It’s 2023, we’re in an on-again-off-again relationship with a worldwide pandemic, AI is threatening to take over the world/our jobs, Joe Jonas will get his forehead wrinkles injected, and we’re all residing in a simulation. At the least, that’s type of the way it feels once I sit down to talk with Joe this morning about all issues anti-aging (can we even say that phrase anymore? Joe thinks so. Perhaps.), together with how a couple of drinks and a dance with a beard trimmer left him with half an eyebrow, and, most significantly, which function of his face would he by no means wish to surgically change/alter/take away in 50 years (once more, when AI turns into our overlord).
First, for all the followers—or haters! Welcome!–studying this: Joe Jonas is legitimately good, regular, and chill (and I say this from a profession of working with lots of the celebs you watch “wtf” tales about on TikTok). We like Joe. Joe is nice folks.
Which might be why it actually didn’t really feel like B.S. when—the day after he/the Jonas Brothers obtained their Hollywood Walk of Fame star—he explains his option to companion with Xeomin, an injectable neurotoxin that smooths traces and wrinkles (assume: Botox, however cleaner and purer).
“I’ve been smartening up throughout, actually attempting to learn labels, do the analysis, and get a good suggestion of what I’m placing in and on my physique,” Joe tells me. “I actually preferred that Xeomin was a smart toxin, and I actually preferred the outcomes greater than something.”
He first received his high quality traces injected final 12 months, and since then, “lots of the dialog has been particularly about how guys don’t discuss [injectables] and attempting to interrupt that stigma that it’s ‘bizarre’ or embarrassing, particularly once I know lots of my man associates have carried out it,” he says.
And no, you’re not the one one who has seen Joe’s clean, guitar-holding face on Xeomin pop-up ads over the previous few months. “Lots of people wrote me and mentioned, ‘This you? Actually? Cool,’” he says. “I received lots of texts [from friends], like ‘ought to I get this? Is it good?’ and I’ve had associates since go and get the therapy, so it’s cool to see the convo change round it.”
Joe’s first wax
However lest you assume Joe has at all times been on the slicing fringe of magnificence developments and skincare decisions, pls keep in mind that Joe is human—simply, , a well-known one, whose magnificence mishaps are seen on a worldwide stage. “I’ve had a pair Residence Alone moments the place you’re simply slapping your face with aftershave,” he says. And, (un)fortunate for him, each concerned his eyebrows.
“The primary time I ever received my eyebrows waxed, I went with my mother the day earlier than college to this place in New Jersey that I don’t assume was used to guys’ eyebrows,” he says. “And so they simply went off on my eyebrows. I keep in mind the primary day of faculty sporting a beanie this low”—he pulls an imaginary beanie to his eyeballs—”as a result of I used to be so embarrassed.”
“Additionally, it was so crimson and my mother was like, ‘Why don’t I simply cowl it up with make-up so it blends in?’” he says. “And again then, I used to be like, ‘No! I’m not gonna put on make-up to high school on day one! So I simply determined to go for a beanie in September, which was nonetheless method too heat.”
Joe and the half-eyebrow
One other core magnificence reminiscence for Joe? “I keep in mind I had a drink or two the evening earlier than [an event] and thought it was a good suggestion to scrub up my eyebrows with my beard trimmer,” he says. “I assumed it will be high quality, after which I awoke and was like, ‘Oooh, no. Effectively, it’s kinda cool, I assume.’ I assumed Marissa Machado—who has been our groomer for over 10 or 15 years now—wouldn’t discover, however she checked out me and simply half of my eyebrow is lacking. She noticed me and was like, ‘What occurred? Who did this?!’” he says, laughing. “I’ve had lots of these moments.”
Joe’s favourite issues
With Joe’s eyebrows wanting unscathed and trauma-free throughout our interview, I ask him what’s on his hair/pores and skin/face/physique proper now, exterior of the merchandise he usually talks about (see: Color Wow Styling Cream, Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Depuffer, and Tom Ford for Men Shave Cream). A current favourite? His new deodorant.
“I’ve just lately gotten ‘more healthy’ deodorant,” he says. “I wasn’t hip to a few of the elements in your deodorant that I positively don’t wish to be placing on or in my physique.” I ask for the particular product identify, and he darts away to examine: “give me two minutes.” He returns to notice that he forgot he already packed his bag, and would ship the identify alongside later (cliffhanger, folks).
“Oh, and one factor that’s fairly enjoyable that my spouse [Sophie Turner] put me onto is these little blackhead masks, the place you may put it in your face and see your pores,” he says. “I’ll say, it was eye-opening that you’d have stuff in your face that you simply didn’t know was there, and you’re feeling like you may breathe higher or one thing afterward. It’s lot of face masks and watching Alone on the History Channel, which is a unbelievable survivalist present. It’s actually good TV,” he tells me.
Joe and getting older
As we discuss, I discover myself curious: For a kid-star-turned-adult-star who fortunately helps beauty remedies with a “you do you” angle, how does Joe truly really feel about getting older? Perhaps unsurprisingly, he says, “I like getting older. I like the concept that with yearly, I get a bit wiser, and with the errors I make and have made, be taught from them. As a mother or father now particularly, the thrill of watching folks round me develop up, watching my associates develop up, watching myself develop up.”
That mentioned, he’s additionally high quality with attempting remedies and merchandise that’ll assist him proceed to appear and feel good, too. “Each morning, I’ve a bit shake that I’m obsessive about,” he says. “It’s known as Athletic Greens, and my good friend received me onto it. This isn’t even an organization I work with—I simply love their stuff and the way it’s type of caring for your physique with all of the nutritional vitamins and minerals that you simply don’t take into consideration.”
I inform him my boyfriend is additionally obsessive about Athletic Greens, and that our kitchen is at all times plagued by AG smoothie cups. He laughs and confesses he additionally introduced his cup with him at the moment.
“I identical to issues that make you’re feeling good and wholesome and hopefully make you reside longer,” he says. “That’s the purpose. I don’t wanna reside eternally, however I like the concept that I can reside one other 10 or 20 years if I can add that to my life. And if I can look good alongside the way in which? Nice.”
I ask him if—in 50 years, when expertise permits everybody to have new face—there’s one a part of him that he’d by no means wish to change; one thing that feels uniquely Joe Jonas. “I believe it goes again to the horror story of my eyebrows,” he says. “We’ll cross that bridge once we come to it, however in all probability my eyebrows. Or my nostril. I’ve nothing in opposition to if you happen to change yours, however I’m good with conserving mine.”
I inform him his followers will in all probability be joyful to listen to this, and remind him to ship me the identify of his deodorant. That is journalism, in spite of everything, and I’m nothing if not skilled.
