We’re always on the hunt for skincare essentials that can become part of our staple collection. However, what we don’t want is to use products that are full of plastic that cause more harm than good. We are trying harder to be eco-friendly so we were delighted when we spotted the Cleanse Off Mitt’s new look.

The Cleanse Off Mitt has had a makeover- a bright and bubbly hot pink and sleek grey pairing to attract eyeballs and appeal to the demographic that cares about cool. The protective packaging is now reusable to keep your COM clean, no matter where you’re taking it, whether it’s the gym, on holidays or at home.

With Skingredients now in the mix you may be asking where the Cleanse Off Mitt fits in. They’ve added 00 to the packaging because the Cleanse Off Mitt is the official 00 step of your Skingredients Core 4: 01 PreProbiotic Cleanse, 02 Skin Veg, 03 Skin Protein and 04 Skin Shield SPF 50 PA +++.

Beauty lovers have purchased a massive 500,000 Cleanse Off Mitts to date around the world. That’s potentially 45 million wipes that haven’t been used.

Not only is the COM friendlier to the skin than wipes, it’s friendlier to the planet. The majority of wipes are not recyclable or compostable and end up contributing greatly to landfill, or being flushed and ending up in the ocean.

Even cotton pads aren’t the solution. Most cotton pads are treated and bleached to keep them looking and smelling good, these processes mean that the naturally biodegradable cotton is no longer suitable for composting.

The Cleanse Off Mitt helps to cut down on single-use beauty waste but we know we still have a long way to go.

David and Stephen said: “Eating more fruit and vegetables is one of the kindest things we can do for our planet and our bodies and skin. At The Happy Pear, we want to create a healthier and happier world and true health really starts from within and what we put into our bodies, that’s why we’re so happy to partner with Jennifer on The Happy Skin to empower people to make change through the food they eat.” said the brothers Stephen and David Flynn. 

Jennifer added: "Skin health requires an approach that addresses not only the outside of your skin but the inside, focusing on feeding it from the root, so to speak. I feel that the skincare you use on the outside should mirror what you get in through food for the best results.

"The Skin Nerd is about empowering people by arming them with the education they need to take care of their skin, which is something I’m lucky to have done for years in my career as a global skin tutor. I believe that feeling confident in your skin and having the right tools to get there is integral, so I am delighted to have joined forces with Dave and Stephen on The Happy Skin online course!”

Skin Nerd founder Jennifer Rock has some exciting news…

The skin care company is opening a new online department store that will have all of our favourite products.

The new store will also allow customers to access selected products from the store without needing to have a consultation.

So, how exactly is this new store different from Nerd Network?

Nerd Network is an exclusive online community of advice, education and access to highly active products, whereby each member avails of an online skin consultation with a Nerd or Nerdette.

After the online consultation, you are officially a member of the Nerd Network and will be sent a nerdie homework sheet, explaining how and when to use your recommended, results-driven products that are shipped straight to your door.

All the professional products are sent with nerdie love.

Whereas the online store is for people who want to buy certain products that don’t require a consultation from the Nerd Network.

It is dedicated to those who prioritise their skin’s health and already know which products they need or would like to try.

The store is divided into sections including, inside (nutritional supplements), outside (skincare), on top (mineral makeup) and brand names.

The Skin Nerd’s most beloved products from Yon-Ka, IMAGE and Bellápierre, Dermalogica, Advanced Nutrition, Environ, Pestle and Mortar, Dermastir and Tan Organic are currently available on the open store.

From SPF, spritzes to mineral makeup, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Additional products will be launching on the store in phases, so keep your eyes on the site.

We don’t need to be told to look after to our faces. This is where the vast majority of people at least cleanse. The rest of the body, however, is often neglected when it shouldn’t be. There are plenty of skin concerns that are more likely to appear on the rest of the body than on the face, such as keratosis pilaris (more commonly known as chicken skin), dry, scaly skin and cellulite.

If you want to see results when it comes to concerns of the body, you need to be using results-driven body products!

 

Chicken Skin aka Keratosis Pilaris

Keratosis pilaris, KP, or chicken skin, is usually found on the back of the arms but it can actually be found anywhere on the body. It looks like very small reddish, pinkish or flesh-coloured dots and has a bumpy texture. It is incredibly common amongst Irish hoomans… In fact, it may be the reason we’re so fond of a cardigan.

KP is caused by an overproduction of keratin, a key skin protein, which means that there is a traffic jam within the pore, leading to the signature bumps. This isn’t a one-time issue – this is how your skin operates so it needs a helping hand to shift things out of the pore.

Taking vitamin A and omega supplements will help to ease your KP as well as cleansing the area with an exfoliating acid wash!

Dry, Scaly Body Skin

Dryness or a scaly appearance or texture to the skin is a sign that you’re lacking in essential fatty acids (omegas). Omegas boost your skin’s barrier function and hydrate from the inside out so if you’re prone to “elephant elbows”, make sure you’re getting them into you.

Cellulite

Cellulite happens to a majority, not a minority, of hoomans. It is incredibly common, especially in us women. You cannot completely banish cellulite per se but you can improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage through body brushing. I body brush on the daily and I see an improvement when I’m doing it versus when I’m not doing it.

Eating healthy food rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals doesn’t help with cellulite directly. However, nutrient-rich food assists our body in the creation of collagen and aids skin cells in protecting themselves which can have a knock on effect when it comes to the formation of cellulite. Think about how you’re fuelling your body!

Jennifer’s debut book, “The Skin Nerd: Your Straight-Talking Guide To Feeding, Protecting & Respecting Your Skin”, is out now, available from Eason and Dubray Books! For more information on how to look after the skin on your body, join the Nerd Network!
