Do women tend to have more orgasms with men who are better-looking (i.e.,symmetrical)? Are people who date on the Internet more likely to be looking for commitment? Is the waist-hip ratio still a factor? The relationships between beauty, sex, and love are more than fascinating when you’re talking about them with anthropologist and author Helen Fisher, who’s also the scientific advisor to Match.com. She tells us some pretty wild things about attraction, dating, physical appearance, keeping the spark going in long-term relationships (sweatpants: not ideal), and the ways in which many of our urges are driven by biology. At the end of the day, it turns out beauty’s all about love. (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)
What’s the secret to the world’s glowiest skin? Why use clean, nontoxic personal-care products? (And what’s the easiest way to make the shift?) Can lasers and injectables really make a person look better? What skin-care tips and hair ideas are worthwhile? What does it mean to look and feel pretty or sexy or even beautiful? And can we—should we—try to sustain that as we get older? When it comes to beauty, there are 70 billion questions. On The Beauty Closet, the newest podcast from goop, editors Jean Godfrey-June and Megan O’Neill are going to answer as many of them as they can. They’ll have help from top makeup artists, dermatologists, cleanbeauty founders, researchers, plastic surgeons, hairstylists, and of course their boss, Gwyneth Paltrow.
