It's refreshing to see celebrities all au naturel during this quarantine—tucked in their sheets, wearing their jammies with barely washed hair and no makeup. While we do love seeing them all glammed up, it's truly a sight to see them in candor. Among whom is KC Concepcion who recently talked about her "new-found natural lifestyle" on an Instagram Live session with Shiseido Philippines and Rustan's Beauty Source. Specifically, KC discussed about keeping healthy both in body and mind.
The actress and singer, currently quarantined at a medical spa outside the metro, opened up with the Japanese cosmetics brand how the lockdown has opened her eyes to new perceptions about beauty.
"This really gave us a chance to have like what? Three or four months to actually look deep inside to just be exactly what we want in life and how we want to take care of ourselves," she said.

KC's priority these days remains to be health, she said. She stressed on the importance of skincare tantamount to self-love and it being a way to radiate positivity around. "Everything that you put in your bodies will show on the outside. And as much as people say, 'You know, focus on the inside. The inside is what counts.' Of course, but I think there is something to be said about people who take care of their outside appearance as well," she declared.
As for KC's skincare herself, she prefers to keep her face natural, bright, and dewy—healthy, in every sense of the word! "There's so many things going on in the world right now that we just kind of want to really be a little simpler in a really cool way. I mean, there's something very very interesting about you being yourself," she explained.
How does this beauty ambassadress manage? She invests in good quality products like those from Shiseido, a brand that makes her feel like she can just be her natural self. "It's just products that really enhance what you already have. So, I don't feel the need to change totally how I look," she shared.
KC's favorites include the brand's Revitalizing Treatment Softener, Ultimune Defense Mist, and the best-selling anti-aging serum Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. Then talking of the anti-aging serum that has won 132 awards globally, she admitted, "I love using products that have proven something to all the customers and all the women that have used them."

At the talk, KC admitted that she was actually wearing powder and a little concealer only to take it all off on cam. "I want to show you that good skin also comes from the products that you use," she began.
All said, KC's biggest takeaway is appreciating one's own beauty. "I think being natural is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. And not to be so pressured to put so much makeup all the time and not to be so pressured to dress up a certain way all the time," she said.
"I hope that a lot of girls and ladies, and ladies and girls at heart, are not afraid to show more of their authentic selves especially in these times."
