New mom Marian Rivera-Dantes is definitely one flawless mom. Even after giving birth to her baby girl Maria Letizia Dantes or Zia, she is even more glowing than ever.
What is her secret to being flawless and beautiful more now that she is a mom?
“Ever since talaga maalaga ako sa skin ko and hindi pa ako artista medyo maarte na ako sa skin so what more ngayon. So nakuha ko yun sa mama ko kasi mama ko palagi nagpapaalala sa akin to take care of my skin so hindi yun nawawala sa akin. Ang number one sa akin pag naliligo ako kailangan malinis ang mukha ko. Kahit anong pagod ko hindi puwedeng hindi ako mag-moisturizer pagtanggal ng makeup. Masuwerte ako pag nagkaka-pimple ako isa-isa, minsan dalawa lang. Pero yung sobrang dami hindi talaga. Siguro nasa genes namin sa pamilya kasi lahat kami especially lola ko, mama ko, lahat kami maaarte (laughs),” she shared.
Marian admits that she really spends time taking care of herself.
She has also been going strong with her endorsements. At 33 years old and many years in showbiz, she is still a favorite for product endorsements.
She shared that maybe her secret is because she is real and honest. She doesn’t like pretentions. And so, if she says no to a product, she means it. And if she says “Yes, I’ll use it!” to a product, you can guarantee that it is true.
She also admits to being meticulous about taking care of herself. She is really rigid with her routine and she pampers herself from head to toe. It’s her motto. Marian believes that if your loved ones see you working hard on taking care of yourself, they will have no reason not to take care of you.
But the biggest fuss was about how she lost all the mom weight quickly after giving birth.
Zia is not even two years old and yet Marian has an unbelievable waistline of 19! It’s not even a bachelorette’s waistline!
So, how did she manage to lose all the baby weight?
“Hindi ako nag-da-diet. Malakas ako kumain. Yun ang totoo. Makikita mo yun sa mga nakakasama ko. Mabilis lang siguro yung metabolism ko. Nagpapa-breastfeed kasi ako hanggang ngayon so siguro isa yan sa mga factor kung bakit payat ako,” she said.
Even when it comes to fashion, Marian is still top-notch. Although she admits that she is really not a fashionista.
According to her, she just wears whatever she wants. She likes to dress up according to her mood. Marian is not one to follow the latest trend especially if it’s not her style. She wears what she likes and she feels good about herself.
She said her ultimate secret is living a happy life. She is unexplainably happy especially now that she has her own family.
“Diyosko pag makita ko yung anak ko happy heart na ako. Smile pa lang ng anak ko pag galing ako trabaho may energy na agad ako. So priceless talaga ang pagiging nanay especially pag linu-look forward mo na pag-uwi mo ng bahay nandiyan yung anak mo para hintayin ka. Importante talaga at malinaw sa akin na ang trabaho ay trabaho. Iba ang personal na buhay at lahat ito ay importante. Lahat ito nabuo ako dahil sa labas at loob ng showbiz. Pero importante pa rin na pagkatapos ng lahat ng trabaho mo, may pamilya ka na totoong buhay mo talaga na meron kang ginagampanan bilang ina,” she said.
