2020 was the year of going back to the basics and focusing on self care, whether it meant making time to meditate to fill us spiritually or honing on our skincare regimen to make us feel confident. Especially since we’re wearing masks on the daily and our skin is affected by that.

That’s why I am so excited to have industry leader and beauty expert, Shani Darden on my show today.

Considered the secret behind Hollywood’s including Kelly Rowland, Jessica Alba, Emmy Rossum, most flawless faces, expert esthetician Shani Darden sets herself apart with her results-oriented approach to skin care. Her passion for simple, yet effective solutions has earned her clients’ trust and respect in a town where beauty, health, and wellness standards are high.

Shani trained as an esthetician under a leading dermatologist, eventually going out on her own. She developed a passion for creating products she could not find, sending clients home with custom-made formulas between visits. Her Retinol Reform® serum quickly built a huge celebrity following. Today, Shani is sharing her proven formulas and trusted expertise so people everywhere can achieve their best skin.

In June 2019, Shani opened her first flagship studio in Beverly Hills where she treats clients, develops high-performance formulas and shares her expertise with her followers on social media.

057: Stacy Blackman — Skincare for Teenage Boys

057: Stacy Blackman — Skincare for Teenage Boys 1024 512 Chase Jennings

If you have teenage boys, this episode is for you. I am delighted to one of the-cofounders of Stryke club with me today. Between the four founders, they have four boys. As their boys got older, they realized they were buying acne products aimed at girls, so they decided to come together and fill this gap in the skincare market.

Stryke Club, a one-of-a-kind product line made specially for today’s teenage boy. Designed for the busy teen boy, who’s ready for a lesson in self-care, the brand is set to revolutionize the beauty industry thanks to its unique, meticulous and effective combination of clean ingredients. Comprised of three core products and formulated over two years with help from a board-certified pediatric dermatologist, the skincare system promotes clear skin, confidence and mindful grooming habits for life.

Today we’re going to talk more about this innovative skin product and what life is like as a professional mom. We’ll also discuss how to support your child if he’s dealing with acne.

Stacy earned her BS in Economics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and her MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
After graduating from Wharton, Stacy began working in private equity at the Prudential Capital Group in San Francisco. Following business school, she founded and sold her first company, WebWisher.com. During this time, Fortune Magazine chronicled Stacy’s career for a span of nearly two years, running stories about her in several issues and featuring her on their cover in May of 2000. WebWisher is now part of The Knot, a publicly-traded company.

Following WebWisher, Stacy founded Stacy Blackman Consulting (SBC), the leading admissions consulting firm. SBC has now placed thousands of clients in every top MBA program in the world. The company also has a popular video series, runs workshops and has a publishing division. Stacy was elected for two terms to the Board of Directors of AIGAC, the Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants and has published a book, The MBA Application Roadmap.

In 2019, Stacy founded Stryke Club to fill a void in skincare and grooming for teenage boys. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three children.

My Royal Ritual

My Royal Ritual 1280 720 Kanika

 

After binge watching the Royal Wedding (from the ceremony to past interviews to everyone’s viewing party posts!), I thought about how nice it would be to grow up in a castle or become a princess (every girl’s dream, right?!) We’ll leave that to Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton who are doing an exceptional job at setting an example for young girls – they’re following expectations of the monarchy without compromising their authenticity and roots.

Today I decided to have my own little “royal ritual” at home before my kids woke up at 7 am. I used Ranavat Botanics Eternal Reign Masque which detoxifies, removes daily build-up and grime, and leaves skin feeling clean, smooth and supple. It’s like a refreshing green smoothie for your face! Ingredients include French green clay, neem, Manuka honey, and vitamin C – all certified organic. The mask is safe to use a few times a week. Believe me, there’s nothing like turning a #caseofthemondays into a #MasqueMonday. Treat yourself like the queen you are. You deserve it ladies!
