DMK at-home skincare | Working together with your salon professional

Great skin care begins at home, particularly when used in conjunction with regular in-salon facials. DMK understands the importance of this two-pronged strategy, having developed its signature enzyme facials in conjunction with a prescriptive DMK at-home skincare range. Best of all, you can experience it first hand with our special deal: purchase three enzyme facials, and receive a free set of DMK at-home skincare products (valued at $120) tailored to your particular skin type.

Understanding enzymes

Enzymes are natural living substances in the body to regulate health. They also work with some minerals in the body to create a system of antioxidants to eliminate toxic free radicals. Enzymes should strengthen the skin’s structural integrity to make cells thrive and live healthily. With Enzyme Therapy, skin can be firmer, clearer, softer, and more responsive to other skincare treatments.

DMK’s Enzyme Therapy is aimed at creating a healthier venue for cells to keep them thriving and capable of generating healthy skin. According to DMK founder, Danné Montague, this therapy is effective because it goes deeper than the skin’s surface and works with the natural systems of the body. This way, Enzyme Treatment rebuilds the skin’s core strength to make it more vibrant and healthier.

With Enzyme Therapy, your skin’s function can be optimised as the treatment stimulates lymphatic drainage, oxygenation, and circulation to strengthen and tighten skin as collagen production is enhanced. It also encourages reverse osmosis to flush through the cells and clear away the free radicals and toxins, and increase free water levels to make skin youthful and bouncy.

DMK at-home skincare

DMK Skin Revision Home Prescriptive products are created based on decades of research, knowledge and experience to produce precise formulations. Each product is designed to work with specific internal functions of the skin by matching the body’s chemistry to work effectively in tangent with DMK professional treatments.

The masques, cleansers and exfoliants continue to remove dead cell material and toxins while the nutrient rich oils, serums and spritzes work to rebuild the skin’s structures and functions.

Everyday applying Home Prescriptives helps to protect the skin from the sun, free radicals and other environmental factors while they assist to maintain and prolong the results achieved in DMK professional treatments.

Acne prone skin

Acne is a chronic inflammatory condition of the hair follicle and its sebaceous gland in which dead cells block the follicle and trap bacteria and oil in the pore; forming pustules, cysts, blackheads, and scars. There is no single cause for acne to develop. It can be a genetic condition or triggered by internal/ external factors such as hormonal imbalances, stress, medications, and climate conditions. Not surprisingly, acne is often accompanied by low self-esteem, anxiety and depression amongst teenagers and adults.

DMK’s Deep Pore Cleanser, Herb & Mineral Mist, Protect, ACU Creme work together to help flush out embedded impurities, naturally toning and detoxifying the skin, and gently regulate cell turnover to return your skin to balanced harmony.

Yumi Lash Lift | The 6 things you need to know

Yumi Lash Lift | The 6 things you need to know

Yumi lash lifts are a great alternative to lash extensions or growth serums. They differ to lash perms in that instead of the tight curl a rod/roller will give you – resulting in lashes that can sometimes look even shorter –  your lashes are “lifted” using curved silicone forms and keratin, giving a gradual curl that makes your lashes look really long. 

What is keratin?

Keratin is a strong, fibrous protein naturally found in your hair, skin and nails. These keratin proteins are in each individual hair shaft. And each protein is held together by disulphide and hydrogen bonds. Hair types (curly, straight, wavy, etc.) are determined by these bonds.

The Yumi lash lift method

It’s pretty simple on your part. You lie down and shut your eyes. Shields are taped underneath the eye, on top of the lower lashes, to protect them during the treatment. Silicone moulds are then placed on closed eyelids; the size depends on the level of lift and curl that you desire. Next, lashes are combed backwards onto the moulds (this sets the shape), and perming treatment is applied to the roots. After approximately 10 minutes, the treatment is removed and a neutraliser is applied. A tint is applied to deepen colour and lashes are released from the mould with a condition serum, and gently combed loose. 

Does it hurt?

There’s no pain or discomfort beyond the normal someone’s-doing-something-in-my-eye-region. Expect your appointment to last about 1.5 hours – a little longer than a lash perm.

After your Yumi lash lift

It’s important not to get your lashes wet for 48 hours. That means keeping them dry while showering, taking your makeup off or crying with joy at how gorgeous your lashes are.

How long does it last? 

A Yumi keratin lash lift can last up to 12 weeks, so you should wait at least eight weeks between treatments.

How much does a Yumi lash lift cost?

$130, and for a limited time book a friend in and they get their lash lift half price! Just head to our website and see the results for yourself.
