Sylvia Platjouw has been working as a cosmetics journalist for 20 years now. At this moment she is working in Amsterdam-NL as beauty director at Women’s Health Magazine. She also contributes to the twice a year appearing independent beautymag Mirror Mirror. For her ”beauty” is the combination of lifestyle, trends, feeling healthy inside & outside and being adventurous. This also stretches to the concern of how beauty products affect our skin and our natural world.
In her opinion beauty journalists, bloggers, vloggers and editors should be well educated about skin conditions, allergies and products, because they are the medium that can inform the public and guide them in choosing the right product.
