  • 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.


    • 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


    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!

  • Benefits of Microdermabrasion

    Microdermabrasion introduced into the beauty services 1990’s.

    Having been in the beauty profession for 35 years I am always amazed at the benefits of a micro. Today I was AMAZED at the RESULTS seen on my own skin. Dee a beauty therapist that use to work at my anti aging clinic has pampered me with micro, green clay mask, relaxing hand, arm & shoulder massage

    Here is some amazing information on the benefits of Microdermbraion.

    Visit my Beauty Studio at Varsity Lakes (Gold Coast) Micro are only $55 for 45 minutes with a relaxing hand, arm & shoulder massage.

    Regeneration confirmed

    In 2000 Dr Mark Rubin & Dr Steven Greenbaum statement. 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 60’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.

    If you are on the Gold Coast call in to Door of Youth Skin Clinic at Hope Island. Contact Debbie on  0404 528 923.


  • The Secret to Youthful skin.

    GLYCOLIC derived from SUGARCANE The Secret to Youthful skin.

    We are told sugar is not good for us internally so let’s slap it on our skin as sugarcane is a natural glycolic acid and the key ingredient in anti-aging skincare.

    As we age our skin starts to look dull, firmness disappears and the youthful glow is diminishing.

    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. We shed about 18 kilogram of skin in a lifetime!

    We get a buildup of dead skin cells, this makes our skin look tired, uneven tone, pigmentation and fine wrinkles may appear.  With younger skin types they get blocked pores that forms pimples and then scar tissue.

    Glycolic Acids 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. Glycolic acids help remove the surface skin cells, improving skin texture and colour. Skin is left feeling plump and glowing as the new skin layers are revealed.

    When buying a Glycolic skincare product check the levels of active ingredient. If the percentage of glycolic is not on the label don’t waste your money. For ultimate results glycolic 5% in cleanser and 10+% in serums.

  • Skin Needling

    Skin needling is far less damaging to the skin than hard laser resurfacing treatments. The skin is mildly injured and bleeds during the process of the bleeding triggers the natural wound healing response the release of platelets which “induce the release of growth factors leading to the production of new COLLAGEN and Healthy ELASTIN. There is NO permanent damage to the skin and the majority of clients heal well enough to return to work the next day.

    Skin needling is good for all skin types and currently the only way to reverse aging. The roller can be applied directly under the eye and about for an amazing eye lift. Where Laser or IPL skin rejuvenation treatment cannot be directly under or above the eye.

    Book your complimentary consultation to discuss the benefits for your skin.
