Choosing the right mask for your skin can feel overwhelming when there are so many options out there. With this in mind, we asked experts in aiding long term healthy and youthful skin, Dr. Hauschka, to give us their guide on choosing which mask is right for you.
Dr. Hauschka Skin Care
Dr. Hauschka Skin Care was founded in 1967 by Elisabeth Sigmund, a cosmetologist and Dr. Rudolf Hauschka, who was a pioneering chemist producing natural medicines using revolutionary techniques. Inspired by the teachings of anthroposophist Rudolf Steiner, Vienna-born chemist Dr. Rudolf Hauschka discovered a way to produce plant extracts without using alcohol as preservative, which was the only option back in the days. The mission of Elisabeth Sigmund and Dr. Rudolf Hauschka has always been enhancing people’s health with natural skin care while healing the earth through biodynamic growing projects and ethical operations.
Supporting skin with sustainable beauty
Respect for nature, the health and wellbeing of all our customers and employees as well as social responsibility is at the centre of all our thinking and actions. Our philosophy is based upon an in-depth understanding of rhythms and how they aid to balance the skin, while harnessing the most effective 100% natural and organic ingredients.
Dr. Hauschka manufacturer (WALA Heilmittel) owns and maintains its own biodynamically cultivated gardens for over sixty years. Many of the botanicals used in Dr. Hauschka Skin Care preparations come from these very gardens. If ingredients haven’t been available in biodynamic or organic form, we have initiated organic cultivation projects around the world.
Our approach to skin care is unique within our industry. All our products are formulated to guide and support the skin’s natural renewal processes rather than taking over its functions. This is why all our night care products are oil-free; at night, your skin flourishes when offered water-based night care products as these allow your skin to breathe freely, regenerate and revitalise. The advantages of this approach are long term health and youth of the skin.
How to pick the the right mask for your skin
Whether you would like to give your skin a hydration boost, minimise wrinkles or are simply looking for glowing skin the next morning, Dr. Hauschka have a mask for everyone. In the following we introduce the four hero masks that work wonders to help with your concern.
For all skin conditions including acne, couperose, scarred or sunburned skin: Revitalising Mask
Revitalising Mask offers soothing care and deep renewal for all skin conditions. The appearance of redness or blemishes is diminished, pores are visibly refined and skin appears more even and toned. Skin glows with a healthy radiance. Quince seed, anthyllis and chamomile extracts rapidly support the skin’s processes of renewal, helping to maintain moisture, visibly minimise pores and calm the appearance of redness and irritation. Nurturing jojoba, apricot kernel and wheat germ oils clarify and smooth skin. Applying this mask will help you to feel pampered and offer your skin a sense of well-being.
For oily, blemished skin: Clarifying Clay Mask
Clarifying Clay Mask with nasturtium and witch hazel deeply cleanses, invigorates and clarifies oily, blemished skin. It effectively helps minimise blemishes as well as enlarged pores and clears impurities and blackheads. This deep cleansing mask optimally prepares all other skin conditions for a treatment mask.
For dry, sensitive and mature skin: Hydrating Mask
Hydrating Mask imparts moisture retaining qualities to dry, sensitive and mature skin. The blend of botanicals soothes, protects and revitalises while sealing in moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and supple. Applying this mask offers rich protection for your skin. Quince seed extract replenishes and helps dry skin to retain moisture. Nourishing almond, avocado and jojoba oils hydrate the outer layer of skin while rose wax and organic shea butter soothe and protect.
For sensitive, irritated and stressed skin: Soothing Mask
Soothing Mask calms and stabilises sensitive, reddened and irritated skin, guiding it to comfort and radiance. Alchemilla, borage, buckwheat and mullein combine to calm and fortify skin, helping skin to become less reactive. Quince seed extract and witch hazel help retain moisture while nourishing shea butter joins macadamia nut and coconut oils to provide protection. Anthyllis soothes and balances redness and irritation. Applying this mask helps to balance your skin and supports an even complexion.
To minimise fine lines and wrinkles: Firming Mask
Firming Mask protects and fortifies, minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while nurturing and hydrating for smooth, supple, enlivened skin. Rose, marshmallow and pansy support the skin’s natural processes of renewal. Rose petal extract, rose wax, rose essential oil and avocado and almond oils support elasticity as they pamper and enrich the skin. Mango butter and beeswax enliven and replenish. Applying this mask supports your skin feeling stronger and smoother.
How to use the masks
Once or twice a week after cleansing and toning, apply a generous amount of your favourite mask to the face (include eye area), neck and décolleté. Remove after 20 minutes with a warm, damp cloth. For a greater effect deep cleanse using Clarifying Steam Bath and Clarifying Clay Mask prior to applying the mask.
