Elyse Morency

From: Ottawa, ON

Skin Type: Oily/combination

Skincare Tip: “Less is more when it comes to skincare! Sometimes overdoing it actually makes things worse, so stick to a simple regime that works and that you can follow daily and you'll find it will make a bigger difference than spending a ton of time on an overly complex routine.”

NENA Tip: Try our Natural Skincare Kit for an easy 4-step daily routine.

Codi Lynn

From: Vancouver, BC

Lesli Rossi - @ALifeWellConsumed

Lesli Rossi

From: Vancouver, BC

Skin Type: Combination

Skincare Tip: “Always wear sunscreen! Bring it down to the chest, your neck and decolletage. You need daily protection in more places than you think.”


Janette Shearer - @Avatozoe

Janette Shearer

Vancouver, BC

Skin Type: Oily/acne-prone

Skincare Tip: “The best possible advice I can give is to talk to a professional and actually figure out what your skin type is, especially after big changes in your life like having a child. Before my first daughter was born I had normal skin. After my second I thought my skin was just a bit on the sensitive side. It turns out I have acne and I hate to think of all the money I wasted on skincare that wasn't actually meeting the needs of my skin.”

Kama Jones - @KamaDawnJones

Kama Jones

Surrey, BC

Skin Type: Normal/oily

Skincare Tip: “I religiously apply a Vitamin C serum and sunscreen in the morning and retinol at night. Also, invest in a visor that fits in your purse so you have sun coverage with you everywhere you go!”

NENA Tip: Try our Mineral Serum that combines the nourishing effects of Glacial Mineral Water, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin C and E.

Vanessa Choot - @ModernmixVan

Vanessa Choot

From: Vancouver, BC

Skin Type: Normal to dry

Skincare Tip: “Always go to bed with clean skin. The two things I do daily for my skin are to cleanse and moisturize. I’ve been putting on moisturizer every day since I was a kid — everything else is a bonus! Also, if you’re spending the day at home, don’t wear makeup and give your skin a chance to breathe.”

NENA Tip: Try our Moisturizing Cream to help restore skin elasticity and firmness, hydrate and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.

Lara - @SkincareWithLara


: Toronto, ON

Skin Type: Dry

Skincare Tip: “One of my favourite skincare tips is to use a face mist before and after your hyaluronic serum or toner for extra hydration.”

Nermisa Omerovic - @Nermisa.O

Nermisa Omerovic

From: Edmonton, AB

Skin Type: Sensitive/combination

Skincare Tip: “My skin is very sensitive and prone to breakouts. The best skincare tip I have is to drink lots of water, always wash your face and moisturize before bed. A good face mask also makes all the difference if you have sensitive skin and I recommend doing it at least once a week. A clarifying and deep cleaning mask takes away all the impurities and helps prevent future breakouts.”

NENA Tip: Try our Glacial Oceanic Clay Mask for a purifying and softening mask made with 99% natural glacial oceanic clay, which is clinically proven to tighten pores, increase collagen production (anti-ageing benefits), reduce and excess oils.

Jayne Lim - @CosmeticProof

Jayne Lim

From: Vancouver, BC

Skin Type: Normal/dry

Skincare Tip: “Don’t be afraid of serums! Incorporate them once you hit your 20s because that’s where the good stuff is.”

NENA Tip: Try our Mineral Serum to give your skin deep, lasting hydration, and to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Christa Maria - @Christa.Maria

Christa Maria
