MANILA – Aside from being hailed as one of the sexiest women in the country, Jessy Mendiola is also known for her porcelain skin.
The actress admitted that she has naturally dry skin, which she makes up for with a simple beauty hack – a face mist.
“I make sure that I drink lots of water tapos throughout the day, may dala ako parating face mist,” she told ABS-CBN News on the sidelines of the launch of her newest endorsement, SkinCell aesthetic clinic.
“Kasi medyo mainit dito sa atin, di ba? So what I do is kapag medyo mainit or malagkit, nagse-spray ako tapos I dab tissue on my face. Dapat hindi kaskas kasi nai-irritate ‘yung skin,” she added.
Mendiola went on to share her skin care routine which involves applying sunscreen in the morning and ending the day with zero makeup and some moisturizer.
“Even ‘yung sa mata, ‘yung eyeliner and mascara, you have to take them all off. Take everything off. Make sure you have a good makeup remover kasi marami na ring makeup removers na nakaka-irritate ng skin, so dapat 'yung hypoallergenic,” she said.
“Ako kasi I have very dry skin, so what I do is bumibili ako ng makeup remover na may halong water and oil, ‘yung water-based, para mas madaling matanggal.”
Meanwhile, Mendiola said she also swears by the benefits of exercise, saying it makes her feel “most beautiful.”
“Kasi di ba pansin mo whenever you sweat parang lahat ng toxins mo sa body mo lumalabas? Kaya nagiging maganda ‘yung glow mo,” she said. “So ‘yun ‘yung nangyayari sa akin every time I work out.”
“When I have time I work out almost every day,” she continued. “I switch up my workouts – 'di lang din parating circuit, 'di lang din parating cardio. I mix everything and I also do fun workouts like pole dancing.”
And while she is afraid of undergoing beauty enhancements via surgery (“Takot ako sa injections, kahit sa ospital kinukuhanan lang ako ng dugo naiiyak na ako,” she said), she sees nothing wrong if other people will do it to make them feel better about themselves.
“You have to know what works for you, and you work on that,” she said.
