Heart Evangelista has one rule of thumb when it comes to her beauty routine: "Make sure what you put on your skin is good."
She admitted to being "very, very meticulous" about keeping her skin spotlessly clean, explaining, "What you put in your body is going to be absorbed by your body...
"You want to make sure that the makeup, the products, anything, you have to make sure what you put on your skin is good."
Heart emphasized that staying fresh is a holistic concept, intoning the premise of the "all natural, made out of plants, and cruelty-free" brand Beauty Library that she endorses.
She continued, "When you take care of yourself, it shows with your body. So, that's how I stay fresh and that's the only way.
"You can't just keep putting make up to stay fresh or to look fresh.
"You really have to work from within, with your health and everything else will follow.
"It's just different. There's this glow when you're healthier."
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) met with Heart during her contract signing with Beauty Library last May 8 in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
Heart also stressed that being at peace with herself, and accepting her flaws help unlock her inner glow.
The GMA-7 actress-host said, "This is just who I am. I'm not tall, I'm not mestiza, I'm not a certain way, and I've learned to really love and accept myself.
"Once you accept yourself, once you really truly love yourself, I think you bloom more.
"I feel like I'm the best version of myself compared to before when I cared so much about what other people would say about me.
"I just accept myself truly and fully now, so I feel much better about myself."
