She's not afraid to try out new and trendy spa treatments and she's never shied away from questions about whether she has had cosmetic surgery done or not...But it can't just be expensive skin care & surgery that's kept her looking glowing at the age of 54. Here's what she's revealed...

3. She's always stuck to her morning wellness routine

Each morning, Jennifer drinks a glass of celery juice followed by a diluted shot of apple cider vinegar to help lower her blood sugar and cholesterol.
"You have to wait a half-hour [to eat], so that's when the meditation happens,"
she added.
"I have to force myself not to go right to my coffee."

4. She has a simple yet effective skincare routine

When it comes to her glowing, wrinkle-free skin, Jennifer stresses the importance of a good skincare routine. The 54 year old says there is no need to break the bank with expensive creams and serums but to just not over wash your face and take care of yourself from the inside out.

5. It's all about SPF ladies!

Aniston shared in her Well + Good interview,
"My whole face regime is just soap and water to wake myself up, then some sort of Aveeno daily moisturizer that's got SPF in it. It's quick. I never linger too long anywhere, to be honest; things need to be as easy as possible [for me].

6. So what skincare does she actually use?

Jennifer uses her favourite Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar, followed by a toner. She exfoliates 3 times a week and uses different serums before finishing with her Aveeno moisturiser. Not forgetting about the SPF of course to protect her skin especially now she's older and her skin is more delicate as time goes on.

7. She doesn't shy away from using fancy devices

8. She takes care of 'The Rachel'

Jen's hair has always been a topic of conversation since 'the Rachel' haircut was welcomed into our lives. Always sleek, always shiny, Jennifer's launched her own plant based haircare line called LolaVie which she thanks for her gorgeous glossy tresses.

9. A balanced diet is key

Aniston's admitted that at one time she was 'afraid of the breadbasket' but has slowly eased into a balanced life when it comes to eating. Her diet includes a shake packed with berries and leafy greens and admits that she loves life more now that she enjoys everything in moderation.

10. She follows the 16:8 rule

Word has it that Jennifer actually follows the 16:8 Intermittent Fasting practice which means fasting for 16 hours and then eating all of her meals within the remaining 8 hours. Most of her meals are high in protein and low in fat, fresh fruits, veggies and lean fish.

11. Staying hydrated is a must

Everybody knows that staying hydrated is key and a very important part of your diet. Aniston always has a water bottle to hand and ensures she stays hydrated throughout her long working days especially when she's jet setting all over the globe for work.

12. Exercise is an important part of her schedule

Who feels beautiful after a workout? Because Jennifer Aniston apparently does!
"I feel really beautiful when I finish a great workout,"
Aniston told 
Glamour UK
"Because I'm taking care of the one body I have." 
Aniston works out five days per week combines low impact with high intensity workouts.

13. Her workout sessions

Her five-day-a-week workout schedule involves elliptical (a bike - I know I was wondering WTF that meant too...), treadmill, yoga, pilates, spinning and boxing. She also advocates for moving your body everyday, so if she's not working out, she's still keeping herself busy.

14. She takes collagen every day

Aniston has mentioned that she takes collagen everyday in the form of a powder that she puts in her drinks in the morning. The collagen powder helps with her skin, hair, nails and joints and has said her hair and nails have never felt stronger.

15. She does love a pricey spa treatment, of course

Aniston loves a micro current facial, which she says acts as a workout to her face. It involves an aesthetician placing electronically charged pads on her face to stimulate the facial muscles. It's supposed to tighten and tone the skin - could be a fad, could be the reason why she looks no older than 40.

16. She's a sucker for infrared saunas as well

She loves them so much that she has one in her home...
"I have an infrared sauna that I fell in love with. My friend Courteney Cox — you may know her — had a portable infrared sauna that you go into. It kind of looks like a little igloo. It's such a game changer in terms of your skin detoxification and cell rejuvenation. So that I do a couple times a week right after I do the gym. I've noticed a real change in my energy, and my sleep, and my skin."

17. Royal jelly is her thing

Jennifer doesn't shy away from trying weird and wacky products, all in the name of beauty. She told Women's Health magazine that she uses Royal Jelly that she bought in France, which comes from beehives. She claims that it helps her skin keep that youthful glow.

18. Not everything in her skincare routine comes with a hefty price tag

Being the Aveeno spokesperson, she told Shape in 2017 that every Sunday is her spa day. After she gets a mini facial, a good scrub and uses a mask, she then covers her skin in Aveeno Positively Radiant Hydrating Facial and leaves it on overnight so that she wakes up with glowing, dewy skin.

19. She exfoliates three times a week

As well as spending her Sundays having a facial, she also likes to do at-home facial scrubs three times a week. She explains that it is important not to over wash or over scrub your skin as it's not needed and will only cause more problems for you if anything.

20. Less is more when it comes to makeup

Aniston told Vogue magazine in 2017
, "I think over the years, everything's just continued to get simpler. Less is more, less makeup, less fuss, and just more natural, which I kind of prefer. My skin care treatment is very simple. I've found that anytime I try to do some kind of fancy hair or makeup routine or skin care routine, it gets more complicated."

21. Skincare is always her top priority, even on long flights

When Aniston is jetting all over the world, she still makes sure to keep up with her beauty routine. She takes her makeup off using her Aveeno makeup removers, she carries a spray bottle of Evian to keep her skin hydrated and wipes her face down with a toner before putting her moisturiser and SPF on. Sometimes she will even whack a mask on.

22. Supplements are a big part of her diet too

The 54-year-old admits that she used to turn her nose up at avocados because of high in fat they are. But after researching things, she realised that they're some of the best items of food you can eat. She also loves Ginger as it's high in antioxidants and asparagus too.

24. Meditation has always been an important part of her morning routine

Jen An does 20 minutes of meditation each morning and night. She admits that it's been helping her go to sleep and that even though she doesn't get that five o'clock time that she would love to, she still manages to fit it into her daily routine. Her morning meditation is most important.

25. 30 minutes of spin, 40 minutes of yoga

Jennifer likes to do 30 minutes of spinning and then 40 minutes of yoga, incorporating 'hybrid' yoga poses paired with toning exercises. She's always been a fan of yoga and enjoys doing power yoga, vinyasa flow and then yin yoga stretching before getting into her infrared sauna.

26. She knows when she's had enough

Over the years, she's come to learn to listen to her body and not to overdo it. When it comes to her crazy work schedule, she says she likes to take walks and not be too neurotic about working out. When it's time to take a break, it's time to take a break and not worry about putting on those extra pounds.

27. Mario Badescu the pimple popper

When it comes to zits, Jennifer Aniston is no stranger to them. Just like the rest of us she suffers with her bad skin days, but when that happens, she always turns to Mario Badescu's drying lotion that she's used for years and years. It's a cult favourite used by many celebrities.

28. Eye masks for when she's relaxing

By now we can all tell that Jennifer is big on her skincare routine so taking care of her eyes is very important. Her eye mask of choice is Shiseido's Benefiance Wrinkle Resist24 Pure Retinol express Smoothing Eye Mask. It's a little more on the expensive side but she swear by its ability to smooth crow's feet and plump fine lines.

29. The importance of a good breakfast

imagesource: Reddit 
After her morning routine, she tends to start the day off with lukewarm lemonade, a shake, smoothie or eggs with avocado. She tends to add egg whites to her oatmeal as an extra source of protein and her smoothies tend to be fully or berries, bananas, cherries and some health add ons.

30. A cold splash of water to the face

Cold water is said to reduce signs of aging, such as wrinkles and Aniston practices this trick each day to keep herself looking young and healthy. She's also spoke out about the negative effects that hot water has on your hair. Cold water boosts the immune system and increases your levels of oxygen in your blood.

31. She prioritizes her inner beauty, too

image source:
As we know all too well, how you're feeling on the inside can affect how you treat yourself on the outside - so it's always important to take care of the mental and emotional as much as the physical. She's a fan of digital detoxing and waking up without her phone.

32. She's always trying to challenge her body (in a good way)

image source:
Jennifer also likes to keep challenging her body, instead of falling into a workout slump where you're just doing the same exercise all the time. She's always trying to do new and difference exercises to keep the routine fresh, and to keep her body interested in the workout.

33. And now... skincare tips for over 30s! Is it too late?

image source:
If you can't get on board with Jennifer's amazing (but tiring) routine, here are some other things you can do to look after your skin over 30, for the years beyond! And no - of course it's never too late to start taking better care of your skin, and better steps for a skincare routine that works for you!

34. Make sure to understand your skin type

image source:
Your skin is always changing, and especially when you move into your 30s, so even if you've always had dry skin, there's always a chance you could have oily or sensitive skin when you get older! Just make sure to keep tabs on your skin type so you know which products to get to suit that.

35. It's time to stop using wipes

image source:
If you're still using face wipes to remove your makeup in your 30s and beyond, it's time to ditch and make a switch! The skin on your face will be less resilient that it was in your teens and 20s when you took your makeup of, so the alcohol in some wipes can make your skin's barrier imbalanced.

36. Be kind to your skin - don't overload it

image source:
With so many great products out there, it's tempting to buy a bucket-load and try lots of different things, but even if you don't have sensitive skin, your skin still needs a gentle touch. Try not to pile on the products, give your skin chance to breathe and don't use anything too harsh.

37. Now might be the time for that dermatologist appointment

image source:
There's no shame - or at least nothing to be afraid of! - in making a dermatologist appointment for some tailored advice. If you have a specific skincare worry that's flaring up, it can always help to get professional input. Some skin conditions can't be tackled with generic products, after all.

38. Make sure you're not depending on micellar water

image source:
Micellar water is a great cleanser in a fix, but it's a not a long-term replacing for actually washing your face. Micellar water eliminates the need to splash your face, but they need support in what they do. So you can use them to wipe your face and get rid of makeup, but you should follow this with a proper face wash!

39. You might want to invest more in serums

image source:
There's such a huge focus on the big product items, like cleansers and moisturizers - and rightly so - that this is what most people spend most money on. Then, any 'extras' like serums and targeted creams are usually left with a cheaper price tag. But actually the serums are a key step for over 30s skin, so you might want to spend more on those, and less on moisturizer.

40. You'll need a different routine AM and PM

image source:
A lot of people think that if they have a good skincare routine, it can be the same morning and night, every single day. But it's actually important to switch up your routine for AM and PM, because some products will be more important than others - like moisturizer in the AM, and night cream in the PM!

41. DON'T forget your SPF!

image source:
It's easily done, especially when you're focusing so much on moisturizers and other products, but sun damage is one of the worst things you can do for your aging skin and your skin health. So make sure to be applying SPF every single day, regardless of whether you have makeup on or not!

42. Add some exfoliation into your weekly routine

image source:
Just like Jen Aniston said for her own routine, exfoliation really does make all the difference - and it's something many people forget about, just like SPF. Exfoliation is there to buff away dead skin cells and revitalize your skin, so try for at least once a week - but don't overdo it!

43. Try retinol for anti-aging

image source:
Retinol, or vitamin A, is definitely something every over-30 should have in their skincare arsenal. It's not something you had to worry about too much in your 20s! Retinol helps with cellular development and general good skin maintenance, so it's a good support for aging skin.

44. Definitely don't skip your makeup removal!

image source:
We know how sometimes it's easy to think 'oh just this once' and go to bed with a face full of makeup because you've had a
bad day and just want to go to bed. But this is one of the worst things you can do, because the skin works to repair itself overnight, and all that will happen instead is clogged pores from the day's dirt buildup!

45. Sleep is as much skincare as everything else

image source:
Sleep is so important for your skin's repair process, and for your overall health of course, so if you're spending a bunch of time and money on the best of the best skincare products only to get by on a few hours sleep, you won't be doing your skin any favors! From 30 onwards, try for at least 7-8 hours sleep.

46. And your diet is, too!

image source:
And, of course, what you eat is going to reflect through your skin! So if you really want to look after your skin and make sure those expensive (or budget-friendly) skincare products don't go to waste, make sure you're eating a healthy, varied diet too - avoid overloading on greasy junk food!

47. Hydration is key

image source:
The Holy Grail of skincare (and everything else) is, of course, drinking plenty of water. Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with around 3 litre of water a day, and take a bottle round with you wherever you go to make sure you don't forget! Remember - it's one thing Jennifer Aniston said she never forgets!

48. Treat yourself to a facial every now and then

image source:
A facial is more than just an expensive extravagance - it actually does wonders for your skin. Even if you just have one every couple of months, it's better than none at all! The ideal would be once a month, but we know how expensive that can get. But if you're looking for spoiling your skin (in the good, night on the town way), this is it.

49. Eye creams are just as important

image source:
In all the skincare commotion, don't forget the tiny bit of skin beneath your eyes! This is such a problem area for women over 30 struggling with heavy bags and dark circles, and that's what eye cream is here to help with. Even if you're putting moisturizer under your eyes, use a targeted eye cream, too.

50. Most importantly: do what works for you!

image source:
It's definitely information overload when it comes to skincare. What matters is you do what works for you, when and within your budget. You don't need to buy the most expensive item on the shelf. And if you need to wash your face at 7pm because you know you'll be tired by 9, go for it!
