Beauty advice from Pia Wurtzbach, Charo Santos-Concio, & Janella Salvador
One experience that we all probably share is a phase of figuring out and learning to accept ourselves for who we are. It’s been a more than a few years but I still recall struggling with how I could be beautiful amid all the insecurities and issues that came with puberty. Because of teenage acne, I couldn’t recognize the person that stared back at me in the mirror. While my love for makeup and how it can help empower me came a bit later, I realized early on that one sure way to move forward is to keep fighting our self-doubts, including those that stemmed from having less than stellar skin. Lucky for us, brands like Olay has solutions for our skin woes - no matter our age.
You may have seen the original pink Oil of Olay beauty fluid in your lola’s dresser. Yes, Olay has been researching and improving on their products for that long! What started out as our lola’s fountain of youth has since been developed into Olay Total Effects with its “7 youthful benefits in a single bottle.” And the ambassador for this miracle worker is none other than Miss Universe herself, Pia Alonzo-Wurtzbach.
Pia’s is an incredibly inspiring success story of repeat entries and runner-up status before finally being crowned Miss Universe 2015. She’s one gorgeous reminder that we should never give up! She continues to inspire us with the work that she does as Miss Universe, which she admits is a 24/7 responsibility. She says that you shouldn't give up on your dream, even when it seems impossible, because one day you just might be wearing that crown.
She credits Olay in helping her maintain her radiant skin even through frequent work-related travel and seemingly endless shoots. Fortunately, you don’t need to be a beauty queen to afford Pia’s favorite moisturizer. The Olay Total Effects Day Cream is a budget-friendly moisturizer at just P389, plus it has SPF15 for additional protection.
For more mature women, Olay Regenerist became the answer for effective anti-aging skin care that doesn’t hurt the budget. The line is endorsed by ABS-CBN's Charo Santos-Concio, who shows no signs of slowing down. She began her career with making movies, went up the ranks to become a top corporate executive, and she’s now back to her first love: acting. For a woman like her who’s keen on “living life to the fullest”, retirement is far from being an option. She shares that when you are open to experiencing new things, you become the best version of who you are. Her zest for life definitely keeps her young (and we can attest to how effective Olay Regenerist products are).
The lovely Janella Salvador headlines the campaign for Olay White Radiance. Teenage skin has that fresh and smooth look, and it’s important to take care of the skin’s natural glow even with their busy lifestyles. Olay’s "Science in Every Jar" addresses these needs. White Radiance helps Janella as she grows in her craft and moves from supporting roles to becoming a leading lady. The young actress shares that she’s very excited to join the ranks of Olay ambassadors, considering that the other endorsers are all big names in the industry. She advises young women like herself is to take care of their skin and reminds them that the best version of yourself that you can be is, at the end of the day, only you.
Olay truly advocates only the best for the Filipina beauty, and they’ve spent the past 10 years in the Philippines inspiring and helping Pinays to be their #BestBeautiful. As Pia shares, it was a challenge for her to get to where she is today but she preaches that you shouldn’t give up on your dreams. By holding on to them and by being yourself, you’ll start to glow and that is when the universe will open its doors to you.
