Many of us take it for granted that our skin is the body’s largest organ.
In Ireland, 54% of the population is affected by some type of skin disease every year, and up to 33% of people have a condition that requires medical care.
In addition to the physical distress a skin condition can cause, they can also affect you mentally, by impacting your confidence and self-esteem.
Thankfully, science and medical advances have delivered a range of effective treatments for all types of skin problems including rosacea, acne, psoriasis and eczema, among others.
I know from personal experience just how stressful skin conditions can be.
After my second pregnancy, I experienced a flare up of acne that was hard to shift.
There was one product however in particular that changed everything – DMK Skincare – and today, this product is one I won’t hesitate to recommend!
What is DMK?
The DMK Skincare range was founded by Danné Montague-King in the 1970s.
DMK was born from Danné’s own struggle with acne as a teen where he most of his time hiding away in a corner, ashamed of how he looked.
He sought the experience and advice of many dermatologists, but when he didn’t get the results he longed for, he took matters into his own hands, and thankfully developing a range of effective treatments that have been helping people deal with skin issues for more than 50 years.
Considered an industry pioneer, Danné is now almost 80 years old – though you would never know it, with a fresh face and youthful radiance that would be the envy of most 50-year-olds!
Common Skin Conditions
Skin conditions can be immensely irritation, sometimes very painful and can dramatically affect self confidence.
They are also more common than you think.
Acne impacts around 85% of the population at some point in their life. Though it is most common in teens, it can strike at any time in life – like my own experience after pregnancy. Acne causes small red bumps and cysts, as well as surrounding redness. DMK founder Danné says acne can be “cured” with special formulas that remove pre-deposited fats from follicles and destroy the causative P.acnes bacteria, while at the same time restoring stability and minimising inflammation.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that causes acne-like pimples on the face alongside hot, red, flushing skin on the cheeks. DMK offers a range of treatments to assist with Rosacea which are based on treating the Demodex Mite that Danné says is the main cause of this skin condition. Talk to us about DMK products that are specially formulated with enzymes, AHAs and alkaline to treat Rosacea.
Eczema leaves the skin with severe dry, red patches and it can be painful, itchy and even bleed in more extreme cases. Genetics can play a role in eczema, while the chemicals in certain perfumes, skin creams and household products can make it worse. DMK’s Reactive Skin range is ideal for supporting sensitive skin, and the Contraderm formula will help soothe itching and irritation.
Psoriasis causes red, flaky, crusty patches of skin that is covered with silver scales. It is most common around the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back. Betagen is one of the best soothers for inflamed skin from psoriasis, with antioxidants that help the skin’s healing process. DMK’s Betagen is an enzyme therapy that quicky soothes inflamed skin, and is packed with antioxidants that help with the skin’s healing process.
How to choose the right DMK skincare product for your skin
DMK offers a wide range of scientifically formulated products to help treat these, and other skin conditions.
It is important to remember however, that like Danné, each person must follow their own skin care journey to find what works for them. “Quick fix solutions” tend to be the product purely of marketing spin – while the DMK approach is to Remove, Rebuild, Protect and Maintain skin by matching your unique biochemistry with the right skin therapy.
With a measured and consistent approach to your skin care, you can enjoy a noticeable difference over time.
