1. Ageless Taiwanese Mother And Daughters Are Wowing The Internet
Her 41 year old daughter Lure Hsu ( on the right in the photo above ) made headlines for her youthful looks a while back, so Lure decided to share pics of the rest of the family, including her sisters Sharon ( on the left above, age 36 ) and Fayfay ( age 40, in the middle below ). Some think their youthful appearance is a product of airbrushing or that they're lying about their age, but take a look through Lure's Instagram account and you'll see there's no airbrushing necessary!
2. Which one is the Mom?
When Kaylan Mahomes posted a recent car selfie with her twin, Kyla, and their mother, the social media world went into confusion. The caption by the high schooler read, "Mom, twin and me." But because all three share the same youthful glow. It looks more like a picture of triplets. Everyone was trying to figure out which one is the mom.
Since it was posted January 28 the photo has been retweeted more than 18,000 times and received more than 29,000 likes. Some Twitter users have shared it along with the hashtag #blackdontcrack, an expression that refers to African, Americans whose smooth skin makes them look younger than their age. After seeing how much success their selfie garnered, the family created an Instagram page to share more images of the trio, who live in Indianapolis. But the big question remaind: Which young looking lady is the mom?
In an interview aired Friday on HLN, the trio put speculation to rest by revealing that the twins 'mother, Tina, appears to the far left in the photo. Asked by Christi Paul how she stays so well-preserved with two 16-year-old daughters, Mom broke down her methods. "I try to drink a lot of water, I try to stay stress free," the 35-year old said. "I just focus a lot on emotional inner beauty."
The family said they're mistaken for triplets "all the time."
"Even people who I know personally still don't know who's the mommy," Kaylan told HLN.
The pic was snapped when Mom was picking the girls up from school; Kaylan shared it with a friend and it went viral quickly thereafter. Even before the big reveal, the family's second Instagram post offered a crucial clue.

4. The 50 year old mother who has spent £10,000 on surgery to look like her daughter
With their flowing blonde hair, hourglass figures and slender, toned legs, they could easily pass for twins. Bot look fabulous in their matching polka dot dresses and, as Janet and Jane Cunliffe happily recount, potential boyfriends often struggle to tell them apart. Hardly surprising, as both weigh in 8st and, save for a couple of inches in height ( at 5 ft 6 in, Jane is two inches taller ) and different eye colours ( Jane's are brown, Janet's are blue ) they are virtually identical.
But Janet and Jane are not twins. They are not even sisters. They are mother and daughter. And, in what many will see as a depressing indictment of today's youth obsessed society, Janet confesses to having spent more than £10,000 on plastic surgery in a desperate effort to bridge the 22-year age gap between herself and her daughter.

5. 52-Year-Old Woman Looks So Young She’s Mistaken for Her Son’s Girlfriend
Pamela Jacobs, a dusky beauty from the UK, doesn’t look a day over 25. But you’ll be shocked to learn that the woman is actually 52, and has a 21 year old son! In fact, she appears so young that she is often offered student rail fares and no one believes her when she reveals her real age.
“Men do comment on my looks and say things like ‘I don’t believe you’ or ‘You must be lying,’” she said. “ I always say, what woman would actually add years on?” Her son is mortified with all the attention she receives though, because people often think she’s his girlfriend. “A while ago, someone my son knows thought I was his girlfriend,” Jacobs laughed. “And some people I know have thought the same in reverse.”
“It’s flattering, but I prefer men of a similar age to me,” she quickly added.
Apart from the mild embarrassments, Jacobs says there are no downsides to looking younger. Once, she was buying a ticket to London and when the cashier asked for her student rail card, she said she didn’t have one. “He then asked if I wanted to apply for one so I had to tell him that I wasn’t a student and what my real age is. He went a bit red,” she recalled.
During a health screening a couple of years ago, the nurse refused to believe that Jacobs was 50, and insisted on verifying her medical records. “She was amazed at how young I looked – and also that I still had a waist,” Jacobs said.
She attributes her youthful appearance to a healthy diet, plenty of exercise, and – get this – coconut oil. She also takes good care of herself with a weekly sauna and steam, exfoliates her face every two days, and never leaves the house without sunscreen. But lots of women do all that and more, never managing to look quite as young as Jacobs. It’s probably because she has good genes too. Jacobs admits that her mother and all her siblings look young for their age.
“I’m a big coconut oil lover,” she said. “My mother used it on our hair and skin when we were younger and I’ve carried on. I use Biona Organic Coconut Oil for cooking, in coffee, for removing make-up, for hair treatments and on my body twice a day as a moisturizer.” She also stays away from wheat products such as breads and pasta, because they make her bloated. Jacobs doesn’t even eat fruit because of the high sugar content, but includes everything else in her diet, especially leafy greens.
Being of South Asian origin, a lot of the dishes she prepares at home are Asian, spiced with ginger, cumin and turmeric, which she says are like supplements. Her breakfast consists of a boiled organic egg with gluten free toast, or organic oatcakes and coconut yoghurt with berries and nuts. She finishes the meal off with a glass of coconut water with added liquid iron. For lunch, she eats a big homemade salad with organic spinach, kale, rocket, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, avocado, beansprouts and sauerkraut, with salmon, eggs or chicken for protein. Dinner is equally healthy, and she snacks on handfuls of almonds, or celery with hummus.
Her coffee intake is restricted to once a day. “I follow the 80/20 rule,” she revealed. “80 percent eating well and 20 percent sneaking in the odd pudding, a little alcohol, or organic dark chocolate.” Some of her other health tips include avoiding chemicals, and using pink Himalayan salt in her bath once a week to detox.
6. This photo of two women has sent the Internet into overdrive but are YOU shocked?
Initially, you may think you are looking at a picture of two young women posing happily for the camera. The tow girls hold each other close, making you think they are friends or even family. But the reality has caused the Internet a lot of surprise. The two girls are actually mother and daughter. The girl on the left, in a short dress and turquoise heels, is just 18 years old. Even more shocking, her mother is 36 years old. The mother looks deceptively young in a cropped top and maxi skirt, flaunting a tattoo on her left arm. You'd think the pair were almost the same age.
With the extensive use of Photoshop and other editing software, it’s extremely difficult to tell the difference between real and fake these days. But if the photographs of this Japanese model are to be believed, then she couldn’t be a day over 20. Believe it or not, Masako Mizutani’s real age is 43, and she’s a mother of two. Her age-defying looks have become a sensation in Japan, especially on TV. She’s being called ‘Japan’s Lady of Eternal Youth’.
Now, I’ve always felt that Asians, especially the Japanese, have beautiful skin that doesn’t seem to age very much. Even so, Masako clearly stands out from the rest of her countrymen. In the pictures, her skin looks unbelievably soft, supple and practically flawless. During her TV appearances last month, Masako revealed a few of her beauty secrets to the world. She supposedly spends five hours a day just taking care of her skin. Her tips include: drinking plenty of water to flush out toxins, eating a fresh, healthy and balanced diet, using vitamin E based creams, sunscreen, cleansing, toning, moisturizing, plenty of sleep and no smoking. Well, to tell you the truth, these tips are generic beauty advice that’s being dished out ever since I can remember. Unless she has some other secrets, they seem to be doing wonders in her case.
A few people have started to wonder about the authenticity of Masako’s online photographs. They say that there’s a marked difference (of at least 10 years) between her TV self and internet self. Photoshop, much? Well, there’s no real way to tell. Even so, Masako does look pretty youthful on TV. There’s also a saying that Asian women look great and youthful until menopause – which is when they seem to age almost instantly, overnight. But for now, Masako certainly does seem to be the Lady of Eternal Youth. Maybe we’ll just wait and watch how the ‘eternal’ part develops.
Some of you may say she doesn’t look that good for her age, but it’s important to note that Masako also has a 20 year old daughter. I think that is important to consider because it’s a known fact that raising kids takes its toll on the body. Still this Japanese housewife could pass as her daughter’s sister any day.
But Masako Mizutani isn’t the only woman to cause Internet controversy over her youthful appearance. A while back, we featured the story of Annette Larkin, a 70-year-old woman who doesn’t look a day over 40. Like Masako, she drinks a lot of water (rain water, to be precise) and also follows a vegan diet.
Naturally, everyone wants to know how she’s maintained her relatively youthful looks and good health. “There is no big secret,” she told the Sunday Times’ Style magazine. “All I have ever done is eat organic food – long before it became trendy. I take oil and use it on my skin: I put rapeseed oil on my hair. I scrub my skin once a week with olive oil and fine sugar. I eat an avocado a day and organic meat and fish.”
In addition to her successful modeling career, Rossi is also a photographer and an advanced ceramist. Check out her website to see more of her work!
