Jennifer Lopez is so close to the big 5-0, but the Puerto Rican dance queen doesn’t look it. As you can imagine, JLo takes very good care of herself by never touching processed food, eating the right foods, and likes variety when it comes to her workouts.
The singer eats mostly organic food, where a typical meal has to include low-fat protein and packed with vegetables. She’s a busy woman–she has performances in Vegas, is an actress in Shades of Blue, and a judge on World of Dance, so she’s always on the go. This is why she always keeps healthy snacks around. If she’s hungry, she’ll pick up some fruits or veggies and snacks on that instead of junk food. Even though some of her faves are chocolate chip ice cream and chocolate chip cookies(according to her new beau Alex Rodriguez), plus she does have kids, so it’s only normal to indulge once in a while. On top of that, she doesn’t drink alcohol, smokes or even has caffeine! We don’t know how she does it, but it’s certainly working and it shows on her skin too.
Takes Care of Her Skin
JLo tells InStyle that she’s always taken care of her skin and that she’s a firm believer in SPF and staying away from the sun. She wears a lot of makeup when she’s working, so when she’s at home, she gives her skin a break and doesn’t wear too much makeup. She values the amount of sleep she gets every night and ideally she would like to get 9 or ten hours, but normally shoots for 8 (lucky her!). “I definitely think that beauty comes from within–you have to keep your mind, soul, body and spirit in sync. I am a firm believer in meditating and when you are happy and feel joy and love, you radiate beauty,” she says.
Likes Variety In Her Workouts
JLo is not afraid of putting in the hard work to stay strong, and on Instagram, she’s shared videos doing a variety of workouts including boxing, dancing, and other workouts. Tracy Anderson is Lopez’s personal trainer and the person responsible for keeping her body as strong as it is. Anderson explains that when she visits her in her studio, she raises the room temperature. “Doing workouts in a warm and humid environment makes your muscles more pliable (be careful not to push yourself too far), so these dynamic movements are easier to perform. That’s good news, considering our goal is lengthen our muscles,” says Anderson to Health. Check out one of her workouts she does with JLo below.
