Woman's powerful post about anti-aging going viral

A brave, honest post about beauty and aging is going viral with four little but impactful words resonating with women across the world.

Aging is a privilege.

The story starts when one woman named Annick is approached by a beauty rep at an airport kiosk in Canada who was trying to sell her an anti-aging cream.

He takes aim at the fact that she's aging - whatever that means - and pitches her products for wrinkles, smiles lines and undereye bags.

Her response is golden.

"What's wrong with my eyes? I have a miracle baby at home and haven't slept in 2 years, so if I have bags I am grateful to have them, and my husband and I laugh a lot. Those are his fault. He loves how I look... I don't think I need your cream," she writes.

She proceeds to remind him that she loves how she looks and will continue to do so at any age, adding that "this is the face my children and my husband love. I think I'll keep it."
