This 50-year-old model could pass for 25 and we want to know her secret

Julia Horniacek is an independent freelance writer reporting beauty and fashion for SheKnows and, addicted to exercise, coffee and making an attempt to get outside her comfort zone.

Model and single mother of three makes 50 look like 25 (PHOTOS)

My goal in life is to age like Jennifer Lopez — just barely, with limited wrinkles and the ability to still maintain a killer body. While I am still figuring out the formula, Chinese model and former Miss Asia winner Candy Lo is defying time's inevitable effect on the human body.

Releasing a photo book entitled Timeless, the 50-year-old single mother of three could easily pass for a woman in her late 20s to early 30s.

It really is amazing when you consider just how dramatic of a difference there can be between two people of the same age, height, body mass, etc. I am a regular at my gym, eat healthy 90 percent of the time and yet I have a strong feeling that the odds of resembling a woman decades younger than myself when I am nearing the age of 50 are not in my favor. But they certainly were in the favor of Candy Lo.

Did I just hear the faint sound of a jaw dropping to the floor? That's what I thought.

It's no surprise that after a few teasers uploaded to Instagram, fans hardly hesitated to run out and make the Timeless purchase. All 3,000 copies have been sold. I'm thinking this would make quite the addition to any coffee table collection, alongside Kim Kardashian's Selfish book of selfies, of course.

Proceeds from Timeless will be donated to charities dedicated to assisting children and women who have been victims of, or who are currently experiencing, acts of domestic violence. While most are subject to believe that a book of self portraits is proof of vanity, Lo is using her beauty for the greater good.

Who knows what the future has in store for our ever-evolving looks but at least one thing is for sure. Whether or not we will bear wrinkles or see our bodies change once we turn the big 5-0, we're all beautiful in our own way. C'est la vie.
