Session 309: Black Women & The Beauty Industry

Update: 2023-05-31


The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

Whether your beauty routine simply includes sunscreen and a scrunchie or is a bit more complex with lash extensions and lasers, Black women consumers continue to play a major role in the beauty industry. This week I'm excited to discuss Black women’s participation in beauty culture with Host & Beauty & Style Expert, Blake Newby. During our conversation, Blake and I discuss what it means to be a natural beauty in today’s beauty climate, how to vet dermatologists and estheticians for Black skin, and ways to use beauty/self-care practices to empower your mental health.
