About The Skin Nerd

Jennifer Rock is an award-winning skin lecturer and multi-award winning facialist. She is the exclusive skin and beauty expert for TV3’s Ireland AM and the skin editor at Irish Country Magazine. She is seen regularly on Xposé, heard on Newstalk, Today FM, Sunshine Radio, 2fm, Q102, and has written and contributed to numerous publications nationwide including The Independent, The Times, The Sunday Business Post, Stellar, Irish Tatler,, U Magazine and Image, to name but a few.

The objective of The Skin Nerd ® is to act as an educational platform. The website offers unbiased yet highly qualified advice with a view to ensuring long-term skin health in an informative and objective manner.

The concept was created by multi-award winning dermal facialist and skin lecturer Jennifer Rock, aka “The Skin Nerd”. An award-winning aesthetician, facialist and international skin lecturer for brands and professional bodies such as ITEC and CIDESCO, Jennifer has lectured on skincare in the USA, London, Paris, Melbourne, Glasgow and Dublin. Jennifer has also lectured alongside such aesthetic luminaries as IMAGE Skincare certified plastic surgeon Dr Marc Ronert and the co-creator of the esteemed Harley Street Skin Clinic, London, Dr Aamer Khan.

Jennifer has also attended skin conferences all over the world alongside plastic surgeons, dietitians, cardiovascular surgeons, aesthetic surgeons, nutritionists, and nurses. A keen skin enthusiast, Jennifer realises and appreciates that one angle and one qualification alone is often not sufficient to tackle many stubborn skin conditions.

“One cleanser will not eradicate acne; similarly, antibiotics alone may not provide fast-track results. In addition, certain skin conditions can trigger psychological implications and inhibit an individual leading a healthy and fulfilled lifestyle. If we treat the skin as an organ and respect it accordingly, we will realise it is a systemic condition, not merely a vanity or accessory. It deserves a systematic approach.”

With this unique approach to skin health in mind, Jennifer has assembled a panel of highly qualified professionals, all of whom are at the very top of their respective sectors, to give impartial advice to help people along their journey to optimum skin health. These advisors include: aesthetic medical doctors, functional medical doctors, pharmacists, aesthetic nurses, nutritionists, beauty therapists, makeup artists, acupuncturists and semi-permanent makeup practitioners.

Our Nerd Team


The Skin Nerd has recruited a team of highly qualified skin experts who are intensively trained for a minimum of six weeks prior to their journey with the Skin Nerd company.

We invest heavily into their training, so they can truly submerge themselves into the Skin Nerd philosophies, the very best and latest skincare knowledge, impressive award-winning standards, and the products and ingredients across 30+ different brands.

This training allows our nerdettes address every skin concern in a highly skilled, professional and non-biased manner. They then provide honest, impartial, exclusive advice specific to you and to assist you tackle your personal concerns and  needs. We believe that learning never ends, and all our nerdettes continually advance their knowledge and their skills, both in Ireland and abroad at high-level conferences and meetings.
