The secret to Barbie Forteza's youthful glow? She maintains a 10-step skin-care routine.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Barbie admits that she got inspired by the Korean stars' poreless and dewy look, aka "glass skin," and it is, by far, the best skin-care routine there is.
"Uso ngayon yung glass skin, di ba? Yung mga Korean skin care.
"Yun, bukod sa nagpapaganda siya, nagha-hydrate siya ng face mo, nagbibigay siya ng glow na parang Korean."
She adds, "Parang sinabi mong makinis, Korean agad, di ba? Parang, 'Ang ganda ng balat mo, kutis Koreana!'
"Yung ganun agad, yun yung image na mai-imagine mo.
"So para sa akin, malaking influence talaga ang K-beauty pagdating sa skin care."
PEP.ph's quick interview with Barbie is held at the launch of a nail polish brand in One Rockwell, Makati City.
On October 22, Barbie demonstrates her nighttime skin-care routine through her latest vlog, and reveals the products she has been using to maintain her flawless skin.
Step 1: Remove your makeup
The Kapuso actress erases her eye and lip makeup first using Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips.
She takes a pea-sized amount of Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm to remove her foundation and other face makeup.
Barbie rubs the cleansing balm between her hands first to warm it up before putting it on her face.
She then wipes it off using Clinique Take The Day Off Miscellar Cleansing Towelettes.
These are available for PHP1,500, PHP1,950, and PHP1,050, respectively, in department stores.
Step 2: Double cleanse
Barbie double cleanses by washing her face while in the shower.
She skips mentioning the product that she uses, but you can try the Dear Klairs Rich Moist Foaming Cleanser.
It comes with a price tag of PHP940 at Beauty Bar in Glorietta 2, Makati City.
Step 3: Apply toner
Barbie uses a pore-minimizing toner especially formulated for her.
For those looking for an option, try Kiehl's Ultra Facial Toner, which can help gently remove dirt and other residue on your face.
Step 4: Moisturize
Barbie never forgets to moisturize her face and neck using Neutrogena Hydro Boost Essence.
This is available at Watson's Online for PHP1,072.
Step 5: Massage your face
Barbie massages her face using a rose quartz roller, which helps distribute the vitamins from serums and moisturizers all over her face.
Regular use of jade and rose quartz rollers also helps tone and increase the blood flow on your face.
Her rose quartz roller costs PHP2,250 via Veste Roller on Instagram.
Step 6: De-puff your eye bags
Barbie applies Clinique All About Eyes Serum under her eyes three times to de-puff her eye bags.
This is available for PHP2,300 at Rustan's The Beauty Source in Shangri-La Plaza.
Step 7: Apply eyelash and eyebrow serum
Barbie also takes good care of her lashes. After her eye bags serum, she uses Instalush Eyelash and Eyebrow Serum, which helps her lashes and eyebrows grow healthier and fuller.
Step 8: Condition your lashes
Instalush Eyelash Nourishing Mascara, according to the brand's Instagram account, provides "strength and nourishment for fuller lashes."
Both the Instalush Eyelash and Eyebrow Serum and Instalush Nourishing Mascara come with a price tag of PHP2,200 each at Strokes by Momoi Supe in Greenbelt 1, Makati City.
Step 9: Apply face oil for "glass skin"
Barbie fell in love with Miranda Kerr's skin care line called Kora Organics.
The former Meant To Be star says she uses a few drops of the brand's Noni Glow Face Oil.
She tells her vlog viewers, "Para sa mga nagtatanong kung paano ko na-achieve ang glass skin kinemerut, ito yun guys!"
The 30ml bottle of Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil comes with a price tag of PHP3,100 at Freyja in Glorietta 2, Makati City.
Step 10: Hydrate your lips
To end her nighttime skin-care routine, Barbie puts on Lucas' Papaw Ointment on her lips to prevent it from chapping and keep it moisturized.
This is available for PHP599 at beautymnl.com.
