In today’s episode, reporter Jessica DeFino explains how our skin works, and how beauty culture is actually damaging our skin health with skin “care” products. This is one of my favorite episodes on my podcast so far, (up there with my Laziness Does Not Exist episode from a year ago).
Just like our relationship with food and diets, where we are led to believe we need diets, which leads to worse health and a worse relationship with food longterm… the same thing is true for our skin. Beauty companies have convinced us we need their products, but their products are disrupting our natural skin barrier and biome, and lead us to needing MORE of their products. Great for them. Not so great for us.
