    Girlfriend to Girlfriend: The Woman Behind the Cult of Vintner’s Daughter

    Girlfriend to Girlfriend: The Woman Behind the Cult of Vintner’s Daughter

    The biggest cult in beauty is, without a doubt, a little brown bottle full of 100 percent clean botanical extracts and oils from Vintner’s Daughter. We first heard about it from a makeup artist who couldn’t believe what it was doing to her clients’ skin, and on this week’s episode of goop’s Beauty Closet podcast, we hear from founder April Gargiulo. A hilarious, gorgeous, Northern Californian mother of two, she didn’t set out to create a worldwide obsession, but she does do things very, very differently...something we (and GP) appreciate every time we pat it on. (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

    Love How You Look, No Matter Who You Are: A Beauty Entrepreneur and LGBTQAI Activist on Identity

    Life is always changing, points out activist, author, founder, and mom Jodie Patterson—so you have to adapt. After multiple careers (in fashion, beauty, retail, and...the circus) five children (one of them transgender), a TED talk, and two books (The Bold World and Born Ready: A Boy Named Penelope), the incredibly stylish cochair of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation is happy to share how she does it on the newest episode of the Beauty Closet podcast. How to make yourself and your kids feel beautiful is one of her amazing, totally doable tips; how to see hair as love is another. And of course, we had to know how she gets her glowy skin (believe it or not, she’s fifty). (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

    A Top Dermatologist and Psychiatrist on Aging Skin, Breakouts—and the Most Natural Look

    No matter what your age, skin type, or skin problem, you’re going to want New York dermatologist and psychiatrist Amy Wechsler’s advice. Famous for her light touch—clients walk out of her office looking brighter, smoother, and refreshed but never “done”—soothing bedside manner, and truly life-changing results, Wechsler talks about how to get (and maintain) your best skin ever. From fat-freezing tech, the latest acne treatments, and skin-tightening lasers to something called Instagram face and how feminism fits into any discussion of aging and aesthetics, Wechsler’s smart, empathetic take on it all is about as fascinating as it gets. (And after we had one look at her and heard that she has a college-age daughter, believe us, we were listening!) (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

Favorite but wanting new episodes

This is the best! I work for a company that sells clean beauty products, many from brands started by people in this podcast. I tune in both for work and personal enjoyment and share with my coworkers. I love hearing from the people who started this clean beauty movement and truly rely on their opinions and tips. We need more please, especially right now when all we hear about it Covid!
