We're keeping the glow going with another supernova spotlight on a woman owning the ground she stands on and the skin she lives in. Discover what makes Sam tick and her go-to-Glow routine.  


DAY JOB: Co-founder of Roots + Ardor

GLOW-GETTER ROUTINE: I’m an avid Oxygen Facial gal. Bring on the O2! I also am dipping my toes (and fine lines) into micro-needling. It’s a journey.

Oh, and occasionally Amanda shaves my moustache (derma-planing.)

WHAT GETS YOU EXCITED ABOUT GETTING OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING: Depending on the day it’s a beautiful, chaotic mixture of my business, my drive to make a mark, and my chocolate lab Murphy. Who literally forces me out of bed every morning so maybe that’s cheating.

WHAT'S SOMETHING YOU WANT TO CONQUER IN 2018: My entrepreneurial anxiety. The only thing constant about starting a business is change. I’d like to ground myself in that uncertainty and accept the highs and lows more openly.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR 15-YEAR-OLD SELF: Be brave, this is just the beginning.

Also, you don’t look great THAT tanned.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE VICE: I wish it was more original but probably red, red wine. God help me.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR SKIN: I like to think I’ve got some nice natural glow. Or maybe that’s the result of the 300 products I use? It’s a mystery I don’t care to solve.

WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE WHO HASN'T FOUND THEIR GLOW YET: When it comes to external glow, you are probably not an expert. Seek advice from someone kind, caring, and whip smart like Amanda.

When it comes to your internal glow, that’s all you.

ANY SECRET BEAUTY TIPS: Water, darlings. Water.

READING/LISTENING TO: Reading “Reckless Daughter” Joni Mitchell’s biography. Listening to Ray LaMontagne’s “Such a Simple Thing.”


And Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy because come on.
