Let’s face it, the Irish winter can be somewhat unforgiving when it comes to the weather. We get it all: hail, rain, snow and wind. It can be harsh on your face and hands. Skingredients founder, expert dermal facialist and bestselling author Jennifer Rock, explains that it all comes down to hydration. Cold air doesn’t retain as much moisture as hot air and that’s why skin can feel dry during the winter.

Skingredients is a range of award-winning, results-driven skincare products. The range is based on the idea that everyone needs to eat certain food groups throughout their life to maintain optimum gut health including antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids - the same can be said for their skin. So Jennifer created this range formulated with ingredients that have been clinically-proven to nourish, protect and maintain your skin’s health.

Check out these beauty secrets from Skingredients to help protect your skin this winter.


Start your hydration and skin protection with a balanced and effective regime. The Skingredients range has been developed as a mix and match formula filled with vitamins, fats, peptides, and fruit, veg and botanical extracts for healthy skin. Starting with the PreProbiotic Cleanse which does more than just remove make-up. It contains a prebiotic-probiotic complex and polyhydroxy acid to help to balance your skin’s microbiome and hydrate your skin. The next step Skingredients recommend is their Skin Veg pre-serum which is touted by many as a superjuice for your skin. Skin Veg is enriched with hyaluronic acid, a humectant hero that attracts and retains moisture. Top it off with the Skin Protein Serum, a creamy, hydrating serum for brighter, healthier looking skin. Its ingredients include retinyl palmitate, a more progressive form of vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E.


Have you ever thought about good fats for your skin? Well Skingredients have and that’s why they developed a secret weapon called Skin Good Fats which is described as a ceramide barrier balm. Ceramides are fats that naturally occur in the skin to help rebuild the skin’s natural moisture barrier and prevent further moisture loss. Shea butter glycerides are another all important ingredient to moisturise without clogging pores. Apply at night after using cleanser and serum. Use outward motions to spread gently across the skin to help replenish and restore equilibrium to your skin. As an added beauty hack you can also use Skin Good Fats on your elbows, knees and other areas affected by dry skin not just your face.
