    The BFFs Who Created a Business around Beautiful Food

    The BFFs Who Created a Business around Beautiful Food

    They founded Sakara Life—the plant-based food delivery program that changed the way we eat—on $700 they raised by throwing a dinner party for friends. Ten years, several babies, and a whole lot of material and spiritual success later, best friends and co-CEOs Danielle Duboise and Whitney Tingle are as open and curious as ever, which helped make this episode one of our all-time favorites (it also helps, of course, that the two are seasoned podcast hosts). We got their take on everything—the difference between a cleanse and a diet, how to break away from conventional solutions to problems like acne, growing a business from practically nothing, why breastfeeding during meetings can change the world, and why it’s more important to focus on what you are eating rather than what you aren’t—and it’s just magical.

    Expert on (Beauty) Expert with Monica Padman

    Expert on (Beauty) Expert with Monica Padman

    We are full-on Armchairies here at goop, so the chance to interview Monica Padman, half of the Armchair Expert brain trust (GP interviewed the other half, Dax Shepard, here—do not miss it), had us pinching ourselves. Whether Padman, cocreator and cohost with Shepard of the smash-hit podcast (she’s also editor, producer, and erstwhile fact-checker), was interviewing Yuval Harari, Glennon Doyle, Ibram X. Kendi, or perhaps Bill Gates when we heard her mention an enthusiasm for beauty, we no longer remember. All we know is we pounced and somehow convinced her to come on our podcast—and it was amazing. Whether she’s talking about growing up Indian American in Georgia or how she holds own with her brilliant guests, Padman is smart, full of insights, and always hilarious. (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

    The Moment I Learned to (Really) Love My Hair

    The Moment I Learned to (Really) Love My Hair

    Actress, author, entrepreneur, single mom, and mental health advocate Taraji P. Henson credits much of her enormous success (she was nominated for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, won a Golden Globe for Empire and a SAG award for Hidden Figures, sang vocals for the Oscar-winning theme song ofHustle & Flow, and wrote a bestselling and wildly inspiring memoir, Around the Way Girl) to embracing her differences. For her, that’s meant being herself in auditions (as opposed to playing to stereotypes), standing up to teachers as she was raising her son, and one day on a magazine shoot, learning to love her natural hair texture. That experience eventually led to TPH by Taraji, an absolutely incredible line of hair care that’s now sold across the country at Target. Henson has lived more life in her fifty years than most people do in a hundred; her story is fascinating and inspiring (and we got her to tell us the secret behind her skin, which is the glowiest, softest, healthiest-looking we’ve ever seen). (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

    A Style Guru’s New Obsession: Fantastic Lashes

    A Style Guru’s New Obsession: Fantastic Lashes

    She changed how we dressed and put J.Crew on the map, and now Jenna Lyons has come out with chic, next-level false eyelashes that flatter any face. (Truly, whether you’ve never tried lashes before or you’re a pro, there is nothing like a pair of her LoveSeen lashes.)  The style icon’s newest chapter—after a career highlighted by running J.Crew (and Madewell, and J.Crew Factory, all at the same time) and starring as herself on Girls—involves the title role on Stylish with Jenna Lyons on HBO, hotel design, and so much more under her Lyons L.A.D. umbrella (she named her new company Lyons Life After Death) that it’s hard to keep up. Her story—growing up with a genetic disorder that left her without eyelashes, among other issues—is surprising, not to mention as inspiring as it gets. We knew she loved fashion, but as we discover on The Beauty Closet, she’s a full-on beauty maven, with a specialty in exfoliation.(For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

    A Dermatologist and Skin Cancer Surgeon on What Lasers Can Do and Why Race Plays into Her Work

    A Dermatologist and Skin Cancer Surgeon on What Lasers Can Do and Why Race Plays into Her Work

    What are the best techniques for smoothing crow’s-feet? Is the phrase “Black don’t crack” true? What really can be done with lasers? How do you freshen someone up without making them look “done”? What does it mean to specialize in skin of color? NYC-based Michelle Henry, MD, a Mount Sinai– and Harvard-trained dermatologist and skin cancer surgeon, has brilliant, super useful answers to questions on everything from how to feel and look our best as we age to whether there’s an “ideal” facial structure—and it’s all on the latest episode of The Beauty Closet. Henry has the kind of reassuring humor you’d expect from a lifelong girlfriend and a perspective on what it means to feel beautiful and confident in a wider sense—beyond in-office treatments and supercreams, race, age, and even her own aesthetic techniques. It’s just an incredible episode. (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

    The Brow Whisperer

    The Brow Whisperer

    You can shape gorgeous, natural-looking, defined brows at home, and on this week’s episode of The Beauty Closet, the legendary Jimena—pronounced he-méh-nah—Garcia tells us how. Garcia, who’s Chanel’s first-ever brow artist, is about not just creating naturally defined, face-sculpting arches but also how to see the beauty in your own face and develop your own sense of beauty and style. She gives Jean Godfrey-June and Megan O’Neill easy-to-follow tips on how to shape and maintain flattering brows at home, no matter how haywire, bushy, or sparse your canvas. (During the pandemic she’s been holding digital brow workshops and master classes, so she’s great at DIY brow advice.) She answers all our questions, from how to make brow plucking hurt less to the easiest way to create an arch. (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

Castor oil

The castor oil for inducing labor is not some esoteric or unfounded claim. When I was living in Germany for 5 years during which time I had 2 children, the university hospital in Hamburg (so again, a research institute, not some esoteric place) gave a castor oil drink to women past their due date. I was 7 days past my due date, given a castor oil “smoothie” then put in a room to relax and wait. Within the hour, I was in labor and had a baby!
