Ep 24 - The Glow Down Hits The Road: Debunking Myths and Serving Truths About Daily Sun Damage
3 days ago
In partnership with Olay. We are so excited for our second sponsored episode!! Because the more partnerships we do, the more damn good stories we can bring you about the best-selling beauty products lining store aisles. Buckle up! Welcome to Beauty Editors in Cars Getting Coffee - just kidding! It’s just your friendly Breaking Beauty Podcast hosts, Jill and Carlene in our first ever ride along episode. We tour the streets in Carlene’s SUV with Olay scientist Dr. Frauke Neuser to chat about the myths and truths behind daily sun damage—for reals. We get to the bottom of your q's as you hunt for your Holy Grail SPF like: What does SPF in my makeup really do anyway? And, how are you supposed to reapply daily moisturizer with SPF on top of makeup? (we FEEL you!!) Carlene reveals the number one reason she thinks her face is practically wrinkle-free post-40, while Jill shares the reason her Mom would get pulled over by law enforcement - all in the name of sun protection. Plus, Dr. Neuser—who we caught up with while en route to her stint on The Dr. Oz Show (NBD)—explains why over half of women (especially millennials!) in North America don’t wear SPF on a regular basis, and how far daily moisturizers have come in delivering a lotion you’ll actually want to wear under makeup. Finally, we drill the good scientist about how much skincare espionage is really going down in the industry and is AI the future of skincare? AND, we find out what the lady at the drive-through thinks about all of this.
