Here’s the Truth Behind the Viral “71-Year-Old Lola Anita”

We’re not sure if you’ve seen them yet, but there are some viral photos going around Facebook right now of a woman people are calling ‘Lola Anita’. Most of the Facebook posts contain a slew of her photos – in which she looks absolutely AMAZING, by the way – with comments on how great she looks besides already being 71 years old.

Well, we did our research, and we’re sorry, but we’re here to burst your bubble.

The photos of “Lola Anita” that are circulating online are actually of a 55-year-old Thai woman named Sopit Soonthorntanasatit. Still, even though she isn’t 71 yet, we can’t discredit the fact that she still looks amazing.

And this really isn’t any wonder. Sopit is very particular about her beauty regimen. She religiously follows a skin spa regimen to keep her skin looking soft and smooth.

Of course, it also helps that she seems to be very confident in her skin and always has a gorgeous smile on her face. Even her daughter attests to this, saying that self-confidence is the most important tip that her mother has to take care of herself at 55. “Love yourself and look more beautiful everyday.” We couldn’t agree more.

We can only wish we look as great as Sopit does by the time we’re 55. Know any other gorgeous women we can feature? Send When in Manila Angeline a message on Facebook for a possible feature!
