Welcome to Adore Beauty's podcast Beauty IQ Uncensored, with hosts Beauty Editor Joanna and beauty newbie Hannah getting real about every aspect of beauty. No topic is off-limits - from retinol to bum hair - and you can expect a healthy dose of education and laughs. Warning: Not suitable for the school pick up. New episodes released every Monday.

    Throwback! Why Is My Skin Always Great After Spending Time In The Ocean?

    Throwback! Why Is My Skin Always Great After Spending Time In The Ocean?

    Adore Beauty Acknowledges First Nations People as the Traditional Owners across the lands and waters of Australia. We recognise and pay our respects to Elders past, present and future, whose lands were never ceded. 

    Dive into the archives with Hannah and Jo as they revisit a fan-favourite throwback episode. This time, they're busting myths surrounding a highly asked listener question: Why is my skin always so good after a day at the beach? Joanna & Hannah explain how your skin can react to the ocean, what seawater is made up of and what they pack in their beach bags.

    Dr Ryan De Cruz from Southern Dermatology joins us to discuss antioxidants, free radicals and oxidative damage. Plus, he shares his fave antioxidant ingredients and whether or not a general 'antioxidant serum' is gonna cut it. You can follow Dr Ryan on IG: @drryan_dermatologist

    After 4 years co-hosting Beauty IQ Uncensored, Jo's stepping away from the mic (but don't worry, you'll probably still hear her voice every now and then). Next week will be Jo's last episode, before we take a short break and return to regular programming with some new voices!

    Pap smears have changed a bit over the last few years, so Dr Lucinda joins us to discuss cervical screenings, HPV, what happens if you have abnormal cells, and why you shouldn't get too worried.

    Hair Extensions

    Hair extension expert Carla Lawson joins us to discuss the different types of extensions, how to prevent damage, what haircare she recommends for extension-wearers, and how much good quality extension can cost (we were shocked!) You can find Carla's salon in Port Melbourne, or on Instagram @carlalawsonhairextensions.
