Dr Hauschka Skin Care Tip: Rhythm is the Key

Rhythm is the Key . . . to Health and Vibrancy.

What does rhythm have to do with skin care? That question goes to the heart of the Dr. Hauschka Skin Care story. In the 1920's Dr. Rudolf Hauschka asked his mentor Rudolf Steiner the ever-challenging question:
“What is life?”

“Study rhythm,” Steiner replied, “Rhythm carries life.”

This deceptively simple answer was the inspiration behind Dr. Hauschka's life work. As he observed the world around him he could see life gains its form from the rhythms of nature. He noted, for example, the way in which the vitality of plants ebbs and flows with the rhythms of passing time, the sap rising and falling with the rhythmical motions of the sun and moon. He saw the power of nature's rhythms on all living things, and realized that life itself was in constant rhythmic flux. He envisioned a way to use nature's rhythms to transfer the vital life forces of plants to substances he could use as healing medicines without the use of alcohol or artificial preservatives. This “rhythmical process” became the basis for his healing remedies and later for Dr. Hauschka Skin Care.

Hauschka's colleague and pioneering esthetician Elisabeth Sigmund recognized the importance of our skin's natural rhythms, too. She recognized the 28-day cycle of renewal by which the skin was constantly recreating and balancing itself, and saw the connection between this rhythm and the rhythmic cycles of the moon. Her unique skin care methods involved rhythmic, healing touch to stimulate lymph flow and support health. The signature Dr. Hauschka “press and roll” cleansing method, for example, is a rhythmical regimen that supports skin health by gently removing dirt and oil while stimulating lymph flow, all without compromising the skin's protective layer. Together with Hauschka, she developed therapeutic preparations to support the natural, rhythmic functions of the skin.

Rhythm is at the heart of our work at Dr. Hauschka Skin Care. Healthy rhythms create a state of balance, encouraging a return to health and bringing forth a radiant beauty. From our Biodynamic growing and harvesting methods to our unique processing, products and signature treatments, rhythm remains the key.

We encourage people to reconnect with their own inner and outer rhythms, to establish healthy patterns in their lives and, of course, to care for their skin with a daily holistic skin care regimen. Steiner's words continue to inspire us to this day. “Rhythm carries life,” indeed; in recognizing and respecting our rhythms we can learn to heal, restore and return ourselves to a state of ultimate well-being.

Father's Day Turns 100 Today

"Father's Day is a celebration inaugurated in the early twentieth century to complement Mother's Day in celebrating fatherhood and male parenting. It is also celebrated to honor and commemorate our forefathers. Father's Day is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide and typically involves gift-giving, special dinners to fathers, and family-oriented activities. The first observance of Father's Day is believed to have been held on June 19, 1910 through the efforts of Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington."

Happy Father's Day from the staff at Radiance!

Sacred Paths for Modern Men:

A Wake Up Call from Your 12 Archetypes by Dagonet Dewr

"...And lay claim to your true masculine nature and spiritual heritage. According to Dagonet Dewr, a writer and activist in the men's pagan spirituality movement: "We have forgotten how to cry, to scream, to hunt, to love, to honor, to teach, to initiate."

Hip, funny, and direct, this pagan belief guide explores twelve powerful male archetypes and their relevance for men today: Divine Child, Lover, Warrior, Trickster, Green Man, Guide, Craftsman, Magician, Destroyer, King, Healer, and Sacrificed One.

Stories of characters from mythology, fantasy, and pop culture illustrate different expressions of masculine energy. With pagan rituals and magickal workings, this pagan book offers a visceral, hands-on way to connect with archetypal energies and honor male rites of passage such as coming of age, seeking a partner in love, or becoming a father."

Tired Old Ass Splash

An Invigorating Mist and After Shave
"Tired Old Ass Splash is an astringent and stimulating mist for spraying on the face and body after shaving, exercising, or just for waking up! Treats "razor bump" and is anti-bacterial, sparks up the brain and juices up the body, leaving a refreshing eucalyptus scent that fades naturally. Makes a great break from work to spray this energizing mist (and laughter) around--and if you can't laugh where you work--quit your job! Life's too short to lose your sense of humor!"

Dr Hauschka Skin Care Tips- Stop Scrubbing

Stop Scrubbing—your skin is not the bathroom floor.
“Keep it clean.” That's step one in any healthy skin care regimen. It's common knowledge that dirt and impurities can cause breakouts and clog pores. Not so commonly understood is how easy it is to damage your skin by over-cleansing, scrubbing, or using harsh drying or exfoliating products.
We want to remove excess dirt, oil and makeup without disturbing the skin's natural line of defense—the balance of oil and water on its surface layer known as the acid mantle. Soaps, scrubs and exfoliants can strip your face of this natural protection, resulting in dry, irritated skin and premature signs of aging. Dr. Hauschka's exclusive “press and roll” cleansing method gently removes excess dirt and oil while protecting the skin's natural defenses and stimulating healthy lymph flow. This encourages and supports healthy skin, resulting in a clear, radiant complexion.
