There's no better time than now to utilize the power of storytelling. With most of us working from home — and for those who live alone — podcasts can be a saving grace. I know they have been for me on a daily basis as I work from my studio apartment. The below five beauty podcasts have kept me both informed on what's happening in the beauty world and laughing:
Comedian Esther Povitsky and writer Caroline Goldfarb chat about all things fun, like makeup, health and beauty...nothing is off limits, think: nipple skin tones, Tik Tok skincare and porky umami breakfasts. Favorite episode: Ghee Whiz (with Kiernan Shipka)
Ex-Glossier staffer Annie Kreighbaum and Nécessaire Co-founder Nick Axelrod host this weekly pod in which they investigate the biggest beauty stories, the people making headlines, and the products they're obsessed with. Favorite episode: Ketamine: The Good, The Bad, The Future of Treating Depression?
Hosted by Teen Vogue's Jessica Matlin and Marie Claire's Jennifer Goldstein, it's a go-to for breaking beauty trends, odd beauty crazes, and the need-to-know brands and products worth investing in. Plus, This Week's Beauty News is a weekly segment that's super informative and well researched. I love their secrets and inside access into the world, thanks to their day jobs as beauty editors. Favorite episode: DIY Gel Manicures, the CROWN Act and The Week’s Beauty News
In a nutshell: real scientists answer your burning beauty questions. It's a great resource to discover the beauty and cosmetic products you should use and those you should avoid. I also always take away new insight, like did you know Cruelty-free and No Animal Testing aren’t the same thing? Favorite episode: Is Vitners Daughter Serum Really Worth The Price?
Esteemed beauty editors Jill Dunn and Carlene Higgins spill the details (and secrets!) on new trends, brands and products, all while hosting incredible guests, like Glossier's Emily Weiss and Color Wow founder Gail Federici. Favorite episode: Clean Beauty in the Era of Misinformation with Cosmetic Chemist Jen Novakovich
