Did You Know Senator Loren Legarda Used to be a Model for Pond's?
Check out her ad from 1977!
(SPOT.ph) Chances are, you most probably know Loren Legarda as a senator, or even as running-mate of the late Fernando Poe Jr. back in 2004. If you knew her a little earlier in her career, she was also a news reporter and earned a number of awards with her work. But, as she reveals in her Instagram post dated February 23, she was also a model for Pond's.
She posted a photo of her in an ad for the skincare brand, which shows her with her medium-length, curly hair, smiling under a tagline that says, "How I made peace with my oily skin." She recounts the ad in her caption, saying, "This print ad was released in 1977 when I first broke into the scene as a fresh-faced 17-year-old Pond’s girl. That’s how long I’ve been in front of the camera, in the public’s eye." She also thanks the brand for the opportunity that she says, "opened many doors" for her. "At 58, people ask about my skin care regimen and I tell them I still use this product until today."
Many Internet users commented on the photo to admire and praise the Senator for her looks. One user even joked about her posting a bikini photo, to which the Senator replied, "Will look for one," complete with a wink emoji.
