Sister Monica routinely shares videos on TikTok about her life as a nun, with one curious follower recently asking her to post her skincare routine. The nun is 55-years-old, which shocked her fans who thought she was in her 30s – which they credit to her not being around men.
In her latest post, Sister Monica said that she “doesn’t really have” a skincare routine, but admits she has “probably a few less wrinkles than someone else my age” – and talked them through why.
She explained that she thinks beauty products are a “rip off,” so her skincare routine is very limited.
Sister Monica shared that she washes her face daily with Aveeno oatmeal body wash for babies and even takes a parasol outside so she can avoid sunlight.
However, some of her 48,000 followers think the reason for her youthful looks is the fact that she swore off men when she became a nun.
In the video, the nun said: “Maybe someone in their thirties who hasn’t slept in like a month-and-a-half? I’ll give you that.
“In person, I assure you, you would look at me and say ‘that woman is 55-years-old’.”
The video has since been viewed 335,000 times and received 72,000 likes, with thousands sharing their thoughts on the nun’s revelation.
One person said: “It’s because she doesn’t constantly deal with men’s audacity.”
