Craig, Social Video Editor

What parts of your daily routine make you feel good?

My style reflects my mood and I like dressing accordingly. Fashion makes me feel confident, because when I look good, I feel good and when I feel good, I’m happy. I love being unique, so I often DIY my clothes to put my own spin on my wardrobe.

As a creative there’s nothing more I love than going wild in the kitchen and searching the pantry for ingredients I can throw together to make a great dish.

Can you explain what beauty means to you?

Beauty is subjective, different cultures and different people have contrasting views on beauty ideals. Look how you want to look, be who you want to be and love yourself.

Was there a time you didnt’t feel good about yourself? What has changed?

There has been times when people have called me too skinny, too dark or too feminine and that did knock my confidence.

As I grew older and came out, my style and confidence developed and I learnt the art of not caring about others opinions. Their negativity is a reflection of their own insecurities.

What Myvitamins products do you use and why?

Every morning I take my Hair, Skin & Nails Capsules, Alpha Men and Gut Gummies. The Hair, Skin & Nails Capsules give me a glow and make my skin feel so much softer and Alpha Men helps me with an extra boost of vitamins. Having these as part of my daily routine makes me feel great from the inside, which radiates to the outside.

What does *Skincredible mean to you?

Feeling happy & confident in my own skin. 

Can you tell us about a time when you didn’t feel confident?

Definitely after having my babies my confidence took a huge knock, especially the first time around. I didn’t look or feel the same and sometimes the social media pressure of bouncing back and fitting into your pre-pregnancy jeans in weeks can be just too much. It’s important to remember that no one is perfect, no one is truly happy with 100% of what they see in the mirror. Give yourself some grace and be kind to yourself always. 

How do you get motivated for each day?

Motivation is so tricky because it comes and goes, and you can’t always rely on it. Some days I’m super motivated and some days I have zero motivation. That’s when I rely on routine and discipline. Setting a routine and sticking to it definitely makes a difference. 

How do supplements fit into your daily routine?

They’re a vital part of my day. I take them in both the morning and evening. I leave them in eyesight in the kitchen so I don’t forget, but to be honest I never do forget because they’re that important to me. I especially love the Gummies and Coconut & Collagen!

Do you agree that “beauty is about feeling good in your own skin?”

To a certain extent I do agree, but overall I feel that beauty is about what’s inside. I do feel that I probably am slightly more confident when I feel good about my skin, but I know that I feel my very best when I’m looking after myself both mentally and physically. This involves fuelling my body correctly with the right nutrients and vitamins, exercising, goal setting and prioritising sleep.

Tell us about your Myvitamins favourites

I love the Multivitamin Gummies. Very much into looking after myself from the inside out and because I don’t eat meat or fish I’m conscious to ensure that I am getting the correct nutrients into my body.

When do you feel the most beautiful?

I feel the most beautiful when I’m surrounded with the people that I love. When i’m in a positive environment, when there’s no pressure or expectations to be someone that you’re not and when you’re just having fun.

What are your favourite things about yourself?

I like that I’m quite a positive person and always look for the good things in everything. Even if I’m in a bit of a rubbish situation I try and think of the silver lining. I try to find joy in the little moments and love reflecting on my day, staying grateful for even the little things.

When do you feel the most beautiful?

I feel the most beautiful when I’m around people I love and people that love me. Being surrounded by energy that makes you feel comfortable and confident in who you are is unmatched.

What are your favourite parts of yourself – both inside and out?

My favourite parts of myself:

Inside, I’d say my kindness and patience. My mother always taught me to be kind no matter how someone else might act, that my kindness shouldn’t be dictated by others and instead should be an unwavering part of who I am. This is my favourite part of myself because I believe the world needs more kindness and we never really know how vast the impact of a small act of genuine kindness can go.

Outside, my favourite part of myself is my eyes, they’re often the first feature that is complimented and to me they add a lot of depth and character.

What supplements do you use and why?

I use the Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies as well as the Collagen Shots for the maintenance of my physical self in terms of skin etc.

I also take Zinc & Magnesium and Joint to aid with my recovery as I train quite intensely five times a week.
