Jennifer is a bit of an ingredients freak, be it food or skincare, haircare or cosmetics so expect geeky, expect nerdy, in fact expect anything but beauty (pictures tell a thousand words).

Notionally placed in the beauty writers team, Jennifer may well pop up anywhere, she is especially fond of showcasing amazing charities, fabulous businesses that benefit cancer patients and those that have been through treatment and wonderful and inspiring individuals (like the rest of the writing teams).

Jennifer Young has a BSc (Hons) in Biology and is an experienced microbiologist, is a qualified and practicing nutritional therapist, an associate member of the Royal Society of Medicine, a qualified aromatherapist, beauty therapist and product formulator. She has two post-graduate qualifications in health-related fields, has been accepted by the courts as an expert witness for occupational health cases and has been active in medical research. She is the creator of Defiant Beauty, specialist skincare for those affected by cancer, founder of and author of ‘Recognise Yourself’ a beauty and well-being guide for those living with and beyond cancer.
