Do you feel the beauty industry is out to make you feel old and insecure now that you’re in midlife? You are far from alone. Guest Rachel Weingarten is a beauty historian, beauty expert, consultant and former celebrity makeup artist who has also written the book. “Hello Gorgeous! Beauty Products in America 40’s-60’s” and knows a thing or two about this subject. She and Lauren delve into some of the beauty myths we are lead to believe, how the past year has changed our attitudes towards beauty for the long-term, how we have been negatively impacted by celebrity culture, and so much more.
If you don’t follow Chemist Confessions on Instagram you should. Former formulation chemists Victoria Fu and Gloria Lu also have a new book Skincare Decoded which is a must-read. Lauren talks to them about clean beauty (and if it’s really better), how to properly layer skincare products together, if the expensive products really worth the money and their strict no-no list.
