Jennifer Lopez, 52, has one of the most well-maintained and gorgeous bodies in Hollywood. She strictly follows some rules in order to maintain a healthier lifestyle that aids in the maintenance of her glowing skin and fit body. She is known for never editing her pictures and showing her real self to her millions of fans across the world, reports Diply.
One of the most strict rules she follows is of having no coffee. She spoke to Hollywood Life, "I haven’t had caffeine in years." The next thing that she avoids, despite attending Hollywood events, is alcohol. She also drinks a lot of water that keeps her body hydrated and flushes out toxins. She said, "Hydrate. Drinking plenty of water, especially before a workout, can help you push harder and get more out of your exercise routine."
She also never indulges in smoking, in order to keep her skin glowing. She commented, "What you eat doesn't just affect your body; it can also affect the way your skin looks." Lopez is known for never skipping a workout even after having a very busy schedule. She told US Magazine, "Sometimes, I work too late the night before, and I’m like, ‘Ugh, I can’t do this.’ But I tell myself, ‘Just do it. It’s only an hour.’ It’s just talking yourself off the ledge of being a lazy bum." She doesn't work out every single day but goes to the gym three to four times a week.
Lopez also has personal trainers that help her maintain a toned and healthy body. She said, "When I’m in New York, I work out with David Kirsch—he’s an amazing trainer. When I’m in L.A., I work with Tracy Anderson. I like the balance that they both give me. They have two totally different approaches. I like switching it up with my body." She also emphasizes on getting eight hours of sleep every night.
She told Hello magazine, "I make it a priority to get eight hours' sleep a night." The singer also tries to never give into the cravings for junk food. Whenever she feels like she is craving for something, she always goes for protein. She revealed, "Protein is my go-to whenever I start having cravings. It fills me up and keeps me full longer. It's a great muscle fuel." She has a rule of not eating any food that is processed. She has a balanced and nutrient-rich diet with organic materials.
She keeps her diet balanced even while eating out at restaurants. "I'm a very social person and love spending time with my friends and family, so when we go out to eat I try to make healthy choices. Most restaurants offer healthy, low-calorie meals so I watch for things on the menu that fit my lifestyle," she said. She makes sure that even while snacking she is having healthy foods.
Lopez swears by sunscreen to protect her skin from any damage. She said, "I’m rarely in the sun, but if I am, I wear a lot of sunscreen. I’ve never been one to take a lot of sun, which is why my skin has maintained itself." She also washes her face every time after a workout to keep her pores clean and her skin healthy.
