Christina Aguilera is undoubtedly a huge pop icon who has been in the limelight for over two decades. She first entered the scene as a child star at the age of 6 and has since then become one of the most successful and iconic singers of her generation. She has sold over 75 million records worldwide and won numerous awards, such as five Grammy Awards.
However, her journey has not been without challenges. Aguilera has always been scrutinized for her appearance, with critics unfortunately often commenting on her weight, fashion choices, and more recently, signs of ageing.
But Aguilera has always been resilient and determined to stay true to herself. She even wrote a Grammy-winning anthem about self-acceptance, 2002’s “Beautiful,” which became an anthem for many people struggling with body image issues. Aguilera has always been a champion of self-love and acceptance, encouraging her fans to embrace their unique beauty and not succumb to societal pressures. Now, at the age of 42, she is continuing to stay authentic to herself while exploring products that make her look and feel her best.
In a recent interview with People, Aguilera revealed that she has partnered with Xeomin, an anti-wrinkle injection used to improve the look of frown lines. It’s her first-ever injectables collaboration, and she has stepped in as a brand partner for Xeomin’s empowering ‘Beauty on Your Terms’ campaign. Aguilera says that she’s always interested in finding new products that excite her and make her feel her best, and Xeomin felt like the safest way to go because it doesn’t have any extra ingredients. She believes that it’s essential to have reassurance that no matter how tired she may be, she has a backup.
Aguilera’s foray into the “smart tox” space has not only given her added confidence but also helped her maintain a more “natural look,” something that’s top of mind for her as a singer and performer. “We like expression, especially in my line of work,” she says. “I don’t want to have a frozen face. Whether it’s being on-camera or performing onstage, I have to stay authentic to my emotion.”
Aguilera’s partnership with Xeomin has garnered some criticism, with some people arguing that it sends the wrong message about aging and beauty.
However, Aguilera believes that viewing aging as a negative is a super old-school approach. She says that she’s seen herself go through different stages of her life and complain about certain things. As she’s gotten older, she’s looked back and realized that every stage is a new era. She’s really into feeling more self-assured as she gets older and believes that’s the thing to truly embrace.
Aguilera thinks it’s harmful when ageing becomes an obsession, and that everybody has a different outlook on how they want to age. It’s a very personal conversation, and what works for some people might not work for others.
