Intensive care for lasting results

If your skin has lost its natural balance and requires additional support and guidance, you will want to alter your nightly regimen to include an Intensive Treatment or a series of Conditioner ampoules. During this period, you will not use a serum or toner. Our Conditioner ampoules and Intensive Treatments are used for a period of 28 days to coincide with your skin’s natural cycle of skin regeneration. These products offer highly specialised care that work to quickly guide skin to a calm, even and balanced state.

The night.
An active part of life.
A time of renewal.

Dr. Hauschka night care is oil free and packed with stimuli –
making it as full of vitality as its basic element: water.

questions about oil-free night care


Why is all Dr. Hauschka night care oil free?

At night, the skin needs to breathe freely to fully regenerate. Oily products would disturb this process. The oil-free, water‑based night care products from Dr. Hauschka support the skin’s renewal and regulate its metabolic processes without burdening them.


Is oil-free night care suitable for people of all ages and with all skin conditions?

Yes. Everyone’s skin uses the night to process the influences from the day and to regenerate. Mature and very dry skin in particular requires vitality and new stimuli to encourage its natural activities.


How can people successfully switch to oil-free Dr. Hauschka night care?

The switch starts with your attitude; with saying goodbye to ‘more is better’. It is also the discovery that the skin automatically experiences more attention and respect when using oil-free night care products and finds its way back to its natural rhythm more easily. This approach may initially seem strange. To support the transition and optimally attune the skin to the Dr. Hauschka skin care concept, we recommend that you start by using Renewing Night Conditioner or Sensitive Care Conditioner for a 28-day treatment period. After this time, your skin will have completely renewed itself and be optimally prepared for the Dr. Hauschka skin care concept. For customers who do not want to use a treatment, Night Serum offers the perfect introduction to oil-free night care. After cleansing and toning in the evening, the Night Serum signals to the skin that a new part of the day is beginning. This clarity is often lacking due the lack of rhythm in our modern lives – and our nightly skin regeneration often suffers as a result.
The different qualities of day and night can be emphasised by applying a nourishing mask in the early evening. This marks the end of the working day for your skin and gives it a final dose of nourishment and protection. When you remove the mask, your skin can leave the daytime behind, breathe freely and start to regenerate.
A treatment from a trained Dr. Hauschka esthetician is a further great way to be introduced to the skin care. This sensitises your entire body, making it particularly receptive to nourishing stimuli. You will also receive tips for your very own skin care concept with daytime and night-time products that rhythmically complement each another.


Is the oil-free night care compatible with a nourishing mask, a little Daily Hydrating Eye Cream or lip care before bed?

Applying a mask in the early evening can assist the skin with the transition from day to night. As for all other oil-based products, the important thing is to ensure that they are removed before night-time with Soothing Cleansing Milk and/or Cleansing Cream. The Dr. Hauschka lip care products and Daily Hydrating Eye Cream are also designed for daytime use. However, you can gladly apply Night Serum to the area around your eyes – or leave Eye Revive to take effect overnight. Eye Revive is also water based and can be optimally combined with Night Serum.


When is the best time to make the switch?

Every evening is the perfect evening to introduce your skin to oil-free night care. All you need are curiosity and the decision to take the plunge and try something new.


How will my skin change if I switch to oil-free night care?

On a morning, your skin will look visibly rested and have a radiance that shines from within. Your face may have a slight shine despite you not having applied cream to it the night before. What you are seeing is the result of your skin’s nightly metabolic processes – an observation that you will not be able to make when using oil-based ‘all-in-one’ skin care.


If my skin feels taut at night, is that a sign that I need an oil-based night cream?

No. It is simply a sign that your skin is starting to stir. Your skin is awakening and taking on a more active role in its regeneration process. Any sense of tightness should therefore be interpreted as a good sign and will quickly pass. It only occurs during the transition phase and has normally gone away entirely by the next morning.


What can I do to stop my skin feeling taut in the evening?

Try to tolerate the brief sense of tautness and give your skin time to complete the transition. Help your skin to rediscover its natural balance by ending the day with a moisturising mask (please remove this before going to sleep) or an ampoule treatment.


So far, my evening skin care regime has only ever involved cleansing and toning. What are the benefits of using Night Serum as a third skin care step?

Night Serum consistently extends the concept of oil-free night care: Cleansing removes any dirt, while toning with Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner stimulates the skin’s natural activities. These two steps belong together and prepare the skin, opening the door to the night. By applying Night Serum, the skin is then revitalised and supported in its nightly renewal. If we envisage the rhythm between day and night as a swing that swings us from the day to the night and back again, Night Serum is the additional ‘push’ that takes the skin from day to night. Customers who want to pay more attention to their skin in the evening particularly enjoy this third step as a more conscious way of transitioning from day to night.


When my skin awakens after an oil-free night, how do I support it in the morning?

In the morning, cleanse your skin to remove any excess metabolic products that have reached its outer layers during the night. Next, tone the skin with Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner. It is now optimally prepared for the protective daytime skin care. Select this from the Dr. Hauschka daytime skin care products in line with your skin condition.


Can my skin fully regenerate if I do not get much sleep at night?

When it comes to the skin’s regeneration, it is not so much about the amount of sleep you get but the quality of the sleep. People need different amounts of sleep. It is even possible to sleep too much – this is something that is familiar to anyone who finds it hard to stay awake on a day off work. Instead of counting the hours, you should try to find your own personal rhythm.


How do I apply the oil-free night care if the normal day/night rhythm is interrupted when travelling or due to shift work?

Oil-free night care should be enjoyed whenever your body is at rest. It is at this time that your skin starts to regenerate and is optimally supported by the night care. The point when your body is at rest is therefore the point when you should support your skin with oil-free night care – regardless of whether the sun is shining or the moon is out. Remember that frequently changing your rhythm puts greater strain on the body than when it works regular shifts (e.g. always at night).
