    Ep. 372: Varicose Vein Treatment, Desk Lipsticks & The Week’s Beauty News

    Ep. 372: Varicose Vein Treatment, Desk Lipsticks & The Week’s Beauty News

    How do you fix varicose veins on your legs? Jess shares her experience getting endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) and a microphlebectomy, and explains why varicose veins are different than spider veins, the symptoms, treatments (some may be covered by medical insurance), and what healing has been like for her. (Warning: She explains the details of her procedure, so you may want to skip that part if you’re squeamish.) Before that, we discuss price increases at The Ordinary; Goop’s Hands Off My Vagina candle; Rebundle’s sustainable, plant-based hair extensions; and asbestos contamination in talc-based products. Plus, which lipsticks are worthy of the title “desk lipstick”?

    Ep. 371: How Makeup Changed the Face of American History with Ilise S. Carter

    Ep. 371: How Makeup Changed the Face of American History with Ilise S. Carter

    Author (and sideshow performer!) Ilise S. Cater shares the fascinating history of makeup in the U.S.A., from Martha Washington’s multipurpose rouge made with whale earwax to the “Because You’re Worth It” era of the 1970s, when “makeup learned to talk feminism.” Along the way, we’ll meet the first celebrity influencer, find out if the suffragettes actually wore red lipstick, learn how Hollywood—and film itself—influenced the beauty landscape, and hear the rags-to-riches tales of some of America’s pioneering beauty entrepreneurs.

    Jenn had an at-home hair color breakthrough, Jess talked to Cher (!), and there's so much more to chat about, including industry news, Kate Hudson’s foray into skincare, and Neen, a subscription-model makeup line from Jeanine Lobell, the founder of Stila. Plus, we Raise A Wand to a foundation that covers the flaky side effects of Accutane (isotretinoin), the German pharmacy foot cream that heals super-dry feet, and the only moisturizer that works when your rosacea is flaring and even water stings.

    Ep. 369: How Josie Maran Became Beauty’s “Rebel-Rascal” CEO

    Ep. 369: How Josie Maran Became Beauty’s “Rebel-Rascal” CEO

    Josie Maran is the only CEO we know who rode a horse bareback (while naked) for work, started a band with Nicole Richie, starred in a vampire movie, and created a multimillion-dollar beauty business after a chance encounter with a dewy-skinned septuagenarian in Saint-Tropez. She’s here to share those stories and more, including how she cured her stepdaughter’s eczema without pharmaceuticals and why she appointed her mom Chief Aesthetic Officer of her company (cheesecake may have something to do with it).

    Welcome to the future! We’re talking about the most promising beauty finds at the Consumer Electronics Show, including a gadget to make at-home hair coloring easier, a smart fragrance device that packs 100 possible perfumes into one bottle, and a toothbrush with a camera (do we really need that?). Plus, there’s lots of news to catch up on, including a law that requires Tennessee salon workers to get domestic violence training; Chanel's new (more sustainable) beauty line; and, in Jenn's Science Corner, astronauts making bandages out of their own skin cells.
