This week hosts Alice Marcus Krieg and Carmen Devito are in studio talking about botanical beauty, a first installment of a four part series, previewing plants’ deep roots in beauty regimes. From the Egyptians and Cleopatra to Ancient Rome to Indian cosmetic practices, plants (and other interesting ingredients!) have been used around the world throughout the ages to dye hair, cover scars, enhance eyebrows, tint skin, and more. Tune in for a fascinating show and hear what the next few episodes have in store!
