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


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.

Get Healthy, Beautiful Skin in Focus


Each January, people around the world draw up lists of all the ways they aim to improve their lives, focusing their goals on ideals of health, relationships, finances, etc. Among the top objectives that many women (and an ever increasing number of men) choose to focus on is gaining a healthier, younger more vibrant look. If you’re among the millions who want more beautiful skin in 2015, it’s time to focus your New Year’s resolutions on developing and maintaining a healthier skincare ritual with Steppie MD’s revolutionary Ethereal Beauty™ – Anti Aging Cellular Serum.

There are a handful of common New Year’s resolutions that, if kept, will help improve the look and health of your skin. These include adopting a nutritious diet, drinking lots of water, exercising, getting adequate sleep and protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. But a high-quality daily skincare routine truly is the bedrock of beautiful skin.

Unfortunately, many skincare products on the market today may actually do more to harm your skin than help it because they’re made with harsh chemicals that can cause skin irritation.

Even those with packaging messages that claim natural ingredients typically contain such small amounts and concentrations of them that they offer little, if any benefit.

That’s why, in developing Ethereal Beauty™, Dr. Michael Steppie focused on using the best the earth has to offer. His revolutionary anti-aging serum is 95 percent organic, compared to the vast majority of skincare products today that are made primarily of synthetic materials. Among the most potent of the cutting-edge ingredients in Ethereal Beauty™ are rejuvenating kelp extract and sequoia tree stem cells – a breakthrough ingredient never before seen in beauty products. Also at work is high-quality Aloe Vera, which contains more than 200 biologically active amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, enzymes and polysaccharides, and known for its wound repair, moisturizing and prebiotic properties. While most competing skincare products have a base comprised of up to 90 percent of water, Ethereal Beauty™ instead is made with this highly beneficial Aloe Vera base.

This year, take advantage of the tremendous amount of research and development by an award-winning skincare specialist. Try Ethereal Beauty™ and see how Dr. Steppie’s innovative pro-organic complex™ can give you the beautiful skin you’ve been dreaming of – 2015 is YOUR year to focus on and achieve a healthier, younger more radiant look.

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


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.

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


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.

Says one very happy client: “I was a little nervous using Ethereal Beauty – Anti Aging Cellular Elixir™ right after my medical grade TCA peel. My skin is so sensitive that I cannot even use gentle dermatologist recommended ointments after my treatments. I am allergic to many make-up brands and even nail polish. I decided to try this product because I really need something that not only is organic but has result-oriented and powerful ingredients to deliver visible results. I used this anti-aging serum right after my peel and not only did it not burn, it seemed to heal my skin faster than usual.

A safe & effective replenishing booster for pregnant women


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!


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.
