Daily gentle massage with Blackthorn Oil stimulates the circulation, helps to prevent hardening and keeps the muscles and connective tissue supple. Quince Body Moisturiser helps keep skin firm. Rhythmic Night Conditioner helps to re-balance and alleviate some of the skin problems that can occur during  pregnancy, such as hormone-influenced breakouts, dry or greasy skin.

Rosemary Leg and Arm Toner is cooling and enlivening, helping to relieve swollen ankles and tired legs. If you are suffering from twitchy legs then Lavender Bath can be used as a relaxing addition to bath water. Use after the 4th month of  pregnancy.

Before: Remember to take a Daily FACE Care Kit into hospital with you for convenience – it is easy to pack and takes up little room.

After the birth use Lavender Bath to relieve stress and encourage relaxation, and Rose Oil to generally pamper yourself.

Day & Night Skin Rhythm

,

Early morning to 9 am

The body concentrates on Oxygen exchange between the heart and the muscles – a good time to do physical exercise. Cell renewal rate in the skin is low. Toxins excreted during by the skin during the night need to be cleansed off – important to gently cleanse the skin with Dr Hauschka Cleansing Cream.
10 am

The body Temperature is at its highest. The Skin looks its best – a good time to have your photo taken!
11 am

Increase in Sebaceous Gland activity. A good time to use a Face powder if the skin begins to shine.
12 noon

At this time of day it is vital to make sure that the skin has been sufficiently Moisturised as the skin cannot protect itself efficiently against the harsh elements.
1 pm to 2 pm

Metabolism in the body and skin is good. Blood pressure and Hormone levels are at their lowest. Wrinkles are more visible. This is a good time to have a brief walk (with hat on) and then eat a meal.
3 pm

We become more active. We perspire more. A good time to freshen up your make-up.
4 pm

Circulation in the skin is highest. The cheeks become warmer. Skin tends to lose a lot of water at this time. Wrinkles are most prominent at this time of day.
Excellent time to do a Face mask (this may be difficult to do at work?!) and Facial gymnastics.
5 pm to 7 pm

Regeneration processes in the skin begin slowly. Skin looses dead cells, therefore a good time to do a Cleansing clay mask to remove dead cells.
8 pm

The skin is active in its regeneration processes. Sensitivity in the skin is at its lowest – a good time to tweeze one’s eyebrows.
11 pm

Immune system of the body is at its optimum. The body and the skin detoxes itself through the skin therefore it is VITAL not to have a creamy night cream on the skin to prevent this process from happening. Facial Toner or Rhythmic Night Conditioning ampoules, which are OIL FREE, are the Dr Hauschka Night Care treatment. These dynamic hydrating preparations which are OIL FREE, support these night time regeneration processes for a healthier skin condition.

11 pm to 4 am 

Cell renewal is at its highest. Regeneration of the skin is working at peak performance. The Facial Toner and Rhythmic Night Conditioning ampoules support these processes in the skin.

Intensive Care

One day, the Dr.Hauschka Estheticians approached WALA with a request. They wanted a face mask which would support regeneration of the skin. In consequence, the product developers at WALA created the Dr.Hauschka Rejuvenating Mask. The estheticians tested it and were thrilled with the results. The composition of apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil, extracts of quince seed, kidney vetch and borage helps skin of all conditions to find its inner balance. The Dr.Hauschka Rejuvenating Mask stimulates the skin’s natural activity and helps it to preserve moisture. It is also very effective for sun-stressed skin and broken capillaries.

Many years later a new request was made: for a mask specially designed for mature, increasingly dry skin with a diminished capacity for regeneration. The Dr.Hauschka Firming Mask was the lavish response. Its luxurious formula reads like an oriental poem.

In some phases of life the skin lacks oil and moisture, may become stressed and thin or show a tendency to eczema and flaking. For these times WALA has developed a mask with a particularly intensive formula: the Dr.Hauschka Moisturising Mask.

The Importance of Cleansing

,

Cleansing is the most critical part of the face care routine but usually the area of ones routine that is paid the least attention. More harm than good is done if one cleanses incorrectly. If the skin is feeling uncomfortable and tight after cleansing this is the first sign that your cleanser is not working for you and has probably stripped the skin of its natural oils and moisture. We achieve comfortable skin by not disturbing the acid mantle.

Correct cleansing is done by light pressing movements with the Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream. No rotary rubbing and scrubbing! This is because the skins surface will have accumulated a layer of dirt and pollution by the end of the day. If you looked through a microscope, you would see the pollution granules have sharp edges. It is therefore important not to rub these particles around the skins surface, as this may scratch and cause irritation and redness to the skin.

If one wears make-up, then we recommend the Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Milk as this is our Make-up remover for the eyes and face.

Both the Dr.Hauschka Cleanses respect the precious acid mantle while cleansing so one has COMFORTABLE skin after cleansing is complete.

Cellulite

,

What is Cellulite? Fat cells become swollen, congested and enlarged. This  congestion can interfere with the circulatory systems, which affects the elimination of waste and toxins. Women are far more prone to this condition due to the  underlying structure of their skin and fat cell alignment.
Why do we get cellulite?

There are many reasons why one gets cellulite and these are my conclusions: Too many toxins ingested such as coffee, fizzy drinks, foods that have a high content of  the unhealthy fats.

When one overloads the lymph and digestive system the body literally becomes sluggish and cannot eliminate these toxins sufficiently. We would need to consume litres of water a day to help the body rid itself of these toxins. They say for every  up of coffee one needs about 5 glasses of water to prevent dehydration from the  caffeine. Do YOU drink even one glass of water after your cup of coffee… ?

Some people are unfortunately intolerant to starchy foods like bread and other wheat or gluten products – when this happens, the body holds on to water and we literally ‘puff up’. One can also become constipated if there is a real intolerance to the gluten and holding onto toxins in the digestive system overloads the lymph system as well as other organs and in turn cellulite becomes worse.

Eating these kinds of food, if one is intolerant to them, over a long period of time will lead to bulking of the body and the body usually feels sluggish. One does not really feel like doing exercise when one has excess weight to carry and this makes the problem worse because the toxins sit and perhaps the metabolism slows down.

Hormonal imbalances can also lead to other organs not functioning at their  optimal level. We could also say that sluggish organ function can lead to hormonal imbalances.

When the body and it’s organs are not functioning at optimal levels then toxins will not be eliminated fast enough. Toxic bodies tend to have more cellulite.

How to improve the cellulite condition?

Diet – I would always look at Carbohydrates first.

Drink – 2 to 3 litres of filtered water per day.

Apply Dr.Hauschka Birch Arnica body oil to wet skin after a shower or bath. Use circular and kneading movements working up the leg towards the groin area. This will help encourage your circulatory system to eliminate waste and toxins.

Poor circulation? – Apply Dr.Hauschka Rosemary Leg and Arm Toner daily to legs, thighs, buttox and upper arms.

This is my favorite product to use in the morning as it’s aroma brightens my whole day, my legs feel alive and my bathroom smells glorious! – Caro

Detoxify the body. The adoption of a healthy diet and lifestyle is important in improving cellulite. This means good nutrition, reduced salt intake, sufficient water intake, regular exercise, sufficient sleep, no smoking and adequate  relaxation.

Cultivation Projects

,

Roses from Afganistan

Rose Project in Afghanistan organised by German Agro Action
To provide the people of Afghanistan with an alternative to growing opium poppy, German Agro Action supports some 200 farmers in cultivating roses to produce essential rose oil. As the manufacturer of Dr.Hauschka Skin Care, WALA Heilmittel GmbH contributes not only its expertise to the project; net proceeds from the sale of Dr.Hauschka Cosmetic Bags are also donated directly to the rose project.

 

Scent of Roses in the Desert – IRAN

There is a scent of roses in the air. Hans Supenkämper walks with Mahdi Maazolahi between the tall willow trees silhouetted against the brilliant blue sky and the building containing the distillery to the place where the compost is maturing. The 4000-metre high mountains in the distance are still covered in snow but the two men, so different from each other, are already beginning to feel the heat of this May day. The agriculturist Hans Supenkämper, a tall, sturdy man with gentle eyes, is a WALA consultant on biodynamic agriculture who advises farmers in Iran. Today he is visiting the fields of the mountain village Mehdi Abad with the agricultural adviser of the Zahra Rosewater Company, Mahdi Maazolahi, to appraise the compost started the previous autumn.

 

Shea Butter Burkina Fas

In 2001 WALA Heilmittel GmbH began supporting a shea butter project in Burkina Faso. In this project, women in several villages within a protected, certified organic collecting area for shea (or karité) nuts produce raw shea butter (beurre de karité) in the traditional manner. For many families the sale of shea butter is an important source of income. WALA helps to preserve these village communities by purchasing the shea butter from the villages at above-average prices and giving long-term purchase guarantees. Through the project the villages receive financial, advisory and organisational assistance with obtaining organic certification. In August 2004 the second main inspection for organic certification took place, which means that the project has reached a further milestone.
