13 Reasons January Jones Looks Half Her Age

We're not sure exactly when it was that we first became fans of January Jones. Was it her most iconic role to date as Betty Draper? Or smaller "Oh my god, it's January Jones!" roles in classic films like Love Actually circa 2003? Either way, we have major love for the actress's quirky real-life demeanor and, of course, amazing style and beauty aesthetic. (We have dozens of screenshots on our camera rolls to prove it.) Between her practically pore-less complexion, playful approach to makeup, and super-shiny strands, we desperately want to know all her beauty secrets, especially considering she looks roughly half her 41 years.

We're super appreciative that we're not alone in our admiration, and Jones regularly listens to her fans' Instagram requests by posting ample intel about her beauty routine—from the supplements she swears by to the extensive skincare rituals she credits her glowing skin to. We did some major digging (the kind of digging that takes us from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.) to compile a 13-point list featuring all of Jones's best beauty tips, secrets, and favorite products. Keep scrolling! Ahead, 13 reasons January Jones looks half her age.

After perusing her Instagram, we noticed she stays loyal to her skincare treatment plan and regularly visits Jason Diamond, MD, in Beverly Hills for non-surgical Diamond InstaFacials, which entail lasering, injections of platelet-rich plasma (from the patient), micro-needling, and a soothing mask to finish. 

"I just recently tried the PRP blood facial or 'vampire facial' by @drjasondiamond and am starting to see the results of that, it was fascinating, I’m trying to decide if it was worth the $$. I'll let you know," she explains in this post.

We see Jones decked out in white face masks more than we do her chic swimsuits. Here's a few we've spotted in her bathroom cabinets in addition to the ones she says are her current favorites (including the infamous Hanacure All-in-One Facial, $29).

"These are my current favorite masks for exfoliating and moisture," she explains in an Instagram caption. "These change all the time depending on what my skin is needing,(factoring in weather, travel and stress)."

"My face washes and a gentle exfoliator—I only wash my face at night, in the morning I splash water or spray rose water so I don't lose the previous night's moisture," she shares in her IG post here

10. She Applies These 5 Serums Every Single Day

"These are all my fav serums which I rotate," says Jones. "Some for a.m. some for p.m., but I use all of them daily."

11. She Hydrates After She Applies Retinol Each Night

"These are the retinols from Shani Darden for every skin type (unless pregnant or nursing), Texture Reform is a tad lighter and can be used every night, I use the Retinol Reform every other night," she explains

"My face oils and balms are reserved for before bedtime only, after the Active Serum or Retinol," Jones adds.

12. She Banned Body Lotions

"I stopped using lotions and instead dry brush my skin before I bathe and then use oil-based scrubs in the shower or an oil afterward," she explains.

13. She Balances Beauty Supplements and Burgers


We love the actress's approach to #balance. Here, she shares her dedication to glow- and health-boosting supplements like probiotics, enzymes, collagen, vitamin C, and Sakara's Beauty and Detox Water Drops, but she's also transparent about the joy of pairing burgers with Pilates.

Beauty Director

Erin has been writing a mix of beauty and wellness content for Who What Wear for over four years. Prior to that, she spent two and half years writing for Byrdie. She now calls Santa Monica home but grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota, and studied writing, rhetoric, and communication at University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. She studied abroad in Galway, Ireland, and spent a summer in L.A. interning with the Byrdie and Who What Wear family. After graduating from UW, she spent one year in San Francisco, where she worked as a writer for Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen before moving down to L.A. to begin her career as a beauty editor. She considers her day-to-day beauty aesthetic very low-maintenance and relies on staples like clear brow serum (from Kimiko!), Lawless's Lip Plumping Mask in Cherry Vanilla, and an eyelash curler. For special occasions or days when she's taking more meetings or has an event, she'll wear anything and everything from Charlotte Tilbury (the foundations are game-changing), some shimmer on her lids (Stila and Róen do it best), and a few coats of the best mascara-type product on earth, Surratt's Noir Lash Tint.
