Awakening Beauty the Dr. Hauschka Way
In a culture that idealizes youthful looks and encourages elaborate makeovers or even surgery to achieve them, the idea of natural beauty is often all but ignored.
But true beauty is within reach for women of any age, without submitting to needles or knives. The secret is nurturing beauty from the inside as well as on the surface, caring for both body and soul in a way that will naturally result in the smooth skin and radiant glow of good health whether one is eighteen or eighty.
A-list celebrities, professional makeup artists, and Hollywood stylists have long embraced Dr. Hauschka’s botanical products, attracted by their extraordinary results and the company’s thirty-five-year commitment to purity, therapy, and luxury. Now the same extraordinary results are available to the rest of us through a rejuvenating prescription for healing. In Awakening Beauty the Dr. Hauschka Way, Susan West Kurz, president of Dr. Hauschka, Inc., and a longtime devotee of the company’s products, offers readers a transformative program grounded in Dr. Hauschka’s key principles of natural ingredients and working with the body’s rhythms. Her suggestions, when followed, naturally restore healthy, radiant skin and a sense of peace and well-being, and can even result in weight loss.
Awakening Beauty the Dr. Hauschka Way outlines a series of achievable lifestyle changes that can dramatically improve appearance in a single month. First and foremost, Kurz describes how using organically grown and mindfully harvested products can have a positive impact on the body and skin. While simple dietary changes begin to repair and renew the body, the complementary use of meditation, massage, and exercise enhances good health inside and out. Kurz’s holistic approach is founded on an understanding of the body’s own natural rhythms, using them to direct the way each of us receives and responds to subtle cravings for nutrition and care. By recognizing exactly how skin behaves and how it responds to other parts of the body, we can use specific practices to improve the way we care for our skin and improve our overall health. Awakening Beauty the Dr. Hauschka Way includes detailed advice on the most effective ways to wash, tone, and moisturize skin using homemade products, as well as tips on how to critically assess skin care claims and break unhealthy habits. Meal plans, meditation techniques, advice on addressing specific skin conditions and an extensive collection of recipes complete this remarkable story. In just thirty days you can transform your skin and bring forth a natural, glowing beauty that is truly your own.
Nothing reveals your physical beauty more than your skin.
You may pride yourself on the shine of your hair or the color of your eyes, but no other feature gives you a greater experience of your beauty. . . .
The skin performs a multitude of tasks, most of which go unnoticed and unappreciated. It protects us from disease and the daily onslaught of particles large and small. It cools us when we are hot and warms us when we are cold. It heals wounds afflicted on it, often without any assistance from us. It absorbs sunlight to produce vitamin D, essential to the health of our bones and teeth, keeps itself moist, slows its own aging, and, every day, attempts to renew and restore its beauty.
While skin accomplishes all of this on its own, it still needs help. With every blemish, rash, and wrinkle, the skin is asking us to understand its nature and to support its efforts at self-renewal. Unfortunately, many of us respond to changes in our skin with practices that, in fact, assault and injure it further, consequently accelerating the aging process. On the other hand, many of us do nothing at all for our skin—but nonetheless expect it to remain clear, beautiful, and young.
In order to create the most effective program for our skin, we must begin by understanding what it does each day, and how best to support its work. —From Awakening Beauty the Dr. Hauschka Way
