Disclaimer: I have a major soft spot for Jennifer Lopez. In fact, 13-year-old me was a serious fangirl, and I bet any teenager who lived through 2002 was also one. With Maid in Manhattan, “Jenny from the Block,” and Glow by J.Lo eau de toilette all launching that year, she firmly cemented herself as a box-office hit, R&B star, and beauty guru in a mere 12 months—and I was hooked. Since then, I’ve continued to admire Lopez’s career from a distance, but it was only when faced with her up close when I went to watch Hustlers at the cinema this week that I realized how damn amazing she looks. And since she has two decades on me, I was keen to find out exactly how J.Lo is still stepping out with that trademark glow at 50 years old.
Lopez is notoriously tight-lipped about the ways she keeps her skin looking so incredible, but with a bit of beauty-editor detective work (and a little help from the internet), I’ve managed to uncover a few key beauty tips that J.Lo swears by for achieving that radiant glow. Keep scrolling for five reasons Jennifer Lopez’s skin looks so incredible at 50.
In an interview with People, Lopez spilled the beans on how she gets her skin looking so radiant, and it’s down to chemical exfoliation. Her product of choice? “Glycolic acid to get that healthy glow and clear skin,” J.Lo revealed.
