    S7 E4 – Eat This (Not That) Skin Health Edition with Leigh Brandon

    The skin is the body's largest organ. It serves as a protective barrier between our internal organs and the outside world. Despite its vital role in maintaining our overall health and well-being, we tend to abuse it the most. And it's not just sun, environmental aggressors and skincare that damage the skin either. It's also what we are putting into our bodies that's reflecting on the outside.



    Leigh Brandon boasts over twenty years of expertise as a functional medicine practitioner and a renowned authority on skin health. His profound journey from grappling with severe cystic acne to emerging as a prominent advocate for holistic wellness is evident in his book titled "Eliminate Adult Acne for Good." This comprehensive guide offers invaluable insights into enhancing skin health from the inside out, reflecting Brandon's dedication to empowering individuals on their path to clear and radiant skin.



    As an author, podcaster, and esteemed member of The CHEK Institute Faculty, Leigh Brandon disseminates his expertise worldwide, encouraging individuals to adopt an integrated approach to health and wellness. Through his various platforms, Leigh inspires audiences globally to prioritize holistic well-being and embark on a journey towards optimal health.



    Join Lauren and Leigh as they engage in a discussion about: why a skin-friendly diet is not one-size-fits-all; what we should NOT be eating for optimal skin health; what we SHOULD be eating, why mindset is so important; Leigh's own journey with skin health and how it effected him personally; the four main causes of adult acne and how to take steps today to improve your skin.

    S7 E3 How To Get Deep Sleep Without Medication in Midlife with Morgan Adams

    We have touched on sleep before but it still eludes many of us in midlife. So we can always learn more! Even if we have tried to improve our sleep hygiene, bedtime routines and have done "all the things" we can still become desperate. Therefore, some of us have turned to sleeping pills and aids which can become highly addictive. So what are the alternatives?



    Morgan Adams is a transformative holistic sleep coach who empowers women to conquer their battle with sleepless nights, without reliance on sleep medications. She guides them in rekindling their relationship with sleep, paving the way for less stressful and more fulfilling days. Having struggled herself with insomnia and dependency on prescription sleeping pills for almost a decade, she knows intimately the profound impact sleep has on one's quality of life.



    Join Lauren and Morgan as they talk about: the disadvantages of sleeping pills; evidence-based alternatives; the pros and cons of sleep trackers; the importance of morning and evening routines and what they look like; 3 impactful and free ways to improve your sleep; the constructive worry technique; and why sleep divorces, while popular, are not always the best solution.

    Did you know 50+ million women in the US and nearly 1 billion globally are expected to experience menopause by 2025? If you are a woman in midlife, you already know how much menopause can wreak havoc on many aspects of your life both physically and emotionally. But what does it do specifically to our skin? It goes beyond sagging and crepiness. It can affect your confidence. Luckily because this is now recognized as a booming sector, there are many new skincare products on and entering the market daily. But do they work?

Her portfolio includes blockbuster movies like Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, and TV shows including Parks & Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Modern Family, Barry and The Goldbergs.

In August of 2023 Finlay+Green launched their skin revitalizing moisturizer to address the unique needs of skin during the menopausal transition.



    Please join Lauren and Helen as they discuss: what menopause does to our skin; why today's youth are so afraid of aging; the ways menopause can affect our mental health and confidence; ways in which we feel good in our skin and remain body positive; what we can do for anti-aging prevention; makeup tips for midlife; and recommended resources for discussing menopause with loved ones.

    S7 E1 – How AI Can Bridge The Gap Between Our Lifespan And Healthspan

    S7 E1 – How AI Can Bridge The Gap Between Our Lifespan And Healthspan

    According to the latest research, life expectancy has risen dramatically, increasing 26 years since the mid-20th century. However our healthspan (healthy years free of disease) has not followed suit. There is a significant gap between our lifespan and healthspan driven by the pandemic of chronic diseases afflicting a growing aging population.



    The current overburdened and reactive health care system is compounding this lag in quality of life, where health risks linger for years and are detected late. The age-old quest for healthy longevity begins with predictive healthcare. And while AI may seem a bit scary to us GenXers, its potential could prove very helpful when it comes to analyzing biomarkers on healthspan and longevity.



    Jim Kean CEO of Molecular You, is a pioneering senior tech executive with a focus on innovative, disruptive, consumer-oriented health and wellness digital experiences. The consistent theme: creating user delight, loyalty, and retention while fundamentally re-engineering the cost of delivery. He founded WellnessFx and played a significant role in online health communities as President of Sapient Health Network, which later merged with WebMD.



    Join Lauren and Jim as they examine: how we can feel more at ease with AI; how AI can help with our healthcare; how IA is it being used right now; how AI can help bridge the gap between healthspan and longevity; how AI’s role is shifting from reactive healthcare to proactive healthcare; how Molecular You assess an individual's distinct blood profile to anticipate potential health risks and catch chronic diseases early; how blood test results should be used; success stories using AI in healthcare and so much more.



    If we are living to be centenarians, wouldn't those extra years be better if we were to age well and not just age?

    S6 E15 The Importance Of Skin Cycling With Dr. Simran Sethi

    S6 E15 The Importance Of Skin Cycling With Dr. Simran Sethi

    Skin cycling? What is that? And is it really important as we age? In a nutshell, skin cycling is taking a cyclical approach to your facial skincare routine by using specific products on different days to regenerate the skin and improves skin quality. It's actually not that difficult but needs some explaining. And once you understand it, you will want to approach your skincare this way.



    Dr. Simran Sethi has practiced Internal Medicine for over 16 years. Not only is she a doctor, she also has her MBA from Wharton. Her background as an internist has given her a strong foundation in understanding the essentials in achieving and maintaining optimal health from the inside out. Dr. Sethi's mission with RenewMD and her skin by Dr. Simran Sethi line is to empower women who have struggled with the right skincare products and treatments for skin and to celebrate their complexion rather than working against it.



    Please join Lauren and Dr. Sethi as they discuss: skin cycling and why it's a hot topic lately; how one skin cycles; why skin cycling is important for middle-aged skin; what skin fasting is and how it differs form skin cycling; how you can tell what is causing irritation and inflammation; how her skin by Dr. Simran Sethi line is different; and so much more.

    S6 E14 Discussing The Tween Anti-Aging Skincare Phenomenon with Flyte.70

    S6 E14 Discussing The Tween Anti-Aging Skincare Phenomenon with Flyte.70

    Did you know that girls as young as 10 are walking into Sephora and buying anti-aging skincare products that are meant for our skin? "Why?" you might ask. Because they have seen their peers unboxing and using them on TikTok. So now it's trendy to buy Drunk Elephant Bronzing Drops with peptides for $34 or Dior Lip Glow Oil for $40 or even Summer Fridays Midnight Ritual Retinol Renewal Serum for $69! Yes, tweens are putting anti-aging retinols and Vitamin C's and other acids on their face because it's trendy and aspirational, but it's also hurting their skin.





    Why are we as middle aged women told to embrace aging and yet teens fear it? How did we get here?



    Elena Frankel and Carolyn Barber are the founders of Flyte.70, a beauty brand that focuses on grown-up skin. They believe life is about embracing, not fighting, change and that we are as youthful as we feel...not by the numbers on our birthday cake. They understand that no matter how many layers of full-coverage concealer or contour sticks we apply, we won’t magically transform into our 20-year-old selves and that we need to be okay with that.



    Join Lauren, Elena and Carolyn as they discuss: what lead to this irrational fear of aging; if TikTok or parents are driving the bus; who is paying for this expensive skincare and why; how stores might deal with this (if they can) and calm the dopamine needs of our tweens and teens; how we can talk some sense into teenage girls to not buy into the hype; how teens are ruining their skin; ingredients teens needs to stay away from, and so much more.

My Face is Falling and I Can’t Get Up

I listened to the podcast. It was great. I learned a lot-EXCEPT pricing. I really wanted some price ranges. Also, a podcast on how to find a good plastic surgeon where you live would be helpful.

Keep up the good work!

So helpful, so informative, so honest

Every episode I listen to I learn so much and feel grateful to have be been handed such valuable information not just in the area of beauty but women’s health. Thank you.

Excellent

Great advice, easy to follow. Quick podcast that kept me engaged. Good to know that I'm not alone in sleep issues. Given the 3 - 3 - 3 Idea, looks like I don't have apnea or iknsomnia. But as far as the cell phone is concerned - - GUILTY!
