Join Allure as we explore the inextricable slink between science and beauty — and don't be surprised if you discover your next favorite serum, hair mask, or scalp treatment along the way. Michelle Lee, editor in chief, and Jenny Bailly, executive beauty director, are asking the tough questions and getting the straight answers from dermatologists, cosmetic chemists, and at least one expert on climate change (we said the questions were tough). So if you’ve always wondered what a wrinkle actually is (and how retinol can make it go away), or why your hair is curly (and which polymers will give it the most spring), come get nerdy with us!

Episode Date
Ep. 1 | Sunscreen
Without protection from UV rays, every one of the greatest beauty innovations of the modern age — retinoids, AHAs, hyaluronic acid, lasers — is a big, old waste of time and money. It's fitting then that our debut episode is all about SPF. First, Michelle and Jenny have a frank talk with Shyla Raghav, vice president of climate at Conservation International, about how the state of our environment makes wearing sunscreen more crucial than ever before. Then, dermatologist Caroline Robinson shares everything you'd ever want to know about how to choose and use SPF, including the one place you're definitely not applying it — but should. Don’t miss out on new episodes of Allure: The Science of Beauty on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts. This episode of Allure: The Science of Beauty is presented by Olay Face.
