Ep. 356: What LED Light Is Really Doing to Your Skin & The Week’s Beauty News
40:27
There are lots of at-home light therapy gadgets that claim to benefit your skin, but they also raise questions: If red LED light boosts hair growth, what happens when you use it on your face? And if blue light may be problematic when it comes from screens, why are blue LED lights used to treat acne? We’re getting to the bottom of things, with help from dermatologist Blair Murphy-Rose, MD. Plus, Jenn tested the Solawave skincare wand with red light therapy and shares her review. Before that, we’ve got lots of beauty news and our favorite skin, hair, and makeup bargains from all the holiday sales.

MLMs, or multi-level marketing brands, have caught the attention of the beauty world—for better or worse. Some see the direct selling business model as entrepreneurial and perfect for the social media age; others see it as predatory, accusing the brands of giving consultants false expectations about what they can expect to earn (and potentially lose). We invited Dr. Thomai Serdari, a professor at NYU’s Stern Business school and a strategist in luxury marketing and branding, to help us wade through this hot button topic. Before that: We share a pro secret for making red hair dye look natural, and we discuss the Netflix series, “Broken,” specifically the episode all about beauty counterfeiting.
