Natural Skin Care Guide
How to Use Martina Gebhardt Naturkosmetik
Each skin is very unique and although we offer special products for various skin types, Martina Gebhardt suggests that you experiment with the products to find the right product and blend for you. For example you can use Ginseng Skin Care products ( refreshing and invigorating effect ) in the morning and Rose Skin Care products line (more calming and harmonizing) in the evening.
Martina Gebhardt suggests to apply just a small amount of your natural moisturizer. A tiny amount goes a long way. An excess of moisturizers can actually inhibit the skins natural functions.
For normal, young skin, it is sufficient to use only a facial cleanser at night. Martina Gebhardt facial cleansers contain pure, high-grade plant oils and are free of soaps and detergents. After cleansing the cleanser leaves enough oil on your skin to protect it overnight. This way, perspiration and impurities reach the skin surface without obstruction. If your skin is very dry and requires a somewhat richer treatment at night, a small amount of the lighter moisturizers provide excellent moisture protection.
Martina Gebhardt facial toners are an important part of the daily skin care program. They make wonderful skin tonics, are very refreshing, and offer important water-soluble nutrients that are not available in creams or lotions. Therefore, we recommend to apply our facial toners regularly for complete nourishment.
Consider your skin condition, local air quality, and the seasons when selecting your moisturizer. As a general guide line, we recommend lighter moisturizers for younger people. The use of a lighter moisturizer is also often a better choice during summer in locations with balanced humidity levels. Further, Martina Gebhardt facial lotions are great as a makeup base.
Martina Gebhardt's moisturizing creams are better suited for individuals with mature and aging skin. And we suggest moisturizing creams during winter in cold, dry locations.
You can adjust the moisture content to suit your individual needs. To obtain the perfect amount of moisture for your skin type, you can thin the cream by mixing in a little of the corresponding facial lotion before applying.
Our moisturizers, facial masques, and facial skin serums can be combined with any of our other Martina Gebhardt products. It is recommended to switch the products within our line periodically to ensure that your skin receives a broad range of nutrients.
Caution: Our products are formulated without any harsh or irritating synthetic or petroleum based ingredients and therefore are very gentle by nature. However, keep in mind that it is possible to develop allergies or skin sensitivities to any substance on earth - including natural substances. Therefore, if you have allergy-prone or highly sensitive skin always carefully review ingredient list and patch test before applying any skin care products. Consult with your holistic health or beauty professional for guidance as needed.
