Jennifer, also known as Skin Nerd and founder of Irish skincare brand Skingredients, is a source of knowledge for all things skin.
She told RSVP Live: “Statistically, 60% of our skin aging is due to our lifestyle choices while 40% is due to genetics.
“People become conscious of their skin when they look a little older than their years. A lot of people rely on injectables and aesthetic and cosmetic treatments and that’s not to discourage people from doing it. do, but what you do every day at home will sometimes benefit your skin more than getting treatment.”
Jennifer likes to use the term “pro-aging”, to get away from the idea that aging is a bad thing.
“The main thing from a pro-aging perspective is SPF, because the potential acceleration of aging is actually caused by too much light,” she said.
“SPF is non-negotiable. Vitamin A has the ability to repair skin’s DNA and trigger your skin’s natural collagen and elastin, so it’s an absolute must.”
She added: “You can go for things like peptides, which are amino acids. Hyaluronic acid is a quick fix because it hydrates, and although it’s not specific to aging, the more hydrated the skin, the more dewy the skin and the more water there is in the skin, the better it heals and the better it performs.
“Vitamin B3, also known as niacinamide, has the ability to reduce the appearance of pigment.”
Skingredients Skin Shield is their cult and critically acclaimed SPF 50.
They also have Skin Protein, which is their version of a vitamin A and C serum, as well as Skin Veg, which is their hyaluronic acid serum.
