Specialized 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 ampules. During this period, you will not use a serum or toner.
Our Conditioner ampules 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 specialized care that works 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 perform its essential night-time functions of cleansing, oil production and renewal. Oil-based products interrupt these important processes. Oil-free, water-based night care products from Dr. Hauschka support the skin’s renewal processes so they can work more effectively.
This approach may initially seem strange; however, it enables the skin to care for itself as it is biologically able to. Oil-free night care respects the skin’s natural processes, allowing the skin to find its way back to its natural rhythm more easily.


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

In the morning, your skin will look visibly rested and have a natural radiance that comes from allowing your skin to perform its natural processes. You may discover that your face has a slight shine despite the fact that you did not apply a cream before bed. What you are seeing is the result of your skin’s nightly processes at work – a quality you wouldn’t observe when using oil-based skin care.


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

Yes. At night, everyone’s skin needs to cleanse and renew itself. In particular, mature and very dry skin require products that offer vitality and support the skin’s natural renewal processes.


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

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.You have several options for switching to oil-free night care:
1. Night Serum: Night Serum offers the perfect introduction to oil-free night care. After cleansing and toning in the evening, simply apply a small amount of Night Serum. The unique formulation signals the skin that evening has arrived and it is time to get to work performing its essential night-time processes. This clarity between day and night is often lacking due the lack of rhythm in our modern lives – and our nightly skin regeneration often suffers as a result. Night Serum helps the skin rediscover its natural balance.
2. Regenerating Serum: Like Night Serum, Regenerating Serum is a water-based, oil-free preparation. It is recommended for all people with mature skin. Regenerating Serum supports the skin’s natural regenerative functions, helping to maintain visibly firmer skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. After cleansing, Regenerating Serum is applied to the skin as the last step of your night care. No toner is needed.
3. A Mask: You can also emphasize the different qualities of day and night by applying a nourishing mask in the early evening. This will mark the end of the day for your skin with 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.
4. A Conditioner: To support the transition and best attune the skin to Dr. Hauschka Night Care, you can 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. You would then use Night Serum or Regenerating Serum.
5. A Signature Treatment: A treatment from a trained Dr. Hauschka esthetician can also help transition you to oil-free night care. This will sensitize your entire body, making it particularly receptive to nourishing stimuli. You will also receive guidance for a personalized skin care regimen with daytime and night-time products that rhythmically complement each another.


Is oil-free night care compatible with a mask, eye cream or lip care before bed?

As noted above, applying a mask in the early evening can assist the skin with the transition from day to night. 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. Dr. Hauschka lip care and eye creams are formulated specifically for daytime use, however, Night Serum and Regenerating Serum can be applied to the area around your eyes. Eye Revive can also be left on the skin to take effect overnight as it is water based and can be optimally combined with Night Serum.


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 becoming active. Any sense of tightness is an indication that your skin is awakening and taking on a more active role in its regeneration process. This is a good sign and will quickly pass. Tightness will only occur during the transition phase to oil-free night care, and will normally go away by the next morning. You will also find that ending the day with a mask or a conditioner will also help soothe any skin tightness. If you use a mask, please remember to rinse your face before going to sleep. treatment.


I currently follow an oil-free Dr. Hauschka regimen of only cleansing and toning at night. What are the benefits of adding Night Serum?

Night Serum supports and enhances the concept of oil-free night care: Cleansing and toning prepare the skin, opening the door to the night: cleansing removes dirt and Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner balance and support the skin’s natural processes. These two steps belong together and prepare the skin, opening the door to the night. Night Serum revitalizes, stimulating and supporting the skin’s renewal processes so they are more effective.


After an oil-free night, how should I care for my skin in the morning?

Cleanse, tone then moisturize:
Cleanse your skin Cleansing Cream to remove dirt and impurities that have reached its surface overnight.
1. Tone the skin with Facial Toner, or Clarifying Toner or Regenerating Serum.
2. Moisturize. Your skin is now optimally prepared for protective daytime skin care. Choose the moisturizer that is recommended for your skin condition.


If I don’t get much sleep at night, is my skin fully able to renew itself?

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. As long as you have some hours of quality sleep, your skin will be able to accomplish its night-time work. Instead of counting the hours, you should try to find your own personal rhythm.


If the normal day/night rhythm is interrupted due to travel or my work schedule, when should I apply oil-free night care?

Your oil-free night care regimen should be followed during your sleep hours and your body is at rest. Whether the sun is shining or the moon is out, this is the time when your skin starts to regenerate and is optimally supported by Dr. Hauschka Night Care. Keep in mind that frequently altering your waking/sleeping patterns puts added strain on the body.
