A 44-year-old mother looks younger than her age and often gets mistaken for being her children’s sister.
Mum-of-three, Abigail O’Neill revealed the secret of her young appearance and you would be surprised to know that it is not because of expensive magic potion, but simply a completely natural and organic skincare routine that’s free of chemicals.
She said that she often gets mistaken as being a sister to her children, 25-year-old daughter Charlotte and sons Rory, 23, and Ryan, 20, instead of their mother.
Abigail is a model from Byron Bay in New South Wales, Australia, she uses edible household ingredients such as honey, sea salt, coconut oil and cocoa powder on her skin. She also incorporates other natural elements like fresh aloe vera, Epsom salts and an assortment of essential oils.
Abigail, who is married to builder Gerri, 55, said: “I have focused on an all-natural skincare routine for my whole life and I think that has helped me stay looking young.
“I get told weekly that I look like my children’s sibling. People are astonished when I tell them I am their mother.
“They’ll say things like ‘I never would have guessed you to have grown up kids, they look like your little brothers and sisters’.
“Whenever my daughter and I go out together, people always say we look like sisters. It happens all the time.
“We have a wonderful relationship, so I guess we are more like sisters in that sense.
“People always guess that I’m in my twenties. They are shocked when I tell them my real age.”
She occasionally wears makeup if she’s on a photoshoot, Abigail also said she usually goes completely makeup-free – something she feels has helped preserve her naturally glowing skin.
She said: “My skincare is 100 per cent totally natural, organic and cold pressed.
“Don’t underestimate its potency when it comes to delivering precious antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and probiotics. The best part is it’s all completely chemical free.
“The ingredients I choose to use on my skin are so utterly nature derived that they usually come from my own garden or organic kitchen.
“I do believe avoiding all those chemicals topically and using only organic ingredients on my face and body to have attributed to my flawless skin.”
She also follows a fresh and healthy diet, which mainly consists of raw, organic and plant-based foods. She also has a juice fast twice a year to help ‘re-set her system’.
She continued: “I’ve always lived by the mantra that you are what you eat. I love eating superfood-rich, organic and mostly raw plant-based meals.
“Because I’ve nourished myself so long with unprocessed, raw and organic foods, I don’t crave unnatural meals ever and never have a cheat day.
“I treat myself to raw cacao chocolate daily. It’s so revitalizing for the body and soul and is beautifying for the skin. It’s like taking a multivitamin.
“I like to seasonally juice fast a couple of times per year for detoxification, it makes me feel incredible and is a way to evaluate and reset my body.
“Hydrotherapy is a wonderful way to activate the body and skin. Even just a thirty-second blast of cold water at the end of your usual shower will boost your circulation and metabolism.”
“I may look young, and that’s very flattering but the soul is where we sparkle from. I think it’s how I feel on the inside that helps portray my youthfulness.”
