When people see Pamela Jacobs (UK, 52, originally from South Asia) for the first time, they think that she has about 30 years. But, her identity card shows even 22 years more! Pamela looks almost perfect even at the age of 52.
Her complexion is flawless and her body is handsome due to genetics, as well as care in which she invests heavily. She says that she eats healthy food, exercises a lot, but one of the main things that should be praised for her appearance is coconut oil!
She applies it twice a day on the whole body as a moisturizer, removes make-up with it, and once a week brushes her body with it, as well as bathes in detoxifying bath with Himalayan salt.
She has started using coconut oil in her diet since she was little. She applies a large amount of coconut oil on her face before going to bed and sleeps with the mask. Her skin is reborn in the morning!
She even has a problem with people because they often think that she is actually the girlfriend of her son who is 21 years old!
Many younger men court her, but Pamela loves the older ones. Many people even think that she is a student. Last time she wanted to buy a ticket to London, she was offered to use a discount for students!
She follows the 80/20 rule in her diet, which means that 80% of her diet is healthy organic foods, and 20%, is not-so-healthy. That’s pudding, alcohol and chocolate, but dark organic.
She avoids bread, sugar, pasta and fruit, and loves green leafy vegetables, water with lemon, protein foods, turmeric, ginger and pepper …
She exercises regularly and goes to the sauna followed by a shower with cold water.
Why is coconut oil so good?
Coconut oil can truly be described as a super-food.
