THE SKIN GAME CHANGER

Skin, Beauty, wellness, they are all very trendy topics to talk about at the moment. Mainly because I think there is a fresh light (and rightfully so) being put on self care and really putting the effort and time into yourself. Being selfish when it comes to your wellness and having a healthy mind is so important. Even though I do believe that serving others and putting others before yourself is the cure to having less anxiety and a bigger outlook in life, in the same breathe looking after yourself is important too so don’t feel bad when you want to take a minute for yourself to re align and get peace for the week/ month/year ahead.

If you have been following my journey some what, you would know that my skin has been apart of my body that I am not comfortable in. I wish I could say that I loved wearing makeup but I don’t, only because I used makeup to cover and hide my face. I have nothing against makeup I just wish it wasn’t a tool to hide but rather products I use to highlight my features.

A few months ago I just got over feeling sorry for myself and decided to take action. Take control of my body, my health and my skin. Even though this may not really be new and exciting news to you, I came to my own realisation that what you put in is what you get out and the exact same goes for our bodies. What goes into my body is a direct result of what my skin shows. In this journey of realising all this I got introduced to an amazing brand Dr Baumann. Not only have these products changed my skin, their whole philosophy is about wholistic living:

Animal-friendly and environmentally friendly products:

  • Free from preservatives
  • Free from mineral oils
  • Free from animal substances – vegan
  • Does away with unnecessary waste: no additional packaging
  • Free from perfume, except for special products containing essential oils*

With all this being said I would love to show you my skincare routine that I have been living by for the last while. As well as some images of my skin to show you the progress.

By no means is it perfect yet because these things take time and as I continue to live healthy and be more active my skin will slowly start to repair itself and honestly I can say that Dr Baumann is helping me get the glowing, youthful look we all want.

STEP ONE:Dr Baumann Cleanser: This mild cleansing gel is free of chemical foaming agents allowing it to gently cleanse the skin, removing oiliness and impurities. Urea helps bind moisture to the skin and macadamia seed oil leaves the skin feeling nourished and supple. Most importantly all Dr Baumann cleansers do not disrupt the pH of the skin allowing the protective barrier to function optimally and prevents the growth of harmful bacteria. Use daily, in the morning and evening, massaging into the skin and rinsing with warm water. Double cleanse when removing makeup.  

STEP TWO: Beaucaire Super Sensitive Medium: This product is ideal for people with sensitive skin. It is packed with vitamin E which protects the skin from free-radicals and UV rays, urea moisturizes the skin and lactic acid supports moisture retention. Apply in the morning to cleansed skin followed by sun protection and in the evening after liposome application.  

STEP THREE: Beaucaire Eye Cream: This rich cream is specifically formulated to care for the delicate and dry skin around the eyes. It has moisture-dispensing active ingredients which work against the development of fine lines and wrinkles. The ingredients include Vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant which effectively reduces UV damage), Vitamin A (encourages healthy cell production), D-panthenol (promotes moisture), sesame oil and allantoin (increases the skin’s smoothness, aids wound healing and promotes cell proliferation and longevity). Gently apply on the eye area using your ring finger to tap the product into the skin around the eye. Apply in the morning and evening after your moisturiser.

Use daily, in the morning and evening, massaging into the skin and rinsing with warm water. Double cleanse when removing makeup.  


STEP TWO (NIGHT TIME ONLY):Beaucaire Liposome Light: Liposomal products are those which distinguish Dr Baumann from many cosmetic brands. This product enhances the skin’s moisture content and very effectively reduces lines and wrinkles. All liposome products contain skin-friendly vitamins E, A, C and provitamin D-panthenol, as well as hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the skin. Apply a pea-sized amount to cleansed skin. This product transports ingredients down to the deeper layers of the skin so should only be followed with non-chemical products or used at night only. 


STEP THREE (NIGHT TIME ONLY):Dr Baumann Herb Vital Ampoule: We love our diverse range of ampoules which can be used to customize your skincare routine throughout the month or across seasons. The herb vital ampoule contains chamomile which has anti-inflammatory properties and is one of the most effective ingredients for acne prone skin, allantoin promotes skin healing and cell regeneration and summer savoury is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Lightly tap two to three drops onto the skin after liposome application. Can be used daily or during breakouts or when skin appears red and irritated. 

STEP FOUR: Beaucaire Eye Cream: This rich cream is specifically formulated to care for the delicate and dry skin around the eyes. It has moisture-dispensing active ingredients which work against the development of fine lines and wrinkles. The ingredients include Vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant which effectively reduces UV damage), Vitamin A (encourages healthy cell production), D-panthenol (promotes moisture), sesame oil and allantoin (increases the skin’s smoothness, aids wound healing and promotes cell proliferation and longevity). Gently apply on the eye area using your ring finger to tap the product into the skin around the eye. Apply in the morning and evening after your moisturiser.


ALTERNATIVE STEP TWO: Liposome E & C:This liposome has particularly high concentrations of vitamins E & C; vitamin E protects against environmental stressors and UV rays and vitamin C is used in the production of collagen and helps to brighten the skin’s complexion. This liposome also contains evening primrose, jojoba oil, vitamin A and E, provitamin B5, hyaluronic acid, chamomile and a high concentration of multilamellar liposomes. These have a particularly strong moisture dispensing action in the skin. With regular use skin looks significantly more hydrated, plumper and more youthful. We recommend you start with the Beaucaire liposome light and use these samples after two weeks of using the products once your skin has adjusted. 


WEEKENDS:Chocolate Mask: This mask revitalizes, firms and hydrates the skin. The cacao promotes blood circulation and other ingredients gently exfoliate the skin. Mix in two heaped tea spoons with water adding the water bit by bit until the consistency is smooth and firm (consistency should be thick so that the mask does not drip when applied to the face). Apply evenly over the entire face avoiding the area just below the eyes. Leave for 15-20 minutes until the mask starts to dry. Remove earlier if it starts to feel very tight. The mask can be peeled off or washes off with warm water and a cloth (disclaimer: it can be a little messy).
