    The Beauty of it All S02 E08 - Older Women in Beauty

    The Beauty of it All S02 E08 - Older Women in Beauty

    Where are all the older women in beauty?
    In this episode we are asking the all-important question – does the beauty industry have an age issue?
    Why is the older generation so rarely represented? Older women are the fastest growing age demographic in the world, so why are beauty brands not recognising this and embracing it in their campaigns? We delve deep into the subject with guest host Nadine Baggot - a YouTube and social media sensation and guests.

    Featured are: Guest host Nadine Baggot, Blogger and author Louise Boyce and make-up artist Ruby Hammer MBE.

    The Beauty of it All S02 E07 - Beauty Dysmorphia

    Is the pursuit of perfection leading people to lose sight of how they really look?
    Is beauty dysmorphia becoming the new normal in a world so obsessed with social media?
    Whether it’s using apps to alter our faces or going under the knife and having injectables, why is it that some of us only seek happiness in what we see in the mirror or from validation on our appearance from others?
    In this episode we explore the effect body dysmorphia can have on a person and what we can do about it.


    Featured are: Geordie Shore star, anti-bullying ambassador and newly qualified nutrition coach Holly Hagan and psychologist, author and broadcaster Dr Linda Papadopoulos.

In this episode our guests will reveal their own experiences, both good and bad, as well as discussing some of the key issues.
    Which brands are getting it right and what should we be focusing on more?
    Are women who wear hijab visible enough, what about the representation of non-binary people, or those with disabilities?

Informative and proactive- hygiene poverty

Great work by Superdrug, leading by example and tackling different topics with advice for everyone to get involved and be proactive. This episode for instance was eye opening, needs to be talked about more by the industry. Can’t wait to see if my local Superdrug has a beauty bank and can’t wait to get involved with the work The beauty bank are doing. Thank you!
