Currently studying a Bachelor of Medicine & Science, Melbournite, Olivia Wells, tells us how she fits in skin care between study and travel.
q1. Are you enjoying your new dmk regime? Do you have a favourite product?
My new DMK regime is great. I especially loved my facial! I recently spent time in Tonga volunteering in a hospital and my favourite product was definitely an essential in the Polynesian sun! The transdermal sunscreen was non-greasy and didn’t make my face look like Casper the friendly ghost!
q2. What was your first dmk treatment experience like? Have you ever had anything like it?
My first DMK experience was nothing like I had ever experienced before. The enzyme mask is certainly a unique product and I was very sceptical of it to begin with. As a medical student I am dubious when I hear scientific claims as many skin care brands use pseudo science that really make no sense from a biochemical or anatomical standpoint. However DMK was certainly a refreshing change! Donna gave me a complete run down of all the active ingredients and their effect on the skin and lymphatic system and I even managed to pass my facial off as “study time” before my exam!
q3. Do you have any skin concerns?
I’m very lucky to say that I currently have no skin concerns. Before beginning my DMK regime I was hesitant to switch from my previous skincare brand as I felt that it would be unwise to attempt to ‘fix something that wasn’t broken’. DMK has not only maintained my skin but has given it extra clarity and a beautiful glow.
q4. Has using DMK helped/changed your skin?
DMK has most certainly helped me maintain my skin, it’s one of the features I am most proud of! Travelling recently was very stressful to my skin, however with the help of my handy travel size DMK products I barely noticed! The Herb & Mineral Mist was a lifesaver on extended plane journeys to keep my skin hydrated and was a great refresher in the tropical Tongan humidity!
q5. Would you recommend DMK’s Klear Collection to your friends who suffer from breakouts?
My younger brother has unfortunately battled terrible acne for some years. What we initially attributed to a few spots thanks to “growing up” became a horrendous bout of acne that affected his self esteem greatly. I watched my outgoing younger brother, always the larrikin, crawl into a shell of self-consciousness. We tried supermarket topical treatments, prescription creams and even drugs and nothing worked. After my first visit to DMK and hearing Danne Montague-King’s story, one that hit so close to home, I knew that this was the product to help out my little brother!
q6. What would it mean to you to become miss universe Australia?
To be crowned Miss Universe Australia would be an honour and privilege. I would hope to be a positive role model for young people and women especially. Throughout school I was always the nerdy girl, for a long time picked on because I enjoyed, and was good at school. If I were to be given the title, I would like to be a role model to those who may feel outcast because what they enjoy or are good at isn’t what is seen as “cool” or “normal”. I am also passionate about volunteering locally (I have tutored students from refugee and migrant backgrounds for almost 5 years now) and internationally, and would hope to use the title as a platform to engage other young people in the benefits and joys of giving back to the local and international community.
