Jennifer Lopez's skincare secret is so simple - and you're probably skipping it

This big anti-aging tip keeps her skin looking youthful.

Jennifer Lopez is always asked about the secret to her skin. “Wherever I go, the number one question people ask is, ‘What do you do for your skin?’ ” the Hustlers star told Elle in her new February cover interview.  And for good reason. JLo’s skin is always glowing, and there’s not a wrinkle in sight.

So, what does she do to make sure her skin stays in tip-top shape? The On the Floor crooner said there are “Five S’s” on her skincare regimen - and one big one is sunscreen. It’s something everyone should use to protect their skin daily from the sun’s effects, which can speed up the process of aging when sunscreen isn’t worn.

As for JLo’s remaining Four S’s, that keep her looking “youthful and timeless at every age”, those are “sleep, serums, supplements, and “vivir sano,” which is Spanish for “living a healthy lifestyle.” The mom of two describes her skincare regimen as holistic and included those sunscreen, serum, and supplement elements in her JLO Beauty collection, which launched at the beginning of the year. 

All of the products contain another one of her secret skincare ingredients - olive oil - which she has used since she was a little girl.

JLo revealed her children are already trying to steal her beauty products, with Sam and Emme both trying on face masks she’s had in the past.  “I’ve tried everything from the cheap products at the drugstore to the most expensive stuff—and some of these masks can run you $50 to $200, okay? They are expensive,” she told the mag. “My kids are, like, trying to put it on, and I’m like, ‘Don’t touch that mask, that’s too expensive to play around with.’ ”

Her 12-year-old twins aren’t the only ones who try to steal her products though. Her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez does too - especially when it comes to her JLo Beauty products.

“[Alex] tries everything,” she told Elle. “We did the mask together on the first night, and I filmed myself and it was just life-changing. I was like, My God, I feel like I have a baby face!” she said, laughing. “He loves it, and now we’re always fighting for the mask since they’re not in full production. [These products] are for anybody who has skin, which is everyone.”

The mask was one of the products fans were most excited to try ahead of J.Lo’s beauty collection launch, after J.Lo shared a video of herself trying it. “Oh my god, this is the best mask that I’ve ever ever tried,” she said in the video she posted on Twitter, which showed her skin looking dewy and glowing after applying the brand’s Limitless Glow Multitasking Mask.

“When you take off [the mask], honestly, you have a baby face,” Jennifer said as she gave a sneak peek at the collection, according to Allure. “It's tightening. It's glowy. It's a special thing. We should charge $10,000 for these masks!" The beauty mogul told the magazine she created the mask, which is soaked in the brand’s signature That JLo Glow Multitasking Serum with a two-piece design to keep it in place as the skin absorbs the radiance-boosting ingredients.
