Tips for Healthy Skin Year Round with Dr. Hauschka Expert Tara O'Rourke
1. A Healthy Diet For Glowing Skin
Haven't we all experienced it before - the shock about the state of our skin after a night out overindulging in alcohol and fast food? Our skin may look sluggish, or even worse we notice blemishes and breakouts. "How we eat is so important for digestion and our overall Gut health" says Tara. "If this is out of balance and rhythm, it has direct implications for the health of our skin". After all, our skin is an organ of elimination and will dispose of toxins in our body.
To help nourish your skin cells, ensure you're drinking a lot of water and consuming plant based foods. We also recommend treating your skin weekly to a Dr. Hauschka Soothing Mask - the mask calms and stabilises sensitive, reddened and irritated skin, guiding it to comfort and radiance.
2. Consider What You Put On Your Skin
Our skin absorbs almost half of the substances we apply, wouldn't you want to make sure that it is all natural?! Beautiful, healthy skin is born from the soil, as the quality of the soil determines the quality of the plants grown in it. If the soil is treated with toxins, the plants will absorb these and it will eventually end up on your skin. "Chemical products can potentially cause skin irritation, allergies or even pre-mature ageing.
This is why it's so important to make sure the ingredients in your products are 100% natural and certified organic, preferably even biodynamic", explains skin expert Tara. Dr. Hauschka who proudly holds a NATRUE certification. The certification guarantees: high-quality natural ingredients, responsible sourcing, no synthetics and no animal testing.
3. Seek Balance Through Cleansing Rituals
Your skin is thought to be the first organ deprived of nutrients, especially during times of stress. This often results in very reddened or pale, dull skin. "These are times when we should implement a care ritual", recommends Tara.
