Winter Skin TIPS
Dry, dehydrated, irritated, flaky winter skin?
Dryness and dehydration are prime reasons for premature wrinkles so it’s imperative we protect our skin from these conditions, and during winter we need to be particularly vigilant, as outdoor weather is drying and indoor heating is dehydrating.
So what’s the solution to winter dryness and dehydration?
Hydrating Cream Mask is Dr. Hauschka’s ultimate winter skin fix, twice a week, cleanse early in the evening and apply the mask, also include eye contour area, and leave on to absorb all evening, removing with a moist, tepid cloth before bed. You’ll love how silky-soft and plump your skin feels in the morning!
TIP: If your skin is extremely dry/dehydrated you may also use Hydrating Cream Mask as your day moisturiser for a month long boost.
Hydrating Cream Mask’s super rich 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
Precious Rose Wax and organic Shea Butter soothe and protect
If your skin is hypersensitive, dry, red, irritated, itchy or flaky in winter, choose Soothing Mask as a mask treatment twice a week and use as a day cream for a one month boost to strengthen and restore a sensitive skin. A complex formulation that includes Chamomile, Anthyllis, Lady’s Mantle and Mullein to soothe, calm and balance.
Winter picks for moisturisers
Rose Day Cream contains Shea Butter, Beeswax and precious Rose Wax to protect your skin from outside elements and indoor heating. Precious extracts of Rose Petals and vitamin C rich wild Rose Hips extract help to balance and harmonise your skin, softening Marsh Mallow, calming St. John’s wort and nourishing Avocado oil for winter care. Rose is also warming ingredient.
Revitalising Day Cream in 30ml and economical 100ml is very light in texture, however, also activating for oil glands. This remarkable moisturiser guides your skin into producing more of its own oil.
Quince Day Cream contains Quince Seed extract which helps your skin to retain moisture, while Quince Wax is protective against the environment. Quince is a cooling ingredient, however, which is fine for some parts of the country and it's also recommended if you have sensitive irritated skin that holds heat
TIP: Winter Mask Blend Treatment
For a dry and/or dehydrated skin that also needs firming.
Cleanse and tone early in the evening.
Apply a generous amount of Regenerating Serum including eye contour area as an ‘eye mask’ as well.
Leave to absorb all evening, removing with a warm, moist cloth just before bedtime.
If your skin is stressed, dry, red, irritated, itchy or flaky in winter, choose Soothing Mask instead of Hydrating Cream Mask to strengthen and restore a sensitive skin. Regenerating Serum is also formulated for a sensitive skin.
Lips and Eyes
