According to The New York Post, a nun in New Jersey went viral after she posted her first-ever TikTok video about a wild turkey terrorizing her convent, but the real star of the clip was her glowing complexion.
The Post reported that Sister Monica had four followers at the time and was trying to make them laugh at the bird, but the video caught the attention of social media fans who thought she was talking about Wild Turkey Bourbon, not an animal, and she gained 66-thousand followers in less than two weeks.
But all anyone wanted to know is what this 55-year-old nun does to look so young. Sister Monica was totally surprised when she began getting thousands of messages from women asking about her skincare routine and says people were leaving comments like “Girl, there’s no way you’re 55 years old! What’s your secret?” And she’s happy to share her tips for flawless skin:
- Stay out of direct sunlight – She avoids direct rays because she has a sun-induced migraine condition, but less sun means fewer wrinkles, too.
- She uses gentle skincare products – For her sensitive skin, Sister Monica stocks her bathroom with Aveeno oatmeal baby wash.
- And use great lighting – To bring out her glow, she uses some tricks she learned while working as a photo editor before becoming a nun. She suggests recording videos in a warm key light, positioned at eye level or putting a semi-sheer curtain over a window for natural lighting. And she warns against positioning your camera in a way that creates shadows across the face.
“I can’t believe I’ve gotten this much attention online, especially at my age,” Sister Monica told the Post. “When I was in my 20s trying to get famous as an actress, I couldn’t even get arrested.”
