Bianca Manalo is unstoppable! Unlike other pageant winners who eventually fade away from the public eye, the Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2009 still shines in the limelight as she juggles acting, modeling, and TV hosting stints, all the while looking dazzling with her silky hair, winning smile, and traffic-stopping figure.
Earlier this year, Bianca was chosen as the first-ever Filipino endorser of world-class salon brand Matrix, which she claims was a very proud moment for her.
At her unveiling as the face of Matrix, we asked the former beauty queen about her no-fail fitness, fashion, and beauty do's. Listen up, ladies!
To maintain her skinny, svelte figure, Bianca hits the gym regularly, does Crossfit, and drinks lots of water and vitamins. She also doesn't eat meat, opting to take in a lot of fruits, vegetables, and fiber. "Kumakain pa naman ako ng bread, pero whole wheat dapat," she clarifies about her daily diet.
When it comes to beauty, Bianca always sees to it that she is well-rested. "And at the end of the day I make sure na tanggal na tanggal ang makeup ko." And when she doesn't have a shooting or an event to go to, this beauty likes to keep it natural, save for a bit of lip tint and lip gloss.
When asked how she maintains her beautifully straight locks, Bianca raved about her favorite Matrix products: OptiStraight, a safe, formaldehyde-free smooth rebonding system, "Para laging super straight ang buhok ko." She then takes care of her hair daily with Sensoria, an advanced hot oil hair care treatment.
Biance also encouraged Filipinas to be more adventurous with their hair color, which most Pinays like to keep black. Instead, Bianca recommends WonderBrown, a range of fashionable hair colorants, "Para sa tisay-tisay na look," she candidly enthused.
As for fashion, this statuesque star believes that to dress sexy like she does, you've got to couple it with a bold attitude. "If you feel sexy, you'll be sexy in anything."
