Who doesn’t want more radiant skin? Not only is our skin our largest organ, but it influences our confidence and how we connect with others. That’s why I'm excited to be sitting down at my Austin, Texas studio with skin expert and longtime friend, Rachel Varga.
Rachel is a double board-certified aesthetic nurse specialist, having performed over 20,000 procedures since 2011. She was one of the first to combine functional slow-aging techniques, biohacking, and modern medical aesthetics—teaching us how to tune in to what our skin is telling us about our internal health and what to do about it.
Not only has she had a significant impact on the world of skin science, but she's also trained countless doctors, nurses, and their teams on the art of aesthetics.
I can personally vouch for Rachel's expertise as she's worked on my skin, enhancing it with innovative techniques involving lights and other intriguing procedures. But today, it's not just about aesthetics or vanity. We dive deep into the health of our skin, specifically discussing how to reduce oxidative stress and implement purification and detoxification techniques to become radiant from the inside out.
With Rachel's unique insights you don't typically hear in the skincare space, you'll learn secrets to having not just younger-looking skin, but more pure energetics.
What you’ll find is that healthy skin is not just about putting some crap on top of it, it's about nourishing your skin from the inside, doing the energetic practices of biohacking, and then using vetted products that actually work and are safe. If you're hungry for more, Rachel helps inspire others with her unique strategies to slow cellular aging and enhance radiance at TheSchoolofRadiance.com and has previously graced us with her wisdom on of this podcast (#668). I also highly recommend checking out her recent paper on Oxidative Stress Status and Its Relationship to Skin Aging. And, be on the lookout for her upcoming book, Radiance: The New Skin Science.
