But the thing is I realized I cringe whenever I hear someone say, Jersey, Girl I cringe at the movie Jersey girl everything yeah expression. But I need to know about what Your Jersey experience was like growing up like where he from I think you might live in New Jersey now right I do live in New Jersey now, which I thought I would never do it's sort of like a sign of the apocalypse really I love I mean.

But I was always obsessed with beauty products and which made me even more stand out against my classmates because no one else seemed very interested in any of that. But I- perfume baby powders bubble baths lip balm lip gloss is all of that stuff was my jam even when I was three or four years old so AGO, up. Did you get that from always fascinated when like other girls were not? Interested. In that kind of stuff to me, that was very surprising. I just was like I didn't understand that like other little girls not you know be fascinated by their mothers lipstick or the shampoo. So where did you find that stuff like where where was your access How did you get the access? My grandmother was really into beauty and I for me personally I have said this before. A personalized this comment because I don't Know how other people feel about it but I feel like you know it's a part of that culture. My aunts were very glamorous. They were high heels, poolside and my grandma always had our hair done. She always had some makeup and lipstick on she all my aunts and my grandma really they smell delicious all the time. So it was really a part me of Culturally of WHO I was in. So she was sort of my entry point into that and she would let me do her makeup or and her hair had like a hot roller set a set her hair. So that was really how I got into it. I mean, I also thought it was super weird that girls. Were not interested in that are didn't have.

When did you learn that word aestheticians? How did you know you wanted to be institition I know the truth is I didn't know I didn't know that it existed I. Didn't know that it could be the career it's become for me At all I went to college I forgot all about. Anything beauty related in moved to New York's fashion photographer. But when I got here I realized I wasn't cut out for that life at all. There was nothing about it that I was suited for and so big when I asked join us quickly what what about you said you weren't cut out for that like what about it made? You feel that way. I was really shy and to sell yourself to get work wasn't something that I was really comfortable with being like you should hire me because wobble Blah introduced the freelance lifestyle. when I was on set I remember I would get really uncomfortable and really sick to my stomach if someone was getting yelled at even if it wasn't me. yeah like I remember one. There was a photographer yelling at his first assistant who was the nicest person and just the experience of listening to that. Young man getting yelled at I I just I was sick for him.

A Conversation With Huda Beauty Founder Huda Kattan
"We're going to get you to travel back in time q the dream sequence music. Tell us about your earliest beauty memories as a child, my earliest beauty varies. Okay. So we we didn't grow up with a lot of money. So I, didn't necessarily have a lot of makeup growing up. So I actually remember it by might earliest memories for all diy is like legit all we were doing my first thing that I ever learned was like Lebanon like using like lemon juice to like get rid of dead skin and things like that. So that was always my thing it was like my sister told me you put a little bit of brown sugar like a half of a lemon and you scrub your body. And it was like really is the best thing. I. I was like Oh. My God I am like a beauty ker because I know how? I felt like I like secret. That's hilarious because I know you're videos like you do so many hacks you've been hacking since like age age I love Ed out really truly and so where where did you grow up? Where was your family living? So we grew up actually in the south in Tennessee so I am like southern it's funny my parents are. Immigrants, where my family immigrated sue from Iraq to America, but my sister and I moan and I were born in. Oklahoma. We moved to Tennessee bet I feel more southern than anything else. Yeah. I. Loved growing up in the south. It's very sweet there. You know it's very I feel like things are a little bit slower but they were very sweet. Also, very simple. Do you have a favorite country music artist Hooda? I feel like everybody likes tonight I train. Some very sad song. It's not true. It's true. Little E bickering I. I know that you know you didn't really vocal and talked openly about like not fitting in feeling like you didn't fit in as a kid in your hometown like, can you tell us about that because like so many people can relate to that yeah, and I think it's like sometimes it's a matter of like the way you love. Just like you know feeling different and for meal is kind of both of those things so. We grew up in a pretty much, very small town violinist city actually when I was in university but group in town my entire life pretty much. So it was always like very, very small, very intimate, but it was also you know very white and I always felt like an outsider one because my parents we always have a lot of money in my dad always tried to put. His better parts of the city and so it was like you know when we were living in less affluent places or like places that were more challenging it was like I felt more like I said, and then when we moved into places where we could go to better schools, it's hard. Sometimes I definitely felt like some kids to be really mean it was definitely probably not like I feel like. My child is actually I don't have very good memories than I don't like going back in time. It's funny because people like let's take a trip down memory lane. I'm like I don't want to you know I feel like all of those things that I worked through were actually shedding all those those like those beliefs that I had about myself. I had so many really like sad like endow for bots about myself like pretty much to about twenty six you know so I actually don't come. Very much I don't like it. We'll do it I don't watch. A lot of people I think can relate on this topic and we did have a question from one of our listeners and our private facebook chat room. Her name is jasmine shuttered jasmine and she said, hey, jasmine who says she has a question for you. She said as a fellow by cultural Iraqi I really wonder what it was like for her to grow up between. Two cultures and weather. She's felt any cultural pressure or received any backlash when becoming such a prominent figure as she had to make any sacrifices adopt herself is it something? You're strategic about? I. Totally. Get why. That's such an important question because we live my sister, it was really profound for me. It was like I felt like I was living my life forever like this. We don't like it was it was I'm not what I think I. Am I'm not what you think I. Am I think you see Cayenne and that's the truth you know. It's like it's we have these thoughts about what people think about us where people expect from us and we live according to that I remember seeing my parents and I remember seeing the way that they were living I just remembered not wanting to do a lot of things that they were doing and it's just it's hard especially when you become a popular person in your person in the public eye. Like living according to people like their opinion, you will never win and so at a certain point, you just have to think about what's more important. That's always going to probably be important but what is more important to you? It's important to think about like who do you who's living your life like whose life is it and yeah, it's not easy to kind of make that sacrifice. Think about like. Well, I'm going to go full force of make the decisions that I want and yeah, and deal with the backlash and try to turn it off to ignore those people. To not give them. You know it's really hard. It's not easy to do sometimes I literally I've I remember spending like I did this didn't connect to my phone for like a week and I was like you know what if it's important, somebody will
How Beauty Insider Tina Hedges Created LOLI, an Environmentally Sound Brand
"Career has taken her. From the perfume counter at macy's inside a conic brands like Christian Dior Estee Lauder Al. but after almost two decades beauty shetty personal crisis that inspired her to start lally beauty the I zero waste organic food grade approach beauty we talk about her a Pitney the one thing she asks every investor she meets with and why she is so committed to getting this, right. Teen almost two decades in the beauty industry and then you had both a health scare and day crisis of conscience. What happened I had spent about almost about to get decades or so traveling the world in pretty high powered marketing roles and innovation roles for big companies in the industry pretty much helping, decide and create all the products in women's beauty cabinets and. started. Simultaneously, I had this weird across section of I started having all these other immune issues and systemic allergies. A No physician could sort of pinpoint what was really triggering it as well as went through early menopause. And I was in my mid thirties and no underlying health conditions for that and I started to think about. All of the products have been applying to my body from head to toe for almost two decades and I started thinking about all those buildup of toxins and chemicals, and I realized that I had been polluting my own body and simultaneously. I had this consciousness of wow. Not only have I been pushing into the world products filled with all these chemicals and nasty since and and carcinogens endocrine disrupters all of this you know really scary stuff but on top of that were blending all of that in eighty to ninety five percent water because most of your skin hair and body products are literally water you're paying for water. And then wrapping all that in single use plastic and when the world is running out of water, it's one of our most precious resources when the boy to be more plastic in the ocean than fish by twenty, twenty five. None of this makes any sense to me or None of that made any sense to me a when I had this convergence of the crisis of health and crisis consciousness. Once you had that a home moment what was the first thing you did to sort of take that idea and start? Making it an actual reality. So I had already left the corporate world and I had gone into the start world. I launched a very successful. vegan sulfate free hair brand. Actually I was the first to use reality TV show on Bravo a show called blow out about a hairstylist in La and his hair salon. But because of us sort of uniquely understood, it was basically an hour long infomercial. We turned the industry on dime because prior to that I mean it was super early days of reality to be. We're talking like two, thousand, four it was America's biggest loser where for the straight guy blow out and the apprentice those were the reality shows that were on at that time and I realized wait a second. This is a show about a hairstylist. Want we show him developing his own brand? and. Don't have done that. So we were the first do that. And the purpose of going back to that stories I know how difficult it is. To start a business especially as a minority Hispanic female founder over the age of thirty. So I was really scared to start this and I. Just. Kept finding excuses left a brighter I'm going to consult or help this person with their brand, and it finally got the place at I was just sitting there and I realized. What do I have to lose? What's the worst thing that could happen? So I- self-financed and out of my upper side small studio apartment I launched a test of Lawley and so that was the beginning. Lawley is the world's first zero waste organic food grade approach to beauty. I want break each part of that down what does it mean to be Zero Waste We go to farms and fairtrade cops around the world, and we find parts of organic food that are being wasted or being thrown away in the process. So for example, our Plum Elixir, we work with a organic farm four generation owned in France that grows a very rare plummets called the end tape them and sa- tiniest considered like the fog or caviar of plums it's it's quite unique. It's extremely potent in antioxidants and vitamins and minerals, and when they make prune juice or pitted prunes, they were throwing away the colonel. And the Patriarch the father of this owner of the farm. About ten years ago said wait. We, press avocado oil from the pit of an avocado. We press all sorts of oils from pits Robin Doyle, why can't we press an oil and organic food grade oil from the pit of the plum? And he literally invented it like they're no one had ever had plum oil, and then he worked with the French bent to get it organic certified and recognized as a food ingredient, and then we started working with them and realized how powerful it was for skin hair
Your Biggest Hair Dilemmas, Solved With Herbal Essences Spokesperson Bridget Brager
"Yeah. So well, it is the fall now bridget and I feel like our facebook chat room like when we were talking about hair to some of our listeners in there there was a lot of discussion just about like resetting for fall and there was a lot of questions about like these common like dilemmas that we kind of are faced with when we finally take our hair out of. A top not in September and we're looking at her hair condition. So let's get started. We wanted to tackle some of those challenges with you today. So the first one is frizz which I think you know a lot of people can relate to and so first of all, why does it happen and then what is it about like certain hair types being more prone to Frizz than others? Heroines really for us as it becomes more damage and the more damaged hair becomes the more access lunch. So it really sucks up the moisture air the humanity, and that causes the hair shafts swell inching of stand on in and that's Frizz generap. FRIZZ. It's super important to us singer nourishing and moisturizing so that it acts as a barrier which mean he elements in your share mean my hair using residents it's and it's fine by color treatment hair less damage. But for for women with curly hair as their share begins to Pearl, the cuticle lists a little bit national thing happened. So they're from those with Philly hair owned friends. So it's all about really driving moisture into the hair own on keeping minutes. From. Okay. So we're GONNA talk about some hacks, but I like, what's a product that you're loving right now to reduce says I'm a firm believer that you using rations in commissioners is critical. It lays the foundation for your best hairstyle AWA- founder the red carpet fascination in that kind of where it starts in the shower. My absolute. Champion conditioner is the Herbal Essences Allah and Chin Selection. In sulfate free, Aloe is Subaru Charities Alice full of vitamins that by essential moisture is also super good for your scalp. We want to take into consideration how we treat our ourself just like we think about our skin face now it's at. Really interconnected and what about the the temperature of the water because I've heard that if it's hot like if it's too hot, that can bring on the phrase. Is kind of something I always recommend my clients before we are doing on the red carpet just do water minutes after conditioning your hair as cold as it can go right as you can get. The always do that in the salon I'm like, Whoa. The difference right especially after caller you know after you've gotten your done they don't WanNa fit hot water in because the molecule we'll just slip right out and they're doing we're doing everything close you. So that's the basically the number one takeaway here bridget that I'm hearing is like with Frizz it's all about creating that barrier. So that's why the shampoo and conditioner are so important because it's GonNa be closing that cuticle down so you don't get that moisture seeping and I, guess I'm a big Fan of these rapid dry hair towels now I don't know. If I'm using the right but I've heard an they often claim that they prevent for as you think that's the case I do. So the micro fiber towels or Subaru gentle in the way that our traditional cotton towels are not cotton it's six up right and it catches the hair and it can fool they won the hair and also handed can can kind of go right in between where you're cuticle doesn't notice it wants to slap opener lay down or with a minor fiber towel you can get in there with it. Super Gentle on the hair. And it really lays everything down nicely absorbed so much water today were I actually just. Photo unused micro fiber I'll sorry Mike each. My dog then he's little else and I need to try them clicking like why not this rabbit rabbit in as it was really funny but they work they are not again back is something I believe that you're going you WanNa take your regiments the next level as something that will Okay. Okay.
How a TitkTok star made their skincare products go viral
"I'm a skincare youtuber located in Hawaii. I relaxed focused on creating content. That's both entertaining and informative that revolves around skincare. My hope is to essentially bring people into the. World that aren't. Familiar aren't knowledgeable about the way the products ingredients working give him just the base level of education with some you know in their teen minutes of humor. Hopefully, sue have softened their entry into the skincare world so that they can you know start into products that are going to be nonsense -tising, non irritating, really beneficial for the skin and gives them opportunities to pursue further education afterwards, and I particularly noticed growth on Youtube Been Tiktok from a younger audience. I think which is really amazing to see articulately you know teenagers and young adults who are starting on skincare and really taking care of their skin from an earlier age. Yeah. I was going to ask you how you've got though skin-care skin-care stands coming for you that are all. Basically A. Pop. Star. But in the beauty. That is the best I've ever seen. But I know that your content has gone deeper the not as well. You've been really open about your mental health journey, and in fact I read that it was sort of a personal challenge you had with an eating disorder that help you to discover your own love affair with beauty and self care. Can you explain that y you really done your research thank you. I appreciate it Yes oh my original entry into the cosmetics. was that I was struggling with your the after effects of eating disorder anorexia specifically, and it had really taken a grip on my life and I was trying to recover and I just was not getting over this hump of like self acceptance and identifying own beauty and my therapist had. To like tell yourself in the mirror. You're beautiful every day and I'm just like not enough that does that does not work for me. That's not that's not being just is not effective in. One day randomly having to get like a bad sunburn. So I went to safari for the first time I got tinted moisturizer I brought it home just because I had a few meetings and I put on the tinted moisturizer and I looked in the mirror and it was the first time in my entire life I've ever felt beautiful I had never up until that moment ever looked in the mirror and thought wow, I looked. Really, good I look beautiful. It was just such a foreign concept to me in a really life changing moments and it wasn't because I had makeup on if didn't have very much to do with the makeup more so. that the makeup unlocked my ability to see my own beauty. So after that, I became really passionate about makeup and I start working as makeup artists but I think. The Romance for make it was a little short lived I think. Actually doing makeup people start to realize that not everyone wants to fund cut crease moment every day, which is definitely where my passion more saliva artistry, and then I discovered stinkier and just the amount of knowledge and really focused on identifying you know you're. I guess more. So the focused around health and you know just the crazy amount of information ingredient knowledge in that is just insurmountable like to this day I'm still learning every single day about new ingredients about new information, new studies, new opinions, and I think that just entice me such a level that make up never had also wanted to show the base level of knowledge with others because as I started getting into the skill that was either like you only heard what sales people would say or there was very intense clinical dermatologists riddled with all these very complicated terms that I didn't understand type of information out there and I was struggling to find someone who could just kind of like introduce. You to the skincare world from a very simple standpoint, be able to break down all the you know how cleanse moisture is all the basics and so I wanted to. Help people out in that way and as I learned, I shared my. Journey with people on on Youtube and. Kind now here, and thankfully there's Only more dermatologists, online There's so many skincare contact creators that have made it so much easier for people now as opposed to like even just when I started. So is incredible to see like more and more education and more and more access to easy to understand skincare information. There is for people out there which I'm really happy to see.

Conversation with Stephanie March & Rebecca Perkins of SheSpoke Makeup
"Stephanie I'm Rebecca. Thank you so much for joining us. This is possibly the highlight of my whole, my whole lockdown. It's very hard to say that is a compliment was so excited, we are delighted to be a part of. No I'm so excited to which you. It's so fun to talk to people in different parts of the industry. That's. My favorite thing about this podcast, we get to all different kinds of people and you have such an individual take on where you've come into beauty. So for the listeners at home, can you explain to us how you two met? We met on the set of law and order svu Rebecca was head of makeup departments camera what seasonal was backup, but you remember. It was it was the. Eater nine. and not yet was during a triumphant return yet for Good Alex and Rebecca I. Just you know it's really important that you have a good relationship with everybody on the set but particularly people who are very you know literally picking food out of your teeth of are going wrong you haven't noticed. People who are on your person and so not only did we get along but we became really good friends and then, and then we started this business together and so that must've been crash becker. Boeing, seven years ago seven years ago when we when we started noodling it over yeah. was years ago when we started noodling and then that's right when we. opened the door and you know when you're on set your onset with people for like fourteen hours a day five days a week. So you really get to know people when they're tired when they're cold and. And you know. We near makeup artist, you're literally up in people's faces. So so you know. I think it's so important when you're going to business to have a partner and to already go into that knowing that like you know, we don't get tired of each other and we could really trust each other to to tell the truth about an idea. So that was sort of. That was that was the first good decision and then we realized. I left the show at the end of season twelve. And A. Lot of the experience of having a makeup artist wasn't something that only people who were on a set should have. And so we started doing. This makeup services tennis. But then we also started offering as a service, the ability to make makeup, and it's just it's been really fun approaching makeup as a career from so many different angles like from the production and onset angle, and then from opening a business in a service capacity and then developing products. So it's been a really. Wild ride tells on how you came to start the store for people that don't know you guys have a store in Soho in New York where you can come in and get your makeup done and craft your own products. Right. You can make your own lipsticks, which is terribly exciting all the obviously not right now but. So tell us where the idea for that I came from. Obviously, you mentioned the idea of everyone wanting a makeup artist. How did that go from a casual chat to something that is real exists you know somebody told me I think it was originally Christopher Reeve and I can't remember the three questions but it's what you ask yourself when you're deciding. Whether or not to take on a role in one of the main things is, can I bear?

Look Younger With Leeches Dr. Nidia Diaz
"It's the get foxy show once again, Jerry Fox here this time with Dr Nidia Diaz. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk to us today. It's quite an honor. Thank you very much Mr Fox you bet, well, you're an acupuncturist I'm an acupuncturist. We are Chinese medicine. Practitioners. This is this is one of the reasons why I wanted to have you on the show is because we've got some things in common. I. I study Aesthetic Facial Cosmetic Acupuncture you're also schooled in this as well. And what drew me to ask you to be on this show? Was I found out? That you are a rare practitioner in Kuroda therapy. Can you tell the listeners what that is and how that all plays into what you're doing? Well reto therapy not to shock everyone, but it's live leeches. Lives, Wrigley Very. Beautiful Gentle Leeches and they've been used since the dawn of time as a form of medicine and currently are FDA approved does medical device. So, what I've done is I've combined the two. Of this bio inject. Let's say on top of acupuncture points. To create really amazing results. How in the world discount about did you when you grew up when you were growing up, did you think you're going to become an acupuncturist who worked with leeches or how how did this all fall into place for you? Well I grew up in New York in Chinatown was one of my favorite places to go exploring and. I had already had already like just imagined. You know life as a physician ever since I was little massaging my dad's feed every night. and. The mystique of eastern medicine just you know. Interested me and my name Nidia being you know similar to the word India also but meet to just you know that sort of eastern culture a really enjoyed that aspect in. When I found my calling I was like, yeah, that's it. I'm totally into. Oriental. Medicine therapies and what have you? And did you end up going to a specific school in New York or word where did your Pathway Ju? I went to the second oldest acupuncture school which was in. Pinellas Park Florida. and Luckily we had three out of the three hundred PhD Professors in the world. that. Were Doctors of Oriental Medicine with that sort of PhD level of training. So I felt really lucky that I got to complete my doctor and Oriental Medicine Degree those four years at that school. And afterwards, I did still feel like I needed a little bit more. So I decided to to make a journey to Asia and travel to over twenty five foreign countries in search of quote unquote the cure. And brought back leeches. To me is absolutely amazing, you'd think that. Sounds is okay. I'm going to go out to these these other countries and really sit at the feet of semesters and learn amazing knowledge. And it comes down to Leeches. Yep. That's how. That's so brilliant. So. Why is it that leeches are so good for aesthetic facial acupuncture how to to? Mesh Well. They are FDA approved for Venus Congestion And the reality is that they suck up eighty percent lymph fluid. Not, blood. When they feed, it's only a little bit of blood. So, with aesthetics, you have a lot of signs of aging that have to deal with lymphatic stagnation like double. Chin. Sagging Giles. That bloated moon phase you know all of that so By applying these medicinal Leeches, you get to drain literally drain the excess fluid that surrounds like. The jaw line, the neck area. You can even see a difference in the puffiness underneath the is above the eyelids just because you have less emphatic stagnation. So I I think it's amazing.
The Beauty Industry Exposed
"Hi Everyone I'm amber and today my fabulous co-host is Dr. Heather Rogers she is a board certified dermatologist she still practicing and seeing people every day in Seattle and she's the founder of Dr Rogers restore skincare. Now, thank you so much for being here with us today Dr Odors. Thank you for having me. Now we met. Because I was hosting anew beauty live peace and. One of your products was featured but I loved it because you and I got to like have a little bit of Banter and meeting and I think that we kind of bonded on the fact that both of us really feel like there is a lot of. For lack of a better term bullshit in the beauty and destroy. and I know recently I've had so many of my girlfriends call me and say how do I get rid of freckles? How do I do this and I'm like well. Do you want results. Do you WANNA. Because then you need to or do you want something that's GonNa like kind of work and make you feel better about it Completely so so so first of all, where are you right now it looks like you're a summer camp I know. So I have been the San, Juan Islands, I married a man from the San Juan Islands. We Pretty much everything for was canceled because of Co bid and my husband doctors. So we're still seeing patients every day and. That makes it. So the kids really aren't having the kind of summer that they should be having. So we have taken days off going to go. Camping, which is not necessarily my first choice of activities, but I am really sort. Oh I will I love boating I. Really do my husband can't can't deal with it. We keep that. What does it Bonein? Really really close by, but I love being out in the water and you know taking a little dip and. When we did our meet and greet you had shown me you know via. Zoom what the San Juan Islands look like an oh my gosh. When travel is starting up again, I'm heading out there it is beautiful. It is beautiful and I love being on a boat. It was actually really funny. I just had my birthday which I was actually with you on and I got an astrological reading as a birthday present from one of my best friends and I am deficient in the water sign, which means that I am really drawn to the water in my entire life I sailed all through college. I'm a scuba diver abode. I'm a surfer and that was it was really fun sort of explanation where it was like I need water at all times way to fiery. Read who did your reading so Again because you can't really have parties when my dear friend had like a group of five of us and they brought someone in and we all were mask and she sat and read all five of us and. And it was. It's just we're trying to find find right now. Right? You can't dinner you can't go to the lake. So we're just wonderful things we can do in this woman was so thoughtful and careful and how she said things. But she still was so crazy accurate where she's like wow. For me, heather you're so busy like you need to calm down. And I'm like, yeah, that's. Right so it was great in another woman who is a big rock climber. Like the third thing she said, Yours, you have a compulsion to touch rocks nowhere like these sort of really accurate things are really fun I. Okay. So first of all, I'm obsessed with astrology I live for this woman Susan Miller I don't know if you know her. Find her a my mother East facts, my Tarot card readings to me at work. Yeah I know. But I I love at night I read my horoscope for Dan. I do believe that there are these cosmic. All sort of connected cosmetically, and so it's a good thing to be aware of but I would love having reading is such a great idea for a birthday superfund and then to really show you how ridiculous I am it was just my anniversary and so I, had her do another reading for the relationship for my husband and I, and our kids like why. Did that and my husband was skeptical but then he got a lot of positive accolades from it and he's like Oh. This is great. This is. Good. All right. So it was a positive reading then. You do. What you gotta get out of this, what do you do in that situation? It's always funny unrelated. But another person was doing reading palms for my husband myself and my brother in law and she read Mine and she read Matt my husband's, and then she got Brian my brother-in-law's and was like I can't tell you what I'm seeing. In can't share with you. That is. Very that scary. I had my tea leaves red ones and the woman told me that. This was a really good life for me because in the past I've had some really terrible ones. So I'm Mike. I'm going to make the most out of this one then sister. Next rate. Goodness well. Again Happy Happy Birthday and. You know like I said, we really hit it off because I feel like. There is. So there's so much confusion when it comes to the be marquette and that's part of the reason that I started. This podcast is you know to give people experts like yourself a voice to come on and help us figure this out and. In a way that wasn't being paid for or sponsored or branded, which look there's a place for that and we will understand it because it's business but I wanted to see you know, is there a place where people can come on and tell it like it is so in Doing that it's seeding rare and the same with me in the world of dermatology is that I have been approached many times every year about being a spokesperson for arena on the board of different companies, skincare companies, beauty companies, injectables, and I have decided I a long time ago and everyone says a really principle that I was not ever GonNa be paid to be recommend anything and the I wanted my opinions to be my own based on the research. I've done on the training I've gone through and in dermatology world. That's exceedingly rare right now, the top hundred dermatologist in this country, it knew that on aesthetic dermatologist everyone is being paid for. Beyond aboard or doing a study or whatever it is, and it's really hard to be objective there and I just have decided that I will be the defender of the consumer at sort of how I viewed myself and I'm in a lot of articles in the press sort of enjoys me because I, like you speak the truth. You want hear about like what? Snail extract few call heather? and Like I love that I love the fact that now I am known as the voice of reason, where think there is very little reason and that's how I started and then unfortunately as they sort of learned more and more about is in care products that were out. The more I realized that even though it is a hundred billion dollar industry. What we may need may not what's available and so that's actually the reason why skincare company didn't start as new wanting to make brand and I actually started talking about wanting to stay very objective. It's very hard for me to recommend my products because their mind and I feel like that's a conflict of interest but at the same time I really I mean, I'm not a chemist I was compelled to do this because after someone's spent twenty five dollars to laser in their face I couldn't tell them what they should use. Afterwards, that was going to be safe and effective in like that I found

"Kate How's life? Dory. Will first of all today in the New York Times Crossword? Yes. As now as now I'm an expert doing, Oh, I know what you're. GonNa say go on and I woke I woke up this morning to texts from a listener that was just like I can't wait for you to see the New York Times crossword like thirty two across and I was like, oh Six thirty in the morning, I'm like frantically getting onto the New York Times crossword thing. And it says. Skin care product and I was like Oh my God what and so it was five letters and so I just wrote in serum but then it turns out that was wrong. It was not serum but it was one of my other favorite products toner I know. I was GONNA say spoiler but I know sorry too late every it hustle away I mean whatever I also was like, ooh, maybe it's serum. But Alas. I mean, I even was self absorbed enough to think maybe the person who wrote this listens to the podcast and this is like a super secret Easter Egg. Listen, I had like the you are a writer. New York Times crosswords. Send us a smoke signal in across shorts will shortz if you're out there hydrating. Face. Hit US. Doesn't do all the players Mahjong themed crossword not too long ago. A really yeah. Did you feel like that was assigned to you the yes? Definitely. was made for me. I'm gene okay. I survived or my family made it through the first day of one hundred percent distance learning at home. You know shoutout teachers shut up parents and Guardians shutout school administrators everyone who works at schools I mean just shout out to everybody. But so great. Because We did it and They had a really good day. And I mentioning it because I went to trader Joe's for the first time in approximately six months Ah-ha. I hadn't been to TJ's like TJ's near me. All the teachers are tiny, but a new one opened up. Who never experienced new TJ's before. But I was like I'm doing it. I'm going to trader Joe's. I use the excuse that we needed frozen being Tuxedos and then I got there and I was like well, I'll load up my cart with like eight thousand bags of truffle flavor things. But it was. So it felt so good to be back in a trader Joe's I. Don't know how why to explain I I don't know how to explain why like the experience of a specific grocery store feels. Like being with an old lover or something. Do. You know what I mean. I was like Oh right My main goes strips are like, yes the frozen lot. Just. All, the TJ's and the things that we love in my house I stocked up on. So many snacks because story now everyone in my home like. We're all there and we're all kind of like in work mode like you know summer is over and we must provide. School lunch for her children during the day and I don't know why it feels different from lunch any other time but it just does yeah I hear that. I stocked up on. FROZEN SOUP dumplings, they'll eat those sound good. I. Mean I just was like, what can I serve these creatures for lunch. I made a little favor them today with. Charmed, charmed by and then I heard my lake second grader telling her teacher on zoom about it like we had a buffet for lunch which was really like I took out snap peas put them in a bowl I opened Hamas I caught up some pita bread. But it felt like a win and I'll take any win. I can get right now Louis. So that's what I'm to I literally eight. So many TJ snacks today just for the pure pleasure I'm jealous. A-. Have truffle potato chips that were so good. I, had never seen them before. I had a Pasadena Salad from them. I mean I just Tj it hard all day just like strictly trader Joe's and so into this for you. Yeah. Yeah. Thank you. I'm into it too and I also want to note that they have like new hand soap trader Joe's. we've never talked about really about a hand soap on this podcast and I feel like it is something I could I like kind of I don't WanNa say horrid I don't like misuse that term but I stock up on a lot of hand soap. But I'm a sucker for a sleek bottle and certain smells and I. Do feel like hand soap is an item where like I splurged on a fancy hand soap and I'm wondering is that a thing is that a scam like fancy hand soap the same as just like a regular trader Joe's Hanso with just a fancy name. Sores there's something special about a fancy hand well, okay. I think the answer is yes and no. So. So it's like a scam one can get behind. Yes. So like I love the smell of a sob hand soap, it is right ridiculously expensive like it's obscenely expensive I did splurge on it once and I was really happy. And then I just kind of stopped buying it because I was like. This is sort of ridiculous like I was kind of embarrassed even though I did really enjoy it but I think. It for me it has to be like, okay, this is like the thing I'm splurging on right now you know what I mean if you have one thing that you splurge on, maybe it's a night cream maybe it's a Sierra maybe it's hand soap. Maybe you don't spend on anything but like if you splurge on something. That that would be my thing for the month or something

Grandmother was really a beauty icon. In every single way you can think of like grandmothers energy and her confidence in her just like her personality. She was filled with Joy and light always and I remember like looking at her and just saying to my cellphone wants to be like my grandmother when I grow up and she was not like the typical you know beautiful like what people can can consider like. Gorgeous. You know I don't want to say it is wrong way in the runway but like a lot of times they know someone is beautiful in a lot of people just think like imagine a perfect looking you know nine the perfect knows and for me beauties really like that light that you shine through lake that your personality it's the most important thing. If you have a good personality, you are automatically beautiful. That's how I always thought and my grandmother was for me the most beautiful woman I got a lot of things from her. She was the one who gave me my first red lipstick when I was six years old.

It's been ages. been such a Carolina Dinner. Gosh. Yes. That was like one of the last. Four. Before. Everything. Yeah Time wasn't it? And but you are coming on the focused show feel good habits which. And just to remind listeners overseas that he's been on the show before and she is a fellow protocol stor, remind everybody about your podcast with Anna? Hermit Liliana we run through top five favorite things from the week, and then we discussed like different topics and answer questions from our viewers. We have like a facebook group and it's just really chilled radio relaxed in Refund Jesse. is also one of my favorite content creators because everything you put together with. So considered I, wonder how you have a specimen in the day but. Even even your content I told you this I still you at Caroline's dinner I will even read in their entirety let your recommendations, strollers or pushchairs, oab because it's just so well fit together and I'm no interest in those things I loved the advice curry funny that from the outside you think everything say thoughts during considered. That's how I feel about Anna guys. So like behind the scenes that she like Oh, my God what am I doing, throw it together I panic and then it all comes together like I didn't panic but. Donna I'm definitely. On his unique and I just have to come to terms because there are times when. I could just be like an my life which we could one of a kind and ten years hard to be best friends. Honestly actually imagine that but she's just pure joy in sunshine but he was thinking about this the other day because I was trying to understand my own. Numeracy's an I, need the pressure of sometimes leaving things to the last minute but. I feel like the quality of works I will produce his best or if that is a little pressure on and I've always thought that was because of magazines. Journalism. Book Yeah definitely same with my managers laugh at me because whenever they come to something my first thing is just panic now I can't do it can't do this go wrong wrong wrong and then I do it in a likely that was unreal and I'm like. Germany I just panic and I've so like, no, no no I can't do it, and then I can. Use is a confidence thing of being being scared to do it and the okay. Picture there. For your feel good habits where are we going to stall where ease I said to you I? Feel like I'm going to be at your worst guests because I asked me come on. I was like, Oh, I just I'm so not like a self care person that you have lots of very positive guests who are very like he needs to have time without your phone I. Wish I could be one of those people but I'm I'm just so no. And I definitely panicked in Donna and I was like I don't know I feel good habits are and then she actually. Is Helpful to hear from someone else like what she thinks minority and she really helped me like thinkers and things. So there have been different I think to what you usually have bit good. Because actually I find the self cast base helpful but also sometimes a bit stodgy. Like. These are some feel good habits from. A cynical realist. Excellent. In fact, that's why would have called the franchise been bit snapping. Okay number. One you ready. This seems a little bit of Yes taking photos, organizing photos, printing them, putting them in albums making home videos. I've got shed albums on my iphone and all of that so much feel good for me. I just love it. I get so much joy from it especially since having gray. Okay. So tweeted shed album thing because I have shove I didn't think I intended to have one. Yeah. I didn't either until my friend reef to Ustralia, and you basically start shed album on your iphone and you can add people to it. So it means whenever you add to video it's domestically than on that shared open, they can also check on. FM So it's great for long distance relationships my friend who's in Australia has done and I've got one for gray because riches family will live in Suffolk didn't get to see how elephants everyday outlawed the videos and they can just check in a little light on the phone and they can like comments instagram but and they can show their pride and it's great. Oh that's really really nice. Yeah. So on it's from the other day you were you would. Created like not a scrapbook but something where you actually. Getting physical pictures. Remember that. Making is it was that a scrapbook? It's just a photo album. That's actually one of the few things that I'm still quite organized with I really try like once a month or like. Every two months go through my phone delete anything that's like shouldn't like random searches of duplicates. Favorite like the best photos and then I'll print them. So I used APP who'd free prints in the best quality perfectly fine for like a full by six thirty and yet she get forty five reprints a month. So you just pay for delivery and every as often as I can all do that, and then I'll just put them in like a photo album.
Mega Beauty Influencer Jackie Aina on Diversity in Beauty
"Okay. So first of all, Jackie, how are you all sweaty right now? But I'm doing good. I'm I'm like exhausted like excited all at the same time, but I'm doing well, what about both of you? Right now, I'm just trying not to go Jackie Jackie. Jackie jacket jacket. Jacket. Lead such a signature. It's like the best thing ever puts me instantly in a good mood when I see one of your videos. So we wanted to get into a little bit of your beauty must, of course, we always like to get a little insight into when you're obsession with beauty started. So going way back. Do you remember like what your first product obsession was like high school or even grade school so for? For me, my earliest beauty obsession was definitely fragrance and I know it's a little offbeat. But when I was a kid as early as like eight nine, I had a condition called hyper hydrolysis, and so I didn't know it was a condition. I didn't know there was like a name for this, but it's basically someone who is an excess sweater that sounded like sweater as in like a Cardigan. No. Like someone who sweat. So I would sweat a lot and my mom had to, and so you know like when you're a kid like prisoner, kids are just mean evil. So you get teased that was just like one more thing to be embarrassed about and really shy about. So my earliest memory of beauty was like onboard with my mom through like different fragrances that we would wear to try to like you know mascot because you know growing up, we didn't have a ton of money. We couldn't afford like luxury. Luxury bags, luxury cars or shoes, but you can afford alums refrigerants like that was like the closest thing to like having something. Really. Really. Nice. So my definitely, my earliest memory of like being instability was due fragrance and I was always fascinated I make up I was just like really to shied aware it because I don't want to put it on. Crazy. So I feel like fragrance came first and then somewhere in their makeup was like something I was really fascinated by, but wasn't bold. Bold, enough to like actually like indulge in it. But fashion was like really my thing, I would draw sketch design and my mom was a seamstress. So she would like make the clothes for me on my palm gown like see. We knew it was something that I did with my mom. So that's something that I really love to, and ironically she was a very light makeover. She would literally only wear lipstick and live sticking hearings. Thumbs only thing and she would always tell me if you. You ever need a pick-me-up. All you need is a good pair of earrings and lipstick, and you're good and what was the fragrance you'd walk in the room and Jackie. What was that smell? The earliest one that I remember us being like really obsessed with was dolgin Gabon a light blue. I remember that being one of our favorites I, remember US wearing a Scada I. know she hated to know that was one thing I remember until this day I still hate to know fragrances because. I, it just doesn't work with our body chemistry. But yeah, I remember those I think she probably were a little bit of Rossler into. But yeah. We were like fragrance snob sunny. We would just be like. Now, as she went to, she would explain to me like fragrance notes and like what things work better. You know on different she explained to me like how the body chemistry work that it was just like a really really like losing weight and like bond with her and yeah, just neutral good. If some ever listeners aren't that familiar with your backstory, can you let everyone know how you got into beauty and Youtube and because you actually in the military for a bit as well? Right yes. Yes. So, my story is like a hot mess, but as as you know like. A lot of us don't have like one linear path to success like its curves and bumps grows mountains. Traffic is toll lanes, all kinds of crazy stuff. So basically, I was always really heavily into arts and beauty and fashion I thought was my life calling when I was young was literally like go to film study fashion and become like either designer like a merchandiser or something and fashion industry. So you know your parents you down and you're like sixteen seventy, they're like, what are you gonNA. Do with your life and I'm just like Duh. You know like I'm going to study fashion like, why are you gonNa me this like low. But the problem is like, what am I? Is An immigrant. He's from Nigeria. Okay. So when you explain to, you know like a black American parent and African American parent you WANNA go dot a greater field. They may be more open to it. They may be a little judgy. It just depends on who you ask, right. Nigerian on the other hand. When you tell them, you're going especially your parents when you tell them, you're going into the crater field. They like absolutely not. They're like how? To do, but you're not doing
Briogeo: Nancy Twine
"The easiest part about building a business is the day you imagine it in your head because everything that happens after it is really hard the research, the business plan the pitch to investors finding the factory, the distributor, the shops to sell your product. Each one of these steps is an obstacle and for the most part, each step creates a new problem. Too many problems can become overwhelming and soon enough it can also become tempting to just ditch the whole idea entirely. So to avoid that trap. Nancy twine took each problem one at a time, which is good because her idea was pretty complicated. To build a line of natural shampoos and conditioners without most of the synthetic ingredients you'd find in other hair care products. She also wanted to design a line of products for all hair types and textures, and she one of those products on the shelves of Sephora one of the premier beauty retailers in the world all of these problems Nancy would eventually solve her brand. is now carried by Sephora and is expected to do almost forty million dollars in sales this year. But to get there especially with zero experience in the beauty industry was gonNA pose a series of major challenges starting with finding a chemist who actually believe you couldn't make this stuff without parabens or sulfates or phthalates, or any of the other common chemicals you need to make shelf stable shampoo. Biggest early challenge though was having the courage to start the business at all. It was two thousand and ten and Nancy was in her twenty s on the fast track is a trader for Goldman. Sachs. In New York. And one day without any warning. A tragedy completely upended her life and prompted Nancy to reevaluate the way she was living at which we'll get to. Nancy grew up on Long Island New York her parents split up when she was a kid Nancy's mother was a physician and the twines were one of the few black families in their neighborhood. My mom was a family doctor and I don't even know if that term is quite used anymore. And I do remember at a young age being at her doctor's office and it was always full. You know a lot of people ask me where I got this very confident entrepreneurial experience from but I think that there was so much value and power of me seeing my mom running a successful practice really running a business. My Mom was an entrepreneur in seeing that at a young age seeing her confidence seeing her joy and the fact that being a female being a black female was not a hindrance. To any of the dreams and goals that I would ultimately have in life in red like as a kid used to go to West Virginia Lot. But what's the connection to to West? Virginia he asked. So my mom is from West Virginia. She's one of eight children and my grandmother is from there and that's where she raised her tribe and a very small rural town called Rand R. A. N. D.. What did you know about her upbringing? I mean it's like I. Think to this day. It's one of the whitest states in the country and obviously one of the poorest states in the country did she ever talk about what her childhood was like there? Yeah it was. It was definitely a tough childhood. They didn't grow up with a lot and the fact that my mom grew up in that type of environment not only not having an a lot but not being able to see what success and beyond that lifestyle could look like because. so much of wanting to become better. Or becoming successful comes from seeing other people who look like you that have done it. And when you don't even see the possibility but knowing within you that it exists in having that faith and belief in yourself. It's so so powerful and that was very much my mom's

"Hello, everybody. Welcome to fatness Garra I. Am Jess. I'm Jen. It's a Thursday double episode in the we liken this rhythm and it seems like you guys might be into it too. I think. So anyway, I we actually recorded this a little bit early, the interview and the intro. As you listen to this on Thursday I'm going to be in the middle of nowhere camping with my husband's just think of me think protective. No mosquito thoughts, I know my summer vacation right now bringing to protect yourself. I have. I haven't oil-based repellent also have the off spray with the DA and we we are trialing a tent. We have our regular ten, but this company let us try to attend that goes on top of the car. So I won't be sleeping on ground level right now while you're listening to this, I'm up in the air somewhere on top of my jeep in the middle of Maine. Hopefully, not getting bit by mosquitoes. How's that? For Beauty Pike? Wait to see you're going GonNa, take photos, of course, right of this tenth that goes on top of the car. Yeah. I can't remember the name of what it is. But like I'm kind of excited and we figured it was a safe mine has been safe. They're letting people in from New York. We're bringing our masks were camping by ourselves. So we can enjoy the outdoors safely, and that's like a good way to get away for just a little bit and like you know refresh don't roll off the car nervous. Very. Nervous thing back next week. Next week. We'll talk about it, but now we have a big juicy interview. Okay. Let's do now. I love Dr Paul Frank. He's amazing. He for full disclosure a good friend. He's a great friend, but he is also one of my most trusted dermatological sources. This guy knows every technology before everyone else I mean, I'm not. I'm being Harper, bollock because like I really think he's the best, but he really is like my go-to hotline to what's coming down the pipeline, what you know what the hot trends are. He just got his finger on the pulse and I'm so excited to bring him back for a second time. He is one of our only two time guests. We had him about three years ago to talk about all things like. noninvasive light Oh and we want to talk about his new book. Now, it's called the pro aging playbook Dr Frank is he works with lots of celebrities, and he's to discreet to name all of them and he also consulted lots of different big brands and not only is he fabulous? He is a board certified dermatologist though, but he's also clinical assistant professor at the icon. It can. Oh, God, Dr Frank Don't Kill Me School of. Medicine. At Mount, Sinai welcome Dr Frank. Dr Frank. You are one of the busiest Durham's out there. You've got a lot of celebrity clients. You've got a very big practice. You're always doing TV appearances. You you're a very big on TIKTOK. We know this. Okay. You're not doing your take type performances. Why did you decide that you needed to write another book I? mean, that's big. Endeavor. Temporary Insanity. I coned wrote a book nineteen years ago when there were these new things that were experimental called. In. Stiller. And after the work out like okay. And I check off the box to do that again. But I wrote a second book because the had an idea to go against the grain a little bit and write about something that people would expect the lease from a beauty book and certainly one from Cosmetic Dermatology book, and that is hopefully with pro aging playbook is all about. All. Right. So I WANNA to talk about the title, the title when you told me the title I kind of like like I I, got like a like you definitely caught me off guard, but the title pro aging playbook because there's been a lot of discussion about the term Teijin. The past couple of years, we had Michelle Leon, the editor in chief of allure about a year and a half ago, and she put a huge stake in the ground. By saying, we are banning the term anti-aging. She wants to ditch entirely in the background, a lot of press, and you're going a step further. Further and you're saying pro aging. What does pro aging mean while it? Basically a backlash to the negative stigma that generations of people have had toward agent and I think a lot of it is just one big marketing ploy, the term anti-aging. The fact that aging is a bad thing and we have to inject laser moisturizers. Serum is extra dies Diet, get back to a younger state and to me the biggest events I've seen in my field is not injectables. Lasers is in the outlook in perspective we have towards beauty now, which I think is a very positive thing and it can be empowering. Up The audience out there, that has not gotten over the stigma. That is what I'm trying to achieve in the pro aging label and one that I don't think you'd expect from someone like, Ray.
Clean Beauty in the Era of Misinformation With Cosmetic Chemist Jen Novakovich of The Eco Well
"So we're really starting to see this awakening of cosmetic scientists within the scientific community. You know really standing up and speaking out against the wellness industry as you said, and clean beauty marketing on social media and on Youtube. So what are your thoughts about this movement as part of the movement does really bubbling up right now? I think it's Great I. Think this is one of the positives that is coming from the clean and wellness space or quote Unquote Green. Space it is frustrating scientists and we're now starting to show up in forced on social media. It's also fostering collaboration communication on. Its fostering creativity where now starting to think I know at least I am, how can we reach better? Can Moore's? That's for example, influencing the influencers in bringing them on our team so that we can make this information marks. So that's something I. Think is really interesting in a positive. That is coming from the misinformation that is kind of overwhelming Not, just in our industry, it's kind of overwhelming through air right and do you believe the word clean should be removed from the beauty lexicon or is there use for that language? I would love for it to be removed. It perpetuates so much undue fear. It puts a lot of blame on consumers. It reinforces the idea that. If something bad happens in someone's life. It's because of the products they were saying they were purchasing dirty products and then they eventually got cancer. It's your fault because you wrong products. That's toxic I personally think in really unhealthy, it gives people a lot of anxiety. And a lot of the Times. The anxiety is undo because the products are demonstrably safe. They're pulling fearmongering to capture that idea from consumers like we wanna buy the best things for our family. We WanNa buy things that are going to damage the environment. These are things that we're all. With good cause concerned about right and like. I would love for it to be removed because ultimately the movement. From what I've seen I, believe is underpinned by pseudoscience in how can we move forward to do better if we're not actually informing our decisions by actual scientific evidence your whole subject matter is all about scientific communication. So what about the words chemicals when you hear about chemical free and that sort of thing and beauty? Why is it so loaded? Well it is waving it on a play that they don't have that science literacy that I think we learned in high school. Maybe even grades little that things are made up of chemicals. Chemicals are the building blocks of life in. So it's perpetuating science illiteracy. And misinformation because everything Beta matter are made up of chemicals rate. When we're thinking about the space of wellness would like multibillion dollar industry now and I think again, this movement that's happening with scientists where they're like, Hey, guys, let's attack some of this misinformation going on. Do you think that there is still any room for anecdotal evidence in your mind like small batch brands that are coming out there like this whole line is based on Aloe, my grandmother used to use it on my wounds or you know real women are writing reviews, online or beauty journalists who have tried hundreds of products just being like I. Love this product like. Is. There any room for that anecdotal evidence? Because that's the only thing is sometimes I'm like you know, does that mean we should only listen to scientists or what's your take on that? No. I. Mean Anecdotal Evidence has its place in Michelle from lab muffin beauty science wrote a great blog, but she has an instagram post. I, think she also has a video on this but. I mean, you can't be so scientific about the stuff because a, there's not that much science to substantiate every single thing in life including in cosmetic products. Everybody's different surf. You like product, which you're GonNa like out of your anecdotal experience than you should use the product that you like. Reviews feedback from customers. To brands as I'm formulating I received anecdotal experience through a reviews from my clients to make a product. So it's important. It's just not something when we're making statements about, for example, this ingredient will interact with Awka pour in your skin cells to enhance cellular hydration. Various claim that should be substantiated with scientific evidence, but this ingredient is going to help or this product should I say is going to help manage Eczema or acting while when you're putting those names on the label. Probably, that's scientific evidence should come in. That's why these products are generally regulated as drugs in cosmetics, but only anecdotal evidence does have a place because that's what informs whether like me like something we don't in just because one product has so much evidence an Mike how much evidence you really have product, but just because it has so much evidence shouldn't. It doesn't mean that everyone out there is going to like it in. Every ruins
Makeup for (the Fantasy) Tour!
"Our main feature today will be tool related now every year and Harry go through everything buying at all. You know I love to buy something for tour and we always talk about the makeup. I'm taking on, too. Because there was no tore this year dastardly Colbrad. I thought it would be fun to talk through the things that I would be taking with me the new things because now having been doing this podcast for three years and having been touring forever. It's interesting to see what does and does make it in. That's new and goes out and What stays like what remains? That's really interesting for me. Hopefully, it's GonNa be interesting you, but you think about it as I can is my travel kit, but it's my most important makeup of the whole years tool. Make up an event makeup, so it's a makeup I. Trust the most that I love the most, and I know is the most reliable so my tool. Makeup Kit is always. Big Priority for me. Slap wise, so we're going to look at what's made it into my talk. It my non existent toolkit. That will be major before that we've got loads of new news absolutely bucketloads first up. I know everyone's so excited about this launch is the fantasy skin launch? They have announced their first three items and predictably fantasy skin skincare. We starting with a cleanser. Atone annoys. I mean basic three steps God bless round of keeping it simple. Now. We're going to look at the individual items. We haven't tried these yet. We haven't got our samples yet. They will be launching at the end of this week. So by the time we've tried them. You could have tried them, but let's all stay in touch and discuss as we know, so. We start off with the total cleanser. There's no east as a cleanser, so it's a cleanser to be technical is to in one cleanser makeup remover. Just cleansers. You'd better wash your face. Morning and night y'all this I'm reading directly from INSTAGRAM? Post! This is not my. These are not my feelings. So the ingredients are Baba. Bob Babo Spa. US Jesus. Christ Lindsey rounders from Barbados, but we just cherry an ingredient with antioxidants, each cherry pat with vitamin C. than an orange, but that doesn't really tell you how much fitness is in this product, but anyway it's got vitamin C in there. It's GOT GINGKO BILOBA checking. Never say to control oil and clarify shine green tea again. Rich in antioxidants, fake, a desert, loving fruit that entire oxidants does a lot of antioxidants, and it's got quince in that era. Fruit infused minerals. I mean. I guess quences right, is it? You can get it in the supermarket in jam form. But I don't know so yeah lots of antioxidants. Some vitamin, C in here an cleanser now the one thing I want to point out because this is what you're GonNa, see throughout the range is as a lot of talk of pause. So this is it purifies pause and helps fight shine long after rinsed off I. Don't know how it's doing that I. Don't know how it lands is helping to fight shy long after your off apart from that it's removed any possible oil causing shine when you using it. But we'll see we'll find out step to the skin. Routine is the fat water, poor refining, toner and serum. Fat Water, so it's called fat water, 'cause it's thick, double see, but also I think just thick with a K. would cover it to unique textures. You can pour in Johann to apply. No cottam pads needed so I think rather than this actually being a traditional toner as we would know it. This is actually more of an. It's thick liquid that you porn. Johanna apply directly to your skin, so you don't need to use cotton pads it's it's an essence. Isn't it? Not really a toner? It's alcohol free. That's fantastic. It's a tone of Serum Combo is an essence that targets targets. Pause improves the look of. Sorts Brighton smooth and fights shine, so it's got nice in a might in. We Love Niacin more Baba's Cherry Cool, Australian, Lemon Myrtle and Hazel water interesting, which is all is is a commonly used ingredient. Some people just use which as long its own good see that here Japanese raisin tree to help detoxify. I don't know what Japanese raising tree is. It, isn't it? Isn't it a grapevine? No, it probably is. Maybe there is a tree. I'm going to Google it. I should have done this before I talked to you about it, but I just saw. These posts are set down to record. I thought it was very important news to share with you. Japanese raisin tree to help deflect. I believe you cactus flower to help hydrate and green tea and fig again Richon toxins, so man antioxidants in here which I love the only thing I don't love about this. Think, that's a tone because attorney plus serum I think they're trying to make it sound like something new, and actually just an essence a that's marketing. Sure whatever the poor refining par don't like I. Don't like when things imply that they can change the size of your pores because they can't. They can just clean them. They can't shrink them. They don't open or close open. Close component goes you put closure policy open. They do not have a door on them. You can just clean them I feel like. Maybe it's of hints at that which I love, but it does look like an interesting product with lots of yummy ingredients. I can't wait to see the full inky I can't wait to see the Highlands Review on this I'm sure we will talk about it next week on our event step. Three of the fifties can sorta step. Is A moisturizer obviously, Hydra visor invisible MOISTURIZER SPF. You know awesome. It's again nice in highland acid. Melon Wild Moat. Watermelon more antioxidants. This is lovely. I love.

Fine lines wrinkles less visible instantly on overtime. I. I don't know because I haven't tried yet.

The Indie Brands That You Need to Know About Right Now
"Okay Carleen. So what's up I? We got gotTA lead with skin. Care Right I want to start out by talking about a new K., beauty skin care line that I think everyone is GonNa. Just want to jump on right away. This is the first ever skin care range developed by SOCO Glam labs. It's called good skin days and skin has brackets around it. It's a four piece range. There is a cleanser moisturizer and a vitamin C serum, three of those launched at the end. End of June, but the toner is actually going to drop later the summer cool and so this Soco Glam that's owned by Charlotte. Show right that's right, so you know that's preeminent online K., beauty retailer founded and curated by Charlotte show. She lived in Korea and is herself a trained to ask the TITIAN now. I actually found this a little bit confusing I. Don't know if you did GEL. But because they do say, it's the first range developed by SOCO Glam labs, but But we know that Charlotte launched then I. Met you and twenty eighteen right, right? That's a line that has the calming blue packaging is like censorial textures decisions about slowing down and enjoying the ritual. That's right and so I was a little confused by that, but I guess Soco Glam labs is so I'm guessing there's probably going to be more brands launching out of this? This is the first one out of the labs, good skin days and of course Oh. Charlotte would still. Still be behind dead and it would be all of her brain power, but really I think what sets it apart from that I met you is it's price point break? Everything is under twenty six dollars, so each product comes in at about half the price of then I met you, so that's a big difference. However, it is also considered clean and cruelty free and made in Korea so if people are to buy one thing, what would you say is the thing to buy? Definitely going to be the vitamin C. Serum I think this is GonNa. Be The best seller. The reason why there's a bit of a backstory behind it first of all I'll give you the name of it. It's the good skin. Days seize the day from the see is like the letter C, a bit of a play on words there. It's twenty six dollars us and. and back in two thousand Seventeen Charlotte actually collaborated with costs are ex so I'm sure you know of that brand? And she collaborated with them to create the costs. Are Ex triple? See Lightening Serum, so that's a lightweight fluid. Twenty point five percent vitamin. C, of course just like any vitamin C serum helps to lift sunspots, acne, scars, and just generally correct hyper pigmentation. And when she launched that I think it just became a huge success, right? It was flying off the shelves. However, they did receive feedback from the Soco Glam community that it had a tendency to oxidise when it wasn't refrigerated Oh. We've heard this about a lot of vitamin C. popular vitamin C. Serums Right. Yes, so that's a fail- Yep. So they. Actually what they started doing was recommending to customers to keep the costs Rx triple C. Serum in the fridge, and in fact keep it inside the box that it came in to prevent any light from getting into it. So she listened to all that feedback and created this new serum, the good you know, the seize the day serum, and said to have the same efficacy as the costs are expert at doesn't have the problem of oxidation so in I'll show you the package here or this bottle in a white opaque bottle, and so yeah, you just keep it in a cool place doesn't. Doesn't have to be in the fridge. So did they do the exact same formulation, or is there a different level of vitamin? C, or what's the main difference? Charlotte is now saying that this new serum is even more effective than the costs are serum. However, it only has ten percent pure vitamin C whereas like I said the costs Rx has twenty point five so. Again I think this. Is that idea that you can't just look at the percentage of the active ingredient? There are more factors that are at play
"The other day I was doing some beauty editor homework and having a little bit of fun and trying out a new eyeliner. It's a brand new eyeliner from a luxury brand and it was A. Like a real kind of like dusty tope collar, and wounded on around no joke around eight thirty in the morning I arrive at my destination arrived hone, which is in the next room and my desk. knows. We actually went somewhere you went out. Did go somewhere. Around one something we went on a car ride. Practicing social distancing everyone really taking it very seriously very seriously and. I looked in the bathroom at the restaurant, and I shut my eyeliner bright neon, Bright Orange Neon I looked like so. It went from dusty tope to neon. Are Yes exactly okay, so? Yes, it was the Colorado to like a Caramel macchiato or like a And, it turned into the Dukes of has complete that. I guess ten percent of listeners right now. WHAT THE HELL! I'll just google. Google. Are, you're so funny. Well, that's what I that's. What I want is no, because here's the thing like I was not trying to be Funky I was seeing Jeff and his family. With the baby I was not like trying to do like a euphoria. You know like Mo okay. HBO four again, Google. If you're not familiar with that show, I was not trying to look Funky, so I was just like okay I. Guess It is what it is now I know so I immediately knew that makeup artist Christopher buckle would be able to explain this phenomenon to me I just had a feeling he would like. Give it to me real so I took a picture of my eyeliner in the bathroom, and he had a few different explanations I said. Oxide is now. He said that. You know he's an oxidation. He said it could be that, but he really got more specific. He goes sometimes. It's the PH in your skin that can change the color. It could be anything from you know of the chemistry that's going in your body chemistry. He's not a doctor and he's not saying he's presuming to be like Oh got pregnant or At least scan or not or hormones, it could be alcohol. Consumption I had a glass of wine. It could be he. You know. He had a funny story from East. That like you know. He had a client that she was drinking wine. You know about an hour after he did her contour and it went gray like their clients who that actually make sense because you can like. Like sweat that out, and it might change the form. Yeah I can't ride in touch. He's like I can't go touch her foundation after you because we have to start from scratch, so he just wanted to reiterate that like make up. You know is chemistry like we're alive, and the chemistry interacts with the products that we put on our face. We're not just this blank canvas. That, you know, it's not A. Sheet of paper that we can just put the colors on from the Sephora Palette and then you know it's all equal like makeup interacts with our bodies, so I thought that was really interesting, and then some people and like this is me I. Don't know about you, but have a lot of red and purple around the I. If. We don't conceal the skin. It's going that redness is going to come through. Any shadow were liner and it's going to alter the color so I'm treating my you know I'm looking at my eyelid. Not all like looks pretty pretty neutral today. Like I didn't rhyme. I didn't put any I didn't put anything on that morning. I was like you know my i. My my my sorry. KINDA PEACH! This is kind of Topaz. Put It on looks cool, and then I'm sweating I'm talking. I'm having food caffeine. The whole thing, Bam Bright Orange, so so should you have done a prime? Exactly? I should have done I should have done. A concealed base should a primer should it against healer? Maybe even should've done a shadow even though I kind of didn't want the look of like perfect shadow within, and you know I didn't want this perfect like done. Look because I was like. We're just going to be sitting outside and having you know. A lunch, yeah! You just want to have like a throw on an eyeliner, but it's A. It's a good tip to 'cause i. feel like more contact has directly with your skin, your sweat in your chemistry, the more likely to be color Balanga at the Laurie Al. Cosmetic Kim Yeah on she talked about she said I. Nobody Calls It. Oxidation is not always oxidation, but like your skin affects what you wear and I remember her talking about Primers before for foundation to to make sure it doesn't shift colors. So, I wouldn't use Promo, normally, because I would think twenty like easy going about it, but I don't know. Do you use primer well? I think that's what you WANNA. Do you're making a little shields between the chemistry of your skin and the eyeliner and you're not using it because you're doing a whole contoured i. look you know it's just to give the line or something neutral to cling onto I do. Use It when I am doing like a look. I like Lara mercy. I- basics primer. It's lights. Good one. There's different shades of choose. You could get skin tone matching and has little applicator. I do not like the applicator little pokey. pokey, stick in my eye. So what you? How do you put it on like I? Swear, I pulled them out of the tube. Put on the back of my hand, Dat, my ring finger on and DAB that onto my eyelid, not for a look just to give like a nice base. It really makes everything's Day, but I'm sure the easy to sheer out. We don't want to really share out. You just WANNA. Get that nice little canvas for your eyeliner so that then you're all your caffeine. Consumption Alcohol and whatever shifted the color isn't getting through to the eyeliner. You know okay. Okay all right. Yet you do use. Primer I used to I used to get into the habit of doing it, and then I think I dislike. Fell by the wayside, and then I didn't like like you, said the pokey sick. Like funny about my eyes lately, so I stopped using it because they didn't like the POGGI. I I. Think you need to try this liner with the primer so that we can see if that was the issue and then if. You have to tell us what it is. Okay. I didn't I know. I'm not giving this liner fair shot. Yes, give it a shot. Jess okay to hammer.
