Jennifer Lopez has declared getting a good night's sleep is her ultimate beauty secret.
The 52-year-old actress and singer is adamant a minimum of seven hours shut-eye is more effective than any expensive moisturiser and it's a key part of her beauty regime - which she describes as the 5 Ss: sunscreen, serum, supplements, sano (living well) and sleep.
In the latest edition of her 'On The JLo' newsletter, Jennifer explained: " We don't value sleep. 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. It's one of the tenets of JLo Beauty and part of my 5 S's: Sunscreen, Serum, Supplements, (vivir) Sano and SLEEP!
"Getting at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night can be a game changer."
She went on to reveal she went through a stage in her 20s when her career was taking off and she was sleeping for less than five hours a night.
The 'On The 6' star confessed exhaustion led to crippling panic attacks and she resolved to start living a healthier lifestyle by embracing wellness.
Jennifer added: "Since then, I've tried to live a very healthy and balanced life. As I slept more and took care of myself, I realised it was about pro-living versus anti-aging ... I think of sleep like a little time machine. You lay down and you go into a space where you preserve yourself and then you come out a new, younger person than you were before."
Jennifer concluded by insisting she often looks 10 years younger after getting a really good night's sleep.
She went on: "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. For better or for worse, the pandemic slowed us all down, and it definitely slowed me down and made me realise that all we have control of is ourselves. So get your sleep!"
