Jen Atkin and her 5-min morning hair trick

PLUS: A beauty editor’s personal experience and tips in packing light when travelling & why the bacteria on your skin isn’t as bad as you think.

In this episode of Get Lippy, Jen Atkin (the podcast’s very first guest!) shares her in-flight product essentials, literally the quickest morning hairstyling routine, and indulges us in a round of quick-fire beauty questions.
