    My days are hectic, working, running the house, being a taxi for the kids, so much to do that when night time arrives and time for bed. I say to myself “why bother cleansing my skin”.

    Let me share a short story.
    I decided to have AN AFFAIR as I was in a marriage of emptiness, stopped caring for myself, gained weight and thought who really cares? It was January 2014 MY AFFAIR started and it took a while for me to wake up and realised that I had to TAKE THE TIME TO MAKE THE TIME to nurture me if I wanted this AFFAIR to last.

  • By age 40, we have lost 10%-20% of our collagen.

    As a baby our skin is plump, firm, smooth and rosy, thanks to all of that collagen in our dermis (middle layer of the skin) Our body stops producing collagen in our mid to late 20’s. Then at age 30 our collagen production starts to decline and that is when we start to see those fine lines and wrinkle on our skin.

    After age 30, our collagen level drops 1%-2% every year.

  • Benefits of Cucumber Water

    The other day I had a massage and was given cucumber water, was so refreshing. We need to keep our body hydrated and some of us just don’t like water without a flavour. So I have been drinking CUCUMBER Water since my massage and want to share with you the benefits.

    Cheers!

    HYDRATION

    1. 1. It keeps you hydrated.

    Your body can’t function properly without water. Most people should aim to drink six to eight glasses of water per day, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. We know we’re supposed to drink water throughout the day, but sometimes plain water gets boring. Adding cucumber gives it some extra flavour, encouraging you to drink more.

    WEIGHT LOSS

    1. It helps with weight loss.

    If you’re trying to lose weight, replacing sugary sodas, sports drinks, and juices with cucumber water can help you cut some serious calories from your diet.

    Staying hydrated also helps you feel full. Sometimes your body confuses thirst with hunger. You may feel like you’re hungry, when you’re actually thirsty.

    How will you know the difference? Reach for a tall glass of cucumber water first. If your hunger goes away after finishing the drink, you were thirsty. If you’re still hungry, then you know it’s hunger.

    ANTIOXIDANTS

    1. It delivers antioxidants.

    Antioxidants are substances that help prevent and delay cell damage from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Oxidative stress can lead to chronic conditions like:

    • cancer
    • diabetes
    • heart disease
    • Alzheimer’s
    • eye degeneration

    Research has shown that antioxidants may be able to reverse or stop this damage. This is why you should each fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants. Cucumbers fall into this category. They’re rich in:

    • vitamin C
    • beta carotene
    • manganese
    • molybdenum
    • several flavonoid antioxidants

    Would like to hear if you have tried Cucumber Water, leave a comment.

    Stay Youthful,

    1. Organise your office

    Organise your office and place your desk near the window, give yourself the best view, place some colourful flowers outside to brighten your day. Touch paperwork once, open the letter, pay the account, print receipt and file. All in once action saves time.

    1. Clear small debts.

    Feeling stressed by debt? Take steps to pay the smallest debt first then work on the others. Pay more than the minimum amount and when you get offered more credit cards say NO. Budget all your outgoings for the year, divide by 52 weeks and save this into a hidden bank account so the $$$ are there when needed.

    1. Start your day with motivation video or music.

    Buy an empty book with a beautiful cover that makes you smile and start a daily journal. Take 10 or 20 minutes in the morning to write how you are feeling, your intentions for the day and then 20 minutes in the evening how your day went.

  • Hyaluronic Acid the secret SERUM for Youthful skin

    If water or rather moisture to be specific is the magic wand for skin, then Hyaluronic Acid can be the best substitute for the same.

    The problems of aging start from the reduction of collagen fibers from the facial muscles that tend to dehydrate the skin and cause wrinkles thereby leading to aging skins. To battle these problems, the skin needs to be rehydrated very well so that the collagen fibers are regained with the help of moisturization of skin, and the wrinkles are reduced as a result of the same.

    In fact, today, from very early age itself, the signs of aging start showing up in the skin.

    This is because of the adverse effects of pollution, unhealthy food habits and hormonal disturbances that tell upon the skin texture of the facial area mainly. One has to be extra cautious about the lifestyle, and at the same time, there are various serums that one can use for getting back the glow of the skin.

    Hyaluronic Acid

    • Hyaluronic acid is very useful in revitalizing the skin and soothing the same from the itching and other extrinsic agents.
    • Hyaluronic acid is carbohydrates mixed in various proportions with water forming a gel-like substance that is often being used as serums.
    • Hyaluronic acid is used with CIT Collagen Induction Treatments giving amazing results

    Look for natural skincare products with Hyaluronic Acid as a key ingredient or a Hyaluronic Acid 1% Solution is what I use and recommend.

  • The salon treatment in your home!

    The salon treatment in your home!

    Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) have caused a sensation recently as anti-wrinkle active ingredients. They loosen the intercellular ‘glue’, allowing new cells to come through more rapidly and stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin. The visible effect is a skin which looks fresher and younger. AHA acids help remove the surface skin cells, improving skin texture and color.  Skin is left feeling plump and glowing as the new skin layers are revealed.

    Glycolic Acid it’s a form of AHA derived Sugar Cane is the natural source. If you want a smooth looking skin use a product that is made from sugar cane, this has the smallest molecule of all the glycolic acids

    The salon treatment in your home!

    Our facial skin is made up of three layers the epidermis (what we see), dermis (the middle layer) and subcutaneous layer (the third layer). Our skin, due to shedding of skin cells, replaces itself every 7 years. Your skin sheds every 28-45 days, rejuvenating the epidermis and allowing the next generation of skin cells to come forward. What happens is we get a BUILD UP of DEAD SKIN CELLS this will make our skin look tired, uneven tone & fine wrinkles may appear.  With young skin types they get blocked pores that forms pimples and scar tissue.

    We shed about 40 lbs of skin in a lifetime! The dead skin needs to be slough off to allow the new cells to the top. If you want a more youthful skin use a product that is rich in Glycolic or Alpha Hydroxy Acid. Naturally sourced Glycolic is made from sugar cane, fruit or milk. Sugarcane has the smallest molecule of all the Alpha Hydroxy Acids which gives it the best permeability of all the AHA’s.

    Despite its modern chemical name, the beneficial effects of AHA have been used for centuries. Cleopatra use to have her legendary milk baths and tales of woman using red wine baths to keep their skin youthful.

  • 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.

    Before Left / After Right on 60 year old woman.

    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.
