Posts in Chemical Peel

I know it has been quite a while since I last updated you on my own progress at DMK. Ok, so 2 months, but it has been for good reason. Well, an average reason. You see, I didn’t want to spoil the exciting final results by showing you continuous progress photos. But don’t worry, I have been taking them and all will be revealed when I finish up my treatments in a couple of weeks.

This post is slightly different though because over the past 2 weeks I have been undergoing a special treatment just for my eyes. Before I get into it I do have to say that since starting my DMK skincare regiment, the dark circles have reduced dramatically, but mine were quite severe to start with so they needed some extra firepower to really make a difference.

Cosmetic enhancement is one of my most favourite topics. I could talk about it, and learn about it for that matter, all day. I never get tired of it, but the more talking and learning I do, the more questions I have. While the subject of artificial enhancement is no longer taboo, there is still a lot we don’t know about the industry.

One of my goals in creating The Plastic Diaries was to finally get some answers to those big questions I had rolling around my head. Now that I have truly started on the path to knowledge, it seems my list of questions will never end. However, I have finally found an organisation that seems to be a consumers best friend when it comes to deciding to go ahead with a treatment or procedure. That organisation is the Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia, otherwise known as CPSA. Continue Reading

I am really excited to share with you this post today. While aging does enough damage to ones looks, cancer does a whole lot more. As most of you know, my mother has been sick with cancer for quite some time now, and it has definitely taken its toll on her appearance.

My mother was one of those women who never did anything to look after their skin. Nothing. Zip. Zilch. Despite that, she had almost perfect skin even up until her late 40s, and she still has pretty good skin in retrospect to never looking after it, but not too long ago aging hit her like a freight train. All those years of never wearing sunblock manifested with patchy skin tone & large pigmentation spots; the skin that once sat high on her face headed south; and the soft, bright skin became scaly and dull. Add on a few years of fighting cancer, copious amounts of chemotherapy and many organs functioning incorrectly, you have yourself a withered old lady before she is even in her mid 50’s.

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
