How To Plump + Hydrate Skin This Winter 

DMK EFA+ will give winter-worn skin a boost of Omegas! Dry, cold air in winter can leave skin depleted of moisture. You can help your clients both in treatment and at home by showing them how to get plump and hydrated skin from the inside out. 

The 2023 Winter Guide to Skin Hydration features supplements for healthy skin, a tool for home use, a collection of products to infuse with ultrasound + microcurrent, and two treatments that channel the skin

DMK EFA+ and Other Supplements For Healthy Skin

The skin can only be as healthy as the body it covers. If clients have good nutrition habits, that will manifest on their skin. Help clients to get plump and hydrated skin by suggesting supplements. In 2023 Face Reality launched two new supplements so their Certified Acne Experts can offer clients a supplement to help their skin. DMK EFA+ has been a staple in Barry’s morning routine for years. Jenni is obsessed with GrandeGUMMIES Vegan Collagen Booster

Plump + Hydrate with ZAQ Microcurrent at Home Tool

We all know that home care rules the skin health! Yes, estys can perform treatments on clients’ skin, but daily product use can exponentially improve the results.  We found a tool from ZAQ that clients can use daily to help get plump and hydrated skin! The microcurrent in this device can help drive serums into the skin when used regularly at home through Iontophoresis for a little more plumpness. Then clients can follow up with their favorite moisturizer to deeply hydrate. 

Plump + Hydrate with Ultrasound + Microcurrent In Treatment

If you want to help clients get more plump and hydrated skin you’ll need to start with truly sophisticated products. Then you can add technology to your treatments to boost product penetration. When you use ultrasound or microcurrent with a hyaluronic-based serum it helps to boost the HA! 

We found a stem-cell conditioned media serum and cream that you’ll love. We suggest that you Infuse the serum with ultrasound and then apply the cream. If clients are sensitive, we found a serum and cream combination that you’ll love to use in conjunction with microcurrent. Then we have a serum and cream combination that also uses Nanopolymer Penetration that will love a little tech boost as well. 

Micro + Nano Channeling Treatments That Plump + Hydrate

We have two treatments that we love, especially in winter. The first is a hyaluronic acid treatment that has the single most unique delivery system! The second is a 4 step facial that uses a device to nano channel the skin to help deliver products that have a patented delivery system for exponential results 

DMK EFA+ by DMK International

The DMK efa+ supplements are a powerful group of essential fatty acids 3,6,7 and 9, derived from evening primrose and sea buckthorn oils. DMK efa’s are required for the structure of all membranes in the body. DMK efa’s “waterproof” the skin, maintaining the barrier of the skin impermeable. The skin’s primary function is to protect internal organs and skeleton from the exterior attack. DMK efa+ only uses the purest raw materials that are compounded in the USA with an FDA-registered lab. DMK efa+ is designed for a wide variety of skin conditions to repair the cell membranes and help to rebuild stronger, healthier, and better functioning skin. DMK efa+ is formulated to aid in the improvement of barrier function and transepidermal water loss. It is particularly useful for acne, inflamed or reactive skin, pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and aging complexions. It is also recommended for clients undergoing professional skin revision treatments. 


EpiFusion Facial by EpiStep

The EpiFusion Facial is one of our favorite treatments for a red carpet-ready glow! This treatment is one of the most unique modalities because it uses 3D-lyzed Hyaluronic Micro Pins and additional active ingredients at the same time!

The EpiFusion Facial Start Kit contains the EpiPin Pro device, ten EpiPin Tips (three Hydration, three Brightening, two Elasticity, two Performance), ten EpiMask, one EpiEssence and marketing materials, fifty flyers, and one table banner.

The device uses a handpiece with detachable and disposable treatment heads. There are 4 different treatment heads for Brightening, Elasticity, Hydration, and Performance. The pins slowly dissolve as you perform the treatment, as Hyaluronic is hydrophilic (it’s attracted to water) so the pins give way to the water in the skin. Essentially the clients’ skin is absorbing the micro-pin. 


Clear Skin Balance + Clear Skin Restore by Face Reality

The Clear Skin Restore supplement contains Zinc and a proprietary Probiotic Gut-Skin Axis Blend to clear skin, reduce the severity of breakouts, support gut health, and support immune health. The Clear Skin Balance supplement’s Omega-3s and proprietary Antioxidant Skin Defense Blend helps to clear skin, brighten skin, balance uneven skin tone, and support immune health.

This powerful combination of supplements complement professional topical treatments and home care routines carefully curated by Face Reality Acne Experts to support clear skin from within. All Face Reality products are designed to support the Face Reality Clear Skin MethodTM: a holistic and personalized acne care program that includes clinically-effective products, lifestyle guidance, and professional treatments. By adding these supplements to their lineup, Face Reality Acne Experts can help their clients get clear skin for good.
