Earth Born Beauty

The Way You Are

New to Dr. Hauschka. Where do I start? October 4, 2011


You will start with a personal consultation either online or in person. It would be best to meet in person and within a few weeks I shall be available at my kiosk at the sustainable mall at 210 on Long, at the corner of Long street and Bloem street, Cape Town.

Meanwhile, you may browse my virtual store at http://www.earthbornbeauty.net and my business page on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/earthbornbeauty for more information on the products we promote. You may also contact me on my mobile at 071 2288 566 to set up a free consulation.

If you wish to try Dr. Hauschka before committing to full size products, we have put together a beautiful trial kit in a reusable container.

The trial kit is available in Oily – Impure and Normal – Dry.

These kits are currently on promotion so be sure to visit our virtual store and facebook page for further details.

Dr. Hauschka Normal – Dry Facial Kit. This trial kit should last for 7 – 10 days. The kit contains a (1) CLEANSING MILK to remove make-up and as a usual cleanser for very sensitive skin types that can’t handle any type of stimulation. Remember that Dr. Hauschka does not encourage manual exfoliation and friction as it can easily irritate any skin condition. Dr. Hauschka Skin Care works WITH the skin and not ON the skin. (2) CLEANSING CREAM should be used twice daily – Once in the morning followed by the (3) FACIAL TONER and in the evenings it is used after Milk Cleanser has been used to remove make-up. Apply toner with pressing and tapping motions with the palm of the hand. Do not feed a cotton pad. Follow this up with your choice of moisturiser of which there are 3 in this kit. (4) ROSE DAY CREAM for daily moisturising when your skin needs to be calmed and comforted. (5) QUINCE DAY CREAM for when your skin needs a little extra moisturising in drier climates and when being affected by hormonal fluctuations. (6) MOISTURISING DAY CREAM which is a general stimulating moisturiser for all conditions especially dull, sallow conditions and can be mixed with other products.
What to apply at night? Cleanse and tone. That is all your skin needs! I were just as surprised thinking that my skin could never survive without a night cream. Well, we want to promote and encourage the skin’s natural regeneration. Applying creams at night will do nothing more than make the skin lazy!! We want to wake it up instead. Yes, even when nodding off because your skin never sleeps. ūüėČ I’ve been through it; and it has proven itself to be quite true. More about that soon.

The Normal – Dry Skin Care Kit is now on promotion for R 236.72 while stock lasts.

Dr. Hauschka Oily – Impure Face Care Kit. Finally a skin care regime that will not dry the skin out. Yes, you’re oily, but drying it out will simply exacerbate the problem. What you need is balance and calm. So instead of trying to vacuum all the oils (which will make it believe that there is a lack of it and produce even more to your distress and confusion), comfort it with oil and you’ll be surprised at how well your skin takes to this idea that it starts to produce less oil, which will mean less clogged pores and eventually less breakouts! Wouldn’t that be heaven? The Oily – Impure Kit contains (1) CREAM CLEANSER which binds to impurities and lifts and renews without having to use friction. In fact, rubbing is not at all advised. I will explain this product in detail when you purchase it. ūüôā (2) CLARIFYING TONER should be applied with the palms of the hands and not a cotton pad. (3) FACIAL STEAM BATH is a deep cleansing steaming treatment to assist in deep cleansing the skin and preparing it for treatment products. (4) CLEANSING CLAY MASK can be used after a Facial Steam Bath to further assist in deep cleansing. The clay mask is also a friction-free exfoliant suitable for all skin types. Oily skins should use it 2 – 3 times per week and less oily skins once per week. (5) REJUVENATING MASK is a multi-purpose mask to stimulate and encourage healing of scar tissue and awakening of the skin of all conditions. It is ideal for stressed and tired skin and softening of large pored skin. (6) NORMALISING DAY OIL regulates oil production, reduces inflammation and the formation of blackheads. It moisturisers, heals and comforts troubled skin.

The Oily – Impure Skin Care Kit is on promotion for R 276.32 and will last for about 7 – 10 days

Did you say no night cream? You must be kidding me, right? No, I’m not. We are going to work with your skin. Never on it or even against it. Yes, slapping on creams at night will not only make your skin lazy, it will also exhaust it. At night the skin regenerates itself. Can you imagine it having to deal with fatty creams and potions when all it wants to do is take a deep breath and restore what¬†has been lost during your busy day? Fighting off all kinds of unwanted guests, protecting you from external factors all day long and then you hop in to bed with just another job – moving around creams when it’s energies could be spent on better and far more important things such as repairing itself? RHYTHMIC NIGHT CONDITIONER is your answer. It is an intensive night treatment which assists the skin in returning to it’s normal and healthy rhythms. What is rhythms? Our skin has it’s own rhythm. In fact life itself is a process of rhythms. The skin’s rhythm is that it functions differently from day to night time. The skin regenerates itself over a period of 28 days. Every 28 days the cells of the uppermost layer of the skin is renewed. Understanding these rhythms enabled Dr. Hauschka to develop a regime that is best suited to the skin’s needs at and during these specific phases. RHYTHMIC NIGHT CONDITIONER is a 28 day ampoule treatment for night application. It may also be used during the day depending on the skin’s needs. This treatment normalizes and supports the skin renewal cycle. RHYTHMIC CONDITIONER SENSITIVE has the same effect on the skin and also has a stabilizing action on the blood vessels. These treatments is best used 2 – 4 times per year.

During a personal consultation we will be able to recommend the best program for you. Give your skin a new lease on life! ^.^

DRHAUSCHKATISSUEBOX

What is the secret of Dr. Hauschka skin care?

The Dr. Hauschka face care brings together all that is best in nature. The finest natural ingredients, selected medicinal herbs, a unique treatment concept and a core idea that shapes its cosmetic and skin care approach.

The skin possesses the power to nurture and regenerate itself. Internal and outer factors leave traces on our skin and disrupt its healthy rhythms.

The main principle of the Dr. Hauschka skin care range is to teach the skin to work for itself and harmonise and restore natural rhythm.

It is the only skin care range in the world that sends information to the skin so that the skin works correctly.

It achieves this by working with the skin’s functions and not on the skin. We do not want to manipulate the skin as this often only produces short-term relief and create a long-term problem and dependency.

Together with the less is more principle and a thorough understanding and respect of the skin’s functions, these preparations and the specific application methods aim at normalising any given skin condition by challenging itself and re-establish the balance. ¬†

Dr. Hauschka skin care products help maximise these powers and this is what makes Dr. Hauschka skin care unique.

MELISSA CREAM

The uniqueness of Dr. Hauschka skin care.

The finely tuned Dr. Hauschka range stimulates the skin’s own activity, strengthens its intrinsic, healthy rhythms and protects against external influences.

Kidney vetch (Anthyllis vulneraria) and the Rose (Rosa damascena) are at the heart of every formulation in the Dr. Hauschka skin care range.

Kidney vetch supports the skin’s natural rhythm.

The Rose lends Dr. Hauschka skin care products their harmonising powers.

Plant extracts, mineral substances, nurturing oils and waxes together with natural essential oils form the base for this high-quality natural skin care range.

Experience the pleasant and beneficial effects of this natural care on your skin – all day long.

Loving the green life. January 2, 2011


A Spot of Sun on a Forest Walk

It has been widely acknowledged that a great percentage of what we apply to our skin is absorbed by it and finds it’s way in to our blood stream. This fact is clearly illustrated in the use of contraceptive, weight loss and nicotine patches.

In the very least these chemicals accumulates in the layers of the skin and can cause a variety of adverse reactions.
The result of using chemically laden products may not be immediately noticeable but with repeated use and over a period of time these toxic chemicals disrupts our body chemistry causing infertility, birth defects, cancer, skin diseases, allergies and general disharmony in the natural function of the human body.
These synthetic chemicals have a negative effect on the quality of our lives. 
Chemicals used to manufacture personal care products and it’s by-products are also harmful to nature and our ecosystems.
By choosing natural and organic products we are protecting our health as well as sustaining our environment.

Welcome to Earth Born Beauty – The Way You Are

You can rest assured that all products offered to you on our site are natural, non-toxic, holistic, cruelty-free, environmentally friendly, certified organic beauty care.
It doesn’t end there. If the packaging is not reusable, recyclable, and bio-degradable, it will not be for sale at Earth Born Beauty.

Considering that a description of our services is available on our ABOUT page, I thought of doing things a little differently with our first post. I do not wish to rave about the wonderful products we promote, and they ARE absolutely awesome, but instead share with you an interesting tale I read a few weeks ago in Odyssey magazine.

A merchant sent his son to learn the Secret of Happiness from the wisest of men. The boy travelled around for many weeks until he finally found a beautiful castle nestled on top of a mountain. There lived the wise man he had been searching for, for 40 days. The boy was quite surprised to find that this man looked nothing like he had imagined. A holy man, without the normal physical markers we have perhaps learnt to expect from such a person.

The wise man entered the room with crowds of people in his midst and conversed with everyone. There was a lovely orchestra playing in the background and delicacies from all over the world were available for everyone to indulge in.

The boy had to wait two hours for an opportunity to speak with the wise man. Once the time arrived he explained to the wise man the reason for his visit.

The wise man handed the boy a spoon filled with two drops of oil and advised the boy to stroll around the palace for two hours without spilling the oil. The boy did as he was told and as he walked about he did not remove his gaze from the spoon for a split second.

On return the wise man asked him if had seen the beautiful Persian tapestries in the dining room. He asked if he noticed the wonderful garden that the Master of Gardeners spent 10 years to create and the parchments in the library. Of course the boy had not seen any of it as he was too occupied with keeping the oil from spilling.

The wise man suggested he go back to his walk, but this time ensuring that he enjoy the beauty and wonders of the palace. “You can’t trust a man if you don’t know his house.” the wise man added.

Feeling much relaxed the boy went on his tour of the palace once more. He took in all of the beauty and splendour the palace and it’s surrounds had to offer. He could not believe that he had walked these very same paths earlier and hardly noticed any of it. The perfect harmony and placement of every single art form and general interior of the palace left him astounded.

On returning he excitedly reported on everything he had come across on his tour. “But where is the two drops of oil I had entrusted you with?” asked the wise man.

Shocked that he had completely forgotten about the spoon, the boy looked at the spoon and noticed that he had spilled all of it.

“Don’t worry,” said the wise man. “You came here in quest of some advise and all I have to tell you is this: the secret of happiness lies in looking at all the marvels of the world and never forgetting the two drops of oil in the spoon.”

Hope you enjoyed this inspiring story.

Loving the green life.
