Author: Emma Guns, Award-winning beauty journalist

Emma Gunavardhana, aka Emma Guns, is an award-winning beauty journalist and podcaster. Writing for a number of magazines and newspapers, Emma has contributed to Red, The Sunday Times Style, The Telegraph, Women’s Health and Stylist. She hosts the UK’s top-rated beauty podcast on Apple Podcast, The Emma Guns Show, covering topics including beauty, health, wellness, mental health, eating disorders, business, entrepreneurship and finance.

Emma prides herself on covering a variety of topics in a way that’ll be relevant and meaningful to her global audience and add value to anyone listening who may be curious about how to become the best version of themselves.

Recently Emma has welcomed fitness expert Jillian Michaels onto the podcast, author and podcaster Gretchen Rubin, Headspace founder Andy Puddicombe, former Secret Service Agent Evy Poumpouras and TV host and judge Michelle Visage.

Behind the podcast Emma was struggling with her own issues; undiagnosed depression and anxiety and a self-destructive binge-eating disorder. In speaking out about these experiences on the show she has not only overcome these issues, but receives messages daily from men and women who have listened to the podcast who cite her and her guests as their ‘lightbulb’ moment for making a positive change.

Emma’s intention with every episode of the podcast is to create a useful resource, packed with expert insight and credible sources, so her listeners have the best quality information, whether it’s about starting a business, what skincare is best for their skin type, managing their finances or understanding their mental health.
