We always talk about Marian Rivera’s penchant for designer clothing and lavish taste in fashion. But when it comes to caring for her immaculate, baby-smooth skin, the 32-year-old actress has a fairly simple beauty regimen and surprisingly affordable skin care faves.
Every day before bed time, Marian treats her skin to a relaxing warm bath. She tells Preview, “Pagkauwi, lagi akong nagre-rest muna. Ayoko kasing biglain yung katawan ko after a long day. So kapag nakapag-pahinga na ako ng konti, nagsha-shower ako with warm water. Very strict ako sa bath water ko. Ayoko ng masyadong malamig or masyadong mainit kasi nakakasama ‘yun sa skin. (After I get home from work, I rest for a bit before hitting the shower. I am very particular about using only warm water—should neither be too hot nor too cold, because it's not good for the skin.)” She then adds, “After mag-shower, ang ginagawa ko, dina-dab ko lang 'yung towel gently sa skin ko para hindi masyadong harsh. Once tuyo na, automatic na ‘yung maglalagay ako ng lotion para ma-lock in 'yung nutrients sa skin ko. (After taking a shower, I dab the towel gently on my skin and avoid rubbing it harshly. Once dry, I immediately apply lotion afterwards to lock in the nutrients.)”
And the products she swears by? Johnson’s Milk+Oats Baby Bath and Baby Lotion—she loves them so much that she also uses them on her baby daughter, Zia. “Maliban sa sobrang bango nito, nakaka-nourish din siya ng skin. Hindi lang sa akin pero pati kay Zia! (Apart from its really fragrant smell, it also nourishes not only my skin but also Zia's.)”
