Why Are 10 Year Olds Engaging in Ten Step Skincare Routines? How The Cult Of Beauty Affects Us All

Have tweens always been this interested in beauty products? And how is ageism affected by classism?

In this extra special episode of the podcast, Ione and Gina are joined by writer, editor and brand strategist Funmi Fetto to discuss Wellcome Collection’s exhibition The Cult of Beauty. Tracking how we went from religious obsession with the visuals of virtuousness to generation alpha purchasing retinols, Funmi, Ione and Gina are asking why people have always been obsessed with looking good.

The Cult of Beauty is a free exhibition running until the 28th April 2024 at Wellcome Collection, more info here.
