Her anti-aging secret and easy travel tips are totally perfect for #lazygirlbeauty!
Most celebrity beauty routines tend to be complicated and they usually involve endless unboxings of kikay kits. And although there’s nothing wrong with that, it’s also refreshing to discover low-maint routines that work, too—especially since we can relate to them even more. Check out what we learned (and what you can copy) from showbiz superstar, Marian Rivera’s simple, effortless, and candid approach to beauty. P.S. She gives us the scoop on her best anti-aging secret, too!
Beauty Lesson #1: Keep It Simple.
“Moisturizer, sunblock, and lipstick masaya na ako!” Whether she’s shooting on location or on one of her family’s many travels abroad, Marian swears by keeping her skin moisturized and protected from the sun. “Kasi ’diba when you travel, nagda-dry ’yung skin mo. So moisturizer talaga, hindi mawawala ’yun.” And to accentuate her signature smile? “Addict talaga ako sa lip tint,” she reveals.

Beauty Lesson #2: Don’t Be Afraid To Try Something New.
After Marian became a mommy to baby Zia, she admits that she slacked off on her beauty routine (wala akong time, she confesses) and was more than happy to focus on her family. “To be honest, kapag mommy ka, lalo na if hands-on ka pa, parati kang puyat,” Marian explains. “And marami talagang changes din na mangyayari. Like minsan, iisipin mo na bakit may ganyan ako ngayon—eh dati naman, wala. Now, it takes more effort para hindi mag-mukhang haggard.”
But despite noticing these changes, Marian says that she still didn’t want to try anything new on her skin—especially if it involved needles or injections. “For sure, hindi lang ako ’yung takot sa mga ganyan.”So after she talked about her skin concerns with Dr. Vicki Belo, she was convinced that Thermage (a non-invasive treatment that uses RF technology to gently lift and smoothen skin) was the way to go.“Sobrang nagustuhan ko siya,” says Marian. “Super bilis pa niya gawin kasi after about 30-45 minutes, tapos ka na. Ang ganda nito kasi after one treatment, may na-feel na akong skin tightening and firming—parang ang ganda mo lang bigla!”

According to Dr. Belo, Thermage is an effective, non-surgical way to slow down and reduce the signs of aging since it tightens your skin and produces new collagen. During the treatment, you’ll feel heat from the machine as it penetrates the deeper layers of your skin. “Normal lang naman na may konting redness after, tapos tolerable ‘yung pain, and no need to rest after since there’s no downtime,” Marian shares. “Tapos, napansin ko na the results get better and better. After 2 to 3 months, mas nag-firm pa yung skin ko. Bumalik yung pagka-fresh ko with minimal effort. And then nung sinabi sa akin na results last one to two years, na-realize ko na sobrang worth it na talaga to invest in this type of treatment. So thankful talaga ako na Dr. Belo convinced me to try something new.”
Beauty Lesson #3: Have A Positive Mindset.
“Mas importante pa rin ang totoong buhay na meron ka,” Marian reveals. That’s why her number one advice to looking gorgeous inside and out is to be happy and to prioritize what’s truly important to you. “Now na may anak na ako, nag-lessen na ’yung drama ko. I learned to embrace [what I have],” she explains.“Hindi na rin ako natatakot tumanda kasi aging is a natural thing. And with treatments like Thermage, it makes it easier to accept pa,’diba?”
