ennifer Lopez is known for a variety of things: her iconic Versace dress (yeah the green one), being Jenny from the block, her music, her movies, and her glowing skin. J.Lo has always had a unique glow way before the powdered highlighter was in vogue. Her skincare secrets are now easy to buy because she has her own skincare line. Even though she has J.Lo beauty makeup artist Hrush a revealed some of the tips and tricks she used to help give J.Lo that sunkissed J.Lo look.
Jennifer’s biggest beauty secret is her skincare routine. Before applying makeup she focuses on developing clear and radiant skin underneath her makeup. Her skincare secret is olive oil which can be found in her new skincare line. In an interview with Elle.com she said :
“My mom used to say that olive oil was the cure-all for everything. And it’s a secret I’ve used over the years because it does work. When we went to do this, that was the first thing I said: It has to have olive oil extract as a basis.”
J.Lo Beauty is her way of sharing her beauty secret with fans and making it accessible. The skincare line comes in bronze packaging and the word Glow can be found in many of the product names such as The JLO GLOW Multitasking Serum ant the LIMITLESS GLOW Multitasking Mask
Her glow has become as iconic as her Versace dress, but there is more to it than just good skin. In another Instagram post, she says she created the line because she wanted people to feel beautiful in their skin without the fillers and filters.
Professional makeup artist and influencer Hrush worked with Jennifer Lopez on a photo shoot that was focused on giving her a natural look. J.Lo was very specific about what she used, how her makeup was applied, and what order her makeup was applied. The late makeup legend Kevin Aucoin was J.Lo’s makeup artist in the late 90s. He created some of her most memorable looks like the crystal eye makeup for the Waiting for Tonight music video and J.Lo makes sure his techniques are still used while in the makeup chair. She taught Hrush the secret to her bronzed glow. To achieve the proper contour and highlight she layers her cream contour and highlight underneath and over foundation and only applies product with brushes.
She has always worn SPF religiously even in her teen years. UV rays can be damaging to the skin and lead to sunspots, premature aging, and in some cases skin cancer. SPF prevents potential sun damage and can help protect the skin from premature aging caused by the sun. She not only wears SPF but she doesn’t spend much time in the sun either to avoid the potential damage it can cause to her skin.
The sun, however, is not horrible but sun exposure should be done in moderation. A small amount of UV rays is good for you and is a great source of Vitamin D however, too much sun leads to aging, low immune system, freckles, moles, skin cancer, and eye damage.
J.Lo’s healthy lifestyle is a part of what keeps her looking great. She doesn’t drink alcohol, consume caffeine, or smoke cigarettes because it “wrecks your skin as you get older.” She also is a fan of supplements and vitamins to prevent inflammation.
She is a huge fan of following a clean diet of fresh produce, lean protein, and lots of water. She pairs this with an active lifestyle she does pilates, weight trains, boxes, and of course dances.
By staying hydrated and avoiding caffeine and alcohol her skin remains hydrated which improves the skin’s elasticity. Consuming minerals and nutrients can also be beneficial to the aging process. Even Though J.Lo boasts about her healthy lifestyle, genetics play a role as well; diet and exercise can help one achieve glowing skin but it’s not a guaranteed solution to perfect skin.
J.Lo also credits her attitude and positivity for her good looks. Though, this is a unique skincare step she swears by affirmations and avoiding the negativity. She posted a video to her Instagram account showing the anti-aging effects of her J.Lo Beauty sheet mask. One commenter accused her of using botox, and J.Lo had the perfect response: For the 500 millionth time…I have never done Botox or any injectables or surgery!! Just saying. Get you some JLO Beauty and feel beautiful in your skin!! And here is another JLO Beauty secret: try spending your time being more positive, kind, and uplifting of others, Don’t spend your time trying to bring others down that will keep you youthful and beautiful too!!! Sending you love. #beautyfromtheinsideout #beautyhasnoexpirationdate.”
J.Lo not only has her own skincare line that delivers glowing, tightened, and moisturized skin, but she has a healthy lifestyle and attitude to complement it.
