Thea Tolentino admitted she's not that meticulous as far as her beauty routine is concerned.
At the recent #MeTime event of Watsons, she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Hindi pa ako yung super conscious.
"I know kailangan sa trabaho namin kasi you're always seen on TV, pero hindi ko pa siya priority.
"Ang alam ko lang, may tendency na maging dry ang skin ko, so I use moisturizer."
The Kapuso actress said she's presently using Japanese and Korean brands.
"Pero hindi siya yung step by by step, ha, na ang daming products.
"Actually, minsan nga hilamos lang talaga ako. As in wash my face with cleanser. Ganun lang.
"Then I listen to the makeup artists, and nagpapahanap, nagpapabili ako sa Japan.
"Nagta-try-try lang ako, pag okay, I use it."
It would usually take her two to four weeks before she gives a certain product her verdict.
"Trial and error kung minsan, if mag-work, siya gagamitin ko. I give it a month na ita-try ko, then I will check the effects."
DOS AND DONT'S
Thea has a pretty simple beauty routine, but she has two important items under do's and don'ts.
The first is sleep.
"Matulog ka nang tama sa oras at tamang oras. Kaya kapag may window talaga to sleep, kahit idlip, gagawin ko.
"Kahit pa naka-makeup ka o mamahalin ang beauty products na ginagamit mo, kung wala kang tulog, mahahalata sa skin mo ang effects—dry, magaspang, minsan oily, lumalabas ang mga pimples, di ba."
PEP.ph asked: Is that the reason she doesn't have eye bags and dark circles?
"Yes. Wala po akong ginagamit. Tulog lang talaga and gaganda yung skin mo, hindi magda-dry at magkaka-wrinkles."
And what's under her don'ts?
"Huwag kang mai-stress. Avoid anything that causes stress. Hindi lang siya sa balat may effect, kahit sa health.
"Kaya if you can have more sleep at less stress, okay na okay na ang beauty routine mo," she ended.
