At 50 years old, she looks as youthful, glowing, and healthy as she did years ago. But all that seemingly effortless beauty doesn't come from sheer luck. J.Lo works hard for what she has achieved, whether that's an incredibly swole gym body or evidently flawless skin. Most of her tips and tricks for staying healthy and looking young are the typical recommendations you would hear from anyone with a grip on exercise, a healthy diet, and keeping their skincare routine on lock.
Lopez works out for as many days out of the week as she can, obviously. When she's on tour, that means that part of her nightly dance routines are also part and parcel of her exercise routine. "I will work out and be in the best shape of my life," she posted on Instagram. As for when she deigns to bless the gym with her presence? She's a first thing in the morning type of woman. “I don’t like doing it later; it’s harder to get there when I have my day going already," she told Hollywood Life. "I work out three or four times a week. When I’m in New York, I work out with David Kirsch — he’s an amazing trainer. When I’m in L.A., I work with Tracy Anderson. I like the balance that they both give me. They have two totally different approaches. I like switching it up with my body.”
Lopez basically has zero vices, it seems. "I don't drink, or smoke, or have caffeine," she admitted to Hollywood Life. "That really wrecks your skin as you get older." You see, la reina of New York has not had caffeine "in years," and that apparently is a major key to her youthful appearance.
Working out your mind is just as important as working out your body, and that's something that Lopez takes to heart with meditation, a practice she began in 2015. "Affirmations are so important," she told Well + Good. "I am youthful and timeless. I tell myself that every day, a few times a day. It sounds like such clichéd bullshit, but it's not; age is all in your mind."
ould get more, she'd take advantage of that. "Ideally I would love to get nine or 10 hours of sleep, but either way, I always make sure I get at least eight," she said.
