Mary White just turned 27 and realised it might be time to start looking after her skin. She decided she would start with the enzyme treatment that’s flooding Instagram at the moment, to see if all the hype is worth it. Here’s what she had to say.
This isn’t a sponsored post but rather a PSA to all of the women out there who are suffering their ‘skin life crisis’ like I am. For me it kicked in at 27 and to be honest I’d never been overly worried about ageing or my skin until now. One day I just woke up to realise I’m not as fresh-faced as a 20-year-old anymore.
So I wanted to do something about it.
When one of my girlfriends – who’s also a pharmacist and skincare fiend – told me about a standing booking she has for an enzyme treatment at Hud Skin + Body in Melbourne’s St Kilda, I couldn’t have fumbled any quicker for my phone to book an appointment. After all, my friend is constantly glowing, hardly wears any makeup, and her skin is looking the best it ever has.
I was curious to see if this treatment – the one I keep seeing plastered all over my Instagram feed – was worth it.
From the moment I walked in to Hud I was blown away – I mean, the place is the Disneyland of beauty. I even sat down with my skin therapist Lisa who drew a diagram and spoke through each step of the treatment and what it was actually going to do, which was an extremely refreshing experience.
In case you haven’t heard about it, the main purpose of the DMK enzyme treatment is to detoxify all the nasties out of your skin using your own lymphatic system. It’s a non-invasive treatment and works to remove dead protein cells from the surface of the skin without stripping it back.
Traditionally cosmetic style facials work topically on the surface of the skin however the DMK enzyme treatment works with the internal structures and functions of the skin, so that we’re really getting to the core of any problems. Essentially it flushes out the build-up of toxins and floods our cells with fresh new blood and oxygen.
