Make-up Tips you’ll love, plus Slow Mood colours

Slow Mood POSTER

Serenity takes visible form in the Slow Mood limited edition Make-up from Dr.Hauschka in earthy tones.

The soft cinnamon and deep bronze brown tones and the peach and pine green of the two Slow Mood Eyeshadow Duos and the two Slow Mood Kajal Eyeliners in green and brown gently highlight the eyes.
They harmonise with the colours of the two Slow Mood Lipsticks in translucent, shimmering nude and a delicate berry shade.

Slow Mood Illuminating Powder provides a soft, radiance for the complexion.

Colour and Care

Make-up from natural ingredients and a formula that not only enhances, it also nurtures the skin. It makes perfect sense when you’ve made the decision to use natural and organic skin care to follow that decision through with the highest quality natural make-up.  Plant oils and waxes, mineral pigments and selected medicinal herbs make this possible.

Make-up Tips:

blending brush-81x165

1)  For an ‘airbrushed’ look to your foundation, apply Dr.Hauschka Translucent Make-up with your fingertips, then blend it in circular movements with a Foundation Blending Brush.  This is a natural hair brush with nylon tips.

If you prefer not to use your fingers then use a Foundation Brush.

2)  ‘Set’ Translucent Make-up with our absolute favourite, Slow Mood Illuminating Powder, made using real silk powder.  Apply with a Powder Brush.  The luminosity gives your skin an instant ‘lift’.  A must if you’re having a photo taken too, the luminosity reflects back the camera flash.  Because this product is so uplifting and a limited edition I had to stock up!

3)  We notice many faces with foundation but the colour hasn’t been put back in with bronzer and/or blusher. Even out skin tone with Translucent Make-up, but you must put the colour back in.  Think of a child’s skin and those lovely pink cheeks.

Slow Mood fan brush tip-232x202

4) Use a Fan Brush to take Bronzing Powder down your face, then it will just automatically touch the places the sun kisses as you go down the face with the brush. Quick and easy!

5) Smile at yourself in the mirror and use a fan brush with your Blusher to the ‘apples’ of the cheeks. We don’t want 80’s ‘racing stripes’ up your cheekbone. 🙂

Tips for Eyeshadow Application:

We love the browns, they’re neutral and always useful, in saying that, every single person we applied the peach/green combination too, it really did enhance their eyes.

Slow Mood Kajal Eye Pencils – 06 Eucalyptus Dew & 07 Mellow Sienna

1) First and foremost invest in a magnifying mirror and place it so you are looking down into it for a perfect eye make-up.

Slow Mood eyeshadow tip-393x126
Apply light tones in the natural ‘valley’ beside the nose, in this case we have used the peach tone, and the darker green colour has been apply from the outer, towards the inner.

2) Always apply your deeper colour with a brush FROM THE OUTER, TO THE INNER.  Most of us apply from the inner towards the outer and wonder why we have so much shadow that we’re having difficulty blending away, with colour seemingly dragging our eye downwards.
It really makes the world of difference applying from the outer, inwards.

3) There’s already a ‘valley’ naturally beside your nose, so only use light tones in that area.

Kajal Eye Pencil Tip:

Our eye pencils are made from the finest natural ingredients, they won’t drag the delicate skin around your eyes.  Once Kajal Eye Pencil is applied, then ‘set’ the pencil with our eyeshadow using a Eye Definer Brush.

‘Cupid’s Bow’ Lip Tip:

With your fingertip pick up a little of the Illuminating Powder and dab at the ‘Cupid’s Bow’ of the lips before starting your lip colour.  You will see this tip gives the area a subtle highlight.

From Karim Sattar, our International Make-up Artist

Karim Sattar Lip Tip:

Apply Lipstick, dab with a tissue, using your Powder Puff contained in Illuminating Powder, press a little powder onto your lips, then reapply Lipstick, for longer lasting lip colour.

We all need a ‘new look’ make-up from time to time and I think it’s always best to book in and have your make-up done for you.  You’ll get to learn a few tips and tricks too.

Check out our Dr. Hauschka Estheticians and Dr. Hauschka Stockists who stock ‘Decorative Cosmetics’ and you can always book in for a make-up.

Acne, Blemishes & Combination Skin Condition

Screen Shot 2013-08-20 at 8.46.15 AM

Puberty brings about such increases in hormonal activity that most pre-teens, teens and often into the 20’s or 30’s are likely to experience acne or pimples. The liver has to metabolise the increased hormonal activity and one of the many functions of our skin is to act as an elimination organ, blemishes are the result.  Pores open to cope with the additional oil production.

Indeed any hormonal activity such as monthly cycle, pregnancy, post natal or menopause may induce break-outs.

Tips:

  • Lemon juice and warm water first thing, before breakfast, every morning, helps to keep skin clear.
  • Use hands to cleanse skin, with your morning Cleansing Cream, much more hygienic than flannels or alternatively use a Dr. Hauschka Compress or Cleansing Sponge and wash and dry in sunlight daily.  Ideally also change pillow slip daily.
  • Eat fresh nutritious food and drink plenty of water.  If you know chocolate is a culprit for you then steer clear of it.
  • Wash hands frequently and don’t touch your face or pick, because of the bacteria on your hands or under your nails.
  • Don’t use lathering, overly alkaline or harsh exfoliant type cleansers that ‘strip’ the skin resulting in even more oil production by the skin to compensate. These overly harsh cleansers also disrupt the acid mantle of the skin, and the acidic environment of a healthy skin is our protection against bacteria.
  • Tip from Jose, our Esthetician Trainer Manager, “Never ever squeeze”, says Jose, “as this often brings about collapse of the follicle wall and infection in the deeper levels of the skin, which could result in cystic acne”.

Recommended Regime

Morning:
Cleansing Cream

Our morning deep cleanse with almond meal that binds particularly well to the night time elimination activities of the skin, yet respects the pH of the skin. The slightly acidic environment of a healthy skin is your protection against bacteria. Cleansing Cream is a first priority product.

How to use – see our ‘Press & Roll’ technique on our ‘Morning Cleansing Routine’ video

Clarifying Toner

Just close eyes and mist onto skin. Contains Echinacea (anti- bacterial properties) and Daisy (anti- inflammatory properties).
Shaving can be such an aggravating factor for guys too and Clarifying Toner is the perfect ‘after shave’ as well.

Normalising Day Oil

With this product we are incorporating homeopathic guidelines, ‘like treats like’ – an oil for an oily skin.  Normalising Day Oil regulates oil production and also contains Wild Carrot extract, a rich source of pro-Vitamin A, one of the skin healing vitamins. Use only 1-3 drops on skin still moist with Toner, it’s rapidly absorbed.  We know it’s hard to get your head around using an oil on an already oily skin.  Just give it a chance, 30 days is approximately a skin cell cycle.

Combination Skin

Screen Shot 2013-08-20 at 8.52.23 AM

Combination skin can be a combination of any skin conditions, however it usually refers to a skin condition that has an oily t-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and dry to normal cheeks.

Recently UK’s ‘Beauty Bible’ announced that 60% of us have Combination Skin!

Morning:
Cleansing Cream
Clarifying Toner
Melissa Day Cream, specific for mediating between dry and oily areas of the face, with a matte texture helping to control shine.  Melissa (aka Lemon Balm) is a refreshing ‘lemony’ smelling medicinal plant.  The aroma of this product is cheerful and uplifting.

Pure Care Cover Stick to conceal and treat pimples. See above.

Translucent Make-up and Translucent Powder – make- up that’s good for your skin.

Evening:
Cleansing Milk
Clarifying Toner

Remember, no night cream, your skin needs to ‘breathe’ at night, doing it’s job of elimination unimpeded, we only recommend aqueous based products for the night.

Extra Care for Acne, Blemishes or a Combination Skin

Facial Steam Bath
Facial Steam Bath

Once a week complete a Facial Steam Bath and Cleansing Clay Mask, followed by a Rejuvenating Mask which helps to refine pores and helps aid healing for any new scarring. On another night of the week cleanse early in the evening and apply Rejuvenating Mask, leaving it to absorb all evening, removing with a tepid Compress before bedtime.

Cleansing Clay Mask
Cleansing Clay Mask

In severe cases of post-acne scarring, apply a very thin layer of Rejuvenating Mask to the affected areas, before applying your Normalising Day Oil or Melissa Day Cream and make-up. Then it can work on your skin all day.

Note: Conventional make-up usually contains petro-chemical ingredients which are occlusive to the skin and therefore exacerbate blemishes.

Try mixing a little Translucent Bronze Concentrate with your Normalising Day Oil or Melissa Day Cream to help even skin tone.

Intensive Treatment 01 for Acne under 25 and Intensive Treatment 02 for Acne over 25 – are a one bottle, one Treatment product that lasts approximately 30 days, used morning and evening instead of Clarifying Toner.

Recommendation:  Acne is a condition that needs to be managed and we highly recommend making an appointment with one of our Dr. Hauschka Trained Estheticians for a Facial Treatment specific to your skin condition and a consultation.

What is Biodynamic agriculture?

Hand harvesting of Echinacea in WALA/Dr. Hauschka Biodynamic Gardens
Hand harvesting of Echinacea in WALA/Dr. Hauschka Biodynamic Gardens

Dr.Hauschka Skin Care believes that the essential element of health and beauty begins in healthy soil. Healthy soil is the living foundation of the foods we eat and the high vitality botanicals in our skin care products. Healthy soil is the focus of biodynamic agriculture which produces plants of exceptional vitality. Dr.Hauschka Skin Care has a preference for ingredients that are biodynamically grown and transforms these biodynamic botanicals into pure, effective therapeutic products.

The 1920’s saw the dawn of biodynamics; an agricultural practice based on the concept of the farm as a living organism. Farms, or in our case, medicinal plant gardens, are viewed as complete ecosystems, taking into account the microcosmic elements of soil, plants, animals and humans and the macrocosmic elements of the sun, moon and planets. The biodynamic farmer actively studies the relationships between all of these, supporting through agricultural methods the way the elements of the macrocosm reality affect those of the microcosm. Detailed and methodological planting calendars are made by The Biodynamic Association which the gardeners use to guide them for conducive times to sow, plant and harvest by indicating the phases of the sun, the moon other planets.

A biodynamic farm/medicinal plant garden is self-sufficient. It endeavours to function independently of resources outside the farm, striving instead to cultivate nutrient rich soil without chemical fertilisers or, to use its own seeds and produce its own animal feed, all of which maintain a state of balance that benefits the whole farm. An essential part of this self-sufficient process, is composting as well as preparing and using what is known as the ‘biodynamic preparations’; potentised substance/materials derived from plants, minerals and animals, which stimulate living processes native to the soil. The gardeners use these various biodynamic preparations which encourage the composting process and strengthen plant resistance to pests and disease.

The results of such attentive agricultural practices are recognisable in the high quality, high vitality and rich nutritional content of biodynamic plants.

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care and Biodynamics

In the 1930’s Dr. Rudolf Hauschka and his associates co-founded WALA-Heilmittel, a pharmaceutical company inspired by the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner’s teachings, including biodynamics, to develop new approaches to homeopathic medicines and human health. The approximately 4.5 hectares of gardens that provide most of the botanicals used in WALA’s pharmaceutical and personal care products have been biodynamic for some 50 years. In 1967 Dr. Rudolf Hauschka and Elisabeth Sigmund launched Dr.Hauschka Skin Care products.

The Dr. Hauschka Classic Facial Treatment

Lymph stimulation with brushes
Lymph stimulation with brushes

‘To call this experience a facial is to demean it.  It is a total mind, body and spirit pamperfest’.  
Beauty Editor, Harpers & Queen UK

The classical Dr.Hauschka Skin Care Treatment is unlike any other.  It begins with a warm, aromatic foot bath, followed by a soothing arm and leg massage.  The treatment flows smoothly to all parts of the body as the esthetician relaxes the head and neck before beginning the facial treatment.

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

The face is cleansed and purified using a comfortably warm compress immersed in Lavender.  A herbal steam bath and deep cleansing mask are followed by a unique Dr.Hauschka lymph stimulation method.  Through finely executed brush and hand movements the lymph is gently stimulated and harmonised, strengthening the entire body, mind and soul.  The client then experiences the application of a personalised ampoule or Intensive Treatment and relaxes with a cream mask while at the same time enjoying a relaxing neck, shoulder and décolleté massage.  The treatment concludes with a tepid lemon compress and the application of day care if appropriate.

The result, expressed in radiant skin, is beauty and a sense of well-being that often lasts for days.

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Each new client receives a comprehensive skin consultation and analysis plus discussion of any particular skin concerns with product prescription and skin care regime. Because many of our application techniques, philosophy and products are completely unique it’s important that our new clients know exactly what to use and how to use it to gain optimal results.

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

The facial will be regenerative, purifying, firming or soothing depending on skin requirement at the time, or indeed a blend if the Dr. Hauschka trained Esthetician deems that most appropriate for your individual skin condition. Seasonal aspects will be taken into account as well.
