Is it us or has the number of anti-aging skincare products available skyrocketed in the past few years? If you’re confused about what to use, what ingredients do, what order to put on products, and what’s harmful versus safe, this is the episode for you. Dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman, who has been consulting with Elizabeth Arden on new skincare products, is here to explain everything—in words you can understand (promise!). Before the interview, we discuss this article explaining South Korea’s Escape The Corset movement and backlash against rigid beauty standards. We also weigh in on new line Nécessaire and the prevalence of high-end sex gels.
