Your skin is assaulted by the environment and the weather all the time and the chemicals found in many cosmetics or skin care products can create a range of adverse reactions that can damage your skin.
Good news is that you skin has an absolutely amazing ability to renew itself with proper care, responding constantly to changes in your internal and external environments.
You just need to support it along the way; like offer protection from overexposure to harsh elements, or assist when it gets thrown out of balance with Dr Hauschka’s 100% natural and organic skin care ingredients which is key in encouraging and fortifying your skin’s natural healing processes thereby resulting in the undeniable glow of true and lasting beauty.
One of the open secrets to good healthy skin is to keep to a daily regime of 1. Cleansing, 2. Toning and 3. Moisturizing/Regenerating 4. Mask and Renewing (two to three times a week)
Cleansing forms the foundation of Dr. Hauschka Skin Care. Skin can be damaged by over-cleansing, scrubbing or using harsh or exfoliating products which will strip the skin of its natural protection, resulting in dry irritated skin with signs of premature ageing.
Dr Hauschka’s natural skin care is so gentle and kind to the skin that it is called a healing cosmetic. A well cleaned skin looks bright and prepares the skin for better absorption of active skin care.
There are 3 products in Dr Hauschka’s Cleansing range; Eye Make Up Remover, Soothing Cleansing Milk and Cleansing Cream.
Cleansing – Eye Make-Up Remover
This first step applies in the evening if you use make up during the day, otherwise skip.
The Eye Make-up Remover gently and reliably cleanses the sensitive skin in the eye area – removing even waterproof eye make-up. In the same step, it cares for the skin with light, fast-absorbing oils, leaving the skin feeling pleasantly cleansed and silky smooth.
Shake the Eye Make-up Remover before use to combine the oil and water phases. Moisten a cotton pad and gently wipe across the eye working outwards. If necessary, leave on briefly and allow to work.
Cleansing – Soothing Cleansing Milk
Even if you don’t wear makeup, it is important to make sure you are cleansing at the end of the day to remove impurities that have accumulated on your skin during the day as these cause oxidative damage and contribute to the breakdown of collagen and the development of wrinkles and sun spots.
Soothing Cleansing Milk gently removes dirt and make-up prior to cleansing with Cleansing Cream. Make up is now formulated for its staying power and it is so far-sighted of Dr Hausckha to advocate double cleansing at night so that your skin is better able to renew itself more efficiently while you sleep.
For sensitive skin, Soothing Cleansing Milk is a daily cleanser with harmonizing, protective properties that help diminish the appearance of redness. It can be used as a gentle shaving lotion too.
Cleansing – Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream
Dr Hauschka’s Cleansing Cream deep cleanses, gently exfoliates, fortifies and refreshes, protecting the skin’s natural protective function.
Using its signature “Press and Roll” method it doesn’t disturb the skin’s natural line of defence—the balance of oil and water on its surface layer known as the acid mantle.
The activity of pressing and rolling encourages the lymph system’s cleansing functions, resulting in a clear, radiant and tone complexion.
The highest quality medicinal plant extracts of calendula, chamomile and anthyllis, with creamy sweet almond meal, cleanse, balance and revitalise skin to minimise the appearance of pores. Almond meal is particularly adept at binding to & the elimination of dirt.
Here’ a more detailed usage instruction as the “press and roll” method is unique only to Dr Hauschka.
- Cleanse in the morning and evening. Moisten face, neck and décolleté with a warm face cloth.
- Mix 1-2 cm of Cleansing Cream with warm water in your palms to form a smooth, creamy emulsion.
- Press mixture gently onto skin then roll hands up and away in a wave-like motion. Start in the centre of the forehead then slowly work outward and down. Do not rub, scrub or treat your skin harshly, it has to last you a lifetime. Avoid the eye area.
- Repeat the press and roll action 2-3 times.
- Rinse with warm water and always finish with a splash of cool water, which contracts a tiny muscle beside the hair follicle, and this simple technique ensures any last remaining dirt is washed away, plus it helps your skin feel toned and silky-smooth.
After cleansing, the next step is toning.
This is one of the most important steps as toner calms & balances the skin and prepares the skin for the next step.
There are 2 Toners – Facial Toner for normal, dry, mature and sensitive skin and Clarifying Toner for Oily or Blemished skin
Toning –Facial Toner
Facial Toner supports the skin’s natural processes of cleansing and renewal, minimizing the appearance of pores, balancing moisture and oil content, and leaving skin looking and feeling healthy, toned and radiant.
The formulation of Anthyllis extract helps skin remain balanced and healthy. Witch hazel extract supports tone and elasticity, refining pores.
Toning – Clarifying Toner
Clarifying Toner gently guides and balances the skin’s natural processes for a radiant, rosy complexion. As part of a daily skin care routine, this oil-free formulation is the ideal toning product for blemished, large-pored and oily skin and is one of the best skincare products for hormonal acne minimising the oil content on your skin.
Its formulation: Anthyllis, calendula and nasturtium reduce excessive oil production and soothe irritation. After cleansing in the morning and evening, mist Clarifying Toner onto the face then gently press into the skin.
The usage for both is the same, after cleansing in the morning and evening, mist evenly onto the face, neck and décolleté then gently press into the skin.
Liquid may appear cloudy or particles may form due to the natural botanical ingredients. This does not affect its quality or effectiveness. Just shake it and swirl the liquid and the particles within shall soon disappear, then you can see that this is the real natural skin care formulation.
The last step to a basic daily regime is to moisturize your skin. Irrespective of what skin type you have; you will need to use the most suitable moisturizer for your skin.
Moisturizing is important to keep your skin looking radiant & glowing throughout the day. Dr Hauschka has a wide range of creams/oil to suit your every skin type ranging from normal, combination oily & blemished skin, sensitive to mature skin.
Dr Hauschka Mature Skin range recognizes that with age, the skin loses its elasticity and firmness and need the extra support to help firm and reinforce the skin’s moisture barrier.
For night care, Dr. Hauschka believes in an oil free formula to allow the skin to breathe freely while supporting its natural renewal processes. Serum for the night revitalises, calms, cools, firms and helps skin rediscover its natural balance resulting in a fresh radiant complexion by morning.
Not all skin care products take care of very sensitive skin. Dr Hauschka has a med range that people with eczema love. Dr Hauschka has one of the best skincare for eczema prone skin too.
