Questions about skin care

 

Which is the right face cream for my skin?

The Dr. Hauschka skin care preparations are attuned to the needs of every skin state. Use them individually or in combination. But remember that the skin is a living and constantly changing organ and that you may have to modify your skin care accordingly.

Revitalising Day Cream (for normal or dry skin) - a light, activating, moisturising emulsion for men and women which restores the oil and moisture balance of the skin. Revitalising Day Cream is the preferred moisturiser for dry skin. It stimulates production of oil by the sebaceous glands, binds the moisture already present in the skin and thus corrects dry and moisture-depleted skin. (Not suitable for couperose skin prone to broken or dilated capillaries.)

Rose Day Cream (fortifying, protecting day care for reddened, sensitive, moisture depleted skin in need of regeneration) - a rich day cream which promotes regeneration of the epidermis and increases the resilience of skin that is sensitive and prone to blotchiness. It also regulates the oil and moisture balance of the skin. Use Rose Day Cream to give additional protection against environmental influences. It can be applied on top of Moisturising Day Cream, for example.

Rose Day Cream Light (soothing, protecting day cream for dry, moisture-depeleted and sensitive skin) - The many facets of the harmonising and revitalising rose are composed into a smooth, readily absorbed day cream. The result is a moisture-regulating and Regenerating Day Cream for dry, moisture-depleted and sensitive young skin.

Regenerating Day Cream (smoothing, Regenerating Day Cream for mature, demanding skin) - The composition of high-grade plant oils and herbal extracts gives demanding, mature skin the impulse to use its own powers of regeneration. The protecting day cream reduces dryness wrinkles, refines and smoothes the complexion. It supports the toning and form-giving powers of the skin and gives it a radiant, soft and well cared for appearance.

Quince Day Cream (for normal skin) - The action of Quince Day Cream is modelled on nature. It is a light, refreshing, hydrating day care product for men and women, which helps to maintain the skin's balance and keep it healthy.

Melissa Day Cream (for sensitive, combination skin; calms, balances, manages shine): helps balance sensitive, combination skin while reducing the appearance of minor blemishes for a smooth, even complexion. This moisture-rich day cream features extracts of melissa, anthyllis and witch hazel to refine the complexion, soothe skin, control shine and help dry skin retain moisture.

Clarifying Day Oil (regulating daytime skin care for combination, inflamed and large-pored skin): the unique combination of plant extracts regulates the production of excess grease, reduces redness and minimises the appearance of pores. Greasy skin returns to normal. Complementing Clarifying Day Oil with Revitalising Day Cream provides the ideal daytime skin care for combination skin.

Tinted Day Cream (for normal, dry or sensitive skin): the natural Tinted Day Cream offers light coverage to optimally blend with all skin tones for a fresh and radiant glow. It also regulates grease and moisture levels. For particularly dry, dehydrated skin, we recommend applying Revitalising Day Cream before the Tinted Day Cream.
