We’d all love a firmer, smoother and more radiant appearance but when it comes to addressing skin concerns for women with more mature skin, it’s important to give your skin all the helps it needs to bounce back. Specially designed for women and men aged 40-plus, the Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Intensive Skincare range encourages the skin’s renewal processes, helping to revive skin that has lost some of its former moisture and elasticity.
It may be tempting to stick to your old faithful face creams and cleansers for as long as possible but, switching to a more nourishing skincare range after the age of 40 is the best way to give your skin the tools it needs to look and feel healthy. If your skin is losing its elasticity, becoming drier and developing wrinkles, then it falls within the category of ‘mature skin’. And this has very special demands. That’s where the Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Intensive series comes in with the new Regenerating Day Cream Intensive and Regenerating Oil Serum Intensive.
Radiant at any age
Forget, ‘anti-ageing’ skincare, with the Regenerating range from Dr. Hauschka, it’s not about unrealistic goals of looking younger — it’s about looking better and feeling great. The products in the Regenerating range have all been designed in a way to specifically support the skin while still encouraging and allowing it to be active. Formulated for mature skin needing extra hydration and care, this exciting range is kind to the skin and offers the moisture and nourishment needed to help your skin maintain or get back that youthful radiance.
But not all mature skin is the same. Which is why Dr. Hauschka developed both the Regenerating and Regenerating Intensive range of products, each with different formulations and modes of action. These fulfil different skincare needs and accompany mature skin through various stages of life. As mature skin becomes increasingly dry and sensitive, it requires more strength and protection than before. It is at this stage that a client could add the Regenerating Intensive Day Cream and Regenerating Intensive Oil Serum to give the skin additional support.
Hands on with the range
I tried the new Regenerating Day Cream Intensive and Regenerating Oil Serum Intensive and found both products to be incredibly nourishing and restorative for my skin. 100% natural and organic, both products combine the powers of blackthorn fruit and blossoms to help support skin that is losing firmness and elasticity and leave the skin feeling soft, smooth and toned with a radiant complexion all day long.
While the products are recommended for ages 40-plus, if initial fine lines and wrinkles appear as early as 35, the Dr. Hauschka team recommends treating your skin to the revitalising formulations sooner rather than later. The extremely rich Regenerating Intensive products are a great choice from age 50 if you’re skin is already becoming increasingly dry and sensitive, while less demanding skin will likely only need additional protection from age 60.
Of course, now at the age of 31, the new Intensive products were, a bit too nourishing for daily use on my skin, but I do struggle with dehydrated skin, so I found I would reach for this serum and the day cream on days when I found my skin needed some serious TLC. I absolutely loved the texture of the serum and the day cream and despite both products being extremely nourishing they melted into the skin super quickly, without leaving any residue or film on the skin. You get an instant feeling of hydration when applying both these products, and my dehydrated skin lapped up the moisture incredibly quickly.
My experience with these products has definitely got the Dr. Hauschka Regenerating range on my radar and I’m sure when the day comes that my skin needs more intense care I will be adding these products to my regular skincare routine.
