It has been more than 15 years since Barbie Hsu was introduced to the Pinoy viewers.
The Taiwanese actress became famous in Asia for her iconic role as Shan Cai in Meteor Garden.
She was then the envy of ladies because of her good-looking co-stars Jerry Yan, Vic Zhou, Vanness Wu, and Ken Chu.
Fast forward to 2018, Barbie has been married to Chinese businessman Wang Xiaofei for eight years, and is pregnant with their third baby.
Last April 11, 2018, she admitted feeling "too old" to give birth.
In her interview with The Apple Daily, Barbie said, "I think my body can't take it. I'm too old now.
“But it's fate because before this, I had already decided not to have any more kids, which is why I took on so many jobs..."
The couple welcomed their daughter Xiyue in 2014 and their son Xilin in 2016.
She looks younger than her age though.
Barbie is 41 years old.
Her beauty secrets? Drinking warm lemon juice and rose tea everyday and getting enough sleep.
The former hydrates the skin, while the latter repairs and restructures it.
In her best-selling book Beauty Queen: Secrets of Beauty Treatment by Barbie Hsu (Chinese Edition), she also stressed the importance of avoiding the sun.
Aside from using sun screen, Barbie always brings an umbrella.
Also part of her routine is making snow fungus soup part of her diet thrice a week to replenish the collagen, which can help reverse aging—according to HealthLine.com.
Barbie is Elle Taiwan's cover girl for its April 2018.
