Breaking Beauty Podcast

Apr 28, 2021

Today we’re chatting with Dr. Michelle Wong, known for her easy-to-understand explainers on her Lab Muffin Beauty Science blog and YouTube channel, to break down recent headlines around sunscreens not living up to their SPF rating on the label. (Hello, Purito-gate and Krave-gate!) But that doesn’t mean you should give up on sunscreen – quite the contrary. Tune in for Michelle’s expert advice on finding not only a lovely textured sunscreen that isn’t greasy, chalky and doesn’t mess with your makeup, but one that you can trust to perform as it claims. That’s right, she’s naming names! 

Plus, Michelle reveals how we might be sabotaging the strength of our SPF ourselves – Gwyneth, we’re looking at you – with some helpful tips on how to actually boost sunscreen efficacy, along with the best way to reapply it throughout the day. And if you love today’s episode, be sure to check out Michelle’s awesome new 12-part podcast series called Skincare School, co-hosted by Adore Beauty’s Senior Editor Amy Clark. Happy Sun Days!
