Liz Trinnear and Eliana Jones have a few things in common. First things first, both women are Canadian. Second, they’re television personalities. And third, they’ve both had a long journey to achieving gorgeous hair, skin and nails. Trinnear and Jones are also two of Nature’s Bounty official brand ambassadors for 2019, which doesn’t come as a surprise after hearing about their struggles with skin conditions, hair damage and weak nails.
Fortunately, I got the chance to chat with both ladies about how they adjusted their morning routines to incorporate more self love and care, and Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies to help them get the healthful glow they never had before.
What was your journey to healthier skin, hair and nails like before using Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies?
LT: I work in TV and with that comes a lot of hot tools on my hair, makeup on my face, and well-manicured nails. But, all of that can take a toll. I wanted to find a supplement that would help my hair, nails and skin feel strong/look amazing and that’s just what these vitamin gummies have brought to my life. I started using them a few years ago when a fellow colleague said ‘vitamin time!’ and we’d all sit and chew them together.
EJ: I was constantly getting acrylic nails which was quite damaging to my cuticles and overall nail strength. I’d brush my hair and see so much breakage from colouring it blonde, and I couldn’t maintain clear skin for more than a week or so. It was important to me to find a supplement to blend in to my daily routine that would help my hair look and feel awesome, my nails feel stronger, and my skin look great. That’s just what Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies have done.
How have those things improved since taking them?
LT: I think a combination of treating yourself better overall and giving your hair, skin and nails a little extra T.L.C. is when you end up seeing change. When I started using the gummies I had cut my hair short to get rid of tons of damage and breakage it had gone through. I was faced with a classic problem: my hair wouldn’t grow! I was looking at ways to help improve the feel of my hair, maintain healthy looking skin and nails. Since then, I have done that successfully.
EJ: My skin has gotten so many compliments and I see less hair breakage in my brush. Everything is pretty maintained since adding the vitamins to my daily routine.
I love a good morning routine. Do you incorporate your Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nail Gummies into yours?
LT: Yes, I’m a big sucker for morning and night routines. I’m more of a night hawk but I like to get up, shower, brush my teeth (sometimes in the shower) and apply my skin care products. I love all creams and serums, and I try my best to remember sunscreen too. Then, I’ll make a tea and have my vitamins.
EJ: Morning routines are my favourite. I start with a coffee or tea, my music, take two of the vitamin gummies. Then I continue with a shower and exfoliate my face, body and scalp. I roll over my face with a super cold jade roller, mix all my skincare goodies on my face, spray a little wave spray in my hair, and off we go.
What has your personal relationship been like with your skin?
LT: I have always been a big healthy skin advocate. Take care of your skin. It’s the largest organ on our bodies. I was born with a rare skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa, which was often very painful as a child. Having the condition taught me a lot but one of the main takeaways is to never take your healthy skin for granted. I’m a huge advocate for protecting your skin with sunscreen, staying well hydrated, having a skin care routine that includes moisturizing a few times daily, and taking supplements like Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nail Gummies.
EJ: I’ve always been blessed with pretty good skin thanks to my Momma bear. However, when I was growing up and to this day I get hormonal breakouts every so often. I couldn’t figure out a way around it. I couldn’t maintain clear skin for more than a week or so because of it. I feel like I was definitely lacking a little biotin in my daily routine to help keep my skin healthy. Now that I have a solid day and night skin routine, I find that I’m less obsessive over my skin and I pick at it a lot less than I used to… mainly because there isn’t much to mess with anymore.
Do you feel they’ve improved your overall well-being?
LT: I believe everything in life plays a big part in our overall well-being. I’m a huge advocate for self-care and self-love. Two very important things we all deserve. I’m a firm believer that a healthy mind helps build a healthy body and a healthy body helps build a healthy mind. Taking time for yourself, whether it’s a workout, meditation, therapy, “me days” or whatever you need to get through, do it. It’s important to keep a good grip on our own happiness. I notice a big difference in my well-being when I am getting enough sleep, working out, keeping hydrated, eating and taking the right nutrients and vitamins. And of course, surrounding myself with things and people I love.
EJ: The gummies have definitely given an extra boost to my glow. I find that I have more energy because I’m stressing less about my hair, skin and nails. My eyelashes are holding up a lot better when I curl them and they look fuller. I don’t feel like they’re about to fall out when I’m taking off my mascara or vigorously curling them. Maintaining my overall wellbeing is a balance of lots of things. For me, I wake up every morning, throw on some sweats, walk to my favourite breakfast place and read a book alone. It allows me to unwind with my morning thoughts and keep me grounded. I struggle with anxiety so I find this mellows me out for the rest of the day. I work out a lot. Right now I’m doing pilates classes.
How does it feel to be chosen as one of the young, female, Canadian talent ambassadors for Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies?
LT: Grateful. When it comes to being a brand ambassador, I’ve always held value in connecting with brands that I’d actually use or purchase. When Nature’s Bounty approached me, it was an organic fit to work with them and I was already a huge fan of their product.
EJ: I was super excited and honoured. I was already using the brand so it was a perfect fit, and I’m excited that I get a chance to share my hair, skin and nail story with girls all over.
