Woman says her daughter, who is 20 years younger, is being mistaken for her sister
Lauren Marsden, 20, and her mother Cheryl Jarvis, 41, from Bradford, Yorkshire, have been mistaken for sisters since Lauren turned 18.
Lauren says strangers constantly comment on how similar they look, with many assuming they are siblings. Cheryl, project manager, said she finds it hilarious.
She said, “Strangers can’t believe it’s Lauren’s mother. They are always in shock and think we are siblings. It’s flattering and nice to know I look young.”
The mom of two, explained that Lauren has been a big help in keeping her looking young and healthy. “Lauren definitely helps me stay young, as she gives the best fashion tips and shows me what beauty products to buy.”
“Her makeup bag is much bigger than mine, so I prefer it when she gives me a makeover. She’s actually a better makeup artist than I. It’s great as she shows me what to wear and how to apply it!”
A key part of her lifestyle, says Cheryl, is her strict exercise regimen, which is vital to her youthful appearance. “I get up at 5 a.m. to exercise, five times a week. And I help other women, as I’m a personal trainer.”
She has also been getting Botox injections for several years, although she took a break during the lock-in.
“I’ve been getting it for about three years, but I’ve had a year off due to coronavirus blockages. I’ve also been using Dermalogica products for the last 20 years; they’re expensive but definitely worth it.”
And Cheryl describes her daughter as her best friend. She said, “She tells me everything and vice versa. She had Instagram before Lauren, but her account exploded when she started posting.
