The Enzyme Mask That Treats Acne And Contours Skin

Caroline Aghajanian: I’m gonna cry. We’re at Tamara’s Skin Clinic today, and I’m gonna go in to
get the face and body DMK enzyme mask. This mask claims to really do everything, including promote oxygen
throughout my body and get the blood circulating, and it’s also supposed to tighten and firm the skin. I just got back from a long trip. I’m very jet-lagged, had
three hours of sleep. So I’m really curious to see how I feel after this treatment, if I feel refreshed, awake, and like all the toxins
are flushed out of my body. So, let’s try it out. DMK is a skin-care brand
that develops treatments for aestheticians to use. They have this thing, it’s called the enzyme therapy treatment, and it’s for your face and your body. You’re probably wondering
how much it costs. So, at Tamara’s Skin Care
Clinic, the treatment starts at $160 and goes up from there. On the DMK website, it says
that the enzyme therapy works with your lymphatic system to help remove dead skin cells and toxins, promote blood circulation, help with acne and pigmentation, and restore skin. For the body enzyme therapy, additional benefits include reducing bacne and strengthening and firming the skin. Tamara Petrucci: So, I
see that you have a little acne scarring, you’re a little dry, so what we’ll wanna do is we wanna get your skin hydrated; we wanna get the circulation going so that your skin is bouncy and fresh-looking. Dewy. Caroline: Dewy.
Tamara: Dewy. Caroline: I’m all up for dewy. And what is an enzyme, if no one knows what it is? Tamara: An enzyme is a catalyst that gets the cells to work, so it’s kinda like the little booster. Caroline: Does the body
naturally have enzymes? Tamara: Yes. Caroline: And this is
just giving the body more enzymes to, like, do its work. Tamara: The body and the skin do not utilize chemicals that
it doesn’t recognize. Everything that is in
this mask is something that the body is going to recognize and take and use. Caroline: This is the cleanser? Tamara: This is cleanser. Caroline: Great. Oh, it’s so tickly! Oh, it feels good. Tamara: This is a detox for the skin. It has sea salt and kelp. So it’s gonna bring the
toxins in the skin up and then vaporize them off the skin. So, if last night you were
out drinking with the girls, it will vaporize off. Caroline: Usually this
treatment has exfoliation, but we are skipping that step because I did a chemical
peel a little while ago and we wanna hydrate the skin, and the chemical peel did a lot of what the exfoliation’s gonna do. Tamara: We’re gonna mix up some enzymes. There are four enzymes
within the DMK range. There are three for the face, then we have a body enzyme that is specifically for that, ’cause the body is thicker and so it’s a little stronger. This is the enzyme one mask. Caroline: Mm. Does it smell? Tamara: It smells a
little bit like oatmeal. Caroline: Yeah, it does. It feels very cooling. It’s very relaxing. The smell is different, it’s not like a typical spa-mask smell. Very grainy, very oatmealy. Although it feels very smooth. I feel like the neck area
is starting to tighten up a little bit, so that’s working very fast. I thought it would be,
like, a good 10 minutes before I felt it really tighten, but I feel it already. Producer: You know how you used to, like, put glue on your hand and peel if off? Caroline: Is this what it looks like? Ooh. Producer: Which is, like, so satisfying. Caroline: Yeah, I love glue on hands. It is getting really itchy. What do I do when it gets really itchy? Yeah, like right around the chest area, it’s just, like, super itchy. It, like, almost stings. When I move it around, it feels better. Like, I’m kind of, like,
breaking up the itch of it. Caroline: Over here, you can see my artery is starting to pulse, which means that there’s increased blood flow and lymphatic flow through my body. Tamara: That tightening is
increasing your circulation. When circulation is increased, then there is more oxygen to the system. Oxygen is healing. Caroline: Then I finally sat
up to apply the body mask, starting with an exfoliant. Tamara said that the
enzymes in the body mask are slightly stronger than
the ones in the face mask, and since I don’t have too many visible concerns on my back, I mainly wanted to see the toning and firming benefits. I don’t really think
too much about my back, but if it tones, then that’s great. Just sitting up for 45 minutes, and I really can’t talk anymore. Oh, my God! The video is making me laugh. It’s like, really? [Tamara laughs] OK, it hurts to laugh. Tamara: As long as you’re
laughing, it’s OK. [both laugh] Caroline: Oh, my God, I’m gonna cry. Ooh. OK, don’t poke too much. Tamara: But can you, but when you do that,
Caroline: Yeah. can you see how you’re bouncy now? Caroline: Yeah. Tamara: Lots more fluid in the skin. Caroline: Yes. This feels good ’cause it
feels like I’m cracking in between the mask onto my skin. Love it. A little claustrophobic, but otherwise it feels good. It’s just, like, a new experience, a new feeling on your skin and face. After 45 long minutes, Tamara removed both masks
starting with the back and applied finishing serums and lotions. On the skin, you can see
some dilated capillaries, which are a result of
newly oxygenated blood. Cool! If you like picking at your pimples, this would be so good to do, but I’m not gonna do it. Tamara: But I would fly
down and get you right away. Caroline: Can I touch my face? Tamara: Yes. Caroline: Oh, my God,
it’s incredibly soft. Wow! Wait, I was not…. This is so soft. [gasps] My cheeks are so… so, like….
Tamara: Bouncy! Bouncy, yeah! It’s been a week since I’ve had the DMK face and body enzyme treatment, and I’ve had some time to see how my skin reacted post-treatment, so here we go. Immediately after the
treatment, my skin felt supersoft and reenergized, and I typically break out
a few days post-treatment, but my skin has been in
perfect condition ever since. And I’ve even gone a few days without wearing any foundation, so I’m really surprised at
how well my face has reacted to this enzyme therapy. For the body, it’s a bit
harder to see the results. I didn’t see too many tightening or contouring benefits. I think if I had visible skin conditions, like bacne or hyperpigmentation or sun damage on my skin, that would be a good time
to try this treatment then, but for now I don’t know
if it’s right for me. So, the final verdict. I wouldn’t go back for the body treatment unless my skin really needs it, but I’ll 100% go back for
the face enzyme therapy because I actually saw a
huge difference in my skin. My skin feels great, and maybe I’ll do it once a year and put up with the tiny
discomfort of the treatment, but at the end I’ll leave
with unclogged pores and I’ll remove dirt and
excess oil from my skin and just really start fresh. One thing to know is that
this isn’t your typical facial mask or spa day. You might experience some tightening or itchiness on your face, but I actually saw a
difference in my skin, and I think it’s worth the pain for the results. Some pain, it’s not terrible. I’m gonna cry.
