With her eccentric, sunny, and go-getter personality, not to mention her impressively beautiful voice, it’s really impossible to forget Lie Reposposa, one of the teen housemates of Pinoy Big Brother Otso and the winner of their batch and the eventual sixth Big Placer of the entire season.
And now that she’s been in the outside world for more than a year already, many of us were completely surprised upon seeing her huge physical transformation through the photos she’s been uploading on Instagram recently. We’ve noticed how her skin has become fairer and more flawless, as well as how she appeared leaner and prettier, as seen in her shots collated in this gallery.
With the sudden change in her appearance, many assumed that she underwent cosmetic surgeries and consumed glutathione to glow up. Thus, in order to address the issue, the 16-year-old “Teenig ng Tawanan of Davao Del Norte” published a vlog on her eponymous YouTube channel last August 25 that
she titled “MY GLOW UP SECRET REVEAL.”
“Unang-una po sa lahat, hindi po ako nagpa-retoke. Totoo po ‘yan. Wala po akong pera pang-retoke at siyempre underage po, bawal po magpa-retoke,” she stated. “Tapos ‘yong sinasabi nilang nagpa-gluta ako, hindi po totoo ‘yon. Hindi po ako nagpa-gluta pero feeling ko dahil sa lockdown, siyempre ‘di tayo nakalabas-labas, ‘di tayo naaarawan.”
She added that due to their hectic schedule back then, she wasn’t able to fully take good care of herself, which caused her to only sleep four hours a day and to develop pimples.
Aside from debunking those assumptions, Lie also disclosed her secrets or the things she did in order to achieve the look she has now, which are actually basic and easy-to-follow.
First, it’s a must to have six to eight hours of sleep in a day and that we should be already asleep by 11PM. It also helps to drink a glass of water upon waking up and plenty of it throughout the day.
Just like many of us during this quarantine, she also keeps her body healthy and fit by working out for 30 minutes to one hour in a day, or every time she’s bored. While we were expecting her to enumerate the skincare products she uses for her now flawless skin, we’re probably surprised to hear that she’s actually just using common brand of body soaps that we can buy in supermarkets or sari-sari stores near us. She also shared the food and beverages she avoids.
She went on to remind us, as well, to love ourselves, to keep on praying, and to always maintain a positive outlook in life by thinking happy thoughts, spreading good vibes, and staying away from the toxic people in our lives.
“Kung sino man nanonood ngayon, may igaganda pa po talaga kayo. Huwag po kayong mag-stick na hanggang d’yan lang ‘yong kaya n’yo. Pwede naman kayong mag invest-invest sa sarili n’yo ‘onti,” she said.
Then she continued, “Kung satisfied naman kayo sa sarili n’yo, okay naman po ‘yan. Basta, you are confident, ‘yon lang po ‘yon tapos masaya po kayo sa buhay n’yo, ‘yon po ang pinaka-the best. Kasi meron naman pong iba na nasa kanila na ang lahat pero ‘di pa rin sila masaya. Kaya be yourself, be confident, tapos mag-set din po kayo ng goals ng kung anong gusto n’yo sa buhay. Tapos maging satisfied din kayo sa kung anong meron kayo.”
Lie also went on to advice the viewers to not be affected with how others perceive us, to find our own happiness, to be open-minded, to always stay humble, and to find genuine friends.
Way to go, Lie!
