Skin & Sex
Apr 28, 21 min
Guest: Dr. Keira Barr
On this week’s episode of the Mind Your Skin podcast I am joined by Keira Barr. Keira is a dual board certified dermatologist and menopause specialist. Dr Keira is a prominent leader in women’s medicine, creating a bridge between hormones, skin and mind body medicine to optimize women’s mid life experience. Not only is Dr Keira a skin expert, she is an international world leading speaker, bestselling author, clinical educator and considered a leading authority in women’s health.
In today’s episode we are going to be discussing Dr Keira’s work with the focus on how sex affects our skin. Most people probably think of their sex life and skin regimen as two completely separate self care practices but it turns out the two can go hand in hand. We discuss what the connection is between sex and skin, how physical touch lowers cortisol levels and boosts serotonin and why it increases blood flow to the skin leaving you with that post-sex glow.
Such thoughtful, intelligent and inspiring discussions that reveal so many “layers” of our skin. Thank you Erno Laszlo for this podcast initiative. This truly adds value to the brand. Please continue producing more of these great sessions!
