How to look even better as you age

Have you ever met your favorite celebrity for the first time and thought, “Bakit parang hindi siya tumatanda?” (Why doesn’t she age?)

While there are those who rely on the help of modern science (and surgery), some celebrities just seem to have been given the gift of eternal beauty and just keep getting better with age.

Alice Dixson, for example, was one of the most beautiful actresses of the ‘90s, yet even after two decades, Alice still looks as fresh as the first time we saw her in that famous “I Can Feel It” commercial.

For many, she is the epitome of the modern woman—someone who can juggle her responsibilities as an actress, without compromising her personal health and fitness.

So what is her secret? 

To look young, Alice says we need to go beyond having a beauty regimen.

“You use beauty products to enhance your beauty, but you also need to do other things that will be good to your body,” Alice told members of the press at the Watson’s Time To Renew event.  “What we need is a more holistic approach.”

To prevent wrinkles, the 48-year-old star, says it is important to have regular facials and laser-light treatments, but “preventive maintenance” is also important.

The former beauty queen added, “If there’s too much stress in your life, that can have an effect on your skin so it’s important to know how to avoid them.”

“I’m very stressed sa traffic so I don’t like to drive so much and I always pick the time there is less traffic.

“I’m the kind of person who does preventive maintenance, so if I know magiging stress ko iyan, hindi ko iyan papasukin.”

To relieve her stress Alice says she goes for regular massages and exercise. 

“Make sure to exercise everyday, the best time is before you shower and get ready for work, because when you get home from work in the evening, you’re gonna be too tired, 20 minutes can actually go a long way,” she elaborates.

Besides exercise, Alice also credited Kilo Off as the key to maintaining her figure.  

Kilo Off is a weight loss system from France with all-natural active ingredients. “Kilo Off helps me with certain cravings like if I need to lose weight for a photo shoot or I have a target of a certain weight for a fitness goal, I would take it daily and then my cravings will go away,” Alice notes.

‘Skintellectual’ solutions

Another celebrity who is regarded as one of the icons of beauty is Ruffa Gutierrez. The former Miss World princess was also among the resource speakers of the Watson’s Time To Renew campaign being Cosmoskin’s endorser.

“Like most women, I also had to deal with several issues like the occasional blemish that women are prone to have due to stress, hormonal changes and even pollution. But now, I can say that I don’t have those problems anymore since taking Cosmo Skin L- Glutathione daily and by imbibing Cosmo Skin Collagen Drink. They are ideal for achieving a fair and what we call “immaculate complexion” because of its special formulation, and for keeping my skin firm, elastic and youthful,” she shared.

Cosmo Skin provides consumer solution that are so effective and so convenient that you can’t help but rely on it when trying to find ways that would solve dull, sagging and dark skin.

Beauty by the numbers

Poor sleeping habits and failure to protect our skin from the sun and pollution also contribute to aging our skin faster.

Pond’s Beauty Council member, Iza Calzado, stated, “Just 10 minutes under the sun can trigger the toughest skin problems now. Daily commuting or exposure to huge amounts of pollution can also affect our skin and cause acne. Even our lifestyle choices right now as modern men and women which requires us living a 24/7 non-stop, on-the-go lifestyle, takes a toll on our skin. Not to mention are the stresses we encounter both at work and at home,” the ABS-CBN star said.

A 24/7 non-stop life can be stressful and tiring at times which can speed up the signs of aging and have an effect on our skin.

To protect the skin, Iza suggested The New Pond’s Age Miracle with Retinol C Complex. Retinol C Complex works 24 hours non-stop to help reduce wrinkles for a youthful glow. It also has SPF 18 PA++ that provides protection against UV rays and vitamin B3 and E3 to help strengthen the skin’s protective barrier and keep your skin looking fair and radiant. 

Time to renew

Watsons knows you’ve got so much on your plate that you forget to give yourselves some TLC. You’ve been juggling between work and play, trying to cover as much ground as possible that you tend to spread yourself too thin. And because of this, it is no surprise that you forget to take care of yourself that it eventually takes a toll on your overall well-being. 

“I’m sure that we are all aware of the effects our daily tasks and tight schedules have on our bodies. But knowing is far different from deciding to do something about it,” said Karen Fabres, Watsons Group Marketing manager.

Watsons Time to Renew campaign continues the brand’s holistic approach to beauty and wellness. 

“Getting back to the healthy, proactive lifestyle doesn’t have one fixed formula to be followed, so we held this fun event to help shoppers on how they can get back on the healthy track. Just remember these three things: Restore your Beauty, Recharge your Health and Revitalize your Hair!”

The campaign focused on three categories that most of people tend to set aside to accommodate their tight schedules— Restore your Beauty for proper skin care, Revitalize your hair to bring life back to dull tresses, and Recharge your Health for a more energized and healthier body. 

At Watsons, restoring your skin’s beauty is now made easy with products like Pond’s, Olay, L’Oreal, Belo, Celeteque, Neutrogena, Snow, St. Ive’s, Suave, Bellic, Glutamax, Shulammite soap, Cosmo Skin and Nivea Men crème. 

But more than our skin, it’s most often that we forget about protecting our hair. Our hair also needs intensive protection from the sun and heat styling products, especially those who love playing with their locks. Make it a point to revitalize your hair with hair loving products like Tresemme, L’Oreal, Dove and Moringa. 

Finally, it’s also very important to recharge your health to achieve the 100 percent you. With Watsons’ healthy solutions such as Cosmo Cee, Poten-Cee, Met Tathione, IVI Collagen, Myra E, Stresstabs, Belo Glutathione, Snow Caps and Kilo-off, you can have a healthier life and get in tip-top shape in no time.
