As one of the busiest hosts on television today, Gretchen Ho said she is constantly on the go for continuous assignments for Umagang Kay Ganda, and her various endorsements. This used to cause some problems forher skin. “Because of my lifestyle, I always wake up really early in the morning tapos madalas walang tulog. Tapos pag gising ko sa umaga I have to put on makeup right away. So if I don’t take out my makeup, dun nag-bi-buildup ng dirt in my pores tapos nagkakaroon ako ng acne. So minsan naiinis ako because I have big appointments or big events and then suddenly there’s this zit that pops up. But now I’ve already managed to take care of my skin well and know what to put and have that skincare routine para laging fresh kahit saan man magpunta,” she shared during her recent Celeteque commercial shoot in Makati City.
Even during her impressive performance at the All Star Games, the Celeteque celebrity endorser said she just put on minimal makeup even with all the cameras around. “Hindi kasi ako yung type that would always wear makeup but I just have to put on the powder and I’m good to go kasi I rest my face since I put on makeup everyday. So during the weekends when I go to the mall I put on powder then okay na. Nung nag-All Star Games naka-powder lang ako nun,” she recalled.
It’s been two and a half years since her last relationship but Gretchen denied she has been too busy to make time for love. “Work has been my partner for the past, ilang years na ba? Wala pang nagpapatigil sa akin. Wala pang nagpapatigil sa woman in action (laughs). May time naman ako but I don’t like wasting time so if I don’t think it’s going to work out from the onset, hindi ko na pinapaasa yung mga guys. But I’m open for that,” she admits.
When asked what qualities she is looking for in the right man, the 29-year-old athlete gave a clear picture of her ideal date. “Gusto ko ng tall, athletic, God-fearing, masarap kausap basically,” she added.
