On October 26 I was invited to meet Dr. Macrene Alexiades for an exclusive interview about her One-Step Skincare solution products 37 Actives at Chemistry.
Dr.Macrene Alexiades holds three Harvard degrees, and runs clinical and laboratory studies focusing on anti-aging skin care, acne, skin cancer, and lasers. She is located in Park Ave, New York where she practices dermatology and laser surgery. Dr. Macrane has been featured in Vogue, ELLE, The New York Times and many more! It was such an honor being able to speak with her, you can learn more about her Biography on her website.
What is 37 Actives?
It is an answer to a prayer according to Dr. Macrene who says her patients where coming in with bags full of products totally overwhelmed by all the branded anti-aging products looking for someone of her expertise and level of understanding of both basic science and clinical dermatology to tell them which ingredients are the most proven to work for anti-aging.
People would need to apply at least 10 to 15 different products to cover all the basics of anti-aging on the skin that’s when the idea of 37 actives was born. Dr.Macrene knew she was ideally suited to bridge the gap between lab and the clinical aspect of dermatology. 37 actives is a one step skin care solution that originally had 37 active ingredients in it, but now has up to 50! It covers all your categories of skin-aging in one container that remains active and stable 3 years after opening it.
37 actives is a line of 5 products.
The anti-aging cleansing treatment is formulated to both cleanse and treat your skin. It is USDA certified with organically grown extracts containing vitamins B5, B3, and B7 all help regulate and hydrate the skin.
The anti-aging neck and décolletage treatment targets elasticity & reverse sun damage common to the delicate areas of the neck & chest.
The anti-aging treatment foundation comes in three different shades: Light Medium, and dark. It is a very lightweight foundation that provides full coverage, it is designed to avoid breakouts. Dr. Macrene applied some of the medium shade on my hand and I loved how the foundation had a nice golden glow to it.
Thank you so much to Dr. Macrene for taking the time to share information, I could tell she was really excited and proud to share her products. please feel free to check out her website to learn more about her and 37 actives HERE.
I think it is good to start taking care of your skin at a young age. A great tip Dr. Macrene shared for us is “Please when it starts to get cold and dry DO NOT put hot water on the face, even if its impossible to avoid. The face gets really red and it breaks out. when washing your face rinse with cool water really quick, pat dry and lock in hydration.”
