The topic of skincare these days can quickly become a complex matter. There are a plethora of products, steps, and ingredients, and it can get too overwhelming, especially for beginners. But you know what they say: less is more, and this is exactly what Herlene Budol, a.k.a "Hipon Girl," stands by.
At an event hosted by Ever Bilena and Binibining Pilipinas, Preview was able to ask the fresh-faced candidates all about their beauty queen-approved skincare secrets. Although their answers were definitely helpful and informative, Herlene kept her tips short and sweet. The 22-year-old beauty queen and social media personality shared this one easy and practical skincare tip that everybody needs to follow (and remember) every day.
When asked about the one skincare secret she learned from being a beauty queen, Herlene made a hilarious, no-brainer quip about the importance of daily hygiene. "Maligo ka lang," she said jokingly. "Kasi kailangan mo yun pang every day. Kahit hindi ka beauty queen kailangan mo siya every day."
Herlene also briefly discussed that beauty queens have extra steps in their routines in order to maintain their picture-perfect appearances. "May extrang mga ginagawa lang kami sa buhay namin na talagang pinag-aralan namin ng husto," she told Preview. This includes learning how to properly apply make-up to suit one's face.
Aside from remembering to do basic hygiene, like showering, brushing your teeth, you know the drill, Herlene added, "Vitamins, tubig... ganyan, inom ng marami." No wonder she always manages to look radiant!
