Breast Reduction Surgery | One Year On and why it changed my life.

It’s been a year since I had breast reduction surgery and when I decided to have this operation I thought it was going to be life-changing, but it wasn’t.It turns out that if I wanted to change my life, undo self-sabotaging behaviours and really address my issues with my own body image, it wasn’t something I could outsource - this needed to be an inside job. So, that’s what the last 12 months have been about confronting and addressing demons, being honest with myself and making changes for my long-term mental, emotional and physical health.I’m made this video/audio because I receive messages daily about my breast reduction surgery, but in recent months I’ve been also been receiving messages about my weight loss, in the main along the lines of ‘how have you done it?’ and it feels impossible to talk about one without mentioning the other.If you do have questions about breast reduction surgery or anything else discussed in this video please do feel free to comment or please know that my DMs are open.Trigger warning: I am aware that some of what I have mentioned in this video may be triggering for some viewers. It is never my intention to create content that will upset, offend or alienate, but this is the only way I knew how to articulate my own personal journey and I hope you don’t mind me using my platform to do so. Mentioned in the #IGTV:@hasteskitchen The 7 Day Basket.

Bonus Episode | Top 10 Beauty products of 2018

In this bonus episode I answer one of the questions I get the most on email, social media and in person and that's 'what's your favourite beauty product?' And, in order to make it fair, it's a Top 10 covering skincare, makeup and gadgets. All of this is in my humble opinion and, I hope it goes without saying, that this episode was not produced in conjunction with the brands involved. I have not been paid to mention these products, although Elizabeth Arden did sponsor the episode with Dr Dendy Engelman back in September. These are my independent thoughts and feelings having used the products, although as a beauty journalist I am sent some of the product featured without charge.First up, my go-to hydrating skincare: Clinique Moisture Surge Supercharged Hydrating ConcentrateI started using retinol just before my 40th birthday last year.

Habit 22 | The Ketogenic Diet... Again.

In habit #8 I attempted to try the ketogenic diet, but fell at the first hurdle and didn't even make it into ketosis. What went wrong? Looking back I think it was lots of overthinking, but very little preparation and planning so in my second run at the ketogenic diet I'm focusing on the process of getting into ketosis rather than racing to the bit when I'm actually in it.Please seek medical advice before undertaking any new diet or fitness reg  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Habit 20 | Hitting the RESET button

If you've ever felt frazzled, found yourself scrolling holiday destinations on instagram or just felt like you've taken too much, your first thought might be to spend a fortnight on a white, sandy beach, down tools for a week or just stay in bed for a few days. When none are an option, is there a way to reset and recharge? In this new habit I'm going to see if something as simple as being rigid about when you wake up and when you go to bed can lift the sense of overwhelm, create a feeling of being a bit more in control and help you navigate those times when you just feel like the only thing that'd help is a relaxing holiday. Let's see if there can be a rest in resetting...Links from the show:Lewis Howes and The School of Greatness podcast on How to Manage Anxiety, Burnout and Overwhelm.To join the closed Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.For the entire #26habits back catalogue visit The Pool.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Habit 19 | Guilty purchase, better you?

I hope I’m not alone in being the kind of person who buys things in the hope their purchase will be enough to make me fitter, brighter or more organised. I have a tendency to buy sports equipment for at-home gym sessions that then go on to gather dust in the corner, but I’ve also bought expensive notebooks, elaborate filing systems or apps that promise a more organise life that go un-used.For this habit I’m going to put my last batch of sports kit to good use by creating an 8-minute tabata. Eight minutes is nothing, when you really think about it, and with the kit right there, you know, at the end of the sofa, it should be easy to incorporate into my day.

Habit 18 | No Makeup

Here's another habit that was requested in the Facebook group for the show - not wearing makeup for a fortnight. I have to be honest, this feels weird, not just because I wear makeup every day, but because makeup and beauty are what I do for a living in my role as a beauty journalist. My instagram feed is full of the makeup I'm using, the products I think are worth spending your hard-earned money on and all the lovely new products that are about to launch. To take a step back feels like missing out a crucial part of my day and also like bypassing a vital part of my daily self-care.

Habit 17 | Quitting sugar

There's a slew of evidence out there to show that not only is sugar bad for us, but it's also addictive. The fact it tastes the delicious and serves as the flavour cornerstone of most of the food we eat makes it hard to avoid, even with the best of intentions, but when Ian Marber was on this podcast he said that if you want to stop eating sugar, it's really simple - you stop eating sugar.With that in mind, I'm going to look away from all the scary statistics out there there essentially show how sugar is rotting my mind, body and spirit from the inside-out and just concentrate on not putting it in my mouth. Added sugar can take a hike, these next two weeks are going to be all about steering clear of all refined sugars and carbohydrates.The Daily Recommended Allowance (RDA) for sugar in the UK is 30g, which is roughly equivalent to seven sugar cubes.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Habit 16 | Is a two week spending freeze doable?

This habit is inspired by comments in the Facebook Group for the show and it's all about how feasible it is to do a spending freeze. Unless it's essential - food, water, rent etc - then the money stays in the account or in the pocket.According to one report all these cashless transactions we're used to means we're spending way more than we actually intend to, sometimes up to three times more, and those are expenses that can really build up. So what I'm going to do for two weeks is keep my purse closed and see what I realise I do need to spend money on and what I absolutely don't. It also means I'll have to prepare lunches, coffees and the like because grabbing one when I'm out and about is completely off-limits. Yikes, I'm nervous...To join the closed Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.For the entire #26habits back catalogue visit The Pool.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Habit 10 | Will decluttering my wardrobe make me happier?

This #26habits, or a version of it, was something I didn’t feel brave, ready or inclined to do. I knew I wanted to get rid of everything in my wardrobe and start again, but the prospect of doing so was very easy to dismiss as ‘ridiculous’ and move away from quickly. In the last year I’ve had a series of spontaneous clear outs, but have never had the guts to tackle my closet - until now... I read Tessa Coates featureWhy Having Just 33 Items of Clothing Could Mean You Have More to WearonThe Pool and realised she’d given me the perfect stepping stone to my ultimate goal. The premise is to whittle down your wardrobe to just 33 items - the ones that don’t make the cut are kept out of site, donated or sold - and wear only these for three months. Even I didn’t realise why I was shying away from a wardrobe cleanse, until I followed the first step in the 333 Challenge and put every single item of clothing I own on my bed…Mentioned in the show:Project 333 by Courtney Carver. https://bemorewithless.com/project-333/Be More with Less https://www.amazon.co.uk/Simple-Ways-Be-More-Less-ebook/dp/B0056U9I52Robin James’ video Always Look Good | Finding Your Style in 2018 has some absolutely vital points for creating and maintaining a wardrobe that suits you. Marie Kondo: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying: A Simple, effective way to banish clutter forever. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Life-Changing-Magic-Tidying-effective-clutter/dp/0091955106Suggestions for clothing donations:UK https://www.salvationarmy.org.uk/clothing-bankUSA http://www.planetaid.org/get-involved/donate-clothesAustralia https://www.redcross.org.au/support-us/red-cross-shops/donate-clothing-and-goodsEurope https://www.refugeesupport.eu/help-us-by-donating-items/*Disclaimer: landfill is full of unwanted clothes so if you decide to do this, or a version of it, please donate, sell or repurpose your old clothes.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Habit 9 | How can I live a more environmentally friendly life?

Climate change is real. I'm not being flippant, but with some people questioning whether global warming is actually something we need to worry about it's time to look at some hard facts. Millions of tonnes of plastic end up in the ocean each year, plastic bags take upwards of 1000 years to degrade and knowing what can and can't be recycled isn't an easy as it maybe should be.In this ninth #26habits I'm looking at the small, sustainable changes I can make to the products and services I consume and the way I recycle that will stop me contributing to the problem. Just a small about of internet research and I found that things I thought could be recycled can't and vice versa. It's time to educate myself as much as it's time to make changes.Tune into the show to find out what steps I'll be taking over these next two weeks to break the habit of unwillingly contributing to climate change.To join the closed Facebook group please click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To email me directly please use thebeautypodcast@gmail.comTo find the #26habits back catalogue and further reading on sustainability, climate change and much more, visit The Pool.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

After the success of habit number 6 and intermittent fasting, I'm going to embark on another eating pattern that promises similar health benefits. While weight loss may be one side effect of the ketogenic diet, there's also a lot of evidence to suggest other physical and mental benefits such as improved clarity and increased physical endurance.I'm a card-carrying yo-yoer, I succeed at restricted calorie intake and intense exercise that eventually becomes unsustainable and am keen to find a way of eating that gives me long-term health benefits and helps me look the way I feel happy with without being an all-or-nothing approach.Here's the link to the ketone strips I'll be using during this #26habits >> Just Fitter Ketone Test Strips.If you want to join the conversation head over to the Facebook Group here >> The Emma Guns Show on Facebook.To view the #26habits back catalogue visit The Pool.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Habit 7 | Can I break my smart phone addiction?

Phones are wonderful, aren't they? What used to be about making calls is now much more about having the internet, and therefore the entire world, within arms reach. I love my phone, but possibly a little too much. In fact, I'm pretty sure I'm addicted and with research and statistics showing that this sort of addiction can affect your physical and mental health, it's time to put some limits in place so I don't fall foul of the luxury of having everything at my fingertips.It was Sali Hughes feature on The Pool - Smartphone Addiction made me anxious, restless and muddled - that left me with no doubt I had an issue with how much I was using my phone, whether that was to actually do something or just to while away the time.So, for my seventh #26habits I'm going to be putting limits on when I use my phone, will be changing a little-known setting to make it much less desirable, turning off a very specific function (clue: it's the one apps and sites always ask you turn on) and putting some physical distance between me and my device.If you want to email me simply drop me a line to thebeautypodcast@gmail.com, to follow me on social media I'm @emmaguns and to join the Facebook forum for the podcast simply click this link >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Habit 6 | What are the benefits of intermittent fasting?

You know the expression 'like a kid in a candy store'? Is that how many of us are eating these days? Over-stimulated, over-stretched and leaning on food not only for sustenance, but relief and comfort wherever and whenever we want...As a card-carrying emotional eater I've found that the only times in my life I've ever had any control over my weight is when I'm eating within a strict structure and that 'structure' usually means a rigid regime of counting points, macros, weighing my food, measuring every ingredient to the micro mg, cutting out entire food groups, blending my meals into some sort of 'shake' that could be better described as sludge and more - all of which is unsustainable in the long-term. I've been reading more and more about intermittent fasting (IF) and the benefits are seemingly endless and require little more effort than setting yourself an 'eating window' and sticking to it. Traditional eating habits include a breakfast, lunch and dinner with snacks inbetween and you could time these meals at 8am, 1pm and 8pm or thereabouts. With IF the eating window is 12pm to 8pm.Tune in to find out how I'm going to ease my way into IF from otherwise random eating habits and what the real benefits might be to making this slight change to my eating patterns.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Habit 4 | Is sobriety the way forward? UPDATE

 In this #minishow I update you on how my fourth #26habits challenge has been going. Can I break the habit of casual drinking? Should I break the habit of casual drinking? I've teamed up with The Pool (@thepooluk) for #26habits and their Junior AV Producer, Hannah Varrall, has been joining me on this particular journey. Tune in to out what challenges we've faced along the way, whether we've been honest with other, the benefits we've noticed from quitting and whether we'll be taking this habit beyond the two weeks.In this episode I also share some excellent resources everyone trying to cut down or cut out should take a look at and some brilliant feedback and observations I've had from listeners about quitting and cutting down.Useful resources:Girl and Tonic by Laurie McAllister.Hip SobrietyClub SodaThe Unexpected Joy of Being Sober by Catherine Gray.To get in touch with the show you can email me at thebeautypodcast@gmail.com or DM me on twitter and instagram where I'm @emmaguns.If you have any concerns about your relationship with alcohol visit Alcoholics Anonymous.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Habit 4 | Is sobriety the way forward?

#26habits is teaming up with The Pool (@thepooluk) and in this fourth habit I'm going to be exploring the benefits of being tee-total with Junior AV Producer Hannah Varrall (@hannahvarr).Neither of us would say we have a problem with alcohol, we both fall into the camp of being pretty indifferent to it until it's in front of us in social situations, but is it doing us more harm that we realise?Is casual drinking, when alcohol is a known depressant, a problem in a time when more and more people are citing struggles with stress and anxiety?We're almost conditioned to believe that a drink will 'take the edge' off a hard day, but what lies beyond that moment? We're going to find out...Hannah and I are going to be each other's buddy while we navigate this new world of saying 'no' to a drink at the bar or declaring 'not for me' when we're out with friends, when there's no excuse other than, 'I've just decided drinking isn't for me.' During these two weeks I'm going to speak to people who have quit drinking for their physical health, to increase their productivity or because they felt it posed a threat to their mental health and ask them how abstaining from alcohol changed their lives. And I want to hear from you. Is this something you've done? Have you quit alcohol and seen a massive benefit? Or do you think a drink every now and again is perfectly fine?

Breaking Beauty: From print to audio and the #podfam

Bonus Episode:  Joining me on a special mid-week episode of the show it's Carlene Higgins and Jill Dunn from the fabulous podcast Breaking Beauty.  Like me, Carlene and Jill have a background in print journalism, but felt that the podcast was where it was at - and, of course, I agree! As they say in the tagline for their show, 'behind every bestselling beauty product, there's a damn good story,' and each week they put their journalistic hats on and take you behind a brand, trend or story from the beauty industry.  They kindly had me on their show and I was only too happy to reciprocate.  So here we are, on the phone via the internet so please bear with some of the audio issues, talking about knowing your worth (when others don't!), why it's important to diversify in a digital age and much much more...      See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Lindsey Kelk: Podcasting, Writing and Sex and the City fantasies.

listen on itunes I Heart Forever on Kindle, £3.99. Lindsey Kelk (@lindseykelk) joins me on this episode of the podcast to talk about her I Heart... series, her podcast Full Coverage and her 'creative process'. We holed ourselves away in the Bobbi Brown Pro store in Soho to chat about how this Doncaster born-and-bred girl found herself living in LA, how she got her first book published and how that first book has turned into a 13, and counting, series.  We chat about finding your best girlfriends, pushing outside your comfort zone, how her 'what might have been' motivated her to move to New York and why it shouldn't be weird to talk about your creative process. There's a lot of talk about awkward teenage years and always knowing there was something bigger out there in the world and finding yourself and your tribe.  Lindsey and I met on twitter (@lindseykelk) where you can often find us wanging on about wrestling, beauty products and other important issues.  To view Mark Kermode reviewing Entourage, which I strongly recommend you do, click this link >> ENTOU-RAGE. Off Camera with Sam Jones on YouTube. Lindsey mentioned her colourist, Naomi Knights, and you can find her here >> NAOMI KNIGHTS. If you enjoyed this conversation please do head over to iTunes and leave me a 5-star rating and review. also in this episode Dr Dennis Gross Spectralite is coming to the UK soon. The superhero style mask emits amber, red, deep red and infrared wavelengths that gently stimulate collagen production, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just a few minutes every day for several weeks.  I've developed a mild, scrap that, absolutely ridiculous obsession with Missoma jewellery. I saw some viewers asking Sam Chapman where her necklaces were from on an instagram live and she mentioned the brand so I found myself on their site having a mini-conniption about their earrings. If you're a regular listener you'll know I had three new piercings a few months ago and have been looking for hoops and studs that don't break the bank. Reader, I think I've found them. I'm crushing quite hard on the turquoise drop hoops and am incredibly keen to build up a wardrobe of the shield necklaces, oh, and the fang necklace. See, it's a problem.

Emma Blackery: Feel Good 101, Millennials and the Future

Listen on itunes listen on acast Emma Blackery @emmablackery is an award-winning singer-songwriter and author whose YouTube Channel, Emma Blackery, has nearly 1.5 million subscribers. In this episode we talk about her new book Feel Good 101 (available on Amazon and from Waterstones) and how she wrote it as the handbook for life that she wished she'd had in her teens.  We cover the tricky topics of anxiety and depression and how to make sense of them, what millennials are really like, why they get a hard time and the importance of having a focus and goals in life.  also in this episode... lime wood hotel & Spa My 'digital detox' in the New Forest, which actually involved more social lurking than actually switching off. I went to Lime Wood Hotel & Spa for a night to try to give myself a break from all things work, social media and, you know, routine. I picked the perfect place because Lime Wood really is a place where you can completely switch off and unwind - they've totally nailed that relaxed, no pressure atmosphere where there's never tension or stress in the air. The afternoon I arrived I went for a 'ramble' on one of their many routes in the woods - you just pick up a map from reception and off you go - and it was incredibly restorative, even the bit where I got a bit lost and panicked.  I also allowed myself a wee spot of indulgence and a Nourish by Bamford spa treatment, which was possibly the best treatment I've ever had in my life. Three hours of massage, a facial and reflexology; coupled with my ramble the day before I felt refreshed and restored for the first time in a long while. Yes, Lime Wood is a beautiful location, but the moral of this story is that sometimes finding a pocket of time and allowing yourself to switch off, and actually acknowledging you deserve it, can be as restorative as a holiday.  Gym kit has come a long way in the last decade and now terms like 'sweat wicking' and 'sculpting' are part of the fitness fashion lingo and it's no longer appropriate to wear old t-shirts or plain old lycra to your spin class. That said, my gym kit, however sophisticated or unsophisticated it is, has always lived in gym bags, been shoved into drawers or hung on the back of doors and the last time I moved I wanted to create a space so I could hang my gym gear - especially since I wear it so much on my, erm, freelancing from home days. So imagine my delight when I opened my wardrobe this week and I had the full complement of leggings; yoga, sculpting and running at my fingertips. I have Sweaty Betty to thank and I've been the biggest fan of their leggings for years now. The three I'm currently using are: The Power Legging - designed to sculpt your bum, The Contour Workout Legging - suitable for any workout, but I use them for my yoga sessions...  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Sarah Creal: Creation, Innovation and Communication

listen on iTunes Listen on acast Sarah Creal is the Lead, Global Partnership Initiatives for Estee Lauder companies and was in London for the launch of the second Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder collection, which she helped create and I stole her for an hour to record this episode of the show. In this episode Sarah tells me how to she went from the Clinique counter at Bergdorf Goodman to one of the most important roles in the world of beauty. Chances are there's a product in your makeup stores that Sarah has been a part of creating and in this episode she tells me how an idea becomes a reality, the challenges you face along the way and why being positive is vital. Scroll down for my review of my favourite VBxEL products... Also in this episode: I'm trialling food delivery services for a future podcast and on a week when I was pulled from pillar to post with work commitments it was a total blessing. Pure Package deliver food daily and I chose the Weight Loss package that meant I had balanced, nutritious food at my fingertips. I'm a swine for making poor choices about food when I'm busy or stressed and as well as the physical gains the mental and emotional benefits of not having to stress about what I was going to eat or feeling guilty about having eaten beans on toast again was an additional benefit. More to come on this on an upcoming episode of the show... I'm no expert when it comes to fragrance and much like wine I fall into a 'like it'/'don't like it' camp. Gabrielle, the first fragrance from Chanel in 15 years, was one I 'sniffed' for the first time on instagram live with the rather inelegant 'well, it's not unpleasant', but it's one of those scents that has really grown on me. Yes, it has what I like to call a bombastic impact that takes me to 80s power suits, chunky gold jewellery and the Oil Baron's Ball, but there's something a lot fresher and more delicate when it dries-down that, crucially, doesn't evaporate away. Whether you want a new fragrance or just for simple curiosity I'd pop to a Chanel counter, get them to spritz a blotter for you, leave it for a couple of hours then see how you feel about it... My favourite victoria beckham x estee lauder products: Right off the bat I have to mention the Eye Ink Mascara, £36, because it has a really long wand that actually gives you more dexterity to coat and fan-out lashes, plus the small brush actually allows you to tightline. It's become my go-to mascara. The Morning Aura Illuminating Creme, £72, is almost ridiculous is how it just adds a sheen of health to my complexion without looking shiny, shimmery or fake. Aura Gloss, £30, is one of those versatile little pots that can be used to add highlight - again, they've managed to create highlights that look real not fake - but my favourite way is to use this is to dab it on the centre of my eyelids to add a 3D effect to my eye makeup.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Sohère Roked: Women's Health, Hormones and Wellness.

One of the shows that has been most requested by listeners is all things hormones so I asked Sohère Roked, a GP and Bio-identical and Integrative Medical Specialist, if she would talk to me and shed a little light on what is a pretty complicated subject. Sohère talks about the frustrating experiences she had with female patients who would come in saying they didn't 'feel right' but whose blood tests would return with normal results leaving them at a total dead end. Sohère realised there was a very strong link between hormones and our general well-being and how even a small imbalance can contribute to feeling under par.  In this conversation we talk about how you should be feeling during your menstrual cycle, in terms of what's normal or to be expected, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), why a 360 approach to wellness is vital and why knowing yourself and how you feel is something we should all be checking in with.  We also tackle the sticky topic of the cost involved with deep-diving into your hormones, the things you can do to identify if there's something amiss and the steps you can take to make yourself feel better.  Sohère talks about her book The Tiredness Cure: How to beat fatigue and feel great for good and quizzes, cues and information within that can help you work towards feelings better.

Claire Coleman: Clinical Trials, Transparency and Truth.

Claire Coleman (@featuresjourno/@featuresjourno) is a writer who, if you listen to the show regularly, will have heard referenced as a 'forensic beauty journalist' who loves nothing more than getting her teeth stuck into a clinical trial.  As people who write about beauty we sit in the space between brands and the consumer offering an objective point of view about what a brand is up to in order to better help you make good decisions about how to spend your money. Claire's approach is to listen to what the brands have to say, but also by deep-dive into the independent data, clinical trials and by doing her own research into ingredients, innovations and developments. She does not care for fluff and nonsense and in this episode I ask her about her approach to writing about products, what she looks for from brands, what products, ingredients and innovations she thinks are worth paying attention to and what you should flat-out not get duped by. Take her on her word, she's very happy for you to tweet her @featuresjourno and you can read more of her work and find out more about Claire by visiting her website here >> https://www.clairecoleman.com/  As a result of our conversation Claire has created a list of products she would be happy to recommend - they can be found on her website here >> https://www.clairecoleman.com/blog-1 Claire mentioned these links/studies in the show and the links can be found below: Sam Farmer on parabens is here (8th question down) :http://www.samfarmer.co/education-click-question-read-my-response The study about lavender oil and breast tissue is here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17267908  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Paula is a published author (here's her author page on Amazon.co.uk), was dubbed 'The Cosmetics Cop' by Oprah Winfrey and is a proud entrepreneur of 40 years - as you can imagine our conversation takes several twists and turns... From her days as a makeup artist, to suffering with acne and eczema and how that informed her feelings about topical skincare, to writing books and then starting her brand - it's all in here. We also talk about hormones and their effect on skin as well as health.  In this episode of the show Paula talks about her Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant*, £25, a lightweight exfoliating fluid that helps breakdown dead skin cells for skin that looks more radiant and feels smoother.

Dr Murad: Eyes Up, Being Unique and Kindness.

Subscribe Dr Howard Murad is the man behind the skincare brand Murad known for its high performance, no-nonsense, problem-solving skincare. During a visit to London the LA-based dermatologist and  I met to speak about the new and unexpected factors affecting the way in which we age. He has been dubbed 'The Father of Internal Skincare' and his knowledge is vast, but in this conversation with talk about why it's so crucially important to take a 360 approach not just to ageing, but to our lifestyles too. Dr Murad talked to me about his Eyes Up Campaign and how it's important we find a balance between how much we're online for the sake of our health as well as how we all fall into the habit of compromising and editing ourselves in a way that can impact our happiness - and our health. Dr Murad has been treating patients for over 50 years so he knows what people want, he knows what works and his advice is like pure gold bullion. You'll also be able to hear the fab Zoe Shaw, who you'll know if you watch Murad's presentations on QVC, who joined us for the chat too. MY top 3 picks for murad problem-solving skincare Murad Eye Lift Firming Treatment, £49.50.* My eyes can get really puffy when I'm stressed and/or tired - I blame staring at computers and wearing contact lenses - and when this eye treatment launched last year I was seriously impressed by the results. It's very simple to use too - just a couple of pumps on the eye patches, apply under the eyes and wait... It instantly calmed that feeling of 'puff' around my eyes and my eyes looked fresher immediately after use. I try to use this once a week and as well as the soothing effect on my eyes, it also gives me a reason to sit down for 15 minutes. Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield SPF30, £56.* I have no problem with a product that does as much as this one... I sometimes feel as though I'm layering too much on my skin so the fact this one cream does the job of five other products is a win/win for me. On application there's an instant 'blurring' or skin that seamlessly covers imperfections, such as pores, but it also hydrates, primes and has a broad spectrum SPF so your skin is protected throughout the day. Add to the mix a savvy blend of anti-ageing ingredients that stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and well, I'm sold.  Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, £35. I've only recently come around to the brilliance of acids and their ability to slough and refine skin without any scrubbing or physical 'bits' scratching at you thanks to Nadine Baggott, but this cleanser is testament to how efficient they are in skincare. I find it really efficient and my skin feels incredibly clean, soft and smooth to the touch after I've used it, which I think can't be anything but a brilliant surface on which to apply my skincare. I use it as my second cleanse at night before using my powerful anti-ageing skincare products. Murad Eye Lift Firming Treatment, £49.50. Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield, £56.

Really Ree: Domination, Competition and being Lucky

Ree Lodge (@reallyree) and her website www.reallyree.com are the 'breaking news' of beauty. If it's launching, it's on her site, which is about to undergo a massive redesign, and being first, thorough and correct is of paramount importance to Ree. In this episode Ree talks to me about the early days of Really Ree, of joining twitter on a whim, writing blog posts, but also what life had looked like before she dominated the beauty news arena. She talks to me about her career in recruitment, where you could argue her competitive nature was born, and why she went from a high-paid job into a passion role and how she's gone on to monetise the latter. It's a really robust conversation where we cover topics including self-preservation, the idea of luck, guilt, motivation and she shares a brilliant piece of advice for anyone going after what they want in life: “You haven’t failed unless you give up.” — Ree Also in this episode... It was a busy week in beauty and among other things I went to the launch party for Real Techniques new collection Powder Bleu launching July 2017 - a new variety of brushes designed to be used with powder. The six-piece collection includes a Soft Complexion Brush, £22, a Soft Powder Brush, £22, Soft Finishing Brush, £22, Soft Shader Brush, £15, Soft Kabuki Brush, £25 and Plush Powder Puff, £12. The event was held in the Blue Room at The Curtain Hotel in Shoreditch and hosted by Sam Chapman and Nic Haste Chapman and included readings from the Psychic Sisters and entertainment from Britain's Got Talent Finalists DNA. The food from Red Rooster was next-level and reminded me of Hart of Dixie, which is never a bad thing.  There are certain events that are just joyful and hanging out with Sam and Nic is always such a pleasure (listen to their podcast here) but also some of my favourite beauty colleagues; Sali Hughes, Nadine Baggott, Really Ree, Madeleine Spencer, Claire Coleman, Jo Glanville-Blackburn and many more...

Chloe Brotheridge: Anxiety, Meditation and Being kind to yourself.

Anxiety affects nearly a quarter of the population and as it's a topic that has come up more than once during podcasts with my guests I felt it was time to dig a little deeper into the topic. While it's completely normal to experience anxiety you may not be aware that you have it. Instead you may feel as though you're just highly stressed, a bit hormonal or just going through a rough patch. I've spoken on this podcast before about anxiety with guests including Luke Hersheson and Pixiwoo's Sam and Nic, as well as my own struggles, and in realising this was a much bigger issue was keen to speak to an expert on the subject. Chloe Brotheridge has written the book The Anxiety Solution, which is a really important read whether you suffer with anxiety yourself, or know someone who does. As well as detailing her own experiences with anxiety and panic attacks the book also offers realistic solutions to bringing down your anxiety levels as well as the comfort of reassuring you that you're not alone.  In this podcast we talk about Chloe's book, her own experiences with anxiety, how to spot the warning signs that you're not just stressed, how to help someone you know through anxiety and the benefits of meditation and yoga.  Chloe's website www.calmer-you.com provides another resource with links to helpful sites as well as a downloadable meditation and details of her upcoming events, as well as how to get in touch with her.  I hope you find this podcast helpful. Leave comments on the page here, over on twitter @emmaguns or you can email me at thebeautypodcast@gmail.com In this week's introduction: My review of the Kerastase Aura Botanica range and Redken's No Blow Dry NBD for Fine Hair - the results have been seriously impressive.

Carmen Carrera: Stereotypes, Survival and Showgirls.

Carmen Carrera (@carmen_carrera/@carmen_carrera) joins me on this episode of the show and we cover a lot of ground. From her blossoming acting career, her Showgirl show, her tireless work as an activist within the LGBTQ community as well as how she navigated her own transition.  I first came to know of Carmen when she appeared in series three of RuPaul's Drag Race, but a lot has changed since then. Immediately after the show finished filming Carmen began to transition and her birth certificate now reads 'female', a change she admits made her feel 'powerful' and 'validated'.  In this episode of the show we talk about her early years in high school, how she navigated the school halls while knowing that she wasn't being her true self, how her friends and mother played a crucial role in her accepting and believing in herself. We talk about her acting career and starring alongside Meryl Streep, being friends with J.Lo and life after Drag Race.  Carmen also talks to me about her tireless work as an activist and the documentary Outpost and highlighting the fact that rates of violence against the LGBTQ community in Sao Paolo are among the highest in the world. She also tells me about supporting Gavin Grimm, the transgender teen who was prevented from using the boys' toilets in his school, and why a curriculum of LGBTQ history in schools is a positive step to creating safety and protection for the community. She also tells me about motherhood, breaking down stereotypes and how yoga and meditation have played a crucial role in her journey.

In our conversation we talk about her early journalistic career, being a mum and what it was that prompted her to start Mother Pukka and why the campaign for flexible working for parents is so important to her.  I dare you not to be inspired by Anna, not least because she doesn't sugar-coat her messaging, but because she's being true to herself - and in this episode of the show she talks about the highs and lows of doing just that.

Alessandra Steinherr: Reality, Affirmations and Adaptability.

Alessandra Steinherr (@alexsteinherr on Twitter/@alexsteinherr on Instagram) is Beauty Director of Glamour Magazine and a social media sensation who joins me on the podcast to talk about her impressive career as a beauty journalist, her thoughts on weight and body issues, the power of positive affirmations and the importance of staying curious. We also kick off with chatter about gossip, what it's really like working in such an image-obsessed industry and where Alex's dreams of becoming a beauty director really began. I went to the Glamour Festival recently to watch Alex's Facebook Live with Estée Lalonde and one question that cropped up again and again was how to start in the industry - Alex explains all in this show... Alex is no stranger to long-haul travel thanks to shoots and interviews with supermodels and Oscar-winning actresses and she talks about how she manages such a jet-set lifestyle. To know Alex, and to listen to her in this episode, it's clear she has a lot of energy and we talk about how she channels it to be the best version of herself, how she unwinds and the only time she ever really switches off and does nothing... For anyone who battles with their weight Alex is right there with you. We discuss why a weight problem isn't a food problem, but an emotional one.    If following Alex on social media isn't enough for you then definitely head over to her website alessandrasteinherr.com where you'll find her beauty reviews, an archive of her beauty shoots and much more besides.

Caroline Hirons: Rock, Reputation and Being Heard

Rock chicks of the world unite! Caroline and I met at a Mötley Crüe concert, which is why this show starts, not with a deep-dive into all things skincare, but a reverie of our favourite rock bands - and rock gods. We talk about the concerts we were both at in the 1980s, the rock stars that make us go weak at the knees and Caroline's incredible backstage experiences... Music aside, Caroline is famous in the beauty world for her no-nonsense approach to skincare - an objective approach earned from over thirty years in the industry. Her reviews have the ability to sell-out product - dubbed 'The Caroline Hirons Effect' - and leave the shelves of major beauty retailers completely bare. She has worked on the shop floor, has consulted for years with brands and has probably had something to do with the creation of many of the products living in your bathroom cabinet right now.  Because, who doesn't love an instagram story..? Caroline is someone I've admired for a while, not least because she seems true to and at ease with herself. When she speaks people listen and I wanted to unpick when she realised her voice was one that was being heard by a huge audience, as well as by the upper echelons of the industry. As she says in the show, having spent years in corporate business, realising that her true voice was one that was influential felt great. It's a responsibility she doesn't take lightly and Caroline is a bit like your best friend and your mum - and perhaps that's why she's garnered such a massive global audience who really trust her. Her website www.carolinehirons.com is a portal reviews, advice and must-read 'cheat sheets' and you can follow her on instagram @carolinehirons and twitter @carolinehirons. Pic credit: Dan Kennedy Caroline launched her first ever skincare product this year - Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse, £24, and I ask her whether we can expect more products and innovations with her name on it... We also chat about acne and her tips for how to handle it and why it's such an emotional issue. As a qualified facialist Caroline talks about intuition and about the times either putting her hands on someone's skin or seeing something she thought was suspicious has possibly saved lives.    Caroline also started the non-profit initiative Give & Makeup that aims to get everyday essentials into the hands of the women and children who need them. Whilst composing a blog post on beauty essentials Caroline started thinking about the people who have nothing, found this page on the Refuge website, scrapped the blog post and created the initiative. If you want to donate cosmetics, toiletries, clothes and childrens' clothes follow this link >> how to donate.  Finally, if you want Caroline to return for a second instalment of the show then email me at thebeautypodcast@gmail.com or tweet me @emmaguns using #EGpodcast.

Luke Hersheson: Passion, Creativity and Drive.

Joining me in this episode of the show is Luke Hersheson (@lukehersheson) the Creative Director at Hersheson's (@hershesons) salons and a member of The House of Experts at John Frieda. Let me just say this at the outset - Luke was a brilliant guest, not least because he's been tuning into the podcast and loves the show! In our conversation we talk about the fact Luke knew he wanted to follow his father's footsteps into hairdressing from a very young age, what it's like to have a busy, creative mind, his desire to want to make salons relevant again, travelling the world with supermodels and his pursuit of excellence. We each talk about our experiences with anxiety and the steps we've taken to overcome what feel, at times, crippling.   Luke tells me the story of how he was signed and started working on global advertising campaigns. His first trip, in 2001, was with supermodel Gisele for Missoni and he explains what it's really like to have to step up to the plate and how creativity comes together on a shoot. As well as Gisele Luke has styled Victoria Beckham, Sali Hughes, Emma Watson and Sienna Miller - among many others. Also in this episode of the show we talk about the technical revolution, how perhaps social media didn't seem like something we had to get involved with when platforms such as Facebook and Twitter started cropping up, but also how to find balance in a world of technical/social overload. We talk about meditation, the apps to use and the techniques that can help you find balance as well as Luke's plans for the future and how he goes about setting goals. Finally Luke and I chat about drive, about how passion spurs you on to work even harder, but also how to find a balance and why it's important to find and appreciate moments of calm between the frenetic schedules of fashion week and the like. We also kick the show off with an embarrassing tale from fashion week a few years ago when I stumbled into Luke at a party wearing one of the Hersheson Clip In Fringes. Every home should have one! There's no pesky waiting around for your hair to grow out after you've had a fringe cut in and it's so easy to clip-in and clip-out. I wish I could tell you I was a good model for it...

In her second visit to The Emma G Podcast Nadine (@nadinebaggott/@nadinebaggott) returns to delve into, and debunk, skincare myths. You may know her as the Health & Beauty Editor of Hello! or as The Beauty Know It All over on YouTube, but one thing is for sure, she is an endless  resource of skincare knowledge and beauty know-how. After her first visit, where we discussed Generation Y, #antisocialmedia and how she came to carve out one of the beauty industry's most impressive careers, listeners wanted more - and you've got it! Here she talks cosmetic procedures, what you really need from your skincare and her healthy sense of skepticism. But it's a 90 minute show so we obviously indulged in a little Real Housewives chatter... Nadine is all about honesty - #nofilter #nofacetune and #ownyourshit In this episode Nadine explains why she's so passionate about skincare. Why every woman should be googling the ingredients on their product labels - knowledge is power - and whether you really need to spend money on your anti-ageing creams. We also chat about her rules for sunbathing, whether or not essential oils should play a role in your beauty buying and why she loves a skincare expert in a white coat. Ever thought about going under the knife, getting injectables or having a laser treatment? Nadine gives a no-holds-barred account of what the pain is really like and whether the results are worth it. And if you've ever felt guilty about falling asleep in your makeup, listen to Nadine - you won't anymore... Check out Nadine's product know-how and ingredient knowledge... Other topics covered in the show include the author Jo Hoare and her brilliant books, which can be found here on Amazon,  previous podcast guests Caroline Barnes and her Speed Beauty channel over on Facebook and Sam Chapman of Pixiwoo.

Dr Dennis Gross: Pioneering skincare, Symmetry and Ageing.

Dr Dennis Gross is one of the world's leading authorities in skincare. He is a dermatologist, scientist and dermatologic surgeon and I was thrilled to get the chance to have him on the show to talk about his own range of skincare - Dr Dennis Gross - and pick his brain about skincare generally, the types of ingredients we should be looking for in our products as well as when and how to look after our skin as we get older. What's wonderful about Dr Dennis Gross is his ability to make what can be quite complicated extremely simple and when it comes to skincare his approach is, 'If something doesn't make you look good then it's not working.' Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel, £73.50 at Selfridges I met with Dr Gross during his visit to London to launch his products into Selfridges, which includes his iconic Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel - a two-step daily regimen that smoothes and firms skin gently. The entire collection can be viewed here - Selfridges. Given his background in skin cancer I asked him to share his ABCDs of what to look out for, how to check yourself and why 'pink is the new red'. His website www.dennisgrossmd.com is a brilliant resource if you want some further reading on the subject.  Finally, I couldn't resist quizzing Dr Gross about what else we can expect from him and from his range. He tells me about what's to come including new technology, devices, unique ingredients and light sources. Plus I also rave at him about the incredible Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pad for Face, which I discovered via Alessandra Steinherr and which I urge everyone to try - it's one of my hero products. Dr Gross told me during our chat, 'I want people to try products that make them feel happy and look good' and his Glow Pads certainly deliver on that.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

The Elimination Show: Dairy, Sugar & Gluten.

This episode of the show follows a slightly different format from the usual long-form interviews. I'm talking all things elimination and by that I mean the unavoidable topic of cutting out particular food types. I'm not, for one second, suggesting that anybody cuts out either dairy, gluten or sugar without good reason - consulting a GP or nutritional therapist, for example, should be the first move. However, if it is a decision you have come to then this show features interviews with three real women who, for reasons of their health and/or wellbeing, have cut out either gluten, dairy or sugar.  The purpose of this podcast is to simplify what can be a bamboozling topic, not to promote the idea of making radical changes to one's diet. Judy Johnson from e-zine Get the Gloss. Before we get into the interviews I asked Judy Johnson (@jjjourno/@judy_jay) from Get the Gloss onto the show to talk about the rising 'noise' around clean eating movements, elimination and extreme diet regimes. If you're interested to hear her views on the recent Horizon documentary you can read them here >> Is Clean Eating Just the Scapegoat for our own Confused Relationship with Food? Layla talks changing taste buds... Talking about her reasons for and experience with cutting out dairy is Layla Randle-Conde (@laylabombayla) from Earth Zest Cosmetics. The unexpected side-effect of no longer consuming dairy is one I certainly hadn't expected... Scroll to 13:00 for my interview with Layla. More addictive than a Class A drug? Joining me to talk all things sugar is Emma Stavrinides (@moreliemoo/@emmastavrinides) whose experience of cutting out the sweet stuff when her health was threatened was featured in a Women's Health article here >> Real Life: I lost 4 stone in 9 months. Her perspective on looking at it as a lifestyle change, not a diet, is a useful one. Scroll to 27:30 for my chat with Emma. Tired of your tummy troubles..? Finally Lauren Naylor (@laurenpnaylor/www.laurenpatricia.com) opens up about her years of embarrassing IBS attacks and how cutting gluten from her diet made all the difference. If you've suffered with IBS - and Lauren doesn't hold back in her description of some of hers - then you may be interested in how cutting out gluten has helped her manage them. Scroll to 53:00 to hear Lauren's story. If you did catch the Horizon Documentary: Clean Eating the Dirty Truth you might like to read this piece by Zoe Harcombe (@zoeharcombe) on the Clean Eating Movement. As I've mentioned, this podcast does not support eliminating anything from your diet without first finding out if it's necessary. With the noise, confusion and sometimes conflicting information around the best diets, how to eat and what to avoid out there, what I'm supporting is the idea of being informed. ...  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Joanna McGarry: Adding threads, back-to-school and reality TV

Joanna McGarry (joanna_mcgarry/joanna_mcgarry) joins me to talk about 'adding threads' to her considerable talents. A beauty journalist for over a decade Jo recently made the decision to embark on a full-time degree in Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.  The idea of a 'mid life leap' - making a dramatic shift from a career to a calling - has been around for some time, but in Jo's case she is broadening her knowledge, rather than choosing one over the other. I couldn't wait to sit down with Jo to find out why Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture called to her and how she was going about continuing to contribute to one of the country's most popular magazines as their Beauty Director-at-Large. In my time with Jo we talk in detail about how she came to make the decision, what it's really like to go back to school in your thirties and why timing was an important factor. Somehow, via talk of meditation, we also bond over a love for reality TV, where we sourced our style inspiration as teens without the likes of instagram and twitter and how mindfulness is playing a role in both our lives. links to the podcasts, books, features and documentaries mentioned in the show...

Marisa Peer: Hardwiring, Change and Being Enough.

Marisa Peer (@marisapeer/@marisapeertherapy) is a motivational speaker, celebrity therapist, behavioural expert and pioneering hypnotherapist trainer who invited me to her London home to record this episode of the show. She is listed in the Tatler Guide of Britain's Best Doctors, was named Best British Therapist by Men's Health and counts celebrities, Olympians, CEOs and Royalty among her clients.  In researching Marisa I spent hours on YouTube watching her talks and the main take-away, for me, was that how you are today isn't how you have to be tomorrow. If you catch yourself saying things such as, 'I always do ____' and feel helpless to not do ____ again, then Marisa's methodology is well worth exploring.  We all have patterns, but in this conversation Marisa explains the simplicity with which you can free yourself, especially if you feel a certain behavioural pattern - such as emotional eating - is holding you back or not allowing you to live the life you want to. At the core of her messaging is this idea of being 'enough'. Indeed she has 'I AM ENOUGH' written in lipstick on all the mirrors in her home and has given many talks (I've listed some you can find on YouTube below) where she outlines how not feeling enough can be at the core of the issues we all face.  I feel very privileged to have been able to spend time one-on-one with Marisa and meeting her had a very positive effect on me, as I hope this podcast does on you.  Marisa now teachers The Marisa Peer Method, where you can learn to do what she does. If you want to find out more you can email support@marisapeer.com quoting 'The Emma G Show'. Marisa's talks can be found on YouTube, here are some stand-outs: The Biggest Disease Affecting Humanity - A-FEST 3 Ways To Be Unf*ckablewith - Mindvalley Academy Marisa's YOUTUBE channel.

Eve Kalinik: Tummy troubles, Gut Health & Disconnecting

Eve Kalinik (@evekalinik/@evekalinik) is a nutritional therapist and innovative food thinker. In previous podcasts I've talked to guests about the gut being the 'second brain', but with Eve there's an argument for saying it's the first brain. Eve's approach isn't about fads or unsustainable plans - in fact she gives them all short shrift, as you'll hear - but rather a way of finding a balanced approach to what you eat to support health, wellbeing and positive changes in the body.  Did you know your stomach acid should be like battery acid? In this conversation Eve shares some facts we all need to know about our bodies, debunks myths, talks about the emotional connection we have with our food, and why some of our 'bad habits' might not be 'bad habits' at all, and actually the result of cravings caused by subtle, an easily fixable, imbalances in the gut. If you've ever wondered what probiotics and prebiotics are, and what they can do for your gut health, Eve breaks in down in one very nifty action movie analogy.  I recorded this podcast and wondered why I'd never seen a nutritional therapist before, if you feel the same you can get in touch with Eve via her website: EVE KALINIK.

Jo Tutchener-Sharp: Intuition, Taking Risks and Global Domination

Jo Tutchener-Sharp (@jotutcheners/@jotutchenersharp) is the Founder of children's clothing range Scamp & Dude (@scampanddude/@scampanddude) which launched in the UK in November 2016. The idea for the collection, which has the motto 'a superhero has my back' at its core, came from Jo's experience with a sudden and life-threatening condition.  In this episode of the show Jo talks to me about the moment the brand was born, how she's gone from having an idea in a hospital bed, in January 2016, to being one of the most written about and exciting new brands around. We discuss how Jo's health issues have changed her approach to life, how she plans to grow her business into a global brand, and why it's hard work, guts, grit and a lot of planning that get you where you want to be. She also tells me about how her intuition has changed since having brain surgery... I learned a lot from Jo in this episode and I hope you do too.  The charities Jo and Scamp & Dude work with include: Don't Forget the Kids & Grief Encounter  Scamp & Dude is available in-store and online at Liberty and from the website Scamp & Dude. If you'd like to get in touch with the show you can email me at thebeautypodcast@gmail.com or you can find me over on Twitter - @emmaguns and Instagram @emmaguns or go to Facebook to like the podcast's page.

Joining me in this episode is Sali Hughes (@salihughes/@salihughesbeauty) who invited me over just before the launch of her second book Pretty Iconic - the follow-up to her first book Pretty Honest - to have a good old chinwag. I'd like to be able to wrap up exactly what we covered during this epic chat into a neat little nutshell, but it is neither structured nor predictable - so do come along and enjoy the audio ride...

Matthew Curtis: Willpower, Work Ethic and Trusting the Process

I met Matthew Curtis (@matthewcurtishair) on a press trip last year and though we may have only known each other a short while, he's one of my favourite people in the industry. We bonded, in part, over hair loss. I have mild female pattern baldness and Matthew has had his own issues with hair loss, and the way he spoke to me about his experience, and how I could manage my own situation, was gentle, kind and I really felt like he was on my side and knew what I was going through. We've established he's a really nice guy, right? But he's also an impressive businessman. He's a hugely talented hair stylist who has been the ambassador for brands, been the lead stylist backstage at fashion shows in London, New York, Paris and Milan, worked with numerous celebrities and has many TV credits under his belt. It's an impressive CV and there's more, much more, that Matthew wants to achieve. He's just opened a concession salon in the very beautiful Rosewood Hotel in London, has a beautiful salon at Hoarcross Hall and his home salon, if you will, is in Stratford-upon-Avon - next stop, the world? I talk to Matthew about how he's achieved so much since starting out working at Toni & Guy, what his aspirations are for the future and when he's going to find time to take a holiday.  We chat about work ethic, being a wheeler-dealer, the importance of having confidence in yourself and not getting caught up in the muck and bullets.  I also encourage you to follow Raphelle, Matthew's fiancée, on E-bop TV and on instagram @raphellesaintmarshall Thanks for listening and don't forget to subscribe over on iTunes, and if you want sneak previews of upcoming shows and guests, sign up for my newsletter here --> NEWSLETTER.

Henrietta Norton: Stress, Anxiety and Adrenal Fatigue.

Should you be taking supplements? Are you stressed? Have you been stressed for a while? In this episode of The Beauty Podcast with Emma G I'm joined by Henrietta Norton (@henriettanorton) from Wild Nutrition (@wildnutrition) who answers these questions, and more... In addition I quiz her on adrenal fatigue and adrenal exhaustion. Have you, or do you, feel stressed all the time? If you're constantly running on adrenalin - think panic over whether you've answered all your emails, staring into the blue-light of your smart phone until all hours, worrying about getting every done - then you may actually be stressed from being stressed.  Henrietta lists the signs of stress and adrenal fatigue so listen on if you want to check off your stressors... We also talk about the Danish culture of hygge, how to lower your stress levels and how to make small incremental changes that can help you lead a healthier life. And if meditation is something that is on your list of things you're going to get around to - but it's been on that list for over 12 months - then Henrietta's words of wisdom may actually prompt you to make it a priority. This won't be Henrietta's first visit to The Beauty Podcast with Emma G, so if you listen to the show and want to ask her any questions email me at thebeautypodcast@gmail.com and she will answer them next time. I really hope you enjoy the show, and if you do I'd be so grateful if you could head over to iTunes and add a 5-star rating and review.
