( 2:25 ): Welcome back to TSC HIM & HER Show. This week we are joined by Kate Somerville. She is a widely respected esthetician and badass business woman.

( 5:15 ):  We’re a bit jet legged since Europe. We celebrated our friend’s birthday and Michael dressed up as a jester. It was some of the most fun we’ve had at a birthday party in a while.


( 8:50 ): HER TIP: Check your vitamin levels. After getting my blood drawn at Spark Health I’ve learned I have super high cortisol levels and super low D3. Since then I’ve been using HUM Nutrition vitamins for the past year to boost my D3 levels. Get personalized recommendations at & use promo code TSC20 for 20% off.

  1. This podcast had a perfect blend of wellness and business. One of my favorite podcast of all times is when KS was on the LadyGang, and now on your podcast. I think she offers up great advice. Unfortunately, I invested hundreds of dollars in her skincare and it turned my non-problematic skin into a nightmare. And the Exfolikate that she speaks so highly of did nothing for me. Of course everyone’s skin is individualized and I still think she’s an excellent and informative podcast guest!
