Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Smoky Mountains

One of my major loves of the USA is the National Parks system. As a nature lover, and with a background in Wildlife Biology and Conservation, I am in awe of all of the National Parks that I have had the chance to visit, and the system that protects them. On our drive to the south, I had to make sure that we did not miss the Great Smoky Mountains, the most visited US National Park. I do hold the National Parks pass, however the Smoky Mountains don’t require an entrance fee, one of the few parks that don’t! The Smoky Mountains is part of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a division of the larger Appalachian chain. These Mountains border between North Carolina and Tennessee and is one of the largest protected areas in eastern US. They are also acknowledged as an UNESCO world heritage site, very impressive. With its beauty and diverse range of plant and animal life, it is no wonder that the Great Smoky Mountains is a popular place to visit and explore.

As we visited during winter, parts of the park was closed, I would love to go back during the spring and/or summer to explore more of this gorgeous place.

Skin Moderne++ review

Natural skin care is extrmemly important to me, what we put on our skin affects our health and overall appearance. So I am always on the look out for a skin care regime that uses natural and organic ingredients. I was thrilled to be given a set of the “elements’ products from Skin Moderne++ check out   Their website  for more information about their ingredients, their awesome use of  technology and where to buy these from.

Their products are all nutrient dense organic superfoods, making it the perfect natural skincare regime. Skin Moderne++ provides a minimalist approach to skin wellness. Within days of trying the products, I  already found that their use of  natural and raw ingredients has improved the youthfulness and overall health of my skin. These products are clean and free from harmful chemicals such as parabens and sulfates, which is so important. Other highlights include the technology which is cruelty free and innovative.

From the set, my two favorite products were the;

  • Red Algae, which instantly smooths any wrinkles which the combination of red algae and the amino acid Gamma Aminobutyric.
  •  AHA/BHA, which is used to renew and refine your skin. Using the perfect blend of Alpha Hydroxy and Beta Hydroxy.

Skin Moderne++ aims to nature and protect natural beauty, and from my use I found this to be true. I will continue to use and recommend this brand to others looking for organic and cruelty free beauty that leaves your skin radiant and youthful looking. I am also a fan of their colorful and cute packaging.
