    Wear Sunscreen? This is Required Listening

    Wear Sunscreen? This is Required Listening

    Are chemical sunscreens really worse than mineral sunscreens? Are you applying spray sunscreen incorrectly? And what's problematic about the term "reef safe"? We have Menas Kizoulis, Scientific Engagement Director at Johnson & Johnson Consumer, Inc, the company behind brands like Neutrogena, Aveeno and Neostrata, as our guest today. Menas has invented many patents and conducted clinical research; he knows a lot about sun protection. He's also a melanoma survivor. (Wear your sunscreen and reapply!) Menas answers many questions you submitted via Instagram, including what SPF level is best, how to reapply sunscreen over your makeup and more.


    We also discuss what's happening with Susan Yara and her brand Naturium, plus two new launches from Glossier and Kosas.

    Lube, Irritating Skin Care Ingredients and Product Existentialism with Nécessaire's Randi Christiansen

    Randi Christiansen is on a quest to find the necessary. For her, this means finding innovation over inventing something brand new; products that are crafted meticulously, look beautiful, feel good to the touch and are better than what's already in the world. It's not excess, it's editing your routine. The scandinavian co-founder of Nécessaire worked for many years as an executive ast Estee Lauder Companies, with brands like La Mer and Tom Ford. (We know.) She took her expertise and applied it to Nécessaire, a Gloss Angeles favorite. Nécessaire as owned the bodycare space, focusing on face-grade ingredients and providing options without fragrance, including products like body wash, deodorant, body lotion, lubricant and body scrub. Randi talks to us the meaning and reason behind the brand, what ingredients she has found are most irritating to the skin, why The Sex Gel is considered part of body care and the next launch we can expect from the brand.
