Joleen Diaz, a 43-year-old woman from California has been dubbed “the world’s hottest mom” on social media, with millions commending her for her incredibly youthful looks, which often get her and her 19-year-old daughter confused for siblings.
An elementary school teacher, Joleen says she does not mind getting mistaken for her daughter’s sibling, and neither does the younger woman.
Joleen had Meilani when she was very young, so it is not entirely possible to believe that they could be sisters; plus, while growing up, Meilani would always hear people tell Joleen they thought her mother was her sister, so she is used to it.
Still, the 43-year-old looks pretty incredible for her age, which she attributes to her religious skin care.
“I religiously take care of my skin, and every day wash my face in the morning and before I go to bed,” Joleen said in a recent interview.
“I began taking care of my skin at a young age, around 12 or 13. My mom used to buy... I would secretly use her skin care products. One product has shown dramatic change for me... I’ve been using it now for about a year and a half, and I’ve seen my skin just get better and better.”
“Having good skin gives me confidence, even on the days I don’t look my best,” Joleen added.
The single mother said she had Meilani start the same rigorous skincare routine when she was 12, to make sure that she had the same radiant skin.
But skincare is only part of what makes Joleen look so young. She also works out, follows a balanced, healthy diet, gets plenty of rest, and above all, she maintains a laid back attitude, not worrying too much about the past or the future.
“I’m pretty pragmatic, and try not to worry too much about the past or anticipate worries in the future,” the 43-year-old said. “I live a pretty simple life and I’m content with what I have.”
Photos of Joleen and Meilani recently went viral on social media, leaving many with their mouths open on learning that these were not twins but mother and daughter.

“She is so hot. Trust me if she told me she is her sister, I will not argue,” said one social media user. “How do such women manage to look that young? Or she used some injectable stuff that keep her that glowing?” wondered yet another.
She has been talk of social media, and some women are now asking her for secrets to keeping their skin and looks youthful.
