The melancholic beauty of Regina Victoria Mercedes Arnedo Ballesteros

She was the pretty youngest daughter.


She did not possess the scintillating, effervescent beauty of her elder sister Milagros, but she was beautiful just the same, albeit in a quiet and reserved way.

Her parents had not forced formal education on her.

She was only 20 years old when both of her parents passed away within months of each other in 1970…

She was dubbed the “Walking Aparador”…

In the last years of her life, she found consolation in Food…

She was a wonderful woman in her own singular way.

    Perhaps it is only skin deep. But Beauty is very powerful. It can make Men go to War.

    I am a great believer in the Power of Beauty, both in its benevolence and malevolence.

    There is a saying that beauty is only skindeep. Perhaps why there are such a number of beauty skincare products available today?
