Jennifer Lopez recently revealed that a former flame tried coercing her into getting Botox injections years ago. Lopez pushes natural beauty through skincare, exercising, and maintaining a healthy diet.
This routine is obviously working for the actress because, at 52, she looks as good if not better than she did 20 years ago. Lopez also admitted that she avoided plastic surgery and things related. So her looks are the result of genetics, a strict diet, exercise, and apparently pure good luck.

Botox is a temporary easy relief from wrinkles and other beauty worries. It is injected into the facial muscles to smooth out age lines and fill up lax skin; however, it inhibits the movement of the face. Lopez revealed that a former flame tried to get her to use Botox at the young age of 23.
How Lopez Managed To Stay Young
Lopez is one celebrity whose looks aren’t affected by time at all. Since she came on our screens decades ago, the actress has managed to look almost the same years after. Lopez has made the reason no secret and shared all her steps in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The artist went on Elle to list out the different things that make up her beauty regimen. She mentioned sunscreen, lots of sleep, serums, Vivir Sano, and supplements as some of them. Lopez also included routines while her mother and aunt raised her as a child.
She said, “Some of us had drier hair than others, and they’d take out a bottle of olive oil, and they’d put it in your hair. Then it would drip down onto your face, and the next day, your complexion looked like you were 10 years old.”
Due to her ageless beauty, it is no surprise that the actress is always at the receiving end of beauty questions. This has prompted the 52-year-old to branch out of the entertainment industry into business by opening her beauty line.
The actress shared that the most reoccurring question she got was about her skin and what she used on it, and this led to a lot of suspicions that Lopez had gone under the knife or at least done Botox before.
In response to these accusations, the dancer told USA Today, “ For the 500 millionth time … I have never done Botox or any injectables or surgery!! Just sayin’.” Despite her natural looks and alleged aversion to surgical cosmetic procedures, the actress revealed that she was once told to do Botox by an ex-boyfriend.
Lopez’s Boyfriend Wanted Her To Get Botox
In an interview with Elle, Lopez talked at length about her beauty regimen and how she was told to get Botox at the young age of 23. She said, “I was in my 20s, and I was dating this guy. He went to one dermatologist, and I went to another.”
“My dermatologist gave me a great cleanser and some sunscreen and said, ‘if you do this from now on, your skin is healthy, you’re young right now, it’s going to be great… the sunscreen is the thing,’” she said.
The singer then went to a second doctor with her previous boyfriend and got different surprising advice. The second doctor told her that she had an age line on her face and should start Botox injections. Lopez declined the offer, but her boyfriend thought differently.
Lopez revealed, “And I was like, ‘I’m going to pass.’ I didn’t like needles anyway, but the boyfriend’s like, ‘Yeah, you should start it. I do that. I was like, ‘No, thank you.” She added, “And I just wondered what would have happened to me if I would’ve started Botox at 23, what I would look like right now. My face would be a totally different face today.”
Why Lopez Doesn’t Think ‘You Look Good For 50’ Is A Compliment
Lopez is probably tired and used to being told she looked good for her age; however, the actress recently explained that she didn’t particularly like the compliment. This is solely because she thought anyone could look great regardless of age.

She said, “You never want to hear you look great for 59. They want to just hear you look great, no matter what age you are. And for me and the company, that is a big part of it. We don’t want people going; you look great for 60, 50, 40, 35. You want people to just go, ‘Wow, you look amazing.’”
Lopez’s Upcoming Skincare Line Will Have Sunscreen
Although Lopez has mentioned many things that she used over the years for her skin, she emphasized sunscreen. The actress started using sunscreen before she was 23 as a part of her skincare routine.
The “Wedding Planner” actress said that she encouraged everyone to start using sunscreen every day as far as they were up to 15 years old. She also mentioned that SPF would be in her upcoming skincare line. “That’s a big skincare secret that people kind of do but don’t do. They use moisturizers, but they don’t put on sunscreen every day. That is something I have done since I was 22 years old.
