The risks and dangers of dehydration, especially in a tropical climate such as the Philippines, are all too real—which is why we need to constantly hydrate. No matter what we do and what we’re into, hydration is a must.

Beverage brand Gatorade Ion takes a step further into promoting this important hydration reminder to all Filipinos by officially welcoming phenomenal Kapamilya actress and host Kathryn Bernardo as its newest brand ambassador in a catch-up session on Instagram Live last June 20.

Bernardo is the perfect personality to endorse Gatorade Ion—with her showbiz schedule, hobbies, and interests keeping her busy and regularly exposed to heat all the time, she always needs fluids to make sure she performs her best.

I’m so happy and very honored to be the newest endorser for Gatorade Ion,” said Bernardo. “I believe hydration is very important for anyone, especially in a warm country like the Philippines where everyone is always on-the-go. Gatorade Ion is the best way to help us avoid the dangers of being dehydrated. It is in citrus quench in flavor, which makes it so refreshing on a hot day. It’s my new favorite go-to drink, I swear.”

We’re really excited to have Kathryn aboard for Gatorade Ion,” said IC Sta. Maria, PepsiCo Philippines Marketing Manager for Hydration. “Regular hydration every day is a must, and with her lifestyle, Kathryn is the ideal person to promote the benefits of staying hydrated.”

The catch-up session with Bernardo, hosted by her good friend and fellow celebrity Robi Domingo, revealed that she had taken advantage of the quarantine to pursue new activities, such as baking, watching K-drama series (Her ultimate favorite is Crash Landing On You! She also watched Descendants of the Sun and Goblin, and is about to start What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?), and learning to play the piano, just to name a few. 

Kathryn also gave a special message to boyfriend Daniel Padilla (whom she referred to as the “frontliner ng pag-ibig”) for taking care of her and her family during the quarantine by bringing them goods and groceries. She said,I’m very happy talaga. Alagang-alaga kami dito sa bahay. Hindi enough ang thank you. Grabe lang yung alaga niya [sa aming lahat]. Hindi siya talaga nagkulang dun. Sa lahat ng andiyan, siya talaga yung nagse-set ng bar na ganito dapat. Feeling ko, parang hindi ko na nga deserve minsan. Grabe siya mag-alaga. I’m really thankful.”
