In this week's episode of RECLAIM, we dive into the conversation of self-care and the beauty industrial complex. Self-care has often been co-opted to mean spa days and mani pedi's, which robs the power that is possible within each of us to cultivate a container of self-respect in order to then change the world. I am joined by Molly Beane, founder of From Molly With Love, as we crack open this topic as two white women and dive into what self-care can do for us as a collective.
