Being both busy and beautiful takes discipline and work. Supermodel-turned beauty queen-turned actress Marina Benipayo shares her regimen for lasting beauty.

“I maintain basic hygiene and skin care practices, which can in any way, help me maintain my skin and body,” Benipayo said. “Regular exercise and a balanced diet are always the best way to keep healthy.”

Models need to wear makeup on the job and that’s a fact. So skincare takes center stage, Benipayo noted. “The times when I have to wear makeup, cleansing and maintaining good skin can be a challenge. So, after cleansing, I apply Up&Up to make sure my skin recovers well.”

And while many of the uninitiated may think that a ‘party-harder’ lifestyle is part and parcel of a model’s daily bread, Benipayo swears by getting enough sleep and relaxation: “I also make sure I get some rest in between schedules. Although, I also do the housework, I try my best to manage my time so I won’t feel too tired. It also helps that I see what good I can get from anything I do, for me to feel less tired.”

Benipayo also shared her Up&Up experience, saying “it definitely felt like it was starting to treat my face to an avalanche of vitamins to instantly improve. By the second week, I noticed my face was clearer and younger-looking.”

“I appreciate the promise that Up&Up gives to women my age,” Benipayo said. “It gives us the hope that despite the busy schedule we have, there’s a product which will help us prevent or at least, keep at bay the onset of the signs of aging.”

“I think Up&Up will give its competitors a run for their money,” she added. “It’s an effective product, very suitable for Asian skin, and it causes absolutely no downtime at all. I can use it at any time of the day – in the morning, in evening, before I put on makeup. It’s an instant vitamin treatment for the face.”

“Staying beautiful doesn’t only entail good skin care and the right amount of physical activity,” Benipayo adds as a parting shot. “Bad stress and negative thinking can also cause us to look older than our age. So, along with caring for our bodies, we should also learn to manage our time, stress levels and behavior.”
