Looking good and maintaining a youthful appearance is the mantra of today’s society and youthful means a healthy lifestyle, healthy diet and a well cared for skin.  Skin Aging caused by environmental and other external influences and in fact often by the very skincare we use has more influence on the aging process than our genetic disposition.

Some of the major caused of premature aging are: Excessive unprotected exposure to the sun, free radicals, chemical ingredients, fragrance and colorants used in skincare, stress, hormonal imbalances and allergies. 

The visible signs of aging cannot be fully avoided, but can be dramatically minimized.  The key is to do it as gently as possible.  As far as the skin is concerned there are two types of aging - intrinsic and extrinsic.

Intrinsic aging

Involves the inevitable; as we grow older, our skin naturally becomes thinner and drier.  A diminishing production of collagen makes the skin less elastic.  What used to bounce back begins to sag and deep wrinkles may begin appearing.  The rate of these events is genetically determined for each person; the process first becomes noticeable between the ages of 30 and 35.

Extrinsic aging

Results from exposure to the environment.  Extrinsic aging is the critical element in determining who looks older or younger than their biological age.  Exposure to sunlight is a key contributor to extrinsic aging.  Photo aging results when elastin and collagen breakdown occurs causing fine lines and wrinkles to intensify.  Photo aging results when elastin and collagen breakdown occurs causing fine lines and wrinkles to intensify.  Photo aging also causes pigment changes resulting in the development of age spots (sun-induced freckles) and uneven skin tone.  Spider veins and dilated capillaries are another sign of a photo aged skin.  Lifestyle choices also have an impact on extrinsic aging.

Free Radicals: 

The free radical theory is the most widely accepted theory of aging.  On the cellular level, they are responsible for severe damage, destroying the cell membrane, DNA, RNA, Collagen and Elastin structures.  We need the anti-oxidants to scoop up the free radical before they can damage the ells.  Te anti oxidants must be non toxic otherwise they will damage the skin.  Is is also essential the anti oxidant has to et to the site where protection is needed.

Dr Baumann MultiActive Liposome E+C contains high concentrations of anti-Free Radical vitamin E, C and A.  the Liposomes present in the products transfer essential ingredients to defend the skin from further free radical damage and will repair damaged cell membranes so that the cells remain intact and healthy.


Receptor sites for hormones cannot function when the cell looses fluidity and this speeds up the aging process.  All Dr Baumann MultiActive Liposomes contain high concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid and Urea that will help to re-hydrate the cell membranes allowing essential nutrients to pass into the cells, waste products to leave the cells that the functions that ensure a youthful healthy skin can be carried out successfully.


Stress causes a number of chemical reactions in the body.  It affects the minerals in our body such as iron and copper creating free radicals.  These free radicals attack our cell membranes and further accelerate the aging process.  When sugar molecules attach themselves to your Collagen fibers, they trigger a series of spontaneous chemical reactions.  These  culminate in gradual and irreversible cross links between adjoining collagen molecules and this cross linking leads to a loss of elasticity and to lines and wrinkles on the skin.  Try Yoga, or meditation in order to build on your inner strengths and to find your inner quiet place.


A lack of proteins is noticeable in the face where the features become soft and less defined.  If you do not receive sufficient protein the body is forced to feed on itself and this causes both a tissue and muscle breakdown and a slack appearance to the skin.  This simple fact of life can change the way you look beginning with your next meal.

Focus on Water:

The fountain of youth is definitely Water.  Forever young means drink water, drink water and drink water.  If you do not drink water your organs and cells cannot function.  How can your skin be soft and plumped up if you don’t drink the elixir of life?  Without adequate water you cannot metabolize fat, nor can your body nor can your body flush wastes from the cells.  A dehydrated body encourages aging so treat yourself to delicious tasting spring water it is the best deal.

Essential skincare for the prevention of premature aging:

  • Anti Oxidant Creams and serums- All the Dr Baumann MultiActive Liposomes, Dr Baumann Multi Vitamin Lotion, MultiActive Vitamin E+C.
  • Sun protection Dr Baumann Sun and Solarium.
  • Food Supplements: Dr Baumann Food supplement containing all the elements needed for a healthy skin.  Dr Baumann Omega 3 food Supplement.

It is great providing your skin with anti-oxidants daily through your Dr Baumann Skincare, but for excellent results, Vitamins and minerals in your diet is essential for healthier skin.

Fresh fruit and vegetables are chock-full of nutrients, they zing straight into your bloodstream, revitalizing body and brain, making you feel and look fantastic.  Yes, they do take ten minutes or so to make but the benefits far outweigh the nuisance factor!  There are masses of wonderful combinations, so experiment: you really can’t go wrong.  One fruit to always remember is Watermelon, as it contain more antioxidants than any other fruit.

Combine your new anti-oxidant ‘juicing’ tips with the following:

  • Cleanse your skin twice, morning and evening, with your Dr Baumann Cleanser of choice.  Execute light circular movements, concentrating on congested areas.  Rinse, or wipe with a cloth or facial sponges.
  • Apply the Dr Baumann MultiActive Liposome E+C onto a clean face, morning and evening.  The Liposome will transport the high concentrations of Vitamin E and Vitamin C  deeper into the skin to protect and repair from environmental stressors.
  • Apply the Dr Baumann Multi Vitamin Lotion for an extra surge of Vitamin, e, as well as Vitamin A.
  • Don’t forget your body!  Apply the Dr Baumann Body Lotion Super daily, morning and evening, and really pamper your skin!  Besides Shea Butter and Jojoba oil, does this lotion also contain Natural Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid for silky smooth, youthful looking skin.

APPLICATION TIPS: Protect against aging

Not so long ago, the only true turn-the-clock-back option was cosmetic surgery.  Drastic stuff.  But today, new and faster age-defying techniques are booming.  Liposomes, Nanosomes and Ceramides are all words that you want to hear when protecting against aging.  Dr Baumann Cosmetics has perfected the art of protection against aging, with the revolutionary Multilayer Liposome!  Usually Liposomes have a limited degree of penetration, although having 12 layers ensure delivery of essential nutrients and vitamins straight to the Basal layer!  Also Nanosomes can transport oily vitamins, such as Vitamin E to the Basal layer and beyond!  Ceramides strengthens the barrier function of the horny layer, which means  a dry, flaky skin works much more effectively.

Try this recipe for the best protection against aging:

  • Cleanse your skin twice, morning and evening, with your Dr Baumann Cleanser of choice.  Execute light circular movements, concentrating on congested areas.  Rinse, or wipe with a cloth or facial sponges.
  • Apply the Dr Baumann MultiActive Ceramide onto a clean face, morning and evening.  The Liposome will transport active ingredients deeper into the skin, while the Ceramides strengthen the barrier function of the upper layer of the skin.
  • Apply the Dr Baumann Sensitive Normal and Dry Skin Cream daily, morning and evening.  This Beautifully gentle cream contains Jojoba oil,  Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Provitamin B5, Urea and Lactic acid to protect without irritation.
  • Remember your chest!  Prevent lines and sagging of your breast by applying the Dr Baumann Decollete Special lotion, daily.  You can rest assured that no harmful ingredients can cause havoc in this area, only a great lift!

Liposome MultiActive Ceramid

In addition this product contains ceramides. The ceramides, together with the phospholipids of the liposomes, are important components of the intercellular substance between the skin cells, and display their effect in the upper layer of the skin. This strengthens the barrier function of the horny layer, which means a dry, flaky skin works much more effectively. Contains no essential oils, chamomile or tea tree oil.

A young skin renews its surface layers every two to three weeks.  Over time, as we age and our skin experience sun, stress, pollution, poor diet and poor water intake, the cell turnover rate slows down causing the upper most layer of the skin to become thicker.  Old cells accumulate and stay on the surface longer and the flow of moisture slows down, resulting in a dull lifeless skin.

The secret is, to use skincare that will stimulate the skin regeneration without irritation.  Here’s how:

  • Cleanse the skin twice, morning and evening, with the Dr Baumann Cleansing Gel.  This rich but foamy emulsion removes impurities, while gently nourishing the skin with Macadamia Nut Oil.
  • Apply the BeauCaire Liposome Super onto a clean skin, morning and evening, to ensure a deeper penetration of active substances.  The additional Nanosomes assist in transporting oily vitamins such as Vitamin E and A to the Basal layer and beyond!
  • Apply 4 drops of the Vitamin A ampoule, morning and evening, prior to your cream.  Regular and consistent application of Vitamin A can regenerate damaged skin cells and boost the skin’s collagen concentration.

Cleansing Gel

A mild cleansing gel which contains very gentle cleansing substances. For anyone who prefers a foaming cleanser or wants to gently remove oiliness from the skin.
