She recommends investing in a good facial wash and toner. And, of course, to drink lots of water to stay hydrated. It will benefit your skin in the long run.

For "biglaan events naman," Cristalle suggests using the Acne Pro Pimple Gel to pop that pimple.

She assures, "Overnight mag-da-dry na yung pimple."

COLGATE SUGARACID NEUTRALIZER. With all the candies and pastries in abundance during the holiday, your dentals are at risk for possible tooth decay if you don’t brush those pearly whites properly!

Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan reminds, "Oral health is something very important for me, this is something I learned from my mom.

"Very early on she always wanted us to brush our teeth, take care of our teeth and, you know, it paid off.

"So I wanna pass this on to my children. But, of course we have cheat days, and that’s Sundays. They can eat all the sweets that they want but they have to brush their teeth."

The shop caters to tall hunks and plus-sized men. Endorsed by San Juan Vice Mayor Francis Zamora, the former DLSU team captain and fitness advocate also gives fashion advice to all guys "on the bigger side."

"It doesn't have to be something negative if you're tall and big, fashion is from within. Ako ay naniniwala na yung pagbihis ay parang outlet ng iyong personality.

"So hindi dahilan na malaki, mataba, or matangkad, hindi ibig sabihin hindi ka pwede magbihis ng maayos. Marami namang paraan kung paano natin i-express ang personality sa paraan ng ating pananamit."

He adds that Ultimo caters to all types of occasions, ranging from formal, casual, or sporty wear.

Ultimo showcased their latest Holiday collection for the big guys last October 23 at the Bar One Holiday Inn.
