Richard Gomez and Lucy Torres-Gomez are often called “goals.”
Richard has spoken at length about how his wife for 21 years continuously inspires him in different aspects of his life.
More recently, the actor and public servant has opened up about how Lucy has encouraged him to take better care of himself in various ways.
“Whether it’s staying fit or finding time for my hobbies, she’s always been very supportive,” he shared. “And lately, she’s really been pushing me to take better care of myself, even my skin. And she’s right! I’m not getting any younger, and I think it’s important to make sure I look as good as I feel.”
Though not many men are open about self-care, and skin care particularly, the 53-year-old loving husband is completely unabashed by the attention he gives to the habit.
“I used to not care,” he admitted. “I’d just splash my face with water, or occasionally go to derma appointments set up by Lucy. But I want to be more proactive about it now.”
One of the treatments he’s recently undergone is Ultherapy, a non-invasive skin lifting procedure that kick-starts the body’s natural collagen production. He took a cue from Lucy after she had the treatment done and enjoyed it.
Having Ultherapy done together also gave the couple precious extra time together, which they try to sneak into their busy schedules. “It’s so important to us that we make the most of the time we have together,” said Richard.
Aware that some people might think it’s vain to take care of skin, he said, “You’re investing in yourself and making sure you’re pushing yourself to be better so you can take better care of the people you love. I hope more men give it a try!”
