Meet Nicole – a 62-year-old beauty enthusiast as she shares her journey of transitioning into her 50s and 60s
Originally, Nicole is a Nurse who still has time to take good care of her skin despite her busy schedule of attending to patients. According to her, she spent almost 30 years of her life trying to balance her work life and her daily skin routine.
“I remember coming back from work and diving straight to shower. And there, I spend 30 to 45 minutes paying attention to my skin. Yeah, it became a habit”. -Nicole
Nicole enjoyed always being admired because of her ever-stunning and refreshed skin. But things started taking turns when she was approaching her late 40s to her early 50s. Of course, the human body starts to experience significant changes at this stage.
She started seeing strands of grey hair and slight wrinkles on her skin. Nicole once recalled how she sobbed in the shower. According to her, she had wanted to rewind the time to when she was younger and looked all youthful.
“Yeah, it wasn’t a good feeling, I remember seeing the first few strands (grey hair) and a bit of line on my skin. The whole reality dawned on me. I cried and wanted to cover it all up”. -Nicole
There and then, I resorted to wearing wigs or applying makeup to cover any signs of old age on my body. Things took a new turn for Nicole. She became more conscious of her body and less confident in herself.
However, everything changed for Nicole after she watched a TV program on women transitioning to an older age. She was a bit surprised to see older women sharing their experiences. According to her, only one word from the program stuck with her – “Focus on things you love about your body and learn to do what you love”
“I could never forget what happened that evening. Those words sunk deep into my soul. I was really, really inspired by those women and then, I discovered how I have been living in my shadows”. -Nicole
She described this stage as the turning point of her life. This was also when got connected with Gold Cosmetics. Nicole recalled that she couldn’t even remember when she stopped sobbing or being highly conscious of her body. She said “I could never have been happier”
Nicole recalled always putting on the Television to watch her favorite program whenever she comes back from work. I even got a dog in the process - she laughed.
Interestingly, I also started discovering some other interesting things I loved apart from work and my skincare routine. “I love spending time with my grandchildren, I love gardening, I love my TV programs, I love taking my dog for a walk, I love road trips. (laughs) Yes, I love spending some time in the pool on hot afternoons”. -Nicole
