They say life starts at 40. I’ve always imagined what my life could be at 40. I’m just 28 and to be honest, I’m scared to even enter my 30’s. I felt some relief though after hearing Charlene Gonzales-Muhlach, the ambassador of the newest Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift line, speak about her age at the recent Pond’s luncheon I attended last week at Chef Jessie.

“When a great experience happens to you at a young age, you don’t want it to become the defining moment of your life—or worse, the peak when you still have so many years ahead of you,” she explains. “The questions on my mind were—What’s next? What more can I do?” Because Charlene attained such a huge and successful milestone in her life at the age of 19, it caused her to worry. 

But instead of getting paralyzed by her fears, Charlene chose to move forward beyond her Miss Universe moment. “I believed that the best was yet to come, so I prepared and improved myself for the best years ahead,” she said. She persisted to find new ways to succeed—whether it was through pursuing further studies in Harvard or even being the best wife and mother to her two beautiful children. Even until now, Charlene shows her drive for self-improvement. 

"I’d like to believe that my beauty has also blossomed over time,” says the Charlene. Just how did she manage to do this? It’s simple—by consistently taking care of herself. “I eat healthy, exercise, and more importantly, I take care of my skin and beauty.” A new constant in Charlene’s beauty arsenal is the New Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift.

“I love the tightening effect it has on my skin–most especially my neck and jawline, called the Y-Contour” says Charlene. “Some people think that you only have to worry about wrinkles, but the more advanced sign of aging as you approach 40 is loose skin and sagging. New Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift strengthens skin from inside, so you can look up to 10 years younger with a firmer, lifted Y-Contour.” 

The Pond’s Institute acknowledges that the lower half of the face—the neck, the jawline—also known as the Y-Contour, can reveal one’s true age. This delicate part is prone to loose skin and sagging. It is important to preserve the Y-shape, like it’s your fountain of youth. For a firmer, lifted Y-Contour, you need a product that specifically offers targeted firming and lifting action to strengthen your skin. “I love how Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift gives you the power to shape your youth in your own hands,” says Charlene. New Pond’s Age Miracle Firm & Lift is composed of a 3-product skincare regimen.
