Michelle Silva is a content creator who shares the “anti-aging tips I’ve learned in the beauty industry” with her almost 60K followers on her TikTok account @therealmichellesilva. She looks much younger than her age, 48.

The content creator asked her fans: “What is the secret to looking 15 years younger than your age?” She told followers that there is a formula as to how to look younger, in her opinion. To look younger, she claims, you need to pay attention to a combination of factors.

Michelle said: “I’m 48 but I feel like I look like I’m in my 30s, and that is not a flex, that’s anti-ageing at its best. I’m convinced that there’s a formula to the fountain of youth.”

The anti-ageing guru admitted that genetics do play a factor, but they aren’t everything when it comes to looking 15 years younger, and neither is just skincare and treatments.

She said: “I’m living proof. It’s not genetics, but good genes help. It isn’t simply skincare although you do need a skincare regimen to have beautiful skin.

“And it’s not just Botox. I love Botox. It does a great job of softening wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming. I actually have an appointment next week. Keep in mind that you can still look like a 40 or 50-year-old who’s gotten Botox I’m talking about looking 15 years younger.”

So what is the secret to looking as youthful and fresh as Michelle? she told her followers: “It’s a combination of preserving the skin, preventing extrinsic ageing, which is when premature ageing sets in long before it’s supposed to.
