Anne Gillam is an international best-selling author, consultant, and commercial lines executive producer at Southgroup Insurance Gulf Coast, as well as an active leader in her faith-based community — championing many causes close to her heart. She also has a reputation for looking fabulous, which is where these favorite, go-to products come in:
TAKE THE DAY OFF BEFORE GOING TO BED
Most makeup is made of oily substances, so when it stays on overnight, your complexion will appear dull. Your skin will look older, feel dry and become irritated. Plus, clogged pores cause more acne and blackhead breakouts. I use Clinique Take the Day Off Makeup Remover to take off my makeup before I wash my face.
‘LEAVES SKIN HEALTHY AND FRESH’
I use Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Multi Action Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask morning and night as a daily cleanser. It gently removes makeup and other impurities without drying. It also unclogs pores and leaves skin healthy and fresh.
A SCRUB THAT ‘POLISHES AND GENTLY LIFTS’
Why do we need to exfoliate? It helps stimulate collagen production to improve skin’s texture. It also unclogs pores, evens tone and keeps our skin looking plump, tight and young. I use Young Living Satin Facial Scrub Mint. This product polishes and gently lifts while removing dry, dead skin cells.
BANISH UNDER EYE CIRCLES AND PUFFY EYES
Dark undereye circles and puffy eyes typically result from being tired and are a normal part of aging. I use Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex, an eye cream that brightens all around the eyes and targets lines and signs of aging.
GIVES ME FIRMER, HEALTHIER SKIN’
I use VC Anti-Aging Serum religiously on my face and neck. It’s 77 percent organic and 98 percent natural. It’s weightless and not greasy. It repairs sun damage, reduces fine lines and gives me firmer, healthier skin. This serum contains highly concentrated levels of anti-aging ingredients that are not usually found in moisturizers.
MOISTURIZER THAT NOURISHES, ‘MAKES MY MAKEUP LOOK FLAWLESS’
I use Estee Lauder Resilience Multi Effect Moisturizer in the morning and evening. It nourishes my skin and reduces my fine lines. It protects my skin from dryness and makes my makeup look flawless. With an SPF 15, it also helps protect against sun damage.
‘LIGHTWEIGHT AND NOT- OILY’ SUNSCREEN
I use sunscreen daily to help me prevent skin cancer and premature aging. I use PCA Skin SPF 45 and love this product because it’s lightweight and not oily.
SOLUTION FOR STRONG, THICK HAIR
As we age, our hair tends to thin. I use Biotin Hair Growth Serum B7 to prevent thinning. It facilitates faster hair growth and strong, thick hair.
REBUILD AND FORTIFY YOUR HAIR
I color my hair often and use a lot of chemicals, and Olaplex Shampoo and Conditioner help rebuild and repair damage. It reinforces my hair’s strength and structure.
