Alexa Ilacad was spotted checking out some of the 200 local and global brands found at The SM Store Beauty Section in SM Makati. When asked about her must-have makeup product, she replied, "Lip and cheek tint."

As she makes her transition from adolescence to womanhood, Alexa Ilacad makes a few changes on her lifestyle.

Her pole dancing cannot be considered a serious fitness routine yet, but the 17-year-old star recently started doing it again after three of years of stopping.

At the Glam Session event of SM Beauty Section in SM Makati, she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and ABS-CBN reporters, “Naku fitness [routine], parang wala pa…

“I got back to pole dancing.

“I used to do that because I stopped for three years, and yun yung workout ko.”

But it’s not yet a regular part of her schedule.

“Super sometimes pag nagawa akong i-convince ni mommy,” who is her dancing buddy.

Dieting is what she wants to take a bit more seriously.

Alexa continued, “Actually, recently, I took this food intolerance diet.

“Very specific, they got my blood, it’s different from the blood type, so I found out which works for me.


"Hindi man siya super halata pero medyo mahirap kasi ako mag-lose ng weight.

“Slowly but surely.”

How many pounds has she lost so far?

“Actually, I don’t have goal. I don't care [about] the count.

“I just need to see it.

"I'm building muscle so I may be heavier than I look, so yun yung mas important sa akin.”

BEAUTY ROUTINE. The screen partner of Nash Aguas is a low-maintenance gal, describing her glam look as “super simple, fresh.”

She added, “Yung pinaka-glam ko is with the eyeliner, but usually, cheek tint lang talaga ako.”

How about her beauty regimen, does she already have one?

“When I have pimples, I use Pond’s, but other than that…I don’t any soap on my face.

“To be honest, I don’t have any, I don’t use any soap.”

What does she use?

“Hilamos ako, water lang talaga.

“Kasi I found out that the more soap or chemical na I use, the more it irritates yung face ko kesa sa wala lang.”


Again, with “wala lang,” she meant, “Zero, clean, free, tubig lang.”
