Meet Dr Macrene of 37 Actives

Hi SkinStore customers! To introduce myself, I’m Dr Macrene Alexiades. I’m known as the Derm-Scientist®, as a dermatologist and scientist with three degrees from Harvard, a BA, MD and PhD in Genetics. I have a highly rewarding and busy dermatology practice in Manhattan, and also work as a scientist studying and formulating the most potent anti-aging ingredients on the market in my Dr. Macrene 37 Actives line.

My career has spanned over 2 decades and includes a broad background in basic science research, plant molecular biology research and stem cell biology, as well as bioengineering and molecular biology. On the dermatology side, I am a laser specialist and conduct clinical and FDA trials in my clinic on Park Avenue. 37 Actives is my brainchild that harnesses the best science and best health for the individual and the environment, by using USDA certified organically grown plant actives in glass packaging while free of harmful ingredients.

Dr Macrene’s Ultimate Christmas Beauty Tip:

Aromatherapy. I believe that the evolution of Christmas traditions, bringing evergreens into the home and filling the air with scents of pine and cinnamon, serve a greater purpose. This includes providing healthy and spirited antioxidants and other uplifting compounds into our air and bloodstreams. So, make sure to bring your tree home and fill the home with holly. Keep your greens well hydrated and they will reward you! Inhaling these wonderful scents provides your lungs with healthy anti-aging compounds and mood lifting scents.

And, what better to do on Christmas Eve to prepare for the celebrations than to take a hot bath in organic lavender, with candles lit to set the mood?
