It is so exciting getting stuck into your newly purchased DMK skincare routine! It can however, be quite frustrating when you get stuck at the first step – knowing which order your products go onto the skin! The skin is such a complex organ and so it’s not uncommon these days that your skincare routine will include applying several different products before you even get to your moisturiser.
Do not worry, we are here to decipher exactly what goes where. It can take a little practice to get it right, but if you follow these steps below it will be a cinch in no time.
Acu Klenz, Deep Pore Cleanser, Milk Cleanser, Mediterranean Pearls, Embioment Cleanser
It goes without saying, cleansing sits at number one. Morning and night, this is the first step before applying any other products. Remember to do a double cleanse if you are removing heavy make-up – working the cleanser into the skin for a good 30 seconds and then removing well with warm water and a gentle face washer or towel.
Eyetone, Fine Line, Eye Webb
Possibly one of the most forgotten of the skincare steps, but oh so important! It’s the area of face that the first signs of ageing occur so we must protect and nourish it to avoid those pesky crow’s feet. Your therapist will let you know which eye cream is best for you and when to apply, AM or PM.
Melanotech Drops, Pore Reduction Drops
Next to go on, drops! These penetrate deeply into the skin, allowing for serums to follow. Depending on your skin prescription, you will use just one of these drops or a combination of the two.
Beta Gel + Direct Delivery Vitamin C combo, Firmatrix or Embioment Serum
Depending on your skin concern, you will apply one of these serum choices straight over the top of your drops. An exception to this rule is Embioment Serum, which will be applied after spraying the skin with Embioment Spritz.
Seba E Oil or Herbal Pigment Oil
Being an oil formulation, these essential fatty acid combinations are designed to sit on top of the skin and and mimic the skin’s natural outer protective layer. These oils are also sprayed into the skin with Herb and Mineral Mist.
Revitosin, Revise A, Red Vein or Superbright
These super active products do enough on their own! Revitosin, Revise A (vitamin A) and Red Vein are applied as the first and only product after cleansing at night if these are part of your prescription.
Acu Moist, Acu Creme, Nite Firming, Biogen C, Betagen, Pro Amino, Crème Citrique or Transgensis
All DMK cremes are sprayed into the skin with either Herb and Mineral Mist, Acu Mist, Aminodine Spritz or Wetter than Water. Want to know why you need to spray your creme in?
8. Lock it in
Solar Damage, Hydroloc, Soleil Defence 15+ and 50+
As the name suggest, these products seal in your other products. DMK’s range of sunscreens contain 15+ SPF or 50+ SPF and are a critical step in everyone’s daily skincare routine. This is applied as your final product for the morning, over the top of your moisturiser. Solar Damage and Hydroloc increase hydration, hence why they are applied as the very last step in your routine other than when applying Superbright, Revitosin or Red Vein super treatment night time products.
