What Are Our Susanne Kaufmann Insider's Top Tips for Holistic Beauty?

Discover the go-to beauty tips of our founder and expert trainers for long-lasting glowing skin health.

Susanne Kaufmann, Founder Susanne Kaufmann Cosmetics

  • What’s your favourite skin food?

Ginger. Nothing better boosts the immune system and fights a lack of energy and a dull complexion than freshly pressed ginger with lemon. When I don’t have access to fresh ginger, I recommend adding lemon with one tablespoon of vinegar (preferably, apple cider vinegar) and warm water. It will stimulate your metabolism.

  • What is your ultimate skincare tip that everyone should know?

A result of stress is an increase in hyperacidity in the body. An acidic environment can have negative effects on the body and skin as it enables bacteria to develop faster. For this reason, it is so important to neutralise the ph levels of your skin and recreate a basic milieu. I love to drink our Neutralising Alkali Tea or alkali water. For your skin, I recommend bathing with our Alkali Salts, and try cleansing your face with alkali water where possible.

  • What is your skincare ritual?

I often take a bath in the evening which is great for unwinding and relaxing the mind. I love to do a body and face peel before the bath, apply a rich moisturising face mask during the bath, and finish with a thick layer of our Body Butter mixed with our Pomegranate Body Oil for after. Footbaths are also a great way to look after yourself, and it’s important not to forget our feet. I’ll apply our Foot Cream and then put on some of my cashmere socks for the ultimate foot pamper.

  • What is your favourite product from the Susanne Kaufmann range and why?

I swear by our Rejuvenating Eye Cream, it’s one of my favourite products. I always recommend applying an eye cream daily because the first impression of a person is always reflected through their eyes. I sometimes use it as a mask and put a thick layer around my eyes. It is a wonder weapon – you will look fresh and well-rested the next day. A personal tip of mine is to use both the cooling Eye Rescue Serum and the Rejuvenating Eye Cream. I apply the serum below the eyes and then a small amount of Rejuvenating Eye Cream to the outer corner of the eye, applying any remaining product to the upper eyelid. The combination of both products counteracts wrinkles caused by dryness and keeps my eyes looking fresh and alert.

  • What are your travel must-haves and why?

First, always keep your skin hydrated. I favour a lightweight but intensive moisturiser like our Rejuvenating Day Fluid. When my skin needs more intense hydration, I apply our Moisturising Mask as an overnight treatment, to boost moisture and nourish the complexion.

Always use an SPF on your body and face. Unfortunately, I still see many people who do not protect themselves sufficiently whether on a city trip or the beach. Protecting your skin is the best thing you can do for it in the sun.

Stephanie Rist, Managing Director at Hotel Post Bezau by Susanne Kaufmann

  • What’s your favourite skin food?

The basis of healthy skin is moisture, so my super food for the skin is cucumber as it provides an incredible amount of moisture. Cucumber water is an absolute must, and what is often considered a myth, is for me, a little secret tip  – put cucumber slices on your eyes. Due to its cooling qualities, it has a very decongestant effect and gives your eyes a fresh appearance.

  • What is your ultimate skincare tip that everyone should know?

Beautiful skin starts with the right skincare for your skin type, enough sleep, good nutrition, regular exercise for the facial muscles, and the right people around you. Inner balance is reflected directly on the skin’s surface. Stress and being unhappy brings impurities, redness and first signs of ageing. 

  • What is your skincare ritual?

The evenings are when I take the time to take care of myself and my skin. I apply the Enzyme Exfoliator and then an ampoule of our Pollution Skin Defence System or the Hyaluron Serum, work it in with a few fascia grips, do one to two muscle exercises for the skin, and apply my evening care.

  • What is your favourite product from the Susanne Kaufmann range and why?

Power Mask. I love looking fresh. As a new mum, I often don't have much time for long beauty rituals. The Power Mask instantly refreshes and makes my skin glow. The eye area shows the most about the condition of your health, so I often use the Eye Rescue Serum with the Power Mask as an eye mask. I apply both products in the evening before going to bed and leave them on overnight – this saves time and the results are impressive.

  • What are your travel must-haves and why?

I always have a kit with my favourite travel-size skincare to keep my skin feeling fresh, especially on long-haul flights. When I travel to a seaside destination, I always pack a hair mask because proper care for the hair is  important on the beach. The natural salt in the air can cause hair to look and feel brittle  – I’ll even leave my hair mask in during the whole day at the beach.

Francisca Steinmayer, Manager of European Retail Training & Spa Expert

  • What’s your favourite skin food?

There are three ingredients I always go to keep my skin looking and feeling healthy. Spirulina, for its anti-inflammatory effects, blueberries which are great for detoxifying the skin and body, and oranges for their high concentration of vitamin C which is highly effective at protecting skin cells from damaging free radicals caused by UV exposure.

  • What is your ultimate skincare tip that everyone should know?

Before applying an eye cream, spritz the face with a mist, such as the Multi-Protection Mist. This will help your eye cream to absorb further into the skin to optimize the benefits. I also always recommend applying any leftover eye cream on your fingertips to fine lines around the lips.

  • What is your skincare ritual?

I always try to stay hydrated, get plenty of sleep and start the day with yoga or meditation. To make the most of this time, I apply the Enzyme Exfoliator beforehand and then the Marigold Body Oil to nourish my hair tips. This is a great way to care for your skin, mind, and body at the same time.

  • What is your favourite product from the Susanne Kaufmann range and why?

The Purifying Clay Mask. Formulated with an extract of cucumber, the texture of the mask stays creamy and supple and does not become hard or crack on like other mud-based masks. It moisturises the skin and results in a clear, pore-less, and refined skin texture – great for effectively banishing impurities.

  • What are your travel must-haves and why?

I love the Eye Rescue Serum. After a long day, it instantly refreshes the eye area and I don't even have to touch my face with my hands. And, at last, a good SPF to protect my skin from the sun when I travel.
