Very few pop sensations can boast of awe-exuding beauty as living icon Jennifer Lopez can. Great looks can be a blessing obtained from good genes, great skin and body care, or from a combination of the two. Or, one could get it all through modern medicine and surgical procedures. Rarer still is to find a star from the entertainment industry who has never needed this last option to keep up public appearances.
At 51, superstar Jennifer Lopez raises eyebrows in envy over her flawless olive-skinned beauty. She has, never even considered Botox and her ageless beauty is a result of consistent and dedicated self-care, she claims. Lopez is all set to launch her own line of cosmetics and skincare under her brand JLo Beauty, so it is no surprise that she chose to silence skeptics on the internet regarding the truth behind her youthful appearance when trolled.
The Latino star shut down a social media user who claimed that her looks at her age were unattainable without Botox. J Lo had posted a video on Instagram demonstrating the use of a mask from her skincare range. As she peels of her mask, she says, “Okay I just took off the mask. Honestly, I cannot even see a line on my face,” J Lo says in the clip, showing off her radiant complexion. “I feel like it took 10 years off my face.”
Several viewers commented on the video complimenting her gorgeousness. One user, however, commented, “But can I just mention that brows and forehead doesn’t move at all when you talk or try to express. You definitely have Botox. And tons of it. And it’s all good. Just saying.”
J Lo shot back, “LOL that’s just my face!!! For the 500 millionth time… I have never done Botox or any other injectables or surgery!! Just sayin’ 🙂 Get you some JLO BEAUTY and feel beautiful in your own skin!!” She ended her response with an additional secret tip. “And here is another JLo Beauty secret: try spending your time being more positive, kind, and uplifting of others don’t spend your time trying to bring others down. That will keep you youthful and beautiful too!!! Sending you love,” Lopez closed her comment using the hashtags #beautyfromtheinsideout and #beautyhasnoexpirationdate
So has J Lo really never considered going under the scalpel? No, insists the ageless beauty. She recalls how in her early twenties, a perfection-obsessed boyfriend and a doctor did suggest correcting certain lines on her face and body. She took the consultation but did not carry through with the process. She believes she did not do it then partly because she was still young, and partly because she hated needles. She realized later that she did not need to change a thing about her looks with cosmetic surgery at all. All she needed was some good skin products and a good skincare routine.
Bottom line: The J Lo glow is achieved with years of dedicated self-care and self-confidence. It is nothing if not natural. But it is not without self-investment either.
