Dr. Haroon Kazem: Today’s episode of the body clock podcast is brought to you by Dermala. Dermala is a personalized acne treatment kit that fights the cause of acne, not just the symptoms. Acne happens when bad bacteria overpower your good bacteria. Dermala uses the power of your microbiome to strengthen the good bacteria to fight the acne causing bad bacteria on and in your body.
Each kit contains four products formulated to individual needs – an AM/PM cleanser, AM/PM treatment pads, daily pre and probiotic mix, and targeted pimple patches for stubborn pimples. The products are made with clean, natural ingredients and a special blend of pre, pro, and post biotics that fight acne from inside out and outside in. The kit is complemented by Dermala acne tracker by tracking the treatment progress with the app.
The product formulation is continually optimized based on the treatment results. Take the skin quiz on Dermala.com. Get your personalized kit delivered to your door and start fighting your #FOBO or your fear of breaking out. That’s dermala.com. Thanks and hope you enjoy the show.
Dr. Sohaib Imtiaz: Hi guys! Welcome to another episode of the body clock podcast by Owaves. Today, I’m joined by clear skin doc, otherwise known as Dr. Aaliya Yaqub, who is an internal medicine physician. She’s also done a Fellowship in Dermatology at Stanford and she’s affiliated with Stanford as well. She’s quite an innovator and she’s been involved with quite a few different startups in an advisory capacity as well as being a founder.
Aaliya is someone who’s quite active on social media and is quite an inspiration for many people, as well as women, so it being International Women’s Day, it’s a perfect time to have Aaliya on – couldn’t imagine anyone better to be being a good role model for women around the world. She’s doing so much. She’s also a mother and she seems to be able to really manage her time very well which is a concept of Owaves revolving around time. So nice to have you on Aaliya.
Dr. Aaliya Yaqub: Well, thank you so much Sohaib. I think today is perfect. Happy International Women’s Day to everyone.
Dr. Sohaib Imtiaz: No, I think the listeners will be really looking forward to what you have to say. So to begin with, you’ve been involved with so many different things. Do you want to give the listeners a bit of an introduction of what you do and your journey from Madison into this entrepreneurial innovation world?
