That’s how seasoned actress Lorna Tolentino was introduced during a recent public outing where she was named the newest face of a brand known as a leader in wellness and beauty industry.
Regarded as the “grand slam queen,” for being honored by every major award-giving body a much-deserved Best Actress accolade for her role in Narito And Puso Ko (1993) where she plays a mother seeking justice for the murder of her son, Lorna shared a little secret about her career that spans five decades.
“I’m so happy that I’m still here after being in the industry for 50 years. I think people see that I don’t neglect my career and I’m easy to work with. Nakikita nila na nakikisama ako,” LT said of her career’s longevity.
Her prodigious career started in 1969 when she was featured in the film Uhaw Sa Kalayaan as a 7-year-old child actress. She then conquered both television and film with a consistent string of blockbuster hits and top-rating series, giving her a rightful spot in the highest and most respected echelon of the industry.
Currently, Lorna has been commissioned to be part of the ensemble cast of ABS-CBN’s long-running and top-rating action-drama primetime series FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano where she is featured alongside fellow-acting heavyweights such as Coco Martin, John Arcilla, Eddie Garcia, and Susan Roces among many others.
“I started on March 1. I’m supposed to be in the series for only one month. But they got intrigued with the character so they wanted me to extend until September,” she revealed.
A certified icon of beauty, Lorna has been regarded as the ultimate template of the gold standard of beauty and elegance. She has also been hailed as the pictorial queen of the ‘80s, ‘90s, and 2000s as she became an industry leader in beauty and fashion with the chic and stylish looks that she has made popular for three glorious decades.
“Apart from taking care of yourself, it’s also about your attitude and how you feel inside. It also matters that you feel beautiful inside and out,” she said
The grand slam queen was officially welcomed by Beutederm Corporation as its newest brand ambassador. The company was founded and established in 2009 by its President and CEO Rhea Anicoche-Tan.
Beautederm embodies Rhea’s principle that beauty begins by taking care of one’s self, and by doing so a person will become more healthy and shall exude beauty not only in the outside but in the inside as well—just exactly the same principle that Lorna lives by.
“I am honored and extremely happy now that I am finally part of the Beautederm family. I have been a loyal user of Beautederm for years and this is just a formality since I have always trusted this amazing product,” LT shared to which Rhea replied, “She is a remarkable human being and her beauty is striking as ever. A lot of people, including myself, are huge fans of her body of work as an actress as well as her legendary beauty. We are elated to have her onboard.”
