“You look great…for your age” RoC® Encourages Us to Change the Conversation!

“You look great…for your age” 

"You look great...for your age." 
"I hope that I look that good when I am 40, too." 
"You look great considering you just had a baby." 
"You are so skinny, do you eat?" 

How many times have you heard comments like these or something else along these same lines? I have heard these many times and am always a little taken aback by them. It sounds like a compliment, but is it? While the intent may be positive, are phrases like these truly complimentary? I literally cringe inwardly whenever I am faced with one of these comments because it feels like a backhanded compliment and I never really know how to take it or how to respond. 

Apparently, I am not alone in these feelings, phew! RoC® points out that such misguided flattery is being directed toward women all too frequently - and they are sick of it. In fact, a majority of them would rather not be complimented at all versus receiving one paired with phrases of this nature.

To uncover the impact of negative words on women 40+, RoC® Skincare conducted a national survey with Wakefield Research and the results showed backhanded compliments can leave a greater impression than what’s seen on the surface. 

Study highlights include:
  • Women have been told they look good “for their age” typically every six weeks in the past year
  • 88% of New York women ages 40+ have been told they look “great for their age” in the past year; Of the cities surveyed, they are the most likely to hear this compliment. 
  • More than 60% of women have altered their behavior after being told their actions were not “age-appropriate”
  • However, 88% refuse to conform to societal standards set for women their age

Lets Change the Dialogue!
Are you sick of these comments, too? Let's flip the script on this dated conversation. 

I love how RoC® continually works to empower women. I have partnered with the brand for many years and have never been more proud to be an Ambassador for them. Not only are their skincare products amazing (and the best Retinol that you will find in a drugstore!!!), but also they have a genuine message of positivity for women. 

So, lets flip this script together! Please share your own examples of receiving compliments with the unwanted modifier "ForYourAge". Seeing these examples will inspire a positive dialogue. Lets define beauty on our own terms and without saying "for your age"! 

Lets just...
Look beautiful.
Look strong.
Look great. 
Period. 
(no "for your age" needed!!!)

While we are on the topic of looking great, I am super excited to announce that RoC® has a brand new product launch!


I am super excited about this new launch. RoC® is one of my major go-to brands for drugstore retinols. So, I am always eager and excited to try out their new products. This one is really going to fit  nicely into my routine as I am looking for products that provide a little bit more hydration for this time of year when the air is so dry. The product has everything that I am looking for: a powerful retinol formula and ingredients that promote deeply hydrated skin. 


RoC®'s NEW Retinol Correxion®  MAX Daily Hydration Creme reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots while leaving your skin looking hydrated and beautiful. According to RoC®, this formula is proven to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles in one week, with continued improvement afterward.


I am so excited to add the NEW RoC® Retinol Correxion®  MAX Daily Hydration Creme to my nightly routine. I know that my skin will thank me!

Don't forget, comment, FB post, tweet, or Instagram share with the hashtag #ForYourAge. Tell me your own examples of receiving compliments with the unwanted modifier "ForYourAge" to inspire a positive dialogue. Lets define beauty on our own terms and without saying "for your age"!
