However, despite the fact that the journalist kept a bit of a mystery about her age, her experience of more than 50 years on television revealed that Gloria was already three years old. However, even with the effects of her aging, the presenter was able to present a rejuvenated look.
But what are the journalist’s secrets? She continues to read and understand.
In an interview with Canal GNT, in 2015, the journalist revealed a kind of secret recipe to keep the skin wrinkle-free. At that time, the plastic surgeon Ivo Pitanguy recommended this technique.
“A little Bepantol, Hypoglós and a few drops of Vitamins E and A. You mix it in the palm of your hand and apply it to your face. I learned from Dr. Pitanguy and don’t forget it. He explained to me: Bepantol is good for removing stains , Hypoglós hydration, vitamin E restores tissues and A gives you vitality. So I don’t need anything else”, reveals Gloria María in Allure.
In this sense, in a previous interview with Vitat, Ana Clara Brathwaite, a biomedical specialist in aesthetic health, indicated that Bepantol is an ointment whose main ingredient is vitamin B5, which helps in skin cell repair.
In addition, being a product that has specific lines, it offers various benefits and for all ages. The derma version, for example, focuses more on tissue repair and hydration for the face, lips, body, and even hair.
“It also aids in the skin’s natural moisture production, stimulates collagen production, aids in healing, and increases moisture-binding power,” she adds.
Vitamins, which are important antioxidant compounds, have been part of Gloria María’s skin routine. With anti-inflammatory properties, some of the vitamins that the journalist took fight free radicals responsible for accelerating the aging process of cells.
And so, Gloria revealed in a program to Jô Soares that she takes about 80 vitamin pills a day:
“In the morning, I take about 35 at a time. In the afternoon, about 20 more. Vitamin A is said to be good for skin and nails, and joints. Vitamin C to strengthen the immune system. I take the entire alphabet.” Vitamin A, said Gloria, b, c, d, e, f.
