In this Hotspot interview, Shaina shared simple tips for keeping a fresh, youthful glow, sans complicated skincare routine. Her secrets are as simple as adequate sleep (8 to 10 hours), removing her makeup before going to bed, and eating healthy.
“Naniniwala ako na whatever it is that you put inside the body, lalabas talaga sa katawan mo ‘yun. Four years na akong hindi nagme-meat. I drink pure celery juice first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. I never sleep with make-up on kasi magco-clog ang pores mo. Kapag medyo puffy ka in the morning, yelo kasi parang massage din ‘yun,” she revealed.
But her holy grail would have to be essential oils. Shaina’s health condition called hypothyroidism convinced her to go all-natural when it comes to taking care of her skin and body, thus launching her own line of wellness products, “Lunas Living Oils.”
DJ Jhai Ho would vouch for the relaxing, soothing effects of Shaina’s essential oils. Among their favorites are the thermal oil, which Shaina sprays on her skin after bath, and pillow spray that promises relaxing and better sleep. The Kapamilya beauty said it’s important to choose organic products for the skin as it can be easily absorbed by the bloodstream.
Also due to hypothyroidism, Shaina experienced severe breakout, which is why she knows exactly how much it affects the self-esteem.
“Na-feel ko ‘yan! Parang all my life, clear ‘yung skin ko. Pero noong nagkaroon ako ng hormonal imbalance, grabe talaga to the point na nagrereklamo na ‘yung mga lighting director ko sa shows kasi hindi na nila matakpan at madaya sa ilaw. You really have to seek professional help. Go to your trusted dermatologist,” she told those going through the same experience.
To those who feel less confident because of breakouts, Shaina advised, “In reality, ‘yung iba na hindi naman napapansin ‘yun. Baka the more you cover it up, mai-irritate and maa-awkward ‘yung kausap mo, eh ‘di mas mahahalata pa. In a way, siguro ang physical beauty pero at the end of the day, mas importante ang inner beauty.”
