Kris Bernal has a lot on her plate she barely has time to worry about skin care.
Not for her the painstaking routine of creaming the face to moisturize.
She said, "Di ako mahilig, nalalagkitan ako."
The Kapuso actress went on to say she does not have a beauty secret to share.
"Hindi ako maarte pagdating sa skin ko. Good thing, my skin is not that sensitive," Kris told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the launch of Faces & Curves, the skin-care clinic that she endorses, last July 31, 2019.
In fact, she has only four beauty staples.
She vlogged about them on YouTube, where she showed the contents of her beauty bag: a balm, an Off lotion because she gets itchy from insect bites, and two kinds of vitamins that she brings wherever she goes.
According to Kris, she takes "orals" for her skin health plus Glutathione capsules every day.
The capsules, the Japanese brand Tatio Active Dx Glutathione, are available online and cost PHP2,500 for 60 softgels.
The actress told PEP.ph, "It has ano na rin, sunblock."
And weekly, she gets a Gluta drip or intravenous Glutathione.
For her makeup, Kris uses her own brand, She Cosmetics.
She launched her own makeup line ln December 2018, and she hopes to produce a new line in the near future.
Kris said, "...gusto ko na mag-produce ng new products, pero since tight yung budget ko, gusto ko ubusin lahat ng lipsticks para may pero ako to produce."
She does not have investors in her business, which slows her plan of expanding her makeup line.
She explained to PEP.ph, "Ngayon, parang lahat ng expenses galing sa akin, e, every peso nailalabas ko sa business ko, galing sa akin.
"Ang hirap na magpro-produce na ako ng new product na hindi ko pa nauubos yung lipsticks."
And to increase her sales, Kris herself sells lipsticks wherever she goes.
The petite actress always brings a pouch, which the actress said doubles as her "cashier."
In one of her YouTube vlogs, the StarStruck alumna exclaimed, "May tindahan sa loob ng bag ko. Nakakaloka..."
With her diligence, Kris has taken steps to reach her goal of introducing 100 shades in five years.
She said, "Mayroon na ako, may gusto na ako, na-formulate ko na, inaral ko na siya, kulang na lang talaga, wala akong budget, dahan-dahan!"
In the meantime, she has been saving and managing her finances wisely.
Kris said, "Feel ko, feel ko lang talaga, yung mga tao, iniisip nila kapag artista ka, you have so much money, they wanna take advantage.
"Pero kasi ako, smart ako, e, di naman smart na matalino, pero di mo ako maloloko sa pera kasi sa sobrang tight ko sa pera, marami na akong napagdaanan."
