    The 3 Pillars of How the Face Ages With Dr. Amir Karam

    The 3 Pillars of How the Face Ages With Dr. Amir Karam

    Facial aging: what happens when we get older? Dr. Amir Karam, the San Diego-based double board-certified plastic surgeon, promotes the fact that aging is inevitable, but also, taking care of your skin is a crucial part of prevention. In today's episode, he explains how skin changes contribute to facial aging just as much as volume loss and laxity, what types of skincare products are pertinent to keeping your skin looking pristine, how filler (when it goes overboard) can cause scar tissue and ultimately stay in the skin, the impetus for creating Vertical Restore (his incredible facelift technique), what treatments he'd personally avoid as a plastic surgeon, and the point of differentiation with his own skincare line, KaramMD.

    Is the 10-Step K-Beauty Routine Totally Made Up?

    Is the 10-Step K-Beauty Routine Totally Made Up?

    Welcome to Beauty Court. Today, we're playing listener voicemails regarding a question we posed at the end of episode 248: do founder stories influence you to buy a product? Alternatively, if a founder's beliefs don't agree with yours, if the product is good — do you care? This week we also celebrate National Liptick Day and there's major sales going down at Ulta Beauty. Twitter has been abuzz with the reveal that the 10-step K-Beauty routine may not be a thing Koreans *actually* do. So how did this "trend" get blown out of proportion? And finally, there's another celebrity beauty scandal: did Treslucé Beauty copy their brand identity from Araceli Beauty? Kirbie and Sara break down everything you need to know so you can decide for yourself.

    The Benefits of Mandelic Acid For Acne With Tiara Willis (MakeupForWOC)

    The Benefits of Mandelic Acid For Acne With Tiara Willis (MakeupForWOC)

    Tiara Willis is a 20-year-old licensed esthetician whose influence began on Twitter as @MakeupForWOC. Now, she's leading the conversation on the platform about important skincare topics and sharing her favorite products (and the ones she's not a fan of) with her engaged community. Tiara amplified the "two finger rule" tip for sunscreen application, changing how people think about and wear SPF, and made CeraVe a must-have for beauty fanatics. She's on the show to talk about her experience with acne — which is what encouraged her to attend esthetics school and learn about the skin — and how she helps others on their skincare journey. She'll explain why mandelic acid is *the* ingredient you should be using if you're experiencing acne, the brands she feels are the most effective for clearing up the skin, why laser hair removal might be a good option for acne, and will walk us through how she would treat a client coming to her for help.

    3rd Anniversary Special! From Spotify Live

    It’s our third anniversary, Glamgelenos! To celebrate, we hosted our very first live recording via Spotify Live and it really felt like a party! So many of you joined us to discuss this week’s news — Khloe K.’s baby No. 2 with Tristan, the art of vabbing, and Kim K’s filler denial. You shared some of your WOYFs and we played a fun round of Data Girl based on the latest social beauty shopping trends. We had so much fun hanging with everyone — cheers to more live eps and many more years with our Glamgelenos!
