  • 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 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.

     

    Ciao for now

  • 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.
