Women are known to be expressive---they smile, they laugh, they cry at every milestone in their lives. However, a recent global study conducted by Pond’s showed that 78% of women hold their facial expressions back due to fear of being stereotyped and fear of their lines and wrinkles being seen in plain sight.
After all, according to Pond's resident skin expert, Dr. Anna Palabyab, "just like the muscles in our bodies, the more often we use them, the bigger and stronger they get! As we get older, we lose elasticity in our skin and wrinkles will from in the areas of the face that we usually use the most. These wrinkles usually form around the eyes, in the forehead, in between the brows, and around the mouth.”
But there's good news! Because with the right kind of prevention, women no longer need to worry about their lines and be able to freely express themselves. The secret lies in using products that have Retinol that stimulates the production of collagen and and retains skin elasticity, making it less prone to lines and wrinkles.
And with this, women everywhere can finally forget the lines and take the time to the share their beautiful stories with each other, living life with their full expressions.
So scroll down and be inspired by the stories of the Pond's Women as they share their favourite expressions and the stories behind them.
Iza Calzado For Fearless
“The most rewarding thing about being fearless is the transformation I go through when I take myself out of my comfort zone. Being fearless allows me to be anything I want to be and to achieve anything I set my mind to. When I finally achieve my goals, that's when I see the most beautiful version of myself emerge.”
Agoo Bengzon For Fabulous
"Being Fabulous knows no age and no boundaries. It's all about carrying yourself with confidence, knowing what looks good on you, experimenting with different styles, and knowing how to take care of yourself, especially your skin. Being fabulous is the foundation of beauty."
Cheska Kramer For Love
“When I became a wife, I realized even more how much I loved my husband. And when I had children, I discovered that I still had so much love to give, and there's still so much space in my heart. I'm never afraid to show my love for my family, because that is what defines me as a wife and as a mother.”
Apples Aberin For Passion
"I'm very passionate about my family and my work in public relations. I truly believe that I can make a difference in people's lives, that's why I give my all in every kind of endeavor that comes my way. I never do things half-baked. Passion is what drives me to do my best."
Rissa Trillo For Thrill
"Nothing thrills me more than challenging myself, going out of my comfort zone, trying something new, and getting what I want. I'm a perfectionist; failure is not an option. It's my best and worst trait, but this is what pushes me to do even more."
Vanessa Matsunaga For Confidence
"Confidence is the ability to believe in your most beautiful self. I'm able to do that because I know God has a plan for me. I may not be the best at everything, but he's given me everything I need to make a difference and become the most beautiful version of myself."
