    Ep 28: What Happened When We Tried Milky Foot

    We're back for another episode of Beauty IQ Uncensored, brought to you by Adore Beauty. 

    What’s on this episode? We’re glad you asked...

    Milky Foot:

    Could there be a better time to try Milky Foot?! We think not. Hannah took one for the team and tried it (although we do recommend listening back to Episode 18 with podiatrist Sarah to see if it's suitable for you). We find out what the process is like and how long you should expect your feet to peel for! Also, we can assure you, this content is absolutely not sponsored.

    See Milky Foot FAQs here : https://milkyfoot.com.au/faqs/

    If you have a history of skin allergy such as eczema, nail fungal infection or open wounds, we recommend you consult your healthcare practitioner before using the product.

    Ep 27: Exfoliation 101

    We're back for another episode of Beauty IQ Uncensored, brought to you by Adore Beauty. 

    What’s on this episode? We’re glad you asked...

    Smelly feet:

    Dial a podiatrist! Our fave podiatrist, Sarah, gave us some insight into smelly feet, plus some awesome tips on how to prevent smelly feet from occurring in the first place, like leaving your shoes out in the sun to kill bacteria, using anti-fungal washing detergent, and wearing cotton and wool fibres.

    All things exfoliation:

    Dermal clinician James Vivian joins us to chat EXFOLIATION, and he does not muck around. We cover physical, chemical and enzymatic exfoliation in detail: what each of them does, who should do what and how you should add exfoliation into your skincare routine.

    James shared some of his fave products with us too:

    Ep 26: All The Ways You Can Treat Redness

    Ep 26: All The Ways You Can Treat Redness

    We're back for another episode of Beauty IQ Uncensored, brought to you by Adore Beauty. 

    What’s on this episode? We’re glad you asked...

    Ingrown Hairs:

    Jo asked her ex-colleague, cosmetic nurse Kristie Phillips to shed some light on ingrown hairs: how to treat them, what causes them and why laser hair removal is a game-changer. Remember, don't put AHAs on your labia - and if your ingrown hairs don't resolve on their own, see a dermatologist.

    Treatment for redness (Laser Genesis):

    Brooke Holmes from Me Skin & Body joins us to chat all things Laser Genesis (aka the most magical skin treatment of all time). We discuss what causes redness, how to treat rosacea, and why this special laser is great for treating all sorts of concerns.

    You can have Laser Genesis at Me Skin & Body in South Yarra: https://www.instagram.com/p/B9oKQA8pW7l/

    A quick Google search should reveal a clinic that offers this treatment in your area.

    Our guest on today's episode talks about the potential link between gut health and inflammatory skin conditions like rosacea. Research indicates the possible role of a gut-skin connection in rosacea. You can read more about the research into the gut-skin connection here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5718124/

An informative, funny and wholesome poddy

Love the podcast so much. It was the Podcast I Didn’t Know I needed (PWDKIN) ha! I look forward to listening to it, and it seems to cover all the burning questions I have. Hannah and Joanna’s laughs are contagious, there’s something really comforting and wholesome about them. Thank you and keep it coming xx

Great duo

Loving this, helping me get thro iso!!
You girls have the best banter which really makes this podcast work. It is fun to listen to and content is always different. Started on Retinol and daily sun screen after listening, helping my face but not so much my bank account. Hope Joanna is enjoying reading this.

Learning So Much!!

Hey Ladies I love listening to your podcasts! I listen when I’m at work (I work at a iron ore mine site in WA driving haul dumps trucks)and it helps the 12hr shift go by... I’m embarrassed to admit how slack I was with my skincare and thanks to you ladies I have stepped it up and am loving the results already! I love that you keep it real and aren’t afraid to talk about the cringey stuff! Thanks guys! X
