The winning question was from the host Steve Harvey and that was, Why is the most important lesson you have learned in your life and how would you apply it to your time as Miss Universe?

The answer left all the ones present there spellbound and proved that the pageant is not only about being beautiful but also having compassion for fellow beings and also having a meaningful purpose in life. She has created project Paraiso: The Bright Beginnings Project that helps raise money for a pre-school in the city of Tondo.

She replied, “I work a lot in the slums of Tondo, Manilla and the life there is very poor and it is very sad. I have always taught myself to look for the beauty in it, to look for the beauty in the faces of the children and to be grateful.

I would bring this aspect as a Miss Universe to see situations with a silver lining. And to ask where I could give something, where I could provide something like a spokesperson.

If I could also teach people to be grateful, we would have an amazing world where negativity would not grow and foster and where children would have a smile on their faces.”

After a point in time when life seems to be settled and the things that you once desired has been accomplished you try to search for new horizons. One such new horizon was. It was only a year ago that I started this journey and now the journey has become a part of my existence.

Now, this is something unbelievable and this is leaving people into shock. You won’t believe that a single mum from California, Joleen Diaz is constantly being mistaken for her 19-years-old daughter, Meilani Parks because they have 23 years of the age gap between them. And the best part is that a teenager doesn’t have any problem with this because they share a very close bond. Now you must be thinking how’s that possible and what’s the secret of Joleen’s beauty. Hold on! I am going to tell you about her beauty regime which has helped her to look so young and adorable.

Why do people get confused between mom and daughter always?

A mother and daughter duo who share a very close bond has made people confused about them. They spend so much time together and they look exactly replica of each other that no one can’t even guess their age or the difference between them. Mother is 43 years old and her daughter is just 19 years old, sees the huge age gap between them. And you know what’s the secret of this? Yes, it’s Joleen’s healthy lifestyle.

The school teacher also said that she and her daughter are so close to each other and do a lot of things together like shopping, working out, etc.

Well, that’s so sweet, her daughter Meilaini doesn’t mind when people get confused and compare them with each other. It’s because of the close bond they share. Joleen said that she has conceived Melaini at a very young age. If we talk about Joleen’s youthful appearance, she looks so young because of maintaining her skin with proper care.

Adding that she never forgets to wash her face every day in the morning and also before she goes to bed at night. Meilani is so lucky to use those skincare products used by her mom to take care of her skin the same way her mom does.

As per the reports, she said that tretinoin was a product that has to lead to a dramatic effect on her skin. She said owing to California’s sunny weather, she uses a sunscreen cream every day. The mother further added that looking good made her feel confident. Joleen said that she and daughter have never gone out to party or clubbing. The mother said that she has had her fair share of things and nowadays she preferred to stay at home and relax.

So, we have come to an end, what do you think after reading this? It already made him feel like purchasing lots of skincare products and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle like Joleen which seems impossible to me *wink*.

5 Important Teachings Given By A Strong Mother To Daughter

Well, this is so true God couldn’t be everywhere, therefore he created mothers and we feel blessed to have them. Mothers are like a role model for their daughters, they teach them every best thing possible. They teach you how to be independent, how to be confident, how to love and respect ourselves, how to raise your voice against wrong and many such things. Whatever we learn from our moms, that’s best. One can better understand that the bond between a daughter and mother is so close-knit which is that even brothers and fathers can’t understand it.

So, if your mom is strong and independent and you look up to her and follow her footsteps, then be sure to become like her. As a woman who herself is strong would always like to see her daughter grow up into a strong person.

If you have a strong mother, She will teach you the following things to be like her. Have a look.

Periods are the worst nightmare that we girls have to experience every month for a few days. They are even worse if they are heavy and painful. So, when you are on your periods, there are certain things which you should definitely not do if you want to end up your day on a happier note.

We love to keep our body smooth and clean all the time. But when you re on your periods. You should avoid yourself getting waxed, especially on your private part. Ask me why? This is because your skin becomes extra sensitive when you are on your period, so you should avoid this.

2. Don’t eat any salty food
