Wow, I am so thrilled. A couple of weeks ago, when I was in the studio at a film shoot for my latest product, with Holland’s Next Top Model winner Akke Marije. Now, at last I can tell you more about it. This week, after extensive searching, and after much reading and testing, I am launching my Vitamin A [...]

2016 has been a truly exciting and eventful year. The year in which my own fine make-up line was launched. The year in which Uncover Skincare has already reached its sixth birthday, we moved to a super new location and we take our first steps in Germany. So much has happened and our whole team has worked[...]

In my blog 'Doctorate' I announced that I would be rather busy for two weeks. All the questions I received are still piled up, but my kids, my beloved and my friends too have all been affected by this.

For the last week I've locked myself away with a mountain of notes, literature and my dissertation. And I don't think that there was anyone who dared to knock on my office door... 15th of June: the moment of truth! On Thursday afternoon, at exactly 13.30 it was eventually time. For one whole hour I had[...]

I have been writing pieces about skin and skincare for more than a year now. And it is getting more and more enjoyable! All the lovely reactions I receive ensures that I still have pleasure in switching on the laptop each morning to check my e-mails and searching for new facts and research findings.

And I've still got enough topics to write about to keep me going for the next 100 years! from Masters To Doctorate. Now and again it is a bit of a compromise; my family and friends, my work for the Velthuis Clinic, writing a book about skincare and then on Tuesday the 15th of June the final stage in ob[...]

I really do have the best job in the World! Last Wednesday I was invited to attend the "mama of the year awards", organised by the magazine Mama. I have been a long time fan of this glossy magazine and now and again I am asked by them to give my views on a skin topic.

With the kids! The best part about this celebrity gala was that the kids could go along with me. I thought it might be a bit too challenging with all four children (the other two being boys age 2 and 3 years) so I just took my girls along. After driving three times around Amsterdam trying to find a park[...]

A burning, prickling, stinging skin. How distressing! And if you look in the mirror you can't really notice anything. Sometimes this happens if you have just applied a new cream, and sometimes if you haven't changed anything at all.

It is estimated that more than 50% of people have sensitive skin. If you are one of these, it is helpful to know what the cause may be. Have you found this out? Then you can try, step-by-step, to get the normality back into your skincare routine as, fortunately, a sensitive skin doesn't mean that you hav[...]

The subscribers to de Telegraaf (Dutch National Newspaper) already received it last weekend: de Telegraaf Vrouw. People were waiting for me waving their magazines, and everywhere I went I saw myself. A strange feeling. But still a very nice one!

Have a good weekend! Regards Jetske. (Dr. Jetske Ultee-Research Physician Cosmetic Dermatology) You can also read 'a load of nonsense' (about human fat in cosmetic products) and 'Jetske in de Grazia'.

First of all, of course, a very happy 2010! As I wrote last year I'll still be "blogging" in 2010, and hope that I can help many people to have healthy and beautiful skin. And what more is there to come this year? The more I delve into cosmetics, the more ideas come to me!

If only there were more hours in the day...I have so many plans for this year! Anyway, very shortly I will be going more into the step by step plan on the blog. Without good basic skincare all the super new techniques, such as laser, RF or peelings, aren't going to make much of a difference. And I guaran[...]

December is always such a busy month. Apart from all the (mostly) enjoyable family events, everyday life carries on: the blog, the interviews, work at the clinic, the research we are doing and all the other things.

And then there is the occasion where you find yourself stuck in the snow with 4 kids in the back of the car who find it all very amusing. Also forgetting to change over to winter tyres...And they are very much a necessity rather than luxury in the 'hills' of Oosterbeek. Right, now my fingers have thawed [...]

I was in the October edition of the Dutch magazine Grazia. This time it was not an 'educational' story about skincare, but one about my own beauty ritual. My daily beauty routine turned out to be so extensive that the editor had to trim it down a little. Regards Jetske. (Dr. Jetske Ultee-Research Physi[...]
