A 31-year-old mum looks so young that she often gets mistaken for her 15-year-old daughter's twin.

Nina Dixon, from Lancashire, says people mistake her for her daughter Millie's sister 'all the time'. Here she is with her other children:

She looks so young, in fact, that she still gets asked for ID, even when buying son Keaton, 11, a hamster.

“I went to buy a hamster for my son a few years ago and the assistant asked if a parent was with us." Nina says.

“I laughed it off saying I was their mum, but he persisted to ask me for ID as he didn’t believe me.

“I’ve had to drive back to get my ID for a glue gun before. It is frustrating but other times it can be flattering to know I still look young.

“My mum has always looked great for her age, so I think it runs in the family.”

Student nurse Nina had Millie when she was 16, and explained how she suffered with negativity from others during her pregnancy.

“People said that I wouldn't amount to anything,” she added.

“It was hard to hear and stayed with me a long time.”

Nina loves being a mum and had her second child, Keaton, in February 2011. She went on to have her third little one - 10-month-old baby girl Harmony - with partner Jacob last year.

“People are always shocked when I say I have a 15 and 11-year-old as they say I look in my early 20s," she says.

“When Keaton was just seven and in year three other parents thought I was a pupil too.

“I think people think I’m young because I’m very petite - I’m a size six, 5ft 1 and have size two feet.

“I do look like a little girl sometimes. When I’m with my mum, Caroline, 68, and the kids, people think we’re all her kids.

“It can be frustrating but mostly I see the positives.”

And, it seems that maintaining a youthful appearance might be easier than you think.

Earlier this month, we told you how one woman, aged 92, swears by a £2 cream to help her look decades younger.

It turns out that Joan has been using the same skincare product on her face since she was 16 years old, and you can pick it up for a couple of quid. You can read all about it here.
