The most common habits that cause premature skin aging—and practical tips on how to change them—from top dermatologist Dr. Debbie Palmer.

Beautiful skin isn't all in the genes. There's plenty you can do to, on a daily basis, to keep skin youthful and radiant.

Is there a “miracle” way to prevent skin aging? In my busy practice, I get a lot of questions about how to reduce and prevent premature skin aging, and I can say this: There is no miracle, but staying out of the sun is first and foremost and can make a huge difference in how your skin ages. The sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays trigger the production of free radicals, which contribute to the breakdown of the key youth-building substance, collagen. (Collagen is the structural protein that gives your skin its fullness. Without collagen, skin develops wrinkles and sags.) Next up is lifestyle: eating a healthy balance of the right foods (like colorful, antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies), drinking enough water, exercising to reduce stress, and getting enough sleep all help to slow down the skin’s aging process, too.

 

"Eating a healthy balance of the right foods (like colorful, antioxidant-rich fruits and veggies), drinking enough water, exercising to reduce stress, and getting enough sleep all help to slow down the skin’s aging process."

 

What that said, though, there are some simple tweaks you can make to your daily habits that can also make a difference:

1) BECOME A BACK SLEEPER. No matter how soft your pillow, sleeping on your side or with your face in the pillow causes the skin to crease and the fabric—from the pillowcase—to bunch up, putting pressure on your face every single night. Over time, this repeated action can create sleep lines on your face and neck, which can become permanent wrinkles. Sleeping on your back is the best option to avoid these lines. Some patients have told me they find it helpful to place a pillow under their knees or molded next to their body to prevent them from sleeping on their stomach or on their side. If you absolutely can’t avoid sleeping with your face in the pillow, invest in a silk pillowcase. The slippery surface of these pillowcases reduces the friction between your skin and the fabric, minimizing the bunching up of fabric that contributes to deep creases.

 

"Invest in a silk pillowcase. The slippery surface of these pillowcases reduces the friction between your skin and the fabric, minimizing the bunching up of fabric that contributes to deep creases."

 

2) WEAR A SWEATER AT HOME—INSTEAD OF CRANKING UP THE HEAT. Excessive heat sucks the moisture out of air, dehydrating skin (and hair) and making wrinkles more pronounced. Keep heat moderate (around 68°F or 69°F), drink plenty of water, and use a humidifier to combat dehydration. Optimal humidity levels are between 40 and 60% (a humidistat can measure these levels so you know when to leave the humidifier running and when to shut it off).

3) SKIP THE STRAWS. Drinking through a straw every once in awhile is not going to cause wrinkles, but if you make it a regular habit several times a day (or more) over many years, it can contribute to upper and lower lip (perioral) wrinkle formation. The simple reason: The more you fold the skin in this area or pucker your lips (like a smoker does), the more creased (and wrinkled) skin in this area becomes.

 

"The more you pucker your lips, the more creased (and wrinkled) skin in this area becomes."

 

4) LIMIT ALCOHOL INTAKE. Even though red wine is a good source of antioxidants, drinking a lot of it—or any alcohol, for that matter—isn’t good for any part of your body, skin included. One of the main reasons is that alcohol acts as a diuretic, causing dehydration. This can cause your skin to look older and more wrinkled; it can also make skin look pale or gray in color. (Too much alcohol is also toxic for your liver, which can contribute to skin discoloration.) It helps to drink water in between drinks to stay hydrated, but it’s better to limit your drinks from the get-go!

Excessive alcohol also reduces blood levels of vitamin A, an important antioxidant for your skin that’s critical for collagen production. It helps to drink antioxidants (coffee and green tea are good sources) or eat antioxidants—and to apply them topically to neutralize these effects. Replenish from the inside and out!

Alcohol is also a vasodilator that widens the blood vessels of the face—causing facial redness and swelling. Over time, these vessels can become more visible as broken capillaries or persistent redness.

My philosophy: It’s always best to maintain a healthy balance in life to keep your body healthy—and your skin looking it’s youthful, radiant best.

Stay beautiful!

Westchester, New York dermatologist Dr. Debbie Palmer explains why free radicals are so bad for the body—and why antioxidants can help reverse their effects.

The deeper the color of the fruit or veggie, the more antioxidants it contains. Blueberries, shown here, are chockfull of antioxidants thanks to their deep blue color.

As the Medical Director of Dermatology Associates of New York, in Westchester, NY, and founder of REPLERE, I always get questions about why free radicals are so bad for the skin and the body. That’s why I wanted to explain free radicals, here, in the easiest way possible.

When exposed to oxygen, metal rusts and apples turn brown. The same thing happens in our bodies—except this reaction happens as a result of many things, not just exposure to oxygen. For example, exposure to pollution (including secondhand cigarette smoke and car exhaust), the sun’s ultraviolet rays, pesticides, and processed foods can all trigger this reaction in the body. Stress—emotional and physical—can trigger the production of free radicals in the body, too.

This creation of free radicals in the body can, over time, result in illness and disease, as well as premature aging, because these free radicals attack healthy cells, changing their structure and the way they function.

But antioxidants can reverse this process—and that’s why I’m such a huge fan of antioxidants. The body has natural antioxidants to essentially “fight” the effects of free radicals, but when the body is under stress itself, its antioxidant stores can get depleted.

Eating plenty of colorful fruits and veggies and beans (like kidney beans and black beans) can help shore up the body’s antioxidant defenses to prevent the production of free radicals. But sometimes, we can’t get enough—why I created REPLERE Restore & Fortify Beauty Shooters. These one-ounce drinks contain your day’s worth of antioxidants and conveniently fit into your bag (and don’t need to be refrigerated) so you can take them with you anywhere.

But the entire line of REPLERE products helps keep the skin youthful and radiant because it targets the five free radicals that damage and age the skin: peroxyl, hydroxyl, peroxynitrite, superoxide anion, and singlet oxygen. REPLERE is really the first complete antioxidant solution for this reason—and is just one reason why I’m just so proud of this line of products.

So if I leave you with anything today, it’s this: be sure to eat plenty of colorful fruits and veggies like berries, leafy greens, broccoli, and red bell peppers (the more color they have, the more antioxidants they contain); be sure you’re taking steps to reduce stress every day; protect your skin from the sun with antioxidants layered under a sunscreen, and get enough sleep (too little sleep stresses the body, triggering the production of free radicals).

Have a beautiful day!

Dermatologist and leading antioxidant expert Dr. Debbie Palmer weighs in on two new studies highlighting how a healthy body equals healthy skin.

When it comes to the skin, I’m fascinated by everything about it. In fact, as many of my friends know, I’ve wanted to be a dermatologist since I was in junior high. At that time, I was 11 years old and in the 6th grade. We were asked to give our first oral presentation to the class — and I chose to speak about, you guessed it, the skin! I can remember my mother asking me what I was preparing and when I told her, she wanted to know why skin and not a topic that was more fun. My response to her: nothing else is nearly as fun as talking about skin! I still feel the same way today!

"When it comes to the skin, I’m fascinated by everything about it."

With that bit of background on me, I wanted to share two fascinating new healthy body/healthy skin studies that have come out—and that we’ve shared with our Facebook fans (by the way, we’re so excited to have just passed 4,000 likes!) and Twitter followers. If you’re not following us yet, please do to stay on top of all this news.

• A healthy body = radiant, glowing skin. The body and the skin are absolutely interconnected, something I’ve believed for a long time. So I was excited to see a new study from the University of Southern Denmark that says skin—the largest organ in the body—actually communicates with the liver, which is the organ that filters out toxins. This is why—if something’s going on inside our body—it’s often reflected in the skin (rashes, eczema, wrinkles, sallow skin, etc.) This is proof why taking the holistic approach to health and our body is so important.

"The body and the skin are absolutely interconnected, something I’ve believed for a long time."

• Smoking is at the top of the worst-things-you-can-do-for-your-skin list (right there next to going out in the sun without sunscreen). One reason why: it creates free radicals in the body—and in the skin. And it’s these free radicals that trigger diseases and stimulate the production of enzymes that break down collagen and elastin more quickly, triggering skin damage, including wrinkles, dullness, brown spots, loss of elasticity (e.g. sagging skin), and rough texture. A new study of twins, published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, backs this all up. The researchers found that twins who smoke show significantly more premature facial aging, compared to their nonsmoking identical twins.

"Free radicals trigger diseases and stimulate the production of enzymes that break down collagen and elastin more quickly, triggering skin damage, including wrinkles, dullness, brown spots, loss of elasticity, and rough texture."

One of the reasons I created REPLERE Restore & Fortify Beauty Shooters was to help people stay healthy on the inside, so they can look radiant and healthy on the outside. Each of these one-ounce bottles contains powerful antioxidants—which are essentially nature’s defense against free radicals. If you can eat enough colorful fruits and veggies (think: brightly colored peppers, blueberries, kale, carrots, sweet potatoes…) every day, then all the better! But if you can’t, these daily Beauty Shooters can help give your body what it needs.

Have a beautiful day!

Are you new to Replere? Welcome! This month, Dr. Palmer talks about the backbone of Replere skincare – antioxidants! And why they are the secret to glowing, healthy, youthful looking skin. Read on!

Welcome to REPLERE!

Recently we passed the 3,000 “Like” mark on our Facebook page – woohoo! Facebook is an active, thriving community of Replere friends & family, and it’s a place where we choose to share daily thoughts, inspirations, ideas and sometimes a recipe or two, as well as important information about Replere products. Still, we thought this might be a great time to talk about the backbone of Replere skincare – antioxidants – in more depth, for those who are new to the brand, the products and its philosophy.

A few quick Replere® facts:

• Created by dermatologist and leading antioxidant expert Dr. Debbie Palmer, REPLERE skincare products are formulated with Coffea arabica extract (or Green Coffee Extract), the un-ripened berry of the coffee plant, which is a top dietary source of antioxidants. They also contain a mix of other potent antioxidants including pine bark, goji and açai berries, grapeseed, pomegranate, green tea, and vitamins A, C, & E.

• REPLERE’s exclusive blend of antioxidants neutralizes age-accelerating free radicals—created from exposure to sunlight, pollution (including secondhand cigarette smoke and car exhaust), emotional and physical stress, poor diet, and even exercise. In doing so, they slow down aging of the skin.

• REPLERE® crème formulas are packaged in airless containers to avoid decreased potency from air exposure - and bacterial contamination - that can occur though daily use. The REPLERE collection is also paraben, fragrance, BPA and dye-free. REPLERE products are vegan and never, ever tested on animals.

“I developed REPLERE as a collection of repair products for your skin, ” says REPLERE founder Dr. Debbie Palmer. “They are designed to be applied to the skin first, under your moisturizer, and in weeks, they will make a visible difference in the overall appearance of your skin.”

Now, let’s discuss antioxidants, free radicals and what to do about them:

Q: We’ve heard a lot of talk about antioxidants being good for the body—and the skin. But if I’m a healthy person, and I take my daily supplements, do I really need antioxidants too?

Dr. Palmer: We all need—and use—oxygen to live. After we breathe it in, oxygen travels from our lungs to every cell in our body, helping to turn food into energy.

But oxygen can also have negative effects, whether you’re healthy or not. Body cells are stable when their molecules have a full set of electrons. When oxygen enters the picture, though, they can lose an electron, becoming unstable or oxidized—the same chemical reaction that causes metal to rust. Losing an electron to a passing oxygen molecule converts that cell’s molecule to an unstable, and damaging, atom known as a free radical.

Antioxidants are the body’s main defense against free radicals. Antioxidants—which can be produced in the body or be obtained from food sources or, in the case of the skin, from topical products—donate missing electrons to free radicals and return them to a normal state.

Q: Why are free radicals so bad?

Dr. Palmer: Free radicals attack cells in the body. These attacks change the structure and function of cells and how they work. Cellular damage caused by free radicals is a key part of the aging process—and may even contribute to the development of some of our most prevalent diseases, including coronary artery disease and cancer.

When it comes to the skin, free radicals stimulate the production of enzymes, which break down collagen and elastin—triggering premature aging (wrinkles and sagging skin).

Q: Aren’t free radicals caused by sun exposure?

Dr. Palmer: Yes, free radicals can be created in the body as a result of exposure to ultraviolet light (through sunlight or a tanning booth). But they can also be triggered through environmental exposure to cigarette smoke (breathing in secondhand smoke or even simply having it pass over the skin), car exhaust, factory pollution, pesticides (in our food and water supply), and insecticides (used in the home, our yards, and in the environment around us).

Poor diet (not eating enough fruits and vegetables and/or eating foods high in bad fats) can lead to the production of free radicals—as can lack of sleep and stress. Free radicals can also be formed while digesting large meals—why eating small, frequent meals is best.

Even exercise—though it’s good for you—causes an increase in free radical production. Because of this, it’s important to consume a diet high in antioxidants and to apply antioxidant products daily to your skin.

Q: So what can we do to slow down the production of free radicals in the body?

Dr. Palmer: Keep in mind that the human body has evolved the ability to produce natural antioxidants to protect it from free radical damage. But during times of high oxidative stress (caused by an imbalance between the production of reactive oxygen and a person’s ability to neutralize it and repair the resulting damage), the body’s natural antioxidants are not sufficient to control these free radicals, and excess damage and accelerated aging—even disease—can occur.

Eating the right foods and supplementing regularly serves to augment the body’s natural supply of antioxidants, helping to prevent excess damage.

Coming up next month: To prep for the holidays, we’ll talk about antioxidants & food and why it’s so important to make sure we keep a balance between holiday treats and healthy treats.

September can be a stressful month. And more stress hormones equals increased chance of acne. Replere has Acne Solutions.

September can be a stressful month. For many, September means back to school. For others, it's Fashion Week. For all of us, it means packed schedules, increased work travel, transitioning to fall wardrobes, cleaning out closets, school supply lists (which seem to get longer and longer every year!). The days get shorter, the weather cooler. All of a sudden it takes twice as long to get out the door. The increased stress takes a toll on our skin -- and we're not just talking about fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles!

Stress can lead to increased secretion of stress hormones -- in both adults and kids. And the result? ACNE.

We're here with good news about acne, though. Based on new research, the dermatology community is re-thinking what causes it and how to treat it -- on the inside & on your skin. The secret? Antioxidants, which can be used to treat acne both orally and topically.

Which we think is great news...since antioxidants are our specialty! And since antioxidants are all-natural, healthy, safe and effective, it's a breakthrough method of treatment for acne sufferers of all ages.

So what's new?

Acne vulgaris is a common dermatologic condition. It is characterized by sebum overproduction, follicular hyperkeratinization and inflammation. Over the past year, we have learned that all acne is inflammatory and that patients with acne are under increased skin and systemic oxidative stress from this inflammation. Research has shown that the normal antioxidant defense system becomes overwhelmed in acne patients from this oxidative stress and that antioxidants are consumed at a faster pace, both in the skin and systemically (as seen in lab blood tests). Recent evidence suggests that inflammation might actually precede all of the other steps in what causes acne. As a result, acne sufferers may benefit from treatment with both topical and oral antioxidants to neutralize the inflammation and replace the normal reserves.

Recently, Dr. Palmer introduced the REPLERE® Acne Solutions Kit, after several months of working with her acne-prone patients. Because REPLERE is packed with antioxidants, such as Coffea arabica extract, they are an ideal topical and oral treatment for acne – powerful, all natural and suitable for all skin types.

"My acne patients on both traditional treatments and oral and topical antioxidant treatments are telling me that their acne has never been better. Some have even stopped some of their traditional treatments because they are doing so well. They often tell me that they are addicted to their new antioxidant regimen! I'm pleased that the antioxidant regimen (our new Replere Acne Solutions Kit) is effectively addressing the acne pathway close to the root and in a natural way."

The REPLERE Acne Solutions Kit, $107 (10% off suggested retail price of the three products), comes complete with:

• REPLERE Deep Clean & Clarify Face Wash ($38) contains the powerful antioxidants Coffea arabica extract (berry from the coffee plant), green tea, and vitamins A and E, as well as exfoliating glycolic, salicylic, and azelaic acids. This cleanser not only helps to restore antioxidant levels on the skin (particularly when left on for at least three minutes), but it also exfoliates dead skin cells that can clog pores.

• REPLERE Pore Minimize & Mattify Skin Tonic ($42) a non-drying alcohol-free formula, contains the powerful antioxidants Coffea arabica extract, green tea, grapeseed, and rosemary. It also contains exfoliating glycolic, salicylic, and azelaic acids to cleanse pores and help dissolve oil.

• REPLERE Restore & Fortify Beauty Shooters ($37 for 14, one-ounce single-serve bottles) feed your body—and your skin—from the inside. Each one contains the powerful antioxidants Coffea arabica extract, resveratrol, camu camu (a vitamin C-packed fruit), goji and açai berries, chokeberry, blueberries and pomegranate.

“These products are effective on their own if you have mild acne,” says Dr. Debbie Palmer. “If you have more severe acne, these products work well with any doctor-prescribed acne treatments like oral (and topical) antibiotics and Retin-A. In fact, I’ve seen better results from treatments like this when my patients were also using topical and oral antioxidants.”

REPLERE® products are paraben, fragrance, and dye-free, as well as vegan, cruelty-free and BPA free.

Bye bye Summer! Just like that it's September. Here are some of our transitional mantras -- things that are helping us "fall forward" gracefully, healthfully and beautifully.

Bye bye Summer! Just like that it's September. It happened so fast we didn't get a chance to review August, so let's do it while we can still taste the freshness of the produce, the days are still long(ish) and memories of Labor Day BBQs & bike rides haven't faded away. 

Here are some of our August faves that we thought deserved a re-post. They're kind of our transitional mantras -- things that are helping us "fall forward" gracefully, healthfully and beautifully:

  • Eat organic, minimally processed foods. They reduce the amount of free radicals produced by the body.
  • Our go-to, works with any salad or veggie vinaigrette: Whisk together extra virgin olive oil, rice wine vinegar, along with minced garlic, chives, tarragon, dill, and parsley (or your favorite antioxidant-rich fresh herbs). No salt necessary!
  • Cooking and ordering more fish. Most fish—and even oysters—are chockfull of omega-3 fatty acids, which help with circulation, and the antioxidant zinc, which helps with new cell production.
  • Ramp up your daily skin maintenance with a few simple rituals:

    • Keep a bottle of alcohol-free REPLERE Pore Minimize & Mattify Skin Tonic at your desk; then just use a cotton pad to swipe over skin. It cleans pores, exfoliates, and reduces the appearance of shine.
    • Layer your daily sunscreen over REPLERE Protect & Rejuvenate Day Lotion, which contains UV-protective antioxidants Coffea arabica extract, pine bark, goji and açai berries, grapeseed, pomegranate, green tea, and vitamins A, C & E.
    • Take a Beauty Shooter daily to get your recommended dose of antioxidants. So easy!
  • Try to get some sleep! A new study found that people who don't get enough sleep are more likely to have poorer skin health and skin that ages more quickly. The reason, researchers theorize: Poor sleepers hold onto inflammation longer.
  • "I'm one workout away from a great mood." Agree? Yes, we do!  

Do YOU have any Fall mantras you want to share with us? Post them in the Comments section and we'll re-post to the Replere Facebook Page

REPLERE is packed with antioxidants to not only help repair but also to protect. We've got a few tips to help battle the summer sun & save your skin.

Whether you are at the beach, out for a bike ride, swimming in the lake, playing tennis, hiking the trails or walking the dog, you are undoubtedly in the sun at some point this summer. We'll take your word for it that you are covered in UVA/UVB protection from head to toe, including a hat! Right? Great. 

But even the most dedicated SPF wearers need a little boost of protection, a little help recovering from a long day in the sun or even a quick way to get our daily antioxidants to fight off free radicals (i.e., those pesky agents of aging). 

Dr. Debbie Palmer created Replere with all of this in mind. She sees patients every day who suffer from too much sun time - intentional or not (hey, a little vitamin D is good for all of us). REPLERE is packed with antioxidants to not only help repair but also to protect.

Here are a few tips to help battle the summer sun:

  • Heading out for the weekend? Be sure to pack sunscreen—and your REPLERE Protect & Rejuvenate Day Lotion. You need to layer both on your skin to get full protection from the sun's free-radical-triggering UV rays.
  • Pack your REPLERE Pore Minimize & Mattify Skin Tonic in your beach bag—to reduce shine and fortify your skin with the antioxidants Coffea arabica extract, green tea, grapeseed, and rosemary.
  • Be sure to apply REPLERE Repair & Replenish Night Crème each night before going to sleep. It helps to repair free radical damage from daily exposure to the sun's UV rays.
  • Did you know? A single person produces an average of 5 pounds of free radicals each year from breathing air and digesting food. Gues what? it's super easy to combat those free radicals....take your REPLERE Restore & Fortify Beauty Shooters every day! One serving a day delivers your recommended daily dose of antioxidants, including: Coffea arabica extract, resveratrol, camu camu (a vitamin C-packed fruit), goji & açai berries, chokeberry, blueberries and pomegranate. DELISH!

And while you are enjoying all this outdoor time, take along a healthy snack.

Here's a suggestion...Enjoy! xo

Dr. Palmer is one of only several hundred dermatologists in the country also trained in osteopathic medicine...

Dr. Palmer is one of only several hundred dermatologists in the country also trained in osteopathic medicine—a holistic philosophy and approach that relates each part of the body to the entire system. According to Dr. Palmer, “You cannot—and should not—treat a problem the skin is experiencing without looking at the condition of the entire body.” What you eat, your lifestyle, the amount of sleep you get -- these are all important factors that relate to your skin and its overall healthy appearance. That's why we talk so much about antioxidants in food: an important factor to keep your skin glowing and radiant. Just like applying antioxidants to your skin daily (try Replere!). 

We could go on and on about antioxidants and healthy foods/habits for healthy skin, so we've picked our five favorites this month to highlight:

  • Good rule of thumb: Eat at least 5 servings of antioxidant- and nutrient-rich fresh fruits and veggies every day. 
  • Fruits and vegetables treated with pesticides, as well as processed foods, can generate free radicals in the body. Eating organic, minimally processed foods reduces the amount of free radicals produced by the body.
  • Did you know that just one tablespoon of fresh oregano has the same antioxidant activity as a medium-sized apple? Be sure to add fresh oregano (or dill, thyme, or rosemary) to your dishes for a free-radical-fighting punch!
  • Snack on a nectarine. It's high in the disease-busting antioxidants beta-carotene, vitamin C, and lutein.
  • Try adding papaya to your summer berry smoothies. Like berries, it's chockfull of antioxidants. (For the most antioxidants, make sure the fruit is fully ripened before eating.)
  • OK, one extra -- because it's so yummy: Dr. Debbie Palmer's recipe for Antioxidant-Rich Stuffed Grape Leaves: Mix 1 lb. hamburger with finely chopped onions, 1 cup rice, finely chopped parsley, peeled/stewed tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Place a small amount of the mixture in the center of a grape leaf, and wrap. Place leaves in Dutch oven and fill half way with water. Add a few tablespoons of olive oil and lemon juice. Place a plate on leaves to weigh them down. Boil about 45 minutes. Serve with cool yogurt dip (mince one small garlic clove with 2 cups organic whole milk yogurt).

We'd like to hear from you....Send us YOUR favorite healthy eating tips or recipes! You can post them in the comments section below.

Have a great July!

How do I stay looking young?

As a dermatologist, Dr. Palmer has a lot of patients who come into her office with a specific goal, "How do I stay looking young?" I mean, we ALL want to stay looking like we are 25, right? Yes, there are state of the art, safe and effective procedures for patients at the office. And of course, you can use Replere skincare - and drink your Beauty Shooter daily - but Dr. Palmer also gives her patients a few lifestyle tips to help "stay young." Here are a few of our faves:

  • Don't smoke—and try to avoid secondhand smoke. Smoke exposure, both on our skin and breathing it in, creates free-radical production that leads to the signs of aging. 
  • Floss every day! Good oral hygiene (which includes brushing and flossing) prevents inflammation of the gums (gingivitis), which can deplete oral antioxidants and lead to heart disease.
  • Worry less, smile more! The stress caused by worrying leads to free radical production—and aging!
  • Sleep at least 6 hours a night. Sleeping decreases stress hormones (which decreases free-radical production) and allows the body to repair itself.
  • Take time out for your family. Relaxing with loved ones is a great way to de-stress—and decrease the production of free radicals.

We think this quote from Steve Maraboli sums it up: "Make the choice to embrace this day. Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the ghost of yesterday or the "To-Do" list of tomorrow! It’s inspiring to see all the wonderfully amazing things that can happen in a day in which you participate." 

Happy Summer everyone!

April can be such a tease. It gets warm, then it snows (hellllloooo Denver). We begin to see the burst of blooms, only to have it dip down to 30 degrees at night (ouch, poor flowers!). So while we may want to rush to summer, let's just stop, appreciate "spring" for what it is this year, and take a moment to reflect. In that spirit, here are a few of our favorite posts and projects from the past few weeks:

  • REPLERE founder, Dr. Debbie Palmer, is one of only a few dermatologists in the country also trained in osteopathic medicine. This is a holistic philosophy and approach that relates each part of the body to the entire system. According to Dr. Palmer: “You cannot—and should not—treat a problem the skin is experiencing without looking at the condition of the entire body.” Want to know more about Dr. Palmer's background and philosophy? Click here.
  • A study done by the USDA found that artichokes have more antioxidants than any other vegetable. Some of the powerful antioxidants in artichokes are quercetin, rutin, anthocyanins, cynarin, luteolin, and silymarin. Want to know more about antioxidants? We're pinning about them here.
  • Do you suffer from dark circles around your eyes? One solution: apply Replere Lighten & Firm Eye Serum, with hyaluronic acid and olive oil and the antioxidants Coffea arabica extract, pine bark, goji and açai berries, grapeseed, pomegranate, green tea, and vitamins A, C, & E. Whew! That's a lot of potent ingredients!
  • Mother's Day is fast approaching and we've got a DEAL JUST FOR YOU....Have you gotten any of the moms in your life a gift? Try the gift of glow -- yes, glow! Try our Replere Essentials: Dr. Palmer's three key product picks for new Replere users. Hurry...we're offering 15% off any Replere purchase through 4/12. Enter promo code MOM13 at checkout.
