With Dr. Hauschka, your wedding skin care preparation will be seamless, visibly effective, and affordable. We at SA Weddings have the inside scoop and Dr. Hauschka wants to share their pro make-up tips and fabulous skin care products with you!


PRIOR to your Wedding Day

Ladies, Dr. Hauschka wants to help you prepare your natural canvas to look flawless with your wedding day make-up. This is vital if you wish to feel your most radiant self and for your make-up to last the entire duration of your grand celebration.
Here are three easy to follow pro tips from the Dr. Hauschka Team:

Pro Tip 1:
Book a set of facials approximately 4 months in advance, once a month, before your big day. The earlier you begin your skin care preparation, the easier your make-up will take on your wedding day. Your make-up will enhance the beautiful, natural canvas that you already possess and will ensure your skin is luminous and dewy to give off that perfect, natural glow.

Pro Tip 2:
“We at Dr. Hauschka definitely do not recommend having any extraction less than a week prior to the big day.” - Dr. Hauschka South Africa

This is important to note as extractions cause trauma to the epidermis of the skin - the canvas that we want to help you optimally prepare. If the odd blemish does appear, refrain from fiddling with the skin and rather consult a skin care professional to avoid causing further damage or trauma to the skin.

Pro Tip 3:
The Dr. Hauschka Team firmly believes that great skin care starts from the inside out. Brides, drink plenty of water and eat healthy, nutrient-rich food at least a month prior to your big day so that your skin is in peak condition. We also recommend that you consider taking a collagen supplement 4-6 months before the wedding day. A healthy body equals healthy skin.

ON your Wedding Day

It is not uncommon for brides to resort to ultra expensive treatments to get their skin ready before their wedding day. Dr. Hauschka shows you how you can implement their amazing products into your daily routine and achieve the same ravishing results without breaking the bank.
Here are our top three Dr. Hauschka must-have products:

Product 1:
Use the Dr. Hauschka Renewing Night Conditioning Ampoules for one month before the big day. With this moisturising treatment, your skin will be in immaculate condition and well hydrated thanks to the active ingredients in these incredible ampoules*.

* “Over a treatment period of four weeks, the composition with extracts of medicinal plants and silver, targets and stimulates your skin’s natural abilities. Used for the recommended duration of 28 days, these powerful ampoules accompany a full renewal cycle of the skin. Whatever your current skin condition, you will witness noticeable revival.” - Dr. Hauschka South Africa

Product 2:
This product is a MUST for the canvas you desire. A gentle exfoliation using the Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Clay Mask the day before followed by a Dr. Hauschka Hydrating or Soothing Mask will give your wedding day skin that radiant glow. The Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Clay Mask deeply cleanses, optimally preparing the skin for a treatment mask. Blackheads are softened, skin is soothed and the appearances of redness and blemishes are diminished.

Product 3:
The best option in combination with the clay mask is the Dr. Hauschka Soothing Mask, which fortifies sensitive skin prone to inflammation and redness whilst helping it to retain its moisture. Enjoy your special day with the comfort of knowing your skin is protected and guaranteed to give off a natural glow and even complexion with Dr. Hauschka’s range of facial masks.

Now that you have the inside scoop on how to prepare your skin for the application of your wedding day makeup, Dr. Hauschka also has pro tips for flawless and long lasting make-up:

Pro Wedding Make-up Tips for on the day

Pro Tip 1:
Brides, hydrate your face and allow your day creams to settle into the pores well before your make-up application. If you apply your make-up too soon after your cleanser and moisturiser application, you will risk your make-up not setting evenly across your face.

Pro Tip 2:
Dry powder sets wet make-up, wet toner sets dry powder.
It is vital to note that with wet make-up like a foundation, a setting powder is needed to achieve an even complexion. After applying a setting powder, cement this into the skin using the Dr. Hauschka Facial Toner. This toner not only sets the product but also hydrates the skin, resulting in a flawless and glowing complexion.

Pro Tip 3:
Following the same dry sets wet and wet sets dry rule from above, even wet make-up such as the Dr. Hauschka Liquid Eyeliner, requires a layer of dry eyeshadow to set it. Dr. Hauschka Eyeshadow not only creates striking accents but contains nourishing botanical ingredients that are gentle on the delicate skin of the eyes. For longevity, dot the eyeshadow with the Dr. Hauschka Eye Definer Brush for precise application along the eye line.

Bonus tip: pack in your Travel-size Dr. Hauschka Toner on your wedding day and give your rouged cheeks a quick spritz to ensure your make-up lasts the entire day.

Pro Tip 4:
Dr. Hauschka recommends the longevity lip rule:

1. Apply lip liner along the perimeter of your lips.
2. Apply your desired lipstick.
4. Blot the lips.
4. Reapply your lipstick.

To blot the lips, place a single tissue over the lips while either pouting the lips or kissing the tissue. With a brush, dust or dot some rouge through the single tissue to set your Dr. Hauschka Lipstick in place and say hello to long-lasting and moisturised lips all day!

Another Bonus Tip: make sure one of your bridesmaids has your lippy on hand to touch up if needed. This way you will always be kiss and camera ready!
