Almost everyone wants to look a lot younger than what they actually are. While in the world of movies and imagination, this is totally possible, the age-old question goes “Is this possible in real life?”
The answer is, yes! It is! And Liu Yelin is living and breathing proof.
The 49-year-old mother of one looks so young that she led a lot of people to think that her son, who is in his 20s, is actually her boyfriend. Liu is 49. Is this real life?
“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.” she told Mail Online.
So now, you’re probably wondering; What is Liu’s secret? How does she look so young despite actually being almost 50? The answer is surprisingly simple; three years of regular exercise.
This is Liu with her son
You can see why people tend to think that they’re a couple.
And yet more proof
And if all of this wasn’t enough, she also wears hardly any makeup on all of these photos.
It’s easy to see why people would be shocked to find out here real age.
“Whenever I went shopping and told people my real age, I often got mobbed by strangers who wanted to find out my secrets”
“I swim in the lake and do weight training every day”
“My favorite thing is swimming outdoors in winter”
How does her body survive that?
The retired librarian has swum across the Yangtse 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!
Her motto is “If you think you look rough, that’s because you haven’t sweated enough”
I am still puzzled how someone can look amazing at the age of 49. I would also kill to have a body like this at the age of 50.
