In case you missed it, Jennifer Lopez recently turned 53 (we repeat, 53!). And yet, her skin looks like that of a young woman.
As a musician, actress, producer, entrepreneur and style icon, Jennifer Lopez is the definition of a woman of many faces. Because JLo is known for her glowing skin and healthy physique, she is regularly asked “how” she does it, and has always been happy to share her wellness routines and beauty secrets.
The 53-year-old singer and actress, in fact, claims not only a sculpted physique and always perfect hair, but also a compact and above all very luminous skin, a face with a natural glow that she perfectly sublimates with makeup. All of this is the result of a constant and daily commitment, from a regular fitness routine to a rigorous diet.
Of course, today she chooses and recommends the products of her brand, JLo Beauty, with which it is possible to recreate her incomparable glamorous look, but before the birth of the brand, over the years, she has shared some beauty secrets, so what are the secrets of her radiant face and a line always at the top? Here are JLo’s best kept beauty tips.

1 . SHE HAS USED A SPF DAILY ON HER FACE SINCE SHE WAS YOUNG!
JLo has literally been applying sunscreen to her skin since she started dancing. “I’ve been using sunscreen since I was about 18 as a moisturizer,” the star told Women’s Health.
For the record: one dermatologist she visited at the time shared this sunscreen tip with her, while another just suggested Botox, and she followed the sunscreen recommendation instead.
“This is one of the biggest secrets I’m willing to tell everyone that they don’t take seriously enough. Every day, our skin is not only damaged by the sun, but also by the environment. And just having sunscreen on your skin every day will make a difference,” said JLo.
2. OLIVE OIL IS HER FAMILY’S FAVORITE BEAUTY INGREDIENT
The entire JLo Beauty collection is based on a family secret from Lopez’s mother and aunt: olive oil. “It’s kind of like nature’s secret ingredient that we don’t use enough, but we also don’t want to smell like a salad, so you don’t want to use pure olive oil on yourself.”
She also recommends using it for skin hydration, hair and antioxidant protection. “It’s kind of a modernized version of a secret beauty ingredient. It was a favorite of everyone in my family to give a glow,” the singer explained.
3. SHE WASHES HER FACE AFTER EACH WORKOUT
The star of the movie “Marry Me” works out a lot, not only for her physical fitness, but also to keep a good wellness routine. She regularly shares clips on social media, as well as the incredible choreographed dance routines she practices for events such as her Superbowl Sunday performance alongside global superstar, Shakira.
After every workout and sweat session, she makes sure to freshen up. Speaking about her post-workout skin care routine, she said, “I always, always wash my face after a workout. It helps keep my pores clean and my skin healthy.”
4. JENNIFER LOPEZ DOESN’T FORGET TO GET 8 HOURS OF SLEEP A NIGHT!
JLo has regularly mentioned over the years how important she thinks a good night’s sleep is to being at your best.
In an interview with InStyle in 2016, she kept saying, “The number one tip is to always get enough sleep. I can’t stress that enough,” she said. “Ideally, I would like to get nine or 10 hours of sleep, but I always make sure I get at least eight.” She also confided, “If I don’t get my count, I don’t feel good. I start to go crazy, I get emotional and I feel tired all the time.”
5. THE NATURAL BOTOX: ITS NOT SO WELL KEPT TRICK
The cannabis eye cream behind J.Lo’s glow has been revealed. Jennifer Lopez says she uses “organic Botox” and that it doesn’t involve any needles. Biotulin is a gel that has been hailed as a natural alternative to Botox..
One of the main ingredients is spilanthol, a local anesthetic that works to reduce muscle contractions and relax facial features. Fans of the gel say that small wrinkles almost disappear, especially those around the eyes and between the eyebrows, areas that are usually treated with anti-wrinkle injections.
6 Never skip a fitness session
On stage, she ensures the show and the choreographies. Back home, she indulges in muscular fitness sessions following the advice of Tracy Anderson or her private coach David Kirsch.
7 Control your portions
Eat everything in small quantities: that’s Jennifer’s trick to watch her waistline without looking like it.
8 Limit carbs
When she wants to lose weight, J.Lo completely cuts out carbs from her diet. Instead: greens, asparagus, broccoli and kale.
9 Ban alcohol, cigarettes and coffee
“I never drank or smoked, and today it’s paying off because my skin still looks great, by taking care to moisturize it and getting a good night’s sleep. I have never had botox injections or anything else. If I ever really need it, maybe I will,” she said in an interview with Good Morning America.
10 Remove makeup gently
Her makeup artist Mary Phillips swears by the lavender-infused Herban Essentials Lavender Towelettes to soothe the artist’s skin while ridding it of impurities.
11 Protect your skin from the sun
To thwart the effects of UV rays on her skin, Jennifer Lopez never goes out without SPF 50, summer or winter.
12 Meditate for a more than positive state of mind
The singer meditates for 20 minutes a day to clear her mind and prepare herself to perform on all fronts.
Jennifer practices meditation, but that’s not all! She fills her days with activities that make her feel good so she never has negative thoughts.
13 Be regular
Regularity is key according to Jennifer, who has never missed a day without doing her beauty routine. Missing her pilates session or not applying her sunscreen are not in the singer’s vocabulary.
