Sometimes people just have incredible genes…and it’s just not fair!

Such is one woman from California who seems to have cracked the aging code. She looks so young, that many people often mistake her for the sister of her own 20-year-old daughter.

This is Meilani Parks.

She’s a twenty-year-old student from Northern California.

And this is Joleen Diaz.

She’s a forty-three-year-old elementary school teacher and the mother of Meilani.

Hard to believe that there is a 23-year-age gap between the two.

So, what on earth is Joleen’s secret?

Escaping the cold ☀️

A post shared by Joleen Diaz (@joleendiaz) on

Well, she attributes her unbelievably youthful appearance to ‘clean living‘ and specific beauty regime.

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.

Meilani also follows the same rigorous routine as her mother, starting around age 12.

Joleen states that having good skin gives her a boost in confidence, which in return allows her to maintain a positive lifestyle!

And there is nothing wrong with that!

And her last tip:

“‘I’m pretty pragmatic and try not to worry too much about the past or anticipate worries in the future.”
