#175: Gemma Watts: Glow Journal 2.0

By Jordan Michaelides

Gemma Watts is the Director of Glow Journal Creative, Editor of Glow Journal and all-round skin and beauty analyst. 

We had Gemma on the show before the pandemic and we invited her back to hear her take on the last few months, how Glow Journal has navigated these challenging times, and how the beauty industry will rebound now that we’re heading out of lockdown (hopefully). 

In this episode we covered: 

  • Her mindset on current events and coming out of lockdown
  • How her business is changing in the current landscape
  • The future of the beauty industry
  • How to be an authentic brand ambassador
  • The pros and cons of remote working
