Jennifer Lopez is frequently seen performing on stage with a glamorous face, although she has also been seen sporting little makeup, according to a post on the Business Insider website.
Jennifer Lopez ended 2020 with a New Year's Eve performance in New York City's Times Square and, in an Instagram video filmed Friday, she "took off" the previous year (and her makeup). The actress and singer wore her clean face after retiring what she called her "stage makeup" and showed viewers the products of her new brand, JLo Beauty while giving her advice on skincare.
The 51-year-old star, who has been a part of various films, previously shut down speculation that she receives cosmetic treatments like botox and fillers and emphasized the importance of wearing sunscreen daily as an anti-aging tactic.
"One of my secrets to staying as young as people like to say I look, I think, is SPF 30 (from sunscreen) and using it every day as my moisturizer," Lopez said in her video. "I've done it since I was 20 years old without wasting a day." Consistent use of sunscreen is something that dermatologists and medical experts talk about as well, in terms of the health and anti-aging benefits, especially when using a broad spectrum one.
For example, the American Academy of Dermatology advises that everyone wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, as it not only "helps protect against sunburn and premature aging," but it also helps prevent skin cancer by offering protection against the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays.
In the past, Jennifer Lopez has opened up about other parts of her beauty routine that she believes contribute to her signature 'JLo glow'. For example, when announcing the launch of JLo Beauty through an Instagram video, Lopez spoke about her mother's love of olive oil as a panacea for skincare, and also about how she chooses to use natural oils Instead of synthetic oils in your creams.
Additionally, JLO told InStyle in 2018 that her "number one tip" for skincare is to "always get enough sleep" and said that she ideally likes to get nine or 10 hours of sleep each night.
Some of Lopez's dietary choices can also influence what she calls her "youthful" appearance, such as not consuming alcohol, something that medical experts have previously indicated can improve the appearance of the skin. "I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't take caffeine. That really ruins your skin as you get older," Jennifer Lopez UsWeekly told her in 2016.
