• The Benefits of Skin Needling for YOUTHFUL SKIN!

    What Does Dermapen /Skin Needling do for the skin?

    Unlike any other treatment before it, Dermapen/skin needling has been designed to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, deep creases, and various types of scarring, including acne scarring. A micro-needling technique both corrects damage and boosts the skin’s production of collagen and elastin. Basically, Dermapen/ skin needling encourages the skin to naturally heal itself, leaving behind the youthful and refreshed appearance every patient wants.

    Micro needling involves the use of small needles that puncture the skin in order to stimulate wound healing. The idea of damaging the skin to renew it has been around for decades, used in other ways by various skin treatments. Yet, micro needling has been proven to be a safer and increasingly efficient way to generate real results for healthy and smooth skin. The refined techniques involved with Dermapen treatments make this alternative more and more popular among patients.

    What Are the Major Benefits of Skin Needling?

    While the Dermapen begins its work with controlled damage to the skin, that’s not where this treatment stops. While tiny spring-loaded needle tips vibrate against the device, applying light punctures along the treatment area, they are stimulating the healing process and ensuring that the top layer of skin cells will turnover for healthier-looking results. Once the healing has been activated by Dermapen, the final results will begin to take shape. After four to six treatments, your skin will be tightened and rejuvenated, stretch marks will be eliminated, large pores will be decreased in size, various types of scars will improve in appearance, and the signs of alopecia may be minimized.

    What Is the Skin Needling Procedure Like?

    Dermapen treatments begin with the cleaning and the anesthetization of the treatment area, usually with a topical cream. The Dermapen applicator is then placed against the skin and a qualified therapist will make a stamp-like motion along all of the areas to be treated. This process takes only a few minutes to complete and should not cause any significant discomfort. Afterwards, most patients experience redness and tightness for about one to three days. Home care is vital following your treatment, as well as any other precautionary measures that should be taken to keep your skin healthy and healing.

    Who Is a Candidate for Skin Needling?

    Dermapen is a safe, effective procedure for patients who have been experiencing troubles with their skin, such as scarring, enlarged pores, and the early signs of aging. The procedure itself is only mildly invasive and not a significant surgery to recover from, so many patients can be safely eligible for Dermapen. On the other hand, prospective patients who are pregnant or who have an active skin infection will likely be asked to postpone their Dermapen treatments. The best way to assess your eligibility is to consult with a licensed aesthetician, who can review your unique situation and advise a course of treatment to resolve your individual concerns.

  • MY STORY of starting a SKINCARE Company in 2006.

    Why I started a Skincare Company in 2006.

    As a young 21 year old woman in 1981 doing a diploma in beauty therapy my life was mapped out for me yet I didn’t know where it would lead.

    Having the opportunity to be a trainer for an international skincare company when I was 26 years old, I was always curious to why certain ingredients where used in skincare formulations.

    It was in 2001 I started reading and researching ingredients used in skincare, the benefits and what would maintain youthful skin. Being a single mum and working fulltime and not having much faith in myself, my research became became a hobby.

    One day a light bulb moment I thought “make it happen” you can do it.

    Working in Day Spas each day I witnessed how much money woman was spending on skincare to find that product that would give her YOUTHFUL skin & make her feel beautiful. Each day Woman from all ages entered the doors wanting treatments and products to make them feel great.

    The skin is the largest living organ and we need to ask ourselves are we feeding or killing our skin. For me it was all about the NATURAL ingredients and what was a woman feeding her skin.

    Make a cake, make a skincare product, just do it! I searched and found a company that used my formulations to make the first test batch of skincare. A few changes were made then in it was testing time on real people.

    January 2006 I asked a group of women to test the skincare products for 6 months, this gave me time to get the money together to do the first production run for launch January 2007.

    I remember that first day, pallets of products arrived at my rented place where the stock was stored in the garage.

    What a roller coaster of a ride, made money, spent too much money, labels lifted in production run, labels peel off weeks after arrival. It has been an interesting 10 years.

    Many a Woman would have said “To hard and give up” I am grateful that one of my personality traits is persistence.

    Let’s jump into 2017 and I am still here, sharing the love of natural/organic skincare, selling Door of Youth online. Have a warehouse now, sending products Australia wide. Loyal subscribers who have been using DOY skincare for 7+ years.

    My goals have always been high and want every woman to experience DOY skincare.

    Excited to jump into 2018, new enrich day cream & packaging. Launching Vitamin Serums range, AB / C and whitening. Anti-aging body range we are testing at present with the vision of launching mid-2018.

    I have a purple folder with all my notes, articles and first contracted signed for the first production run of skincare. One day it may become a book for many Woman out there that has a dream!

    Here are some pictures from where it all started in November 2006.

    Stock arrives, son and mate unpack, time to celebrate!

    First customer, happy smiles!                           First look of skincare, wow we have evolved.

    WOULD YOU DO ONE THING for ME?

    If you haven’t tried DOOR OF YOUTH SKINCARE, time to go shopping and welcome the products into your front door.

    DOY skincare now in 2017.

  • Colour My World

    COLOUR MY WORLD.

    Attending high school my uniform was BROWN Tunic and BEIGE shirt with a tie that if I recall was a lovely shade of BROWN. Is that why I always felt so DULL and DOWN as this uniform was a BIG part of my life for 4 years and many days looking at the DULL boring BROWN Colour.

    In my mid 20’s I was introduced to “Colour Imaging” and WOW it was wonderful to discovery how COLOURS make us feel and look FABULOUS.

    I then become a trainer for the company that offered “Colour Imaging” and today a service I offered as a Beauty and Image Stylist.

    YOUR NATURAL COLOURS

    Everyone’s skin is composed of 3 basic pigment:

    MELANIN: gives the skin a brownish appearance.

    HEMOGLOBIN: a red colour with blue undertones.

    CAROTENE: a yellow-orange pigment with golden undertones.

    These pigments combine to create the thousands of skin tones which make each of us unique. These tones also help determine the colours appropriate for you.

    Every skin contains all of these colours, yet what you will be determining are the dominant tones. When you choose correct colours, look at the undertones of the skin. Your natural skin tones will help to determine what looks best on you.

    IS IT AN OPTICAL ILLUSION?

    Colour reflects our skin tone, when we wear the correct colours, our skin looks radiant and our features are highlighted.

    Can I tell what colour suits you by just looking at you? NO the reflection in the mirror tells us as you are draped with cool/warm scarves.

    What you are looking for when doing the scarf draping is clarity in the skin, lines and imperfections in the skin will be diminish and the eyes will look brighter. You will notice that certain colours lift and enhance the natural beauty and others will make them look years older.

    LOOKING OLDER THEN I AM!

    Would have been about 3 years back I did a video for marketing. When I viewed it I was shocked to see how OLD I was looking. I had a black dress on with a beautiful coloured scarf and fabulous earring (love my earrings).

    I thought the colours in the scarf where my COOL Colours as my eye was drawn to the turquoise and pink tones. Yet the major base colours where WARM and this reflected on the skin which aged me. TAKE 2 and that scarf is now used when I offer Colour Imaging so ladies can see the impact.

    SELF- ESTEEM  

    Colours play a big part in our self- esteem. When I am styling ladies one of the questions I ask is “when you are feeling down or that time of the month, what colours do you wear?” Many times they are wearing the wrong colours, as they feel average. This is when we wear our “POP COLOUR” and the correct lipstick too so we can sparkle!

    BOARDROOM TO THE BEDROOM

    Ladies from the boardroom to the bedroom you want to be noticed. Now there are times when you have to wear a professional style for that corporate meeting, this is when you wear your best lingerie, it will make you feel sexy which will lift your confidence & self-esteem.

    As I am in my “Flirty Fifties” and want to feel fabulous all the time, I dress each day to make me feel sexy. Like today in my office writing this blog, I have my black lacy sexy bra and panties as I want to feel fabulous for my day ahead. Also have a dress and my long pearl earrings on.

    I am a DIY kind of designer woman. On Sunday I was onto a DIY project at home and had to visit Bunnings. Now what I had on was black short with nice frill on the bottom and striped pink/black top and didn’t want to get changed. So added some pink lip gloss, pick sun hat and pink sandals and off to Bunnings I went J

     

     

  • BUFF AWAY THE DEAD SKIN CELLS in 30 minutes

    Microdermabrasion introduced into the beauty services 1990’s. Regeneration confirmed In 2000 Dr Mark Rubin & Dr Steven Greenbaum statement.  For bookings at Designer Studio call 0404 528 923.

    The results an increase in the dermal layer, new collagen formation, renewed plumpness of the skin resulting in more youthful appearance.

    Positive effects of microdermabrasion fines lines will diminish, acne or scar tissue soften, the epidermis will have a youthful glow & the dermal layer is stimulated which slows the aging.

    Improvement can be seen after 1 microdermabrasion, a course of 6 is recommend over 12 weeks and then maintenance is 1 every 6-8 weeks

    From the day we are born to the day we die the top layer of our skin dies every 24 days, unlike a snake that sheds is out layer of skin, we get a build up of dead skin cells. This over the years gives us a dull & lifeless looking skin. Fine lines appear, pigmentation darkens, pores more open, scar tissues looks deeper, skin looks dull. We use exfoliations or scrub these product just skim the surface.

    The 3 layers of the skin

    Epidermis – dermis – subcutaneous layer.

    Resurfacing treatments that create trauma to the skin have been replaced with the safe, rejuvenating, non – invasive approach of microdermabrasion & skin needling.

    Preserving youth – microdermabrasion has the distinction of bringing new approach to skin care. Its ability to gently yet effectively refine & smooth the skin surface while stimulating the elastin & collagen in the dermal layer in the deeper layers of the skin

    One main key to its success is the micro massage action of the treatment. While the focus is on the epidermis, the suction used to prepare the skin and remove the crystals stimulates blood flow with its essential nutrients & oxygen to nourish the skin & fortify the cells.  The flushing movement generated below the surface by the lymph flow provides cleansing & balancing benefits.

    All skin types will benefit from microdermabrasion, from 14 yr old with acne to women in her 70’s. Instant results are seen after one treatment; as we have released the dead skin cells the serums & treatments applied with have deeper penetration giving greater benefits.

    Doing a facial with out preparing the skin with a micro, the dead skin cells are still there, serums & treatments will only sit on top of the dead skin cells not giving result that women want

    What do women want RESULTS & we want it NOW!

  • Bathroom products are they killing you?

    Natural Organic Skincare Verses Chemical Based Products

    I used 15 products just this morning and I didn’t even put on any make-up! By the time I showered, used my body wash, shaving cream, shampoo, conditioner and face wash – I was absolutely covered with sweet smelling, germ-killing, skin-softening chemicals – four to be exact. And, really, that was just the beginning! I got out of the shower, wiped some toner across my face and put some cream over a sneaky zit that I could just tell was itching to escape.

    I slathered my legs with lotion, moisturized my face (SPF 15!), and de-frizzed my curls (that’s 3 products there!). I, then, wiped on my favourite deodorant, brushed my teeth, put on some chap stick and BAM! Just like that I was 15 cosmetics deep into my chemical-filled day!

    Women today are so confused when they go to buy skincare products. There is so many products available today at beauty salon, departments stores & online.

    What is best, the one advertised on TV by a well known celebrate or shopping centre X Brand or do we go Natural & Organic will it give RESULTS?? Are the products you use tested on animals (if you saw the pictures of trauma these animals go through you would STOP using those products) more information at end of blog.

  • Health benefits of magnesium.

    mag-1

    • Improves sleep quality.
    • Calms overactive nerves, relieves stress.
    • Boosts energy level.
    • Strengthens immune system.
    • Hydrates and strengthens skin.
    • Helps proper muscle function.
    • Relieves aches, pains, spasms.
    • Improves bone strength, and protects from loss of bone (osteoporosis).
    • Required for protection and recovery from arthritis.
    • Important for recovery from many other degenerative diseases
    • It is an essential alkaline mineral for detoxification.

    So, what are some of the ways that magnesium can enhance our physical beauty? Most people know that magnesium is very important in the absorption of calcium.Magnesium plays a significant role in bone health and maintenance as well as making the teeth harder, stronger, and whiter. Magnesium slows down the aging process in the skin because magnesium stabilizes DNA and RNA which are both negatively charged and are attracted to the positively charged magnesium. Magnesium is also needed for hair to grow properly because chronic stress can cause hair to fall out as a result of unstable blood sugar, chronic inflammation, not eating properly or getting enough sleep.

    Magnesium is a very misunderstood mineral and the majority of people are unknowingly deficient in this mineral. In recent years, many people have begun to understand the health benefits of getting enough Vitamin D and so they have been wisely optimizing their intake of Vitamin D. However, because of an underlying magnesium deficiency, many of these same people experience undesirable side effects and believe the extra Vitamin D is the cause.

    Eat Your Greens! – Magnesium & Diet

    mag-2

    Since magnesium is so important for our beauty and our health, how do we ensure that we are getting enough of this mineral? Maybe, you are not aware magnesium is found at the center of the chlorophyll molecule because the capture of light energy from the sun is very dependent upon this mineral. Therefore, dark green, leafy vegetables, which are colored by chlorophyll, should be considered to be excellent sources of magnesium. Spinach is one of these green vegetables that provide us with a powerful source of magnesium. Seaweed, pumpkin and sunflower seeds are also good healthy sources of magnesium. However, whenever we cook or boil these foods, there will be a significant magnesium loss which is why the magnesium content of most refined foods is very low. So eating raw is the way to go!

    David Wolfe says in his book Eating for Beauty , “The beauty of our hair, skin, and nails depends on how mineralized we are.”  So why don’t you have yourself a yummy green spinach smoothie  for breakfast, along with a salad with plenty of green leafy veggies for lunch tomorrow, and turn on the “lamp of life” so your beauty will shine as your body reflects the powerful benefits of magnesium!

    By including magnesium in your diet every day, your beauty will be radiantly magnified!
