As an actress, Dawn Zulueta says, “...you try to present yourself in the best way na maganda ka or sexy ka or kung ano man iyon.”

Dawn Zulueta, 46, is considered an epitome of timeless beauty.

But maintaining her youthful looks and slim figure, she admits, is not entirely effortless.

“Well, of course, artista ka, you are in the business of show.

“That’s why it’s called show business, di ba, you are supposed to show yourself.

“And when you show yourself, you try to present yourself in the best way na maganda ka or sexy ka or kung ano man iyon."

Dawn reveals she has been undergoing slimming treatment at the beauty clinic for almost 10 years now.

“After ko nanganak, I had to go with treatments at least three times a week for three months straight,” she says at Marie France's 30th anniversary celebration in Nobu Restaurant, City of Dreams Manila.

“Siyempre, nakakatulong sa amin [artista] talaga yung mga establishments na gaya ng Marie France, lalo na sa akin.

“Ngayon, maintainance na lang talaga ginagawa ko.

“It has kept me in shape all these years, even now in my forties.

“Kapag na-reach mo na yung desired weight mo, you can go like mga thrice a week, puwedeng once a week.

“I'm the proof that age is no barrier to staying slim," she relates, smiling.

How about her beauty regimen?

“Tulog at tubig, umiinom ako ng maraming tubig.”

Does she still feel any pressure to look beautiful?

“Oo, konti, but I don’t let pressure get to me.

“I can only be the best that I can be at my age and I think that’s good enough for me.


“At forty-six, if I can look good, I am happy."

One advice she gives to women in their 40s: do not aspire to look half your age.

"I don’t compare myself to the young girls…I cannot compare myself with the twenty-one-year-olds.

“A lot of women at my age like to also look good, feel good about themselves, so I hope I inspire them.”
