A balanced morning routine is of upmost importance to me. Even though I don’t have your typical nine to five job I still like to set my alarm in the morning to ensure I don’t oversleep. Too much sleep equals a grumpy Emma.

I usually spend my first 30min slowly waking up in bed while scrolling through my social media feeds – Instagram first of course. I then make myself a pot of herbal tea and wash my face while I wait for my tea to cool down. This is my favourite part of the morning, the time when I really wake up:

I fill my basin with lukewarm water and add a capful of Dr. Hauschka Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence (296.00). Spending an extra R300 on your facial routine may seem excessive but the calm feeling of serenity that you filled with after washing your face is definitely worth that extra R300. Plus I’ve had the bottle for 3 months and I’m not even half way through it. I then cleanse my skin with the Dr. Hauschka Soothing Cleansing Milk (R422.00) with gentle tapping that creates a suction on my skin to remove dead cells and activates the lymphatic nodes. After rinsing my face I splash some cold water over my face to close the pores and mist my face with Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner (R422.00). Lastly I finish off my routine by gentle massaging in some Dr. Hauschka Revitalising Day Cream. (R737.00)

I then sit down and enjoy my morning tea and breakfast catching up on some fashion news. Porter magazine is my absolute favourite!

How do you start your morning?


Revitalising Feel Good Ritual with Dr.Hauschka

January 19, 2015

I love products that make my skin look and feel amazing. My skin takes a beating when I have back to back shoots so it’s important for me to take the time out when I get home from a shoot to pamper my skin no matter how tired I may be.

I’ve recently started using more plant based products on my skin and this Dr.Hauschka limited-edition Revitalising Feel Good Ritual kit is the perfect way to pamper my skin with a thorough deep cleanse.

There are three Dr.Hauschka Intensive Care sets: The Revitalising Feel Good Ritual, Harmonising Feel Good Ritual and lastly the Regenerating Feel Good Ritual. Each set comes with:

  • Clarifying Steam Set
  • Clarifying Clay Mask
  • Facial Mask suitable for your specific skin condition
  • A small porcelain bowl with a mask application brush

All sets retail for R350 in selected outlets.


The ritual begins with a deep cleansing using the Clarifying Steam Bath which opens your pores and relaxes your skin. The witch hazel helps to stimulate the circulation in your skin.

Next mix your Clarifying Clay Mask with a few drops of water. The Clay Mask will deep cleanse and decongest your skin. The medicinal clay and witch hazel in the mask bind with the skin’s metabolic products to help clear your skin of any impurities for a clearer complexion.

TIP: Place a cool slice of cucumber over your eyes while waiting for your mask to dry and do some affirmations.

Lastly apply the Revitalising Mask which revives and refines. It suggested leaving it on your skin for 20min but I used it under my day cream as my skin was in need of some serious hydration after a week of back to back shoots.


Excuse the scary no make-up picture of me but I wanted to show you how amazing this product is. It evened out my complexion and left my skin feeling like a baby’s bottom.
