Singer Elha Nympha on Monday, July 25 admitted that before becoming an endorser for Luxe Slim, she was battling her own demons just to look appealing as a celebrity.
Nympha suffered from a mental health condition called body dysmorphia, a disorder where a person becomes extremely worried about their appearances. The singer revealed that she almost had anorexia and bulimia because of the state of her mental health.
“So that’s why ‘yung weight ko before, nag-drop talaga siya. Then I have to stop my diet kasi nga it’s unhealthy and I had to regain some weight po,” she said in the post-interview during Luxe’s first anniversary.
The singer added, “I think masiyado kong pinressure ‘yung sarili ko to lose weight.”
The artist, fortunately, found her confidence and is now flaunting herself without any worry about what others would say to her. She is now focusing on improving her mental health instead of her looks.
“I don’t care if you say you like you’re big. Marami kasing mga tao na nagsasabi na ‘Ang laki mo ngayon,’ ‘Tumaba ka.’ But then again, you have to understand my health. Like hindi nila alam ang side ko at ganoon nga ang nangyari. But then again, I don’t have to disclose any information to them. Kasi nga, you need to take care of yourself first.”
She continued, “Wala na ‘yung pressure right now. I think I am more on embracing myself now. Okay, happy ako kung anong mayroon ako for now. Then maybe, let’s improve later kapag naayos ko na ang sarili ko. Kasi it’s hard eh kapag nasira ang health mo and then mas lalo ka pang magpapapayat and all. It’s unhealthy.”
Meanwhile, Nympha is endorsing Luxe Slim, a product that helps boost weight loss. But for the singer, it is more than just a simple slimming drink. It also made her mental health better.
She is happy to promote Luxe Slim because it did help her embrace herself.
“I’m just so grateful na I am promoting this incredible product po na nakaka-help po talaga for us women. Hindi siya yung katulad ng ibang products na kapag ginamit mo, parang like may downside. This one is puro positive po ang feedback sa Luxe Slim.”
Apart from her, Cassie Legaspi and Maxine Trinidad also represent Luxe Slim. Elisse Joson, on the other hand, is the new face of Luxe Skin.
