17 Sep Inspired by J. Lo’s “Morning Face?” Here’s How to Get It
Jennifer Lopez is at it again, showing off flawless makeup-free selfies and looking better at 51 than most of us looked at 18. However, unlike some other facets of celebrity aesthetics (like a perfectly shaped bum from personal trainers and surgeries) it actually is possible to get that morning “J. Glow” without breaking the bank or opting for high-risk procedures.
The latest way J. Lo broke the internet was with a Saturday morning selfie where she was genuinely makeup-free. This wasn’t like some other celeb “makeup-free selfies” (we’re not naming names) in which it’s clear they were actually wearing a full face of so-called natural-looking makeup. Lopez was clearly and truly makeup-free and didn’t even appear to have the microblading and eyelash extensions many “makeup-free” selfies feature. She captioned her Instagram “Good morning everyone!!! #MorningFace.”
So how can you get your own morning face that rivals J. Lo’s?
Natural Beauty … with the Right Treatments
The hashtag #MorningFace started to trend immediately after J. Lo’s post, with people across the world sharing their own morning natural beauty. Unfortunately, some of these shares were in the form of a meme with folks intentionally looking their worst while putting their photo next to J. Lo’s and captioning it “My morning face, J. Lo’s morning face.” Self-deprecating humor might be funny at times, but it will ultimately wear you down. The reality is that you really can have a #MorningFace like J. Lo if you have the right products and treatments.
The first step in achieving gorgeous, glowing skin is having a customized skin care regimen designed just for you. You won’t find any products in the stores or on non-clinical sites that will actually give you J. Lo results. That’s because over the counter (OTC) products are legally not allowed to have a high concentration of active ingredients found in medical-grade products. Plus, OTC products are full of fillers.
The Daily MorningFace Grind
Optimal skin health comes from a combination of daily at-home care and routine in-office treatments. You can’t have one without the other and expect skin like Lopez. Let’s start with your daily home routine first. When is the last time you talked to a professional about it? Or received a customized approach and recommendation? If it was even last season, you’re out of date. Remember that our skin changes with each season, and now with “maskne” making things even worse our skin is totally confused.
RefinedMD offers an impressive inventory of medical-grade products now available 24/7 thanks to our online store. You can certainly start shopping right now at our online store, but it’s best to connect with an expert first to figure out exactly which products are best for you. You probably need different products than you think, and likely fewer products! We’re always here to help you define, modify, and tweak your at-home skin care regimen to perfection.
But Home Care Alone isn’t Enough
Now that you’re on the fast track to personalizing an at-home skin care regimen, how can you speed up and maximize the process? This is where in-office treatments come in. Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive, fast, safe, and easy way to get results like J. Lo. One of the most popular options is broadband light therapy (BBL), which is the successor to the famed intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy. BBL works by delivering light energy to target areas, then gently heating up the superficial skin layers. Heat is absorbed to stimulate skin cell regeneration. Both of these treatments use light to correct a number of skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and dull or uneven skin.
Treatments are fast, so you can get in and out with minimal social interaction. Plus, at RefinedMD we’re following the latest CDC recommendations for maintaining a safe and sanitary environment. Most people need a few sessions spaced a week or so apart, with an average of an initial 3 – 5 sessions to really get that J. Lo glow.
Laser skin rejuvenation is just one option to take your skin to the next level, although it’s a great one! To learn more about the treatments and skin care products available at RefinedMD, give us a call today at (408) 688-2082.
