Can you believe that Jennifer Lopez is 50 years old? I mean, she looks like a Goddess of youth. Her body is toned and her skin has that healthy, fresh glow. Her performance at the Super Bowl sure made us all fall right back in love with her! But if there's one thing that caught our eye, it was her gorgeous, glossy skin. So now you're probably wondering how does one age as gracefully as JLo, right? Where's the magic potion?
Sorry to burst your bubble, but there are no shortcuts. You can't wake up one day, randomly buy a product from the drugstore, switch your diet at the drop of a hat and expect to wake up with amazing skin the morning after. If you want good skin, you've got to make it a priority. You've got to discipline your existing lifestyle and follow a great skincare routine.
Jennifer Lopez has consistently been asked about her beauty secrets in almost every interview. Here are some of JLo's beauty priorities.
JLo is a busy boss woman juggling between her family life and career. However, the one thing that she does not compromise on is sleep. She once mentioned in an American women's fashion magazine that even though she'd love to get 9-10 hours sleep, 8 is a must.
Two ways to get healthy skin without beauty products or treatments - eat clean and drink plenty of water. JLo does both. Even when she's dining outside, she'll look out for low-calorie meals in the menu. Lean proteins, non-starchy veggies, brown rice, sweet potatoes, capsicum salad dressed in vinaigrette, zucchini, salmon paired with broccoli. In a nutshell, She drinks plenty of water, snacks on fresh fruits and fills her plate with a variety of veggies. Free from vices, this American actress also stays away from drinking and smoking. And what about coffee, you ask? Well, she prefers the decaffeinated version of it!
New Beauty Discovery: Have you tried consuming an adaptogenic beauty protein? We found one that's loaded with pearl powder, vegan protein, tetrahydro-curcuminoids, tocopherol and evening primrose. The best part is that it contains no sugar, artificial colour, artificial flavour and is non-GMO. You can add it to your water, milk or smoothie for that luminous glow.
There's always genetics to thank, JLo's mother and grandmother, both have really great skin. The good stuff trickled down to her. How lucky, right?
JLo loves her skin to the fullest! In an interview with a popular UK weekly magazine, she said that after the sweaty workout session, she washes her face. It helps to keep her pores clean and her skin healthy. Jennifer Lopez, also make it a point to wash her face and remove all makeup before she goes to bed. She later follows it up with a night cream to keep her skin hydrated.
So what kind of skincare products does this diva use? JLo's trademark glowing complexion can be accredited to skincare ingredients like Vitamin C, Glycolic Acid or pro-retinol in them. These ingredients help to exfoliate and retexturize your skin, fade acne scars and brighten your skin. Oh, and let's not forget SUNSCREEN, JLo can't go a day without it and neither should you!
If you haven't tried using glycolic acid, then you, my friend, are missing out on the good stuff! Even Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta, Founder & Medical Director, ISAAC Luxe will second that. She said, "If you aren't familiar with the benefits of glycolic acid use for skin, now's the time to get into it. It effortlessly removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. In turn, preventing unwanted pore-clogging on your face that can result in acne and spots."
One of JLo's favourite skin treatments is the O2 To Derm Treatment and it's available at Dr Geetika's clinics in India. The 'O2 To Derm' according to Dr Geetika, is one of the best facial treatments. She says, "The Oxygen Dome Therapy is an innovative treatment that uses a hyperbaric chamber to provide pure and ionised oxygen. The ‘air vitamins’ stabilise free radicals, which in turn generate new cells, reduce bacteria, rebalance pH levels, improve signs of ageing, correct and heal damaged cells. In conjunction with the Oxygen Dome Treatment, products used with this service improve tone, texture and will instantly leave a lasting healthy glow."
Wondering What It Is?
It's a treatment that focuses on delivering hydration and pure oxygen to your skin. During this treatment, a dome-shaped mask is placed on the patient's face, providing complete coverage to the face. This dome is connected to a machine that takes in outside air and through its process creates pure oxygen (90% high concentration) as well as an anion. It is this refined oxygen and anion that is infused in your skin to stimulate skin cell regeneration and impart a refreshed look.
The purified oxygen involved in the treatment efficiently regenerates decaying skin cells and reduces detrimental lactic acid. Anion, termed a “vitamin in the air” for its own benefits, helps promote blood circulation, activate cells and give the immune system a very helpful boost. One can avail a session of this therapy in every 20-25 days and it costs approximately Rs. 12,000.
Now that you know the secret to JLo's glow, go get glossy!
