Have you ever noticed how people in their 40s and 50s are looking a lot younger than you’d expect? They say that the 40s are the new 30s, but now it looks like your 50s can also be your new 40s. Actually, scratch that. Your 50s might be your new 30s. Just ask Chuando Tan, a 51-year-old model and photographer from Singapore who seems to have defied the aging process and retained his youthful and oh-so attractive appearance. It seems impossible, but this guy certainly has certainly beat the clock, and as far as his secret to not aging goes, the answer is absolutely unbelievable.The photographer always manages to look spiffy when he goes out, even if he’s not modeling. There’s just something about looking great that comes naturally to Tan, and he’s eager to share his secret to the fountain of youth.
But it was only a few months ago that his photos went absolutely viral on his Instagram because people simply couldn’t believe that Tan was actually 51 years old.
Weighing 172 pounds, Tan is the embodiment of perfection, which he maintains by going to the gym five times a week for half an hour each session to stay in the best shape possible. Mission accomplished.
His hair is black, which he admits he dyes, as well as his facial hair. He’s also very trendy when it comes to fashion. His favorite thing to wear are Calvin Klein shirts, Topman trousers and Cole Haan shoes.
There are no beauty products touching Tan’s baby face because he finds that they irritate his skin. He also makes sure to treat his body like a temple so that his skin continues to radiate.
Aside from exercising, he also watches what he eats, but admits he doesn’t diet. What he will do is add eggs, chicken and fish in his soups, and he drinks lots of water, while avoiding things like alcohol, smoking, and coffee drinking.
It wasn’t long after a photoshoot with photographer Few Ow, that Tan earned himself thousands upon thousands of fans. He recalled that when he woke up one morning and saw the number of followers, he was shocked.
He’s gotten some haters along the way who claim that he should act his own age and not like a 30-year-old model, but he certainly brushes them off and strives to inspire his followers to eat healthier so they can stay young like him.
Yidian Zixun used some of his photos for an article that talked about how a then 50-year-old man looked 30 and the story went viral. Since then he’s gotten odd requests from people asking him to show other body parts, including his toes.
He also tried his hand at singing, but he was too shy so he moved on to opening up his own modeling agency named Ave. But now he’s back in the spotlight and his life revolves around his work, staying in shape, and being good to his friends. Oh, and in case you were wondering, he’s single.
