BEAUTéHAUS Formally Welcomes JC Santos and Shyleena Santos As Its Official Brand Ambassadors

BEAUTéHAUS formally welcomes dramatic actor JC Santos as its official brand ambassador together with Shyleena Santos, his wife who is a nurse and chef.

Established and founded by Rhea Anicoche-Tan in 2016, BeautéHaus is a subsidiary of the Beautéderm Group Of Companies and it is arguably considered as a major beauté hub in Angeles City, Pampanga.

JC SANTOS (enjoying Beautétox & Exilift)

The clinic boasts one of the best medical teams in Northern Luzon that specializes in dermatology as well as the latest top-of-the-line, cutting-edge machines and equipment in the field of aesthetic medicine.

For the past six years, BeautéHaus has been attracting thousands of patients because of such procedures as its signature Beautédrip’s, Snow White Laser, Beauté Rejuve Laser with Beauté Glow Peptide, Ultimate V-Lift, and Beauté Hifu among many other fabulous and life-altering treatments.


JC started to undergo several procedures in BeautéHaus shortly after he became a father to his baby girl. JC’s main concern is to get rid of his “dad bod” while getting back into shape so he underwent Lipodissolve and M-Shape – which are non-invasive body sculpting and slimming treatments. 


JC also did Beautétox to soften and eliminate wrinkles as well as Exilift which improves the appearance of dark circles in the eyes as well as eye puffiness and eye wrinkles. 

"Even us men must take the effort to look good,” says JC. 

“As an actor, it is my responsibility to take care of myself especially now that I am also busy taking care of my little girl. I work long hours and the stress of the job is taking a toll on my appearance. I am so happy and grateful that my treatments with BeautéHaus compliments my workouts and my healthy diet.”

Rhea Tan on the other hand is equally elated to welcome JC to the Beautéderm Group Of Companies as the brand ambassador of BeautéHaus. “BeautéHaus started as a side hobby of mine. I initially bought all the machines for my personal use until I decided to open the clinic. I didn’t realize how successful the clinic is until several years ago. 

"I am so excited to have JC onboard now that we are gearing up to move the clinic to bigger space in Beautéderm Corporate Center where it will be part of the lifestyle hub that we will launch this year.”


JC Santos is born and raised in Pampanga who started his career in theater before he skyrocketed as one of the industry’s most respected young character actors with notable performances on some of ABS-CBN’s top-rating series namely Till I Met You, Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin, and FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano as well as feature appearances in a steady string of critically-acclaimed films as 100 Tula Para Kay Stella, The Day After Valentines, and Miracle In Cell No. 7.
