Every Day – Morning

1) Drink warm water and lemon juice first thing upon waking in the morning and do this every morning. If it’s going to be easier then juice a pile of lemons, put the juice in ice blocks and freeze. Take one block out each night and place in a cup, so you’re ready for the morning. We need to make this habit quick and easy. Aids the body in a clear skin, flushing out toxins, jump starts the digestive tract, aids the liver in its cleansing processes and increases detoxification.

2) Use 5 drops of Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence in your basin cleansing water. We recommend Compress & Hydration + Press & Roll, at the basin, rather than cleansing in your morning shower.

Why do we promote ‘Compress & Hydrate’? 
a) Warming your skin first softens your pores to ensure a much deeper cleanse
b) You will use your cleansing products much more economically
c) Complete by splashing or compressing with cool water after cleansing to activates a minute muscle beside the hair follicle, contraction helps to remove any last remaining dirt
d) Your skin will feel so much softer without the need for harsh exfoliation
e) Check out our Compress & Hydrate + Press & Roll video

We want you to get the best results!

3) Cleansing Cream – ‘press & roll’ technique.

4) Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner – close eyes and mist onto the skin, 3 pumps should do.

5) Day Care – all are highly concentrated so should always be warmed between the palms of the hands and applied to skin still moist from Toner. This ensures even and economical application.

Clarifying Day Oil – to balance and regulate an oily/blemished skin
Melissa Day Cream – for sensitive combination (oily t-zone, dry/normal cheeks) skin
Rose Day Cream Light – for normal or sensitive skin, usually recommended for a younger skin, up to around 35.
Rose Day Cream – rich and highly protective for normal, dry, sensitive, mature skin
Quince Day Cream – cooling, soothing and protective for normal skin or sensitive skin
Tinted Day Cream – tinted moisturiser for normal, dry, sensitive or mature skin
Revitalising Day Cream – for aiding sebaceous activity and guiding skin to a balanced state in a normal, dry, mature/pallid skin
Regenerating Serum & Regenerating Day Cream – specific support for firming a maturing skin

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Every Day – Evening

1) ‘Compress and Hydrate’ skin to soften the pores in readiness for cleansing. Use 5 drops of Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence in the water
2) Soothing Cleansing Milk
3) Apply Renewing Night Conditioner or Sensitive Care Conditioner ampoule.

This is your weekly routine, so repeat until you reach your 28th evening. By which time your skin will be deeply cleansed, nourished, more even toned, soft, radiant and healthy!

Great skin care is about using the highest quality natural and organic products. Eat fresh, nutritious food, drink 6-8 glasses of water daily, 8 hours sleep and put measures in place if you’re stressed – a state of relaxation, happiness and laughter is good for your skin. A 30 minute daily walk in the fresh air is good for your body, mind and soul, in nature if you can.

Mixing Clarifying Clay Mask with water in readiness for application

For those that need it here’s step by step instructions on how to do a Clarifying Steam BathClarifying Clay Mask and Cream Mask for Day 1 which will be repeated once a week during the programme, alternatively there’s full instructions in your product box:

1. Compress and hydrate your skin, cleanse with Soothing Cleansing Milk, remove with the warm, moist Dr. Hauschka Compress Cloth.
2. Place 1 heaped teaspoon of Clarifying Clay Mask in a small container in readiness.
3. Dilute two teaspoons of Clarifying Steam Bath with ½ litre (500ml) of steaming water in a large bowl. Lean over the bowl, covering the head with towel, and steam for 5-10 minutes. Follow with Clarifying Clay Mask application.

Please note: If you don’t wish to steam, then you may do this step with Clarifying Steam Bath and ‘Compress and Hydrate’ instead.

4. While your skin is still warm and moist mix 2 to 2 1/2 teaspoons of water (I use the Clarifying Steam Bath water) to the Clarifying Clay Mask in the small container. The consistency you want is spreadable, not too thin because it will drip off your face and not a paste.

5. Apply mask to your face and neck excluding eye contour area ideally with a mask brush. Apply from the centre of the face outwards. We always work in the direction of lymph flow. Allow to dry, it’s no longer active once dry.

Clarifying Clay Mask Tip: Watch where the clay mask dries first. That’s a good indication that particular area of your face is dehydrated. Are you missing that area with your Day Care? Do you need a richer Day Care product?

6. To remove Clarifying Clay Mask the Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Sponge makes the job quick and easy, but a non white face flannel will do, moistened with the now lukewarm facial steam water. Remove by moistening the mask first, then wiping.

7. Now apply your Cream Mask (Revitalising, Hydrating, Firming or Soothing) including the eye contour area, as an eye mask.

8. Leave on for at least 30 minutes to absorb. I leave mine on for most of the evening. Remove Cream Mask with a warm moist Compress Cloth before bedtime.

9. Apply the contents of a Renewing Night Conditioner Ampoule.

Please note: If you are new to Renewing Night Conditioner ampoules, flick the top to ensure all liquid is in the bottom of the ampoule, then using a towel break off the glass top. Pour 1/2 the contents into the palm of one hand, spread between the palms of the hands and quickly press into the skin and repeat with the balance of the liquid. Apply nothing further to your skin. It’s bedtime.

Note: We do not recommend any heat for a rosacea skin condition – use tepid water for a Compress & Hydrate instead.

Your skin will reward you for the extra effort, it will look radiant, refined and even toned, nourished and pampered. x

NUDE LOOK
Discreetly flattering

This is a low key make-up that achieves its effect by kilful understatement with light opacity and smooth transitions. For the nude look, less is more.

How to achieve the look

  1. Apply shade 01 over the entire eyelid
  2. Emphasise three areas with shade 02: the lid crease, the upper lash line and the lower lash line
  3. The lashes remain natural and only a light layer of Mascara is applied

This easy daytime make-up suits every woman and any occasion, work or in the weekend. Everyday elegance in just a few simple steps.

How to achieve the look

  1. Shade 01 on the whole eyelid.
  2. A little shade 02 on the crease and the upper and lower lash lines.
  3. Highlight the outer corner of the eye above and below with the darker shade 04.
  4. Apply a little shade 03 and spread it gently towards the inner corner of the eye.

SMOKY EYES
Sensual and expressive

Effectively applied smoky eyes give your look the right level of sensuality, while also creating an air of confidence.

How to achieve the look

  1. Prime the eyelid with shade 01.
  2. Apply shade 02 in the crease.
  3. Now draw upper and lower lid lines using the Kajal Eyeliner Pencil 05 Black, taking the upper lid line toward the brow.
  4. Then use the the Eye Definer Brush to apply shade 04 directly on top and also blend this outward from the lower lash line towards the corner of the eye.
  5. Then create a connection from the outer corner of the eye up to the eyebrows with shade 03.
  6. Apply several coats of Volume Mascara to the eyelashes.
  7. Finally, create glamorous accents with shade 01 directly below the eyebrows.

RED CARPET LOOK
Skilfully attract attention

There is always a special occasion, so here’s the make-up for your next big event! Highlight your eyes expressively and treat your lips to pure colour.

How to achieve the look

  1. Prime your eyelid with shade 01 and then use shade 02 to emphasise the crease and the lower and upper lash lines.
  2. Apply plenty of Kajal Eyeliner Pencil 05 Black, running past the corner of the eye out towards the brow. Use a small dot to mark the end of the lid line in advance. This makes a precise curve possible.
  3. Mist a little Facial Toner onto your Eye Definer Brush, now apply a little shade 04 to set the eyeliner pencil.
  4. In this look, a strong coating of Volume Mascara is applied to the upper lashes, while the lower lashes are only slightly highlighted.

TIPS

  1. If you are wearing dark eye make-up, reduce the amount of colour on your cheeks and lips. Use just a little Bronzing Powder and a delicate Lip Gloss.
  2. To lift the eye shape and make the eyes appear more open, begin applying shade 03 in the middle of your lower eyelid. From there, apply the shade in one stroke to the outer corner of the eye and along the lash line back to the middle.
  3. Simply use the darkest colour 04 anthracite to draw a line along the line of the eyelashes to give the impression of thicker eyelashes.
  4. Take a deep breath before applying the eyeliner so that you can hold your breath for a moment to draw a precise line.
  5. Highest quality brushes will always give you a professional and blended look. Check out our limited edition Eye Definer Brush and Eyeshadow Blender Brush.

YOUR EYEBROWS complete your look

Groomed eyebrows form the framework for the make-up that you have just created. They are important for a harmonious overall appearance. So take a moment to look in the mirror and see how your whole face looks more open.

To find the right shade use your hair colour as a guide. Generally your eyebrows should not be lighter than your hair colour, but rather a touch darker. Or if you prefer to go for a dramatic look you can use 2 shades darker shade to make eyebrows more thicker and prominent.

Screen Shot 2015-08-18 at 9.12.32 am

How to find the right shape

  1. Hold a pen or pencil perpendicular to your nose, the starting point for both brows is on this straight line
  2. Use the pen to form a line from the tip of the nose through the iris. This point marks the highest point of your brow arch.
  3. Align the pen from the nostrils to the corner of the eye, this is the line where the brow should end.

Macadamia

Macadamia-TopImage

Our ingredients

Each and every one of the ingredients in our products contributes to their overall effect. Careful thought goes into the selection and sourcing of the raw materials as well as the way in which the individual ingredients are combined to form complete Dr. Hauschka products. We also adhere to the highest quality standards.

This blog tells you more about the individual ingredient, Macadamia, where it comes from, why we use it and what functions it performs in our products.

Dr. Hauschka Foundation

The excellent skin compatibility of the intensively nurturing Foundation is based on a combination of quality natural substances. The rapidly absorbed macadamia nut oil gives the skin a protective finish. It smoothes the skin making it easier for the pigments to be applied evenly. By contrast, coconut oil is absorbed slowly into the skin and leaves a lovely silky feel. Pomegranate provides moisture and vitality and encourages skin regeneration. Shea butter helps the skin retain moisture and is protective. The result is a nurtured, even and radiant complexion.

Macadamia-Profile-large

Raw material profile

It is considered the queen of nuts. In its subtropical home in Australia, the evergreen, sclerophyllous macadamia trees (Macadamia ternifolia) can reach heights of up to around 15 metres. Macadamia belongs to the original silver tree family (Proteaceae), the ancestors of which developed in the ancient continent of Gondwana (consisting of South America, Africa, Antarctica, Australia, Arabia, Madagascar, New Guinea and India) in the Precambrian Age. Today, the tree is grown in Australia and New Zealand, on Hawaii, in Israel and in various countries in Africa and South America.

The appearance of the trees is strongly influenced by genetic variants and growing methods. For example, for months, long panicles of white or pinky-purplish flowers, which can vary massively in numbers, grow on the trees. There can be up to 500 blossoms on each panicle. They bloom from top to bottom. In Australia, these blossoms are pollinated not only by insects; birds and marsupials are among the more extraordinary pollinators of the macadamia tree. As a rule, after around six months only three to five percent of them mature into macadamia nuts, which, incidentally, are not actually nuts. They are what are known as stone fruit, as are walnuts, for example. Stone fruit are surrounded by an unwooded fruit flesh, while in nuts, the fruit flesh is completely wooded to form the shell. The extremely hard shell of the macadamia nut is enclosed by a green fruit flesh.

Macadamia nuts are known and sought-after as a delicious, healthy snack. Macadamia nut oil contains simple unsaturated fatty acids, which can reduce blood cholesterol levels when consumed. These include plenty of palmitoleic acid, a fatty acid which is normally found in animal fatty tissue and which has a strong antioxidative effect. B-group vitamins and vitamin E add to the value of macadamia nut oil for nutrition and also for skin care.Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 9.38.24 AM

Macadamia-Origin-large

Origin, cultivation and processing

The fair-trade macadamia nuts for Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products come from the ‘macadamiafans’ certified organic small farmer project in Kenya. The growth conditions for the macadamia tree are perfect at the high altitudes around Mount Kenya National Park, where the trees are cultivated by small farmers. Despite the optimum conditions, it still takes around 15 years before the trees can be fully harvested, but they then last for decades. The nuts primarily ripen in the months from March to June. Straight after the harvest, the farmers remove the green outer shell. The nuts prepared in this way are then transported to decentralised manufacturing facilities for further processing. These largely employ the farmers’ family members. After a gentle drying process, the factory employees use specially developed manual nutcrackers to delicately remove the valuable cores from the protective shell, carefully sort them and then package them in a vacuum to prevent oxidation. It is a complicated process involving a lot of manual work, several stages of drying and short storage times, but it is worth it as a high percentage of the macadamia nuts remain undamaged.

With all this work, it is no wonder that macadamia nuts are the most expensive nuts in the world. Where it was previously often just the middle men making a profit, the macadamiafans project founded in 2009 gives the farmers and their families direct access to the export market. The project has its own traceability system where all steps are recorded digitally, from training and certification of the farmers, through purchasing, payment and processing to the finished product. Extensive training and a conversion to certified organic farming have given the farmers the opportunity to significantly increase their income. All of the profits from macadamiafans currently go into expanding the activities in Kenya so that more farmers can be offered a fair return on their products.

WALA buys the shelled nuts from macadamiafans and gets them pressed into oil in Germany. This requires real finesse from the people working at the oil mill. Macadamia nuts need the right amount of gentle warmth to separate the oil and oil cakes from one another. The valuable oil cakes go to organic bakeries in the area.

Macadamia-Slider-04

macadamiafans cooperates with the WELT:KLASSE foundation. As part of supervised school projects, German schoolchildren sell the Kenyan macadamia nuts in Germany and can visit the farmers in Kenya.

Macadamia-Slider-02

The flowers, ripening and ripe fruit can be found on the macadamia tree at the same time, which is a typical feature of tropical trees.

Macadamia-Slider-03

The Aborigines value wild macadamia nuts as a source of protein and fat. One legend suggests that a cockatoo gave the nuts to the tribal boy Baphal when he was stuck in the mountain with an injured foot, thus saving his life. Since then, the nuts have been called Baphal nuts in the Aborigine language.

Macadamia-Slider-01

Originally, macadamia nuts only grew in Australia. It is the only edible Australian plant which is farmed commercially.

Do you really need an eye cream?

Homepage_SLIDESHOW_BeConfidentBeJoyous

Do you really need a specialised eye product?

  • The skin around the eyes is thinner and shows signs of ageing more quickly than other areas of the face
  • It’s also more delicate and vulnerable due to thin skin
  • More prone to allergic reactions
  • Subject to much movement e.g. squinting
  • Under the eyes may be prone to puffiness
  • The eye area doesn’t contain oil glands to keep the skin moist like the rest of your facial skin

So yes, a day time specialised eye product is highly recommended, with ingredients to protect against the environment, and to nourish, nurture, soothe and refresh.
