EP. 04: Mckel hill on using your diet to combat breakouts, why pizza is a "sometimes" food, & HOW TO MAINTAIN A WORK/LIFE BALANCE


Mirror Mirror’s guest this week is McKel Hill  a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, founder of Nutrition Stripped, and author of the Nutrition Stripped cookbook.    

We talked to McKel about why host Jesse might be breaking out (hint: it involves eating too much pizza and not enough vegetables), the difficulty of maintaining a work/life balance, and the importance of owning ALL of the various red shades of NARS lip pencils.

Download the episode on iTunes or listen above, and scroll down for a full product breakdown and the recipe for McKel’s Beauty Papaya Potion we discussed on the show!
