Gail told FEMAIL that she has a skincare routine that includes removing makeup before bed, but thinks the secret to her youthful appearance is in her genes.
“I attribute my youthful appearance to my mother. She’s 71 but could pass for 60 ‘, she explained. Gail also has a more trendy style than many moms, sharing photos of her looks with her 76,000 Instagram followers.
“You could say my personal style is more of a city chic, working woman,” she continued. “I don’t dress like your typical mom in sweatpants and t-shirts. I always enjoy watching each other when I am in public. ‘
Gail explained that her looks became more noticeable when she turned 40, as it is the decade that many women notice dramatic signs of aging.

She said, “I think it gets clearer once I turn 40 because many 40-year-olds are starting to wrinkle and they are showing signs of old age.
“I haven’t developed wrinkles and my face still has a youthful appearance, so it’s hard to guess my age. Many people think I’m actually 25, at most 30. “
She continued, “When I went to the store today to pick up wine, the owner looked at my driver’s license and told me he thought I was 25.”
TikTok users shared their disbelief at Gail’s age and took over the comments to jokingly demand that she show her birth certificate.

One posted: “If you told me you were 21, I wouldn’t even question it.” Another wrote, “My jaw is on the floor!”
A third added, “Be proud that you age wonderfully. Old enough to know and still look good. ‘
A fan added, “I really thought you were my age … and I’m 22!”
She offered her advice to other women her age to look stylish yet age-appropriate, adding:I believe something like this looks too young as a middle-aged mother. You can be stylish and keep it tasteful.
“You won’t find me everywhere in shorts and skinny tops. I want my children to still respect me as a mother. There is nothing wrong with wearing and accessorizing a midi dress while still looking stylish and classy. ‘
