1 – Skip the night cream, your skin will thank you
While you sleep your skin is actually hard at work regenerating itself, balancing oil production and expelling impurities. Regular application of night creams interferes with these essential tasks, and over time skin becomes less able to care for itself. Balanced skin needs nothing more than cleansing, toning and an oil-free night care before bed. Skip the oil-based night cream, your skin will thank you!
2 – Like treats like
Though it might seem counterintuitive to apply oil to an oily complexion, it’s actually the most logical solution.The skin knows whether it’s sufficiently protected, producing more of its own oil when skin is dry and less when it’s balanced. Drying, soap-based products and oil-free acne treatments can rob the skin of its defences, leaving it vulnerable and triggering the sebaceous glands to produce even more oil.
3 – Stop scrubbing – your skin is not the bathroom floor
Not so commonly understood is how easy it is to damage your skin by over-cleansing, scrubbing, or using harsh drying or exfoliating products. Soaps, scrubs and harsh exfoliants can strip your face of its natural protection, resulting in dry, irritated skin and premature signs of aging.
4 – Ingredients matter…and quality ingredients matter most
Every ingredient that goes into a Dr.Hauschka Skin Care preparation has an important job to do. Whether delivering essential moisture, encouraging resilience, improving efficacy or adding natural, aroma fragrance, each ingredient is carefully selected for its particular effects and its interaction with the whole composition.
5 – Your skin is smart
Your skin has an absolutely amazing ability to care for itself, responding constantly to changes in your internal and external environments. It needs a little help along the way, like protection from overexposure to harsh elements, or support when it gets thrown out of balance. The key is to encourage and strengthen your skin’s natural processes.
6 – Not all facials are created equal
The key to facials lies in balance and rhythm—and our beautiful Dr.Hauschka signature face and body treatments are designed to support both. As a Dr.Hauschka Esthetician, I use rhythmic, caring touch to guide you to balance and serenity, supporting skin health by calming the mind and by stimulating lymph flow to promote its self-cleansing processes.
7 – Rhythm is the key to health and vibrancy
All of life—all of nature—has rhythm. You experience it in the change of seasons, you see it in the changing tides of the oceans, you observe it in a flower that comes to bloom in the spring. We, as people, also have natural rhythms that keep us functioning. It’s the regular beating of our hearts, it’s the flow of blood through our veins—and it’s in the 28-day cycle of skin renewal. When rythm is followed and nurtured, plants, animals and humans can live in healthy, natural balance.
