On working out:

I love the way working out makes me feel, so I try to keep my body hydrated and well rested after every workout so I’m ready to hit it hard again the next day. I drink plenty of water, fuel my body with healthy foods and make it a priority to get eight hours of sleep a night. I also love to relax with my kids after a workout and share a healthy snack with them!

On her skin:

Washing my face after training is essential. That helps keep my pores clean and my skin feeling healthy. Then I’ll usually put on moisturizer and sunscreen and maybe just a little make-up if I’m going out, or a moisturizer and eye cream if it’s the evening.

… says 47 year-old Jennifer.

On her workouts:

“It’s no secret that I love dancing, so it doesn’t even feel like exercise to me. I freestyle dance with Tracy Anderson five times a week. We’ll incorporate light weights (3 lbs) for the arms and moves that focus on the butt and thighs and engage the core. We do hour-long circuits at least three times a week. Its full-body training — so planks, pushups, boxing — really everything. It’s all about changing it up and keeping your body guessing.”

… says 46 year-old Jennifer.

Jennifer Lopez: “I don’t drink or smoke or have caffeine”

JLo-Us-Weekly

On what she avoids:

“I don’t drink or smoke or have caffeine. That really wrecks your skin as you get older.”

On what she loves:

“We eat a lot of green vegetables, asparagus, Brussel sprouts, broccoli and kale… I love to cook, I cook a lot of stuff, I love cooking Puerto Rican food because that’s what I grew up on.”

On having 2 trainers:

“When I am in New York I work out with David Kirsch – he’s an amazing trainer. When I’m in LA, 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.”

On skincare:

“I am 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.”

On getting enough sleep:

“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.”

… says Jennifer.
