Despite admitting to having a few injections of Botox every eight months and fillers in his cheeks, he has never had any invasive plastic surgery.

And the self-titled 'gorgeousness coach' says his youthful glow is down to a stringent skin care routine, vegan diet and avoiding junk food 

He walks outside for at least 30 minutes every day and has a personal trainer who weight-trains with him three times a week.

Tristan also swears by reformer Pilates, which he describes as 'Pilates on what looks like a rowing machine with levers'.

Sharing his secrets, Tristan reveals that the foundation of his youthful looks is actually a 35-year-long dedication to his skincare routine, which he has followed every day since he 'erupted' in spots as a 16-year-old.

He also undergoes an array of beauty treatments regularly such as microneedling, microabrasion and microcurrents to keep himself looking young.

'Keep skincare basic but do it regularly,' he said.

'I've been doing it every day for 35 years, I've missed five days in that time. I can be ill, drunk, I'll still do it.

'Looking young starts with a healthy lifestyle at the bottom of the health pyramid.

'It's got to be sleep, then food, exercise, skincare, stress levels.

'Then at the very top of the pyramid, it is possibly things like injectables.

'Because I've had a little bit of Botox, people always go "oh well that's cheating and that's why you look young" and I'm like, "well it helps".

'But not everyone that has Botox looks 25.

'So the very last thing I have done is that if all else fails, then maybe some subtle Botox. I'm not into surgery.'

Tristan credits his junk-free diet and daily exercise for his fresh-faced looks. Pictured now

More importantly, Tristan credits his junk-free diet and daily exercise for his fresh-faced looks.

Tristan said: 'I have facials and I have a really good skincare routine, but my skincare routine is based on my nutrition, as much as it is lotions and potions.

'Because you can be putting a £300 pot of moisturiser on your face but if you're eating a lot of sugar, drinking a lot of alcohol and smoking it's a waste of time really.'

Despite his incredibly toned appearance and saucy Instagram shots, the youthful man says that maintaining muscle mass and staying nimble to combat ageing are his main fitness goals, rather than looking good.

Despite his incredibly toned appearance and saucy Instagram shots, the youthful man says that maintaining muscle mass and staying nimble to combat ageing are his main fitness goals, rather than looking good.

He said: 'I'm interested in functional fitness – fitness for life not just for Instagram.

'I'm not hitting it hard but I am disciplined.

'As I get older, I don't want to be like lifting heavy weights, I can barely lift a cotton bud sometimes.'

While most people are trying to turn back the hands of time, Tristan says his youthful looks are a 'mixed blessing', as many believe that he is scamming them when he tells them his age.

He said: 'There are so many cons to looking young, people think it's all good.

'Let's say I go on dates and people think I'm lying.

'Older people don't know what to do with me, they think I look too young.

'People that are young think that I look young but they know I'm not young.

'People don't believe me, they think I'm a scam.

'I've been in meetings and people have been like 'who is this kid'.

'I've been to the doctor's surgery to pick up my prescription and they're like "is this for your dad".

'If I don't have ID to buy alcohol, when I used to buy alcohol, they wouldn't give it to me.

'People don't take me seriously because they think you're lying or you're a fake. So it's not all good.

'It's a mixed blessing.'

Tristan believes that his youthful mindset radiates through, helping to give people the impression that he is younger than he is

Some proprietors even ask Tristan to provide a birth certificate, as well as his ID.

While he definitely looks like he has a spring in his step, Tristan believes that his youthful mindset radiates through, helping to give people the impression that he is younger than he is.

He said: 'There is no magic pill but I also think it's personality, which doesn't sell magazines.

'I'm very playful, open-minded, spontaneous and I think people often meet me and say you actually feel young.

'It's about youthful energy, which is playful, curious but on a practical level it has to be healthy first, and that is what we eat, how we move and how we manage stress, because stress is incredibly ageing, not just for your skin but inside as well.'

The holistic health coach used to be a big drinker but now avoids alcohol, enjoying a glass of red wine around five times a year. He does however have a strong love for black coffee, which he will never give up.

Sharing his skincare tips for others hoping to get keep themselves looking fresh as the years drag on, Tristan said: 'I try to use natural skincare and I don't spend a lot of money on it, but I do try and find products that are ideally un-fragranced because fragrance can aggravate the skin.

'I'm a massive fan of hyaluronic acid, which comes in different shapes and sizes, it's basically like water in your hand but if you put it under a moisturiser it's incredibly hydrating without the heaviness or the oil.

'It's probably my favourite product.'

Overall, Tristan believes taking time to practise self-care every day is the key to maintaining a youthful appearance.

He added: 'It's a very poncy thing to say, but I think self-care is one of most empowering things you can do.

Tristan, who shares tidbits from his life and looks on Instagram has even written a book detailing his top tips to ageing gracefully, called 'Munch Move Moisturise: How to age gorgeously in your thirties, forties, fifties and beyond!'. He is pictured aged 12

'You know, for me, it's a ritual in the morning and in the evening it's a great way to get yourself ready for bed.

'For my evening skincare routine I've got candles, I've got peppermint tea, I've got Mariah Carey going on, it's a little bit of a skincare party.

'It's a really nice way of unwinding, so it's much more than just how my skin looks, it's how it makes me feel.'
