My Favorite Product and Why: In this era of anti-aging skin care, there are really just a few standout ingredients that have real, undisputed benefits. One such ingredient is L-ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C. In the proper concentration and formulation, this powerful antioxidant can address many skin issues, including protection from our environment. My absolute favorite vitamin C product is the Obagi® Professional-C™ Serum. Available in concentrations of 10%, 15% and 20%, there is a formulation to benefit every skin type. What’s great is this product is easily absorbed into the skin and, thus effective in providing protection from the sun and other free radicals, boosting the effectiveness of sunscreen and improving the appearance of sun damaged skin, including fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture, and hyperpigmentation. This “liquid gold” also stimulates collagen production, reduces inflammation, provides moisture and enhances the overall effectiveness of other skincare products. Applied once a day, in the morning after cleansing, the Obagi Professional-C Serum provides my skin with the protection it needs and has much improved the appearance of my fine lines and uneven skin tone. I never leave home without applying this all-in-one serum and would love to talk with YOU about the right vitamin C formulation for your skin concerns and needs!
Favorite Hobby: I am always on the search for new ways to incorporate exercise into my lifestyle and have fun while doing it. As a lover of all things outdoors, one of my absolute favorite ways to exercise is hiking. Hiking incorporates my need for physical stimulation, my love of the outdoors and time to reflect on my life. For me, hiking also provides a sense of accomplishment when I have finally reached my destination. I mostly enjoy trail and mountain hiking because it always ends up being an adventure! Discovering new trails and planning how to get from point A to point B often leads to many other discoveries, such as plants and flowers I have never seen and even historical artifacts like arrowheads and other rudimentary implements.
My Favorite Splurge: Without a doubt, my favorite guilty pleasure is craft wine tasting and collecting. I love to visit different wineries and sample the wines that I can also watch them make on site. I have completed the Alabama Wine Trail, including an authentic grape stomping at Morgan Creek Winery and a train excursion through the vineyards at Ozan Winery. After each visit, I am sure to purchase at least one wine from each of the wineries to add to my collection or enjoy at home. I have recently started the Florida wine trail and, of course, Napa Valley, California is on my bucket list!
