Just like many girls her age, reality show star-turned-actress Maris Racal harbored insecurities behind the camera.
It’s a fact that she revealed in a series of tweets posted on Twitter on Monday, February 8.
Maris, who broke through local showbiz in 2014 after a successful run with a popular local reality show, opened up about having to “hide” her insecurities and “keep up with all the pretty girls around me” by making sure she looked her best all the time.
Omg may shshare ako sa inyo. This was me in my ANTM era and my nene era. Feel na feel ko yung ganda ko nun but behind the camera, i had SO many insecurities. Marami akong #SanaAll goals. pic.twitter.com/qpZJAPzFEZ— Maris Racal (@MissMarisRacal) February 8, 2021
I’ve always been maarte in a way na kailangan naka polbo ako, di ako oily, naka ayos hair ko. Maybe it was a way for me to hide my insecurities and keep up with all the pretty girls around me. #pain pic.twitter.com/8x4eLCC209— Maris Racal (@MissMarisRacal) February 8, 2021
On a quest to improve herself, Maris likewise went to the one person she trusts for some tried-and-tested beauty advice: her mom.
I would always ask my mom about her regimens kasi nga marami akong gustong baguhin sa sarili ko physically. pic.twitter.com/QuecDb4LOr— Maris Racal (@MissMarisRacal) February 8, 2021
As she grew older and wiser, Maris started to confront her perceptions about herself. She realized that loving and accepting oneself, flaws and all, is the key to being beautiful inside and out.
Part of her tweet read, “Looking back, naisip ko bakit kaya ako ganun? Simply because I was young and insecure. Now that I’m more mature, I’ve learned to love my own beauty, my own skin.”
Looking back, naisip ko bakit kaya ako ganun? Simply because I was young and insecure. Now that I’m more mature, I’ve learned to love my own beauty, my own skin. Lahat ng tao may kanya kanyang natural na ganda and we’re all in a long trip to loving ourselves. ??— Maris Racal (@MissMarisRacal) February 8, 2021
Maris also reminded girls who may be feeling the same way that “self-love is the best love.”
Be true to yourself lang and gaganda ka naturally. Always remember na choice mo lahat ng gusto mong gawin sa katawan mo, sa sarili mo basta love yourselves lang talaga mga siz!!! Self Love Is The Best Love and I do this by taking care of my skin and I like to keep it natural. ? pic.twitter.com/1NZhdoYi4k— Maris Racal (@MissMarisRacal) February 8, 2021
To enhance that unique, natural beauty, Maris advised fans to take good care of their skin by using products made with natural ingredients. Doing so not only can help make the skin look healthy and good — it can make one feel better about themselves, too.
