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!
