ZELLA COMPTON: Men – just aim it in the right direction and we’ll all be happy!

Have your say

I’ve always looked young for my age and that’s been a blessing and a curse over the years.

As I get older I embrace any opportunity where someone says I look young or I get asked for ID, which does still happen.

But I was astonished when I read an article this week about a 54-year-old woman who looks 35 and she really does.

I thought I had a youthful complexion, but this woman must have had zero stress in her life and bathed in almond oil for 20 hours a day to look like she does.

I couldn’t believe it.

Her name is Kim Carillo and she has two adult children and puts her youthfulness down to a good diet, exercise, sex and good genes.

I’m seriously impressed.
