In a time where there are so many toxins that can influence estrogen levels, I share a holistic medical guide to hormones and what to watch out for.
There are estrogen chemicals in every aspect of our lives that affect our kids, cause early menopause, infertility, acne, PCOS and much more.
There seems to be a lot of misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic, and today I’m sharing my current pandemic insights. With an upcoming election, and the politicalization of this virus, it is important to be clear on how viruses work and the best ways to get through things.
Focusing on your health is an essential thing to do during this pandemic, and I’m convinced that nutrition is an important part of becoming and staying healthy. On this episode, I talk about diet trends like veganism, cutting out dairy, eating keto and the diet that I believe is most effective for your health and your skin.
This is episode is the second part of a two-part series about the 10 biggest mistakes to avoid in your anti-aging routine. In the last episode, I talked about the anti-aging mistakes we make by using exfoliants, steroids, retinols, alpha hydroxy acids, and chemical peels.
If I were to rename this podcast episode, I would call it – don’t do it!!! I’ve researched (and even self-experimented) with different strategies to fight aging, and through that process I’ve realized what you absolutely should NOT do to your skin to try to reverse aging.
Last episode I dove into retinols and a few other ingredients to invest in (or avoid) when buying skincare. In this episode, I’m talking more specifically about the types of Vitamin C, antioxidants, and peptides to look for in your skincare.
