If there’s one thing Jennifer Lopez wants to prove, other than that she’s still “Jenny from the block,” it's that she hasn’t aged. And it's not just because July 24 (hey, that's today) is her birthday.

Earlier this year when the mother of 5-year-old twins promoted her music video for the single “I Luh Ya Papi," she Instagrammed throwback photos of herself, comparing them with how she looks today. And while some may be put off by these “look at me” posts, where she's proudly flaunting off her ageless features, well, there's no denying she's pretty accurate.

And we’re not just talking about the topknot she wore in the video — the same one that also made an appearance in 2001’s “I’m Real.”

“Indeed Jennifer appears to have turned back time in the video for ‘I Luh Ya Papi,’ as she also wears a jumpsuit very similar to the trademark Versace dress she wore to the Grammys in 2000,” reported the Daily Mail. “The singer opens up in the video for her latest single, taken from her upcoming eighth studio album, in a skin tight, plunging jumpsuit cut from a similar green jungle print to the iconic, revealing dress she wore at the turn of the millennium. Strutting across the room with a powerful stride, Jennifer looks even better than she did back in 2000.”

And what’s the secret to that J. Lo-glow, aside from wearing outfits similar to what she wore over a decade ago? For starters, the entertainer follows a strict beauty regimen to keep her features flawless.

“I’m a big believer in the basics. Less is more,” explains Lopez to Allure Magazine. “I get my cleanser from my dermatologist. I need a great cleanser because I’ve had to wear a lot of makeup for so many years. I use a very mild makeup remover and a very basic sunscreen-moisturizer combo, I and I try to get lots of sleep.”

Sounds simple, right? Well, there’s also one fancy cream she swears by.

The Daily Makeover is reporting one of Lopez’s favorite skincare products is Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream, a rich daily moisturizer that promises to protect against dryness and irritation, all while soothing skin from weather damage. It features avocado oil, as well as extracts from rose petal and rosehip to keep skin smooth, supple, and blemish-free.

As for her trimmed physique? You can thank celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Anderson for that. She tells that Lopez gets her exercise for an hour each day and cannot go two days without working out.

“30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of muscular structure,” adds Anderson on Lopez’s routine.
