Are you ready to shut down some beauty myths? Because consultant dermatologist Dr. Anjali Mahto is here to SHUT 👏 THEM 👏 DOWN 👏 - do you really need eye cream? What about double -cleansing? And do oil based serums actually help with acne? Anjali distills down what we really need in our bathroom cabinets, and what's just junk. Plus we talk about the unrealistic beauty standards placed on women and how dermatologists need to step up and take responsibility when they suspect body dysmorphia. Plus why we need to celebrate the wisdom and experience of older women instead of trying to erase them from consciousness. So much great stuff in this episode, LEAN IN.
