Finally…the 3rd part of the Acne Revision Trilogy is balance the ratio of home treatments with professional treatments!

To get phenomenal results (which we do time and time again) you need to play your part!

As we’ve spoken about in previous posts, it’s imperative to:

  • Embrace a healthy diet
  • Drink 2-3L purified water per day
  • Take 4-6 DMK efa plus daily
  • Engage in positive thinking, exercise and meditation to balance your emotions and mindset.

Yet to truly get results that spark talk, you need to also:

  • Use the DMK Home Prescriptives regime twice daily
  • Apply DMK home treatments every three days
  • Visit your DMK Technician for weekly professional treatments.

Here is a powerful acne-busting pampering session you can perform at home:

  • Firstly cleanse with ACU-KLEANSE, and apply dermatox. Leave on for 3-5 mins then remove with warm water
  • Apply ACU-THERM to the pimples and congested areas, and leave on for 3 mins
  • Blot with a tissue and apply foamy lift mixed with exoderma peel and leave on for 30 mins
  • Remove in the shower with cleanser, and finish with pore reduction drops, beta gel, direct delivery vitamin c serum as a base
  • Apply ACU-KLEAR on the breakouts and spray the skin with ACU-MIST
  • Apply ACU-MOIST on the face, spray again
  • Throughout the day always apply DMK sunscreen and dust over with actrol powder, apply DMKC Foundation if desired.

Overnight…

Apply ACU-THERM on pimples and congested areas. Leave on for 5 minutes and then blot with a tissue, before applying retosin over the top, to leave on overnight.

Keep smiling on your acne revision journey, as great results await you!

Think positively about balancing your emotional and mental well-being!

Too often when we’re upset about having acne, our emotional response exacerbates the condition even further, and it can be rather difficult so see past the blemishes.

We understand this first-hand; however the best way to leave the blemishes behind is to break the reactive chain in your mind, and then your body.

This can sound easier said, than done. However there are many ways to amplify positivity in your life: meditation, relaxation, gentle exercise as well as attuning your mind to think positive thoughts, some call affirmations.

As acne can worsen greatly, when one has a poor view of oneself, a very good way to help boost your self image; while simultaneously balancing your emotions; is to begin visualising what you would like your skin to look like, each night before you go to sleep.

Even if it’s just for 5 minutes, your body and mind will thank you for the relaxation meditation can bring; and by breaking the link in the acne chain; and promoting harmony in your mind and emotions, you can begin to slowly turn the tide.

Whether its emotional stress, nutritional deficiency, or hormonal imbalance you are experiencing – your skin will be affected by it. However you can bring your not-so-happy part of you back into homeostasis, into complete harmony.

One-way is to increase your serotonin levels: the feel-good happy hormone.

Seabuckthorn Oil is featured in DMK efa plus and it does just this. As well as nurturing new skin growth, needed for the skin to heal.

Another way is to exercise daily! Chemicals known as endorphins are released when you do so. They help to lessen pain, and so although you may initially dread it, exercise is truly amazing for both your happiness and your health.

But if you are feeling down-on-your-luck, and you just can’t see the ‘woods for the trees’ focus on eating well, drinking water, and taking DMK efa plus until and beyond you see the condition begin to shift.

Then with a little burst of positivity you can start to change your mindset as well!

Make sure you read tomorrow’s post about treatments you can do at home…

At DMK we’re very astute on the subject of ridding unwanted, uninvited acne. We believe in breaking the condition down into smaller more manageable steps, to attain a holistic result.

Over the next few days, we will share these equally important aspects, starting today….

Firstly a healthy diet and condition-based supplements are absolutely vital!

In our humble opinion, acne sufferers should seriously think about eliminating dairy, wheat, gluten and sugar; and introduce more alkaline foods into their diet. As well as drinking 2-3L of purified water each day. The aim is to flush the bacteria and over-abundance of oil from the skin!

Alkaline foods, as well as being highly nutritious, help to balance the pH levels in the body and keep it disease free. It’s been noted that highly acidic foods are linked closely to inflamed conditions, and one such condition, is acne.

The kind of foods you should be reaching for are green, leafy vegetables. Hazelnuts, pine nuts, almonds and coconut; as well as herbs and spices such as coriander, turmeric and basil; to name just a few!

Yet when it comes to supplements DMK efa plus tablets are perfect for the essential fatty acids they contain, as well as the vital mineral zinc. Which is not so well known!

Zinc is simple a must for acne sufferers. It’s very beneficial for growth and wound healing, as well as playing its part in balancing hormones. Found in seafood, poultry, nuts, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, alfalfa fortified cereals and legumes; zinc is a secret hero in the fight against acne.

So if you are suffering from the dreaded condition, you can today change one thing…what you put into your body!

Try ‘Google-ing’ recipes for zinc-rich foods, and increasing the amount of pure water you drink per day!

Tomorrow we talk emotions, and mental well being… so stay tuned.

Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 13.02.31Jessica’s story is one of our favourite stories of late, and her amazing quotes just keep coming. Her story is heart-wrenching in parts but with a goose-bump-all-over ending!

‘In my desperation I paid £180 for an alleged cure, Roaccutaine; this drug appeared to be a light in the darkness. My last chance, despite the poignant concern over the high suicidal side effects. But after being advised to watch the Dying for Clear Skin programme the day after my first DMK consultation, any desire to use Roaccutaine was obliterated.’

We’re very glad Jessica found DMK at exactly the right time! After a series of treatments with UK DMK skin technician Suzanne, Jessica began to show her face, look people in the eye and gain the confidence she needed in order to heal.

‘I was so enamoured by Susanne’s drive and diligence to hear my hearts cry. I’m sure you’re all aware of the Walt Disney Classic Cinderella and the pivotal moment she’s left alone, distraught and without hope of better. Her fairy godmother appears and blesses her with the chance of a greater tomorrow. Susanne has rightly earned the pseudo title of my Fairy Godmother. I’ll be forever in her debt.’

We hope that Jessica’s humbling words will bring courage to anyone experiencing the agonising emotional aspect of acne!

danneJessica and her inspiring story seems to have sparked talk around the world.

We wanted to share some of her heartfelt words, and absolute reverence for DMK, and the man himself, Dannè:

‘Dannè, you are one of my heroes. I constantly think about your determination to secure a solution for this [acne] dreadful skin disorder. Your tenacity and integrity; never allowing acne to defeat you-and now us! You inspire me to want to be better, to do better. You’ve given me the opportunity to chase my career dreams in thepublic eye. To do something as simple as walk the streets in daylight with my head held high.’

Again Jessica, we are in amazement of your determination, and spirit!

The UK DMK team has shared their inspiring story about 19-year-old Jessica. Her words are spine-tingling lovely, and we wanted to share!

Jessica says she was just ‘another victim dying for clean skin’ and that after watching ‘severe acne distorting’ her appearance, it sadly took away her ‘confidence, joy, self esteem, and self worth.’

She claims that at age 19 she ‘shrank from the world’ often hiding from people and her reflection. With acne running rampage over her face, neck and entire happiness; something needed to give.

But then Jessica found DMK.

“The DMK treatments and home care products which work hand in hand, have changed my life’

I’ve been undergoing treatments for a year and have seen a substantial difference in the quality and overall health of my skin.

Without Dannè and the DMK company – I honestly don’t know where I’d be today. If living at all. It’s an ongoing battle,
a daily walk, but all thanks to Dannè/DMK, I envision myself winning.’

And to that we say hurray. What an inspiring story. Jessica we wish you the very best, and we’re very glad you found us!

The below clip is an excerpt taken from BBC3’s 2012 documentary, DYING FOR CLEAR SKIN.

The documentary follows the journey of those affected by acne, and in particular the drug Roaccutane.

This clip follows Acne sufferer, William, who turned to DMK rather than the anti-acne drug, Roaccutane (which has been linked to severe depression and suicide). 

This is his story.

The follow-on story for William post-documentary can be viewed here: Dying for clear skin: Will’s story

A touching letter from a happy DMK client…

“It is with the greatest and most sincere pleasure that I can honestly say that my seven year battle with acne has finally come to an end. As a continual sufferer of acne I can openly admit the detrimental effect that this condition had on my overall self esteem. I was constantly battling with feelings of insecurity as no make-up would be effective, or strong enough to cover the ever-increasing irritated areas of skin. On occasions I would forgo going out in an attempt to avoid people seeing my skin at its worst. As much as I loved to swim, on many occasions I would opt for indoor activities as I knew swimming would ultimately lead to people seeing me without make up. After several trips to various dermatologists, a series of different medications, many of which caused more damage then harm, countless beauty products, miracle diets and hormone tablets, the acne would not subside and continued to rear its ugly head, naturally at the most inconvenient times.

After many more months of just ‘putting up’ with the condition I decided to go for a facial, in an attempt to reduce further complications, infection and scarring. Evidently I went for a DMK facial where my results would really speak for themselves. Upon arrival I was treated with exceptional customer service from skin technicians who weren’t trying to sell me ‘the latest technology treatments’ with ‘money back guarantees’. Instead I was presented with therapists who were honest and we were able to openly discuss my situation, previous procedures and failed attempts at combating the acne. DMK offered products and treatments that were not only treating the acne, but also treating the cause of the acne, an approach towards the condition that had clearly been overlooked for seven years. The DMK technicians were committed to helping me achieve optimum results and it was through the weekly treatments as well as the extensive range of home care products that I was able to achieve such extraordinary and successful results within an alarmingly short period of time.

My results are amazing! Not only has the acne disappeared but the scarring has been significantly reduced and is still continuing to clear. It is with my utmost confidence and faith that I would strongly recommend and encourage anyone who is suffering from acne to try DMK.”

A successful Australian actress and author, no one owns the stage quite like this iconic performer.  Performing since she was just two years old, Rhonda certainly doesn’t shy away from the camera. And why would she, with skin this good?

We quizzed her on how DMK works for her, and how she stays looking and feeling so fabulous at 50+.

Rhonda

Q1. What sold you on the DMK method?

IN MY BUSINESS OF THEATRE, CABARET, TELEVISION AND ENDLESS PUBLICITY REQUESTS- IT BECOMES INCREDIBLY DEMANDING TO CONTINUALLY LOOK GOOD. I HAVE NEVER REGULARLY ORGANISED THE TIME IN MY BUSY SCHEDULE, BUT WITH THE RESULTS I AM GETTING FROM DMK AND THE MAGNIFICENT TREATMENTS, I NOW MAKE TIME AND AM THRILLED WITH RESULTS.

Q2. Is there a particular treatment that you simply love?

I LOVE THE RESULTS I GET FROM THE ENZYME MASKS. MY SKIN FEELS ABSOLUTELY RENEWED AND PLUMP AFTER I HAVE THIS TREATMENT. THE SKIN FEELS TIGHTER, THE PORES OF MY SKIN SMALLER AND HELPS CREATE THAT FLAWLESS FINISH.

Q3. If you had to choose one product to take on holiday with you which would it be?

DEFINITELY THE HERB & MINERAL SPRAY – IT MAKES MY SKIN FEEL FRESH AND MOISTURISED- NOTHING LIKE IT AFTER A FLIGHT OR WHEN MY SKIN IS DEHYDRATED.

Q4.How important is flawless skin in your industry?

VERY! ESPECIALLY WITH THE HD CAMERAS! I GET SO MANY HITS ON MY WEBSITE ASKING MY AGE AND MY SECRETS OF ANTI AGEING. IT’S SO IMPORTANT TO LOOK YOUR BEST AT ALL TIMES – MY BUSINESS IS FAIRLY CRUEL AND UNFORGIVING!

Q5. You look fabulous for your age, is it all down to a dedicated skin regime? Any other tips?

MY MUM LOOKED GREAT WELL INTO HER 70’S SO IT’S PARTLY GENETIC. APRT FROM DMK OFCOURSE, MY BEST TIP IS SLEEP. IF I DONT HAVE AT LEAST 9 HOURS OF SLEEP, MY SKIN LOOKS TIRED. OF COURSE LOTS OF WATER AND HEALTHY DIET HELPS BUT SLEEP FOR ME IS THE KEY. I ALSO RECOMMEND DMK EFA+ SUPPLEMENTS. THESE ARE FABULOUS FOR GENERAL WELL BEING.

Q6. If there’s one word you could use to describe DMK what would it be?

EXTRAORDINARILY FABULOUS!

This week, we shared our favourite products with our Facebook fans.

Working for DMK means we have access to the best products available, and we get to try them all – yes, we are very spoilt! So who better to ask than DMK staff for which products they recommend.

 

Staff Pick #1: GRAPHIC DESIGNER, Jules, loves her DMKC Foundation and Brush.

“I’m obsessed with this stuff! It’s lightweight, long lasting and actually feels good for my skin – and the compact lasts forever! I’ve converted so many friends to DMKC and
they all love it!”

Do you love DMKC Foundations? You won’t look back! www.DMKCosmetics.com

 

Staff Pick #2: DIGITAL DESIGNER, Jasmine, loves beta gel.

“After suffering from a bad heat rash, beta gel* saved me! It cooled the area and smoothed the bumps almost instantly! I recommend this to everyone.”

*Designed to revise irritations, beta gel is recommended daily for most skins.

 

Staff Pick #3: ART DIRECTOR, Katie, can’t live without her solar damage gel.

“Drinking water and solar damage gel are my staple hydrators, but using solar damage gel daily* is DEFINITELY the key to locking the moisture in my skin and keeping it there. Summer or not, I use this all year round.”

*Solar damage gel is also a saviour for sunburn and dry skin. Solar damage gel is designed to revise and minimise environmental damage.

 

Staff Pick #4: ADMIN ASSISTANT, Kristen, loves a pre night-out exfoliation.

“It’s a ritual for me to sleep in a micro peel masque the night before an event. It removes dead cell build-up* and plumps up my skin at the same time. Make-up looks better and lasts longer on my skin after micro peel.”

*Micro peel is known for its microscopic exfoliation affects, which requires no scrubbing or abrasive granules. Daily scrubbing/exfoliation is not recommended by DMK as it can encourage excess oil production.

 

Staff Pick #5: PR MANAGER, Ismay, loves the new Klear Collection, in particular, ACU-MIST.

“ACU-MIST is the best thing to find its way into my bathroom cabinet. If you find yourself touching your face while you’re working, like I do, you’ll probably notice breakouts in these areas. To keep these germs and bacteria under control I spray ACU-MIST over my moisturiser morning and night. My breakouts have lessened since using this – highly recommend!”

The Klear Collection range is now available in stores Australia-wide!
