While we’re used to seeing J.Lo in a full face of make up, the singer, actress and businesswoman recently went bare-faced in an IGTV video to show off her newly-launched skincare brand JLo Beauty.
In the video she waxes lyrical about her new glow-getting products (which are only available in the US for now), but along the way we also find out J.Lo’s beauty secret that she’s been abiding by for years to achieve that youthful J.Lo glow she’s so known for.
First she uses the cleanser to not just take off her stage make up from her New Year’s Eve performance, but also to ‘wash away 2020’ as J.Lo jokes in the video. After applying a serum she then goes to apply a night cream, but also picks up the daily moisturiser which contains SPF 30 – and it’s here that we get an insight into Jennifer Lopez’s ongoing daily skincare routine.
‘One of my secrets to keeping me looking as youthful as people like to say that I look, I believe is from SPF 30 and using it every single day as my moisturiser. I’ve done it since I was in my early twenties without missing a day,’ Jennifer explains in her video.
Although we’re sure that having access to the advice of the world’s best experts, plus any holy grail product money can buy, may have helped her along the way, it’s true that J.Lo’s beauty secret of wearing SPF every day – even on cloudy days, even in the middle of winter, even if you’re staying indoors all day – can help to slow the ageing process. Years of sun damage is what causes those classic signs of ageing on the skin: dryness, liver spots and deep wrinkles.
As the superstar says in her video, ‘sun damage and environment damage is one of the things that hurts your skin and ages you the most.’ We’ll be slathering a bit extra on today.
