There’s some common questions that regularly feature for both new and existing customers. We do do things differently from the way you are likely to have been taught with conventional products.
It’s important to our team here at Dr. Hauschka Australia that you are getting the most beneficial results from your Products and our Daily Rituals and here’s how…
We have two cleansers for your daily cleansing needs.
Why? Because your skin has differing cleansing requirements at each end of the day.
Cleansing Cream gently deep cleanses after the night time elimination activity of your skin and also prepares your skin for day time protection.
How to use:
a) Mix with water to create an emulsion, not a paste
b) Cleanse with our gentle ‘Press and Roll’ technique, do not a scrub.
See our Morning Ritual Video
Cleansing Milk is your make-up and eye make-up remover plus it cleans your skin from the dirt and dust it picks up during the day. Gentle and effective cleansing that does not disrupt the skin’s acid mantle and therefore supports our no night cream stance.
Our Toners are not to be used on cotton pads, they are hydrating treatment products containing active botanicals and are different from a conventional toner.
Use: Close your eyes and mist directly onto skin.
Conventional toners are used on cotton wool (which absorbs a huge amount of product by the way) to remove residual cleansing product.
Clarifying Toner contains Echinacea for its anti-bacterial properties and Daisy for its anti-inflammatory benefits. Facial Toner contains Witch Hazel for its astringent properties and one of our key ingredients, balancing Anthyllis.
Tip: Hydrate your skin with our Toner at any time. We keep a bottle in our desk to hydrate our skin during the day.
3) Doing it differently with day care
We only need to use a small amount of Day Care because our formulas are all so concentrated, for instance there’s 30 organic or biodynamic roses in every tube of Rose Day Cream!
How to use:
a) Warm a large pea size between the palms of your hands to melt the plant waxes
b) Apply using the entirety of your palms from the centre of the face outwards in the direction of lymph flow
c) Apply to skin still moist from Toner to ensure even and economical application
Please note: If you didn’t apply in this manner you would think Rose Day Cream, particularly, is way too thick and you would ‘overuse’ it.
4) No Night Cream
Your skin metabolises and eliminates during the night time. Think of it as your skin needing to ‘breathe’. Using oil free night care supports this process. One month, a skin cell cycle, and you won’t need any more convincing!
a) If you feel your skin needs a ‘little more’ mist your Toner a second time in the evening.
b) Cleanse early in the evening, apply Moisturising Mask, removing prior to bedtime if you feel your skin is going through a stage of needing more moisture.
b) Toner and Regenerating Serum
c) Instead of Toner in the evening, Rhythmic Conditioners for a 30 night treatment. Skin cell cycle is 28-30 days.
d) Instead of Toner, Intensive Treatment 01, 02, 03, 04 or 05 as a complete treatment product in the one bottle and used in the morning and evening.
“I am only a couple of weeks into the ‘no night cream’ regime, I’m using Toner and Serum, and it has been the biggest shock to realise that I don’t need heavy night creams. My skin looks great in the mornings and my eyes haven’t been ‘puffy’. I should have done this much, much earlier.”
5) Colour and Care
As your skin improves, to that typical Dr. Hauschka healthy and radiant skin, you should need less Translucent Make-up but if you do need more coverage initially, use a double application of Translucent Make-up.
Tip: Always ‘set’ your make-up with Translucent Powder Loose or Translucent Powder Compact, alternatively my favourite at the moment is Illuminating Powder which gives an instant uplift to your complexion. You’ll really notice this clever powder in photos, as the light reflects off the subtle luminosity.
