    Easy Ayurvedic Tips for Your Skin, Hair, and Life

    Easy Ayurvedic Tips for Your Skin, Hair, and Life

    From the skin-replenishing magic of her beautiful organic oils to easy ways to shift your energy with food or movement, UMA founder Shrankhla Holecek manages to make practices based in Ayurveda—the ancient Indian system of plant-based medicine—both simple and approachable. Her offhanded mix of glamour and down-to-earth-iness couldn’t be more charming, even when she’s giving us tips on how to use navel oil (!) on the latest episode of the Beauty Closet podcast. “Simply put, Ayurveda is guidance on how best to live your life,” says Holecek. “It’s taking care of your body, mental well-being, and relationships; it’s making sure to release emotions from your body so that they don’t build up as toxicity; and [it’s] eating seasonally to best serve your body.” Holecek’s advice for boosting radiance, soothing breakouts, balancing mood, and giving hair more shine is incredible, and we also love her point that wrinkles aren’t necessarily something to be erased.

    The Clean Dentist Who’s Making Us Rethink Everything about Our Teeth

    The Clean Dentist Who’s Making Us Rethink Everything about Our Teeth

    There’s a reason most conventional toothpastes say, “Do not swallow,” says top Beverly Hills dentist Kourosh Maddahi, DDS, who blows beauty editors Jean Godfrey-June and Megan O’Neill’s minds this week on The Beauty Closet with some startling realities and expert tips for keeping your teeth healthy (and white). The mouth’s microbiome, he says, is our first line of defense, yet most mouthwashes and toothpastes are designed to kill all bacteria. Maddahi is the creator of Lumineaux—the first clean oral-care line (including the best whitening strips we’ve ever tried)—and he gives us the facts about what really makes teeth look older, how to fight bad breath (hint: not with mint), and a must-know trick for anyone who loves lemon water in the morning. There’s more: how common prescription meds can decimate the bacteria in our mouths, thus causing cavities, and why root canals can do a number on our health—all of it amazing and instantly habit-changing. (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

    Her Face Oil Is Epic; So Is Her Skin. We Had to Know More

    Her Face Oil Is Epic; So Is Her Skin. We Had to Know More

    Nyakio Grieco has hands down the glowiest skin we’ve ever seen, and on this week’s episode of the Beauty Closet podcast, the nyakio Beauty founder and CEO tells Jean Godfrey-June and Megan O’Neill about the clean ingredients from Africa that make all the difference. From the beauty secrets she got from her grandmother, a farmer in Kenya, to her experiences as one of the most successful Black clean beauty founders in the business, Grieco’s perspective is unique: This summer’s uprising over racial injustice had her reflecting on her early struggles to find funding and a foothold with retailers. “It’s a beautiful thing that so many people are finally seeing people who deserve to have been seen for far too long,” she says. Listen to hear how she’s helping change the narrative for fellow Black founders, her prescription for great skin, how YouTube tutorials can help you raise your kids, and why she feels the most beautiful in her forties. (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

    Stop Waiting for Your Perfect Weight

    Stop Waiting for Your Perfect Weight

    “The size 2 women are just as obsessed as the size 22 women,” says Instagram star, style blogger, and female beauty founder Katie Sturino. “It’s in our culture everywhere that women are just not the right size—no matter what size we are.” In this week’s episode of The Beauty Closet, Sturino talks about how we can go about rejecting that narrative and what can open up in its place. How own journey—from high-end fashion executive to powerful style influencer (the day she wore a G. Label sweaterdress was a big one here at goop) at The12ishStyle.com and founder and CEO of Megababe, one of our all-time favorite clean beauty companies (hello, Thigh Rescue and Bust Dust!)—is both thrilling and inspiring, and she’s also one of the funniest people you’ll ever meet. But it’s her super smart observations about women and weight that will keep you listening to the very end—when she turns the tables on Jean and Megan and asks them all her beauty questions! (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)

Please stop interrupting the guests!

This podcast could be five stars if the hosts would stop interrupting the guests. These guests have so much helpful and informative information to provide and they keep getting interrupted. It’s super annoying. Please stop!

Not everyone should be podcasts hosts

These women don’t sound natural at all. I turned it off after less than 5 minutes. I just can’t. There are plenty of podcasts out there regarding Beauty that are more enjoyable to listen to. My favorite is Fat Mascara (no affiliation) where it feels like you are just discussing make-up with friends.

Goop needs to clone Elise

Goop needs to clone Elise. That’s what an intelligent and informed podcast host sounds like. She’s brilliant. These two women always seem uninformed. Too much nonsensical babbling, not enough knowledge.
