I have reached the end of my search! This is now me! Tried and tested and I love it! I am not too sure whether my german is correct as I haven’t used it for the last 43 years!
I am really so pleased to have met a lovely lady, Heather, a Dr Hauschka consultant, who has introduced me to the Dr Hauschka skin care range. I have been trialling several products for the past couple of months. I still haven’t quite got the daily moisturiser right for my skin type but I am working on that; there is such a wide range of ‘possibles’ and I am now really doing as I am told and following instructions and also giving the products time to do their job, so not a one week trial!
I am delighted with Dr Hauschka’s Regenerating Care products and their description: “A vital ingredient isoflavone-rich Red Clover is known to prevent signs of premature ageing. It is also credited with helping the body combat hot flushes!
I am now 60 and have been for six months. I can remember standing at the counter in a department store with some ‘wrinkle cream’ I had bought for my 53rd birthday, waiting for the counter assistant who represented the range. I was going to complain to her that the range made me really HOT and I wanted to know if I had an allergy to it. Fortunately, she was on her lunch break!
My sister in law informed me that I was suffering from ‘POWER SURGES’ and to just enjoy them as they last for 10 years! “Bring ’em on!” I would be in front of a class and could have taken off my jacket and cardigan AND put them back on again within 3 minutes of the introduction to the lesson! I thought they didn’t show until I caught my reflection in a mirror whilst in a restaurant! Wow! So that’s what hot flushes are like.
Unfortunately my Mum died at 61, after having discovered a breast lump, had a masectomy and chemotherapy, only to find the cancer had spread. I haven’t ever taken HRT, which is supposed to work wonders, but which wasn’t advised because of my Mum! What I did take were natural remedies like Wild yam and Red Clover and when I told my doctor, he just laughed and said that HRT was a natural product as it was extracted from horses’ urine!
I know this is very boring to all you young lovelies out there! I know that we all think the progesterone and oestrogen enhancing birth pills are OK and better than having ‘babies’ and I was ‘on the pill’ for eight solid years in ‘my salad days’ when it had just been developed HOWEVER I have always been a keen supporter of natural products. I have munched my way through celery and fennel to supplement my oestrogen and am a firm believer in ‘what you eat is what you are’ and when a child, I remember soaking rose petals in water and producing a mouldy, yucky smelling ‘perfume’ AND cutting the recipes for face cream out of my Mum’s ‘Woman’s Own’ magazine, and mixing concoctions form vaseline, petroleum jelly and shaved coconut AND covering my hair in a paste of camomile flowers to keep it blonde! I was a follower of Cleopatra’s milk and honey bathing! The quickest way to absorb chemicals is through the skin, apparently, and I rest my case with those ‘progesterone patches’ and creams! ANYWAY what I am trying to tell you is to beware of chemicals in products ( dioxins from plastic water bottles when left in the heat!), I could go on and on and on ad infinitum!
I am loving Dr Hauschka because they ARE WHOLLY NATURAL!
The products I love so far are BRILLIANT for my skin, may not be so good for your skin type, but their range is vast and some stores have a skin consultancy option.
Firms the skin of the neck and décolleté, diminishing lines and wrinkles caused by dryness. Skin feels firm, with its structure refined.
This is £49:95 for a 40g tube but is so well worth the money! I only use it on my neck daily, you only need a small amount and it’s great on the areas that show when wearing a low cut dress, which for me, now, isn’t all that often, as my party-life is dwindling!
This is £49:95 for a 15ml dispenser BUT be warned, you only need ‘a smidgen’. Sorry to go on a bit about how much things cost but I think it is important when spending so much that the product is worth it and this is! I just have confidence that this is sooooo natural and I really like the slightly ‘medical’ smell OR, here we go with the old olfactory memories, the smell when you sniff those pink cloth ‘elastoplasts’, plasters?
This is what it says on the website:
- Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.
- Regulates the moisture content of the delicate skin around the eyes.
- Absorbs quickly.
