How do you know if you have cool or warm toned skin?

Why is it important to know if you have warm or cool toned skin?

Because it makes it so much easier to choose fabric colours that look the most flattering on you, and choose shades of Lip Colour to enhance.

  • Cool toned skin (pink, red or blue undertones)
  • Warm toned skin (yellow, peachy, golden undertones)
  • Neutral toned skin (a mix of warm and cool undertones, however, most neutrals do tend to sway to either warm or cool)
The jewellery test

If gold jewellery is more flattering on you, then you have a warm toned skin.
If silver jewellery is more flattering on you, then you have a cool toned skin.

The vein test

If your veins appear greenish, then you have a warm toned skin.
If your veins appear blueish, then you have a cool toned skin.

The fabric test

If you look best in browns and off-white, then you’re warm toned.
If you look best in black and white, then you’re cool toned.

Dr. Hauschka NEW Make-up features six colour worlds that have been created for our Lip Shades: rose, pink, berry, red, apricot, and brown.

Within each colour world, we offer a light, medium and dark Lipstick, six Sheer Lipsticks and six Lip Glosses to align with our six lip colour worlds.

red Lipsticks 10 and 11
brown Lipsticks 13, 14, 15

Summer Skin Savers

HAUSCH_39L_61A7337.tif

Sun-Stressed Skin

  • Revitalising Mask is cooling and detoxing, due to bentonite clay, it calms redness and soothes irritation. Your ‘go-to’ mask for its rejuvenating properties and your skin will look more even-toned and refined. Love your skin with this mask twice a week!
  • A 30 day treatment of Sensitive Care Conditioner ampoules which contain rhythmitised extracts of gemstones pearl (the oyster’s irritation, like treats like homeopathic guidelines) and malachite, and plant extract artemesia, which combine to strengthen red, irritated, sensitive and couperose prone skin and supports your skin’s renewal cycles.
  • After Sun soothing, cooling and deeply moisturising body lotion to calm redness, nourish and rehydrate a sun-stressed skin. We love this body lotion and wouldn’t be without it!

Protect
From heat, dehydrating air conditioning, pollution and warm winds

Quince Day Cream is nourishing and protective, cooling and soothing, for a normal to dry skin. Quince wax protects your skin without being occlusive, just as it does such a remarkable job of protecting quince fruit. Quince seed extract helps your skin to retain moisture. Quince Day Cream is also recommended for ‘city-stressed’ skin.

Some of our customers who are Rose Day Cream lovers in the cooler months find Quince Day Cream more appropriate in the warmer months of the year.

Matte Finish

If you have a combination skin, you may find with summer heat your oily T-zone is really playing up, then choose Melissa Day Cream, it helps control shine, mediates between dry, normal and oily areas, and has a matte finish.

For those using Rose Day Cream in the cooler months you may find the matte finish and lighter texture of Rose Day Cream Light a better choice for you at the moment.

Hydrate & Refresh

Facial Toner is strengthening and invigorating to the skin. Unlike a conventional Toner, Dr. Hauschka Toners are hydrating, botanical active, treatment products, that aid absorption of the ingredients in your moisturiser while ensuring even and economical application of moisturiser.

However, Toner may also be used at any time during the day to hydrate and refresh your skin, even over make-up.

Toner TIPS

  • Keeping it cool – leave Toner in the fridge, even more refreshing in this heat.
  • We keep the limited edition 30ml size Facial Toner in our desk drawer at work.

Facial Toner gently stimulates your skin’s own regenerative powers and for a youthful, radiant complexion. Formulated with witch hazel and anthyllis (which guides all skin conditions to a balanced state), it activates the skin’s metabolism and leaves the skin feeling fresh. It also regulates and enhances the skin’s processes of moisturising and renewal.

Revitalise & Energise

Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Oil, Body Milk, Body Wash and Bath Essence for a zesty lust for life. With summer heat you need skin care that does more than moisturise, it needs to be energising and refreshing as well. Take a moment to breathe in the aromatic scent of summer.

Refreshing
When you’re struggling to get out of bed, apply to skin still moist after showering to add a spring in your step. Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Oil spreads evenly and economically, absorbs rapidly and nourishes and moisturises your skin.

All moisturisers are a water and oil emulsion, this way you’re making the oil/water emulsion directly on your skin.

Toned
Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Body Oil is also helps with cellulite. Regularly massage the toning Body Oil into the affected areas of skin to strengthen the connective tissue.

Clarity
Got a long day ahead of you? Remain focused and resilient. Apply the refreshing Body Oil to your arms and legs in the morning or at any other time. Lemon zest extracts refresh and centre you.

Body Oils are more aromatically intense than Body Milks or Body Creams.

Absorb Moisture
Luxurious Silk Body Powder is a ‘must-have’ at this time of year. Use a sprinkle in your shoes to keep them fresh and on your feet as well to absorb moisture, use anywhere you’re likely to suffer from chaffing, and it may also be used as a dry shampoo. Silk Body Powder is made from real silk powder, rice starch, silica and diatomaceous earth, it’s talc free. Gentian and oak extracts cool and refresh while sage extract supports healthy skin and scalp. The aroma of Body Silk alone keeps me coming back for more.

How to Master Contouring and Highlighting in Easy Steps

screen-shot-2016-11-15-at-11-35-24-am

You’ll need: Your existing Dr. Hauschka Foundation plus Dr. Hauschka Foundation 05 nutmeg, Concealer 01 pale sandRouge Powder and Translucent Powder in loose or compact to set.

About Dr. Hauschka Foundation

If you want less coverage, more like a tinted moisturiser, then mix Foundation with your Dr. Hauschka moisturiser. For mid coverage then use one ‘coat’ and you’ll fine ‘dries’.  If you want more coverage just apply a second ‘coat’ of Foundation after the first coat ‘dries’.

TIP: A foundation blending brush is a must for a professional foundation ‘air brushed’ application.

When contouring and highlighting think – darker areas recede and lighter areas highlight

Step 1: Start with your face cleansed, toned and moisturised.

Step 2: Apply your usual Foundation all over, remembering to include eye area.

Step 3: Apply Foundation 05 with fingertip as shown in the brown areas in the above pic, then with a slightly damp beauty blender press, in a press and roll movement, into the base foundation to blend.

To find the correct place for the cheeks, feel with your finger for the hollow under the cheekbone.

Step 4: Apply Concealer 01 as shown in the white areas in the above pic and then press and roll into the base foundation with the other side of the beauty blender.

Step 5: Apply Translucent Translucent Powder with a fluffy Powder Brush to set.

Step 6: Smile and apply Rouge Powder with a Rouge Brush to the ‘apples’ of your cheeks and blend up and outwards. Our favourite at the moment is Rose Duo limited edition.

Step 7: Do eye make-up and lips

Step 8: Close eyes and mist your face with Toner, to set complete make-up and to leave a dewy finish.
