Jennifer Lopez seems to be aging backward as she maintains a youthful glow even at 52 The actress’ mysterious age-defying look has left many hunting her secrets for years.
The cat is out of the bag! Jennifer Lopez has remained the symbol of youth and beauty for years, stunning the world with her ever-youthful appearance.
With many fans wondering how this actress, who has been in the spotlight since her twenties, seems not to have aged a day, the star’s youthful glow has remained a hot topic. By the way, if you ask JLo directly, she’d likely give all the credits to genetics, which in all sincerity seems uhh… you get the point.
For years, several outlets have probed JLo, to divulge details about her beauty products, skincare routine, diet plan, and workout regimen, in hopes of uncovering the origin of her youthful glow.
50s With Style
Jennifer Lopez never shies away from flaunting her head-turning beauty, whether on the red carpet, during public outings, or on social media. On several occasions, the star has set the internet on fire with photos that prove she was aging backward.
In July, the singer shared a photo showing her mirror reflection as she groomed her hair. She could easily pass for a teenager in the shot.
Even more captivating, the picture opened into a video of the star showing off glowing skin as she danced on a beach. The clip left fans in awe of her beauty and youthfulness. One fan commented:
“This is how you do 50s with style… amazing.”
Other fans agreed, tagging the Hollywood A-lister as “young forever.” Previously, she sparked an online debate in December, over the source of her youth, following a post promoting the glasses brand, Quay.
In the post, the songstress announced her partnership with Quay, accompanying it with a photo of herself looking adorably young, while flaunting a piece from the brand. The shot left fans obsessing over JLo’s youthful glow despite her age.
Jennifer Lopez Has Kids!
Looking ageless at fifty-two without going under the knife was already a seemingly impossible feat for anyone else. But doing so, even after having kids, was a game-changer.
Interestingly, the “Jenny From The Block” crooner is a mother to two children, whom she shares with ex-husband, Marc Anthony. Jennifer Lopez and Anthony welcomed their twins, Maximillian and Emme in 2008, four years into their 7-year marriage.
Defying nature, the icon regained her pre-baby body in no time and has since managed to stay in enviable shape, maintain flawless skin, and look like a beauty goddess.
So if you find yourself wondering if JLo has secretly discovered the legendary fountain of youth, and drank from it, you are not alone. Here we discuss everything the “Hustlers” star has spilled about her anti-aging secrets.
1. Working Out
Jennifer Lopez has stressed the importance of exercise in her general health and wellbeing, revealing she worked out three to four times per week. However, the timing was key.
The “Maid In Manhattan” actress once disclosed that she preferred working out at the start of her day. Additionally, she strived to incorporate variety in her regimen, switching between cardio, stair sprints, and push-ups.
Irrespective of the routine she opts for, the dancer always gave her best to maintain the same intensity. With the aid of two personal trainers, JLo has managed to stick to her regimen religiously, giving no room for excuses.
2. Avoiding Caffeine And Alcohol
While some might think otherwise, alcohol and caffeine are a “no-no” for Jennifer Lopez when it comes to staying healthy and youthful. The mother of two once revealed that she avoided consuming alcohol or beverages that contain caffeine.
That isn’t to say that the star does not crave coffee on the go. While she kept her coffee consumption to a minimum, JLo has said she always opted for decaffeinated brands whenever she chose to indulge.
And for some reason, she religiously observed the weird ritual of only consuming coffee stirred counterclockwise. Could that be the missing puzzle piece?
As for alcohol, there was no compromise, as the actress avoids it completely, as much as she avoided driving herself.
3. Sleep And Water
Adequate sleep and water conveniently make up for the lack of caffeine and alcohol in JLo’s routine. The businesswoman admittedly never jokes with her sleep time or water consumption, as they are two of the most important factors in her youthful glow.
4. Exotic Foods Can Scram
Unlike most celebrities who try to stay fit and healthy by cutting out some of their favorite dishes or adopting rigid diet plans, JLo was never scared to indulge occasionally. She reportedly enjoys chocolate chip ice cream, steak, and some high-carb diets which many frowns upon.
The star’s ex-fiance Alex Rodriguez once confirmed the singer snacked on cookies every night before bed. Despite being an unrepentant foodie, some meals just had to take the back seat in her life. She termed them “the exotic kinds.”
In a 2013 interview, the idol revealed her dislike for exotic foods like snakes, venison, and the likes, because “it gets too weird.”
5. Eating Healthy
Being a foodie was no excuse to over-indulge. Hence, the “Second Act” star has over time, adopted an organic-diet plan, eating lots of fruits and veggies. She also goes easy on the carbs, taking a page or two out of nutritionist Haylie Pomroy’s diet plan.
Some of Pomroy’s famous metabolism-boosting techniques include avoiding artificial sweeteners, preservatives, and dyes. This plan seems perfect for the self-proclaimed foodie, as it also entailed not cutting portions or counting calories. That’s a win-win.
6. Embracing Daily Confessions
Say it like you mean it, and it just might become true. That might sound cliché, but it works for JLo. The actress once revealed the place of positive thinking and daily affirmations in boosting her confidence and keeping her radiant.
By telling herself every day that she was youthful and timeless, the star has succeeded in looking the part. According to her, age was only a factor of the mind.
7. Investing In High-End Skincare Regimen
While exfoliating, hydrating, and waxing are important beauty routines for maintaining a healthy glow, Jennifer Lopez has additional beauty secrets she swears by. One of them is sticking to Sjal’s Saphir Concentrate, which has been her go-to facial oil for years.
Additionally, she adheres to an intense skincare routine, hydrates with night creams, and always takes off her makeup before bed. Avoiding exposure to the sun as much as possible, and using SPF when sun exposure was unavoidable was an important factor in slowing down her aging process.
8. Yes, The Genes
Perhaps you’ve tried out a handful of Jennifer Lopez’s beauty tips without achieving the typical JLo youthful glow. Don’t be quick to rule out her routines as another fad, as there is a possible explanation.
During a 2017 appearance on “Today,” the singer gave her genes the credits for her flawless skin. She admitted she inherited the genes from her mom and grandma, who both had naturally beautiful skin.
