MANILA – Now 40 years old, actress-endorser Ruffa Gutierrez remained beautiful and confident despite the younger celebrities dominating the showbiz industry.
“Inaalagaan ko naman ang sarili ko and it’s our job to take care of ourselves… Nakakahiya naman sa mga taong humahanga sa atin kung pinapabayaan lang natin ang mga sarili natin,” Gutierrez said in a press conference.
(I’m taking care of myself and it’s our job to take care of ourselves… It will be a disappointment to the people who look up to us if we don’t take care of ourselves.)
“We have to make a conscious effort to look good, always look clean, to look fresh. Kasi (because), it doesn’t matter how old you are,” she added.
The actress then asserted that beauty was not something only the young women possessed.
“Ang beauty naman, it’s never just about the youth. You can still be 40, 50 and still beautiful and have timeless, classic, elegant beauty,” she said.
