After seeing herself in her infancy in the new brand movie, "Make People Warm and Beautiful -- Emotion Version," featuring her as a brand muse, Ms. Ebihara made a motherly comment, saying, "I was born a twin and tiny and was the source of troubles for my parents. As I see my being a baby from the perspective of a mother, feelings much different from what I felt before conjured up."
About pictures taken in her school days, she said, "I was busy swimming in the primary school and playing basketball in the high school. I began modeling as I was a college student and that's when I began to pay attention to beauty care." Ms. Ebihara, who was fond of taking exercise in school, now does yoga and workout as well. She said, "I'm exercising not because I have to but because I enjoy it." She then made a remark mindful of paying attention to beauty care in her everyday life. "For health as well as for beauty care, I'm trying not to cool my body down."
About "Hydro Genius" moisturizing essence which was just introduced, Ms. Ebihara said, "After using it, I felt skin lotion which I usually use penetrated well, giving my skin a lot more moisture. I felt as though my skin became a lot like my son's skin which is always warm and smooth."

Ms. Ebihara talked about what she does to stay healthy and beautiful while playing multiple roles as a model, a mother, and a wife. She apparently paid extra attention to her son's health, not to mention her own health, constantly serving him organic food. Concerning food, she said, "We try to eat body-warming food such as root vegetables. Since I happen to be an herb devotee, I make sure my family drinks warm herb tea as we wake up in the morning." During the product launch, Ms. Ebihara presented to members of the press herb tea, which she blended, together with an original recipe.
In closing words, Ms. Ebihara said, "As I do relate very much to Benefique's new message about making people warm and beautiful, I am very happy to model for its advertisement. I believe the Benefique brand makes the life of women beautiful and glorious. I too would like to be a woman who continues to glow and be attractive, both socially and personally."
