A Day with Zen featuring Christine Dychiao

This week, we asked one of our long-time supporters, Christine Dychiao (@christinedychiao) what her day with Zenutrients looks like! Christine is the co-host of The Tita Project Podcast, a certified KonMari Consultant (@sparkjoy.ph), a wife and mother of three, and a Zen user for almost a decade. Read on to see what she and her family use every single day.

The Family Staple

We have been using Zenutrients Gugo shampoo for close to a decade now. It's a bathroom staple. Even if we rotate it with other shampoos, the Gugo shampoo is a constant. I swear it helped me with hair fall during the time I was popping out babies and my hormones were out of whack. It has never left us since. In the family though, I am the only one who uses the Gugo conditioner. It helps keep my hair soft and easy to comb after a shower.

The Crowd Favorites

If there is one thing that we would call our all-around fave, it has got to be the bug spray! Doesn't matter if it's the Eucalyptus & Lemongrass or Lemon & Citronella Insect Repellant, they both work like a charm. Whether we go outdoors or just stay indoors, we spray it on to keep mosquitos away. I get a weird sense of satisfaction whenever I see a mosquito and run after it with bug spray. I spray it on the bug directly and you can literally see the mosquito stop on its tracks and fall to the floor. It's that good, with no harmful chemicals at all!

The Spahhnitizer is something that goes with me wherever I go. I have it in my bag for sanitizing stuff—packages, my credit card, anything somebody else touches haha. At home, I use it to sanitize my yoga mat and workout equipment. The Spahhnitizer comes in Lavender and Fresh Bamboo, they both smell divine, it's difficult to choose a favorite so I buy both.

Beauty and Skincare Go-tos

Argan & Cucumber Nourishing Eye Cream

I am of the opinion that when it comes to eye creams, they are all equal, no matter what brand or price point. So when I discovered this Argan & Cucumber eye cream, I found my holy grail of eye creams. It's cool & soothing on the eye area, you don't need to use a lot as it spreads on thinly and smoothly, it smells amazing and it doesn't hurt that I bought it for less than Php300 during a Zenutrients sale. Pat it on gently at night and you wake up feeling like the skin around your eye area is once again perfectly taut and tight, like you were 10 years younger.

Aloe Calendula Face Serum & Hyaluronic Acid

Don't be put off by the initial stickiness once you apply, it dries on smooth with a subtle cooling effect and a faint pleasant scent that does not overwhelm. I use it on my neck and decolletage area since I have a semi-complicated facial care routine that does not leave any more room for other products on my face. It's perfect for the neck & decolletage because these are often overlooked areas that need equal care and attention using products that actually work. Also, a serum for less than Php1000? What?! 

Argan & Kelp Skin Recovery Cream

It's a fantastic moisturizer for the body that smells amazing and decadent. It reminds me of summers at the beach. It contains hyaluronic acid too, so it really binds to water to seal in the moisture. Great post-shower as it doesn't feel sticky on skin!

Whenever Zenutrients comes out with new product releases, I always make sure to try them out because it could possibly be the next gem I add to our personal hygiene lineup.

Editor’s note: The Eucalyptus & Lemongrass Bug Repellant Spray and Lemon & Citronella Bug Repellant Spray have been discontinued. You may try our Lavender Spahhnitizer instead, which is another one of Christine’s top picks!
