Kapamilya actress Dimples Romana shared an important part of her journey in the third trimester of pregnancy. In an Instagram post on May 23, Dimples revealed her struggles with anxiety after some netizens perceived the changes in her appearance when she revealed her condition.

“Few more days til my tummy turns 8 months…Battling severe anxiety in the morning bilang ang daming nagtatanong kung lumaki na daw ba ilong ko or kung nag iba na daw ba ang face ko kasi ganun daw pag boy ang ipinagbubuntis bakit kayoooo ganyaaaannn. Proof of current situation. So far I find it quite helpful to massage my face daily with skin care, drink Fortima twice daily for immunity and skin health aaaand try not to eat as much sugar and sodium. Bukas magtry ako mag picture ulit baka sakaling magbago yung ilong ko na since 8 months na akong buntis pero sa ngayon, parang wala pa naman. Meron na ba????Good morning to all the preggy mommas who are dealing with anxieties and worries every single day! We GOT THIS.“

In another post, the actress revealed she and her non-showbiz husband Boyet Ahmee have decided to call their third child Elio which has its origins in three languages. “Elio from the French origin means ‘My God is the Lord’ while, in Italian, the baby name Elio is the variation of Aelius or Helios. ‘Helios is the Greek god of the sun,’ ” Dimples wrote on social media.


More than the endorsement, business and contracts, successful Beautederm CEO Rei Anicoche Tan and Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera proved that after four years as the solo endorser for Beautederm Home, they are BFFs for life. Marian revealed that they have plans of going out of the country together for bonding and shopping, but the pandemic happened.

“Yung hilig namin sa magagandang bagay yan ang bonding namin, kapag may bagong collection ang isang brand, magka message na kami agad. Kasama rin sa plano namin yung mag visit kami ni Dong sa bahay nya sa Pampanga kasama ang kids,” Marian said.

Rei added that like in any friendships, “tampuhan” and minor differences are present. “Di ba kapag mahal mo ang isang tao honest ka at sinasabi mo agad ang nararamdaman mo? Ganyan kami ni Marian, may time na medyo nagtampo lang naman ako at pinaalam ko sa kanya. Naayos naman namin agad yan,” Rei said.

The partnership between Beautéderm Home and Marian started in 2018 when the brand launched Reverie – an exquisite line of home scents that originally consisted of soy candles and air purifiers as well as room and linen sprays. Reverie is a play of words between the name of Rhea Anicoche-Tan or Rei – Beautéderm’s President and CEO; Marian’s maiden name; and the concept of the brand’s desired effect to its users – to drift away, dream, and relax while basking in the extraordinary, sweet, and beautéful scents of love by Beautéderm Home. This year, Beautéderm Home levels up as it introduces brand-new, essential products under the Reverie line that will not only provide every home an ambrosial ambiance but will also protect it from germs, bacteria, and viruses as well.
