Jessica DeFino

Jessica DeFino is a beauty writer for The Zoe Report, covering skincare — especially that of the natural/clean/green variety — hair care, makeup, nails, and more. She’s never met a beauty supplement she didn’t like. As a freelance writer, she’s done a little bit of everything, from songwriting to ghostwriting Khloé Kardashian's sex column to editing a book on ancient symbology and copywriting for fashion labels. (Yup, everything.) But these days, she prefers to stick to her true loves: natural skincare and holistic health, with a dash of woo-woo wellness. Jessica’s work can be found on Vogue, Harper's BAZAAR, Fashionista, Cosmopolitan, HelloGiggles, New York Magazine's The Cut, and more. (See? Her Songwriting degree from the Berklee College of Music *totally* came in handy, Dad!) Jessica lives in Savannah, GA. You can get in touch with her at jessicalyarbrough.com, or on Instagram @jessicalyarbrough_.
