Edson Brando, a 54-year-old man from the Netherlands, regularly gets mistaken for his step-daughter’s boyfriend because of his youthful appearance. According to Brando, people are constantly telling him he looks more than half his age and while out with his step-daughter, some even question their relationship.
Brando said being confused for his step-daughter’s boyfriend is embarrassing for everyone involved.
Still, there is an upside to his youthful appearance. Since joining social media, he has become a bit of a micro-influencer on Instagram. He now uses the platform to share his secrets to looking young and fit. Brando insisted that he stays young by maintaining a positive mindset, good nutrition, a good skincare routine, and regular exercise.
The 54-year-old also said he has never had plastic surgery to alter his appearance.
“I am the eldest of my brothers, with the others aged 52, 28, and 27. At family reunions, people ask my father whether I am the youngest son. Once when traveling, I was flagged by the order police in Switzerland as they didn’t believe that I was forty at that moment.” Brando, according to The Mirror, said.
“They took my passport and checked it; they were surprised the passport belonged to me and wasn’t a forgery. The police asked me what I did to look so young,” he added.
Brando said he doesn’t have any hidden tricks when it comes to his age-defying looks. On his Instagram, he often reminds his followers that he simply maintains a healthy lifestyle and does not smoke or consume drugs.
His diet consists of a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and protein. He also opts for organic produce whenever possible.
Additionally, Brando said enjoying life’s pleasures, including s*x, travel, and dessert, has also contributed to his youthful glow.
For anyone looking reap similar results, Brando said smiling and positive thinking is a great place to start.
