For decades we have wondered just how she does it. From the glossy locks to the enviable figure to the flawless skin. Since the early nineties when she first graced our screens as an actress and R&B star, icon Jennifer Lopez appears to have hardly aged at all. At 51-years-old, she is still the bronzed goddess we met back in those early days, radiating that world-renowned healthy glow and natural beauty we all want to replicate.
"The number one thing that people ask me about, more than movies or music or anything, is my skin," she shares. Well, the time is now – at long last, Jennifer Lopez has finally let slip on her secret to ageless beauty and that JLo glow at the launch of her new skincare line, JLo Beauty.
Except, it’s not much of a secret at all; just good old-fashioned hard work and dedication – a lifestyle defined by JLo herself as the five s’s: sleep, sunscreen, serums, supplements and ‘sano’, the Spanish word from the phrase ‘vivir sano’ that sums up leading a healthy, sane lifestyle through practices like exercising, eating healthily and drinking plenty of water.
Oh, and a good splash of olive oil – the humble store-cupboard ingredient that is the basis of her new JLo Beauty eight-product anti-aging skincare line: a serum, SPF moisturizer, wonder cream, face mask, eye cream, cleanser, complexion booster, and supplements.
Lopez told Instyle, “When I started delving more into skincare, I learned that inflammation is what causes aging. You need to attack the inflammation with a great topical and a hydrating routine. We landed on a total of eight products that address plumpness, tightness, and luminosity to achieve that JLo glow.”
The Family Heirloom Ingredient: Olive Oil, Re-mastered
Family means a lot to Lopez, and the ode to her Latina roots is the focus in the key ingredient in her skincare line: olive oil (the “cure-all” youth elixir she swears by.)
“My mom and aunts swear by olive oil to deliver a glow. The hero ingredient in JLo Beauty is a modernized version of olive oil, called the Olive Complex. It's a combination of ingredients derived from extra-virgin olive oil, fermented oil, leaf extract, and squalane. It gives the skin this weightless, all-day hydration, antioxidant protection, and an ageless radiance. And it doesn't smell like salad dressing.” Lopez tells InStyle.
Clinical studies reveal that the specially-formulated JLo Beauty Olive Complex or “liquid gold” formula tackles two major causes of aging: oxidative stress and dehydration, delivering instant and lasting glow, and visibly smoother, plumper skin.
That JLo Glow Multitasking Serum
The multitasking serum visibly lifts and tightens, reducing physical signs of aging; hiding fine lines, making skin appear firmer, and boosting skin’s radiance and luminosity for an immediate and long-lasting glow.
A sugar-derived matrix delivers the surface tightening and lifting you can feel immediately, whilst Japanese rice sake soothes, conditions, brightens, and plumps the look of skin. Antioxidant-rich yeast-derived ferment smoothes the skin, leaving it silky soft.
JLo doesn’t leave her hardworking mantra at the stage door either. Lopez shares that it took years of testing to get the glow-boosting, anti-aging serum formulation just right. “It’s rich and luxurious. It took us two years to create this. We did over twenty versions to get this right.” The groundbreaking JLo Beauty Olive Complex provides all-day moisturization and a glow worthy of superstardom.
That Limitless Glow Multitasking Mask
An entire ounce of JLo Glow super-serum is soaked into the custom-designed mask that tightens, hydrates, plumps, and brightens for a supernova-level glow. It has a wrap-around ear shaping for anti-slip staying-power and contours the face to soak into every corner.
“Active ingredients transfer to skin with targeted delivery and penetrate deeply.” The serum-drenched mask visibly tightens and lifts with a powerhouse of active ingredients for deep hydration, luminosity, brightness, and velvety smoothness. JLo says that whilst she doesn't have time to get facials regularly, she “depends on a great mask, and I have to tell you, this is the best mask I’ve ever used.”
You only have to look at JLo’s post-mask selfies on Instagram, or countless other JLo Beauty ‘glow-getter’ fan reviews to see why it’s the bestseller. If you work as hard as JLo, this mask is the perfect remedy to take some time to wind down and rejuvenate as part of your self-care during a busy schedule.
That Big Screen SPF Moisturizer
Ever since she was advised by a dermatologist when she was younger, Lopez has used sunscreen as part of her daily skincare routine (one of her five s’s) – the number one anti-aging tip prompted by every beauty editor in the industry – so it’s only natural that SPF 30 is a key ingredient in JLo’s day moisturizer, That Big Screen.
This ultra-lightweight, whipped sunscreen protects from UVA/UVB rays and fights environmental pollutants, harsh weather, free radicals, and blue-light damage – all of which can cause aging and damage. Not only does it penetrate deeply, but it delivers a smoother, dewier complexion to give you an instant glow-boost.
The moisturizer contains licorice root: a natural clarifying, soothing ingredient with brightening effects, and a carefully curated blend of hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and natural sugars to drench skin with hydration for enhanced vibrancy.
Marine bamboo protects skin from high-energy blue light emitted from devices, “to help you hustle all day, every day”. The day cream is also free from harmful nasties like parabens, phthalates, oxybenzone, mineral oil, and fragrance.
That Blockbuster Wonder Cream
Intensive work schedules, long days, and late nights can leave skin looking tired, dull, and dehydrated. Enter: That Blockbuster Wonder Cream.
A powerful blend of ingredients, “peptides, niacinamide and collagen-protecting carnosine – support elasticity and visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, while natural ferments and our proprietary Olive Complex nourish, brighten, smooth and plump your look back to superstar glow status.”
The Wonder Cream from JLo Beauty works as hard as the glow boss herself tightening, visibly smoothing, brightening, and plumping, without feeling heavy or greasy, fuelled by hyaluronic acid – the superfood of hydration for juicy skin. Apply morning and evening for all-day and all-night hydration and luminosity, even under make-up.
That Hit Single Cleanser
Follow in JLo’s footsteps and remove make-up every night with the JLo Beauty sulfate-free, antioxidant-rich Gel Cream cleanser. Bronx-born Lopez regularly appears bare-faced on her Instagram page, and she even went on a live video to her followers to remove a full face of stage make-up to reveal the silky cleanser’s 1-wash effectiveness.
Gentle enough for morning use, and strong enough to remove make-up in one clean sweep, this gel-cream cleanser gets to work to lift any dirt or make-up. It unclogs pores using glycolipids without stripping essential oils and nutrients to reveal a bright, glowy complexion that looks radiant, more refined, and baby soft.
The JLo Beauty Olive Complex supports soothing rice bran, coconut fruit, and Japanese knotweed root extracts for healthier, more youthful skin that feels fresh, hydrated, and clean; a little treat for your skin, whether you need an energy boost for the day ahead or a relaxing ritual to cleanse a difficult day away. It’s also clinically proven to deliver all-day moisturization and glow.
That Star Filter Complexion Booster
Boost radiance with this multitasking highlighter-cum-contour-cum-bronzer complexion booster. It comes in 4 shades to suit individual skin tones and can be used in a myriad of ways. Use this creamy booster to highlight cheekbones, in a central line down your nose, and eyebrow arches – all of the places that catch the light naturally to create that lit-from-within radiance.
Light-bouncing mineral pigments visibly diffuse light, blur imperfections, and deliver that megawatt glow. A touch of color adds bronze, tan, and highlight for an age-defying luminosity. The versatile, blendable, ultra-sheer (to suit all skin tones) vitamin-E-packed formula can be used with or without make-up for instant glow and radiance. It leaves skin velvety smooth, with a hint of sun-kissed shimmer.
That Fresh Take Eye Cream
See a boost in elasticity, luminosity, and vitality with this hydrating, smoothing, and brightening anti-aging eye cream. Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, and elasticity enhanced with patented peptides. The blurring complex masks dark circles and discoloration and a sugar-derived matrix deliver surface tightening and lifting you can feel instantly. Radiance and luminosity are boosted in this youth-enhancing formula for the delicate eye area.
That Inner Love Dietary Supplements
The latest release in the JLo Beauty skincare line, That Inner Love Supplements, provides beauty from the inside out. Lopez is a big believer in nourishing the body from within, from her mantras and affirmations to the food that she eats, the water she drinks, and the training routine she follows.
One of her “five s’s” to ageless beauty is supplements. These glow-boosting capsules increase the body's ability to fight oxidative stress, enhance skin renewal and support collagen production to maintain the firmness and radiance of the skin.
The beauty capsule contains 12 essential minerals and vitamins the body needs to tackle the signs of aging where they start. “Plus, mega-antioxidants vitamins C, E, and A, four B vitamins, collagen-building copper, manganese and olive fruit extract up-level the skin nutrient and cellular protection benefits of this high-potency formula.”
JLo Beauty is so confident in their products that they provide a money-back guarantee if you don’t see results, even with empties. The JLo Beauty range will look quite the icon on your beauty shelves too. The packaging is super luxe; ultra bronzed, glossy and glowy, shimmering from every angle.
That JLo Lifestyle
If you’ve ever researched JLo’s routine before to find out just how she does it, you’ll be humbled to discover there is no quick-fix; rather, healthy choices every day amid a busy work schedule and strict health and training routine. JLo’s previous beaus, Ben Affleck and Marc Anthony, both speak in admiration of the star’s hard work and dedication, and it becomes obvious that’s in just about every part of her life. Snippets of her intense workout routines are regularly shared online by JLo herself, and her personal trainers.
Lopez’s personal trainer from the 2019 film Hustler’s, Dodd Rimero, shares the abs circuits she did: a grueling high-rep, high-intensity routine. Plus, her personal chef, Kevin Fernandez, shared that, "There’s always greens, like spinach, cucumber, and celery to make green juice.”
Jennifer Lopez encourages women to feel beautiful at every age. She told Harper’s Bazaar, "No one wants to hear, 'Oh, you look great for 50.' You want to hear you look great – doesn't matter what age you are. For us, beauty having no expiration date, being youthful and timeless at every age, and beauty coming from the inside out are really, really the mantras of the brand."
So, if you’ve been looking for luxurious anti-aging skincare that’s hydrating, smoothing, tightening, plumping, soothing, and nourishing; one that creates a youthful, glow-boosting radiance (who hasn’t?), turn your attention to JLo Beauty: that JLo Glow in a bottle.
