Ruffa Gutierrez believes that celebrities must always look good especially when they go out in public.
The 1993 Miss World second princess told reporters this at the press launch of her newest endorsement, Cosmo Skin Premium Collagen, held recently.
“Being a celebrity, being a beauty queen, being in the industry, it should come naturally, that wherever you go, you should always look natural and well-groomed," she said.
“We should always look our best because a lot of people emulate you, they follow you.
“And nakakahiya naman sa mga fans kung lalabas ka sa bahay na mukhang di ka naligo, di ka nag-aayos.”
She also stressed, “That first time—that impression would always last.
"I love getting dressed, I love fixing myself. I think, I definitely owe it to the public because I've been in the industry since I was 13 and I'm still around.
“So, I think I owe it to them to really look good and be at my best.”
BEAUTY TIPS. Ruffa observed that as people age, it becomes more difficult to maintain natural beauty.
“Kailangan mag-exert ng extra effort para mapangalagaan ang sarili natin.
“I'm not 18 years old anymore.
"So I really have to go out of my way to take care of myself, my skin, my body, everything,” said the 40-year-old celebrity mom.
Aside from exercise and a healthy lifestyle, Ruffa said it's important to take supplements. One supplement she recommended is the new anti-aging drink of Cosmo Skin, which claims to help diminish fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and sagging skin.
In a press statement, Cosmo Skin director Red Gatus said: "Premium Collagen has a neutral flavor, which can be dissolved in any of your hot or cold beverage. It is all you need to help keep your skin hydrated and moisturized, making your skin supple, healthy, and free from wrinkles and sagging skin.”
Ruffa added, “You know, all these things kailangan, to take care of yourself as a woman.”
More than anything, she said keeping a positive outlook in life is also important in keeping youself beautiful.
“The secret is to be always happy. Always be positive in life. Erase all the negativity,” she concluded.
