Choose health and #GetActive with Watsons
As beauty girls, we put a lot of effort into caring for ourselves. We apply sunscreen daily, make sure to take off our makeup properly, and even do our best to educate ourselves about the ingredients that goes into the products we use. But how well do we take care of the rest of our bodies?
It's honestly a little unnerving to realize that you've been more consistent with your skin care routine than taking steps to keep yourself fit. Research conducted by Watsons Insights on Shopper Experience shows that 66% of Filipinos are familiar with good health practices, including the importance of regular exercise. Despite this knowledge, 57% still don't get enough physical activity.
Even though we associate Watsons as our go-to happy place for great beauty finds, their #GetActive campaign brings an important and timely reminder for us to take a more holistic approach in caring for ourselves. You don't need to be someone who does yoga in the morning, eats a calorie-controlled veggie meal for lunch, and hits the gym after work to be healthy. It's an admirable lifestyle but it isn't for everyone, so what's important is to develop small but effective habits that can go a long way to improving the quality of your health.
Drink more water instead of consuming sugary drinks, use the stairs if you're just a few flights away, do a few minutes of meditation when you're stressed, and take vitamins to supplement your diet. While the latter is most important for ensuring we're getting enough of the nutrients we need to stay healthy and avoid getting sick, some vitamins also contribute to having better skin. Now, isn't that a win-win situation?
Choosing a healthier lifestyle doesn't have to be expensive, and you can easily do it when you go for your next Watsons beauty run. Take advantage of the limited time promo and get up to 20% off on select vitamins when you buy them at Watsons. And if you are an SM Advantage Card holder, make sure to present it at the counter to qualify for a raffle that can win you a trip to Bali, Guam, or Sydney.
