In a recent interview, the singer-actress revealed how she stays posh and fresh at 28.

First, she sleeps from six to eight hours every day. Then she drinks lots of water; up to three gallons daily.

Second, Danita avoids eating salty and sweet meals, as well as junk foods and desserts. She has fiber for breakfast like sweet potato or oatmeal then fruits.

Although she still eats rice from time to time, she follows the rule of no carbs after 6 p.m. She noted that discipline is good for losing belly fats.

Exercise? Yes. Danita starts her day by hitting the gym to practice boxing.

Aside from the lifestyle, this girl has a beauty rules.

So, no sleeping with makeup on. In fact, she skips using cosmetics if she can.

Danita uses a premium skin care solution from a Japanese multinational prestige beauty brand. She also applies

evaporated milk on her face for a minute at night.

The singer-actress is the new endorser of the Oceanic Spa which offers a full-service beauty salon and spa.

Wholesome, more work

Is Danita ready to accept mature or sexy roles?

“Tinaray ko naman siya kaso ’pag pinapapanuod ko parang hindi bagay, parang pilit,” she said. “Pero siyempre ’pag kailangan, katulad sa isang movie na ginawa ko may bed scene. Pero nag-ask ako for double kasi may isang scene na talagang kailangan kita likod sa shower. Oh my God, ’di ko kaya! So may ginawa akong konting parts then the rest double na.”

Danita was referring to her upcoming action-drama film for Imus Productions, where she’s paired with Luigi Revilla, son of Sen. Bong Revilla. In the movie, she plays G.R.O. (Guest Relations Officer).

Although she doesn’t have any problem flaunting her physique for pictorials, she feels “asiwa” doing it for the movies.

“I mean pag-photo shoot sobrang comfortable naman ako, pag-sexy layouts kasi pictorial lang ’yun. Pero ‘pag meron kang interaction, medyo mahirap,” she explained.

Danita is also cast in the rom-com movie, “Miss Granny” with Sarah Geronimo, James Reid, and Xian Lim.

She’s also doing a mini-series for Cignal TV.

Moving on, maturity

Having been in the industry for almost two decades now, among the biggest lessones Danita learned is to not date showbiz guys.

Recall that among her failed relationships were with actor JC de Vera and singer Kean Cipriano.

She shared that whenever showbiz men try to court her, she immediately turns them down.

Besides, she is taken—-happy with her businessman boyfriend Javier Manlongat.

“Magpapakasal na ako, mga next year,” she said in jest, quickly adding, “Joke lang.”

Asked if it’s half-meant, Danita said she see herself settling down at least two years from now.

“Madami pang projects tsaka hindi pa naman kailangan magpakasal,” she said. “Actually inspiration ko si Anne Curtis, late naman siya kinasal, wala pa siyang babies kaya I’m fine.”

As to name a showbiz crush, Danita named Jericho Rosales.

“Gwapo para sa akin ’yung confident tsaka magaling magsalita. If physically gusto ko matangkad, maganda ’yung mata, makapal ’yung lips. Kailangan ’pag nag-smile malakas ang dating. Gusto ko moreno para mas lalaking-lalaki,” she said.

But more than Jericho’s look, Danita admires the way the actor treats his co-workers.

“He’s very genuine,” she said.

Recall that the two worked together on 2016 series “Magpahanggang Wakas.”

Career woman

The Entrepreneurship graduate has partnered with Bela Padilla, Yassi Pressman and a few other actor friends for Tipsy Pig, a restaurant-bar business at The Fort.

According to Danita, food business is no easy venture so she’s thinking of having her own clothing line too. Danita said she already has a tailor and they’re planning to partner with malls.
