Binisita tuloy ng derma: Duterte blames darker skin on Honeylet’s pricey facial creams
President Rodrigo Duterte believes his complexion became darker because he tried the pricey facial cream used by his long time partner, Honeylet Avanceña.
In a speech before businessmen Thursday (October 18), Duterte said Avanceña made him try the facial creams she bought from Shiseido, a luxury cosmetics brand.
“Eh ‘yung asawa ko, Shiseido, may one, two, three, four. Ngayon lang ako nakakita ng medisina na parang rocket. Parang booster. Mahulog ‘yung isa, patuloy mahulog. One, sabunan mo sige. Two, mahapdi na. Three, ganun. Four, five, tapos meron pa ‘yung maliit. Ayan okay na,” he said, drawing laughter from the crowd.
“Pagtingin ko, p****** i**, bakit nangitim ako lalo?” he added.
Duterte said a dermatologist, whom he described as “very good,” recently visited him to check his skin.
He said he was naturally born with a dark complexion.
“Maitim lang talaga ako. Lolo ko Africano eh,” Duterte said.
The President previously said his complexion grew darker because he did not use sunscreen lotions whenever he visited military camps. He said he was also exposed to the sun when he visited the Kingdom of Jordan last September.
