There has been much speculation over what products JLo (Jennifer Lopez, actress/singer) uses to get her glowing skin. Now what know a little more about what JLo skin care is like. We finally received an answer to what moisturizer she uses on What What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.The big shock was that she does not in fact use the highly speculated Creme De La Mer products. Which are extremely high end and expensive.
She could afford the expensive cream, so everyone assumed it must be fact. For years we assumed her dewy complexion was out of reach. Now we have the answer and it’s a lot more affordable and accessible than we thought. Though it’s not dirt cheap and affordable for everyone, it’s affordable to many more who are after that JLo glow. The star’s go-to moisturizer for years and year is none other than Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream. It’s available at Whole Foods and free of the toxic additives most moisturizers contain. No parabans, preservatives, or toxic fillers. The brand boasts:
- Our products are certified natural, containing the highest-quality plant and mineral ingredients
- We carefully choose every ingredient based on its individual effects on the skin, as well as the way it interacts with other ingredients
- We carefully research every plant’s origin, making sure it comes from an ecologically and ethically sound source
- We carefully design and manufacture packaging that enables us to keep our products free of artificial preservatives
The Rose Day Cream comes in two distinct formulas. A heavier regular Rose Day Cream and a Light Rose Day Cream. The regular heavy version is great for normal, dry, and sensitive skin types. If your skin is on the slightly oilier side or if you live in hot and humid climates the light version is for you! Living in the Miami heat and humidity I opted for the light version. Can’t wait to report back my experience.
Rose is a great ingredient with lots of benefits: antibacterial, moisturizes dry skin, fights inflammation, treats some skin diseases such as psoriasis and dermatitis, diminish skin pigmentation, vapor has the ability to protect against oxidative stress, and a safe anti-depressant and anti-anxiety treatment. It has also been used against hormonal acne and hormonal imbalance. The tiniest amount is shown to have some effect, but the ingredient is very expensive. Wonder why she doesn’t just buy the pure rose oil and swim in a pool of it? That’s what I would do. 😉
I would like to add that since this cream does not contain preservatives it will go bad (as products should). It will be good for about 3-4 months or so. I recommend buying from a place that is authorized to sell the product and you know the turn around is high. To be safe go with the official website. You want to have the freshest product and have it last as long as possible. That in mind, the moisturizer should run you about $180 per year. Not too bad for a JLo glow and even better you are not adding toxic chemicals into your body.
Obviously, she also has good genes and likely gets regular facial peels to help achieve that signature glow.
Update since this post was originally done on my previous blog: Since I personally started to use this moisturizer, I have noticed a difference. See my list HERE for my entire skin care routine.
