As the weather is becoming cooler our skin tends to feel more sensitive and dry. As we all know, a dehydrated skin is a very unhappy skin. First we notice the tight sensation and perhaps even some peeling and flakiness. Next we start seeing fine lines, especially around the eyes, mouth and across the forehead. What are we to do then?

Prevention is always better than cure, so we should focus on combating this condition.

I have deliberately chosen the word “condition” because dehydrated skin is a temporary skin condition brought on by several factors opposed to say someone who has a dry skin type.

Any skin type can become dehydrated. You might be surprised to hear this, but an oily skin is more often than not dehydrated. The sebum glands go in to over-drive and produces even more oil as we attempt to use products to dry up the oil. That is our biggest mistake. We should aim at calming the skin so that it learns to rebalance itself.

When skin is dehydrated it lacks moisture, so to remedy this skin condition we should take a more comprehensive approach by not only adding moisture to the skin but by protecting our skin from external aggressors too.

Several factors reduce hydration in the skin.

Natural aging is one of the main causes of dehydration of the skin. Declining hormones can result in the loss of collagen and elasticity which causes skin thinning.

Lifestyle choices such as the consumption of alcohol, coffee and smoking places oxidative stress on the skin which makes it more prone to dehydration and wrinkles.

Environmental factors such as excessive sun exposure, cold air and windy conditions also result in loss of moisture. Taking long hot showers and baths also contributes to dehydrated skin as it draws moisture out of the skin. Being in air-conditioned rooms also depletes the skin of moisture.

Incorrect and aggressive cleansing methods can disrupt the protective mantle barrier of the skin and increase the chances of your skin becoming dehydrated. Avoid using manual and chemical exfoliants on any skin type. 

It is important to identify the reasons and causes of a dehydrated skin condition as it will enable you to take the appropriate corrective measures.



The best way to ensure hydrated skin is to look at what we consume.

Increasing your water intake to about 6 – 8 glasses a day will not literally plump up your skin, but it supports our internal organs and enables it to function optimally. Water is a calorie-free drink! That should more than enough reason for us to opt for a bottle of water than other drinks. Your skin is the window to your health. A healthy body will almost always guarantee a healthy and glowing skin.

Fruits and vegetables contain a variety of minerals and vitamins and of course anti-oxidants and fluids that aids hydration.

Avoid foods that are high in sodium as it naturally draws water from the body. 

Use a humidifier if you work or live in an air-conditioned area or place a bowl of water in your bedroom at night.

The most obvious remedy of course would be a topical treatment. Applying a water-based moisturiser in the morning will boost hydration. Using moisturising and nourishing masks will give the skin an extra shot of intensive moisture when needed or as part of your weekly routine to maintain supple skin. 

Avoid applying lotions and creams to the skin at night as at that crucial time the skin is regenerating itself. The last thing it needs is to be exhausted by shifting creams around when it should focus on natural repair.

The skin is a living organ and has the ability to regenerate itself. We should work with that natural process and not against it.

For a happy skin, keep it moisturised internally as you would externally. Be sure to get about 8 hours of sleep at night and invest in a good Vitamin C supplement and consume sufficient Omega fatty acids. Your skin will thank you.

Amazing anti-oxidant more powerful than A C E combined. January 7, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Earth Born Beauty @ 1:22 pm
Tags: , , , , , ,

We know that boosting our carotenoid levels is beneficial to our health and well-being. Well, this anti-oxidant packs one mean punch and you don’t want to be missed. Not this time. 🙂

“550 Times More Powerful than Vitamin E –
The Age-Defying Antioxidant You’ve Never Heard Of*”

It’s on rare occasion I consider adding a supplement to my daily regimen… this is one of those times. Why? This super-carotenoid is not only more powerful than beta carotene and vitamins A, and E, it can help you reduce wrinkles, dry skin, and age spots… plus help protect your eyes and brain from oxidative stress.*

By now, I believe most everyone interested in natural health has heard of antioxidants and their health benefits.*

But just like many things the mainstream media and consumer marketers latch on to these days, antioxidants have become a buzz word for selling hype and added profits.

That’s not to say that many foods and supplements don’t contain some antioxidant properties.

But there are bigger questions to be asked when it comes to antioxidants.

For instance, how powerful is the antioxidant in question? If you consume foods with low antioxidant levels (antioxidant capacity is not always identified by marketers), you might need to eat massive amounts to have any effect on those pesky free radicals.

On the other hand, if you consume foods and supplements with highly concentrated amounts of natural antioxidants, you won’t need to consume as much and you have a better chance of protecting yourself from free radical damage.*

So, how do you know which sources have the most concentrated natural antioxidants?

First of all, I must reiterate how, in my opinion, eating a wholesome organic diet based on your Nutritional Type (NT) is key to optimal health. Once you have this under your belt, you can then consider supplementation to boost your vitality even more.*

Plus, you should know…

How Two Different Types of Antioxidants Work Together to Neutralize Free Radicals*

Antioxidants are generally classified into two broad categories…water soluble (hydrophilic) and lipid soluble (hydrophobic).


Your body needs both types of antioxidants because each one targets different types of cells and tissues for free radical scavenging…

  • Water soluble antioxidants – These are present in aqueous fluids, such as blood and intracellular and extracellular fluids. They react with oxidants in the cell cytosol (fluid portion of cytoplasm) and the blood plasma. Examples of water-soluble antioxidants include… vitamin C, glutathione, and catechins.
  • Lipid soluble antioxidants – These are localized to cellular membranes and lipoproteins. They protect cell membranes from lipid peroxidation.* Examples of lipid-soluble antioxidants include… vitamins E, A, and beta carotene.

The bottom line… to fight and help neutralize pesky free radicals, you need both types of antioxidants from as many sources as possible.*  When taken together, the efficacy of water- and lipid-soluble antioxidants is enhanced even more.

For a phenomenal water-soluble antioxidant, I strongly recommend Purple Defense with resveratrol. You can check out my site for more details on this extraordinary formula.

And when it comes to lipid soluble antioxidants, I believe I’ve identified a…

Natural Super-Antioxidant Like No Other

Astaxanthin increases your stamina*

Up until now, this natural super-nutrient has not received the attention and notoriety I believe it deserves.

What if you could…

  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dry skin, age spots, and freckles?*
  • Boost your brain and nervous system protection from free radicals?*
  • Help reduce the visible signs of aging?*
  • Promote your joint and skeletal system health?*
  • Potentially enhance your skin protection from sun-induced free radicals?*

And if you’re an athlete, or even a weekend warrior, what if you could…

  • Increase your strength and stamina?*
  • Improve your endurance?*
  • Enable faster recovery from exercise?*
  • Reduce joint and muscle soreness after a vigorous workout?*
  • Enhance your visual acuity and depth perception?*

Something you might be interested in, but sounds almost too good to be true?

There is a natural super-antioxidant nutrient that can help you do all this… and more.* And it’s not just based on ‘hearsay.’ Clinical trials have researched the solid benefits of this powerful lipid soluble antioxidant.*

What this Super-Nutrient Does for Salmon, It Could Do for YOU*

Most folks don’t have much of a clue why salmon have such distinctive coloring. There’s something very unique that gives them their unique reddish-pink color.

If you guessed it is an antioxidant… you are correct.

But it’s not just any antioxidant… and it’s not only responsible for salmon coloring, but also provides them with the endurance they need to swim for several days against the current to reach their spawning grounds.

What Makes Pink Flamingos Pink?

Many people aren’t aware that baby flamingos are born white. They only obtain their pink color once they eat food that is loaded with astaxanthin.

Astaxanthin belongs to a class of naturally occurring pigments called carotenoids.

So, what are carotenoids?

Carotenoids are the compounds in your food that provide…

  • Brilliant colors from…
  • Beautifully green sea grasses to…
  • Stunning red beets to…
  • Spectacular yellow bell peppers… that possess…
  • Potent antioxidant properties crucial to your health*

Even though there are more than 700 naturally occurring carotenoids, most people are probably only familiar with a few and the most common one is beta-carotene..


Where Do Carotenoids Come From?

Salmon is a rich source of Astaxanthin

Many carotenoids may be easily obtained simply by eating a good diet rich in fresh organic produce. However, the carotenoid that possesses the super lipid soluble antioxidant I’m referring to is challenging to come by.

In fact, there are only 2 known sources…

  • A very unique source of microalgae called Haematoccous pluvialis and…
  • Sea creatures (salmon, and krill, for example) that consume the microalgae

To take advantage of this powerful antioxidant the way salmon do, you would need to find and consume the type of microalgae identified above (highly unlikely), or eat a healthy supply of salmon itself.

The challenge with salmon is to get adequate amounts of the antioxidant, either expensive sockeye salmon needs to be consumed, or large amounts of other types of salmon (almost 2 pounds of Atlantic salmon).

Additionally, even if it’s wild salmon, there are always concerns with mercury and other heavy metal content.

I have a much more practical solution for you to get adequate amounts of this super-antioxidant artillery… to help you benefit like salmon do*… coming up.

But first let’s explore more about what this super-antioxidant can do in…

Little ‘Marvels‘ To Help Reduce the Signs of Aging*

I mentioned above how this super-antioxidant helps provide amazing anti-aging benefits.*

Well, just how does it do all that?

It all gets back to the relatively unknown carotenoid… now believed to be one of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature. As a source of antioxidants and vitamin A, carotenoids are critical to the photosynthesis process. Plus, as antioxidants, they protect plants and organisms from free radical damage caused by light and oxygen.

How does this apply to you?

Well, by consuming plants or organisms containing the carotenoid pigments, you can gain a similar protective benefit.*

One area this super-nutrient has shown potential is in helping reduce the signs of normal aging.*

As you probably already know, I strongly believe in using sun exposure to get your body to produce critical amounts of vitamin D. However, over exposure and burning is not a good thing… and can be risky to your health.

By adding antioxidants to your diet to help combat sun-induced free radicals in your skin, you can help to potentially avoid…

  • Premature skin aging*
  • Excessive wrinkling*
  • Skin Dryness*
  • Excessive number of age spots*
  • Proliferation of freckles*

Here’s another area where astaxanthin may provide potential benefits*…

How to Help Maintain Healthy Function of this Vital Bodily Process*

There’s a vital natural biological process that occurs inside your body every day.

In many cases, this natural biological process, known better as your immune system function, is a very beneficial to help improve your health.

But, just like anything else, too much of a good thing is not always good. When immune system mediators triggered by this process occasionally get out of control, it could affect your overall health.

Thus, it’s important to help maintain your immune response at a healthy level.*

Five of the most effective things I recommend you do to help promote a healthy immune response are…

  • Eat a healthy organic diet based on your Nutritional Type (NT)
  • Exercise regularly to help control your weight
  • Avoid vitamin D deficiency
  • Keep your stress levels in check
  • Avoid smoking

Plus, there is one more thing I believe you can do to help promote an optimal immune response… and that’s to consume the carotenoid and super-antioxidant called astaxanthin.*

I am so convinced of this that I have been consuming astaxanthin every day since I first learned of its incredible benefits.*

And here’s how astaxanthin can help give your stamina a boost*…

An Athlete’s Secret Weapon?*

If you’ve taken my advice on using different types of exercise as key elements in an overall health and fitness plan, you know how you can occasionally have aches and soreness after a good workout.

Astaxanthin helps imorove stamina and endurance*

Well, as an athlete, or even a weekend warrior, natural astaxanthin can potentially…

  • Help increase strength and improve your overall stamina and endurance*
  • Enable quicker recovery after your workouts*
  • Reduce your joint and muscle soreness caused by vigorous exercise*
  • Improve visual acuity and depth perception*
  • Help protect skin from overexposure due to sun-induced free radicals*

So, how does astaxanthin potentially enhance your endurance and recovery?*

One key area astaxanthin has a positive effect is on your mitochondria.*

Mitochondria are little intracellular powerhouses within your body. They produce up to 95% of your body’s energy.

So, it should not be surprising mitochondria are found in your muscle tissue.

That’s where you have one of the greatest demands for intense bursts of energy.

But there is a downside to this energy-producing activity… it can generate highly reactive free radicals.

These free radicals can damage your cell membranes and oxidize your DNA. The more strenuous the workout, the more free radicals you produce. The bottom line… you can end up with tired and sore muscles.

And that’s where astaxanthin comes in.

As a powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin has been shown to effectively scavenge free radicals from muscle tissue and help reduce singlet oxygen (particular type of ‘bad’ oxidation).

This is how astaxanthin can potentially give your strength, stamina, and endurance a healthful boost.*

So, how does astaxanthin stack up against other nutrients rich with antioxidants?…

How Does this Astaxanthin Compare to Other Antioxidants?

There are many properties that make this super-carotenoid unique.

Astaxanthin compares astoundingly well to other nutrients and powerful lipid soluble antioxidants when it comes to free radical scavenging and neutralizing singlet oxygen.*

When it comes to free radical scavenging, astaxanthin can be as much as…

  • 65 times more powerful than vitamin C*
  • 54 times stronger than beta-carotene*
  • 14 times more potent than vitamin E*

Plus, astaxanthin has been shown to be more effective than other carotenoids and other nutrients at ‘singlet oxygen quenching’ by being up to…

  • 550 times more powerful than vitamin E*
  • 800 times stronger than CoQ10*
  • 6000 times greater than vitamin C*
  • 550 times more powerful than green tea catechins*
  • 11 times stronger than beta-carotene*


Astaxanthin was even found to be as much as 2.75 stronger than lutein with regard to singlet oxygen quenching.

Pretty amazing antioxidant… wouldn’t you agree?*

The above comparisons have been made against some incredible nutrients in their own right. Yet, astaxanthin blows them away when it comes down to effective free radical scavenging and singlet oxygen quenching.*

And here’s even more on how astaxanthin is potentially so effective…

  • Able to cross the blood-brain barrier and the blood-retinal barrier (beta-carotene and some others don’t do this)…*
  • Protects your eyes, brain, and nervous system from oxidative stress*
  • Potentially reduces DNA damage caused by free radicals*

Any questions why I’m simply amazed at the healthful power of this super-antioxidant?* To date, I’ve never seen anything like it.

So, all you have to do is run out to your local health store or vitamin shop to pick up this extraordinary nutrient.


Well, it’s not that simple and there are some warnings and issues you should be aware of…

Warning: Make Sure You Get the REAL Deal

Pacific Salmon

Like all nutrients, you need to be on the lookout for synthetic varieties and, in my opinion, try to avoid them.

Fortunately with astaxanthin, this is not as much an issue with supplements. How so? Well, that I’m aware of, synthetic astaxanthin is not used in any supplements for consumption by human beings.

This is the good news…

The bad news is synthetic astaxanthin is still most commonly found in animal feeds. So, if you believe you’re eating healthy by consuming salmon, but the salmon is not ‘wild’ or ‘naturally colored,’ there’s a good chance you’re consuming synthetic astaxanthin indirectly.

So, what’s so bad about that?

Well, the majority of synthetic astaxanthin is produced from highly-processed petrochemicals. That means you could be consuming some forms of synthetic chemicals if you eat farmed salmon.

See, fish farmers need a way to color the salmon so they look fresh (attractive pinkish-orange-red color).

That’s where often times synthetic astaxanthin fits the bill. Some aquaculture companies are considering using natural astaxanthin because it’s healthier for the salmon and has superior pigmentation advantages. There’s only one main barrier preventing most from doing this… it costs more.

So, when buying salmon, I recommend you make sure to find wild Pacific salmon because it contains astaxanthin that is…

  • 20 times stronger than synthetic astaxanthin
  • 400% higher in quantity than farmed salmon
  • 100% natural in the salmon’s pigment, and not synthetic

But even if you can afford (very expensive) and find genuine wild Pacific salmon, there still is a risk of high levels of mercury and other unwanted toxins.

Plus, you’d have to eat several ounces every single day to get the same dose of astaxanthin that is present in the natural supplement I’ll be introducing to you next…

So, what, in my opinion, is the best way to get natural astaxanthin?

Why Supplementation May Be One of Your Best Approaches

To me, one of the best ways to get natural astaxanthin is through supplementation. Don’t get me wrong, wild Pacific salmon is an excellent alternative.

But as a reminder and due to the following, consuming wild Pacific salmon (particularly, sockeye) might not be completely practical because…

  • Wild Pacific salmon is expensive for most people
  • You’d have to eat approximately 3-4 ounces per day, every day, to get the approximate equivalent of 4mg of a natural astaxanthin supplement
  • Wild salmon may contain mercury and other risky heavy metals

You may already have recognized the name ‘astaxanthin,’ because I’ve mentioned it before on my site in reference to krill oil, my favorite source of animal based omega-3 fatty acids.

Well, even with my Krill Oil having one of the highest concentrations of astaxanthin on the market today, new research shows you can benefit from even higher amounts.

And that’s why I recommend a natural astaxanthin supplement for those interested in the potential health benefits.*

So, with all this said, here’s my recommendations on…

What to Look for in a Natural Formula

I’ve already reviewed above some of the potential pitfalls with some of the sources of astaxanthin.

Here’s a simple list of factors that I recommend you consider when finding a natural supplement formula…

  • Make sure the astaxanthin formula is created from natural marine microalgae and not some form of fungus, or some other less effective form.
  • Due to the fact astaxanthin is best absorbed when taken with a ‘fatty’ meal (lipid soluble), look for a formula that contains some sort of natural oil or fatty acid that will help maximize your absorption. Without this additional ingredient, your absorption could be less than optimal.
  • Don’t just settle for what’s necessarily on the label of the bottle. Dig deeper into finding out more info on how the manufacturer guarantees stability and efficacy of the formula.
  • In addition, make sure the manufacturer can provide solid evidence they don’t use chemical solvents or preservatives in their formulation processes.
  • Due to new research, most recommendations for daily dosages of natural astaxanthin can now range from 4-8mg. So, look for at least a 4mg minimum serving size so you won’t have to take as many capsules.

As you know, krill oil does contain astaxanthin (my formula = 600 mcg per serving). But due to recent research, I recommend you consider a separate astaxanthin supplement to complement krill oil.

7 facts that will change the way you look at your skin care. December 14, 2011

Beautiful skin isn’t always healthy—however healthy skin is always beautiful.

That’s just one of the facts we stand by at Dr.Hauschka Skin Care. You’ll find that our approach to health and beauty is quite different from other skin care lines, and you may well be surprised by some of the facts you discover.eautiful skin isn’t always healthy—however healthy skin is always beautiful.

That’s just one of the facts we stand by at Dr.Hauschka Skin Care. You’ll find that our approach to health and beauty is quite different from other skin care lines, and you may well be surprised by some of the facts you discover.

Skip the night cream; your skin will thank you.

Why Dr.Hauschka doesn’t recommend night creams:

  1. While you sleep your skin is actually hard at work regenerating itself, balancing oil production and expelling impurities.
  2. Regular application of night creams interferes with these essential tasks, and over time skin becomes less able to care for itself. Use of nighttime moisturizers signals the sebaceous glands to cut down on moisture production, resulting in even drier skin. Over time, skin becomes dependent on moisturizing products just to appear “normal.”

What Dr.Hauschka recommends:

Rhythmic Night Conditioner

  1. A Dr.Hauschka regimen allows the skin to carry on its important night work. Balanced skin needs nothing more than cleansing and toning before bed.
  2. Rhythmic Night Conditioner is a water-based formula infused with rose essential oil and rhythmitised dilutions of dynamic plant extracts that supports renewal and balances oil production. Use it for 28 days, mirroring and supporting the skin’s natural cycle of regeneration to encourage a return to an even, radiant, balanced complexion.

Like treats like.

Normalizing Day Oil

Why Dr.Hauschka recommends Normalizing Day Oil for oily and acne-prone skin:

  1. 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.
  2. Drying, soap-based products and oil-free acne treatments can rob the skin of its defenses, leaving it vulnerable and triggering the sebaceous glands to produce even more oil.
  3. Normalizing Day Oil provides a light, clean layer of pure plant oils and botanical extracts that balance excessive oiliness while helping to soothe and minimize the appearance of blemishes and irritation.

Why Dr.Hauschka recommends a light moisturizer for dry skin:

  1. If we treat dry skin with rich, heavy creams or oils we effectively trick our skin into believing it’s been producing too much of its own oil. In response it will decrease production, perpetuating the dry skin cycle.

Moisturizing Day Cream is light enough to support balanced oil production, but it also provides enough nurturing moisture to avoid dry skin. Over time, the skin will maintain its natural balance and be better able to fend for itself.

Stop scrubbing—your skin is not the bathroom floor.

What cleansing should—and shouldn’t—accomplish:

Clarifying Toner

  1. Cleansing is the foundation of Dr.Hauschka Skin Care. And the reason is simple: it is common knowledge that dirt and impurities can cause breakouts and clog pores.
  2. 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.
  3. Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream using our signature “Press and Roll” method gently exfoliates, removing excess dirt, oil and makeup without disturbing the skin’s natural line of defense—the balance of oil and water on its surface layer known as the acid mantle.
  4. The activity of pressing and rolling encourages the lymph system’s cleansing functions , resulting in a clear, radiant complexion.

Ingredients matter...and quality ingredients matter most.

The highest quality ingredients make for the most effective products available.

Ingredients matter...and quality ingredients matter most.

  1. 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.
  2. Hauschka manufacturer WALA Heilmittel has been studying and working with nurturing plant and mineral extracts since 1935. Over the decades they’ve developed an in-depth understanding of the way certain plants mirror specific skin functions and the manner in which each plant interacts with the skin to stimulate and support a toned, balanced and radiant complexion.
  3. We rely exclusively on healthy, ecologically and socially responsible sources for our ingredients. WALA Heilmittel supports sustainable, ecologically sound agricultural practices by obtaining as many of their ingredients as possible from certified Biodynamic and organic sources. Burkina Faso, Africa, WALA helped local women establish sustainable agriculture cooperatives to produce shea butter. Those cooperatives now provide all the certified organic shea butter WALA needs to manufacture its Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products.
  4. WALA owns and operates its own Biodynamic garden and farm, which provides a number of the ingredients used in its homeopathic remedies and the Dr.Hauschka Skin Care line. The vast majority of ingredients in the Dr.Hauschka Skin Care line are from Biodynamic and organic sources, and not a single ingredient comes from an organization involved in animal testing.
  5. Our natural botanical preservatives help keep products fresh without the use of chemical additives. In this way, we’re able to maintain the vitality of our Biodynamic and organic plant ingredients, delivering their nurturing, supportive qualities directly to you.
  6. Dr.Hauschka Skin Care has been 100% natural for over 40 years. Throughout 2011, Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products will begin displaying the mark of NATRUE certification, a new, international standard for natural and organic skin care.
    • NATRUE certification ensures that a product has met the strongest criteria available for natural ingredients in cosmetics, as verified by an independent certifier.
    • NATRUE is a non-profit, international association founded by the pioneers of natural and organic cosmetics.

Dr.Hauschka Skin Care manufacturer WALA Heilmittel is proud to recognize the NATRUE seal as a major advancement in establishing a natural and organic cosmetic certification that is internationally recognized, transparent and whose criteria is readily available to consumers worldwide.

In addition, All Dr.Hauschka Skin Care preparations are certified natural by the BDIH, an association of German product manufacturers whose “Guidelines for Natural Cosmetics” are amongst the most selective available. Following comprehensive independent testing and verification, BDIH certification is awarded exclusively to products that are free of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, colors, dyes and petroleum derived synthetics.

Your Skin is Smart.

How your skin is smart:

Your Skin is Smart.

  1. 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.
  2. The key is to encourage and strengthen your skin’s natural processes.

How Dr.Hauschka Skin Care is different from other skin care lines:

  1. Unlike many other skin care lines that suppress the skin’s functions or interfere with the skin’s natural rhythms, Dr.Hauschka Skin Care respects the skin, allowing it to cleanse, balance and renew itself.
  2. Dr.Hauschka Skin Care draws on centuries of herbal wisdom, combining traditional approaches with modern science and technology to create gentle-yet-effective natural skin care products that work with the skin holistically to help it achieve a natural, self-sufficient state.
  3. Dr. Hauschka knows that your skin is smart, and respects its ability to regulate, protect and renew itself with the proper care. The Dr.Hauschka approach to skin care results in the undeniable glow of true and lasting beauty.

Not All Facials Are Created Equal.

Not All Facials Are Created Equal.

How a Dr.Hauschka Skin Care facial is different from other facials:

  1. The key to our facials lies in balance and rhythm—and Dr.Hauschka signature face and body treatments are designed to support both.
  2. Dr.Hauschka estheticians 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.

Combining the select botanical blends of Dr.Hauschka Skin Care preparations and the power of touch, Dr.Hauschka estheticians are able to support the skin’s natural processes of self-cleansing and renewal to bring forth your own inherent radiant beauty.

Rhythm is the Key to Health and Vibrancy.

Rhythm is the Key to Health and Vibrancy.

What does rhythm have to do with skin care?

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 rhythm is followed and nurtured, plants, animals and humans can live in healthy, natural balance.

Dr. Rudolph Hauschka recognized the power of rhythm, and envisioned a way to use nature’s rhythms to capture the vital life forces of plants without the use of alcohol or artificial preservatives. This “rhythmical process” became the basis first for WALA’s remedies—and later for Dr.Hauschka Skin Care.

Our products are instilled with ingredients that possess the vitality they had in nature, maintaining the integrity of the plants and making our products uniquely effective.

Elisabeth Sigmund, pioneering esthetician and co-founder of the Dr.Hauschka Skin Care brand, recognized the importance of our skin’s natural rhythms.

  • She recognized the 28-day cycle of renewal by which the skin was constantly recreating and balancing itself, and saw the connection between this rhythm and the rhythmic cycles of the moon
  • Her unique skin care methods involved rhythmic touch to stimulate the skin and support vitality, radiance and balance
  • Her signature Dr. Hauschka “press and roll” cleansing method is a rhythmical regimen that works with the properties of the Cleansing Cream to support skin health by gently removing dirt and oil while stimulating the skin, all without compromising the skin’s protective layer
  • Together with Dr. Hauschka, she developed preparations to support the natural, rhythmic functions of the skin

Healthy rhythms create a state of balance, encouraging a return to skin health and bringing forth a radiant beauty. Rhythm is at the heart of our work at Dr.Hauschka Skin Care. From our Biodynamic growing and harvesting methods to our unique processing techniques, product formulation and signature treatments, rhythm remains the key.
