Is it possible to look half your age? Most definitely! And Liu Yelin is walking proof. She's almost 50 but she looks so young that people think her 22-year-old son is her boyfriend and who can blame them? She's had no plastic surgery but of course, has her own secrets to share. Let's see what she does to stay so young!
The Chinese mother of one, who rarely wears makeup, is nearly 50 years old yet looks so young.
Without a wrinkle in sight and a super-toned body, Liu is constantly stunning people with her looks.
“People are often shocked to find out I’m almost 50.”
“Whenever I went shopping and told people my real age, I often got mobbed by strangers who wanted to find out my secrets.”
So, what is that secret of hers that makes her look as young as her son?
Regular exercise for three decades of course!
“I swim in the lake every day...
and do weight training,'' she says.
“My favorite thing is swimming outdoors in winter,” she adds.
In fact, Liu has swam across the Yangtze River in China and the Han River in South Korea.
And last year, she swam from the shores of Penang, Malaysia to the Strait of Malacca – that’s a whopping 7.45 miles in just 4 hours!
The super-fit mom now has over 75k followers on a Chinese social media site called Weibo and lives by the motto: “If you think you look rough, that’s because you haven’t sweated enough.”
