Yesterday, my lovely team here at Adore HQ told me I looked older than Jennifer Lopez. She just turned 50. I’m almost 31.
They’re dead wrong. I look one year younger than J-Lo. According to the Daily Mail, a cosmetic surgeon predicted her facial age as 32 using mapping software.
So in light of that information, I decided to put my detective hat on and search every inch of the internet to get to the bottom of the curious case of Jennifer Lopez. What is her secret to ageing backwards? And are there any habits I can implement in my own life to slow down the ageing process?
After spending my afternoon investigating the conspiracy theory that is J-Lo, I’ll be scoring each of her habits out of five on a scale of practicality, because let’s face it, I ain't spending two hours a day at the gym.
Get Your Beauty Sleep
J-Lo told Us Weekly, “I love a good nine or 10 hours, but I can never get that. So seven or eight is mandatory. [If I don’t get it] I just don’t feel right. I start feeling crazy, I get emotional and I feel tired all the time.”
I love that a workaholic like J-Lo is spreading this message because in my twenties, I thought being overworked and under-slept meant being successful. I’ve had times where I would get five or six hours a night consistently, and I looked and felt like a wreck. Just like J-Lo, I make sure I get at least seven hours of sleep every single night.
