SheSez with Linda Grasso

Beauty industry journalist and critic Jessica Defino shares what she has uncovered interviewing scientists about the long-term effects of using anti-aging products including two of the most highly touted: retinol and hyaluronic acid. The clean beauty proponent and minimalist also shares the four products she routinely uses on her own skin.

Jessica’s articles have appeared in publications such as the New York Times, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Allure. 

Jessica's career was born out of her experiences working as an app content creator for two of the Kardashian sisters.
