Dermatologist Dr. Susanne Steinkraus is not only an expert in skin care, but also in hair care. Whether brittle, frizzy or dull: In addition to the very decisive genetic predisposition, we ourselves also have the scepter in our hands as to what we make of our mane. Is anti-aging the new craze for hair and are drug injections no longer just for the skin? Answers can be found in the new episode GLOSSIP – the GALA Beauty Podcast.

Dr. med. Susanne Steinkraus is an expert on the largest organ in the human body: our skin! Since 2015 she has had her own private practice in Hamburg-Harvestehude, which is dedicated to dermatology, aesthetic medicine, laser medicine and cosmetics. With a renowned team of specialists, Susanne Steinkraus offers her customers treatments that are carried out using the latest technologies and methods in the industry.

Episode 3: Dr. Susanne Steinkraus: The basics of hair care

“You have beautiful hair”. Tim Toupet sang about it back in 2004 and it is still one of the most beautiful compliments that women or men can get – after all, the head of hair is a certain status symbol and determines whether we feel good or not. But what to do if the mane is genetically predisposed to be simply flat and dull? What if the hair falls out extremely? And can stress, hormonal changes and illnesses cause structural hair changes?

Get to the root of the problem

Dermatologist Dr. Susanne Steinkraus knows that hair can also be cared for. Plasticizers and silicones in conditioners are not exclusively our friends! The hair expert is a fan of treatments such as “Meso Hair Treatments” and needlings. How exactly these work and why baby shampoo is the new hit, you will find out in the new GLOSSIP episode.

Episode 2: Dr. Susanne Steinkraus: What Beautification is all about

It is well known that beauty comes from within. In order to improve our skin quality in the long term, it is not enough to visit the beautician on a regular basis. Dr. Susanne Steinkraus speaks of internal and external influences that need to be regulated. So it’s not all in the hands of genetics. That means: Analyze lifestyle and, if necessary, change it! According to Steinkraus, it is important to create awareness and get to know your own skin early on.

“The skin and gut are pretty good friends.”

Particularly important: the diet! And there, too, can help out. Dietary supplements have seen a lot of hype in recent years. Justified? “It makes no sense to throw in any prebiotics!” Says Susanne Steinkraus and advises individual advice. You can hear what she thinks of the drip spa trend and what Skin Booster and Baby Botox can do in the current GLOSSIP episode.

Episode 1: Dr. Susanne Steinkraus: The basics of skin care

Creams, serums, gels, toners … the cosmetics market seems to be bursting at the seams. How can you keep track of things and find the right products for your own skin? Dermatologist Dr. Susanne Steinkraus recommends looking at the skin individually, because not every piece of advice applies to every skin per se. Sun protection and skin cleansing are excluded! A must for each and every one of us, because excess valley residues from the day need to be removed.

“Less is more!”

The dermatologist is a fan of a small range of skincare products. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten to change the care depending on the season and hormones. How many products there should ideally be, which active ingredients are good for every skin and how a skin analysis works can be heard in the new GLOSSIP episode.
