Even though the mom has been offered student discounts and has been mistaken as her 21-year-old son's girlfriend (awkward), she is actually 52 years old. Yes, really.
For one thing, she has this flawless complexion and great body. Although she says, part of it is due to genetics, she also works hard to look the way she does. Aside from eating healthy and exercising regularly, she swears by one ingredient that helps her maintain her youthful appearance – coconut oil.
Pamela says that she uses coconut oil for everything, including salad dressing, sweetener in her coffee, removing makeup, hair treatments, and body moisturizer.
Coconut oil takes an important part of her beauty routine – she uses it as a body moisturizer twice a day, as a makeup remover, and for body brushing once a week. She also applies in generously on her face before going to bed and leaves it on overnight. After this, her skin looks rejuvenated in the morning.
Ms. Jacobs started using coconut oil when she was young. As for her diet, she follows the 80/20 rule, meaning that 80% of her diet is healthy organic foods, and the remaining 20% is not-so-healthy – pudding, alcohol and chocolate, but dark organic.
She avoids bread, sugar, pasta and fruit, but loves green leafy vegetables, water with lemon, protein foods, turmeric, ginger and pepper …
She works out on a regular basis and showers with cold water after going to the sauna.
Why is coconut oil so good?
There’s no question coconut oil is one of the most health-beneficial foods on the planet. In fact, it’s much more than a food. With its unique combination of fatty acids, mostly medium chain fatty triglycerides, coconut oil has some amazing medicinal properties. These triglycerides are transferred from the liver into the digestive tract, where they are used as a quick source of energy rather than being deposited as fat reserves.
