Jennifer Lopez has said that she's never tried botox because it's not her 'thing'.
Spoiler alert - it has absolutely nothing to do with botox.
The 'Jenny from the Block' singer is often asked about her incredible skin and youthful looks, and she explained in a video back in 2020: "For years, the number one question that I have been asked is 'What do I do for my skin'?"
For her, that includes using secrets her mother taught her and natural ingredients like olive oil.
It also includes staying away from botox, as she once told the Daily Mail: "I haven't ever had botox to this day... I'm not that person. I don't have anything against people doing that; it's just not my thing. I'm more about a natural approach to skincare... but I want [my products] to work.
"I want the hyaluronic acid in there. I want the things that are going to help because I don’t want to have to go to the needles at some point. I’m not saying one day I won’t, but I haven't yet.
The icon's comments come following the release of her J.LO Beauty brand, which she explains focuses on natural ingredients: "I've tried everything. I've tried drugstore products, and I've tried the most expensive products, when I went back to was basically secrets my mom told me when I was young.
"Like how olive oil was kind of a cure-all for your hair, your skin, your nails, your body, you know, it was like nature's magic ingredient. That's the thing that makes that natural glow. It's pretty simple. These things work."
And that includes cutting her beauty routine down to a four-step process, as she revealed in a recent video.
Though it's not all about the skincare, the star reveals, it's also about how you feel on the inside, as she continued to say in a video promoting her new brand: "As women people are so ready to write us off once we're past 25-35. And I just kept waiting for that to happen.
"And then I realised, no, I'm not going to let that happen. One of my biggest affirmations is I am youthful and timeless at every age.
"It's about being powerful. It's about realising your own worth and understanding that we need to take care of ourselves. We have to be loving to ourselves. And that, you know, beauty really doesn't have an expiration date."
So, there you have it, J.Lo skips botox and goes for olive oil instead.
