  • It’s hard to believe actress Dawn Zulueta is already 50 years old just by looking at her. The mom of two looks as fresh and radiant now as she did decades ago when she was more active in doing movie projects.

    Asked what her beauty secret is, she said, “Madalas tanungin sa akin yan, kung may secrets daw ba ako diyan, pero wala talaga. 

    “I really don’t have a secret. I guess my only secret lang is hindi ako nagtatanim ng sama ng loob. So, siguro that’s a secret,” she reveals.

    “Masaya ako palagi, I will make it a point. I’m not saying my life is perfect but I do know how to always see the sunny side of things,” she adds.

    Her 21-year marriage is also much-admired in show business, given that only a few last this long. 

    “I believe in respect. Well, part of respect from one another is yung you always… still make an effort for your family. I think that’s very important. Hindi yung masyadong nagre-relax porke matagal na kayong magkasama. Kailangan palaging make the flame alive,” she discloses.

    At 50, she credits her happy childhood memories for keeping her “strong during tough times.”  

    “So I think as parents yan din yung kailangan nating iwanan sa mga anak natin – pampatatag para sa kanila,” she advises.

    In a previous interview with SmartParenting.com.ph, Dawn shared that her family loves to make memories by bonding together, and quality time for them is sometimes just staying at home.

    “We always try to create memories for our kids in every way that we can. It doesn’t always have to be going out of town. Sometimes, it’s just spending time at a home. Even a simple game of Monopoly, I am able to teach my daughter how to add and subtract, [and] the same time, some kind of business sense, so we have fun when we play together.”

    She emphasizes, “it’s time spent together that will remain, that will become the most lasting memories for our children.”
