How to look like a beauty queen

The ageless Gloria Diaz tells us her beauty regimen to maintain that Miss Universe look. She believes in the old adage that “you are as old as you look and feel, you are the age you are.”

 

Miss Universe 1969 Gloria Diaz has retained that Miss Universe look after all these years. She conducts herself with flair and elan.

Gloria believes in the old adage that “you are as old as you look and feel, you are the age you are.” What keeps her radiant is maintaining a lifestyle of moderation, meaning, not too much alcohol, not too much late night-outs, and adhering to the saying, “early to bed, early to rise.”

Just like other figure-conscious women, she stays fit by engaging in constant exercise and watching her diet. Every day she goes to the gym to flex some muscles and from time to time undergo a massage treatment to lessen the pain and stiffness of her body.

She doesn’t really follow any special diet, although she chooses to eat more fruits and vegetables. “Quite often, I also eat junk foods,” she admitted from the previous interview. She takes care of her hair by using fewer chemicals like hair spray and other similar stuff.

One of her stunning assets is her almost flawless skin. She scrubs her body with a loofah (a rough sponge) and sometimes had it done in the parlor. Then she applies lotion to her skin. But most importantly, she says, is to take lots of vitamins and calcium.

For her face, she makes sure that it’s clean before she goes to bed. “I only use heavy makeup when I’m shooting or taping. You can’t help that. Otherwise, I just apply a little bit of eye makeup and lipstick,” she tells.

“It was worth a try,” she says of her experience in winning a Miss Universe title. “You must enter into it with an open mind that it’s not the be-all and end-all if you win or not win. Life goes on, and there can only be one winner. Fortunately, I came out on top.”

Doing Good for the Oceans

As part of its Sustainability Program, Watsons Philippines has entered a collaboration with Plastic Bank to help reduce plastic pollution and alleviate poverty by creating livelihood.

Plastic waste is a big problem for the environment and humanity in general: Every minute, one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into the ocean. If this continues unabated, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans in 30 years. Sadly, the Philippines is one of the top 3 contributors to this plastic problem.

Sustainability has always been part of the Watsons DNA. Recognizing that the ocean stores a quarter of CO2 from the atmosphere and up to 93.4% of heat caused by the greenhouse effect, Watsons is committed to reducing the overall impact of its own brand plastic packaging so that it may contribute to ocean protection.

The A.S. Watsons Group has banned the use of microplastics in its own brand of rinse-off cosmetics or personal care products since 2014. By the end of 2019, this ban has been extended to all brands so no rinse-off cosmetics or personal care products from any brand are sold at any Watsons stores.

Watsons Philippines offers its customers four Sustainable Choices: Clean Beauty (mindfully created products without “unwanted” ingredients), Refill and Reduce (refilling bottles and reusing containers), Better Ingredients, and Better Packaging.

Through its Impact Program Collaboration with Plastic Bank, the health, wellness, and beauty retailer will continue to Do Good for the Oceans by committing to the prevention of 50,000 kg of plastic bottles from entering the world’s oceans – the equivalent of 2.5 million bottles over the first 12 months.

“At the heart of Look Good, Feel Great is Do Good. Watsons has always been at the forefront of sustainability and this collaboration with Plastic Bank only further reinforces our commitment to helping make this world a better place,” said Viki Encarnacion, Watsons PR and Sustainability Director.

Plastic Bank Philippines

“We are happy to team up with Watsons Philippines – a company that shares our vision on creating a regenerative economy. This collaboration showcases our unified goal of stopping ocean plastic while creating more opportunities for people living in vulnerable coastal communities,” said David Katz, Founder, and CEO of Plastic Bank.

Haircare routines the vegan way!

Hair has an attitude and identity.  It tells a powerful story about who you are. This is why it’s so important to keep it in root-to-tip shape. Luckily The Body Shop’s new vegan haircare routines are here to help your hair look and feel as powerful as you, so you can keep telling your story, your way.

They contain no harmful chemicals, and if you have sensitive skin they’re just perfect for you. And sustainable for you and the environment.

What makes The Body Shop’s new haircare routines so powerful is that they’re all made with Vegan Silk Protein, a 100% plant-based protein, which cleverly replicates the chemical structure of natural silk produced by the common European garden spider. But The Body Shop’s is fully plant-based –  and ALL The Body Shop’s haircare is now registered by the Vegan Society, so, no spiders or silkworms were harmed, used, or disturbed to obtain it.  Plus, all haircare is now made with (at least!) 90% ingredients of natural origin.

The trauma of scars and finding a homecare solution

Advance your skincare regimen with these LANBENA essentials on Shopee’s 8.8 Mega Flash Sale!

The presence of scars in our skin is definitely not a pretty sight. It left you a certain trauma of the incident that caused it. As a matter of fact, I have a personal trauma of scars. After I gave birth to my daughter 17 years ago, I was faced with and am still facing a dilemma on how to eliminate the unwanted and unsightly postoperative scars and stretch marks from my cesarean delivery. I have tried some products but to no avail (although the marks have lightened as time goes by).

My beauty companion to glowing skin

The Essence of Cleopatra Aromatherapy Youth Serum with Argan Oil is an exceptional facial oil containing superior botanical ingredients that help to reduce wrinkles and rejuvenates the face and neck. With this anti-aging solution, you’re never too old to become younger.

Sometime last year, I was introduced by a long-time lady friend to this essential oil product which originated from Calgary, Alberta Canada. Before this, I have been trying some products that will be suitable for my combination and sensitive skin.

I would use some of them for a couple of days but after that, I would experience some redness and rashes, which prompted me to totally stopped using them. I would surmise that I don’t really need those harmful products; what I only need is something that is natural, safe, and effective.

In short, I tried the product called Essence of Cleopatra Aromatherapy Youth Serum with Argan Oil. I was attracted by its packaging and the ingredients are made of essential oils. After 3-5 days of applying it to my face and neck at night, I noticed that my skin became moisturized, the dryness disappeared, my blemishes diminished. I’m happy and satisfied with the effect that it has brought to my skin.

Since then, I keep on using the Youth Serum. It’s the only one I’m using now coupled with once a month facial. It’s a truly exceptional facial oil containing superior botanical ingredients that help to reduce wrinkles and rejuvenates the face and neck. I have found my skin companion to glowing skin. Now, I can wear less makeup and let my skin shine through.

Anti-Aging Solution

Youth Serum with Argan Oil has more than 10 ingredients available in a 30 ml. amber glass dropper bottle. It is regarded as an anti-aging solution from Canada, now available in the Philippines through Essence of Cleopatra Aromatherapy.

It has a line of Essential Oils, tinctures, and blends, which combines the ancient tradition of plant-based healing with modern-day aromatherapy and medical knowledge.

Lovely couple Judith and Lloyd Barran from Canada.

The brains behind this fascinating line of products are lovely couple Judith and Lloyd Barran from Canada. Both Judith and Lloyd became certified in Aromatherapy in 1999. In addition, Lloyd has been a practicing pharmacist and chemist for over three decades now.

Why Youth Serum with Argan Oil works so well? This product has over 10 ingredients of Essential Oils and Carrier Oils — specially chosen to rejuvenate, moisturize, heal, and completely nourish the skin.

 

The Carrier Oils (Hazelnut, Kukui Nut, Evening Primrose, Argan, etc.) not only moisturize the skin but supply all the vitamins and nutrients required for complete skin health and for the formation of new skin cells. As well, these Oils are very light and are rapidly absorbed into the skin, which permits the application of your makeup within 5 minutes of use.

The Essential Oils (Jasmin, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Ylang Ylang, etc.) penetrate to the innermost layer of the skin and speed up the formation of new skin cells, which cause old skin cells to be shed more rapidly and be replaced by new skin, thereby reducing fine lines and wrinkles. This effect can be noticed as early as 3 to 5 days.

To use it, place a few drops on fingertips and gently massage into face and neck at night using circular motions. Even when applied regularly, the Youth Serum with Argan Oil can last up to 3 months.

With this anti-aging solution, you’re never too old to become younger.
