Jennifer Lopez has enjoyed the kind of career that many people dream about as she is a singer, dancer, businesswoman and actress. Lopez is also a fashion icon and she might be marrying former major league baseball player Alex Rodriguez sometime in the near future. The 51-year-old global superstar seems to be ageless when she appears in public. Some celebrity watchers believe her look is natural while others are curious if she has received some help along the way. Let’s take a look at the continuing J. Lo plastic surgery speculation to determine if there is a definitive answer to this question.
Earlier this year, Lopez shared a video of herself on Instagram trying out a new face mask that is part of her skincare line of products. One commenter on the video said that Lopez was not being completely honest with her fans and was not telling them exactly how she got her results. The online commenter wrote, “You definitely have Botox. And tons of it.”
In addition, another commenter wrote the following online message, “Love her. But let’s be real. That mask isn’t what gives her that skin. It’s lasers and her dermatologist and other treatments combined with her skincare. You can use that mask for the rest of your life and not have skin like that. This mask is like a chef giving you half the recipe to his secret sauce.”
J. Lo took to the Internet to defend herself and reply to the first commenter. She replied, “LOL that’s just my face!!! For the 500 millionth time…I have never done Botox or any injectables or surgery. Just sayin’”
In continued response to those claiming she had help from cosmetic surgery to achieve her movie star appearance, J. Lo decided to offer a few of her beauty secrets to the public. She also shared some tips and advice related to her new skincare line, JLO Beauty.
“Try spending your time being more positive, kind and uplifting of others (and) don’t spend your time trying to bring others down. That will keep you youthful and beautiful too. Sending you love #beautyfromtheinsideout #beautyhasnoexpirationdate
As part of the launch of her successful skincare line, Lopez insists that she can be “youthful and timeless at every age”. In addition, she decided to explain why she wants the public to stop lying about the appearance of her skin.
Lopez said, “I don’t judge anybody. If you want to do Botox and injectables, that’s fine! But I don’t want people lying on me and saying, ‘Oh, she’s trying to make believe that this stuff works.”
Besides claiming that her healthy skin is not the result of any type of cosmetic surgery procedure, Jennifer Lopez also says she is simply sharing what type of routine works for her when it comes to her skincare line.
When discussing one of the biggest reasons behind her youthful look. Lopez remarked “One of my big beauty secrets is that I try to be kind to others and lift up other women.” She added that she has always been honest about her life and asked for the public to stop spreading gossip about her looks. “Please don’t call me a liar. I don’t have to lie about things.”
Once Lopez had to go online to defend her appearance, her celebrity friends and supporters leaped to her defense in the comments section of her video:
Not all of the replies from her fans were negative. One of Lopez’s fans commented “I am not so sure about Botox. Look at her neck and her chest. She has no wrinkles anywhere on her body. I believe she may be lucky enough to not need Botox. She has obviously taken great care of herself.”
The gossip and speculation about Jennifer Lopez and plastic surgery is nothing new to her. There has been talk for years about her youthful appearance. It should be noted that Botox and injectables are not permanent solutions for turning back the clock. The amount of time that the results last depends on the amount of Botox or injectables placed in the body along with the type of injectable used by the doctor. If Jennifer Lopez does use Botox or injectables to gain her current look, she would need to have follow-up treatments on a regular basis to maintain her appearance.
Until there comes a time that Jennifer Lopez shares more information about her appearance, the public will need to trust her claim that she has not had plastic surgery in the past. While the speculation will likely continue, the public will not know anything more about her looks than what J. Lo shares with her fans.
