“I’m real,” indeed.
Ahead of the launch of her JLo Beauty skincare line, apparently ageless superstar Jennifer Lopez revealed that she’s never turned to injectables to keep her famous face wrinkle-free.
“I haven’t ever had Botox to this day,” the “In the Morning” hitmaker, 51, told editors during a Zoom call to discuss her first-ever beauty brand.
“I’m not that person. I don’t have anything against people doing that; it’s just not my thing. I’m more about a natural approach to skincare … but I want [my products] to work. I want the hyaluronic acid in there. I want the things that are going to help, because I don’t want to have to go to the needles at some point. I’m not saying one day I won’t, but I haven’t yet.”
Lopez did reveal that early in her career, an ex-boyfriend did encourage her to give wrinkle-erasing injections a try.
“I was in my 20s and I was dating this guy,” she recalled. “He went to one dermatologist and I went to another dermatologist. Basically, my dermatologist gave me a great cleanser and some sunscreen and said, ‘If you do this from now on, your skin is healthy, you’re young right now, it’s going to be great.’”
Her ex’s doctor had a different opinion.
“She said, ‘Did you know you have a little line right here? We should start Botox.’ I mean, I had to be 23 years old, right? And I was like, ‘I’m going to pass,’” Lopez shared.
“I didn’t like needles anyway, but the boyfriend’s like, ‘Yeah, you should start it. I do that.’ I was like, ‘No, thank you.’ And I just wonder what would’ve happened to me if I would’ve started Botox at 23, what I would look like right now. My face would be a totally different face today.”
In lieu of invasive procedures, Lopez credits her flawless complexion to olive oil — “It’s a secret I’ve used over the years because it really does work,” she said — and diligent SPF application.
“One of the big things I would encourage everybody to do from the time they’re 15 years old, even younger, is wear sunscreen every day,” she urged. “That’s a big skincare secret that people kind of do but don’t do. They use moisturizers, but they don’t put on sunscreen every day. That is something I have done from that time I was 22 years old.”
Out January 1, JLo Beauty will offer a $79 serum geniusly dubbed “That JLo Glow,” along with a sunscreen, dietary supplement, face mask, cleanser, “wonder cream” and more — all formulated with, you guessed it, olive oil.
Everyone seems to have a skin care line out now, but JLo joining Pharrell makes the most sense, they both have amazing skin and look great for their age.
