J Lo Is Almost 50 And Here’s How She Looks So Young
Celebrities aren’t like normal people. For starters, normal people get older as they age. Celebrities don’t do that. They’re exempt from time. Celebrities stay the same age, even if they add numbers to how old they are. Sometimes, they actually get younger even if their age is a higher number. Again, celebrities are exempt from time. They’re exempt from gravity. They’re exempt from sun damage. It’s almost like once you become famous, age stops having jurisdiction over you and you can do whatever you want and it won’t show up on your face. Being famous is a better beauty secret than the fountain of youth or becoming a vampire. We wish that you could bottle “being famous” and turn it into a night cream. Because we’d rub that all over our skin every single night.
It turns out that Jennifer Lopez is almost 50. And even though that makes us feel old, she doesn’t look old.
Jenny From The Block
Jennifer Lopez looks so good in this photo. If you had to guess her age, you’d probably have a hard time.
You’d want to say she’s in her 20s, but logically you’d know that’s not true because she’s been a thing since the mid-’90s.
You might want to say she’s in her 30s, because she looks like she could be in her 30s, but that would be wrong again. Jennifer Lopez is a lot older than you think she is.
It turns out that Jennifer Lopez is actually 49-years-old. Yes, you read that right. It’s not a typo.
Jennifer Lopez is 40 plus nine years old. She’s 49. She might be 449 actually, because now we’re starting to think she might be a vampire.
Can you believe that someone who looks this young is pushing 50? Can you imagine what she’ll look like when she’s in a retirement home? She’ll probably look exactly the same as here.
Like A Fine Wine
We don’t know how she manages to stay so youthful. We can only imagine she drinks the blood of the innocent or sleeps inside a cocoon. It’s the only way.
We want to be let in on whatever secret she knows. How do we get it? Do we have to be rich and famous as well?
Well, lean in close, because we’re about to spill the secret things that Jennifer Lopez does to stay so young looking.
It's A Process
You are what you eat, so why would you want to eat something that ages you?
Jennifer Lopez avoids eating processed foods. Even though they have a long shelf life, they won’t make you have a long shelf life, too.
She mixes [her meals] up but a typical day is salmon and a veggie-packed salad. She loves broccoli, peppers and zucchini with a drizzle of vinaigrette on top. She usually has a protein with quinoa for dinner,” says Hollywood Life.
Even though Jennifer Lopez follows a strict diet, she’s not perfect. She is still, technically, human after all.
Jennifer Lopez has been known to snack throughout the day, but when she snacks, she doesn’t reach for a box of Cheez-Its.
Jennifer Lopez likes to snack on fruits and vegetables, which makes her a better person than most people. It turns out, the secret to everlasting life is to start appreciating broccoli and kale a lot more than you do.
On The Regs
But it’s not what you eat, it’s when you eat that matters, too. And Jennifer Lopez knows that.
The singer, dancer, actor, TV host, legend likes to have her meals at a regular time. She has dinner with her children every day at 6:30.
So if you’re eating dinner at 6:30, technically you’re having dinner with Jennifer Lopez, too, and nobody can take that away from you. You just have to be in the same time zone.
Work It Out
But Jennifer Lopez doesn’t get her amazing body by just eating her fruits and veggies.
Looking this good at 49 takes a lot of work, or rather, working out. Jennifer Lopez has been known to spend a lot of time at the gym.
Ugh. We knew that there was a catch to looking super trim and fit at 49. What gym does she go to? Can we go to? We just want to see if she’s human. Nothing weird.
The Spice Of Life
When Jennifer Lopez works out, she doesn’t stick to the same workout routines. She likes to switch it up.
Jennifer Lopez (of course) has personal trainers, because you can’t not work out with a personal trainer if you’re famous.
She also likes to work out in the morning. “I don’t like doing it later; it’s harder to get there when I have my day going already,” she said. “I work out three or four times a week.”
Jennifer Lopez is also a fan of her sleep, even though we can imagine she doesn’t get very much of it.
“I love a good nine or 10 hours [sleeping], but I can never get that,” she said. “So seven or eight is mandatory. [If I don’t get it] I just don’t feel right. I start feeling crazy, I get emotional and I feel tired all the time.”
We bet that celebrities don’t even sleep the way normal people do.
You can’t see any signs of aging on Jennifer Lopez’s face, and there’s a very good reason for that.
Jennifer Lopez takes really good care of her skin. “I’m rarely in the sun, but if I am, I wear a lot of sunscreen,” she said. “I’ve never been one to take a lot of sun, which is why my skin has maintained itself.”
Brb. We’re just adding a gallon of sunscreen to our Amazon shopping cart right now.
There are also three things that wreck your skin that Jennifer Lopez abstains from indulging in. You’re probably doing one of those three things right now, too.
Jennifer Lopez doesn’t smoke cigarettes or drink coffee or alcohol. “That really wrecks your skin as you get older,” she explained.
Being Jennifer Lopez is really hard work. We can get behind bathing in a vat of sunscreen, but giving up coffee isn’t worth it. We’d actually rather have the wrinkles.
Jennifer Lopez isn’t the only celebrity who looks as if they just don’t age at all.
There are many celebrities who have probably drunk the waters in Tuck Everlasting, and we can learn a lot from them.
If you lean in close, we’ll reveal some of the other secrets celebrities have for staying so young, and no, they don’t all involve sleeping with an IV of botox dripping into your face every night. Some of them are actually normal.
Whatever Jennifer Aniston does to stay so young, it doesn’t involve going under the scalpel.
There is this pressure in Hollywood to be ageless,” she said in a recent interview with Bobbi Brown. “I think what I have been witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves.”
“I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because I am not injecting s**t into my face… I see them and my heart breaks.”
Julianne Moore’s anti-aging secret is pretty simple. She just follows the advice you’ve probably heard since birth – wear sunscreen.
Julianne Moore says that she has been wearing sunscreen every day since she was just 23. And now, she looks closer to 23 than her actual age.
Julianne Moore also likes to avoid dairy, sugar, and alcohol as much as possible. Those three things can trample all over your skin like it’s their own personal bouncy house.
Halle Berry’s face looks so great because she takes great care of it. The former Bond girl gets regular facials.
“Women in their twenties are turning to anti-aging products too soon instead of getting help from aestheticians,” she said in an interview with Marie Claire UK. “I haven’t had a need yet for technical creams so I keep it very simple and just cleanse, tone, and moisturize.”
Instead, Berry visits her facialist four times a year.
Angelina Jolie doesn’t drink the blood of the innocent, but she does get her youth from the young. That is, if you count fish eggs as the young.
Angelina Jolie has been known to put caviar on her face.
She uses a product called La Prairie’s Skin Caviar, which does contain actual fish eggs. No surprise, it’s pretty expensive. One bottle of the product can set you back by $710. It’s a luxury for sure, but it’s worth it.
Lisa Bonet looks so young that sometimes we mistake her for her daughter Zoe Kravitz.
Lisa Bonet doesn’t reveal a lot of secrets about her anti-aging regime, but we’re pretty sure she has to have one.
We do know that Bonet is a vegan, and her diet could play a big role in how she’s managed to look as young as her daughter at all times. Who knew that animal products could age you so much?
Cindy Crawford makes staying youthful sound so easy. But then again, she’s also effortlessly beautiful.
“The secret is that there’s no secret,” she recently told Violet Grey. “Do all the stuff we know: Don’t smoke, get enough sleep, drink plenty of water, find what makes you happy.”
She also said it takes time. “When a 35-year-old starts taking care of her skin, she won’t look different. It’s when you’re my age that you start seeing the payoff.”
Helen Mirren’s anti-aging secret is to just not care that you’re getting older. She looks great, so it must work.
“My mother told me an amazingly wise thing that I’ve found to be true, which is that you should never worry about getting older,” she told The Mirror.
“Because an amazing thing happens. As you reach each age you find, like a miracle, you’ve got the weapons, or tools, to deal with it… [And,], you’ve realized you’re not the only person in the world, and beauty’s not the most important thing.”
So, it turns out that not all celebrities age the natural way. And not all celebrities are ashamed of admitting it.
Robin Wright says that part of her anti-aging routine is using good old fashioned botox.
The House of Cards actress says that she goes and gets the “tiniest sprinkle” of botox two times a year. Hey, at least she’s honest about it and not trying to tell us she “just gets a lot of sleep.”
