You wouldn’t believe how old Pamela Jacobs really is. With her fine skin, fit figure, and luscious dark hair, Pamela is easily the envy of everyone in her age group.
Some say she’s in her late twenties or early thirties, but actually, Pamela is already 52 years old. She also has a 21-year-old son, Marly.
Because of her young looks, she was once mistaken as a student and has been offered discount.
“I was buying ticket to London and the cashier asked if I had my student rail card so I said I 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,” Pamela shared.
The same thing happened two years ago during a health screening, the nurse didn’t believe Pamela’s age was 50 until she saw the medical records.
Fifty-eight-year-old Stephanie Arnott headlined the Internet for the same reason before. She claims that she looks 35 and that her beauty “reduces men to tears.” Stephanie also says that she would wash car in a bikini.
Pamela, however, said that she wouldn’t do that (clean car in a bikini).
“There are some limits when you have a 21-year-old son,” Pamela Jacobs says. But she admits she still wears short shorts when in the garden.
Men don’t believe her when she tells them her age. Their usual reaction is, “I don’t believe you” or “You must be lying.”
Even younger men take notice on her. One time, a friend of her son saw them together and embarrassingly thought she was his girlfriend.
Although currently single, sorry, boys, Marly’s mom prefers men her age.
Despite the odd embarrassing situation, looking younger has no real negative impact.
According to Pamela, her youthful appearance is courtesy of her good genes (she claims her mother and siblings also look younger than their age), regular exercise, healthy diet, and coconut oil—plenty of it.
Pamela’s beauty regimen includes weekly sauna and steam, exfoliating her face every other day, and wearing her favorite sunscreen brand Korres. She chose the Greek brand because of its natural ingredients.
Healthy diet for her means leafy greens and coconut oil. She said the latter is responsible for her glowing complexion.
Her mother used to rub their skin and hair with oil when they were young and she kind of carried it on.
“I use Biona Organic Coconut Oil for cooking, in coffee, for removing makeup, for hair treatments, and on my body twice a day as a moisturizer.”
Wheat products are a no-no to her because they cause bloating. She also doesn’t eat fruits because of its sugar content.
“I follow the 80/20 rule,” she reveals. “80 per cent eating well and 20 per cent sneaking in the odd pudding, a little alcohol or organic dark chocolate.”
She suggests using organic products only if possible, such as pink Himalayan salt which, she uses in bath to help detox.
Overnight mask, regular body scrub, and generous application of coconut oil are a must for her as it softens her skin.
Lately, she has started investing in high-quality beauty products for they work better and last longer.
But according to Pamela Jacobs, to look young really is all about positive attitude and always wearing a big smile as it will never fail to give you a decade-younger look.
“I think the secret of eternal youth is to smile every day,” she says. “The best thing about looking young is that it makes me feel good and gives me confidence.
“I’m not perfect and have flaws like everyone else but I am grateful for what I do have,” Pamela remarked.
Here are just some of the tips Pamela has for women who want to look younger like her.
Pamela’s diet is a healthy one, more on vegetables and proteins like salmon.
Her South-Asian root is evident on her cooking as most of the dishes she prepares are Asian. She uses ginger, cumin, and turmeric, among others, because of their health benefits.
For her breakfast, she serves herself organic boiled egg with gluten-free toast or organic oatcakes and coconut yogurt with fresh berries and nuts. For her beverage, she likes coconut juice with liquid iron added to the drink to supplement her decreasing iron level, which is normal when women ages.
For her lunch, homemade salad is enough, usually a mixture of organic vegetables such as spinach, kale, rocket, cucumber, tomatoes, olives, red peppers, avocado, beansprouts, and pickled cabbage. She puts some fresh basil and coriander to add some flavor, and pumpkin and sunflower seeds to add some crunchiness. And to have a protein-rich meal, Pamela Jacobs adds Arbroath salmon, eggs and chicken, and dress her salad with lemon juice and organic oil.
Dinner is just as healthy. A small part of organic chicken, oily fish or a lamb steak served with a “mountain of vegetables.” Her favorites are broccoli and courgettes.
For her snacks, she eats plenty of almonds, celery, and hummus. One cup of coffee a day is also enough for her.
Almost everything she eats is organic. She also drinks plenty of water with a squeeze of lemon juice.
Pamela Jacobs attends fitness yoga session right after her body conditioning class, which is scheduled once a week.
She also avails of the gym’s facilities such as the sauna and steam room and gets whole body exfoliation while her hair is covered with mask.
“I’ll go in the sauna for 10 minutes, then have a freezing cold shower until the water stops,” she adds.
“I love it, it makes me so feel invigorated and I’m convinced it has helped to tone my skin. Then I will have 10 minutes in the steam and repeat the cold shower.”
To protect her mane, she uses Aveda’s Brilliant Hair protector.
To keep her hair soft, she applies Aveda’s all-natural Damage Remedy range or Inviati brand.
To prevent her hair from staying at the opposite direction(flyaways), Oribe Moisturising Cream and Moroccan Oil are what she uses.
For cleaning, she chooses either Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish because “it’s reasonably priced and effective” or coconut oil.
To nourish and maintain her skin’s health, she always uses Origins a Perfect World moisturizer, which has SPF25.
Other brands and products she uses for her skin care are Dermalogica Age Reversal eye cream, Omorovicza deep cleansing facial mask, and Dermalogica’s Power Recovery Mask.
To moisturize her skin, she uses coconut oil. She does it twice a day to keep her skin “incredibly soft and nourished.”
Using body brush before showering is also a must for her. She also prefers Sai Sei or Faith in Nature bath gel brands because they’re paraben-free.
And detoxes once a week using pink Himalayan salt crystals.
But no one can stop the clock from ticking. Pamela will turn 53 soon, and she is starting to notice some signs of aging. She said she’s feeling more tired than before. But one thing is for sure, she will still look the decades younger, nevertheless.
