    “The Great Reset” With Dermalogica Founder Jane Wurwand, LIVE from Los Angeles! Extended Cut

    “The Great Reset” With Dermalogica Founder Jane Wurwand, LIVE from Los Angeles! Extended Cut

    Today we’re welcoming Jane Wurwand, co-founder of Dermalogica, the skincare brand Jill can’t stop raving about! Recording straight from their HQ in Carson, California, we meet the legend who managed to take an indie skincare spa brand and turn it into a multi-million-dollar success story, passing the torch of self-actualization to hundreds of female entrepreneurs with their education-first approach in the process. In this do-not-miss episode, Jane gives us a sneak peek into her newly launched book, Skin In The Game: Everything You Need is Already Inside You. 
     
    For anyone looking for a post-pandemic reset, Jane schools us on how to tap into your own purpose, sharing the lessons she’s learned through intimate, say-what?? stories. Find out how her father’s early passing ignited a fire in Jane as a 5-year-old girl growing up in Scotland, and how a trip to Japan inspired Dermalogica’s iconic Daily Microfoliant exfoliating powder – now celebrating its 20th anniversary. Plus, find out what Jane has to say about “Clean Washing,” the one thing that still needs to change in the industry, and why to her, “Beauty” is a dirty word.
     
    *Special thanks to Dermalogica for providing travel and accommodations to Breaking Beauty for this story.
