Here at Mamamia we are doing a series of 24 hours with… amazing and inspiring women.
Today’s amazing woman is Deanne Davies. As the owner of The Clear Skin Clinic in Double Bay, Dee says her favourite part about work is changing people’s lives.
She explains that it’s about removing all the smoke and mirrors from what it takes to achieve the best skin you can. Sometimes that is about setting realistic expectations and not promising people miracles.
When asked about her family she said they are divine.
“They are all beach babes, even my husband. They all surf. I have a daughter Maddie who is 21 and my son Pama is 18. I went back to work three weeks after one child and six week after the other, so to work and look after my husband and be a mother and work 45 plus hours a week, you have to be incredibly organised.”
Just as an FYI, you should know that this post is sponsored by Dove. But all opinions expressed by the author are 100 per cent authentic and written in their own words.
So here is how Deanne makes it through 24 hours:
An early start
I get up at around 4:30 to get prepared for the day. At 5:30 I duck down to my local gym where I do interval training. It is really important to me that I make that investment into my fitness first thing in the morning or the opportunity would vanish. Once I get home, its pretty much a case of showering and heading out the door.
I start my day every day with a green juice and my husband makes the best coffee. No need to go out when you have the best at home. I always take a packed lunch, so on Mondays (my day off) I spend half of it cooking, so in the morning I have a system that quickly puts all the salad in a container and other yummy things I’ve prepared and its out the door.
A day at work
I own a place called The Clear Skin Clinic in Double Bay. It’s a very busy clinic. Not many people in my line of work treat skin the way I do. I am an acne clinic, so my week is full of clients that are stressed and usually in a bad mindset. My initial appointments begin with detailing all the products they use on their skin. It shows the amount of products people have and the amount of money they spend on products that clearly aren’t working. I tend to take my clients back to basics; I guess it is my way of removing the superficial and mystical elements from what it takes to have a great skin.
It’s actually really simple. I spend a lot of time listening to people’s personal life stories too. I think being able to blurt out stuff that is on your mind is part of the skin-clearing process.
