Dr. Annette Tobia

boomer beauty, life after 50, makeup for 50+ women, over 50

I don’t know about you, but I’ve tried many facial moisturizers over the years. Most over-promise and undeliver. With my sixty-something lines, wrinkles, crepey skin, and UV damage, I need a solution that’s the real deal and that won’t cause breakouts for my sensitive skin. BTW I still maintain my philosophy to age gracefully, be optimistic about the future, and keep my chin up… so my neck stays forever wrinkle-free…ha, ha, ha! That’s why I was excited when the PR team from MEG 21 reached out and asked if I wanted a sample of what I’ll deem a miracle moisturizer.

I agreed and about two months ago started my twice daily regime of applying MEG 21 Smooth Radiance Advanced Formula Anti-Aging Neck Cream to my face and neck. At first it went on much thicker than my old moisturizers. As I adjusted to the thickness, my face felt more hydrated. When my container was empty I went back to my old drugstore brand. My face felt dry again.*

“How’s my skin?” I said to my esthetician D during my last facial. “I’ve been using MEG 21. Are you familiar with that moisturizer?” “Your skin looks good,” said D. “Sure I know MEG 21. I use and sell the line . The products are great and do make a difference. It’s the Supplamine®.”

An interview with Dr. Annette Tobia

Wanting to know more about Supplamine® and the MEG 21 women-founded and led-business, I was delighted when its Founder Dr. Annette Tobia agreed to an interview.

Dr. Tobia holds a Ph.D. in cell biology from New York University and conducted post-doctoral research at Rockefeller University in New York City. She is a widely published scientist, whose research findings have appeared in peer-reviewed medical journals and in health and beauty industry publications. As the inventor of Supplamine® and founder of MEG 21, Dr. Tobia has realized her life-long goal of bringing health and beauty, along with a sense of well-being, to women and men around the globe.

Youthful skin at any age

Here are excerpts from the interview. Be sure to read all the way down because the MEG 21 team is kindly supplying a full-size jar of MEG 21 Smooth Radiance Advanced Formula (value $140 – USA residents only) for my Feb giveaway.  Yep, MEG 21 is expensive. I did miss my MEG 21 when I used it all up. So I bought a jar from my esthetician who happened to be having a holiday sale. Know that one jar lasts a long time since the pump is a very efficient dispenser. Note: I’m still working the jar from early December, that’s almost two months.

What makes MEG 21 with Supplamine® different from other moisturizers?

Dr. Tobia: “MEG 21 products are not only super-charged moisturizers. They were developed not by marketers but by scientists working on medical research. They go far beyond effectively and safely hydrating skin—even mature skinto smooth the complexion, reverse wrinkles, fine lines, crepiness, sagging, and dryness. They give skin that youthful, radiant glow.

Based on breakthrough clinical research, MEG 21 skin treatments deliver visible results in 28 days and are dermatologist certified. And, unlike many other skin care products, MEG 21 doesn’t strip and irritate skin to make new cells grow. We soothe and repair existing skin without irritating it.”

Tell me how MEG 21 was developed and some of the results from your research.

Dr. Tobia: “MEG 21 products were born out of research that I and other top scientists were conducting at a renowned medical center in Philadelphia. They contain Supplamine®, a unique combination of ingredients that attack the toxic aging processes in skin. It’s a technology that reverses skin aging, has been proven safe and effective in 9 independent clinical trials, is recommended by dermatologists and plastic surgeons, and is used by skincare professionals internationally.

MEG 21 with Supplamine® has been clinically proven to restore skin’s youthful appearance, smoothness, and firmness, increase moisture, and even tone.”

MEG 21 product line

MEG 21 brand includes a variety of age-renewing, skin-beautifying products

What type of products are in the MEG 21 lineup? (BTW, I thought your packaging for the MEG 21 moisturizer is unique, with its pump dispenser. Why did you decide on that type of delivery?)

Dr. Tobia: “In developing the MEG 21 anti-aging line, we asked: Where in the human body do the most visible signs of aging appear? That question led us to a laser-like focus on enhancing the health and beauty of the face, neck and décolleté, eyes, and hands.

We offer 10 products, all formulated with age-reversing Supplamine®, infused with proven botanicals, and clinically tested to safely address each of these areas.

For example, our Smooth Radiance Advanced Formula smooths wrinkles and creping on the neck and décolleté, but is also recommended for mature faces. OuSmooth Radiance Face Treatment is a best-in-class moisturizer and anti-wrinkling treatment.

Both products are packaged in a state-of-the art protective airless pump jar that dispenses the perfect amount per application and avoids atmospheric and finger-in-the cream contamination. Our products have been applied by hundreds of women from China to New Zealand to Mexico. They’re for all skin types and are also effective for men!”

Since menopause, my skin is even drier than before. And since I turned 60 I feel like I am getting more sagging, wrinkles and age/sun spots on my face, neck, and hands every day. As a skin-aging expert, what would you recommend?

Dr. Tobia: “I can relate! I was a 60-year-old scientist when I noticed the same sagging, wrinkling, and age spots! Our lab was in the early stages of developing Supplamine®, so I eagerly became a guinea pig for MEG 21 Advanced Formula.

Within a month, my face became noticeably smooth, firm, and moisturized. Fine lines and dark spots disappeared. For more mature and age-challenged skin, I recommend applying MEG 21 Advanced Formula to your face and neck twice daily, after applying MEG 21 Moisturizing Toner and MEG 21 Cleanser. And I’d also recommend our Eye Treatment, which is specially formulated to brighten and “depuff” the area around the eyes.”

What are the best ways for women over 50 to maintain good skin care as we age?

Dr. Tobia: “My treatment recommendation depends on skin type and condition. For women with fair or light-toned skin, which is prone to fine lines, wrinkles, and dryness, apply MEG 21 Face Treatment twice daily. It’s the best moisturizer and anti-wrinkling cream anywhere. It’s always best to begin your beauty regimen with MEG 21 Cleanser and Moisturizing Toner+.” Ooh, ooh, ooh, I might have to try these two too!

How can people purchase MEG 21 products?

Dr. Tobia: “There are lots of options. Many dermatologists carry MEG 21 with Supplamine® products, as do leading medi and beauty spas. You can also visit www.meg21.com to purchase from our website.”

Anything else you would like to share?

Dr. Tobia: “We’re woman founded and run. I founded MEG 21 more than 20 years ago and have been CEO ever since. Our president is also a woman. At the beginning, our products were distributed exclusively to dermatologists and plastic surgeons. A percentage of our sales has always supported cancer research. All our products are manufactured in the USA.

I am a life-long scientist, with a PhD. After inventing Supplamine®, my focus did not shift from science to beauty. Rather, the effectiveness of Supplamine® demonstrates that science and beauty are perfect partners.”

Thank you Dr. Tobia for all your skincare advice.
