Body Image Bandaids for a Beauty Sick World with Renee Engeln

Meet Renee…

An award-winning psych professor at Northwestern University, Director of The Body and Media Lab, author of Beauty Sick and a TEDx Talk speaker whose research on body image with an emphasis on how cultural forces shape our views of our bodies has appeared in numerous academic journals. Tune in to our inspired conversation with Renee to discover the 5 (metaphorical) bandaids you can use to support a healthier body image in a beauty-obsessed world.

Meet our partner: Ro Collective

I love marking special milestones in my life with a gift for myself… flowers, jewelry, you name it! I love how jewelry can help you tell a story, and I found the most beautiful bracelet from Ro Collective to celebrate our Raw Beauty Reset with Kaitlyn Bristowe. Ro Collective is a Latina-owned fine jewelry company that uses ethically sourced gold, gemstones and diamonds for their handmade pieces. Talk about stunning! Want to treat someone you love (hint hint- yourself!)?
