It happens regularly that people completely lose the jaw when they find out that Joleen Diaz and Meilani Parks from northern California are not sisters.
in fact, there are 23 years between the two women, who are mother and daughter.
In an interview with Jam Press, which, among other things the Daily Mail has quoted, tells the 43-year-old mother and primary school teacher, Joleen Diaz, that a large part of the reason that she in many people's eyes, looks just as young as his 19-year-old daughter, is that she is very in to care for her skin.

- I wash my face every day morning and before I go to bed. I began to care for my skin at a young age, around 12-13 years of age, tells Joleen Diaz, who has given the good habit on to her daughter. She was also around 12 years old, when she began to go up in the care of the skin.
But it is not only skin products, which means that the 43-year-old mother often gets shot to be much younger than she is. It is also due to several other healthy habits.
- I have always lived a healthy, active life. I drink rarely alcohol, I get plenty of sleep, and I eat a balanced, healthy diet, " says Joleen Diaz to Jam Press.
She and Meilani Parks have always been very close, and it is often when travelling, shopping or the coach together, that they are experiencing people who find it difficult to understand that the two women are not peers.
- We are very close. We do many things together, " says Joleen Diaz, who do not believe, Meilani Parks have something against the confusion around their age.
As she grew up, she heard people often say to me that they thought my mother was my sister. I was pretty young when I got her, so it's not entirely impossible that we could be sisters, believes the 43-year-old single mother.
