Our suggestion to fix this: podcasts — not just your usual commentary about social goings-on, but one that’s tailored towards your personal interests — specifically, beauty podcasts. Looking for some recommendations on where to start? Read on.
This beauty podcast is at the very top of everyone’s recommendations list.

Our latest favourite episode is one with the viral Dr. Pimple Popper, Dr. Sandra Lee, on her viral YouTube videos and her own personal skincare recommendations.
