    Loved this episode with Dr. Whitney Bowe. I can’t find any of the products she recommended listed anywhere? I listen when I commute and it’s hard to remember when throughout the episode something was mentioned. I’d love to try the Korean sunscreen and squalane oil brand she liked. A transcript to search would also be helpful if it’s too hard to extract the recommendations. Thanks for such a great episode!
