How retired women believe in themselves again. Story from Poltava

The "No Age" charity project was launched in Poltava. Even the project's oldest participant, 90-year-old Motrona, gets a make-over. How they return the thirst for life, find out in our article.

A person can feel beautiful and attractive both at 16 and 95, you just need to want it. The number of years you've lived is never an obstacle. To prove it and give joy to people with most of their lives behind them, the "No Age" charity project is being implemented in Poltava for the third year in a row.


Wanting to be well-groomed and beautiful unites many women. Psychologists have long noticed that the reflection in the mirror plays a huge role in how a woman feels, both emotionally and physically. However, there's a phenomenon as a "retirement crisis." It's a feeling of loss and spiritual emptiness after retirement. A person loses meaning in life because before, everything revolved around work. Retirement for many symbolizes practically a sentence; the best period of life has passed, all that remains is to write oneself off, delve into home and garden chores, live only in the joys and successes of children and grandchildren.

Anna Boiko, the founder of the "No Age" project, says that youth lasts as long as you know how to rejoice, and any age after 60 can be the starting point for creating a new "me" — interesting, full of energy, beauty, and positive emotions.
