Aging is natural. It happens to everyone. Some people bypass this for a while with fantastic genetics or dermatologists (…or plastic surgeons). But everybody ages, no exceptions.
So why is it such a big deal when a 45-year-old woman actually looks like a 45-year-old woman? Why is it that women are expected to act their age but look younger than they actually are?
If anyone has ever told you, “You look great… for your age,” you know what I’m talking about.
RoC®, the retinol giants of the skin care industry, wants to address the unrealistic expectations society has on women over 35.
EverBeautiful has an excellent review on RoC’s Retinol Correxion MAX Daily Hydration Creme (not to mention a very insightful forum on how society treats women who look their age).
This one is a highly recommended read!
“You Look Great for Your Age” is NOT a Compliment. ROC® Wants Us to Change the Conversation…
I received RoC® Retinol Correxion MAX Daily Hydration Creme to review for you. The following opinion about the product is my own. I have not been swayed by the receipt of product.
How many times has someone told you that “you look great for your age?” While the intention is well meaning, if you think about it, a compliment that is qualified is not really a compliment at all. Case in point: during a facial I had the other day, the aesthetician told me that I had beautiful skin and that she hoped to look as good as I do when she’s my age. I was taken aback, muttered a quiet thank you and spent the rest of the time fuming as her hands played over my face. I know she meant well, but her compliment landed like a lead balloon and left me feeling insecure and not at all complimented.
