Welcome to Mission Confidence, a special edition of the Going For Goal podcast sponsored by Philips, designed to help you on your body confidence journey. This podcast has been created as part of our Project Body Love initiative, which is all about challenging the way we think, feel and speak about our bodies, embracing what makes us unique and putting an end to negative self-talk and embarrassment. Philips believe that hair removal should be a choice, and that it looks different for everyone. If you do choose to remove your body hair - whether you prefer to take it all off or to tackle your legs, armpits or bikini line only - Philips has a range of hair removal tools to suit your needs.
On Mission Confidence, over four episodes and with the help of some very wise women, we’re going to be exploring confidence in its various facets and forms – with the goal of helping you tap into yours. Today, we're discussing how women can find their way back to who they are as individuals after becoming parents, with Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn AKA comedy duo The Scummy Mummies. Between the laughs (these two are gloriously unfiltered) we discuss the often-complex journeys of body acceptance that can play out post-baby, plus why small acts of self-care may prove powerful when it comes to reinforcing confidence. Of course, we also talk about body hair: specifically, why there's no right or wrong approach, plus how one newly-single mum is enjoying experimenting with the Philips Lumea IPL device as she prepares to date again this summer.
