We can peel skin off by layers. The more layers removed, the younger looking the skin.  It is also important to find out from the skin therapist  or doctor how many layers they are removing during any peel treatment.

*False – The skin is not like an onion where layers can be peeled off and “voila…new skin.” In fact, skin has only two basic layers, the epidermis  and everything else underneath.  Cells are always proliferating, changing configurations and migrating to the surface forming our corneum  which is the outermost part of the epidermis.  It is the REDUNDANT dead cell material that needs to be exfoliated at different levels and de-conjested. Anything else more aggressive will create trauma in the skin.  The auto-immune functions will work over time in defensive response  and the skin will ultimately break down or suffer other contraindications.

The DMK Mix ‘n’ Masque Shower Power combo…

Simply apply micro peel to the face before a shower, followed by a ten-minute hydrating masque while you dry your hair, and voilà ! A dewy complexion is that easy!

‘The brilliance of the Shower Power combo is that it slots right into your normal routine, leaving the micro peel on while you shower and the hydrating masque as you dry your hair, you are no more time poor than you were originally!’ Says Olivia Wells, Miss Universe Australia 2013.

micro peel is known for its simplicity and efficacy! The gentle gel-like masque is easy to apply, helping to remove dead skin, for a fresh glow. Whereas the aptly-named hydrating masque offers supreme hydration for skin that needs a pick-me-up. When the two are teamed together, they can create a radiant, glow in under 20 mins!

Olivia admitted that when she is time poor, she is ‘not the most religious weekly Enzyme masque-er’, due to her busy work schedule.

However she says that the Shower Power combo is ‘perfect to get you through, until you have time to go and see your clinician, or find time for an at-home Enzyme Treatment!’

The busy medical student is currently packing her bags once again, this time she’s off to Cambodia for more volunteer work. When packing her bags, the star told us that the combo was on the top of her list!

‘I packed my micro peel & hydrating masque – having a very busy schedule, this is the perfect way to treat my skin when I want to be out sightseeing in my spare time.’

Another Mix ‘n’ Masque combo that’s amazing for saving time is Seeing Red, needing to apply red vein crème for just 5 minutes, before hydrating masque is applied over the top! This combo is to diminish the redness of fragile capillaries, before stepping out of the house!

aminodine is our remarkable anti-ageing formulation designed for diabetic clients and smokers, with noticeable cross-line wrinkles!

This product contains aminoguanadine, often referred to as ‘the golden water’, which aids in slowing down the wrinkling process; and freshening the pallid, grey skins of heavy smokers.

Its aim is to act against cross-linked wrinkles in mature, middle-aged and sun-damaged skins; and when used in conjunction with night firming crème, offer radiance and firmness for mature skin also!

However it’s not an option for younger clients who wish to prevent Glycosylation!

The formulation contains:

• Aminoguanadine – An anti-oxidant and glucose activator. It helps to inhibit Glycosylation in ageing skin: the precursor to deep cross-linked wrinkles!

• Witch Hazel – To help soothe and give relief to irritated and inflamed skin conditions. It also contains antiseptic properties.

• Cucumber Oil – A soothing agent that helps reduce puffiness. It’s rich in nutrients and vitamin C, which means it’s a great help to improve elasticity!

How it works?

The spritz soaks into the skin, assisting to re-activate glucose and normalise the free radical effect of Glycation: which acts to prevent the incidence of cross-linked wrinkles in ageing skin.

You may just notice your skin is firmer, with a fresh pinky colour, within a few short weeks!

How we found it?

This formulation creation was no accident. Our researchers observed that formulating certain ingredients into a spray application, helped to maximise the efficiency and efficacy of the delivery!

Their design was based on a fine water-based mist, to imitate the action of the skin’s own glands.

And as we say time and time again at DMK: the aim is to replicate the body’s ability to regenerate itself naturally.

Try this combo for mature skin…

Using the following products morning and night!
direct delivery vitamin c, beta gel, seba-e, nite firming crème, eye tone or fine line crème, aminodine and DMK efa plus!

Remember!
On very thickset, heavy wrinkles we recommend our DMK Skin Revision Treatments, including Enzyme Therapy Treatments and the Pro Alpha Six-layer Peel.

Did you know that Glycosylation is possibly the single biggest contributor to cross-linked wrinkles?

As we age the storage of excess sugars in the body shift to the connective tissues of the skin. These excess sugars pool around healthy skin cells and crystallise, causing a weight on the collagen thus reducing elasticity and normal cell proliferation.

The skin then starts to collapse into deep folds and wrinkles, and thus creates the condition known as Glycosylation; often refereed to as the ‘sugaring’ effect of the cells.

This is because excess glucose undergoes a chemical change to become the not-so-becoming glycosyl: a free radical!

So there you have it… the two main contributors of cross-linkage wrinkling and ageing skin: free radicals and Glycosylation!

There is hope though, to be revealed in blogs to come….

DMK Enzyme Treatments are sophisticated, and exclusive. And created by our very own Danné Montague King: a leading Beverly Hills Botanical Scientist, Cosmetic Chemist and Skin Specialist.

Our range of treatments and products are created with plant-based ingredients, which work in harmony with the skin’s natural chemistry. We believe that working with the skin, rather than merely acting on the skin’s surface, obtains talked-about results!

An excessive build up of dead cell tissues, combined with poor skin functioning, is what contributes to wrinkles, fine lines, premature aging, pigmentation, blackheads, and breakouts!

That’s where Enzyme Therapy comes in, to effectively:

• Hydrolyse dead redundant cell build up
• Alleviate debris and impurities, leaving a clear healthy smooth complexion
• Increased cellular activity for superior skin nourishment
• Supreme oxygenation for tissue regeneration
• Anti oxidants to fight and combat free radical damage
• Encourages your own skin to form new collagen
• Provides renewed elastin activity for tighter, firmer, skin.

Enzymes allow for unique treatments, which match the individual’s body chemistry, regardless of ethnic background, gender, age, or skin condition!

Optimal skin functioning is the key to slowing the aging process and correcting skin conditions naturally.

Once you have experienced Enzyme Therapy you won’t settle for anything less!

We can’t stop ageing entirely, but we can take the very best care of ourselves. We’ve come up with a fairy easy equation to understand how to best take care of your skin.

How well you take care of yourself – environmental damage = your genetic potential!

Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 9.36.20 AM

DO:

  • Always, always, always wear SPF sunscreen + a hat!
  • Eat an alkaline diet, taking in all the colours of the rainbow via fruits and vegetables
  • Swallow DMK EFA plus daily for skin to retain its turgidity and bounce
  • Add antioxidant Resveratrol to your daily supplements!
  • Vitamin A. Use it topically at night to keep your skin performing at its best
  • Use DMK skincare regime religiously, both morning and night. DMK gets its active ingredients to the skin’s core, to positively influence the lifecycle of the skin.
  • Get your sleep! 8 hours will do wonders for your skin (not to mention your happiness.)
  • Protect yourself from UV exposure
  • Say no to stress! Try meditation.
  • Enjoy life…

DON’T:

  • Use inferior skin products with cheap fillers and nasty ingredients
  • Miss regular treatments – stick to them. With new skin cells turnover every 28 days, it’s important to nurture the new!
  • Smoke or drink to excess. It’s just not compatible with youthful glowing skin
  • Say no to sugar! Too much of it creates deep wrinkling in the skin, known as Glycation
  • Forget the power of vitamin C, both internally and externally, for youthful looks!
  • Sleep in your make up! It can cause congestion. Plus it looks messy on your pillow…
