Home' INSTYLE Magazine : INSTYLE SPTOCT 2016 Contents Danné Montague King is a
globally recognized clinic
exclusive brand known for
its results well beyond the
skin's surface. e release of
their new EFA Ultra promotes hydrated and
healthy skin with immediately noticeable
results. Essential fatty acids assist with
cell function and nutritional needs, and
can help you maintain smooth, youthful
skin. 'Essential' means that the body
does not manufacture it, and it must be
obtained externally through either diet
e epidermis (or outer layer of skin) is
organised into layers with distinctive cell
types and lipid compositions. In the lower
layers of the epidermis, keratinocytes (a cell
that produces keratin) divide, separate,
and are metabolically active. Here and
during this process EFAs are incorporated into lipids in the plasma
membranes of keratinocytes and membranous organelles -- which
is where the outer skin will show the true health and activity of
these lipids and membranes.
e main function of the dermis (located between the epidermis
and muscle tissue) is to provide bodily and nutritional support
to the epidermis. Damage and destruction to dermal collagen is
involved in skin ageing -- the slower the cell damage, the slower
the ageing. EFAs may also ease photo ageing, which minimises
damage to collagen and can keep your skin looking young.
With a dosage of up to four tablets per day, EFAs assist to repair
all membranes in the body. If these membranes are not healthy,
your cells will be impaired and dysfunctional. ey help cells stay
fluid and supple, allowing nutrients to enter and waste to exit --
think of it as your skin's daily detox.
Standing up against environmental aggressors and known to
improve barrier function, assist with free water levels and helping
to waterproof skin, benefits are compounded with regular use.
ey also thicken up the extra cellular matrix making the skin
look bouncy and young again.
Not only are these benefits visible, they are also a powerful
anti-inflammatory. ere is not a disease on the planet that
does not involve inflammation, and all skin disorders have
Skin is no different to any other cell in our body in that it needs
complete nutrition. Nutrition plays an important role in skin health,
as macronutrients labour together to maintain the barrier functions
of the skin. Changes in nutritional status that alter skin structure
and function can directly affect the appearance of the skin.
Setting it apart, DMK EFA Ultra uses a
carbon dioxide extraction method, the most
effective and efficient way to extract valuable
constituent botanicals. Many supplements
containing evening primrose oil or sea
buckthorn seed oil use an extraction process
called cold pressing. is extraction method
causes too much pressure and friction for these tiny seeds to
handle, subsequently overheating them and destroying the valuable
nutrients in the oil. We want to preserve and keep all of the essential
fatty acids (EFA) and nutrients stable, which CO2 extraction allows.
DMK EFA Ultra is also a plant-based EFA, containing many
benefits when compared with fish based products. Fish contain
eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
because they eat algae that contain it. However, fish concentrate
also contains environmental contaminants like polychlorinated
biphenyls (PCBs), and the pesticides DDT and dieldrin.
Also, a lot of fish oil supplements are from farmed fish, and
many fish oils are oxidised or made with poor quality ingredients,
and may actually cause health problems instead of solving them.
So why not just go straight to the source?
DHA is the active element for reducing triglycerides (the main
constituents of body fat in humans), for bioavailability to the brain
and organs. Interestingly, all omega-3s have the ability to be made
from DHA and algae oil is more concentrated in omega-3s plus in
DHA. is means that it is better suited for human metabolism.
"I recommend EFAs for everyone unless there is a medical
reason they cannot take them. I specialise in skin revision, and
EFAs are an imperative part of any skin revision program," said
Danné Montague King.
"My whole philosophy when treating skin is giving the skin the
chemistry it recognises and responds positively to, keeping the
skin behaving like a young healthy skin."
Beyond the latest treatment or in-salon ritual -- by supplementing
your routine with EFA's you might just achieve skin more beautiful
than you ever imagined.
We can spend hours and countless dollars
chasing the best luxury skincare -- looking
for products that deliver on their promise
and locations that provide the best treatment
possible, but sometimes the little things can make
a big difference --meet DMK EFA's your passport
to great skin.
