A mother and daughter who people often mistake as sisters have shocked the world by revealing that they have an age gap of 23 years.
Joleen Diaz and her young teenage daughter Meilani Parks have a close relationship and have left people in disbelief because they spend so much quality time together. As per reports, the 43-year-old mom said that she preserved her young looks by sticking to a healthy lifestyle.
A healthy and active lifestyle
It was reported that Joleen said she always lived a proactive life and sticks to a balanced healthy diet. She also focuses strongly on her skincare and noted that the “anti-aging” effect started when she was only 12 years of age.
The school teacher revealed that she and her child have a close relationship and do many things together like shopping, working out and so on.
“I religiously take care of my skin, and every day [I] wash my face in the morning and before I go to bed. And the real secret? Start early. I began taking care of my skin at a young age, around 12 or 13. My mum used to buy Mary Kay and I would secretly use her skin care products.
A product that has shown dramatic change for me is Tretinoin. Most people know it as Retin-A. I’ve been using it now for about a year and a half, and I’ve seen my skin just get better and better.
I absolutely use sunscreen, every day, even on cloudy, rainy days. I also use a vitamin C serum day and night. Having good skin gives me confidence, even on the days I don’t look my best.”
Joleen added that Melaini does not mind them being called sisters because of the loving relationship they have. She said that Melaini was conceived when she was still very young.
Her good looks made her more confident
As per reports, the youthful mother added that looking good made her feel more confident. She said that she and Melaini have gone out partying and clubbing, and added that it is something that might not be repeated in the near future. Joleen continued saying that she has done her fair share of things and these days preferred to relax at home.
