Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

We know that cooking may be difficult with Tagaytay’s bed weather, but that’s nothing a cup of Swiss hot cholate can’t fix! If you fancy a morning walk, stroll over to any of the nearby food establishments in Alpine Villas. Word of advice: Café Voi La offers all-day breakfast meals!

3. Indulge in your food or drink cravings every once in a while

1. This condo living guide reminds you to never forget to put on sunscreen

Sunscreen has multiple health benefits apart from protecting you from the sun.

One of the best skincare tips that is also the most ignored is putting on sunscreen every day, even when it’s not particularly sunny. Don’t be fooled by Tagaytay’s cold weather: you’re still exposed to harmful UV rays! The secret to less dark spots and supple, youthful skin is consistent sunscreen application after your basic skincare routine. Better to use sunscreen with SPF 50+. A lot of brands offer that, but La Mer’s The Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid is one of the most expensive and efficient sunscreens in the market.

2. Have a personal dermatologist and schedule spa trips

 

Everyone’s skin is different: you can’t mix and match skincare products without proper guidance! Aside from knowing skincare basics like taking off your makeup before you sleep, you need to have a dermatologist check your skin regularly and also pamper yourself with spa trips! After all that exercise and working daily, you need a body massage or your nails done! If your busy schedule and the fear of going out too much gets to you, telemedicine and a trusty face mask at your relaxing condo unit in Alpine Villas at Crosswinds is another option.

3. Don’t be selfish with your zzz’s

The simplest beauty tip? Get your beauty sleep! If you’re having trouble sleeping, the comfortable bed in your condo unit is big help. However, you can still find remedies like new pillows, a weighted blanket, a trusty humidifier, or soft background music to set the mood. Tagaytay provides cozy weather, so maybe a cup of hot chocolate before you sleep can help.

Always remember: you can seek help if you feel like you need it. A luxurious lifestyle can get stressful or sad, like anything else. It’s crucial to know when you need a break. Luckily, Crosswinds at Tagaytay gives you all the breathing space you need with its classic views.

 

1. Any condo living guide would suggest to do journaling

Not much of a talker but you need a release? Putting it on paper can work! The balcony over at your condo unit or the tables at Coffee Project are worthy of some journaling in the morning. Write down your thoughts, rip some pages, or talk about your day without worrying that someone will read it. Be honest with yourself and feel more relaxed and in-touch than ever.

 

2. Take a break from social media

Admire the breathtaking views of Tagaytay with little effort! Spend at least a day offline and help yourself to fun activities around the area. Even if you opt to stay inside, read a book or order takeout while listening to music! The world will keep turning even if you rest on the weekends. Remember that working hard is great but not at the expense of your own health!

3. Spring clean, no matter the season

Living in a clean and sanitary home is more than a health precaution: it can bring you so much peace and joy; Marie Kondo style or not! While making sure that your Alpine Villas condo stays beautiful and pristine, you’ll get some ideas on personalizing your place or dabbling in some feng shui for a unique interior design. This is certainly a great way to prioritize your mental health while doing something productive!
