BEAUTIFUL SKIN IS FREE SKIN!

BEAUTIFUL SKIN IS FREE SKIN!

Do you long for smooth, firm, youthful skin that glows with an ethereal, natural beauty? Take a cue from this month’s Independence Day celebrations and free your skin of all that weighs it down and hides its glow and youthfulness.

Beautiful, healthy, vibrant skin is skin that’s free of heavy chemicals and toxins. Yet, many skincare products on the market today are filled with ingredients that are not only unhealthy, but may be downright dangerous for your skin. Examples include artificial fragrances; potentially cancer-causing parabens, PEGs (polyethylene glycol) and artificial colors; SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), which can damage the immune system; phenoxyethanol, which can shut down the central nervous system; and propylene glycol – the same agents used in caustic products like oven cleaners and antifreeze.

Remember that your skin is your body’s first line of defense from external pathogens. It also protects your body from excessive water loss, and aids in insulation, temperature regulation, sensation and the production of disease-fighting vitamin D. That’s why it’s critical to free your skin of all that harms it and hides it healthy glow.

To that end, Dr. Michael Steppie,  MD, president and medical of Associates in Dermatology, developed Ethereal Beauty™ Anti-Aging Cellular Serum. The serum’s patent-pending Pro Organic Complex™ is made with a proprietary blend of certified organic ingredients including kelp extract**, aloe vera leaf juice and sequoia tree stem cells. All are clinically-proven safe and effective in helping patients achieve visibly smoother and radiant complexions.

Achieving a healthy, younger-looking complexion is proving increasingly important with the growing no-makeup trend, driven in large part by celebrities venturing outdoors sans cosmetics. Famous devotees of the trend include actress Cameron Diaz, who posed with a minimalist makeup look for the cover of her book, Longevity; and singer Alicia Keys, who went au naturel in the photo shoot for her new single, In Common and in recent concert performances. Though the trend in part is aimed at freeing women from the pressures of unrealistically high, media-driven beauty standards, it also lends itself to cleaner, clearer, healthier skin free of blemish-causing cosmetics and harsh chemicals.

So… Happy Skindependence Day! Liberate your skin and see your natural beauty come to life!

Steppie MD Supports Earth Day with Earth-Friendly Skincare Products

SM_BLOG_2015-EARTHDAY

Each year, environmentalists and others mark the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. April 22 brings celebrations of the decades-long, worldwide campaign to protect our most important and enduring resource – the earth. Touted as the largest civic event in the world, Earth Day is observed around the globe by more than a billion people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities.

Earth Day offers countless opportunities for learning and teaching others about environmentally friendly practices. Volunteer at a beach or forest cleanup. Help launch a community garden. Install solar panels on your home’s rooftop. Plant a shade tree in your yard. No matter where you live, there is sure to be an Earth Day festival, forum or other event in your area.

But don’t let your earth-loving efforts end when the sun goes down on Wednesday evening. Adopt environmentally friendly habits that you can practice year-round and encourage your family and friends to do the same. One beautiful place to start is your skincare routine.

We here at Steppie, MD are passionate about offering high quality skincare products that not only nourish and protect the youthful resilience of your skin but also are mindful of the power and the preservation of our natural resources. That’s why Dr. Michael Steppie opted for using a 95% certified organic formula in creating his Ethereal Beauty™ ANTI-AGING CELLULAR SERUM. His patent-pending Pro Organic Complex™ utilizes the most effective and cutting-edge natural ingredients to help activate cellular energy and to visibly minimize wrinkles while infusing skin with stem cells from the majestic and Sequoia Tree. Not only is Ethereal Beauty™ highly effective in smoothing, strengthening and revitalizing your skin, it’s also far safer than the vast majority of skincare products on the market. That’s because it does not contain chemicals like parabens, polyethylene glycol and sodium lauryl sulfate, the same potentially harmful additives used in oven and engine degreasers, and abrasive artificial colors and fragrances.

Earth Day is the perfect time to free your skin of harsh manmade chemicals that can both mar your complexion and harm the environment.

Season’s Change is the Perfect Time for a Beauty Boost

BLOG_Oct_SKIN_CELL_KICK

There’s something about the changing of the seasons that lends an impulse to also make changes in ourselves. The advent of the fall season, with its crisp, cool temperatures proves particularly invigorating. That makes right now the perfect time to indulge in a beauty boost, and we have just the incentive you need.

With the close of the summer season, you may notice that your skin is showing the signs of sun exposure damage – comeuppance for all those days spent lounging on the beach or pool deck. After just 20 minutes of exposure to the sun’s powerful UV rays, your skin begins to lose its youth-giving moisture, leading to dry skin, wrinkling and premature damage. Far worse, your risk of developing skin cancer increases.

So how do you get your skin back in shape in time for all those upcoming holiday parties? By harnessing the power of nature to heal your skin and rejuvenate your complexion. Supercharged with Dr. Michael Steppie’s Pro Organic Complex™, Ethereal Beauty™-Anti Aging Cellular Elixir is infused with precious stem cells from the mighty Sequoia tree plus a unique revitalizing kelp extract and pure Aloe Vera juice, along with other potent certified organic ingredients. This powerful yet gentle and fast-acting blend is proven to stimulate your skin’s cellular energy and collagen production; boost DNA repair; detoxify aging proteins; reduce premature skin aging caused by inflammation and environmental assaults like the summer sun and the winter wind; and replenish your skin with essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and other natural anti-oxidants and moisturizers.

In just one month of using Ethereal Beauty™ you’ll see improvement in your skin’s wrinkle depth, firmness, hydration and radiance – particularly if you use it in conjunction with sumptuous skincare procedures such as Steppie MD’s mini facial and Xeomin treatments.

Throughout November, we offer two amazing specials:

  • A 25-minute mini facial for just $25. Plus, receive a free bottle of In the Light Intensive Pigment Corrector by Steppie MD Essentials when you purchase two skincare products.
  • At the dermatology practice, A $10 per unit Xeomin treatment. If you like Botox™,you are going to love Xeomin… Schedule your Xeomin treatment before November 28 and purchase a minimum of 30 units to receive a $50 prepaid Visa card good for your next visit.

Don’t wait. Take advantage of all the new season has to offer and do it with a smoother, more radiant and youthful look. Call 800-827-SKIN to schedule your mini facial or Xeomin treatment and to purchase Ethereal Beauty™ today.

Declare “Skindependence” and Embrace your Newfound Freedom…

Many skin care products available today contain cosmetic fillers or use harmful chemical ingredients and preservatives. Yet, do you realize that the SKIN is the largest organ of your body?

Most of us do not consider skin an organ, yet is sure is. It’s the body’s first line of defense from external pathogens and protects the body from excessive water loss. It also aids in insulation, temperature regulation, sensation, and the production of disease-fighting vitamin D. So, it’s clear that freeing your skin of potentially harmful chemicals, fillers and preservatives is critical for both health and beauty:

  • Parabens: These are very cost effective chemical preservatives used in food, personal care and skincare products to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus. There is increasing concern as they are said to mimic estrogen, known to drive the growth of tumors. Plus, methylparaben has been shown to react with UVB when applied on skin, accelerating aging and causing DNA damage.
  • Phenoxyethanol: The FDA warned that this commonly used preservative can cause a shutdown of the central nervous system, vomiting and contact dermatitis.
  • PEGs (polyethylene glycol): PEGs are used in skin cleansers to dissolve grease and to thicken skincare products, yet it strips skin’s precious natural protective barrier. It’s hard to believe, but polyethylene glycol often is used in caustic spray-on oven cleaners! And, it is potentially carcinogenic.
  • SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate): This component is found in car wash soaps, garage floor cleaners and engine degreasers. It is possibly the most dangerous of all ingredients in personal care yet, it is one of the most commonly used in products that foam. Some research has indicated SLS may damage the immune system, especially within the skin.
  • Propylene Glycol: This ingredient is a petroleum product, and actually the active component in antifreeze! It is used in the personal care industry as a solvent and is found in most forms of makeup, hair products and skincare products.
  • Artificial Colors: These artificial colors give cosmetics their beautiful hues, but they’re believed to be cancer-causing agents, and also cause skin sensitivity and irritation.
  • Fragrances: The synthetic fragrances only labeled as “fragrance” can have hundreds, even thousands of manmade ingredients that can cause skin irritation, rash and headaches, according to reports to the FDA.

Many believe that beneficial skincare results can come only from potent and highly advertised skincare products. But the reality is that these highly promoted products are mostly filled with harsh chemicals.

Dr. Michael Steppie’s #1 focus as a skin cancer expert has always been on the skin’s health. So, when formulating his state-of-the-art anti-aging regimen infused with his patent pending Pro Organic Complex™, he was very selective with the powerful ingredients he chose – paying no mind to the expensive cost of these premium, safe and remarkably effective actives. All that mattered was that these natural components would work synergistically to deliver the best possible results for your skin’s youthful beauty and radiant glow. He intended for you to have the best of both words: Gentle, skin-friendly formulas and exceptional visible results!

Set yourself free from empty promises and embrace your own, eTheReal Beauty. Liberate your skin and see your natural beauty come to life!

Boost your daily ritual with the ultimate organic skincare regimen offering remarkable visible results! Happy Skindependence Day!

It’s Time to Realize Your Skin is a Valuable Possession

SMD_BLOG_VISUAL_JUNE

When handling or moving precious family heirlooms – a dish that belonged to your great grandmother, your grandfather’s antique pocket watch or a photo album chock full of decades of cherished memories – no doubt you take great care to protect and preserve them. You handle them gently, surround them with protective barriers like bubble wrap when packing them for a move, and safely store them away or display them in spots clear of potentially ruinous occurrences. There’s simply no way you’ll allow the risk of a spilled drink ruining your vintage family photos.

Yet, when it comes to our bodies, our skin and our general health, we often tend to lack the same level of care that we expend upon material items – even when protective measures are easy to accomplish. For instance, it’s easy to limit our skin’s daily exposure to the sun’s damaging UV rays by simply wearing a high-quality, high-SPF sun screen, a broad-brimmed hat and a fashionably long summer dress.

Unfortunately, your skin doesn’t come with a “Fragile: Handle with Care” sticker. But that’s exactly how you should think about your skin and approach caring for it. Many don’t realize that skin is classified as an actual living organ. In fact, it’s your body’s largest organ and is responsible for protecting your body in multiple ways:

  1. Acting as a barrier between you and potentially harmful aggressors like germs;
  2. Regulating your body’s temperature;
  3. And communicating factors like touch, pain, pressure and temperature to your body’s central nervous system, which controls your movements and helps you to react, remember, think and plan.

Consider these benefits and you’ll see that healthy skin is a far more valuable asset than most people realize. That’s why taking great care of your skin means far more than looking young and vibrant, it also lends benefits to your body’s overall health. Indeed, your skin is a precious and fragile possession that you must handle with care in order to protect not just your beautiful face, but your whole body.

Fortunately, nature provides many elements proven effective in caring for our skin. That’s why Dr. Michael Steppie formulated his Ethereal Beauty™ – Anti Aging Cellular Serum with the highest quality natural ingredients, combined in a way that jumpstarts the skin’s innate ability to repair damage, turns back the hands of time, and promotes a natural, healthy and glowing appearance. With a deep understanding of the skin’s fragile nature, Dr. Steppie developed Ethereal Beauty as a safe, 95 % organic serum free of harsh chemicals. When used correctly and consistently, this groundbreaking formula works as a “bubble wrap” for your skin.

Gently replenishing, yet supercharged and powerfully repairing, Ethereal Beauty – Anti Aging Cellular Serum is the best way to care for your body’s very precious asset – its skin.

Show Your Skin Some Love this February with Steppie MD’s Pro Organic Complex

Steppie_md_BLOGvisual_FEB2014

Celebrated for centuries, Valentine’s Day is a day to show your lover just how special he or she is to you. But whether you have a Valentine or not, treating yourself with love is key to a healthy mindset and a youthful look. A great new way to pamper yourself this February: Dr. Michael Steppie, MD’s Pro Organic Complex.

Dr. Steppie’s proprietary rejuvenating blend, the Pro Organic complex is used in the highest concentration in his remarkable ANTI AGING CELLULAR SERUM. Patient results have been remarkable – smoother, firmer, brighter and younger-looking skin. And while it’s a favorite of our female clientele, Steppie MD’s male patients are embracing it as well.

In fact a recent survey of men showed that a full 54 percent regularly use skincare products. As they increasingly opt for high-end skincare treatments and products, many are seeing firsthand the skin boosting results of Dr. Steppie’s Pro Organic Complex, a supercharged and highly concentrated blend of certified organic ingredients including potent and rare Sequoia tree stem cells, kelp extract and olive oil. This patent-pending anti-aging powerhouse helps to boost the skin’s repair mechanisms, and reactivate the skin’s youthful state. For instance, it’s also been proven to help accelerate the recovery process after cosmetic procedures such as chemical peels and laser treatments, as well as plastic surgery.

Not only is it powerfully effective, but the ANTI AGING CELLULAR SERUM also offers an easy-to-use, all-in-one rejuvenating serum that can be used morning and evening. After all, men don’t want the hassle of a multitude of products. They want something simple but strong – and our Pro Organic Complex delivers.

A few benefits of Dr. Steppie’s ANTI AGING CELLULAR SERUM which men love:

  • It’s ideal for use after shaving, as it helps minimize the discomfort associated with razor burn;
  • It’s lightweight and penetrates quickly – something men on the go love;
  • It moisturizes the skin, visibly minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improving skin texture over a period of regular use;
  • And, it features a subtle scent liked by both sexes.

Besides its numerous rewarding benefits, a number of our male clients also tell us they like the ANTI AGING CELLULAR SERUM’s state-of-the-art packaging, noting that it doesn’t look like a “girly” skincare product.

Says one happy client of using the ANTI AGING CELLULAR SERUM: “Before using this serum my skin was becoming dry, rough and dull. It is lightweight and sinks right into my skin – it’s like my skin is ‘drinking’ it. After applying, my skin is definitely more hydrated, feels and looks healthier than before and to my amazement the fine lines have just about disappeared! I can tell such a BIG difference in such a short amount of time.”

The ANTI AGING CELLULAR SERUM is practical for everyday use, easy to take on-the-go in a purse or gym bag, and adheres to TSA requirements for carry-on travel, making it ideal to take on those weekend gateways.

A safe & effective replenishing booster for pregnant women

SMD045_BLOG_JAN_VISUAL

It’s a new year full of promising new beginnings, and you’re preparing yourself, your family, and your home for the pending arrival of your new bundle of joy. It’s time to start preparing your skin, too. Whether this is your first pregnancy or not, your belly is not the only thing changing these days. Your face is also going to require some special attention.

Due to hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy, facial skin can become just as sensitive as your roller-coaster emotions. It is common for a pregnant woman to suddenly become bothered by the products she’s sworn by for years. Pregnancy hormonal changes may rob some women of their skin’s oil and elasticity, which leads to dry, flaky, or cracked skin. These conditions can inhibit your body’s greatest defense system (your skin!) and may increase your risk of developing allergies or catching a virus. It is therefore important to protect your skin’s fragile “ecosystem” while also replenishing it with crucial nutrients.

It can be a scary task to navigate the beauty aisle when you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, as there are many products with tons of chemical ingredients that you are concerned would put your baby at risk. Many believe that beneficial skincare results can come only from highly advertised skincare products. But the reality is that the vast majority of these highly promoted products are mostly filled with harsh chemicals.

In our July blog… on SKIndependance Day!… we explained that Ethereal Beauty -Anti Aging Cellular Elixir is FREE from:

  • Parabens: These inexpensive chemical preservatives used in food, personal care and skincare products are believed to mimic estrogen, which is known to drive the growth of tumors. And, methylparaben can react with UVB, accelerating skin aging and causing DNA damage.
  • Phenoxyethanol: This commonly used preservative can cause vomiting, contact dermatitis and a shutdown of the central nervous system, according to the FDA.
  • PEG (polyethylene glycol): Believe it or not, the same stuff used to dissolve oven grease is also used as a thickening agent in skincare products. Yet, PEG can strip skin’s precious natural protective barrier and is potentially carcinogenic.
  • SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate): Found in car wash soaps, garage floor cleaners and engine degreasers, SLS also is used in foaming skincare products despite research indicating that it may damage the immune system – especially within the skin.
  • Propylene Glycol: The active component in antifreeze also is used as a solvent in nearly all forms of makeup, hair products and skincare products.
  • Artificial Colors: Artificial colors in cosmetics and skincare products can cause skin sensitivity and irritation, and are believed to be cancer-causing agents.
  • Fragrances: Synthetic fragrances may contain thousands of manmade ingredients that can cause skin irritation, rash and headaches.

As a renowned skin cancer expert, Dr. Michael Steppie has focused solely on the skin’s heath throughout his medical and dermatology career. Despite high costs that many would consider prohibitive, Dr. Steppie selected the highest quality organic ingredients when formulating Ethereal Beauty – Anti Aging Cellular Elixir and its patent pending Pro Organic Complex™. Natural components work together in a powerfully effective yet gentle and safe way to give you smooth, radiant and healthy skin.

Steppie MD Ethereal Beauty™ – Anti Aging Cellular Elixir is the pure, gentle, and doctor formulated “Skintervention” pregnant women are begging for to “put their best face forward” while intensely fortifying their skin and restoring their healthy glow…

Natural, with 95% certified organic ingredients, it contains no harsh chemicals, preservatives, artificial colors or fragrances and is safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding with no adverse side effects.

It can be added to any existing skincare regimen to help balance and soothe the skin and increase moisture. In addition to these protective and healing benefits, Ethereal Beauty™ also is a needle-free, non-invasive anti-aging cellular elixir with dramatic results to boost skin’s rejuvenation.

So as you start 2014 and prepare for this joyous new addition to your family, make a harmonious addition to your skincare regimen with the pure, potent, and protective Ethereal Beauty™. Welcome to a new year and a new you with the Ethereal Beauty and glow that radiates from within – especially when you’re expecting!

Boost Your Health & Beauty Outlook in 2014!

Steppie_BLOG_Dec

We here at Steppie MD sincerely hope that you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season with loved ones and are ready for all that the new year will bring. The dawn of each year brings with it a new chapter in our lives, replete with new challenges, new opportunities and new blessings. No doubt, you’ll progress in your career, add to your circle of friends and make choices designed to improve your health and well-being, and thereby, your life.

As you march into 2014, it’s critical that you keep a positive outlook about the year ahead. If you haven’t already, adopt an active lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and plenty of exercise. But also be sure to take time out from your busy schedule to rest and relax, and to reflect on the truly important things in your life. Resolve to take control of your life rather than allow yourself to be subject to your circumstances. Do you feel you’ve been dealt a tough set of cards? Then toughen up and make your situation and experiences work for you rather than against you. We know you’ve got it in you to succeed!

One way to boost your confidence in 2014 is to boost your beauty ritual. A nutritious diet, exercise and rest will surely help. And so will embracing the concept of Ethereal Beauty. It’s far more than an outward appearance. True Ethereal Beauty comes from within. Take a look at the definitions of Ethereal:

  1. Extremely delicate or refined; exquisite
  2. Almost as light as air; impalpable; airy
  3. Celestial or spiritual

Which of these definitions most aptly describes you? Are you one, two or all of the above? Whichever you choose, we encourage you to be real, genuine… and embrace all that’s truly beautiful about you, flaws and all. That slightly crooked smile lends a unique character. And that inner joy and confidence that radiates from within no matter what your age is lends an undeniable glow.

From all of us here at Steppie MD, we wish you a healthy, happy and gorgeous glow throughout 2014.

Ready to Set the Tone for the Holidays?

Steppie_MD_BLOG_NOV_VISUAL

Cool, crisp temperatures, holiday music and decorations, and the aroma of seasonal favorites wafting from the kitchen all set the tone for the Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. But wintertime can wreak havoc on your complexion. Perhaps that’s why the American Academy of Dermatology named November National Healthy Skin Month. That means right now is a great time to set the tone for the holidays in your skincare routine, too.

Cold air outside can sap the moisture from your skin. But so, too can the warm, dry air forced into your home by central heating systems. As a result your skin can take on a flaky or ashy look, and can even crack. And those skin lesions can increase your risk to develop allergies or other viruses. That is because your skin is not just your body’s natural covering, it is actually a full functioning organ – in fact, it’s the body’s largest organ! So, protecting your skin is about more than beautiful, toned and youthful looking skin, it’s about your overall health, too.

To that end, women everywhere are taking the pledge to set the tone for the holidays by guarding and nourishing their skin. They’re vowing to wear stylish winter hats and sunglasses to protect their skin from the sun’s rays. After all, the sun doesn’t disappear with the summer – it continues to rise and to flood our skin with harmful UV rays. They’re also keeping their skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water and slathering on moisturizers.

Boost your seasonal skincare routine by adding Ethereal Beauty™ Anti-Aging Cellular Elixir. This intensive, fast-acting serum features the Pro-Organic ComplexTM, a patent-pending blend of 95% certified organic ingredients scientifically proven to visibly reverse the signs of aging while regenerating and fortifying the skin. The revolutionary technology of sequoia leaf native cells and a rejuvenating kelp extract pair with an ultra nourishing olive oil blend to form a unique powerhouse that works in harmony with your skin’s natural ecosystem. This potent formula goes above and beyond by replacing water with a premium aloe vera leaf juice and is packaged in an airless dispenser to protect its natural preservative system.

So put your best face forward during the holidays – a great time to experience the benefits of this remarkable booster designed to help saturate your skin with moisture and nutrients that nourish, hydrate and tone your skin, protecting it from the harsh winter elements.
