Jennifer Lopez has been a fashion and beauty icon for decades, setting trends on and off the red carpet each year since one of her biggest breakout roles in "Selena" back in 1997.

Unsurprisingly, in 2014, she said that the thing her fans ask her about the most is her skin-care routine.

Fortunately, over the years the 51-year-old singer has been pretty open about her go-to products and the lifestyle habits that help her skin stay smooth and radiant. She's even released her own skin-care line.

Here's how Jennifer Lopez takes care of her skin:

Lopez has tried some temporary, extreme diets to prepare for roles but she seems to generally live a pretty healthy lifestyle

In 2019, she said she tried a 10-day no-carb, no-sugar challenge to prepare for her role as a stripper in "Hustlers." She later told Ellen DeGeneres that it was "really hard" because carbs and sugar make up "most of [her] diet."

And in 2018, the "Second Act" star told InStyle magazine that some of her health and beauty secrets entail avoiding caffeine, alcohol, and smoking. She has also said that working out and taking care of her body also contributes to her skin's health.

"I think drinking lots of water and [eating] fresh foods with lots of fruits and vegetables all play into the quality of [my] skin's appearance," she told People magazine in 2016.

She's also said 'good genes' have blessed her with beautiful skin

In a 2014 appearance on "Today," Lopez gave credit to her genetics for her seemingly flawless skin. 

"I have to say, I have good genes, you know. My mom and my grandma have beautiful skin, so I was blessed with that, and I'm fortunate in that way," she said. 

Lopez reportedly uses a lot of high-end skin-care products

Aside from her genetics and lifestyle habits, the "Limitless" singer reportedly has an arsenal of skin-care products at her disposal to help keep her complexion in tip-top shape.

In 2016, Lopez told Hello magazine that she uses a few prestige products to get her glow, including Lancer The Method: Cleanse, Lancer's Eye Contour Lifting Cream, and Dr. Hauschka's Rose Day Cream, all of which retail between $45 and $95.

One of her makeup gurus, Mary Phillips, told Well + Good in 2018 that Lopez is a fan of Själ's Saphir Concentrate, an anti-aging facial oil made with aquamarine, botanical retinol, blue chamomile, and a biomarine complex, which costs around $175.

And in 2018, her makeup artist Scott Barnes told PopSugar that the one product Lopez "swears by" is cult-favorite moisturizer Crème de la Mer, which sells for between $85 and $2,160 per pot.

She's also made it clear that she takes sun safety seriously

You likely won't find the "I'm Real" singer basking in the sun for hours sans protection because she takes her skin's safety seriously. 

In 2016, she also told People magazine, "SPF is k-e-y" and that she uses moisturizers with SPF every day. In 2018, she told InStyle magazine that she generally tries not to stay out in the sun for too long. 

She also prioritizes sleep

For Lopez, getting enough sleep is crucial. In 2018, she told InStyle magazine that in terms of skin care, her "number-one tip is to always get enough sleep"

She said she'd ideally like to sleep for nine or 10 hours per night but she always makes sure she rests for at least eight.

Lopez said she is also diligent about taking off her makeup every single night

Lopez told People magazine in 2016 that she doesn't go to bed without taking her makeup off. This is a good call considering sleeping with makeup on can cause one's pores to clog, which can lead to the development of acne. 

You probably won't find her in full glam when she's off-duty

In 2018, Lopez told InStyle magazine that she gives her skin a break on her days off. She said despite her glamorous red-carpet looks, she tends to wear "little to no makeup" when she isn't working.
