Dr Sam Bunting: London's Best Dermatologist

by Outspoken Beauty

It's great because Dr Sam Bunting loves squashing beauty myths in terms of what makes a good regime (have you tried the Skin Lab regime builder it aligns with her recommendations). This episode also discusses Tretinoin vs Retinols and the basics on good sunscreen.


Episode synopsis:

Dr Bunting joins host Nicola to cut through the beauty jargon and have an honest conversation about the skincare ingredients that work and that we should be incorporating into our daily routines.


Dr Sam also gives some fascinating insight into her views on cleansing routines (she is NOT a fan of the double cleanse) and why fragranced balms and oils may feel nice but might actually be stripping our skin.

When you just want to look a little fresher, less broken-out, a little less tired, but above all, like yourself, you go to top NYC dermatologist Robert Anolik.

Can vitamins and supplements lead to healthier skin?

by Dermatology Weekly

This is great because although it's a podcast by dermatologist, for dermatologist the discussion about supplements - be it vitamin or protein - and the myriad of marketing to weed through to identify myth from quality product was very interesting. Quick science fact: your body can't digest collagen and then redistribute it to your face. So save your money.


Episode synopsis: Skin appearance is a sign of internal health, and patients who have appropriate vitamin levels naturally have healthier skin. Dr. Vincent DeLeo talks with Dr. Gary Goldenberg about the data on vitamins and supplements that have been shown to improve the skin’s appearance and health.
