Tune in to hear inspiring stories behind the most iconic, best-selling beauty products and how they came to be, straight from the founders themselves. Plus, get insights and tips from the brilliant minds shaping today’s trends and ideas. With #damngood beauty product reviews – skincare, haircare and makeup and more – you won’t want to buy a thing before tuning in.

In partnership with our friends at Olay, this week we’re asking all of the questions you ever wanted to know from a cosmetic chemist, with Olay Principal Scientist, Dr. Rolanda Johnson Wilkerson. In this uninterrupted chat, the STEM powerhouse enlightens us on the meaning of “chaotic skin,” the most underrated (and most overrated!) ingredients in skincare and what happens to your skin while you sleep.

Plus, stay tuned until the end to find out how old Carlene’s skin really is compared to her actual age, according to a professional imaging device you can now find in derm’s offices and facialist spots.

You'll hear all about:

> Are the latest all-in-one serums as effective as single-ingredient formulations?
> Should you really avoid using vitamin C and niacinamide at the same time?
> The one ingredient that Dr. Wilkerson has been studying lately, proven to be a boon for redness-prone skin
> Why you should always wash your face at night, even if you’ve had a makeup-free day
> The blue-sky skincare product that the chemist wishes she could develop, which doesn’t exist yet
