48-year-old women credits veganism for her youthful looks

A 48-year-old vegan says she looks better now than she did in her 20s, and credits her vegan diet for her youthful looks.

Victoria Featherstone Pearce from east London is regularly mistaken for being in her late 20s. She believes it’s due to plant-based eating, no alcohol and cruelty-free skincare routine.

She turned vegan 15 years ago, at 33, after learning about the “dark side of the dairy industry”.

The model and charity owner has never had botox and believes her lifestyle choices have impacted her appearance.

PIC BY CATERS NEWS (PICTURED Victoria Featherstone Pearce) A youthful 48-year-old is praising her vegan diet for her ageless looks. Without a wrinkle in sight, Victoria Featherstone Pearce, 48, is often mistaken to be in her late 20s by strangers. The model and charity owner praises her plant-based diet, cruelty free beauty regime and teetotal lifestyle for keeping her young. Victoria from Bow, East London, says she feels healthier and more confident than she ever did in her 20s thanks to turning to veganism 15 years ago. She said: “I have been a vegetarian since I was six years old and became a vegan overnight when I learnt about the dark side of the dairy industry at 33. SEE CATERS COPY.

“I am not ashamed to say I feel and look good – I want to continue rocking it and being sexy until I am 90!” She admits.

“In the modelling industry, I have had experiences where we have spoke over the phone and I will be dismissed due to my age. People hear I am 48 and a distorted image appears in their mind – just because I am older it doesn’t mean I look it.”

“I believe mature models have a lot more to offer and I don’t want to be just a number.”

She’s not the first model to appear to defy ageing at 48. Earlier this year, Claudia Schiffer posed naked for a magazine cover at the same age.

The modelling industry has traditionally favoured younger models, a bias that Victoria has encountered in her professional career.

“Recently, I lied about my age for a German commercial casting – the age bracket cut off at 38 so I tried my luck and got the job!”

“I told the truth when they employed me, and they couldn’t believe I was a decade older.”

“The industry needs to change as it’s also contributes to women of all ages feeling bad about themselves when really modelling should give women confidence, not take it.”

She’s an advocate for mental health as well as veganism after suffering from depression since she was 21-years-old.

“I have been depressed for a long time due to finding out my dad wasn’t my real dad at 21 years of age. Depression doesn’t have a face; most people are shocked when they hear I am.”

Victoria has continued her work as a successful model, and she wouldn’t be the only one to believe a vegan lifestyle is the key to feeling and looking healthier.

Veganism has quadrupled in the last four years, with the likes of Simon Cowell adopting the lifestyle change and dramatically losing 1.4 stone of weight in the process.

Recently, 33-year-old Megan Fox revealed her children go to a sustainable, vegan school.

“We send them to an organic, sustainable, vegan school where they’re seed-to-table, they plant their own food. They grow it, they harvest it and they take it to local restaurants to sell it, so they understand how all of that works.” She explained in an interview.
