Times are tough for all of us right now, and you are, no doubt, looking for new ways to get the most out of your time during this weird moment in history. One great way to do this is to listen to podcasts. Entertaining, educational, informative and sometimes even funny, podcasts can almost feel like there’s someone in the room with you, which is ideal while we’re self-isolating. Not sure where to start when it comes to choosing the right one for you? Well, we’ve got you covered with these 5 podcasts that aesthetic practitioners should be listening to...
Presented by Skinviva’s Dr Tim Pearce and Dr Adam Cheong, Aesthetics Mastery discusses a whole range of topics. From in-depth discussions about various non-surgical treatments to advice on complications, risks and benefits, and chats about how treatments can improve mental health. The co-hosts and their esteemed guests also discuss topics like how to go from being an NHS worker to having a successful aesthetics business and the emotions of starting out in medical aesthetics.
Work like a woman
We all know Mary Portas as the Queen of Shops, but did you know she also has a great podcast based on her successful book Work Like a Woman? In this podcast, she talks to special guests about a whole range of themes, such as building confidence, flexible working, the mental load, how to be true to yourself and how to reach the top. Positive and inspirational, this podcast is not just for women, but is a great way to learn how to navigate your way through the world of work - whether that’s your own business or someone else’s.
The Beauty Podcast with Sali Hughes
Beauty journalist Sali Hughes hosts this Avon podcast, in which she discusses all things beauty. In each episode, she’s joined by a range of high profile guests (think Pixiwoo, Caroline Hirons, Alice Hart-Davis and Dr Frances Prenna Jones) to talk about topics such as skin issues, skin care, makeup, aesthetic treatments and more. It’s straight to the point, honest and fun.
Beauty Decoded - Let’s talk tweakments
Pharmaceutical company Allergan produced and funded Beauty Decoded - Let’s Talk Tweakments, and that’s exactly what the podcast does. Each episode features different hosts - from Nadine Baggott and Allergan’s Bill Meury discussing safety in aesthetics, to Dr Vincent Wong and Sinita chatting about how less is more when it comes to aesthetic treatments. This podcast includes fab guest hosts and interesting topics to really get you thinking. And it’s great for looking at aesthetics from a consumer point of view too.
Not just about non-surgical aesthetics, Inside Aesthetics covers topics such as cosmetic surgery, wellness and injectables. The hosts are David Segal, who has set up two successful cosmetic surgery brands and owns three non-surgical clinics, and Dr Jake Sloane, who specialises in facial aesthetics. The two co-host the show, inviting top guests to join them and discuss everything from injectables to blepharoplasty, even down to how to market your aesthetic business. There are tons of episodes to listen to, so work from top to bottom or take your pick.
Ok, ok, so I said 5, but here’s one more podcast that might just make you feel that bit more positive during this strange and uncertain time. Happy Place is hosted by Fearne Cotton, and focuses on the bright side of life. In each episode, Fearne interviews a star guest (Bryony Gordon, Nadiya Hussain, Joe Wicks, Katie Piper and Davina McCall are just a few of the well-known personalities who have appeared on the podcast), and discusses the challenges that her guests have faced and overcome to get to where they are in their careers and lives. Just what we all need at the moment - a bit of positivity and a reminder that we are stronger than we think.
