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.
Acne positivity ftw— and yet, many still struggle with acne and self esteem. So much so that we felt it was high time to dedicate an entire episode to the topic. And who better to be our guest than Dr. Sandra Lee, aka Dr. Pimple Popper herself!? The dermatologist’s Youtube videos have gone so viral amongst ‘popaholics’, she even has her own show on TLC. Perhaps you’ve seen one of her top-ranking live-extraction videos, which have earned up to 46 million views. (Is there such a thing as pimple porn?) Or maybe you’re one of her 3.5 million Instagram followers, who tune in for “exploding lava” and accidentally learn something important about skin in the process.
In today’s episode, Dr. Sandra Lee schools us on the various kind of acne out there (like what are sebaceous filaments versus plain ol’ blackheads?) The skin expert also shares her top tips on what you can do in-office and at home to make a visible difference. Then, stay tuned as she sheds some light on how to tackle acne and aging at once. Finally, Dr. Sandra gives us the skinny on what’s in her own beauty cabinet at home. But not before your humble hosts discuss the pro’s majorly accessible skincare line, SLMD Skincare, available at Target as of this summer.
