Reporting on The Skin-Lightening Market With BuzzFeed's Megha Rajagopalan Eyewitness Beauty

    • Fashion & Beauty

Annie and Nick talk with BuzzFeed News international correspondent Megha Rajagopalan about the controversial marketing of skin-lightening products in Asia and Africa by global beauty corporations (the same ones that expressed social-media solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement). Rajagopalan's reporting has added to the mounting pressure these companies are facing from citizens and media alike to rethink (and, potentially, discontinue) the problematic yet popular "skin-lightening" or "skin-whitening" category. Plus, Annie and Nick try to unpack Alicia Keys' new Keys Soulcare concept, and discuss some good news (magic mushrooms?) and bad news (COVID-19) for those struggling with depression. And so much more....Find Megha on Twitter: https://twitter.com/megharaMegha can be reached at megha.rajagopalan@buzzfeed.com.
