Aniston & Tanning: Jennifer Aniston Needed A Tanning Intervention, Reveals New Lifestyle Choices

Jennifer Aniston had a tanning addiction of sorts, and the actress says that she needed an intervention to give herself a break from the sun. According to Vanity Fair, Aniston previously admitted to spending about 20 minutes in the sun (at least) every day back in 2012. She has since changed her ways.

“I gave myself a sun-tanning intervention a few years ago, where I was basically saying, ‘Let’s just quit while we’re ahead.’ I was not great as a kid with sunscreen. That’s one of my big regrets. Now I use Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer S.P.F. 15,” Aniston said.

Jennifer Aniston’s tanning days may be over, but she’s working on herself in other ways.

“We’re going to feel good about ourselves if we see another woman who is 50 and rocking it. If society is telling you to sit it out after 40, you diminish yourself. Believe what you feel. If you feel crappy about yourself, it’s going to show,” she said.

According to People Magazine, Aniston is all about S.P.F., and realizes that damage from the sun is no joke. However, Aniston is giving up more than just tanning. She also said that she’s depending less on makeup, as well.

“I’m less attached to [makeup] now, and Justin [Theroux] loves me without,” she said. “… When I was filming Cake, I didn’t wear any makeup. I was taken aback by how nervous I got about walking outside and knowing that there was probably going to be a whole group of photographers, but then I just let go and I didn’t care. And over the next five weeks of shooting that, I really loved it. I wasn’t attached [to makeup]. If anything, putting on makeup felt so weird,” she added.

Of course that doesn’t mean that Jen doesn’t ever wear makeup. She added that Justin loves when she “smokes up” her eyes for a night out.

Also on Jennifer’s new list of things to do to stay beautiful is drink tons of water.

“I drink water endlessly. Like five [bottles] a day. Now it’s just such habit. There are so many lazy water drinkers,” she said.

Aniston might not be tanning anymore, but she’s got big things in store. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Aniston has plans to release a cookbook. She is really into this whole “lifestyle thing” (as she calls it), and wants to help other people be their best selves with a “delicious diet.”
