Mum, 64, gets mistaken for 34-year-old daughter’s sister – thanks to her youthful looks

Angela also credits her good looks, adding: “My mum had beautiful skin and thick hair which runs in the family, so I had good genetics early on.

“Growing up in England with a lot of rain I didn’t have much exposure to sun which was a blessing really.

“I never smoked or drank much in my teens and twenties so that helped, and I was always big on getting adequate sleep.

“To me sleep is my number one health and beauty aid.”

The mum, who hasn’t eaten any kind of meat or poultry in 38 years, prefers several small meals a day.

For first thing in the morning, Angela enjoys fresh ginger with hot lemon and then limits herself to one coffee a day before noon.

She continued: “I don’t drink much alcohol but when I do, I prefer a little vodka than wine as it is cleaner and has less sugar. This maintenance has been my lifestyle for decades.

“I don’t believe in extremes, but I do know what works best for my overall health and wellness from a lifetime of consistent dedication that’s always been more about feeling good rather than just focusing on looking good.

“People often comment that my daughter and I look more like sisters than mother and daughter. On Instagram men are often over the top with compliments.

“But as I know that’s all superficial and not particularly ‘real’ I just don’t let myself get attached to flattery or judgement which is also part of being a public person on social media.”

Angela says she’s against the concept of cosmetic and plastic surgery.

She explained: “One: I want to look like myself naturally as best I can. Two: I try to avoid surgery of any kind as much as possible.

“Three: Vanity for me includes not having people wonder what I’ve done to myself if the surgery turns out strange and clearly like I’ve had some major work done.

“Four: There are many non-invasive and natural products and procedures that can help with ageing. For example, I do facial yoga every day to tighten the jowls and chin.

“Five: I feel that encouraging women – especially young women – to age naturally is part of the message I espouse and strive to live by.

“Apart from caesarean surgery the only cosmetic procedure I’ve done was to get braces on my teeth in my thirties.”
