I am thrilled to be joined today by a fabulous new voice in skincare, Alicia Lartey, who is on a mission to bring impartial skin care advice, knowledge and understanding to a new generation. The scientist and aesthetician has carved a niche for herself on Instagram as one of beauty's most personable, straightforward and knowledgeable skincare experts.
Today I am speaking to Alicia about the relationship between skin and shame. Shame is a negative emotion that has been shown to cause psychosocial distress in patients with various skin disorders. Alicia explains that society should be blamed for creating this idea of ‘normal skin’ and encourages us to take steps to feel empowered even when we have skin imperfections. Alicia’s outlook on skin is refreshing to say the least and I can’t wait for you all to hear this episode.
