MANILA, Philippines - Once again we have proven that even celebrities are not exempted from the usual experiences that people go through.

On Tuesday, Nikki Gil-Albert was introduced as one of the ambassadors of beauty brand Aveeno in the Philippines. During the event held at the Banyan Hall of Blue Leaf Events Pavilion, McKinley, the actress/singer shared her own skin experience.

“I grew up with very sensitive skin and even went through an acne phase, so you can only imagine how difficult that was for me growing up,” she said.

“It also didn’t help that entering showbiz at a young age meant exposing my skin to thick makeup, sleepless nights, exposure to heavy lights and a lot of traveling, which all eventually caused my skin to dry up.”

Being in an industry that always scrutinizes people based on their physical appearance, Nikki shared that having dry skin made her feel insecure and less confident about herself. That is why Nikki goes through great lengths to make sure her skin is well taken care of.

Nikki recalled that phase in her life as a "traumatizing" experience which made her decide to be a skin advocate.

"It is a different kind of trauma for me, which is why I have always been a skin care junkie and Aveeno has always been a staple," she quips.

Nikki hopes that her naturally beautiful skin story would inspire everyone to be proud of their skin experiences and inspire them to love and take care of their skin even more.

Aveeno is available in all leading supermarkets and drugstores nationwide and is currently being distributed by Johnson & Johnson.
