What is/are your favorite Aveda product(s)?
That is like asking to choose your favorite child – I don’t think I can do it! If I was pressed to say what is my favorite product right now, though, it would be the Vitamin C Complex. The anti-aging properties of Vitamin C are incredible and I was so happy when Aveda introduced this into our toolbox of products.

What is your “beauty philosophy”?
It comes from within.
What piece of advice would you give to people before they buy skincare products?
Know your ingredients and know the integrity of the skincare line.
