At the press conference for McDonald's 30th anniversary held March 16, 2011 at a McDonald's outlet at Greenbelt in Makati, event host Jackie Lou Blanco shared with PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) her secrets to staying healthy and beautiful.
"It's my lifestyle. I'm not really a night person. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I exercise regularly," she said.
Jackie said she also observes a balanced diet, although once in a while she would indulge—maybe have pasta or cake.
"I eat more vegetables than rice. I don't take too much dairy, not too much deep fried stuff. Once in a while, I cheat. I'll have pasta, I'll have a piece of cake. Pero on a daily basis mas chicken, fish, beef, and a lot of veggies, fruits. Balanced yung diet ko," she said.
However, the key to staying fit and healthy, she said, is her positive attitude in life. This she inherited from her mom, Pilita Corrales.
"I am glad nakuha ko yung positive outlook ng mom ko. More than anything else siguro, yun yung sikreto.
"Parang kung nagwo-work out ka nga, kumakain ka ng mabuti but you're always worried or you're always stressed out, wala din, di ba? So parang the positivity and love of life sort of puts everything together."
As for her beauty regimen, Jackie said she is a firm believer in moisturizer and sun block.
"Basta I use moisturizer in the morning and at night. I also apply sun block before I leave the house."
Jackie said she doesn't use a lot of beauty products on her face.
"I apply minimal makeup lang unless kailangan sa trabaho. I don't put too many products on my face talaga," she said.
