The morning mantra she swears by
J-Lo recently gave her fans a much-wanted glimpse into her morning routine, sharing the feel-good ritual she never misses in the morning. The star revealed: “Right outside my shower I have a little box of affirmation cards. This is the affirmation card I took out today, it says, ‘Your success and happiness lies within you . Decide to stay happy and you and your joy and you will form an invincible army against difficulties.
“I will resolve to stay happy no matter what. It’s a promise you make to yourself. My success and happiness rests with me,” she said of the card. “I’m feeding my soul with affirmation, not looking at my phone yet. I’m just preparing for the day with the right intentions and the right thoughts, feeling positive.”

The fitness regimen she practices four times a week
It’s clear that J-Lo is working hard on her incredible physique (four times a week, to be precise). The star trains with holistic weight trainer David Kirsch, who wrote The ultimate New York body plan. According to his website, David’s holistic approach to wellness encompasses a “disciplined regimen of exercise, nutrition and supplements” and is rooted in his “Sound Mind, Sound Body” philosophy – to help his clients achieve harmony of mind, body and spirit. He says his workouts are personalized and deliver lasting results — and if J-Lo’s body is anything to go by, we believe it When Jennifer’s in Los Angeles, she trains with Gwyneth Paltrow and guru Kim Kardashian’s go-to Tracy Anderson, who’s known for her effective full-body workouts. “I like the balance that the two different coaches give me,” says Jen. “They have two totally different approaches. I like to change that with my body.”
SPF, every fucking day
It’s probably the one piece of advice every celebrity swears by, but Jen is proof that you really should wear protective SPF every day, even when it’s not sunny. Speaking about her stalwart beauty hack during an interview on Live with Kelly and Ryan in January 2021, she shared, “The only thing I’ve done since my late teens/early twenties is wear sunscreen Lots of people don’t use it every day and only wear it when the weather is really nice or when they go to the beach, but I was lucky because a dermatologist told me said very early on to put on sunscreen every day.”
A clean lifestyle
J-Lo said famous American weekly that she does not drink alcohol or caffeine and abstains from smoking. “It really destroys your skin as you get older,” she said. And talk to Harper’s Bazaar in 2018, her then-fiancé Alex Rodriguez said, “She doesn’t drink or smoke. She leads a very clean life,” Tracy Anderson also revealed that the star eats nutrient-dense organic foods and Avoid processed foods and refined sugar. Goodbye, Whispering Angel.
The Booty Cream She Can’t Live Without
Among her many talents – dancing, performing, performing, serving up looks – Jen is also, like many of her famous colleagues, a beauty brand owner. And make no mistake, J.Lo Beauty has a few hits on its list. Jihan at Allure tried That Big Screen SPF 30 Moisturizer for Seduce last year and says it’s one of the few products to make it to their regular list. “It also raised high expectations when I heard the brand was launching a Firm + Flaunt Targeted Booty Balm ($65/£54),” she said. The balm is the first offering in the brand’s new body line (launching July 24, Jennifer’s 53rd birthday) and it’s already, as the kids say, passed the vibe test. Along with rich hydration, this formula leaves your skin feeling tighter and firmer almost instantly. Although it’s marketed as a product for your butt, it’s great to use all over your body.

Get the right amount of sleep
The top wellness secret that J-Lo swears is to get at least seven hours of sleep a night, explaining in the latest edition of her On the JLo newsletter: “We don’t value sleep. We value grinding and hard work – and admittedly, no one is more caught up in this rat race than me.
“I’ve found, however, that sleep is the most underestimated beauty secret for me. This is one of the principles of JLo Beauty and part of my 5S: Sunscreen, Serum, Supplements, (live) Sano and SLEEP! Sleeping at least 7-9 hours a night can be a game-changer. »
The star survived for around five hours a night, resulting in crippling panic attacks, which she said: “Since then, I have tried to live a very healthy and balanced life. As I slept and took care of myself, I realized it was all about pro-living versus anti-aging… I think of sleep as a little time machine. You lay down and step into a space where you preserve yourself, then you come out a new person younger than you were before.
