1. Hydration for a plump, uplifted skin, drink water, coconut water, green tea, herbals teas, eat watermelon. Warm water and lemon juice first thing every morning helps to keep skin clear.

2. Schedule a monthly Facial Treatment with a Dr. Hauschka trained Esthetician.

3. Remember Body Care, Hand and Nail Care and Foot Care too, especially if you’re wearing strappy shoes with heels on show. Moisturising is key and once you use Dr. Hauschka Body Moisturisers it’s hard to accept anything of lesser quality. Natural and organic ingredients are just as important for your body. We love Quince Body Moisturiser for its cooling, soothing and deeply hydrating qualities, Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Moisturising for its refreshing and energising aroma and After Sun is another of our summer time favourites. For a mature bride then choose Regenerating Body Cream for its firming and toning as well as deeply nourishing abilities.

If your feet are dry, particularly check your heels, use Hydrating Foot Cream, however if you have feet with a tendency to perspire then use Deodorising Foot Cream. Hand Cream and Neem Nail Oil Pen are a must.

4. Kissable lips with regular use of Lip Care Stick or Lip Balm.

5. Clean your make-up brushes weekly to avoid acne causing bacteria and to ensure true colours. Always clean your brushes in an ecological gentle hand wash or body wash and dry flat not upstanding. As for pimples always have Coverstick on hand for concealing and treating, incredible product!

6. Get your beauty sleep.

7. Regular exercise, 30 minutes daily in the fresh air will do. Movement supports your body’s lymph system.

8. Nutrition, eat fresh, organic wherever possible. Read 15 Top Foods for Healthy Skin

9. It’s really important to reduce stress. If you’re not already then meditate daily, do yoga, tai chi, read a great book, spend time with great friends, whatever it takes, as stress shows on your face.

10. We want your skin looking radiant for your big day. Ideally you need to be taking extra special care of your skin 1 year out, however if you don’t have that amount of time adopt these skin care rituals as soon as possible. A healthy, balanced, vibrant skin comes from using the highest quality natural and organic ingredients, not synthetic chemicals.

1) Dr. Hauschka every morning ritual: Cleanse, Tone or use Intensive Treatment & Moisturise
2) Dr. Hauschka every evening ritual: Cleanse, Tone or use 1 ampoule of Conditioner, or Intensive Treatment
3) Once a week, maybe a Sunday night, Cleanse, Clarifying Steam Bath, Clarifying Clay Mask and follow with Revitalising Mask which benefits all skin conditions
4) Another night of the week Cleanse early in the evening, apply Revitalising Mask and include eye contour area, leave to absorb for as long as possible and remove with a warm, moist cloth prior to bedtime

Tip: We recommend Soothing Intensive Treatment morning and evening instead of Toner one month out from wedding for hypersensitive skin or a skin suffering from any stress condition.

10 Wedding Make-up Tips

1. Do your brow, upper lip and any other facial waxing at least 3 days before the wedding
2. Avoid products that use SPF, they tend to give very pale look in photographs
3. Use a matte moisturiser on the day, Melissa Day Cream has a very matte finish and helps to control shine or Rose Day Cream Light
4. For a long lasting make-up go for our International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar’s technique of:
a) Translucent Make-up 00 as a primer
b) Concealer, inner eye only, not outer eye
c) Translucent Powder Loose, applied with Powder Brush and tapped to remove excess before applying
d) Translucent Make-up in your shade, always apply with a foundation blender brush for that ‘air-brushed’ look
e) Translucent Powder again, applied with Powder Brush and tapped before applying. Think less is more, you don’t want a caked look.
5. Blusher and Bronzer is a must.
6. Take it easy on the shimmer. Highlight on cheek bones and/or brow bone is flattering but too much shimmer doesn’t photograph well
7. Set your lipstick with Karim’s technique:
a) Apply Lipliner over the entire lip area, don’t do outlines
b) Apply Lipstick
c) ‘Kiss’ a tissue to remove excess
d) Apply Translucent Powder Loose with the powder puff
e) Apply Lipstick again
f) Apply a dap of Rose or Cherry Gloss mid bottom lip
8. Consider false lashes rather than mascara for the big day. Individual lashes are more natural looking, but always trial before the wedding day
9. Have a Translucent Powder Compact with you for touch-ups. Oily shine doesn’t photograph well, you need to keep skin matte
10. Keep in mind if you’re wearing white you will need enough colour happening in your make-up to compensate for the whiteness of your dress. Always do a trial run of your make-up wearing white, tee shirt will do, prior to the day.

Radiance Make-up by Karim

Screen Shot 2014-09-03 at 9.51.27 am

Shine with Radiance

The festive season beckons once again. During this special time of year, a woman likes to shine. And a radiant, shimmering make-up puts her in the spotlight for a memorable appearance. It underscores her inner radiance, which glows even brighter than the festive lights, and turns a holiday celebration into a five-star occasion.

This year, the colours of the season are soft, natural and warm. They glimmer and shine, revealing the inner spark that is within every woman – in keeping with the festive spirit. Internationally renowned Dr. Hauschka Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar, has created a vivacious make-up look specifically for such special occasions, dominated by shades of gold, sand and brown accentuated with a delicate rosé. It showcases an even complexion and extremely dramatic, shining eyes. Fresh, gently shimmering lips add a luminous note. He also combines delicate rosé with a hint of ivory for a festive, radiant glow on the cheeks.

Karim Sattar guides you through the steps to create the perfect look for special occasions.

Start with an even complexion

“Ideally, you should start with foundation. Use a foundation brush or a make-up sponge to apply a small amount of Dr. Hauschka Translucent Make-up 00 as a ‘primer’This shade suits almost every skin tone, evens out the complexion, and provides the perfect base for the second nuance of colour that is actually part of the look.

Select the Translucent-Make-up shade that is best for your colouring – Pale Sand (01), Beige Rosé (02), Suntan (03) or Mocca (04). This will enliven your face with a touch of freshness. Follow with Translucent Face Powder Loose to set the make-up, placing a small amount on the powder puff and using it to mattify the face as desired.”

Dramatic eyes

“First use Kajal Eyeliner 04 Soft Brown to highlight the lower lashline and the upper eyelid. Apply the Kajal Eyeliner along the crease of the upper lid, covering about one-third from the outside working inward, as well as along the lower lashline. In addition, use Kajal Eyeliner to fill in the space between the lashline and the crease of the lid and gently smudge it on the upper eyelid up to the crease and on the lower eyelid to the inner corner of the eye.

Next, apply Eyeshadow Solo 04 Taupe to the upper eyelid in the outer corner of the eye and to the lower eyelid, gently smoothing in the eyeshadow.

For sparkling highlights, apply Eyeshadow Solo 01 Golden Sand to the inner part of the upper eyelid and under the eyebrow.

Finally, apply Eyeshadow Solo 02 Golden Earth in the centre of the eyelid to gently blend the colours. For best results, use a blender brush to finish the look.

To strongly accentuate the lashline, use Kajal Eyeliner 04 Soft Brown to draw a line along the edges of the upper and lower eyelids and carefully blend it in. Then apply the white eyeliner from Kajal Eyeliner Duo 01 White/Anthracite to the inner lower eyelid to make the eyes look larger and more alert.

If you want to give the eyes an even more dramatic touch, apply Eyeliner Liquid Brown along the upper lashline. Start at the middle of the upper lashline, first dabbing inward towards the corner of the eye, then turn the brush and work from the middle towards the outside.

Tip: Two layers of Volume Mascara 01 Black add the final polish to this five-star look.

This season, the focus is on the eyebrows

Use a eyebrow brush for shaping, then choose a shade from Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadow Palette 01 that matches your hair colour and apply it to the eyebrows. Colour 02 Mushroom is suitable for lighter hair; for darker hair, I recommend colour 03 Taupe. After applying, use Dr. Hauschka Eye Contour Day Balm to set the colour. This not only showcases the eyebrows, but also hydrates a part of your skin that tends to be dry.

Delicate cheeks that sparkle and shimmer

Apply Rouge Powder 03 Blushing Rosé to the upper cheekbones for a fresh, vibrant look. Achieve shimmering highlights by moistening Eyeshadow Solo 09 Ivory slightly and dabbing it onto the upper cheekbone using a make-up sponge. This gives you a fresh, dewy appearance which will turn heads.

The finishing touch – shining, rosy lips

Outline your lips with Lipliner 03 Soft Rosé. Next, use Lipstick 01 Soft Coral to entirely fill in both lips. For a festive shine, finish the look by applying Lip Gloss 01 Rose to the lips.

Now your radiant, shimmering make-up is complete – guaranteed to put you in the spotlight and make the evening an unforgettable occasion!”

Why is there no Dr.Hauschka night cream?

The Dr. Hauschka oil-free night care regime supports the nocturnal metabolism of the skin because this is the time when this activity is at its maximum. Instead of burdening the natural elimination processes with oily skin care products, the Dr. Hauschka night care programme consists of products containing stimulating and regenerating plant essences. These allow the skin to breathe freely and overcome any weaknesses and imbalances. Healthy and beautiful skin is the result.

Dr. Hauschka Treatment products for the night are:
– Basic Night Care: Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner and Regenerating Serum (if appropriate to support a maturing skin)
– OR Intensive 30 night treatment: Renewing Night Conditioner or Sensitive Care Conditioner or one of our Intensive Treatments for specific skin concerns

Rule of thumb to keep it simple: 
Use Conditioner in Spring (September) and Autumn (March)
Use Intensive Treatment in Summer (December) and Winter (June)
In between use Toner (and Regenerating Serum if appropriate)

However, ideally Conditioners should be used once per year per 10 years of life, e.g. if 30 years old do 3 Conditioner 28 day treatments per year.

Revitalising Mask lives up to its name

Screen Shot 2014-10-13 at 11.58.40 am

As an intensive care product, it re-enlivens stagnant processes and stimulates the skin’s natural powers.

Our most versatile cream mask; soothing and cooling for a sensitive or sun stressed skin, enlivening for a mature skin and deep cleansing for a blemished skin. Quince Seed extract for moisture, Bentonite Clay to soothe the skin and give a deep cleansing action and calming Chamomile. Revitalising Mask is your ‘go to’ mask!

“I adore this mask twice a week, it does wonders as a skin pick-me-up.” 

“I always choose Revitalising Mask to even skin tone and refine pores before a special event.”

Intensive care products such as face masks provide well being for stressed and tired skin. Used regularly, they provide preventative care and help the skin activate it’s own natural powers as protection against external influences.

Fortification for the skin and soul
Various influences such as pollution, a poor diet and a hectic lifestyle destroy the natural balance of not only our skin but also our general wellness leaving us feeling frail and drained. Treating yourself to a little more than your basic day-to-day facial care regime can truly work wonders. In addition to the physical aim of helping tone the skin, a face mask is also a beauty ritual that we plan and take some time out for. Through this alone, we create a sense of well-being for our skin and soul.

A mask for everyone
A broad range of nourishing masks exists for the many different skin conditions. What makes Revitalising Mask special is that it is suitable and benefits all skin conditions. The mask was developed on the basis of a herbal medicine that combats hard scar tissue through the use of natural substances that have smoothing properties and promote regeneration. Inspired by this, the aim was to create an intensive skin care product for the skin care sector that helps reduce blemishes such as acne scars by structuring and soothing stressed skin.

The result was a product made from quince, anthyllis and chamomile, all of which are medicinal plants. Together, they promote the skin’s natural ability to firm and shape the skin and stimulate circulation. Quince seed extract is particularly characterised by highly soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. It also regulates the skin’s natural moisture levels. The formulation is rounded off by high-quality jojoba, apricot kernel and wheat germ oils, which purify and smoothen the skin. The pleasant, revitalising effect can be just what you need at the end of a strenuous day. A nourishing mask that offers well being for all skin. Simply lie back and enjoy.

– Also apply to eye contour as an eye mask
– You can mix a little Revitalising Mask with your usual Dr. Hauschka day care for a month for a skin boost
– Skin treat with Clarifying Steam Bath, then Clarifying Clay Mask, followed by Revitalising Mask, your skin will love you for it!

Please note: Revitalising Mask was formerly named Rejuvenating Mask
