Popular Filipino-American skin specialist Olivia Quido-Co would always remember Prince Jackson (whose real name is Michael Joseph Jackson Jr.), son of pop icon Michael Jackson, as someone who is humble and championing noble causes.
Quido-Co made the revelation about Prince during a Zoom interview with Philippine media from Los Angeles, California Sunday morning.
“I was so flattered. He and his girlfriend drove all the way here to my skin spa. Napaka-humble niya,” said Quido-Co who is now based in the US.
After skin treatment, Prince invited her to support the Heal the World Foundation of his late father.
“Kung tutuusin nasa kanya na ang lahat at puwede siyang maging spoiled but he’s not. Napaka-down to earth niya at ang mabait,” she said.
Prince, 23, has been promoting his charity aimed at combating social problems such as homelessness, hunger and child abuse.
When Prince went to the skin spa, it turned out it was also his birthday, Quido-Co said. “Binilihan namin siya ng cake at nag-celebrate kami ng konti. Pero imbes na skin care ang pag-usapan namin, iyong charity niya para sa kabataan ang pinag-usapan namin.”
As CEO and Founder of O Skin Med Spa in Los Angeles, California, Quido-Co has devoted 16 years into making people feel and look beautiful. Armed with a deeply-rooted passion for skin esthetics and nurturing instincts, her holistic approach to beauty and life in general has brought her success as a top-rated esthetician, entrepreneur, women’s advocate and a

In 2011, Quido-Co launched her own skin care line which quickly attained a massive following due to its amazing results. They released their 24-karat-gold infused products under “The Secret Collection,” in 2017. Since then, the collection which composed of “Secret Gold,” “Secret Glow”, “Secret Radiance” and soon to be released, “Secret Pearl” became one of the most raved-about skin products among Hollywood celebrities, including Danah Cleaton and Shanty Lowry.
Sought to name the three most beautiful women in Philippine show business, Quido-Co mentioned Ruffa Gutierrez, KC Concepcion and Catriona Gray. “Parang walang pores si KC Concepcion.”
Of the younger batch of Filipino stars, she finds Julia Barretto, Heart Evangelista and Kathryn Bernardo beautiful. “Gusto ko ang mga beauty ng Barretto. Si Heart hindi ako nagsasawang tignan ang face niya. Ang galing umarte ni Kathryn.”
When asked about the most desirable man in local showbiz, Quido-Co revealed: ‘Si Sam Milby lang ang naiisip ko.”
Quido-Co was asked to comment on the beauty of actress Liza Soberano who has also topped several most beautiful lists in recent years. “Maganda naman niya pero wala siya sa top 3 ko.”
Fresh from her interview for the prestigious Forbes Magazine, Quido-Co said that she is set to judge the Miss USA 2020 and Miss Universe Chile 2020 pageants.
For the Miss USA 2020 pageant, she initially admires the beauty of contestants from Louisiana and California. “Hindi ko pa sila lahat nakikita pero itong dalawang girls na ito sa ngayon ang tumatak sa akin.”
