Beauty Hacks by Alex Gonzaga

Wazzup Pilipinas!

We all know that maintaining a clear and radiant skin requires a lot of work and discipline. Not everyone is blessed of having beautiful skin and those that have are also burdened with keeping their skin flawless, without blemish and acne-free. 

However, there is still hope for everyone, whether you were born with good genes or not, as long as you strictly follow a maintenance routine using the right products appropriate for skin care. Here are some skin maintenance tips by Proactiv’s newest celebrity endorser from the Philippines, Alex Gonzaga.

As an actress, comedienne and TV host, it is part of Alex Gonzaga’s job to take good care of herself, especially her skin. Keeping her skin beautiful is among her assets to remain attractive to her fans and sponsors. Being on the limelight, her face has to be camera-ready at all times.

It is not enough to have beauty or skin care products. The 27-year old knows she needs to keep an eye on her overall lifestyle to do this. From what she eats to what she does off-cam, Alex walks us through her hacks to acne-free skin: 

1. A good night’s sleep is key

“Sleep helps the skin recover after a long tiring day so I make sure I get enough rest every night,” she explains.

Stress causes sebaceous glands produce more oil and make skin extra oily leading to formation of acne. Getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night has been proven reduce one’s stress level.

2. I chug lots of water

Increasing the amount of water you drink is a great way to flush out internal toxins and hydrate your skin from the inside out.

Alex shares she always keeps a bottle of water on standby to keep her hydrated during long hours of shoot.

3. Exercise is good for blood circulation

Physical activity cuts stress which may contribute to acne. Improved blood circulation helps the skin by sending more oxygen to your skin cells and carrying the cell wastes away.

“I do pilates regularly. It is fun and a great way to relieve stress,” Alex adds.

4. Sleeping with makeup on is a big no-no

No matter how tired she is after a long day at the set, Alex religiously takes time to remove all traces of makeup from her face to make sure her pores are not clogged with sweat, dust, and dirt.

5. Invest in over-the-counter product

“Proactiv has always been part of my beauty regimen for six years. Its specially-formulated ingredients help treat and prevent acne so I won’t have to deal with it,” Alex shares.

Alex swears by Proactiv, the leading anti-acne treatment product which is safe and effective for almost everyone.

Composed of the complete 3-Step System to knock out acne, Proactiv is very easy to use. Step 1 is the Renewing Cleanser, an oil-free, soap-free medicated exfoliating cleanser that kills acne-causing bacteria with U.S. prescription-grade benzoyl peroxide. Step 2 is the Revitalizing Toner, a refreshing alcohol-free toner that refines and purifies pores. Step 3 is the Repairing Treatment, a feather-light, invisible medicated treatment that kills acne-causing bacteria.

Every Proactiv kit comes with a free Proactiv Refining Mask, a rich, deep-cleansing mask formulated with sulfur, a proven acne- fighting ingredient that reaches deep into the pores where blemishes begin.

“Proactiv requires less than five minutes a day. It’s convenient and it works,” shares Alex.

Take it from the celebrity. These beauty hacks are your sure way to a smooth and acne-free skin just like Alex’s.

In my case, I don't settle for anything less than Proactiv to support my daily skin maintenance routine. There may be less expensive skin care products out there but none are as effective as Proactiv skin care solutions. 

As a blogger, I get several beauty products and skin care for free but none has yet met the same effectiveness of Proactiv. I share the usage with my daughter who also has to deal with her acne problems. Even after taking a bath, and using several other skin care products, our skin could never be really clean. None could ever replace the effectivity of using Proactiv.
