The expert explained why J. Lo looks years younger than her actual age…
The world-famous superstar Jennifer Lopez aka J. Lo, is 53 years old. But she does not look like a 53-year-old from any angle.
Well, of course, many of you would say there would be many factors involved here, including highly expensive beauty enhancement procedures, overpriced skincare routines, and fancy makeup.
However, these things do not contribute to overall healthy-looking skin in the long run.
In 2021, the On The Floor singer revealed that she never got Botox, fillers, or any other cosmetic procedures.
“I haven’t ever had Botox to this day,” she said. “I’m more about a natural approach to skincare… but I want [my products] to work.”
Later that year, a professional dermatologist, Dr. Dray, explained the reasons why the superstar didn’t age like other women and revealed the secrets behind J. Lo’s wrinkle-free and ever-glowing skin.
“There are many other factors that go into skin aging,” Dray said in her YouTube video.
“I think people are under the impression that getting botox, fillers, and having cosmetic procedures is really why these people look so good. And it’s more than that.”
The skin expert said that many factors throughout our lives contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles on our faces. The main factor is UV rays from the sun.
The main factor is UV rays from the sun, and J-Lo is pretty vocal that since the age of 22, she has been diligent with sunscreen,” she added.
She also said that our diet plays a significant role in aging, and many people do not care about eating healthy food.
“But if we found out what her diet is, I don’t think people should follow it to a T. Everyone’s nutritional needs are unique to them and it’s not necessarily helpful to follow a celebrities diet, because they are going to have different nutritional needs,” said Dray.
“However, we know things that are good for the health of our skin include healthy fats, getting enough protein, vitamins and minerals, and vitamin C for building good healthy collagen.”
She continued, “If you have a balanced diet, you are going to get the nutritive requirements but if you survive on sugary processed foods that is not going to set you up for healthy skin. No amount of botox or fillers is going to change that.”
Another critical factor is working out and exercising. Dr. Dray said that if people really want their skin to appear youthful and glowy, they should make exercise a necessary part of their daily routine.
“Another reason that she looks so good I am willing to put money on is that she is very active, – She exercises. She has said this in interviews. Have you ever been to one of her concerts? She dances a lot.”
One main factor, which is undoubtedly something you cannot do anything about, is genetics – Dr. Dray praised Lopez for being blessed with unique genes that play a major role in her flawless skin appearance.
“Genetics definitely play a role in how quickly your skin and total body will age,” she said.
“Things in our environment that contribute to skin aging do so largely by generating free radicals that damage proteins and lipids in our skin and the DNA in our skin cells.”
She concluded, “We have different enzymes in our skin that help combat those free radicals. Some people’s genes make it so that their enzymes are better perhaps.”
