Episode 84: Navigating Clean Beauty & Skincare with Rachel Pachivas and Abby Jean

I love the idea of starting of the New Year with healthy, nourishing routines. Over the past few years, I’ve done that with my skincare routine and I find it to be a great form of self care. When you think of self care, you don’t think of smearing petroleum, endocrine disruptors or other toxic chemicals on your face, right?

In the process of researching the products I use, I’ve learned that there is basically no federal regulation on our personal care products (or on most industrial chemicals in the U.S.)

That was my inspiration behind this episode and I’m so excited to share it with you. This week on the podcast I speak to Abby Jean and Rachel Pachivas — two women from AnnMarie Skincare and they answer all of my questions (and more) including:

• Do products made with botanicals really work as well as our familiar “tried and true” formulations?
• How to start purging your skincare products
• Red flag ingredients too look for
• Nutrient-rich ingredients to look for
• How you know you’re getting a truly organic product (since there are FDA loopholes)
• Web sites and certifications to help you navigate which products are safe, healthy, and don’t test on animals
• Where are we with trying to improve FDA regulations?

Episode 83: Year End Highlights With Andrea & Jason, Plus What’s in Store for 2018

Can you guess which podcast was the most popular of the year? I give you a glimpse into my analytics on this episode (spoiler alert: the #1 episode is not one of Jason’s), plus we talk 2017 highlights (hello, creativity!) and lowlights (puffy eyes), what we’re looking forward to in 2018, and how I aspire to channel both Maria Bamford and Oprah. (PS: Iyengar Yoga “belt” vs. “strap” question still not solved!!)

Episode 82: Restorative Yoga as Radical Self Care With Judith Hanson Lasater and Lizzie Lasater

Judith Hanson Lasater and her daughter, Lizzie Lasater, have been on the podcast separately before. On episodes 64 & 65 I focused on their backgrounds and on the mother-daughter connection. This time, I wanted back up and simply ask the question, “Why restorative yoga?” Why now? And why isn’t “regular” hatha yoga restorative enough? One response, in particular, surprised me — seeing restorative yoga as a radical act of self care in a society that’s so filled with aggression and violence.
