We were delighted to host Dr. Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, one of the most well-respected dermatologists in the country, for a conversation about all aspects of skincare. She shared so much useful information with us that we decided to capture it in a series of video interviews for you!

In this video interview, she tells us about the three most effective classes of anti-aging ingredients:

  • Peptides
  • DNA repair
  • Global anti-agers

 We hope you enjoy this rare opportunity to learn from Dr. Macrene — her unique scientific and clinical background makes her a master at identifying and evaluating the effect of active molecules on aging skin.
