Marian Rivera has always been a headstrong woman who’s nothing but honest about herself and her public life, and in her recent introduction as Canesten’s newest ambassador, she once again proved that she’s nothing but real.

Noting that people should not be ashamed about having skin issues (specifically those brought about by fungi), she said, “May advocacy kami na gustong itaguyod na nakaka-experience ng ganito, ng hindi maganda para sa skin nila—na wala naman talagang dapat ikahiya. Wala namang perpektong tao eh… Lahat nagdadaan… Lahat naka-experience niyan at walang masama roon dahil normal tayong mga tao.”

She also shared tidbits of truth about being genuine inside and out. Here are a few quotes that you can use as your personal mantra for days when you need a bit of a confidence boost:

On being happy with yourself

"Naniniwala ako na kapag mahal mo ang sarili mo at wala kang itinatago, makikita yan eh… Ako totoong-totoo ako. What you see is what you get, at wala akong itatago sa sarili ko."

On appreciating your body

"I love my skin. Kaya nga kung may imperfection ka, wala namang masama."

On being honest about who you are

"Maganda siguro na nagpapakatotoo ka sa sarili mo. ‘Yan ang number one rule talaga sa buhay ko. Hindi ko nilalahat, pero sa showbiz kasi minsan takot talaga ang iba na ipakita ang totoong sila. Pero ako hindi eh… Ako ‘yong personalidad ko talaga is very transparent."

On being grateful

"Ang tao, naniniwala ako, hindi nauubusan ng pangarap ‘yan. Kahit simpleng bagay, papangarapin niyan… Pero sabi ko nga minsan… hindi naman kailangan palagi kang mangarap. Minsan ‘pag binibigay na sa ‘yo lahat, o feeling mo na-experience mo na, minsan matuto tayong maging steady lang. Magpasalamat kung anong meron ka."
