Replete Skincare Story of becoming.

As a woman my skin is of most importance to me and make me feel confident or not.

I realized at an early age that common ways of the cosmetic industry was not nurturing what we have but constantly challenges it with irritant and chemical peel thinning skin depriving collagen production of the skin and making it look like the aftermath of burndown.

No face ever matched the skin of the body on the beach when on French Riviera.

I realized that only way we have young looking and fully functional skin is when we nurture the skin according to natural cycles of function that we can support with nutrients and not interfere with our connection with the Sun and Moon Cycles. That is exactly how I recovered my skin from ravages of lime disease to have back again fully functional healthy skin on my body and face and hands. No doctor has any suggestions for me how to repair the skin that looked like a burn victim, so I went on the path of discovery and ultimately formulating Replete Skincare from only what God created into the bottle and nothing else.

I learned what and when we need specific nutrients to satisfy the need of specific skin function as an organ of our body. Then I went around the world collecting them from five continents. I looked back at Julius Cesar care for his army and animals and Cleopatras habits of self-care. I made Cesar formula a base for my Intense Recovery oil then added more form another continent to attend to every aspect needed to complete the recovery of the cells. Cleopatra gently self-care of nurturing as my guide to being gentle with what we have. Mayan understanding of how nature works with harmony and Replete was born. www.repleteskincare.com

FINALLY SHOES THAT FIT THE FEET

The truth about our feet is that when we do not wear shoes they get wider because they can. Given we have been at home for many month not wearing pretty shoes and chances are our feet became wider than before stay at home order.

Many states now and countries are opening up and returning to activities outside of our homes and families, so the shoe need to fit the feet. Here is the way to adopt what you already have to be comfortable wearing with expanded size of your feet without braking the bank or living with pain at the end of the day.

Formé is the first and only shoe shaper that safely stretches shoes up to a half a size, eliminating the pain that occurs when the toe box gets tight as the day wears on – awesome for women with different sized feet! Formé is made by women FOR WOMEN and can make every pair of shoes in your closet more comfortable and your feet healthier and happier! You can customize the amount of stretch and they work in any shoes (heels, flats, boots, sandals, sneakers) of any material (leather, fabric, even synthetic). Or use this sleek, lightweight device simply to help shoes keep their shape when you’re not wearing them.  Formé shapers give new life to shoes 1) you love but don’t wear because they never fit quite right, 2) become uncomfortable after just a short time on the feet. Sold on www.formeconfomfort.comamazon.com and www.thegrommet.com

Maureen Stockton, founder of Formé, the first women’s shoe shaper and stretcher, is a Los Angeles native and UCLA graduate with a successful 25+-year track record as an entrepreneur. Her passion for entrepreneurship and invention were sparked during her college years at UCLA, where she founded the Undergraduate Entrepreneurs Association, and was recognized by the university’s economics department as “Leader of the Year.” Following her graduation with a dual degree in Business Administration and Political Science, she began her corporate career in commercial real estate, directing marketing and leasing for several premier office buildings in Chicago and Los Angeles.

Stockton continued honing her marketing skills at JAKKS Pacific Inc., the publicly traded toy company. There she created $250MM+ in new revenue through innovative products and new retail merchandising techniques. Subsequently, she created and launched a new category of children’s holiday decorating products under the Disney Princess and Barbie brands. Collectively, these products generated $20MM+ in retail sales, and earned her “Vendor of the Year” recognition from Toys “R” Us.

In 2018, after three years of research and development, Stockton
launched the Formé shoe shaper, a consumer product she
conceived to address women’s desire for enhanced shoe comfort
and improved shoe wardrobe maintenance. An epiphany led to the
process: Stockton was dressing for an evening business event and
noticed to her dismay that the “power pumps” she had chosen to
wear were intolerably tight around the toes. In that moment she glanced over at her husband while he removed old-fashioned wooden shoe trees from his shoes asking why he used them. He replied, “my shoes are always comfortable when I slip them on.” She wanted the same for herself, so she ordered some in an attempt to stretch her own shoes, but the device – designed for the heartier leathers used in men’s footwear – had too much force and ruined her shoes. She realized that women needed a shoe shaper of their own. Today, her unique and patented design gives new life to uncomfortable shoes long relegated to the back of the closet, offering customizable stretching options. It also keeps shoes in perfect shape, not only prolonging wear but also increasing resale value.

Beyond her commercial ventures, Stockton also lends her talent and inspiration to several philanthropic causes, serving on the boards of several charities including, St. Anne’s, an LA- based organization that helps vulnerable children and women rebuild their lives. She is also a member of the UCLA Foundation Board, Member of the UCLA Chancellor’s Oversight Committee for UCLA Technology Development, the Getty Museum’s Conservation Institute Council, and Wake Forest University’s Innovation, Creativity and Entrepreneur Board of Advisors. Stockton was previously on the boards of the Otis College of Art and Design and the Toy Industry Association.

Stockton and her husband Bryan have four children and reside in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles.

Honey for deep sleep repairs

One of the most important and yet sometimes not know ways to get a good night sleep in addition to the afternoon sun rays is a teaspoon of honey before turning off the light when going to sleep.

This is a great way to fall asleep fast without taking any pills. Honey has been used to heal wounds that just would not close on people and animals.

Marine Mammal centre is one of the places that value honey as a go-to after all else fails to heal injuries that sea creatures have after rescuing them from the sea or the beaches.

Cleopatra used honey to heal her scratches from walking on the ground.

Bears are using honey as the source to survive long winters and so do the bees and wolfs.

Now Replete offers travel size iBio Seasonal Honey that can go with you anywhere you are and give you a beauty night sleep according to the season.

There are choices of flavor such as roses, lavender or rosemary from private garden of Replete founder. What a beautiful way to share the harvest with each other during this isolating times of Covid-19.

Summer equinox is coming marking the time of change

Replete Your Skin in Summer Heat

Summer is the season for the skin to interact with natural elements with little clothes coverage. The warmer weather provides a comfortable environment to expose the skin.  The summer choice of fabrics to wear are lighter and breathable weaves.

Our skin was designed to interact with elements during the summer season, so our job is to support it and not interfere with it.

Now it is the time to make sure that a lot of Intense Recovery Oil is applied nightly under Circadian 365 Night Cream. It will assist in the fast turnover of cells that were exposed to elements. This is a good time to spend more time in the water as natural hydration and cooling assistance in addition to Rejuvenating Mist in the afternoon to extend our ability to defend the elements such as free radicals and temperature changes between outdoors and AC. The Summer Serum has building blocks to the resilience of the skin in its formulation of proprietary Seasonal ActivesTM, it has outperformed SPF 80 according to our clients and delivers all needed vitamins from the sun such as Vitamin D.

The primary difference between Replete and other skincare products is the fact the Replete understands and follows skin’s natural needs based on its assigned functions.  No other product line does this! Replete is food for the skin, providing building blocks for collagen and density of the skin and steadily increasing skin quality with time. They are true Anti-aging products.

This is in contrary to skin cares that are promoting self-defense response of the skin as a collagen building tool. This in fact depletes skin resources at a faster pace, therefore aging it. All Retina products are stripping the skin layers and making them more vulnerable and thinner in density- this is why the recommendation is to stay indoors and avoid sunlight.

In truth, a certain amount of sunlight promotes collagen replacement and delivers needed vitamins to our skin and system as intended. This is the more natural way to stimulate self-defense mechanism of the skin within natural functions already programed as part of our existence, including cell replacement. The key is to be outdoors after 3 pm and monitor direct exposure with clothes, hats past 30 min, or an umbrella. This, too, will provide enough sunlight to maintain bone structure density and keep your face’s youthful contour, with high cheeks and young eye-frames. So much has not been told to people when pushing sunscreen into everyday life, including the newborns getting covered with chemicals that can lead to soft bones and other developmental issues.  Then, if you do overexpose, you can use Intense Recovery assuring easier recovery. We are meant to live during the day and sleep at night. Why, then, are we fearing what is supposed to be our time to fully function?

Replete discovered natural secrets of how to build resilient skin over time- no instant gratification here- as we have been depleting the skin with creams that were irritating and stripping the layers for years!

Replete delivers visible changes to youthful skin within a couple of weeks for others to see, and total rebalancing of the skin function throughout all seasons.

The summer serum is filled with Seasonal ActivesTM seaweeds and clays that builds the resistance within the skin cells. Circadian 365 Day Cream gives Circadian ActivesTM for a lift to the skin and helping the pigment to distribute evenly, thus helping to lower the formation of age spots.  Rejuvenation Mist delivers the needed hydrations and minerals in the afternoon giving the day cream and other products lift for the skin. Finally, 365 Night Cream Circadian ActivesTM work on detoxing, replacing ,and rebuilding the cells from day’s work. All products work in unison with the body’s largest organ- the skin.

A few interesting facts when using Replete:

During the first week, you will expel all of the toxins that were repressed in the form of pimples under the skin. Then, you will never see them again.

Apply only the amount of Replete formulas that is absorbed by the skin. If you have some extra left on the surface, it means you are using too much!

The Intense Recovery oil is in fact only 1% oil and 99% bio-active herbal extract. It absorbs immediately into the skin, relieving sunburn almost on contact.

All products are fast absorbing, so within a minute of applying, you can get dressed without delay.

All Replete formulas are highly concentrated nutrients in proprietary combinations as Circadian ActivesTM and Seasonal ActivesTM.

$210.81 Billion markets to be healthy, wealthy and fabulous.

Alternative health and complementary market to be worth $210.81 Billion in 2026

How did we arrive at the decision to turn back to nature for our strength and healthy joyful life?

Do you remember the phenomena of Oprah Winfrey show with 35 Million viewers as highest ever recorded? Think again today Dr Nandi show has over 85 Million viewers and climbing due to his content on alternative health, complementary treatments and food suggestions for specific conditions.

Our direction of focus has been turned away from pharmaceuticals after repeated failures of promised cures. More and more chronic patients fear escalated doses of diabetic insulin just to maintain safe levels of glucose as a means to stay alive. They have come to feel that the end is near unless they change something in their own power to change.

People now want to have sex until they die and be attractive to be desired until they die. Life never looked more promising for this to be the reality as it is now.

The self-help section of books is ever-growing and looking for the source of illness is at the front lines for those that are taking their wellbeing into their own hand by changing habits, believes from the newly acquired information.

Health care is changing to accommodate preventive measures as part of the reward program in some states. Finding that preventing actions yield avoidance of recurring problems.

In the old days, Chinese doctors would be paid by the patient for keeping them healthy and stopped paying when they got sick under their watchful eyes and advice. Maybe we are turning to this too with so preventive benefits of vitamins, massages that improve circulation in the body prompting toxins to depart and not linger.

One thing is certain we are going back to recognizing that synthetics and disconnect from our natural clock hurt us and not heal nor keep us from getting sick.

This is a very organic and individual movement we are observing solely promoted by the desire for better health and happier life until the last breath we take.

Herbal remedies, many different schools of diets and vitamin supplements are leading the headlines in the news. Seminars and retreats teaching individuals how to reconnect with nature and its benefits are most desired topics and searches online. Meditation is no longer for yogis but for CEO’s and presidents to lead with a cool and composed mind.

We are now in the era of self-empowerment from shared information on research and personal stories.

The actions people take are led by choices not limitations, after all, we are managers of our lives.
