If you're like us, when you're looking at a photo of glow queen JLo, your thoughts alternate between "What is this sorcery?!" and "Tell us your secrets, woman!" Thankfully, the 52-year-old superstar—who will next be seen in a Netflix documentary, Halftime, out June 13—did just that by giving a little insight into that much-coveted Jennifer Lopez skincare routine. 

This past April, the Marry Me actress took posted an Instagram video—which has racked up a casual five million views—that revealed both her daily affirmations ("Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties") and her refreshingly straightforward morning skin regimen. (Also, please take note of her custom bedazzled "Jennifer" robe. We need one ASAP!)

The bare-faced beauty revealed that she washed her face with a cleanser from her eponymous JLo Beauty brand while in the shower. She follows that up with a few pumps of the brand's serum all over her face and neck. "It's vitamins for the face, so I like to think of it as taking my vitamins for the morning," the star tells the camera.

After letting the serum soak in for a second, Lopez slathers on some sunscreen. "Sunscreen is really important and has been one of my beauty secrets since I was in my late teens, early twenties," she says. Amen to that! (Check out our best sunscreen for face guide to find the perfect SPF for you.)

She finishes her face off with a touch of eye cream. "It's always nice to have a little extra moisture." A JLo pro-tip? She also puts a pat of eye cream in the space between her brows.

And that's it! Who would've guessed that a mega-star skincare routine would take less than five minutes?!

Here are the four simple JLo Beauty products that the star uses in her beauty regimen:

1. Cleanser


JLo Beauty That Hit Single Gel-Cream Cleanser

Lopez begins her skincare routine by removing her make-up and unclogging her pores with this gel creme cleanser, taking it all the way down to her neck. 

2. Serum


JLo Beauty That JLo Glow Serum with Olive Complex

JLo then moves on to her glow-boosting, moisturizing serum, using her That JLo Glow Serum, which she reportedly sent back to the lab 23 times until it was the perfect formula.

3. Sunscreen


JLo Beauty That Big Screen Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Lopez's daytime skincare isn't complete without a broad spectrum SPF for that all-important sun protection. "One of my secrets to, I think, keeping me as youthful as people like to say I look, I believe is from SPF 30 and using it every single day as my moisturizer," she said on social media. 

4. Eye cream


JLo Beauty That Fresh Take Eye Cream with Peptides

Last but not least, the triple threat finishes off her routine with a few pats of her That Fresh Take eye cream, which she applies delicately under her eyes as well as in the space between her brows.

Now go and get your glow on!
