KAPAMILYA talent Xian Lim is one of the busiest actor of his generation nowadays.
With his hectic schedules and few hours of sleep, his health is at risk.
The actor admitted that due to his "abnormal" lifestyle, he needs to exert more efforts to further boost his immune system.
"Sa trabaho kasi namin, even sa inyo masyadong marami yung pressure. Like may taping kami, minsan natatapos na ng umaga, then you have to wake up early para sa ibang commitments naman. So, you have to be in shape," Xian said in an interview when he visited Avon Davao office last August 5.
Xian added that aside from promoting a healthy lifestyle, exercise and playing basketball, he also drinks some supplements.
The fame Xian is enjoying right now, the good-image he has, are some of the reasons why he was chosen as an ambassador of Avon Life Boost, which has a number of supplements designed to enhance body's defense from different diseases.
The Chinese-Filipino actor was chosen to endorse Defense-C, a chewable Vitamin C that has Acerola Cherry Fruit Extract, a natural source of Vitamin C.
It also has Sodium Ascorbate that helps in reducing acidity.
"It's my mom who introduced me sa Avon, and yung products nila. Nung kinuha nila ako, to endorse the product, I can say na it's perfect for my lifestyle and schedule na very hectic," Xian said.
The hunk actor admitted that when he was still living abroad he has that chubby physique contrary to his "mala-Adan" image right now.
Because of self-discipline, Xian achieves the kind of body he always dreamt of.
"Dati kasi I was so chubby, sabi ng doctor ko, ang laki ko na, that is why naisip ko I should do something. Time na para magpapawis."
Xian confessed that the multi-vitamin he is endorsing under Avon did well to help maintain his vigor and healthy body.
"I'm not only talking with my life, but also the life of others. Na nauulanan, na-aarawan, malamig, mainit pero you have to maintain a strong body kasi you have to work."
Though Avon is known for producing products for women, but Defense-C can also be used by female consumers.
The Avon executives who was with Xian that day made sure that Defense-C has the right amount of minerals the body needs.
"What is good with this product is yung amount of the minerals it contain is sakto lang sa need ng katawan natin. Which means, di siya nasasayang, hindi rin sobra," said Faith Fernandez, head of PR & Communications of Avon Philippines.
"The price is right, it is sold at P299 per bottle with 60 tablets, that's P5 a day. Di masyadong mabigat na amount to invest in maintaining a healthy body," added Jaezell Ang, associate category manager of Avon's Nutrition and Kids.
Avon, the company for women, and few men continues to create product that is not only marketable, helps their associates in earning thru selling the merchandise, but at the same time, flooding the market with items that surely meet the needs of its clients.
