Sunshine Cruz on what makes her beautiful: "Hindi lang naman iyong diet and supplements iyon. Kailangan may peace of mind ka at nakakatulog ka. Kasi kahit naman anong take mo ng iyong vitamins or supplements, pag wala kang peace of mind at hindi ka makatulog nang maayos sa gabi, hindi rin mag-e-effect. So, I guess iyon ang magandang combination talaga: healthy food, kakain ka ng vegetables and fruits; kapag may time to sleep, you sleep; and then just be positive."


If you've been hiding under a rock all this time and you're seeing Sunshine Cruz only now, you wouldn't believe that she's 36 years old... and a mother of three!

With vital statistics not veering too far from the ideal 36-24-36, this Kapamilya star could rival any young sexy star today.

In a recent interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Sunshine opened up about the secrets to her shining, glowing beauty.

One of her not-so-secret secrets is to have a healthy lifestyle.

"First and most importantly, I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Eat a lot of fruits and veggies, and exercise regularly.

"Ako, I must admit, I only started exercising recently. I do Zumba. It's fun and at the same time healthy, but other than that, I have to say, medyo... hindi talaga ako ano, e, ma-exercise.

"But I try to maintain lang iyong kinakain ko. I watch what I eat."

Surprisingly, Sunshine is a big fan of rice. "Hindi talaga ako makakain nang walang kanin!" she admits.

But she always makes sure to eat fruits and vegetables to keep her diet balanced.

WOMAN IN BLOOM. As for her skin, Sunshine posseses that glowing white beauty that many would envy.

She says, her only secret is that she takes her daily dose of an organic neutraceutical supplement called Blooming G.

"Honestly, hindi talaga ako masyadong nag-iinom [ng mga supplements]. Ano lang ako before, Vitamin C lang every day.

"But then, in-add ko iyan sa daily routine, iyong uminom ng Blooming G kasi when I met the people from Bauch, the makers of Blooming G, and I started trying the product last August, na-notice ko iyong difference.

"Ibang tao ang nagsasabi sa 'kin, actually, na parang... para daw may kintab iyong skin, parang may bronzer, nagshi-shine, nag-go-glow.

"And I'm 36 now, and wala naman akong pinapaayos, so I think iyon iyong isa sa effects, parang nakaka-bagets, kasi iyon nga, sinasabi nila madalas na parang hindi nagbago [ang hitsura ko] from before."

The product is said to contain Borage oil, a type of essential fatty acid that contains high amounts of omega-6.

Borage or starflower has a high stem with oval shaped leafs pointed upwards, and small bright blue or pink flowers with five triangular petals arranged in the shape of a star.

Its oil, which comes from seeds, contains a significant amount of omega-6 fatty acids that promotes overall body wellness, particularly the development of skin cells.

INNER BEAUTY. Apart from her daily maintenance, Sunshine also asserts that inner calm greatly affects physical beauty.

"Yes, of course, hindi lang naman iyong diet and supplements iyon. Kailangan may peace of mind ka at nakakatulog ka.

"Kasi kahit naman anong take mo ng iyong vitamins or supplements, pag wala kang peace of mind at hindi ka makatulog nang maayos sa gabi, hindi rin mag-e-effect.

"So, I guess iyon ang magandang combination talaga: healthy food, kakain ka ng vegetables and fruits; kapag may time to sleep, you sleep; and then just be positive.

"Kahit anong nangyayari sa'yo, kahit anong salimuot nang sitwasyon mo sa buhay, mag-focus ka sa positive things na nangyayari sa buhay mo."

Despite what she went through last year, when her marriage to husband Cesar Montano finally went kaput after allegations of infidelity, she is able to find genuine peace these days through the power of prayer and putting her focus back on her showbiz career.

"Hindi ko sinasabing mas happy ako ngayon na hiwalay na ako. Malungkot iyon.

"Siyempre iniisip mo na makasama mo iyong tao na iyon hanggang sa pagtanda mo.

"But what I do now is I pray. I pray a lot talaga.

"Everytime na nalulungkot ako, I just pray, and it really helps. It realll helps.

"And, of course, nagpapasalamat din ako that iyong trabaho ko is tuluy-tuloy. ABS-CBN has been really kind to me dahil... sobrang blessed ako that they always give me work.

"It helps para mag-heal ka, kasi pag wala kang trabaho, nakaka-depress, iisipin mo na lang lagi iyong problema mo, iyong mga malungkot na nangyari sa buhay mo.

"So, prayer, and work, and my children, sila talaga iyong nagbibigay ng lakas sa akin.

"Sila talaga iyong nagbibigay ng lakas ng loob and nagpapaganda sa akin," she says of her three daughters Angelina Isabel, 12; Samantha Angeline, 9; and Angel Francesca, 8.
