Tennis superstar Venus Williams chose to spend her 40th birthday talking about her line of eco-friendly sun care products on her Instagram live.
On Wednesday, the American legendary tennis player turned 40 and decided to channel all the attention she will be getting to drive a conversation about her newly launched beauty products as the summer season begins.
The Instagram live, which featured herself and Sara Dudley, CEO of The Sunscreen Company, has earned 30,856 views and 242 comments. While Introducing Sara, Venus described her as one of her partners behind the formulation of the collection.
Venus Williams' phenomenal career is also embellished with having the most wins out of other players against her sister, Serena.
The sunscreen created in partnership with Credo beauty is an extension of her Eleven brand, and its Youtube page reports the products as the “Sun protection for every skin type and skin shade under the sun.”
It’s no surprise that for her first venture into skincare, she chose to launch two SPF products, On-the-Defense Sunscreen SPF 30 and Unrivaled Sun Serum SPF 35.
As a tennis player who spends hours under the sun on the court, she would have an understanding of the effect of sunscreens, and she says this much in a statement on the youtube page.
While Venus decided to commemorate her 40th with a live video dedicated to her new skincare line, news outlets took it upon themselves to celebrate her numerous achievements as a tennis pro.
ESPN shares that although the 40-year-old does not celebrate birthdays for religious reasons, they are spotlighting incredible moments during her robust tennis career and her legacy beyond the courts.
On their part, Tennis.com celebrated her ten most remarkable stats. Topping their list was her ownership of the title for the longest women’s victories in a row since 2000.
According to the outlet, Venus Williams' phenomenal career is also embellished with having the most wins out of other players against her sister, Serena, and to be the first African-American player, male or female, to reach No. 1 after her victory in 2002.
While Venus has, no doubt, achieved a lot in her career, she doesn't plan on retiring anytime soon according to Hollywood Life.
During an interview with the publication, she stated that she "got a lot of work to do on the court still" as every day encourages her to break the limit and surpass her records.
