Do you have two personal trainers and a bottomless wallet with which to buy skin care products? Well, if you do, you can look like Jennifer Lopez! The 46-year-old singer/dancer/actress recently shared her beauty secrets with People Style Watch and some of them are easier to achieve than you might think. Jennifer, who is currently performing her dazzling show “All I Have” at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, has been the subject of plastic surgery rumors as of late. But I tend to believe she definitely puts in the hours to keep her mind and body at the top of their game.
Many of us kick off the day by either incessantly hitting the snooze alarm until the last possible moment (guilty) or wake up stressed about work, kids and family. Not Jennifer, who takes a different approach, “I try to always to get as much sleep as I can so that I can start the day well rested and do my morning meditation and affirmations.”
Up next, exercise. You and I might hit a Zumba class, but Jennifer has us beat. She admits that it’s “hard work,” but told People, “It’s no secret that I love dancing, so it doesn’t even feel like exercise to me. I freestyle dance with Tracy Anderson five times a week. We’ll incorporate light weights (3 lbs) for the arms and moves that focus on the butt and thighs and engage the core.” And if that’s not enough, she has a trainer on both coasts. Tracy tends to her in LA and trainer to the stars David Kirsch puts her through the paces when she’s in the Big Apple. According to Jennifer, “We do hour-long circuits at least three times a week. Its full-body training — so planks, pushups, boxing — really everything. It’s all about changing it up and keeping your body guessing.”
As for her beauty routine, sun protection is key. Jennifer uses a moisturizer with SPF every single day. The L’Oreal spokeswoman also swears by glycolic acid to get that “healthy glow and clear skin” as well as night cream. Oh, and she never sleeps with her makeup on. Very guilty, especially if karaoke the night before is involved. In fact, J-Lo recently showed off her makeup-free, “woke up like this” face in a Dubsmash clip that her boyfriend Casper Smart posted to his Instagram page. It’s kind of nice to know she wakes up looking pretty much like all of us.
