I would like to know if this is true, and if so the scientific explanation behind it. I do love the show and I would really appreciate if you could answer my question Question 2 – Monica says she can’t find a true red lipstick. I try one on and it reads pink, brown or orange. I heard they outlawed an ingredient to make it red. Did this really happen? Can you get a red lipstick? Question 3 – Alicia from Instagram – a huge fan of the podcast, didn’t know who to rant to, so she contacted us. Alicia says, “This is the most outrageous blog post I have ever read concerning sun protection. Where is she getting these claims!? The headline: ‘Is your sunscreen doing more harm than good? Probably.’” Source of the outrage Question 4 – Is hygral fatigue a real thing? You shouldn’t let hair stay wet too long. Is this true?
