With a radiant glow, Jane de Leon takes on a new role as the new face of Freshies while advocating for wellness to maintain a healthy lifestyle
After months of taking flight, Mars Ravelo’s Darna gracefully landed back on the ground with her chin up and a radiant glow that resonated even off the screen. Jane de Leon has continuously proved that she is a woman of purpose and the journey never stops.
In the previous months, Jane has faced challenges and criticisms head-on as Darna. But with a strong mind, active fitness training, and a genuine personality, she’s wholeheartedly embraced everyone’s commentaries and expectations. She took a risk on the role and will keep taking them if that means she’ll keep moving forward. She doesn’t stay still, and as she mentioned in her 2019 MEGA cover story, “We can’t please everybody, ‘di ba? I just need to give my best.”
So it’s no surprise to find that Jane’s taking on another role, and this time, as a health and wellness advocate to a brand she believes in: Freshies Avocado Milk by Juju Glow, a collagen drink that is infused with healthy anti-aging and slimming actives to help skin achieve its bright and youthful glow. Manifesting love and self-care, Freshies offer this reminder to Jane in an exclusive event last April 29 at Shangri-La at the Fort, BGC, Taguig City.
Celebrating a season of freshness
The weekend is a time of rest. Juju Glow sets up a contract signing and press conference event in a hotel with Jane on a fun Saturday for healthy skin conversations to reinforce the idea of taking a break.
In a refreshing summer theme, a touch of green paints the room in the design of the claw machine, beach backdrop, and guests’ attire.
As the invitees poured in at around early noon, they enjoyed an hour of lunch to prepare themselves for the activities. To brighten the day, the host came in to ask around the audience on a short quiz about the brand’s products, such as asking what comes to mind when hearing “collagen.” Many said skin, but aside from that, it’s the most common skin protein found in the body and is crucial to the strength of the bone structures. When collagen levels are healthy, cells that contain collagen take on a strong and youthful appearance, from the skin to bones.
After a series of questions, the attendees could socialize, take photos on the backdrop, and try to win the claw machine’s avocado plushies and Freshies products.
Of health and wellness
The program began with an introduction to Juju Glow’s CEO, Ms. Acee Paita, and Juju Glow’s COO, Mr. Carlo Paita. They’ve extended their gratitude to the crowd and mentioned that they were thrilled to present the face of Freshies collagen drink.
Acee took to the center stage to express her thoughts on the brand. “We also want to emphasize that our product is carefully crafted with your health and beauty in mind. And that is why there has been so much interest in what Freshies collagen is all about.”
It is one thing to garner millions of views on TikTok, where the brand garnered lots of visibility, but it is another to be a product consciously made for the health and wellness of many. As brand owners, they understand the responsibility of diving deep into the headspace of women when it comes to skin and health goals. More than a promising brand name, they are our beauty and wellness partner.
Eventually, Jane de Leon graciously entered the room with a fresh, plump, dewy face that made her look bright like a star. In an ethereal white maxi dress with a hint of black accent and paired with a white ribbon for her hair, she was summer-ready. She brilliantly smiled and conveyed her excitement to the guests.
From being Darna to becoming the fresh face of Freshies, she told everyone that “Before I became an ambassador for this product, out of my curiosity na rin, na-curious ako. So after that, nag-order ako and tinry ko siya and nagustuhan ko, because it’s my favorite. It’s avocado [flavored].”
For the actress, it’s all about trying new things and finding out what works for her body and skin. It just so happened that the brand she’s tried is also looking for that superhero who can bring the spirit of wellness and beauty to a bigger platform. The brand admires Jane’s inner and outer beauty and ability to do more of what she loves in the way she knows how.
Self-care is self-love
Jane further elaborated why she was curious about collagen drinks. “Nakakatulong naman [Freshies collagen drink] kasi super nakakapagod ‘yung ginagawa ko. Not just me, but pagdating talaga sa show business na nakaka-drain, lalo na we need to take care of our bodies, especially ‘yung skin namin kasi ‘yun ‘yung puhunan namin.”
As a fan of avocado, Jane ensures everyone that Freshies can bring not only the flavor but its vitamins and health benefits too, such as improving overall skin health. She incorporates this drink into her daily routine as it helps maintain a healthy lifestyle that keeps her youthful and glowing.
Whatever life event there is, Freshies collagen drink is one of the best products to include in our self-care routine. It’s easy to drink and can help us get a good night’s sleep.
While Jane is already beautiful, fit, and healthy, people can often wonder why she still needs to try these products. “Kailangang ma-maintain lagi. It’s not just because you have a healthy skin na, hindi mo na kailangan i-maintain ang katawan mo or skin mo. I think it helps to use collagen.”
It’s easy to be complacent, but our bodies age, and we need to listen to it because it is ours. To live a better and healthier life, we must start by understanding what we need and can do to work on it.
