Jennifer Lopez‘s age-defying beauty has many scratching their heads about how the multi-hyphenate star looks and acts so youthful ahead of her 50th birthday in July.

It’s hard to believe that Jennifer Lopez will be turning 50 on July 24. She’s looks like she’s aging backward.

Clearly, she’s doing something right! 

Here’s a few ways J. Lo stays fit and youthful by making her health a priority. Eschewing strict, bland diets or a rigid workout schedule, the radiant superstar focuses on getting plenty of sleep — at least 7 to 9 hours a night (“10 or 11 hours on a day off”) — and drinking lots of water.

She never skips a workout

She fuels up with protein and veggies

Lopez also shared the secret to how she juggles it all: not thinking about anything except what’s in front of her.

“I just take it day by day, because it’s so much stuff, and I try not to worry about too much,” she says. “When I leave here. I’ll go home, have a nice dinner, then I’ll go to my bedroom, have a nice bath. I’ll have a chocolate cookie with milk, I’ll watch TV. And then I’m like, okay, tomorrow is full out.”

Unless it has anything to do with her 10-year-old twins Emme and Max, both of whom Lopez prioritizes over any of her jobs.

“If her kids are calling or FaceTiming, no matter what is going on, Jennifer picks it up,” says fellow World of Dance judge Derek Hough. “She can be in the middle of a comment [on the show], and she’ll go, ‘Oh, my kids are calling me.’ Her priority is her family — it’s been a lovely thing to see.”

Speaking with emmy magazine, the Shades of Blue actress, who recently released the music video for her latest single “Dinero,” reveals she has no plans to slow down — either her active lifestyle or her in-demand career — any time soon.

“Listen, at some point, I’m going to age,” Lopez jokes. “They’ll say, She looks old! But, right now, I’m holding it together.” —People
