    Cleanse – Rinse – Nourish – Repeat. …….. Make love to your skin!!

    A simple skincare routine AM & PM the key is making the time, taking the time, and doing it!!

    What is the most important AM or PM routine?? BOTH…….

    The AM routine, thru the night the skin has produced oils and we perspire (sweat) if going thru menopause (men – o – pause). Also, it is nice to refresh the skin in the AM, apply a Vitamin C serum to brighten, hydrate and firm the skin and always protect the skin with sunscreen for the day.

    The PM routine, after the days build-up of oil forming bacteria, dust, pollution and remove the make-up. This is the time to MAKE LOVE TO YOUR SKIN!  Your skin will thank you for taking the time to cleanser, hydrate and nourish at the end of the day.

    AM Routine:

    • Foaming Cleanser – I pump rinse
    • Hydrating Mist
    • Vitamin C Serum
    • Day cream
    • Sun protection

    Remember to start your skincare routine from the chest up to the neck and face and back of neck for AM & PM Routine.

    PM Routine: Make love to your skin

    • Foaming Cleanse – double cleanse
    • Hydrating Mist
    • Vitamin AB Night Serum
    • Eye Cream
    • Night Cream

    Being in the professional beauty arena for 40 + years, I have discovered that women get to an age when they look in the mirror and see the skin has aged. YOU CAN RENEW the skin!!

    About every 30+ days the top layer of the skin dies and we get a build-up of dead skin cells. Cleansing and double cleansing with a Lactic Acid based product will assist in buffing away the dead skin cells.

    Weekly home facial treatments and use the AHA/BHA Exfoliator followed by the French Green Clay mask. In the morning your skin will be RENEWED.

    We get back to the Cleanse – Rinse – Nourish – Repeat daily and weekly home facials.

    At the young age of 62, I get compliments on how great my skin is. My answer is “I make love to my skin every day” and I have been doing this since I was 13 years old.

    It is time to “make love to your skin” and YOU deserve to have beautiful glowing skin.

  • Botanical Exfoliator With AHA & BHA 100ml | Door of Youth Exfoliate to renew the skin…..

    Facial Exfoliation: What Is It?

    Although most people understand the importance of keeping skin clean, for many, the concept of facial exfoliation is a foreign one. While cleansing your skin on a daily basis may rid the skin of dirt and oil, it doesn’t necessarily act as a facial rejuvenator or help unclog pores the way exfoliation does.

    Here are 10 Benefits of Exfoliation

    1. Exfoliation creates a radiant, glowing complexion. Yes, cleansing can help rid the skin of dirt and oil, but exfoliation is what makes skin really gleam with health.
    2. Exfoliation helps moisturizer work more effectively. Moisturizer on skin that isn’t exfoliated really just sits on the surface. If you want the moisturizer to really sink in, exfoliating the skin is the best way to do it.
    3. Exfoliation prepares the skin for make-up. By helping to even out skin texture, exfoliation helps make-up go on as smoothly as possible.
    4.  Exfoliation helps unclog poresand draws out impurities. Cleansers can only go just so deep in terms of getting out gunk, but exfoliators really get in there to decongest pores.
    5. Exfoliation is anti-aging. Exfoliation revitalizes skin, promoting ageless beauty.
    6. Exfoliation provides an instant glow. If you’ve never exfoliated your skin before, you’ll be amazed at how quickly it improves the look of your skin. By unclogging pores, exfoliation provides an instant glow.
    7. Exfoliation inspires rejuvenated skin. Do an exfoliation “before and after” of your skin and we think you’ll find that the “after” shows your skin is seriously revitalized!
    8. Exfoliation helps smooth the skin. You know how rocks are polished to a smooth surface to use in jewellery? That’s kind of how skin exfoliation works in terms of smoothing the skin.
    9. Exfoliation is great for the skin on your body. Just as facial exfoliation helps prepare the skin for make-up or moisturizer, exfoliation for the skin on your body helps prepare it for moisturizing as well.
    10. Exfoliation helps to prepare the skin for self-tanner. If you’ve ever tried to self-tan without exfoliating first, you probably know that you’ll end up with giant streaks instead of a nice, even tan. The next time you decide to self-tan, prepare your skin by exfoliating really well! (And whatever you do, you want to avoid tanning beds, which only can increase your risk of skin cancer and lead to premature aging!)

    Time to try Door of Youth – Botanical Exfoliator with AHA & BHA 100ml Retails at $42.95 https://doorofyouth.com/product/botanical-exfoliator-with-aha-bha-100ml/

    The double exfoliating action of the Botanical Exfoliator is achieved through AHA and BHA helping to loosen the bonds between dead epidermal cells which are then sloughed away by the Sandalwood and Tea Tree Powder granules. Antioxidant and soothing properties help to protect newly revealed cells leaving the skin with a smooth, refreshed texture and appearance.

    After cleansing pat skin dry and massage a small amount of Exfoliator over the entire face in gentle circular motions avoiding the lips and eye area. Can be left on the skin for a minute after massaging in to allow the AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acids) to continue exfoliating. Use a dampened soft cloth or rinse with tepid to cool water to remove all traces of exfoliating granules and until tingling sensations can no longer be felt. The absorption of active ingredients will be enhanced once dead skin cells are removed. Use once a week or as needed.

    *Avoid direct sunlight for minimum 6 hours after use. It is common to experience a tingling sensation and mild flushed appearance after use. Remove product if you experience any discomfort. Do not apply to broken skin.

  • Menopause causes many changes to your skin.

    IPL Skin Rejuvenation | Pro-age Skin Care | Door of YouthMenopause causes many changes to your skin. Your body stops making as much collagen. You lose some fat under your skin and your skin’s elasticity drops. That, combined with dryness caused by hormonal changes, can cause sagging especially around the neck, jawline, and cheeks and fine lines and wrinkles.

    1. During menopause, lower levels of estrogen have a big impact on your skin. Less estrogen makes you prone to thinning, sagging, and wrinkling.
    2. Your body stops making as much collagen. You lose some fat under your skin and your skin’s elasticity drops. That, combined with dryness caused by hormonal changes, can cause sagging especially around the neck, jawline, and cheeks and fine lines and wrinkles.
    3. Beauty routine AM & PM is an important skin care step especially as you age.

    Vitamin C and AB Night serum from Door of Youth Skincare

    Vitamin C and AB Serum applied together is a laying of serums for a non – stop vitamin infusion.  Vitamin C hydrates, brightens, and tones, A and B group vitamins get to work while you sleep for an overall perfected complexion by morning. Potent actives improve skin texture and tone while peptide complexes repair skin’s deeper layers to restore a youthful appearance.

    After menopause, your skin gets drier because oil glands aren’t as active. Try to give skin more moisture with a heavier cream. Skip long, hot showers and put on moisturizer while your skin is still damp. That helps boost hydration.

    You Still Need SPF

    Even though skin cancer and wrinkling are caused by the amount of sun you got in your 20s, 30s, and 40s, you still need to protect your skin. Why? Skin may have less natural protection than when you were younger. So, look for a broad-spectrum SPF of 30 or higher, and wear it every day. I personally wear a sun shirt when walking and gardening from

    Minimize Wrinkled Skin

    You get wrinkles from too much sun damage over the years, as well as the hormonal changes of menopause. As your hormone levels decrease with age, that can change your skin quality and make wrinkles worse.  Wrinkles may be more obvious when your skin is dry, especially as you age. Use moisturizer on your face, jawline and neck every day, and look for skin care products designed to help fight fine lines and sagging and that lead to a brighter appearance overall. Day Cream with Marine Collagen from Door of Youth and priced at $39.95 great value.

    Day Cream

    Enriched with the soothing and hydrating properties of Aloe Vera and the restorative properties of Marine Collage, this moisturiser soothes, softens, helps repair the skin, resulting in a reduction of wrinkles and a smoother appearance.

    Hit the Spots

    Age spots on the face, hands, and chest can look more obvious around menopause. Help prevent them by using sunscreen every day. Already got spots? Fade them with exfoliating products that shed dead skin cells, which can be dull and flaky. Skin-lightening products can help fade spots. Toners can also help even out skin color.

    Botanical Exfoliator with AHA & BHA 100ml

    The double exfoliating action of the Botanical Exfoliator is achieved through AHA and BHA helping to loosen the bonds between dead epidermal cells which are then sloughed away by the Sandalwood and Tea Tree Powder granules.

    Help Your Hands

    The backs of your hands can lose moisture, collagen, and fat during menopause. That can make veins more obvious and skin more wrinkled. Plus, your skin can look see-through and bony. To reduce the look of wrinkles, use moisturizer often on your hands. Protect them from the sun.  And wear gloves when doing house or yard work.

    Eat Your Antioxidants

    Collagen gives your skin its youthful plumpness and keeps your skin tight. As your estrogen levels drop, so does the collagen in your skin. Eating foods with antioxidants may help make your skin stronger from the inside out. Look for brightly coloured fruits and vegetables (they get their color from these healthy compounds) and try to eat every color of the spectrum.

    Morlife have a great collagen powder that I have used for many years, mix with your smoothy or sprinkle over porridge or cereal in the morning.

    Stock Up on Soy

    Soy is rich in isoflavones, plant-based compounds that seem to act like estrogen in the body. Isoflavones may help improve age-related changes like thinning skin. Experts believe about 50 mg of isoflavones that’s like 3 ounces of tempeh or a half cup of miso a day can help menopausal women in other ways, too.

    Look for Balance

    Stress can make your skin drier and more sensitive. It can also trigger conditions like psoriasis. And if you’re stressed out, you might even forget your skin care routine. Try yoga, meditation, and other stress-reduction techniques to help you relax.

    Work It Out

    Exercise does more than just tone your muscles. It helps skin in two ways. First, it relieves stress. Exercise also boosts circulation, which begins to slow with age. The extra oxygen and blood flow can help your skin look brighter and healthier.

    Beauty Sleep

    Getting enough sleep helps your skin look fresh. Sleep can help prevent dark circles under your eyes, and it also gives the rest of your body a chance to recharge. Lack of sleep can change your hormone levels and metabolism in many of the same ways that aging does. One hour before bed turn off the laptop, mobile phone, have a cup of herbal tea, the warm will assist with sleeping. Then sleep for a solid 7 to 9 hours of shut eye every night.

  • Now living in the country

    Country Lifestyle

    Founder of Door of Youth Skincare, Debbie Majella after 40 years on the Gold Coast, has left the skyline of high-rise buildings for the black velvet sky with stars that shine like diamonds in the country.

    Being a country lady at heart born in Toowoomba, she new it was time to move to a simple life in the country. Smell the fresh air, no traffic lights, be part of a small community about 3 hours from the Gold Coast.

    “Having an online skincare business, we can take the online shop to any part of Australia. Being an Australian owned and made natural organic skincare, it was time for me to return to the beauty of the country. I have been visiting the town of Stanthorpe for 15 + years so it was an area that was calling me.

    The Gold Coast has lost its sparkle for me and searching online for land I discovered a lovely place called Glen Aplin, 10.8 kilometres from Stanthorpe. In February 2021 I drove to the land at Glen Aplin and was a landowner by the end of that week.

    I choose land over an established house and land as I wanted to move a ‘country cottage’ to the land. There are homes that are on stumps and get be moved. I discovered a 1950 country cottage from David Wright Removalist and loved the house from the day I saw it online.

    It has been a challenging journey getting all in order from soil test, survey of the land, fence boundaries, council approvals, plumbers for sewerage, water tanks, power poles and much more.

    The best part has been travelling out to Glen Aplin, meeting country folk and forming relationships that will be everlasting. There is a different vibration to country folk and city slickers.”

    The house only needs minor reno’s, all going to plan will be living in the house end of November 2021.

    From our door to your door we send Door of Youth Skincare. Our warehouse is on the land, the online store is open 24/7, all our skincare products are under $50 and our postage is a flat $9.50 Australia wide.

  • Pro-age Skin Care | Door of Youth Turn back the clock on your décolletage

    The skin on your neck and chest (décolletage) is one of the first areas to show signs of ageing. Ekk!

    A Woman cleansers, tones and nourishes their face, but few do the neck and chest area. If you have neglected this area, it will start to show signs of ageing.

    The good news is it is not too late to start nourishing this area and there is serums that target hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and wrinkles, to regain a more youthful looking décolletage!

    The skin on the décolletage is different to the skin on your face. This area has no hair follicles, a few oil glands and much thinner.

    The collagen in our skin starts to break down, this leads to fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity, resulting in sagging skin. The skin thins, making it more fragile and slower to heal. We also see the signs of photoageing, brown spots, pigmentation and red/broken capillaries.

    What to do?

    AM: Cleanser from décolletage up, neck and face (the boobies too and rinse with cold water to perk them up).

    Then apply Vitamin C Serum then your day cream & sunscreen on the décolletage, as we don’t apply foundation all over this area. I recommend Modere Sunscreen all over the face/ neck/ décolletage area. Here is link to Modere spend over $50 and save $10.

    PM: Cleanse skin, then apply Vitamin C serum, Vitamin AB night serum, serums can be layered onto the skin, if skin is on the oily side, stop there. Dry or mature skin add a night oil or cream. I am a believer in oils rich in jojoba oil at night.

    Avoid using harsh, active products on the décolletage area, use moisturiser rich in collagen, antioxidants such as vitamin E, C or B3 to protect against free radicals from sun and pollution.

    If your skin has severe damage, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) & or Skin Needling can repair and restore the skin to a more even tone.

    It only take a few extra minutes each day to Stay Youthful. Lean towards natural organic skincare so you are feeding the skin!

    Time for some 1 to 1 skin pampering? Skin looking dull? Book a Microdermabrasion with our Skin Specialist! 

    Microdermabrasion was introduced into the beauty services 1990’s. 

    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 exfoliate or scrub the skin, these product just skim the surface.

    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 3 is recommend over 3 weeks and then maintenance is 1 every 6 weeks

    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.

    Results from Peel and Microdermabrasion

    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 yrs. 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 without 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
