Dr. Hauschka in the news

dr_hauschka_banner

We feel  a bit like a proud parent bragging about their child, but we would be remiss if we didn’t give a mention to all the incredible press Dr. Hauschka has been receiving lately.

Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream and been featured in Tory Burch, Style.com, and US Magazine lately. Gucci Westman and Jennifer Aniston regularly use the rose day cream as an integral part of their skin care routine. Aniston says, “I’ve used Neutrogena face soap since I was a teen. I also like Dr. Hauschka Rose day cream, which I now mix with sunblock.” Style describes the cream as, “I hate foundation, but I do wear Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream on my face. It feels natural, and I like the smell. It’s light, and it looks sort of like butter.”

Rose Day Cream isn’t getting all the love, NYMag features the Normalizing Day Oil stating,

“Before trying this product, I hadn’t concluded that anyone would actually want to switch from a lotion to a oil. Then, a few drops of this “normalizing” blend of apricot, peanut, carrot, sunflower, and other oils made my dry skin look fresh while eliminating most of grossness from that “T-zone” area dermatologists always signal out. Like a good cream, it felt nice to spread this stuff across my face in the morning. And the slightly medicinal/menthol-y smell (it has added fragrance, unlike many others tested) suggested cleanliness with no extra cologne needed. Only problem: With no dropper included, the bottle is a bit messy.”

If you’re looking for a body oil, instead of face – The Beauty Bean has a great review on the Dr. Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass Body Oil calling it, “No gimmicks, no empty promise, just a high quality body oil that will firm and fortify the skin to diminish the appearance of cellulite.”

What Should Your Skin Care Routine Look Like?

To keep your skin fresh, healthy, and as youthful as possible it’s important to follow an effective skin care routine. Specific products will vary depending on your skin type (oily, dry, combination), but the following products are all important to maintain your healthy glow.

Step 1 – Cleanser

Start off with a cleanser (at night and in the morning) to remove skin’s impurities and dirt. However, it is important to find a cleanser that doesn’t dry your skin out and remove essential oils.

Step 2 – Toner

Toner should be applied immediately after the cleanser to restore the skin’s pH levels and help prep the skin for serum and moisturizer. Toner helps improve skin’s texture and hydration.

Step 3 - Serum

Serums are great products that help protect skin against signs of aging. Serums are generally full of nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants that will help keep your skin vibrant and healthy. A good serum will rejuvenate skin cells and boost collegen production.

Step 4 – Moisturizer

It might sound surprising, but even if you have oily skin, you shouldn’t avoid moisturizer. Moisturizer is a crucial step in the skin care routine. A good moisturizer will help hydrate your skin, not make it greasy. As an added bonus, it’s helpful to use a daytime moisturizer with SPF.

Step 5 (Optionals) – Eye Creams, Exfoliators, Masks

In addition to the steps above, you may want to consider using an eye cream, exfoliator, and masks. For eye creams, avoid anything to heavy – it can create puffiness. You’ll want to look for a light-weight cream or gel. Exfoliating is a great step to reveal younger, smoother skin. It’s recommended to use an exfoliator or scrub about once a week. Using a mask weekly can also rejuvenate skin, regenerate oil, and hydrate.
