day Cream
4) Regenerating Serum and Regenerating Day Cream is our usual recommendation for maturing skin support, however as Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Day Cream is more rich we would recommend to use on your face for a drier skin that still requires firming and toning.

Evening:
Cleansing Milk
Facial Toner
Regenerating Serum 
if required for a maturing skin

Did you know?
That night cream use exacerbates a dry skin condition. Use our gentle cleansing products and give your skin 28-30 days (skin cell cycle) on an exclusively Dr. Hauschka regime and see the difference in the health and vitality of your skin.

Solution to dryness and dehydration?

Moisturising Mask is our ultimate skin fix, twice a week, cleanse early in the evening and apply the mask, around your eye contour too, and leave on to absorb all evening, removing with a moist, tepid cloth before bed. 
If your skin is extremely dry you may also use Moisturising Mask as your ‘day cream’ for a month or until condition improves.
 This blend of botanicals soothes, protects and revitalises while sealing in moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and supple.

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

The skin healers and antioxidants are Vitamins A, C and E, and the optimum choice when topically applying these vitamins is when they come in the form of the whole plant extract.
Rosehip for Vitamin C and Wheatgerm for Vitamin E, both found in Rose Day Cream formulation. Mix with a drop of two of Normalising Day Oil prior to application to skin still moist from Toner. That glorious orange colour comes from Wild Carrot Extract, a rich source of pro Vitamin A.

 There you have it, a potent antioxidant blend!

Intensive Skin Care with Mask Blends:

Jose, our Esthetician Trainer, has a couple of tricks up her sleeve to keep skin looking fabulous. This first blend is so uplifting that when our UK Esthetician tried it she only did it on one half of her face. She promptly had to do the other half because of the difference it had made.

Firming & Moisturising Mask Blend

• Cleanse early in the evening
• Apply a generous amount of Regenerating Serum – also to eye contour area as an eye mask
• Then apply Moisturising Mask over the top – also to eye contour as an eye mask
• Leave to absorb all evening, removing just before bedtime

The other blend is for those of you that have red, irritated, flaky skin as well as dryness. You may still wish to use Regenerating Serum as well if you usually do.

Soothing & Moisturising Mask Blend
• Cleanse early in the evening
• Apply a generous amount of a mixture of Soothing Mask and Moisturising Mask – including eye contour area
• Leave to absorb all evening, removing just before bedtime

A dry skin needs help to achieve balance and we highly recommend a one month treatment with a nightly Rhythmic Night Conditioner ampoule instead of Toner.

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.

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!
