Compressing & Hydrating supports Correct Cleansing
We recommend you ‘Compress & Hydrate’ prior to cleansing, why?
Because the technique relaxes your skin and softens pores which prepares it for deeper cleansing.
Impurities are more easily removed, leaving your skin feeling deeply cleansed and rejuvenated.
You will also use your cleansing products much more economically on hydrated skin.
You'll find your skin feels so much cleaner and softer once you put this in place as part of your daily skin care rituals.
Aromatic benefits from incorporating Dr. Hauschka Bath Essences, and taking a moment to smell the roses, or whichever bath essence you choose for your mood.
TIP: If you have oily/blemished skin we highly recommend using Sage Purifying Bath Essence.

Fill a basin with warm water, and pour a little Dr. Hauschka Bath Essence under the tap while doing so.
Fold the compress cloth in half and half again, both folds to be length wise, not square, and place in the water.
Squeeze out excess water and place firstly under the chin, then wrap the face and press.
Gently hold your hands along the jaw line, then up over the eye and forehead area. This action stimulates the lymphatic system which is very important for healthy skin.
Hold the cloth on the face for 30 seconds, while inhaling the aroma that is released.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Organic Cotton Compress Cloth is particularly large because the many layers folded help to retain warmth.
TIP: Always complete cleanse with a cold water compress or splashes of cold water. This activates a minute muscle beside the hair follicle, the arrector pili muscle, contracting it, and therefore ensuring any last remaining dirt is removed. This simple technique has your skin feeling wonderfully soft and really clean, without the need for harsh exfoliation.
“Using a Compress brings life to the skin, you’ll notice the difference with your cleansing, it leaves you with much clearer, softer skin”.
