EP 39: Let's Talk Dirty: Interview with Jasmina Aganovic

"Nature is a critical participant in our health and our wellbeing, and having a connection to it is crucial."

Kris sits down with Jasmina Aganovic from Boston-based wellness company Mother Dirt to talk about the skin biome and why it is important for our health to cultivate good bacteria, even on our skin. Whether we know it or not we all hold certain beliefs about cleanliness, and a lot of them involve using soap to become clean.

But what if you learned that you didn’t need to use soap to wash after all? And that some products contain ingredients that strip your good skin bacteria away? Jasmina breaks down our normal cleaning habits and routines and shows us how being more mindful of what we put on our skin may help improve our health.
