“In my humble opinion, long-lasting beauty is never defined by worldly standards. It is the energy that you surround yourself with and give off to others,” said Iza Calzado.
As she gamely posed in front of the camera during our photo shoot and changed from one outfit to another—sans the unpleasant bravado some celebrities are known for—it was evident that she walked the talk.
“This is what touches their hearts and remains constant in their minds. This is how long-lasting beauty is created and remembered.”
As she rocked every sportswear-inspired outfit in her noticeably toned physique, Calzado was quick to say that her goal was never to be stick-thin, but to look and be healthy.
“Starvation is never the key. Fad diets are crap. Eat right and you can actually become more fit. The more muscle you have the more you can burn fat.”
Now an avid runner, her advice on finding the right workout is to “find one that best suits you and your fitness goals. Go online and do your research. Though there are a lot of conflicting ideas on the Net, I’m sure you’ll find something that best appeals to you and actually works for you.”
On her fitness regimen: “It keeps evolving as I learn more about health and fitness, but I’m in a place where I think I’m at my strongest and still getting stronger.”
For fear of past shortcuts leading to permanent damage, she’s bid shortcuts goodbye and works tirelessly both on maintaining her figure and improving her craft.
She applies the same level of commitment to keeping fit and to taking care of her tresses.
“I believe Pantene and I have the same vision when it comes to creating solutions for problems,” noted Calzado.
“Having the gold standard in hair care is what I like about Pantene. I want long-lasting beautiful hair, because my hair is too tortured from my artista and active lifestyle!”
With the latest from Pantene, women can say goodbye to temporary fixes. The brand has tailored four Pro-V systems with technology to bring lasting hair health.
To address protein loss due to hair damage, the improved Total Damage Care shampoo boasts three times more condensed protein to effectively stop damage progression and prevent future split ends through regular usage.
For hair’s moisture balance issues, the upgraded Silky Smooth Care formula helps lock in essential moisture and shut out excess humidity all day long, and provides added protection to the hair shaft.
As a final step to the regimen, the All-Day Smooth Miracle Water contains a formula to help control hair’s moisture balance.
For hair fall, Pantene’s Hair-Fall Control range promises protection against hair breakage even from up to 100 brush strokes. By working to effectively deliver deep repair to the damaged areas, each individual hair strand receives the right amount of conditioning to prevent breakage and hair fall.
The brand’s Nature Care series also works to nourish hair through the combination of the Cassia Complex and advanced Pro-V technology. Used together as a system, the collection works to restore resilience and fullness to the hair.
To cap off the regimen, the Natural Shine Booster Essence Leave-On Treatment and Roof Lift Mist revitalizes dull, lifeless hair.
For Calzado, maintaining her mane is definitely no joke as her hair is constantly being styled for photo shoots and tapings and is exposed to pollution when she’s running outdoors.
“I use the brand’s shampoo and conditioner daily and the Intensive Penetrating Treatment every other day,” said Calzado, who believes in “putting in the work to get long-lasting results.”
This is why Pantene and I are the perfect fit!” she said.
