    MECCA education manager for skincare Lucy Shaw gives us her top tips for keeping your skin glowing and hydrated (not dull and dry!) in the treachery of winter. 


    And, acclaimed naturopath Anthia Koullouros (BHSC ND DBM DH MATMS) explains what happens to our wellbeing in winter, and what we can do to protect our immunity, energy levels, and skin. Turns out, hibernation is a thing.

    MECCA Talks MECCA, with founder Jo Horgan

    MECCA Talks MECCA, with founder Jo Horgan

    Welcome to the first ever episode of MECCA Talks, your access all areas pass to the beauty, business, and lifestyle experts we call our community.


    In today’s episode…


    We meet our hosts, MECCA chief marketing officer, Kate Blythe, and head of content, Zara Wong.


    Then, we go back to our very beginnings in an exclusive conversation with MECCA founder and co-CEO, Jo Horgan. From misplacing the takings on the first day of opening on Toorak Road in 1997 to 100+ stores filled with the best brands, education and experiences beauty has to offer, this is a chat full of wisdom for beauty obsessives and entrepreneurs-to-be alike.


    We wrap it all up with a (not-so) quickfire Q&A from the MECCA community.


    Hosts: Kate Blythe, Zara Wong
    Guest: Jo Horgan
    Producers: Kerri Gordon, Michael Liberale
     
    Through M-Power, MECCA aims to help 10,000 girls finish secondary school by the year 2025, and we will achieve this through our work locally in Victoria with The Skyline Education Foundation, nationally with Stars Foundation and internationally with CAMFED.
