Embrace the Signs of Aging: Here's How You Can #CelebrateYourAge
Worried about the signs of aging? These inspiring women will help you #CelebrateYourAge.
One of the most radical things you can do in a world that attempts to dictate how women should look, feel, and act, is to #CelebrateYourAge. This doesn’t mean ignoring or being oblivious to the signs of aging. Rather, it is being gentle with yourself and embracing the way your body is changing. It is acknowledging that these physical changes are nothing to be ashamed of, but are simply new ways of radiating beauty and grace.
9 Ways to #CelebrateYourAge
POND’S Age Miracle encourages you to #CelebrateYourAge, just like these women who are standing for positive aging and living their best life. POND’S has partnered with celebrities in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, who openly shared their age anxiety confessions. Take your cue from these inspiring women: love yourself no matter what age.
Alice Dixson doesn’t let age stop her from doing more.
Actress and businesswoman Alice Dixson froze her eggs at 42, a decision that was met with negative reactions from people around her. “They couldn’t believe my desire was to have a child. I knew I’d have naysayers, and if I allowed their judgment to get to me, I would have lost opportunities,” she shares. At 51, she is a mother of a three-year-old. “I couldn’t be happier. Don’t let what other people think, what YOU doubt or fear, stop you from getting what you really want in life.”
Marjorie Barretto has fully embraced her age.
Marjorie Barretto has been in show business since her teens. In her 40s, she started vlogging, despite being afraid that she was “too old to vlog.” With the support of her adult children, she pursued her new passion and allowed herself to grow. “I myself have been a victim of this. Getting old wasn't something I looked forward to, but now, it's something that I have fully embraced. At this stage in our lives, the only one that's stopping you from pursuing new things, passions, and ambitions in life is yourself,” she shares.
For Geneva Cruz, wisdom is the most beautiful part of aging.
At 45, singer and performer Geneva Cruz was told that she was “too old to sing.” “I didn’t know singing had an expiration date!” she says, unbothered by the remark. “As the years went by, I learned that there’s nothing more beautiful than a confident woman filled with knowledge, experience, and compassion for others.” For Geneva, you have to choose to be happy and know your worth. “Your best life doesn’t just happen; you have to choose to live it no matter your age.”
For Chelsea Robato opportunities are present at every age.
Thirty-one-year-old model and entrepreneur Chelsea Robato’s age anxieties come from her work environment. “I used to get anxious every year on my birthday,” she shares, fearing that growing older meant [fewer] opportunities. She also admits that she felt like she was settling instead of making herself better. “But my mom showed me it’s never too late to be successful, start a business, or try something new. Age is just a number, what matters is how you take care of yourself mentally and physically so you can enjoy any stage you are in life.”
Because celebrating your age and looking good are not mutually exclusive, use a product that will give you a boost of confidence and radiance. POND’S Age Miracle BB Cream Light enhances overall radiance while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex boosts collagen while preventing dryness.
Dani Barretto discovered that growing up can open new doors.
When she became a mom at 25, content creator Dani Barretto feared that she would lose her audience and projects. “At that time, I thought I was at my prime,” she says. “I used to think you can do more, achieve more when you’re younger. I was wrong. Motherhood gave meaning and purpose to my life. I’ve never felt this happy. Being a mom never slowed down my career, as a matter of fact, it made me who I am today.” Today, Dani celebrates her life and knows that growing older doesn’t have to mean being left behind.
For Ava Daza, it’s never too late to explore new passions.
At 31, Ava Daza is starting a new business and admits that age anxiety has hit her hard. “It’s a bit of risk for me to do. I feel like I'm past the age where I can be experimental,” she reveals. However, she knows that it’s important to catch oneself and recover from these thoughts.
She believes in going after your goals and trying things out. “I won’t say it’s been easy, but I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that the only thing permanent in life is change, so I’ve come to accept and even celebrate that aging is only natural.”

Verniece Enciso says if you have age anxiety, know that you’re not alone.
Content creator Verniece Enciso experienced a quarter-life crisis that made her take a step back and recalibrate her mindset on aging.
“For someone who didn’t use to care about timelines, I suddenly felt my age when I hit 25," she says, wondering if her audience would continue to relate with her and if there a limit to the content she could put out. After some reflection and with the help of friends, Verniece’s fear has been replaced with excitement and anticipation for good things to come.
Nicole Andersson believes in living life at one’s own pace.
Actress and influencer Nicole Andersson says that being so visible on social media can sometimes lead us to compare ourselves with others. “We see where people are at in their lives, and we compare it to where we’re at in our lives.
But who says life has a timeline or a manual that we can follow?” she says. Whenever people ask when she’s getting married, she always replies, “When I’m ready.” After all, she’s only 31. “I learned as I got older that we're all on our different journeys, and what success may look like to others might be different from what it looks like to you.”
Don’t sweat the small stuff like Nicole, not even wrinkles and crow’s feet. POND’S Age Miracle Eye Cream contains blur technology and retinol complex that work non-stop to brighten the skin around the eyes and make you look more awake and energized.
For Christiana Collings, growing old is a reality and a blessing.
When she was younger, Christiana Collings-Canlas felt pressured to become a career woman and a mother at a certain age. After giving birth, a friend asked if she felt that she’s past her prime. “I’m just getting started!” she replied. “Society has glorified youth so much; it’s no wonder young women are panicking at the first signs of aging. as if we’ll be less beautiful, less worthy with each line forming on our faces.” She thanks her mom for setting a good example on aging gracefully, and hopes to embrace growing older not just physically, but also mentally and spiritually.
The next time you notice fine lines on your face, embrace them! You can see them as signs of aging, or you can celebrate them as testaments to your full and happy life. #CelebrateYourAge
