    The Science of Beauty: Stress

    The Science of Beauty: Stress

    We are bringing you a new series from Allure: The Science of Beauty, where we answer the tough questions about skincare, hair, and more. If you love beauty and are curious about the science behind it, you're going to love this episode on stress.
    You can't always control a stressful situation, but you can control the way you — and in some ways, even your skin and hair — react to one. During this episode, Belisa Vranich, psychologist and founder of The Breathing Class, walks Michelle and Jenny through simple exercises that use breath to bring peace of mind. Next up is Amy Wechsler, one of very few humans to be board-certified in dermatology and psychiatry, who stops by to discuss the cruel and unusual ways stress can impact our skin and hair, and what we can do about it. Now, take a deep breath and press play.

    The Science of Beauty: Shampoo

    The Science of Beauty: Shampoo

    We are bringing you a new series from Allure: The Science of Beauty, where we answer the tough questions about skincare, hair, and more. If you love beauty and are curious about the science behind it, you're going to love this episode on shampoo.
    As the old saying goes: An acid a day (or, uh, every few days if you're sensitive) keeps breakouts, fine lines, and dullness away. And no, we don't mean that kind of acid. In this episode, we're talking about AHAs and BHAs — the acids commonly used in skin care to help slough off dead cells and keep complexions bright. First, Michelle and Jenny try a product that proves how powerful acids can be — and completely gross-out their loved ones in the process. Then, dermatologist Laurel Naversen Geraghty (who — fun fact! — is a former Allure editor) stops by to help make sense of when and how to use these powerful skin-care ingredients.

    The Science of Beauty: Vitamins in Skin Care

    The Science of Beauty: Vitamins in Skin Care

    We are bringing you a new series from Allure: The Science of Beauty, where we answer the tough questions about skincare, makeup, and more. If you love beauty and are curious about the science behind it, you're going to love this episode on vitamins in skin care.
    You know vitamins as the micronutrients our body needs in order to function, but when applied topically, vitamins can have a profound effect on the health and appearance of our skin. In this episode, Michelle and Jenny learn about the man who first gave these micronutrients a name (he just so happens to have a very cool one himself) and tell the forgotten tale of the lost vitamins. Then, with the help of Dr. Frauke Neuser, PhD, Principal Scientist & Senior Director of Science Communications at Olay, Michelle and Jenny separate the facts from the fluff when it comes to vitamins and your skin. Yes, you should be using a vitamin C serum. And no, patting on vitamin D won't make your body produce more.

    The Science of Beauty: Wrinkles

    The Science of Beauty: Wrinkles

    We are bringing you a new series from Allure: The Science of Beauty, where we answer the tough questions about skincare, makeup, and more. If you love beauty and are curious about the science behind it, you're going to love this episode on wrinkles.
    Let's get one thing straight: It's a privilege to have wrinkles. But if you want your skin to look as youthful as you feel, modern medicine has a few tricks up its sleeve, and injectables like Botox are chief among them. Ophthalmologist Jean Carruthers sits down with Michelle and Jenny to tell the truly unbelievable tale of how she "accidentally" discovered that botulinum toxin could smooth brows and erase frown lines. And dermatologist Melissa Levin shares the scoop on the most effective topical ingredients to treat every kind of wrinkle, even those pesky ones between your brows and along your neck.
