Mum, 43, mistaken for daughter, 19, in age-defying similarity
A 43-year-old mother has revealed the “secret” to her youthful looks after being mistaken as her daughter’s sister. Can you tell them apart?

An age-defying mum and her daughter have revealed how they regularly get mistaken for sisters despite their 23-year age gap.
Schoolteacher Joleen Diaz, 43, and daughter Meilani Parks, 19, from California, not only look extremely similar in age, but also enjoy an enviably close relationship.
Single mum Joleen puts her youthful glow down to good old-fashioned clean living and she said she started taking care of her skin when she was just 12-years-old.
“I’ve always lived a healthy, active lifestyle. I rarely drink alcohol, I get a lot of rest, and eat a balanced, healthy diet,” Joleen said.

“I religiously take care of my skin and everyday wash my face in the morning and before I go to bed.”
The mum and daughter enjoy a tight bond and teenager Meilani is flattered when people mistake them for sisters.
“I don’t think she minds. We are very close. We do lots of things together — travel, shop, work out,” mum Joleen said.
“And sometimes just lay on the couch and talk.
“While she was growing up, she would often hear people tell me they thought my mother was my sister.
“I was pretty young when I had her, so it’s not entirely impossible that we could be sisters.”

‘SECRET’ TO AGE-DEFYING LOOKS
Joleen also said one of the secrets to her looking the same age as her daughter was starting early with skincare.
“Living in California, sun protection is naturally key,” the Californian mum explained.
“I absolutely use sunscreen, every day, even on cloudy, rainy days. I also use a vitamin C serum day and night.”
Joleen has already started Meilani on the same rigorous routine.
“Having good skin gives me confidence, even on the days I don’t look my best,” she said.

In addition to products, Joleen reckons a generally relaxed attitude is also key to staying youthful. Picture: JamPressSource:Jam Press
In addition to products, Joleen said a generally relaxed attitude is also key to staying youthful.
“I’m pretty pragmatic, and try not to worry too much about the past or anticipate worries in the future.”
Joleen and her partner split up amicably 13 years ago — but the family still get along, and regularly holiday together.
“I live a pretty simple life and I’m content with what I have,” Joleen said.
Despite her youthful looks, Joleen isn’t one to tag along with her daughter to clubs or parties.
“Meilani and I have never gone clubbing or partying together. And I don’t foresee us doing that anytime in the near future.”

But the pair do other things together, from shopping to working out. Picture: JamPressSource:Jam Press
“I’ve had my share of doing both — these days I’d rather stay home, drink a nice cup of hot tea, and watch a good movie.”
Social media users have been quick to share their confusion with many in disbelief at the reality of the relationship.
“If you’re her mum … You are officially the hottest mum in the world!” one Instagram user commented on a photo of the youthful looking mum.
“Are you really a mum???” a second stunned user asked, while another said: “Who had who at this point”.
If I met the mother I'd probably have assumed she was somewhere below 23 years old.
I'd say close up, she would look older than that. I would peg her as one of those older birds that stays fit, but still not older than early 30s. They look latina with maybe a hint of filipino?
Asian women can look that young until around 40, but it usually gets correct during the following decade. Having said that, my MiL is about 65, and, whilst she's no longer a stunner (I've seen photos of her from her early 20s and my FIL punched well above his weight), she would have no shortage of gentlemen callers if something was to happen to my dear father in law.
Yeah very true. I've worked with some Asian women in their 40's that have been at the start of the slide. I bumped into one last year that recognised me. She looked 20 years older in the space of around 6 years.
Yep they look 16 till they are 40 then look between 100 and rotten
Their skin tends to hold up well, but at some point their cheeks take on a dimension of width similar to the length of Nathan clearies chin and the weight can suddenly pile on.
Mrs CD is 42. You take that back!
(Actually, she has Kind of aged since we had our first kid at 40. I think its because she decided to stop dying her hair...)
A lot of African women seem to keep great skin. Maybe blemishes just don't get noticed on darker women?
As my African American friend says "Black doesn't crack, they just smoke it"
Lol... reminds me of this (pretty acurate actually!)
