Speaking to FEMAIL, Tris, who shares snaps on Instagram, explained she thinks the key to looking younger is to start taking care of your skin when you are young – and to ‘live as happily as you can’.
She said: ‘I started using anti-aging creams when I was 21. I think it helps tremendously to start early on taking care of yourself. I also always use sunscreen.
‘And I’ve never smoked or drank alcohol. I’ve tried a ton of different products but the one that’s made the biggest difference for me has been the Purity line from PHILOSOPHY. It’s super gentle on your skin but my skin has literally never been smoother. My skin loves it!

‘I also believe even when times are tough you should do whatever you can to laugh. Even something as simple as watching a comedy can help boost your mood and I definitely believe your mood and keeping your stress down as much as possible helps me stay youthful.
‘Life is short! Live as happily as you can while you can and that happiness will radiate out.’
She added that her youthful appearance helps her professionally because she can be cast as younger characters.
Tris has had roles in short films, TV shows including Ink Master: Angels and feature length productions including Max Winslow and the House of Secrets.
She said: ‘I don’t think it’s hindered my acting career at all in fact, in many ways it gives me the advantage of having the looks to play a younger character, but the maturity And experience that comes in handy to play more challenging roles, and my agents are able to cast me in roles ranging anywhere from 20-30.’
TikTok users shared their disbelief at Tris’ age and took to the comments to jokingly demand she show her birth certificate. Pictured, a selection of the responses she received
