Beautiful Skin is Free Skin

BLOG_SKINDEPENDANCE_DAY

Do you long for smooth, firm, youthful skin that glows with an ethereal beauty? Take a cue from this weekend’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 skin-irritating and headache-causing 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 cause a shutdown of the central nervous system; and propylene glycol. These agents are the same ones used in caustic products like oven cleaners, engine degreasers 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. And that’s why Dr. Steppie, MD created Ethereal Beauty™ Anti-Aging Cellular Serum, a state-of-the-art anti-aging serum infused with his patent pending Pro Organic Complex™ made with safe, top-quality certified organic ingredients including a breakthrough rejuvenating kelp extract**, and cutting-edge Sequoia tree stem cells, all blended in the highest quality Aloe Vera leaf juice.

90% improvement in skin firmness** / 80% Visible reduction in wrinkle depth**

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.

Get Healthy, Beautiful Skin in Focus

SMD045_BLOG_JANUARY2015_FOCUSED_INTENSITY (1)

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.

Declare “Skindependence” and Embrace your Newfound Freedom…

BLOG_Visual_SKINDEPENDANCE_DAY

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!

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.

A Few Testimonials* Praising Ethereal Beauty… Try It and See a Visible Difference in Your Skin, too!

13AID035_BLOG_IMAGES_ETHEREAL_WOMEN_1

Since its introduction, Steppie MD’s proprietary Ethereal Beauty – Anti Aging Cellular Elixir™ has garnered rave reviews from patients of all age groups and sensitivities. Younger patients report that their makeup goes on smoother, while more mature clients excitedly tell us they’ve watched fine lines minimize in less than a month.

Got sensitive skin? No worries. Multiple patients who suffer sensitive skin ailments and even allergies to many common skincare ingredients are finding beautiful success with Ethereal Beauty™. Even patients who undergo skincare treatments such as our chemical peels or removal of pre-cancerous spots are using this supercharged, nature-infused serum immediately following their treatments and seeing their skin recover faster than expected.

The result: Smooth, youthful, healthy looking and beautiful skin. Here’s what our patients are saying about Ethereal Beauty™…

Hi there,

Several pre-cancerous spots on my face were recently treated at Associates in Dermatology. Your health care provider froze them with nitrogen. I met with your paramedical esthetician right after the treatment and she took a photo of the condition of my face…, and recommended Ethereal Beauty – Anti Aging Cellular Elixir™.

Yesterday I let her know that the effects of this serum were noticeable to me. The nitro-treated spots seemed to heal quicker – They were almost gone after 7 days instead of the usual 2 weeks. I also noticed that my skin seems very soft, smooth, and more supple, and that make-up goes on much nicer.

Your paramedical esthetician showed me the initial photo (before picture!), and the photo from yesterday, and I am amazed at the difference. I love this serum. Thanks so much.

Joyce S. 

Hello,

I started using Ethereal Beauty – Anti Aging Cellular Elixir™ on October 1st. Truly, I cannot say enough about this product. The outcome so far has been amazing. On the first week, the texture of my skin felt different. My skin felt firmer, the lines along my upper lip looked softer and not as deep. My friends asked me if I had a procedure done on my face because it looked different. Now in the second week, I noticed how unbelievably smoother my forehead was. As I continue to use this anti aging serum, I cannot wait to see what other remarkable things will surface. I would strongly recommend this product to everyone.

Cindy B. 

Dr. Steppie,

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. After that, it is the only product I am using to maintain my skin – youthful and comfortable.

Thank you for helping my skin.

Jenny P.

While these testimonials were provided by several of our female patients, Ethereal Beauty™ is a hit among male Steppie MD patients as well. They’re enjoying smoother skin texture and love the soothing feel of the serum after shaving.
