The drastic cure - the emergency plan for your stressed skin.

Delicate and sensitive facial skin often only arises from too much care. Completely avoiding care products allows your skin to regenerate. And no, this has nothing to do with horses. But isn't this pony super cute? If your skin is completely out of balance and is sensitive, dry and/or impure despite your careful care, then let us work on your skin care.

The Rosskur – the emergency plan for your stressed skin – Five Skincare

Too much care makes your skin lazy

Our skin is a highly complex organ. It reacts to impulses from inside and outside and constantly balances itself so that we feel comfortable in our bodies. The balance is often only disturbed by our actions. Imagine how many ingredients come onto your skin every day. A cosmetic product easily consists of twenty or more ingredients. That adds up quite a bit over the course of the day. The many substances bother her:

Over-cared for skin becomes lazy and reacts by reducing the skin's own processes. In addition, constant creaming causes the stratum corneum to swell, which disrupts the natural barrier function and causes it to become holey. Now too much of the skin's own water evaporates to the outside and the familiar feeling of tension and dryness sets in. What are we doing? Apply the cream diligently, it feels so dry. And then the game starts again.

Our goal is to help your skin become more independent again and not to prevent its own regeneration processes , but to promote them. This is the only way your skin can look good in the long term. It is important to find the balance between supportive care and self-regeneration.

It's all about the balance

You probably wouldn't have read this far if your skin wasn't driving you crazy. Now less is more. Your skin needs to recover from your beloved 100-ingredients-per-day care and start balancing the inside and outside again.

The horse cure. That's how it's done

Try to avoid skin care products completely for at least three days. Only wash your face with lukewarm water and be careful not to spread toothpaste on half your face.

The beginning will be difficult - so don't worry about the toothpaste 😉 - because your skin has to adjust to the fact that you no longer care for it. Give it time and try to endure it, even if the symptoms worsen at the beginning.

Your skin will learn to take care of itself again and you will soon be able to relax a little, spend less money on care products and be rewarded with balanced skin.

If you can last more than three days – great, extend it as much as you can. (The skin needs several weeks to regenerate). If that doesn't work, take it slow and use a small amount of an organic vegetable oil in the morning after you wash your face and your skin is still damp. No night care, no serums, water, etc. Nada.

If you can't do without make-up, then use a high-quality make-up remover oil, such as our FIVE make-up remover , to remove make-up, but then avoid a care step in the morning.

Conclusion on the horse cure

The Rosskur makes sense if your skin is out of balance due to too many care products. It helps the skin to restore its natural metabolic activity. The long-term goal of the Rosskur is not to stop using products at all in the future, but rather to give the skin a fresh start. As soon as the skin has calmed down, you can start again with a supportive but not overloading skin care routine.
