Jennifer Lopez may have her own skin-care line, but, according to her latest On the JLo newsletter, her biggest beauty secret has nothing to do with applying products.
“We don’t value sleep,” writes the star. “We value grinding and working hard—and admittedly, nobody gets caught up in that rat race more than me. I’ve found, however, that sleep to me is the most underrated beauty secret out there.”
Adding that she tries to nail down seven to nine hours per night for the ultimate glow, Lopez says she lives by what she pins as “the five S’s:” sunscreen, serum, supplements, sano (or “sound mind” in spanish) and sleep.
Looking back on a panic attack she says was a result of little sleep, she writes, “One day, I was sitting in a trailer, and all the work and the stress it brought with it, coupled with not enough sleep to recuperate mentally, caught up with me…I went from feeling totally normal, to thinking about what I needed to do that day and all of a sudden I felt as if I couldn’t move. I was completely frozen.” After visiting a doctor who told her she needs more sleep, getting proper Z’s has been at the top of her to-do list.
“As I slept more and took care of myself, I realized it was about pro-living versus anti-aging,” she says. “Sometimes I wake up and say, ‘Wow! I just lost 10 years off my face!’ That’s what a good night’s sleep can do for you, and it accumulates over time…So go get your sleep!”
