The start of a new year often comes with fresh beginnings, from a change in mindset to a change in our regular beauty routines. Thankfully, Jennifer Lopez has shared her skincare regimen on Instagram, revealing that the secret to her glowing skin takes just three shockingly simple steps—meaning, we can copy it for ourselves.
The actress, singer and newfound beauty mogul wore a gold silk robe to take her followers through the simple beauty routine. Of course, the three steps included products from her newly launched JLo Beauty line, which the star created as a luxurious and accessible skincare and makeup collection.
Lopez shared how much time and effort went into creating the new line. “We’ve spent hundreds of rounds of testing products and formulations… all to make sure we created the perfect products for YOU to get THAT GLOW,” she wrote alongside her nighttime skincare routine. “I am so proud of what we came up with and I know you’re going to love it. We’re JUST GETTING STARTED!!!!”
If you were looking for a no-fuss New Year’s beauty resolution, this surprisingly simple routine has provided the perfect source of inspiration. The routine is as follows.
Like any good routine, J.Lo knows she needs to work with a clean and fresh base. Starting with That Hit Single Gel Cream Cleanser, the singer reveals she uses a “quarter-sized drop” to remove her “stage makeup”, going on to lather it all over her face. “There it goes… wash away 2020!” she joked.
After cleansing, she gently massages That JLo Glow Serum—a product from her new line which contains a “moisturising olive extract complex”—leaving her with a dewy complexion. “I wanted to make sure it had a tightening and instant glow effect,” she says in the video. “I have more glow with bare skin than I did with the makeup on.”
The final step of the incredibly simple routine includes the That Blockbuster night cream, which is substituted in the mornings with the JLO Beauty That Big Screen SPF. “One of my secrets that keeps me looking as youthful as people like to say that I look, I believe, is from SPF 30 and using it every single day,” the Hustlers star explains. “I’ve done it since I was in my early 20s without missing a day, and I think if you start that young, even if you do it now, sun damage is one of the things that hurts your skin and damages it the most.”
As simple as that!
Prior to releasing her new line, Lopez said she wanted to put her signature “glow” in a bottle, defining it in a way that melds skincare with self-care.
“A glow is something that starts on the inside that shows on the outside,” she said in a teaser trailer last year. “It’s living healthy… spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically. It’s a joy for me to be able to share that.”
