Q. The skin care system “starter kit” looks fabulous and is obviously a great deal. However it looks like there are so many products. Do I need all of these products?
A. Yes you are correct both the “starter kits” body and skin care system are a fabulous value and the best way to get started. There are several products in the skin care system “starter kit”. You have your basic dailies, which takes you about 3-5 minutes a.m. and p.m. The rest of the products are bonuses for you to try and sample; giving you the decision to make your daily program fit your anti-aging needs.
Q. I hear you should not mix and match your skin care products. Why?
A. I believe when you are first trying a skin care line you need to give it a fair chance. Every product line has its own philosophy of how and why it works. Our products work in synergy. All ingredient combinations, activity levels, ph balances, and molecular structures of each product have been created to work together. Some routines of other skin care lines can actually fight against each other. If you really want to know how a line will work for you, let it do its job properly and completely. So that is why I created the “starter kits.” It’s a perfect sampling of each of the essentials, so you can judge for yourself.
Q. If I was to start on only 3 products what would you suggest?
A. Cleanser, Moisture Enter-Lock and Skin Breather. These are the 3 products that will make a huge difference because of how uniquely different they work from anything else I know. My whole concept of cleansing, moisturizing and exfoliating is so different from anything out there. These 3 products can be intermixed into other lines. Just a reminder: when using my cleansers, do not use a toner from another line. It is not necessary due to the fact my cleansers are completely water-soluble and do not leave an invisible residue. A toner most likely will throw your skin into a negative PH alkaline balance with a drying effect.
Q. I know I am supposed to use a toner, but every time I do it dries my skin and makes it tight. Is there such a thing as a better toner?
A. Here is my answer with toners. You are darned if you use a toner darned if you don’t. Toners are designed to remove the invisible residue left behind from your cleanser. You know how you see that little bit of make-up or grey tinge on the cotton pad? Unfortunately, toners must be in a PH alkaline base to cut through the invisible oils, waxes or silicones in cleansers. This alkaline state fights against your PH acid balance making you dry and tight. There is no toner in my line at all!!!! The only way I was able to eliminate this step was by making my cleansers, eye make-up remover, and even my facial massage cream (used during our facials), completely water-soluble. Again, this leaves no invisible residues in the first place. Therefore, you will have nothing to strip off, and you won’t be drying out your skin. Now the darned if you don’t use a toner. If your current line has a toner, you do need to use it. If not, that residue or tinge you see on your cotton pad is being left on your skin. Then on top of that, you’re adding moisturizer and make-up (build up on top of build up) yuk.
Q. I notice you do not have samples for your line, why not?
A. I don’t know of any skincare product that can offer you changes in just one or two applications unless it’s miracle water (and I would like to know where that stuff is). Also, when was the last time you used a sample, liked it, then remembered the name of the product the next time you were in the store? This is the very reason I designed my “starter kits” It lets you truly sample the line fully allowing it to work in synergy. And with its fabulous intro price you can’t go wrong. The sizes in the “starter kits” will allow you to sample the line for 2-4 months. This will really let you know how well the leaine dehmer clinical skincare will work for you, and will give it the time it needs to cause changes in your skin.
Q. What is it that makes your line so different?
A. Number 1 is the leaine dehmer clinical skincare “synergy” approach. Usually skin care lines boast about an amazing ingredient that is unique or limited to their line. Unfortunately an ingredient or two is not going to be everything your skin needs. My “synergy” approach includes:
never changing the acidic balance of your skin
water-soluble cleansers and eye make-up remover eliminating the use of a drying toner
liquid hydration-therapy for deep down moisture supply to the inner skin tissue (moisture creams are too thick to penetrate below the skins surface)
multiple liposome’s to ensure cellular penetration of beneficial ingredients (clinical laboratory test have suggested the only way for ingredients to penetrate below the skins surface is using liposome’s as the delivery vehicle)
moisturizers with dual environmental protectants (just as damaging to skin as free radicals are negative enzymes) and lipid replacement (just as important as water in your skin)
deep skin peel system without drying, irritating, reddening or thinning your skin (the last thing you want to happen to an aging skin)
ingredient percentages are of the highest activity levels
Let’s put it all together in a skincare routine to see what does not happen to your skin on the leaine dehmer clinical skincare “synergy” system and how my “synergy” approach works differently for you.
Step #1 I’ve used my cleanser now I need to remove the invisible residues it left behind. If your cleanser you are currently using was as cleansing to your skin as the back of the bottle says, then why is there still dirt and make-up on your skin when you use your toner?
Step #2 I’ve used my toner now my skin is dry and tight, so I’ll put my moisturizer on.
Step #3 I’ve used my moisturizer, why do I still have dull looking and flakey skin?
Step #1 After cleansing my skin feels clean and refreshed not dry or tight. No invisible residues, so no toner
Step #2 I use the liquid moisturizer, Moisture Enter-Lock (MEL) “the skin food”. Feeding the skin inside with liquid vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, plant extracts for a deeper penetration. MEL also helps to stop moisture evaporation that happens all day long with the use of humectants that hold moisture into the skin like moisture magnets. The typical method for moisturizing is using thicker creams that lay over the skins surface physically trying to trap moisture into the skin; which clogs the pores and follicles.
Step #3 I moisturize. How convenient a 5 in 1 cream for face, neck, eyes; a day cream and a night cream all in one. Not heavy or greasy it actually went into my skin rather than just laying on top. Women and men are using a face cream to seal in moisture and nourishment that is lacking in the first place. By using the liquid moisturizer first (MEL) you now have moisture, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidant etc… to seal into the skin.
Q. I hear vitamin C does not last in products. Can you explain why because your “Future Youth” Anti-Aging Liquid Serum has a really high concentration of vitamin C? Also I heard there are way better methods to exfoliate!
A. Vitamin C is a wonder ingredient for your skin. Yes, you are correct that it is hard to stabilize in products. It can loose up to 80% or more of its potency once water and air hit the unstable molecule. So we worked with our team of top chemist who has found a unique soy lipid pod or capsule otherwise known as a liposome. These liposome’s not only allow for a deeper delivery below the skins surface of the vitamin C it also seals and protects the vitamin C to keep it stabilized not releasing the vitamin C until it penetrates the skin. For extra protection we also use a triple walled glass bottle that is UV coated (to eliminate the UV from bathroom light bulbs) and is pumped dispensed so your not opening the bottle allowing air to get in nor can you stick your fingers in the bottle keeping your product more hygienic. You will notice in about 8 days the restoration taking place to a sun damaged, sagging skin as well as the darker pre-mature spots beginning to fade. My vitamin C formula is a non-exfoliating form of vitamin C so you are getting the nutrition from the vitamin C not an exfoliating action using a different method of vitamin C mixed with other acids which can over time thin the skin out. So yes I agree in much better methods of exfoliation.
Q. When you talk about your Skin Breather Exfoliant Peel, you refer to it as also being a skin "retenderizer". I have never heard this word used before in a skin care product, can you explain what this means?
A. As we age, our skin surface thickens for many reasons for instance; sun exposure, microdermabrasion, harsh cleansing regimes, just to name a few. This thickening hinders precious ingredient absorption and activity for results (just how grey hair becomes resistant to hair color), my exclusive peptide complex in my Skin Breather Peel reverses this thickening process (retenderizing) returning the skin to a soft and pliable canvas.
