Key Ingredients

Pomegranate Fruit Extract
Pomegranate fruit helps the skin to regenerate as well as having antioxidant properties. They also store a huge amount of moisture and vitality. The Pomegranate extract used in Dr. Hauschka Foundation is obtained by processing the entire fruit, including its skin.

Pomegranates not only taste good, they have a range of health benefits. Anti-fungal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties have been ascribed to them. They’re also resistant to drought and can store much moisture and vitality in their fruit.

An age-defying ingredient

  • We process the whole Pomegranate fruit, including the Peel for our products, obtaining a preparation that promotes regeneration of the skin.
  • Pomegranate Peel is an important ingredient because its extract inhibits an enzyme that is responsible for the breakdown of collagen in ageing skin.
  • At the same time, the extract activates an enzyme that’s involved in the production of collagen.
  • Pomegranate Seed Oil contained in the whole-fruit extract stimulates cell division in the keratinocytes, cells which produce the important skin-strengthening protein keratin.

Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is slow in penetrating the skin’s layers, it leaves the skin feeling soft and silky smooth all day. The coconut oil in Dr. Hauschka Foundation comes from a small farming project in Sri Lanka, which is certified by both Naturland and Fair For Life. This gives the formulation a stable, moisturising base.

Macadamia Nut Oil
Macadamia nuts take a very long time to ripen and are only ready when they fall from the tree of their own accord. Macadamia nut oil is absorbed easily by the skin and is unique among oils owing to the high amount of antioxidant palmitoleic acid that it contains.

The composition also includes nourishing Jojoba and Apricot Kernel Oil, Anthyllis which is a key ingredient to bring all skin conditions to a state of balance, protective Shea Butter and Candelilla Wax, provitamin A rich Carrot Root Extract and Silica to strengthen skin.

Tips from Karim Sattar, Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist

  • To find the right shade of Dr. Hauschka Foundation for you, apply three different shades on your cheekbones and choose the colour which blends best with your face and neck.
  • You should apply Foundation in small amounts starting with the forehead and then moving on to the nose, chin and cheeks – always work downwards to avoid emphasising pores and fine hairs.
  • Blend the transition between the neck, ears and hairline so that no edges are visible.
  • Because your skin will begin absorbing Foundation immediately, we recommend applying product from the top of the lid, rather than the back of your hand.
  • You can apply a second coat of Foundation for more coverage.
  • A moist sponge may be used for a lighter coverage, alternatively to achieve a more translucent make-up, mix Foundation with your Dr. Hauschka Moisturiser.
  • Applying and patting in the Foundation with a foundation brush helps to conceal redness and imperfections more effectively.

A nurturing base for an even complexion

For the Foundation to go on evenly, your skin should first be cleansed and moisturised. Otherwise, large amounts of Foundation will become concentrated on dry spots, creating an uneven result. Perhaps your lips, neck and the area under your eyes could use a little cream? This creates the optimum base for and even and long-lasting make-up.

Application and fixing

For seamless application, apply a little Foundation from your forehead down to your nose, as well as to your chin and cheeks. Always work downwards so as not to emphasise pores or tiny hairs. Next, spread the Foundation outwards to the sides of your face, blending in the areas of transition with your neck, ears and hair line.

Concealer before or after?

After! For greater coverage in specific areas or to conceal shadows on the inner corner of the eyes, add a little Concealer. But don’t cover up too much – leave the moles or freckles that are part of your beauty.

Why use Powder?

Powder helps to fix the liquid Foundation and enhances the staying power of your make-up. Use a Powder Brush to work a little loose power into your skin using downwards strokes. To create a more matte effect, you can press the powder onto your skin using a powder puff, gently rolling it back and forth. Powder Compact is a practical choice if you like to refresh your make-up while out and about.

Fingers, sponge or brush?

At hand temperature, Foundation spreads easily and harmoniously blends with your complexion. Please moisturise your hands well before use. This allows you to apply the Foundation evenly.

Easily, with a sponge

Application with a slightly damp sponge for speed of application.

Carefully, with a brush

When using a Foundation Brush, you can apply the Foundation to specific areas, increasing its ability to conceal blemishes.

Air brushed finish

Foundation Brush is great for giving an ‘air brushed’ finish, and for blending colour at jawline.

For a little extra glow

For a hint of summer sun-kissed freshness, mix a small amount of Translucent Bronzing Tint with your Foundation.

Mix shades

Different tones open up interesting opportunities: the shades can be combined in any way you like to create your very own, personal Foundation or adapt your usual shade to the time of year. A darker shade helps to emphasise your cheek area.

For a bit of quick refreshment

If you applied your Foundation a few hours ago, you can give your face a little extra hydration later in the day, Mist a small amount of Facial Toner onto your face.

Too much Powder or Foundation?

Spray a little Toner onto a Powder Brush and gently brush across your face.

For a long-lasting result, high colour correcting result

For longer-lasting results and a flawless complexion, apply a little Colour Correcting Powder to your face first, to colour correct and as a matte base for Foundation. Apply a little over the Foundation as well, to set your make-up.

A Brief History Of Foundation

Screen Shot 2015-08-19 at 1.09.09 pm

It’s creamy and yet light as a feather. It creates a smooth complexion, but discreetly stays in the background: your foundation. A miraculous little product with a long history.

What’s considered beautiful?

Ochre, white lead, whiting (powdered and washed white chalk) – the ingredients of foundation changed depending on the idea of beauty at the time. Cleopatra used a primer that gave her skin a strong, ochre-golden colour that also protected it against the sand and sun. In the middle ages, a pale complexion became fashionable and dominated the scene for the next few centuries. People carefully avoided the sun and used a foundation made of toxic white lead.

The beauties of the screen

To be as beautiful as Greta Garbo – that was the dream of many women at the beginning of the 20th century. Because theatre make-up looked like a mask on the big screen, in 1914 Max Factor developed a foundation specifically for films. It gave the actors and actresses a natural appearance and took on the name ‘make-up’. Today ‘make-up’ often refers to the entire look, but foundation remains the expert base.

More than beautiful

Beauty wasn’t enough for Dr. Hauschka and Elisabeth Sigmund, in the 1960s, they developed a nourishing skin care range made with valuable plant oils and extracts from medicinal plants. In doing so, they became pioneers of a movement, which only later became known as ‘natural skin care’. In 1999, Dr. Hauschka launched a range of make-up – with medicinal plants used in every one of the formulations.

Make-up Mistakes & How To Rectify Them

Screen Shot 2015-04-15 at 12.25.23 pm
Model is wearing Foundation 01, Concealer 01, Translucent Face Powder Compact, Bronzing Powder, Rouge Powder 02, Kajal Eyeliner 01, Eyeshadow Solo 03 and 04, Kajal Eyeliner Duo 01 White, Eyeliner Liquid Black, Volume Mascara Black, Lipliner 03, Lipstick Novum 10.

1) Using an incorrect foundation shade

When your face doesn’t match your neck.

Solutions: Have your colour matching professionally done in store, but always check in daylight not under store lights. Don’t use the back of your hand to check colour, use your jaw line. Alternatively follow Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist, Karim Sattar’s Top Application Tips & Tricks Video. I find a Foundation Blending Brush works well to ensure colour blends onto neck.

Tip: You’ll find Dr. Hauschka NEW Foundations much easier to colour match. If you need more warm tones in summer just add a little Translucent Bronzing Tint to your Foundation.

Translucent tip: You can also mix Foundation with your Dr. Hauschka Moisturiser for a translucent look or apply with a moist sponge.

2) Dark lipliner with lighter lipstick

Solution: Ensure your lipliner matches your lipstick. Karim Sattar, Dr. Hauschka International Make-up Artist, recommends applying lip liner all over the lips simply because lipstick comes off and liner stays put and outlined lips are not what you’re looking for.

3) Blush that looks like racing stripes or no blush at all

Solution: Smile and apply blush lightly to the ‘apples’ of your cheeks. Always use a big Powder/Blusher Brush which is better at distributing colour, shake off excess, then apply. Your aim is to get subtle colour in your cheeks, think of a child’s cheeks. We often see a flat make-up, with no blusher or bronzer. It’s important for a youthful make-up to add the colour back in after applying Foundation and Powder.

Model’s lip colour is Lipliner 01 and Lipstick 04

4) Applying too much powder

Powder is important to set your Foundation for a longer lasting make-up, however, it looks caked if too much is used.

Solution: Use a large Powder Brush, tap off excess, then apply downwards to smooth down fine hairs. Finish with a spritz of Dr. Hauschka Toner which takes away a powdery look and also helps to set your make-up.

5) Applying Make-up too soon after Moisturiser

Or applying make-up to skin that hasn’t been cleansed, toned and moisturised.

Solution: Wait while your day care product absorbs into the skin. I do my morning regime of Cleansing Cream, Toner and Moisturiser then have breakfast and get dressed so my skin care has plenty of time to absorb. The aim is to apply your make-up evenly on clean, nourished and protected skin.

Dr. Hauschka decorate Cosmetic; Dr. Hauschska Dekorative Kosmetik
Model is wearing Kajal Eyeliner Duo 01 Anthracite, Eyeshadow Solo 07 and 09, Rouge Powder 03, Volume Mascara Black.

6) Clumpy Eyelashes

Never pump your mascara which forces air into the tube and dries out the formula.

Solution: Dr. Hauschka Mascara and Volume Mascara are made with nourishing ingredients such as Candelilla Wax, precious Damask Rose Blossom Wax and Beeswax. Remember all mascaras, natural and organic or otherwise should be replaced every 3 months. Pop a reminder in your phone when you purchase a new mascara for 3 months time.

Tip: Karim Sattar our International Make-up Artist recommends using a softer colour than black on bottom lashes, because you don’t want to enhance anything downward for a youthful make-up. Try Pearl Anthracite or Aubergine Volume Mascara, or Brown Mascara.

7) Eyeliner lines

Keep it softer during the day, apply eyeliner pencil to the outer 1/3rd and blend inwards, then set with eye shadow and an angled brush. Anthracite is a soft black which is flattering for a day time make-up.

10 Radiant Skin Tips and 10 Make-up Tips for the Bride

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 3.52.46 pm

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.

Screen Shot 2014-10-26 at 12.22.17 pm

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!

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 2.17.40 pm

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.

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 4.19.40 pm

Recommendations:

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!”

12 Steps to a Radiant Skin

Screen Shot 2014-02-06 at 1.45.16 pm

For a balanced and healthy skin!

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 12.35.44 PM

1) Drink warm water and lemon juice every morning on waking to help keep your skin clear. Even better to add a little organic apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon of honey in as well!
Resolve to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water every day to keep your skin plump and hydrated.

Lemon Tip: When lemons are in season juice plenty and freeze small amounts in ice cubes. Pop an ice cube in a cup at night so it’s quick and easy for the morning.

Hydration Tip: A small amount of apple juice with your glasses of water assists hydration.

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 11.48.06 am

2) Compress and Hydrate your skin prior to cleansing for a much deeper cleanse. Skin will feel silky soft and you will be using cleansing products much more economically too.

Compress & Hydrate, Press & Roll Video

3) Remember to complete both morning and evening cleanse with a cool compress or a cool splash.

Why?
This simple technique contracts a tiny muscle beside the hair follicle, thus helping to wash away any remaining dirt or make-up and keeps your skin soft, without having to use harsh exfoliants which disrupt your 28-30 day skin cell cycle which just renders your skin more prone to sensitivities and sun damage. Those outer cells are important protectors and should only naturally slough off when they’re ready.

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 11.29.47 am

4) Once a week give your skin a Facial Steam Bath and Cleansing Clay Mask treatment for the deepest cleanse to keep your skin looking clear and healthy. I think a Sunday night works well for this treatment, helps to keep me in the habit too.

Tip: Use Cleansing Sponge to re-moisten Cleansing Clay Mask after it’s dried, it’s no longer active once dry, then the Mask will be removed easily and efficiently with Cleansing Sponge.

Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 10.02.38 AM

5) After Facial Steam Mask and Cleansing Clay Mask apply a Cream Mask, which absorbs into the skin particularly well at this time. Cream Mask application should be done a second time during each week.

Tip: For your second Cream Mask application during the week. Cleanse nice early in the evening, apply Cream Mask, remembering with this mask you also apply around eye contour as an ‘eye mask’ as well. Leave on as long as possible, removing with a warm, moist cloth before bed.

Cream Masks:
Rejuvenating Mask – benefits all skin conditions, refining pores and making a noticeable difference
Moisturising Mask – Dryness or dehydration, may also be used as a day cream also for ‘parched’ dry skin
Soothing Mask – Sensitive, red, irritated skin, also helpful to use a day cream for rosacea
Firming Mask – a warming mask with the power of rose in all it’s forms to firm and tone

Screen Shot 2014-02-06 at 1.39.27 pm

6)  Adhere to Daily Rituals…

Morning Ritual
Cleanse with Cleansing Cream
Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner
Regenerating Serum (if appropriate)
Day Care to balance, regulate, nourish and protect skin against the elements

Evening Ritual
Cleanse with Cleansing Milk
Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner
Regenerating Serum (if appropriate)

Screen Shot 2013-09-14 at 3.57.18 PM

7)  Never use heavy, occlusive face night creams that impede your skin’s night time functions nor use eye creams overnight as that usually just results in puffy eyes in the morning.

Read more about our no night cream stance in our Dr. Hauschka Skin Facts here…

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

8) Complete a 30 night treatment with Rhythmic Night Conditioner instead of Toner at least in the two most transitional seasons of autumn and spring. Ideally one treatment each season. A skin cell cycle is 28-30 days

Screen Shot 2013-09-14 at 6.39.48 PM

9) We recommend a Classic Facial Treatment with a Dr. Hauschka Trained Esthetician at the beginning of the year to check in with your skin condition/concerns and receive an updated product prescription to ensure you’re investing in the best products and regime for optimum results.

 Dr. Hauschka Trained Estheticians

Skin is dynamic, it changes with age, the seasons, lifestyle factors, hormonal influences such as puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, post natal and menopause. I even use different day care in the week from the weekend, because my environment is different.

Body Care set F-GB_Press

10) Treat yourself to natural and organic Body Products too that will nourish your skin and your senses, providing moisture and aromatic support.

The skin is your body’s largest organ, and it’s semi-permeable, so yes, only natural and organic body care as well as face care.

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 12.07.34 pm

11) At the beginning of the year do a Make-up Clean-up and during the year attend a Dr. Hauschka Make-up Event to learn if you have cool toned or warm toned skin, to ensure you’re buying colours that best suit you. Learn application techniques and try out a new look.

In store Events for Skin Care Consultation and/or Make-up run from February to November each year and they’re advertised in our e-Newsletter and on Facebook. 

Tip: Remember mascara should be thrown out after 3 months, natural or otherwise, for hygiene reasons. New one beginning of January, April, July & October.

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 11.58.42 am

12)  Clean your make-up brushes every second week. Hygiene with skin care is so important. And Dr. Hauschka make-up is colour as well as care for your skin.

Good quality brushes give you a professional, long-lasting make-up. Look after this investment and they will last years and years.

Tip: Always lay your brushes flat after cleaning to dry. If they are standing upwards they don’t hold their shape as well and moisture gets into the glue.

Doing things differently…

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…

1) Cleansing
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.

2) Toners

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!

Tips:
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.

Night time products:

a) Toner
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.
