    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/

    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.

  • 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.

  • Rose Quartz for youthful glowing skin!

    Egyptians believed rose quartz had anti-aging properties. It is thought that the “Goddess Isis” would gather tumbled stones of rose quartz by the Nile River where she used these as facial massage stones to keep the complexion clear and prevent wrinkles.

    Rose Quartz is commonly referred to as the “Love Stone” for its strong vibrations of unconditional love, tenderness, joy warmth and healing. This beautiful pink crystal has a powerful energy that resonates within both the heart chakra and the higher heart chakra the area related to compassion.

    Rose quartz is packed full of minerals, including silicium, magnesium, iron, sodium, and oxygen. It has an amazing ability to reduce inflammation, supports the renewal of skin cells plus heals and rejuvenates. Rose quartz is also good for the heart and circulation, bringing oxygen to skin which improves tone, lustre and glow.

    Rose Quartz is the energy healer, heart opener, and skin refiner- there is almost no limit to its many gifts. Faithful users agree that incorporating Rose Quartz into your regular skin care routine can make your skin feel brighter, tighter and more beautiful while also enhancing your confidence and attracting more love into your life.

    The coolness and weight of rose quartz helps with anxiety, relieve sinus discomfort, reduces the look of puffiness and fine lines. Rose Quartz remains cold while in contact with the skin and this helps to tighten the skin. Also, a good use for meditation, the rose quartz helps calm the soul and brings about deep relaxation and tranquillity.
    Using one of these regularly will soon leave your face feeling firmer, appearing smoother and clearer, while also working wonders for under-eye puffiness and dark circles.

    Improve circulation

    Rose Quartz is connected to your heart, which is the primary organ responsible for our circulatory system. By using the gemstone in your skin care rituals, you stimulate the heart chakra, thereby enhancing circulation and delivering more oxygen to the skin. Whether you apply a rose quartz full mask, eye mask, or use a facial roller, the experience of increased blood flow to the surface of your skin is purely invigorating.

    Reduce inflammation

    When our sinuses act up, we may notice increased inflammation around our nose and cheeks. The naturally cool characteristics of Rose Quartz can help to soothe the sinuses, alleviating congestion and reducing swelling and puffiness. A massage with a rose quartz roller can also encourage lymphatic drainage, which will clear your skin of other impurities and toxins. For added relaxation and enhanced effects, place your Rose Quartz mask, eye mask or gemstone roller in the refrigerator for 1 minute prior to use.

    Release stress

    Stress wreaks havoc on our skin. When our energy field is out of alignment due to stress, you can physically see it on our face. As our body responds to the stress signals, it fails to function properly in other areas that show up in our skin. We may retain water and skin appear puffy. We may reduce our production of collagen and elastin proteins, which are essential to skin health.

    Using Rose Quartz during meditation or decorating your home with the stone can help to reduce your stress levels. The energy and colour of the stone induce feelings of calmness, acceptance, and love. We recommend placing the crystal on your heart and repeating the mantra “I am love” during your mediation. This will help you to be kinder to yourself and others during times of stress and release negative emotions that can affect how we look and feel.

    Enhance Skin Care Products

    Rose Quartz face mask & rollers are wonderful tools that can be used in conjunction with skin care products to enhance their effectiveness.

    How to use: Eye Mask

    After using your serum of choice use the crystal roller then lay the eye mask over the skin while feeling tension dissolve, leave on for 15 minutes or as long as you wish. Turn the mask upside down and lay over the mouth and jaw area to soothe lines and tension around these areas.

    How to use: Full Face Mask

    After using your serum of choice or no serum, lay the cool mask over the skin while feeling tension dissolve, leave on for 15 minutes or as long as you wish.

    The coolness and weight of rose quartz helps relieve sinus discomfort and reduces the look of puffiness and fine lines Quartz remains cold while in contact with the skin and this helps to tighten the skin. Also, a good use for meditation, the quartz helps calm the soul and brings about deep relaxation and tranquillity.
    Using one of these regularly will soon leave your face feeling firmer, appearing smoother and clearer, while also working wonders for under-eye puffiness and dark circles.

    Benefits:

    • Soothes relaxes facial muscles and skin
    • Relieves congestion and reduces the look of puffiness
    • Promotes improved blood circulation and skin tone
    • Improves visible elasticity of the skin
    • Supports lymphatic system
    • Reduces the look of puffiness and wrinkles
    • Reduces dark under eye circles
    • Promotes toxin elimination

    The stone is naturally cool to the touch. However, putting the mask in the fridge before use will make it an extra nice treat, feel the tensions fall away, lines soften and soul rejuvenated.

    How to care for your Rose Quartz Mask:

    These are delicate, always handle with care. Gently blot dry with a soft cloth or hand rinse with water and gentle soap after each use. Pat dry with a towel and lay flat to dry completely on a dry towel.

    Note:
    Stone size and colour may vary due to handmade nature. Small imperfections are common in natural stone. Thread colours can vary from white to shades of pink.

    The benefits of micro needling at home

    Although at-home micro needling won’t nab you quite the same results  as in salon professional treatment (the needles are both shorter and duller), it can still offer benefits. “At-home rollers don’t pierce your skin as deeply as the medical-grade devices, but they can be used to enhance the penetration of products—be it hydrating, brightening, or rejuvenating active, as it creates these open channels.”

    Home mirco needling can be done up to 3 times a week, doing home needling then applying serums will penetrate 50% deeper.

    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

  • Eye Lift | Pro-age Skin Care Collections | Door of Youth | High Quality Skincare I had an Eye Lift

    As a Woman do you look in the mirror and wish you looked younger and realise my skin has been neglected over the years?

    Many Women do this, we need to always see our beauty.

    With 38 years in the beauty profession as a skin specialist, I was seeing my eye lids skin droopy making me look tired and older then my 59 years of age.

    I have always looked after my skin with Microdermabrasion, Skin Needling and IPL Skin rejuvenation over the past 10 years. With my 60th Birthday only 6 months away, it was time to look at eye surgery.

    Eyelid surgery (also called an eye lift or blepharoplasty), reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. This surgery is usually done for cosmetic reasons. It’s also an effective way to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids get in the way of their vision

    hooded or droopy eye is one that is set in a way that the natural crease is not readily seen. This eyeshade typically features a layer of skin that drops over the crease causing the lid to appear small. If you apply makeup the wrong way, it can make your eyelids appear even smaller.

    There are many different possible causes of droopy eyelids, ranging from natural causes to more serious conditions. The levator muscle is responsible for lifting the eyelid. As you age, that muscle can stretch and, as a result, cause the eyelid to fall.

    So it was time to research what was available, the procedure and downtime.

    This is when I discovered Pelleve.

    What is Pelleve?

    Radiofrequency Technology “Say goodbye to wrinkles without surgery”. The Pelleve treatment is a comfortable skin tightening treatment that takes less than an hour.

    Pelleve is not a laser. Pelleve uses radio frequency to delivery non-surgical skin tightening treatments and minor surgical procedures. Each Pelleve handpiece is unique and fitted to conduct non-surgical or minor surgical treatments.

    Pelleve – Surgical

    For minor surgical procedures, the Pelleve system provides high-frequency radio waves into soft tissues for the purpose of making a very fine and precise surgical incisions. It’s surgery with NO scalpel for the gentle removal of moles, warts, skin tags, facial vessels and dropping eyelids or unwanted bags under your eyes. A topical or local anaesthesia is often used and the procedure may take only minutes and will be performed in the doctor’s surgery. The results are excellent and consistent and there will be immediate improvement in your appearance with little or no bruising or scarring.

    How does the Pelleve RF surgery differ from traditional surgery?

    Because RF uses radio waves instead of scalpel, very fine, precise incisions can be made. Only the tissue cells adjacent to the wire electrode are affected, and are vaporised instead of being cut through with manual pressure, as with a scalpel. Scalpel and scissors crush tissue, whereas radio waves can coagulate blood vessels as they make fine cuts, resulting in minimal bleeding, bruising and swelling.

    Debbie’s Eye Lift from first visit.

    I picked up the phone and made the appointment to see Dr ***** for my EYE LIFT surgery. Wow was I really going to do this?? Yes I am!

    The day came Monday 27th May for my visit and I was nervous and also saying to myself “Am I worthy of this” will share more about self-love in a blog. Also it was the day after the reading of my late mothers will and wasn’t feeling that great.

    Dr ***** was welcoming, he explained the procedure, penciled the area were the skin would be removed, showed me in a mirror by lifting up the eye lid and WOW I will look so different.

    I then spoke with the Admin Lady, in more detail of how long the procedure, viewed some before and after picture and that was it booked in Wednesday June 26th at 9.30am.

    The day arrived and Debbie C lady friend picked me up as no driving a car after procedure. I have to say was nervous and did some EFT (emotional freedom tapping) before and during the procedure.

    This is the process:

    • Before pictures taken
    • Lay on bed relaxing with ice pack on eyes for 10/15 minutes (head freeze)
    • Dr **** came in pencils the area were skin to be removed and local anaesthesia
    • Then the procedure started

    I felt nothing, I could smell a little of the burn of the skin, then the internal stitches done on left eye. The same procedure on right eye, WOLLAH it was all over. The lovely nurse who held my hand throughout the procedure, placed the dressing on my eyes, then more ice pack for 10 mins. The whole procedure from start to end was 90 minutes.

    I left the surgery with my sun glasses on and bought some yummy cakes to have with our coffee when I got home. Debbie C arrived to take me home and we enjoyed our cakes and coffee.

    The key to speedy recovery is ICE packing the eye every hour for 10 minutes and that is what I did. The next day I drove myself to the doctor’s surgery to have the dressings removed and antiseptic cream applied. I keep the ice packs up every couple of hours and antiseptic cream. The hardest thing was sleeping on my back for 3 days!

    Day 2: I was at the Door of Youth Skin Clinic attending to my clients. My eye were swollen, yet very impressed with how they were feeling and looking.

    Day 3: I had the day at home, ice packing regularly and antiseptic cream.

    Day 4: I was at the Door of Youth Skin Clinic attending to clients and out doing the normal things.

    Day 5: Sunday I had a relaxing day at home, reading magazines, listening to music just chilling.

    Day 6: I had a Led Light treatment to assist with the healing, started to use cream for bruising under the eyes, which was gone in 24 hours.

    Day 7: Went out for dinner and looking good!

    Day 8: Normal working day at Door of Youth Skin Clinic

    Day 9: One week check-up with Dr ***** and he was very happy with the results. The staff amazed with the no bruising and AMAZING results in opening my eyes. Today I now start using the scar cream and will for 1 to 2 weeks.

    Day 12: Drove to Brisbane and no issues with eyes, thought they may have felt tired after the drive.

    Day 13: I am so happy with the results, sleeping on my side as normal, wore a little makeup on the weekend. Eyes are healing very well with some small bruising on right eyelid.

    In 6 week’s time I will see Dr ****, he said this is when I will see the TRUE results.

    Here are some pictures of the adventure.
