She’s constantly working out

JLo doesn’t care if it’s the end of the world, she’s still going to squeeze in her morning workout. 

She swears by cleansing

She does everything in her power to make sure the doesn’t have any makeup residue in her pores.

She doesn’t smoke, drink, or come near caffeine 

I think we should all start taking notes! As I said, her discipline is perfect and it’s really astounding to me."I don't drink, smoke, or have caffeine. That really wrecks your skin as you get older,” JLo tells US Weekly. 

She cut out sugars and carbs

Apparently, if you follow a 10-day program that strictly prohibits sugars and carbs, you have a chance of looking like JLo when you’re 50.

Protein shakes are her go-to

If she feels hungry, JLo does not give in to her cravings. She whips herself up a healthy protein shake and manages to keep herself full.

She stays away from the sun

Those UV rays are no good for your skin. Lopez never forgets to wear her SPF and tries to limit her exposure to the sun as much as possible. 

Hydration is not a joke to her

Do NOT take this lightly. JLo herself does not take the power of water for granted. She even surpassed the normal 8-glasses-of-water-per-day rule.

Beauty sleep is key

Relaxation shows on your face. Being well-rested is essential to a healthy glow. Lopez says that getting enough sleep is so important to her, according to InStyle. "The number one tip is to always get enough sleep. I can’t stress this enough. Ideally I would love to get nine or 10 hours of sleep, but either way, I always make sure I get at least eight."

Meditation is her best friend

Imagine being a worldwide superstar, always on tour, never having a day off; you’re definitely going to need a few minutes to regain your sanity. The 50-year-old actress and performer always squeezes in meditation time, not once but twice a day. She has been meditating ever since 2015 for 20 minutes daily according to Cosmopolitan.
