The Dr. Hauschka guide to happy, Summer skin, in 5 simple steps!
As Summer draws near, high temperatures, long days outside and environmental pollutants can leave your skin feeling tired and stressed out. This is where our 100% natural skin care essentials take centre stage, ready and waiting to help the skin stay fresh so you can enjoy a nourished and brighter complexion. These are some of our Skin Care Essentials recommended to give your skin the extra dose of love and care through the changing seasons.
Step 1: Cleanse with Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream – the perfect basic skin care product, whatever your skin condition.
Facial cleansing can be nourishing. We feel passionately about the power of cleansing and what it can do for your skin. Without cleansing, we do not have a foundation for healthy skin and it can lessen the effects of the other products in your routine.
Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream, is like no other and a skin care Game Changer! Wherever your skin is at, this product will correct and balance it. Uniquely formulated with medicinal plant extracts, high-quality oils, rose water, almond meal, anthyllis and medicinal clay work together to remove impurities, relieve, revitalise as well as balance and nourish your skin.
Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream gently cleanses your skin whilst maintaining its natural hydrolipidic film and without disrupting the skin’s natural protective function. In this way they prepare for the strengthening and nourishing of your skin that follows.
How to use:
Gently cleanse in the morning and evening. Moisten face, neck and décolleté with a warm face cloth. Mix ½-1 inch / 1-2 cm of Cleansing Cream with warm water in the palms to form a smooth, creamy paste. 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.
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 a splash of cool, fresh water to close pores. For sensitive skin use warm water only.
Watch this video tutorial for extra guidance on the “press and roll” action.
Step 2: Invigorate and Tone with Facial Toner – give your skin a boost of freshness with every spray.
During the warmer summer months, sweat and natural oils often become more pronounced, leading to unwanted shine and breakouts. Combat this early with our Facial Toner, formulated with witch hazel which supports the skin’s natural processes of cleansing and renewal, refines the appearance of pores, balancing moisture and oil content, and leaving the skin looking and feeling healthy, toned and radiant.
Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner is also suitable for use over make-up and as an invigorating aftershave for men.
Use our Clarifying Toner for oily, blemished, and combination skin conditions.
How to use:
Mist Facial Toner onto the face and gently pat it into the skin. Make it part of your personal daily skin care routine – use every morning and evening after cleansing for maximum absorption and moisture retention throughout the day. And get a jumpstart on tackling summer skin problems!
Step 3: Revitalise and Renew
Dry winds may lead to your skin looking dull and weathered during the hotter months but fear not! We have a product that combats almost all warm-weather skin concerns – Revitalising Mask. Packed full of natural goodness such as quince seed, anythllis, and chamomile rapidly reduce redness and inflammation for smoother, healthier looking skin in hours. Natural oils like jojoba, avocado, apricot kernel and wheat germ oils nurture and clarify the skin for a brighter, clearer complexion.
Suitable for all skin conditions, Revitalising Mask especially offers soothing care and deep renewal for blemished or sun burned skin or skin prone to couperose and enlarged pores. The appearance of redness or blemishes is diminished, pores are visibly refined and skin appears more even and toned. Skin glows with a healthy radiance
How to use:
After cleansing and toning, apply a generous amount of Revitalising Mask to the face (include eye area), neck and décolleté. Remove after 20 minutes with a warm, damp cloth.
Step 4: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Looking for a mask that hydrates and plumps up your skin? Specially formulated for harsh weather, our Hydrating Cream Mask offers a sense of security while sustainably protecting the skin against dryness from harsh weather. Formulated with quince seed extract which replenishes and helps dry skin to retain moisture while supporting the skin’s natural process of oil production. Our Hydrating Cream Mask imparts intensive skin care to dry and sensitive skin, as well as skin in need of regeneration and damaged by environmental influences. The skin looks fresh and smooth, and is soft to touch.
How to use:
Apply a generous amount of Hydrating Cream Mask to the face (include the eye area), neck and, if necessary, décolleté once or twice a week. Remove after 20 minutes with a warm, damp cloth. You can alternate with the Revitalising Mask for extra brightness!
Step 5: Step up your night routine – with the jewel in our Crown!
Did you know that your skin regenerates twice as quickly at night? Preparing your skin for summer means starting from scratch, and we have the perfect product to ensure your skin is fresh, balanced and prepared for the summer season. Renewing Night Conditioner normalises the skin’s functions and stimulates its natural processes.
This oil-free night time skin care product allows the skin to breathe freely and reminds it of its natural renewal processes over a 28-day time period. With a deeply considered formulation of witch hazel, madonna lily and silver, along with precious rose, bryophyllum (kalanchoe), marshmallow and sunflower, these powerful Ampoules of Renewing Night Conditioner accompany a full 28-day renewal cycle of the skin and support the skin’s essential night-time tasks of cleansing, balancing and renewal.
These powerful Ampoules are the ultimate skin care hero – to cleanse, balance and renew your skin – giving you the perfect base for radiant, nourished summer skin.
How to use:
Skin cells are renewed every 28 days. Mirroring this same regenerative cycle, Renewing Night Conditioner should be used for 28 days in place of a toner. Apply nightly, after evening cleansing. After cleansing, evenly apply the contents of 2 ampoules to the face (including lips and eye area), neck, earlobes and décolleté. In the 4th week, we recommend 1 ampoule. Press gently and evenly to skin until the solution has been fully absorbed.
