ASK LAURYN

One of the reasons that I started The Skinny Confidential was to create a resource for women that combined tons of beauty tips & tricks from all over the world.

Another one of my intentions was to constantly be engaged & basically friends with the community. As the brand has grown it’s gotten hard to respond to every single DM, comment & message. & that bothers me.

I had to get really crafty & create something that would allow me to still be able to connect with everyone. I still spend an hour in the morning & an hour at night responding to DMs, but it’s still not enough.

SO, I have 3 ways to get answers to you guys that I think will really remedy the situation.

GET YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED:

♡ 1. Ask Lauryn page

This is the page where you can ask me anything anonymously. I try to check this a couple times a month & batch a bunch of the questions.

It’s super easy- just go to Ask Lauryn via this link or click “ask” in the top right nav bar dropdown on the blog, type your question in the blank white rectangle, hit the pink button under it, & voila!

The best part about this is you can read everyone’s questions. Grab a glass of chilled rosé & have fun scrolling.

♡ 2. @and.the.skinny.was.like Instagram

This is my new Instagram account where I can really micro-blog & write about shit I’m very much obsessed with…BUT without the overly curated pictures. It’s just straight to the point, no BS, real info on products I LOVE & use on a daily basis. It’s the perfect extension of the blog in a way because it’s a super handy, quick resource for products. Think of it as a new way to stalk some ICONIC, affordable products on IG.

ANYWAYS, it’s so quick & easy for you to ask me a question on an Instagram post & it’s a really quick way to get a hold of me. I mean in the COMMENTS on an actual post, not in the DMs. It’s also efficient because everyone can see the questions & if they have the same one, it’s already answered.

@and.the.skinny.was.like just launched so be sure you’re following. You guys will LOVE!

♡ 3. @theskinnyconfidential Instagram

I’m pretty good about getting back to all comments on @theskinnyconfidential posts. DM’s can get tricky because they kinda get lost, but in the comments it’s easier because it’s right on the picture.

Also, I thought it would be fun for you guys to ask any questions you have on this post. Then I can do a big post answering all the questions left in the comments.

Like I said, I wanna make sure this space continues to be an intimate space where we all connect. Of course if you wanna connect with each other feel free to join TSC Secret Facebook Group. Just go here & click +JOIN GROUP.

I’m off for a date night with Michael. We’re going to go somewhere new that came highly recommended.

Looking forward to seeing all your questions below.

+ be sure to follow @and.the.skinny.was.like 

  1. I love how you try to connect as much as possible with your community ? Since I am also a huge fan of your podcast and am listening to every single episode while I walk to work (you even answered my question on the relationship episode!! i was so happy about that!) I wanted to ask: without revealing who, was there ever a guest on the podcast that you regretted inviting?

  2. Hey Lauryn! What is are your favorite eye cream/serums for puffy eyes? I’m SO prone to puffiness, and I do lymphatic drainage facial massage but also need a good go-to eye serum.

  3. Wait. The new IG account seems to just be a place where you tell people to buy something and include an affiliate link so you get money for it? I’d be cool with this if you were upfront about what it is (and also if you adhered to the FCC rules that say you have to clearly disclose affiliate links)

    1. I don’t think she’s trying to sell anything there. We just constantly message her asking about products she has referenced, so this makes it easy to find the product she recommended. Lauryn is always 100% up front about ads so I’m confident she isn’t being shady here. If you’re not into the new account don’t follow….

  4. hi lauryn! have you found a botox person you love in LA? going there next weekend and kinda wanna get it while i’m in town. thank you!

  5. Hello Lauryn!!

    I am desperate for a bra that fits! Since there are so many new intimate brands launching, I need to know the best one! I think it would be amazing to test all the up and coming bra/intimate brands to rate each one for fit, comfort, quality and price

  6. I placed an order on 5/6 but have not received it yet ? Would you please check on it for me . Thanks , Sharon

  7. Hey Lauren, what would be your ideal weekly exercise routine for optimal mental health, muscle strength, and weight management? I’ve recently switched from Lagree (it felt like leg day every day) to traditional reformer pilates. I also love golf, which can be pretty physical and demanding on the body, especially if you walk 18 holes. I aim to work out 4-6 days a week. Would you recommend also doing weight training? I know the experts say women don’t bulk up, but my body type does get stalky when I do a lot of heavy-weight training.
    Thank you!

  8. Hi!! I love the podcast and was looking up the show notes to get some details from an episode, I scrolled to the bottom and clicked the blogdoo.com link and it looks like the website might have been hacked? Wanted to let you guys know! I searched blogdoo as well and the link was corrupt.

  9. Hi Lauren, love the podcast so much. Since taking liposomal glutathione have you noticed a difference in the amount you tan/skin colour? I want to take it but apparently it lightens skin tone, have you noticed this? Im already very pale so don’t want my skin to go lighter.

  10. Hi, my package was left outside my front door and would have gotten up to 95-100 degrees. Are these ok to stick in the fridge and eat when cold?

  11. not sure if you are aware or if it’s the intention but when I click “Blog Design” on your website, it links to an Asian adult site.

  12. HI! My name is Kassi I live in Alaska. You would probably love it here because there is hardly ever any sunshine..HAHA. Anyways I have a couple of questions. What do you think of Lush products? Second question, How did you get to where you are today and are you hiring? HA! For real though, I would love to be able to share my routines, life, loves with people, however I don’t know how to start. I thought of youtube however I have never edited a video in my life! Thank you so much for the insight! Chow!

  13. Hi Lauryn, can you please do a review of water filtration systems? Some of them (like the Karben) are upwards of $5K. I really want to prioritize having access to the cleanest water, but I’m not sure which one(s) are worth the investment! Let me know xx

  14. My ice roller fell off the counter and wanted to know if there is a warranty. I was shocked it cannot be repaired. I have enjoyed my roller.

  15. Please, I need your help! I just listen to your podcast on chemicals and how they affect your hormones, etc. and that you have had PCOS. My daughter who is only 21 is experiencing that she just went to the lab and got results back where her testosterone is high and other things are off. She works for a company where she has to clean periodically the bathrooms with a cleaner called Virex! It’s horrible! How do I go after this company? I need help on what to do. I’m trying to get her to leave this job and look for another what it’s not easy. She lives in New York with much gratitude for your response, a very concerned mama.

  16. I want to unsubscribe from the mountain of emails you send. Love your products but cannot handle amount of emails

  17. Hello Lauryn,

    Our daughter (she’s a PA) brought your podcast to my attention. Learning and implementing a bio hackers improvements for oneself, (for almost a year) my first listen to ‘The Skinny Confidential’ , was engaging. I was like ‘ok’ I’ll add this to my list:) However, the podcast with Armra’s founder, Dr. Sara Raha, MD made me cringe. NOT because of your guest, her products, or you but because YOUR advertisements on that specific episode. Pillsbury and Poise… Having health and mind awareness, along with your platform, this is a mixed message, a oxymoron and so much more. As you may or may not be aware but those products are not part of a healthy mind and body. I urge you to take into consideration what your presenting? I appreciate your information, your excitement for life, your open book conversations but please ask yourself; are you being authentic to yourself, family and listeners? Thank you for your time and the freedom to speak up in a respectful way. Love your energy! Go girl go:)

  18. Please please have Jessie James Decker on the podcast! Would absolutely love to have you in a space together to talk about cooking, marriage, motherhood, fitness, entrepreneurship etc.

  19. Bring on a fertility/specialized guest with advice on what to say, what to ask, what not to say, what not to ask, what to do and what not to do/say to women during pregnancy, loss of an unborn, reason to terminate, etc. I never know what’s appropriate (obviously not going to be blunt) but I am genuinely curious so I can learn and be there!
