Jennifer Hoffman is a well known actress and tv presenter on Dutch television, with a deep interest and passion for all things sustainable. She is always looking for greener ways to travel and wants nothing more than for her stories to make a difference. We had the opportunity to talk to her about natural skincare and why she loves Witlof Skincare.
WHAT DOES CLEAN BEAUTY MEAN TO YOU?
With Clean Beauty I mean as natural as possible. Honest and pure. In terms of nutrition, lifestyle and skin care. Why use unnatural things when nature has already come up with it so wonderfully?
WHAT IS YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE? AND WHAT MOMENT DO YOU ENJOY THE MOST?
In the morning I first wash my face with cold water, in the evening with warm water, a warm cloth and the Cleansing Mousse. Then I spray the Balancing Toner and first apply 4 of those delicious drops of the Regenerating Oil Serum on my face and then I put on the Rich Cream, which makes my skin poodle soft at night. For daytime I use the Tinted Day Cream with SPF and a touch, which immediately makes me look a lot more handsome. Or as my friend says “wow, you look great this morning”. Maybe that’s what that cream should be called ?
SINCE WHEN DO YOU USE SKINCARE AND HOW HAS IT CHANGED IN RECENT YEARS?
My skincare has changed a lot in recent years. I have suffered from hormonal acne since I was 25 years old and have used all the means you can think of. Especially a lot of chemical spreads and pills that only did symptom control. I now know that good nutrition and natural skin care products do much more for me. Being kind to your intestines and being kind to your skin, we learn too little.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE WITLOF SKINCARE PRODUCTS AND WHICH ONES ARE YOUR FAVOURITE?
I also love other natural skincare brands, but Witlof is my favourite. The Regenerating Oil Serum and the Rich Cream are so delicious. And the Nourishing Day Cream with SPF too. And the Refreshing Eye Cream too. And the Cleansing Mousse. And the Silky Hand Cream! Which I don’t have with me at the moment and miss.
WITH WITLOF SKINCARE WE ARE CONVINCED THAT HEALTHY SKIN GIVES BETTER SKIN. YOU DON’T GET HEALTHY SKIN IN A DAY. WE ARE THEREFORE MORE FOR THE LONG-TERM INVESTMENT THAN THE SHORT-TERM ‘FIX’. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?
We are always looking for quick solutions, we want immediate results. Because society has led us to believe that this is possible. Fast food, fast fashion, social media. Instant gratification. Quick fixes. But at that rate, we are destroying the earth and not finding permanent solutions.
Good things take time. And there’s value in that. Nature takes time and we are nature. So if we all learn to be more patient again, the world would recover a lot of that. And your skin probably does too ?
