Ep 209 - The #DamnGood Skin Barrier-Boosting Creams We’ll Use Forever
“Barrier Repair” is a big beauty buzzword - but what does it really mean? Today we’re bringing you a little Skin Barrier 101, along with a roundup of our #damngood skin-saving favorites.
We’ve officially joined #GirlBoss Nation. It’s what happens when you sit down with Girl Boss founder Sophia Amoruso, the poster woman for females killing it at work and in life. First there was the fashion label she started, Nasty Gal, then there was that Netflix show, and of course Girl Boss, her best-selling book and Girl Boss Radio. And don’t even get us started on her killer Instagram style! Which is why we had to sit down with the queen of entrepreneurs when she dropped into town with Shoppers Drug Mart’s Beauty Boutique event, Be Bold With Beauty.
Stay tuned for the full #glowdown on all the makeup currently on the fashion influencer’s #topshelf; why she ditched her hair extensions, and what his-and-her tattoos Sophia recently had inked with her boyfriend. Plus, we get the backstory on which of her famously fearless Instagram posts (The Shiggy Challenge, that Ivanka Trump manifesto…) are currently going viral.
But before allll of that, Jill and Carlene laser in on the topic of retinol, revealing answers to your top five most pressing questions about the gold standard skincare ingredient. In partnership with our friends at Elizabeth Arden, we chat with Manhattan-based consulting dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman, to find out who’s best suited to retinol; how to work it into your routine; and what not to do if you want to avoid any dreaded peeling effect. In this breaking episode of The Damn Goods, we review Elizabeth Arden’s new Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum, a single-dose innovation that locks retinol’s potency inside a precious little pink pouch.
