Mindful Beauty with Dr. Debbie Palmer

“Beauty is not in the face, beauty is a light in the heart” Kahlil Gibran

What do you consider beautiful? Dermatologist and author, Dr. Debbie Palmer, talks with hosts Andrea Smith and Maggie Campione about her book Mindful Beauty, the all-natural antioxidant skincare collection that she created, Replere, and about combining her work as a medical doctor and osteopath to discover root causes of skin ailments. She gives a glimpse of her day as a busy mom and physician and encourages short spurts of exercise, stress relief, and forest bathing to eliminate stress and maintain balance. The hosts read the chapter, The Gift of Beauty, from Cynthia Brian’s book, Be the Star You Are! 99 Gifts for Living, Laughing, Loving, and Learning to Make a Difference that points to the fact that beauty evolves from the inside out. In the final segment, Andrea and Maggie compare tips on make-up and skin care that as teens they are attracted to and enjoy experimenting with. When our souls, hearts, and minds are beautiful, that beauty will be expressed on the exterior where others can sense it. Authentic beauty, then, is our inner radiance shining outward. And when we have inner beauty, it opens our hearts to see more clearly, allowing us to observe the beauty all around us. Beauty is everywhere—in people and nature, in art, architecture, music, food, ideas, and in the world in general.


Dr. Debbie Palmer is a board-certified dermatologist with more than 19 years of experience. She is the Medical Director and Co-Founder of Dermatology Associates of New York, in Harrison. She specializes in medical dermatology, cosmetic dermatology, and laser surgery and has been recognized as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor.

Dr Palmer believes that health and beauty are linked and a that a balance in life is key to looking younger and having harmony with your body, mind, and soul.

Widely respected for her expertise, Dr. Palmer has had her work published in leading medical journals and has lectured nationally and internationally about the benefits of healthy eating, anti-aging, and antioxidants and how they can improve the health and appearance of your skin.

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. “You cannot and should not treat a problem the skin is experiencing without looking at the condition of the entire body,” explains Dr. Palmer.

Dr. Palmer completed her internship in Internal Medicine at Northside Hospital and Heart Institute and completed her residency in dermatology at St. Barnabas Hospital in Bronx, New York.
