Time waits for no man but one Asian model-turned-photographer seems to have found a way to halt the clock.
Handsome Chuando Tan, from Singapore, is actually into his sixth decade, having turned 50 earlier this year – but you really wouldn’t know it by looking at his Instagram account.
The one-time pop star’s social media is filled with images that laugh in the face of the ageing process – with his chiselled abs and fresh-faced looks taking centre stage.

I’ll have what he’s having: Singapore former male model Chuando Tan is 50 but could pass for a man decades younger with his perfectly-honed physique and youthful face
Real-life Dorian Gray? Tan says the secret to looking young is working out regularly, eating his favourite chicken dish and never bathing early in the morning or late at night
With a whole half-a-century behind him, the Far East’s real-life Dorian Gray says his elixir of youth is simple – but we’re pretty sure it’s not going to work for everyone.
Tan, known as CD, says his regular work-outs and the habit of not bathing late at night or early in the morning are the only secrets to his age-defying body and face. Oh, and a taste for spicy Hainanese chicken.
In reality, some awesome genetics are probably playing a major part too.
Bottle those genes! An eye for fashion means Tan also dresses like a man who doesn’t look anywhere near the half-century mark
Tan’s Instagram account has some 160,000 followers, many who were staggered to find out his real age
Much to the delight of his growing online fan-base, he also loves a selfie, with his Instagram account littered with shirtless shots. Right: Doing a great impression of a teenager
His raven-black hair – whether dyed or natural – frames a face with perfect skin…but Tan, known as CD, isn’t just a pretty face, he owns a photography company that has shot some of Asia’s biggest stars
Alongside his ripped physique and baby-face charm, his hair is – enhanced or otherwise – raven black and he dresses like a man several decades younger.
Now a photographer, Tan occasionally models and was recently propelled back into the public eye after appearing on Saturday in an advert for Chinese news website Yidian Zixun.
His photography business, ChuanDo & Frey, has seen him shoot high-profile Asian celebrities including Rosamund Kwan and Shu Qi. He also shot Janet Jackson’s 2008 album cover for Discipline.
