Christina Nadin Is Making Waves For Belo’s Newest Treatment, Mermaid Body


The newest it-girl in town shows us how glowing skin is done with the help of Belo.

If you haven’t gotten the memo, here it is—dewy skin is in. The love for mattes has had its time, and it is now passing. At least for now. With the rise of trends such as the no-makeup-makeup look, sun-kissed cheeks, and supple, glass skin, never has our natural illuminance been more appreciated till now. 

The Mermaid On The Go

For a go-getter like Christina Nadin, adventure is always part of the agenda. The Filipino-Irish beauty has already worked with brands such as FENDI, Off-White, Louis Vuitton, COACH, Kenzo, Coca-Cola, MAC, and Armani Beauty.

As an international model and digital creative, her social media presence doubles as a public portfolio and an online diary of sorts.

Social media has given a platform for aspiring models to express themselves and gain a following. But it can also have a negative impact, too, on self-confidence and body image. Promoting diversity, confidence, and mental health in the industry is very important.

“I like the increase in diversity we are seeing in the modeling industry. It now focuses on body confidence,” Christina points out.

Another part of her job is making sure that she’s ready for the next look and the next move. Traveling may be a part of it, but Christina has a personal connection with the country. “I just can’t get enough of the Philippines because I love the people, the culture, and I really did grow up very Filipino because I actually spent the summers of my youth in Legazpi City in Albay,” she shares. “Sunsilk commercials were always on the TV. I aspired to have that bouncy shiny Filipino hair like the models!”

She mentions Siargao as her favorite place, with its surf scene and the nicest community she has ever met. “Being in the sun makes me so happy!”

It’s also important to look after your skin so I always wear SPF. Naturally, I’m somewhat fair-skinned as my dad is Irish; but I love being tan. Morena skin is beautiful! 

It’s no longer a secret that with the sun kissing our skin comes the damage caused by the UV rays. Prolonged exposure to the sun may give us the tan of our dreams, but dehydration and dullness as well. Seeing this change on her own skin, Christina knew she needed help. “I really noticed a change in my skin so I reached out to my friend Jess Wilson and asked for her recommendation for a good facial.”

The Mermaid On A Roll

Like a siren’s calling, the model was lured into a Belo clinic where she met Dr. Hayden Kho. His prescription? The Mermaid Facial. The treatment aims to give you a deep, hydrating skin with a glass-like finish. The “micro-bubbles” from the patented deep wash technology is responsible for the cleansing and exfoliation with the alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). 

Now, Belo Medical Group is here to help you achieve that glowing, bright skin from to head to toe! Here comes the Mermaid Body—the all-in-one face and body treatment that will not just give you an even complexion but a smooth, radiant skin as well!

How does this work? The Mermaid Body cleans and exfoliates your body to get rid of dead skin cells. With the additional serums infused during the treatment, you are on the way to making the glass skin of your dreams a reality.

The Mermaid Body treatment is opening yourself up to Belo Beauty’s treasure—helping you hydrate, nourish, and rejuvenate your skin.

And if there is anyone who can represent what it means to glow inside and outside, it’s Christina—the face of the Mermaid Body procedure.

“I’ve known about Belo since I was a child. Given it is so well known in the Philippines, it is a proud moment for me to be representing in my motherland,” she gushes. “I love it when my family can see billboards and campaigns I have done globally, especially my family in Bicol. I am so happy to be a part of the Belo family!”

The Mermaid On Her Voice

Outside work, Christina makes sure that her skin gets to rest. She chooses to keep it clean and simple. “SPF daily is a must. I follow a Korean skincare routine. For my makeup, anything glowy is good for me. I love the Dior Backstage Glow added into moisturizer!”

For a profession that heavily relies on what can be seen on the outside, modeling is not just about the physical aspect for Christina. To her, beauty—specifically the Filipino kind—is skin deep.

Filipinos are known for being warm and caring with strong family values. I think these characteristics make Filipinos beautiful.  Beauty should come from the inside and focusing your life on what you value and what you care about and sharing this with others in society.

Christina’s principle on beauty is something that she lives by every day, and she makes sure that she values the beauty of her work as well. When asked about the lesson she has learned from her first shoots and bookings, she answers, “[You have] to be professional and friendly. The industry is small and you often work with the same people multiple times so it’s good to network and make friends along the way. I was always taught to be humble, work hard and to be grateful for what I have.”

Aside from this, the model offers a piece of advice for those who also want to take on the path she has traversed.

Hard work pays off and anything is possible. You should always stay true to yourself, and don’t be afraid to say no to jobs you are not comfortable with or that do not fit your brand. Be confident and don’t worry about expectations.

Just like Christina, Belo Medical Group stays true to its mission of exceeding expectations with beauty breakthroughs like the Mermaid Body. With more than beauty as its goal, the clinic is about empowering women—including Christina—to take care of themselves so they can share their light to others.
