More and more men are coming to value great skin care. However, they want a skin care regime that’s easy and doesn’t take a lot of time – one that achieves its goal in just a few steps. The co-ordinated skin care plan by Dr. Hauschka offers men a 3 Step Day Care and 3 Step Night Care regime. With a range of selected Dr. Hauschka products which complement each other perfectly, men don’t have to wait long for results that can be seen and felt.
Naturally simple and effective
All Dr. Hauschka face care products complement each other, forming a harmonised 3 Step Day Care regime.
Facial cleansing removes dirt and dead skin cells without drying the skin. It serves as the cornerstone of our holistic skin care concept.
Toning activates the skin’s innate processes, leaving the complexion clear and radiant.
The right day cream protects the skin. As the third step after cleansing and moisturising, it completes our skin care regime.
3 Step Day Care
Invigorates and cleanses; noticeable moisturising effects
Toning After Shave
Invigorating aftershave – refreshing and soothing, feels great on freshly shaved skin. Echinacea has anti-bacterial properties and Daisy has anti-inflammatory properties. Just close eyes and mist onto skin.
Daily Hydrating Eye Cream
Keeps delicate skin around the eyes hydrated, helping to prevent premature wrinkles.
Quince Day Cream
For Normal Skin. Guys love the fresh Quince fragrance. Quince Wax protects the skin and Quince Seed extract prevents moisture loss. Cooling and soothing.
Melissa Day Cream
Formulated for a Sensitive Combination (oily t-zone, dry/normal cheeks) Skin with a matte finish. Smoothes, harmonises and reduces shine.
Revitalising Day Cream
Our lightest texture day cream, yet most activating for a Dry Skin. Refreshing and moisturising.
For an Oily/Blemished skin then choose Clarifying Day Oil instead of a cream moisturiser to regulate oil production. Apply Coverstick to pimples to conceal and treat with just the right amount of tea tree and manuka oils for their anti-bacterial properties and tapioca starch to absorb.
Tip: Guys also like our Translucent Bronzing Tint mixed with their moisturiser to help even skin tone and give skin a healthy sun-kissed look. This isn’t make-up guys, just a concentrated tint.
3 Step Evening Care:
Cleansing Milk or Cleansing Cream + Clarifying Toner + Night Serum
Day Care Options:
1) If your skin is ‘parched’ dry we would recommend Moisturising Mask used as a day cream until condition improves.
2) Protective Blend: Moisturising Day Cream to activate the skin’s sebaceous activity and Rose Day Cream over the top to nourish and protect.
3) Antioxidant Blend: see information below. Rose Day Cream blended with a couple of drops of Normalising Day Oil.
3) Rose Day Cream 4) Regenerating Serum and Regenerating Day Cream is our usual recommendation for maturing skin support, however as Regenerating Neck & Décolleté Day Cream is more rich we would recommend to use on your face for a drier skin that still requires firming and toning.
Regenerating Serum if required for a maturing skin
Did you know? That night cream use exacerbates a dry skin condition. Use our gentle cleansing products and give your skin 28-30 days (skin cell cycle) on an exclusively Dr. Hauschka regime and see the difference in the health and vitality of your skin.
Solution to dryness and dehydration?
Moisturising Mask is our ultimate skin fix, twice a week, cleanse early in the evening and apply the mask, around your eye contour too, and leave on to absorb all evening, removing with a moist, tepid cloth before bed. If your skin is extremely dry you may also use Moisturising Mask as your ‘day cream’ for a month or until condition improves. This blend of botanicals soothes, protects and revitalises while sealing in moisture, leaving skin feeling smooth and supple.
– Quince seed extract replenishes and helps dry skin to retain moisture.
– Nourishing almond, avocado, olive and jojoba oils hydrate the outer layer of skin
– Rose wax and organic shea butter soothe and protect.
The skin healers and antioxidants are Vitamins A, C and E, and the optimum choice when topically applying these vitamins is when they come in the form of the whole plant extract.
Rosehip for Vitamin C and Wheatgerm for Vitamin E, both found in Rose Day Cream formulation. Mix with a drop of two of Normalising Day Oil prior to application to skin still moist from Toner. That glorious orange colour comes from Wild Carrot Extract, a rich source of pro Vitamin A. There you have it, a potent antioxidant blend!
Intensive Skin Care with Mask Blends:
Jose, our Esthetician Trainer, has a couple of tricks up her sleeve to keep skin looking fabulous. This first blend is so uplifting that when our UK Esthetician tried it she only did it on one half of her face. She promptly had to do the other half because of the difference it had made.
Firming & Moisturising Mask Blend
• Cleanse early in the evening
• Apply a generous amount of Regenerating Serum – also to eye contour area as an eye mask
• Then apply Moisturising Mask over the top – also to eye contour as an eye mask
• Leave to absorb all evening, removing just before bedtime
The other blend is for those of you that have red, irritated, flaky skin as well as dryness. You may still wish to use Regenerating Serum as well if you usually do.
Soothing & Moisturising Mask Blend
• Cleanse early in the evening
• Apply a generous amount of a mixture of Soothing Mask and Moisturising Mask – including eye contour area
• Leave to absorb all evening, removing just before bedtime
A dry skin needs help to achieve balance and we highly recommend a one month treatment with a nightly Rhythmic Night Conditioner ampoule instead of Toner.
Puberty brings about such increases in hormonal activity that most pre-teens and teens are likely to experience acne or pimples. The liver has to metabolise the increased hormonal activity and one of the skin’s many functions is as an organ of elimination, pimples are the result. Pores open to cope with the additional oil production. Even if this situation calms somewhat over time it’s likely that monthly pimples will go on through 20’s and 30’s. Hormonal acne often also features in pregnancy, post natal and menopause and also there’s cosmetic acne caused by petrochemical based occlusive make-up products. Cosmetic brushes and sponges hygiene is important too.

Our morning deep cleansing product 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.
Use: Place a large pea size of product in the palm of one hand, moisten with a little water to make and emulsion, not a paste, and with the palms of both hands ‘press and roll’ into the skin, see our above video. No scrubbing, way too harsh for skin that has to last you a life time.
A hydrating treatment product with active botanicals, contains antibacterial Echinacea and anti-inflammatory Daisy. Perfect ‘after shave’ preparation for guys too!
Use: Just close eyes and mist directly onto skin. This is not a conventional toner that you use with cotton pads.
Normalising Day Oil
With this product we are incorporating homeopathic guidelines, ‘like treats like’ – an oil for an oily skin! Seriously, it calms and regulates oil production, whereas harsh stripping type products just make for more oil production as the skin compensates. Don’t look for that ‘squeaky clean feel’, that means the pH of the skin has been disrupted. NDO regulates oil production and heals with Wild Carrot extract, a rich source of pro- Vitamin A. Plethora of anti-oxidants in a bottle.
Formulation: Apricot Kernel, Almond and Wheat germ oils balance the skin’s natural oil content, while Anthyllis and Carrot extracts calm the skin. Neem, St. John’s wort and Calendula extracts combine to visibly minimise redness and help maintain a healthy, radiant complexion.
Use: Only 3 drops are required on the palm of the hand, warm between the palms of the hands then press into skin still moist with Toner. One bottle will last you ages.
Melissa Day Cream
Melissa Day Cream balances and effectively cares for combination skin. Oily areas are calmed, dry patches are hydrated, the appearance of redness is reduced, and shine is controlled for a balanced, radiant complexion. The medicinal herb Melissa (Lemon Balm) has a fresh and ‘lemony’ aroma that’s wonderfully uplifting.
Formulation: Extracts of Melissa, Daisy, Anthyllis, Witch Hazel and Carrot soothe, working to balance the skin’s natural oil and water content. Tapioca starch provides an even, matte appearance.
Use: Warm around a large pea size of product between the palms of the hands and apply to skin still moist from Toner from the centre of the face, in an outwards direction. We always work in the direction of lymph flow.
Extra Oily T-Zone Tip: Apply Normalising Day Oil to the T-zone area, then follow with Melissa Day Cream
Pure Care Cover Stick
Our incredible pimple treatment product that conceals as well and works in a speedy manner. Contains just the right amount of Tea Tree and Manuka for their anti-bacterial properties, Tapioca Starch to absorb the ‘yucky stuff’, for want of a better word. The quicker a pimple is healed the less likelihood of lifelong scarring.
✓ Covers spots and blemishes effectively.
✓ Antibacterial formula clarifies and harmonises the skin.
✓ Natural waxes help to prevent dryness.
✓ Anthyllis and Calendula assist the skin’s healing processes.
✓ Available in 3 shades

Cleansing Milk Clarifying Toner
Note: We don’t use any oil or cream based products on our skin during the night, this is the time that your skin will do most of it’s elimination work, and this natural process needs to function unimpeded.
Extra Care for Acne, Blemishes or a Combination Skin These extras do make all the difference!
Once a week complete a Facial Steam Bath and Cleansing Clay Mask, to draw impurities, followed by a Rejuvenating Mask which helps to refine pores and is healing to any new scarring, soothing, calming and cooling – love this product!
On another night of the week cleanse early in the evening and apply Rejuvenating Mask and leave to absorb as long as possible, removing with a warm, moist compress cloth prior to bedtime.
Lemon juice and warm water first thing, before breakfast, every morning helps to keep skin clear.
We promote Hydrate and Compress the skin for softening the pores and enabling a deeper cleanse, however please wash your Compress daily. Check out our ‘Morning Ritual Video’ above. Ideally change your pillow slip daily too.
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.
Drink plenty of water, at least 6-8 glasses daily and eat your 5 servings a day of the freshest fruit and veg, steer clear of fizzy drinks, fatty foods and if you know chocolate and sugary items give you pimples keep away from them.
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”.
Translucent Make-up and set with Translucent Powder in Compact or Loose
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. Estheticians in Australia
It has now been a month since I was introduced to Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, and the results have been astounding! After receiving a personalised assessment of my needs, the Dr. Hauschka Team recommended a daily ritual programme which was customised specifically for me, and worked to target the areas that I was most concerned about. I love that customisation and personalisation underpins the whole process! It’s awesome to know that the products recommended are the best products for my skin condition; I know that I will never again be caught in a situation where I have purchased products which are unsuitable for my skin. I have tried many skin care products before, but I have found none to be as effective as Dr. Hauschka in reducing pore size and blemishes, and in making my skin look and feel a million dollars. And it’s not just me noticing! I now often receive compliments from family, friends, and acquaintances about the obvious changes they can see in my skin. I have not changed my diet or routine, but for the daily use of beautiful Dr Hauschka skin care.
What’s even more exciting is that whilst the changes are evident on the outside, people often don’t realise that I also use Dr. Hauschka body care products for Fibromyalgia pain. Since using Dr. Hauschka Birch Arnica Body Oil and Rosemary Arm and Leg Toner, I have felt a noticeable difference in the degree of pain that I am experiencing. Again this can only be put down to the fabulous organic ingredients which are used in Dr. Hauschka products. After being so dependent on medicinal products to try to alleviate and reduce pain, it is such a welcome change to have found natural products which work so well! I could not rave any higher about the Dr. Hauschka brand, and the Team who are always so contactable and personable. I have truly been converted, and will now only use Dr. Hauschka skin and body care! Thank you for making such remarkable products!
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. Conventional toners are used on cotton wool (which absorbs a huge amount of product by the way) to remove residual cleansing product.
Use: Close your eyes and mist directly onto skin after cleansing.
Toning should stimulate and support the life process of the skin, making it strong and vibrant. When this is the case, you want your toner to be left on the skin.
Active medicinal plant extracts in the toner can then get to work.
Our Day Dare products, (Moisturisers and Normalising Day Oil), are all highly concentrated and are specifically designed to be applied to skin still moist from toner, this means you use your Day Care in an even and economical way
Toner also helps to facilitate absorption of your Day Care
Hydrate your skin
Stimulate the skin’s own moisturising processes
Improve the elasticity of the pore walls
Regulate the oil production in the skin
Help to support a healthy, balanced skin
Our Toners are not drying to the skin
At night, our Toner’s active ingredients support the night-time functions of elimination and renewal. The skin’s own moisturising processes are stimulated and strong and elastic pores mean the efficient expulsion of excretions and wastes.
There are two Dr. Hauschka Toners:
– Facial Toner for normal or dry skin conditions, all skin conditions may use though
– Clarifying Toner for oily and sensitive, combination skin conditions.
Clarifying Toner contains Echinacea for its anti-bacterial properties and Daisy for its anti-inflammatory benefits, soothing and calming. This preparation is also ideal as a soothing after-shave for men. Facial Toner contains Witch Hazel for its astringent properties and one of our key ingredients, balancing Anthyllis.
Hydrate your skin with our Toner at any time. We keep a bottle in our desk to hydrate our skin during the day, especially in the warmer months and in dehydrating air conditioning.
‘Set’ your make-up by misting Toner, gives a more dewy look too.

For me, personally, wearing Blackthorn Body Oil helps give me more focus when productivity is required and I also find it imparts a sense of strength and vitality. It also happens to be the Body Oil that I receive “love your perfume” compliments at my morning coffee stop!
Tip: A winning, strengthening and toning partnership is Blackthorn Body Oil mixed with Lemon Lemongrass Body Moisturiser and applied to skin still slightly moist from the shower, for even and economical application.
Blackthorn Body Oil description:
Supple, toned skin depends upon skin elasticity. Blackthorn Body Oil offers strengthening, warming skin care for all the family. It has even proved successful during pregnancy when it is particularly important to keep skin supple to prevent pregnancy-induced stretch marks.
Blackthorn blossom and birch leaf extracts enhance skin elasticity while sun-drenched St. John’s wort and jojoba oil support the skin’s natural processes of renewal and fortification.
Formulation: Blackthorn blossoms, birch leaves and St. John’s wort are combined with sunflower oil, then carefully blended using unique rhythmic processing methods. During this phase, the mixtures are heated to 37 °C – human body temperature. They are carefully mixed in the mornings and evenings to allow the properties of the nurturing plants to be transferred to the oil.
Blackthorn was originally a native of central Europe. Thanks to its hardiness it has become widespread and is now found from southern Sweden to the Urals, and in the moderate zones of Southwest Asia, North Africa and North America.
Flavonoid glycosides, coumarin derivatives, tannins and bitter substances, acids, vitamin C, traces of amygdalin (cyanogenic glycoside)
The dense, spreading, much-branched thorny shrub, which can reach a height of up to 3 m (9 feet), flowers from March to April in the European spring. The small white scented flowers appear before the leaves. They are usually solitary, on short stems, but cover the entire length of the branches so densely that the whole shrub is shrouded in white. In May, after the flowers, the oval, tooth-edged leaves appear, and in late summer the bluish-black plum-like fruits which have a whitish bloom and astringent green flesh. They are 1 cm in diameter, contain a stone and are only edible after the frost. The thorns, incidentally, are transformed lateral branchlets.
Blackthorn likes sunny hills and dry, sparse deciduous woods with chalky, deep soil. Together with other members of the rose family it often forms impenetrable thorny thickets. The light-loving blackthorn is extremely resistant to pests and regenerates quickly after cutting. It can colonise shallow soil quickly and spreads through seed dispersal by mammals and birds and by production of root suckers. Even on wind-exposed sites it defies the natural forces. So it is not surprising that it was used as pioneer wood for stabilising embankments and dry slopes and for landscaping slag heaps and wasteland, as well as for wind and snow screens. With its high value as honey plant, too, blackthorn emerges as something of an ideal shrub.
Today the fruits of the blackthorn are still used to brew warming drinks for harsh winter evenings: sloe wine and sloe gin make you feel cozy indoors while winter rages outside. Syrups, jellies and jams are also a vitamin-rich delicacy.
Early in the spring, even before the young shoots and leaves begin to sprout, the blackthorn envelops itself in a radiant white mass of blossoms. But it is not until late in the year, when the first frosts herald the coming of winter, that the fruits ripen and become sweet. Thus, the blackthorn only hesitantly divulges its vital powers, keeps them in a certain inwardness. The flowers which have gone through the winter help the human organism to overcome the winter and to adapt its metabolism to the spring.
The vitality-bearing fruits provide strength in states of exhaustion. Elixirs of the fruit were made for use during convalescence.
Dr.Hauschka Blackthorn Body Oil strengthens and warms the skin. With its pleasant fragrance, the harmonious composition of blackthorn blossom, birch leaves and St. John’swort firms and purifies the tissues. The skin-strengthening properties give the skin a fresh, moisturised appearance.
Gently prepared oil extracts from blackthorn blossom unfold their conditioning properties in Dr.Hauschka Hand Cream, Lemon Lemongrass Body Moisturiser and Quince Body Moisturiser, too. Fully ripe blackthorn fruits harvested in the wild are carefully processed to essences which round off the composition of Lemon Lemongrass Body Moisturiser, Quince Body Moisturiser and Deodorant Fresh.
