Joe Jones isn’t shy about sharing his skincare routine.
“We are all getting older and part of it is getting comfortable [in our skin]”Jonas tells people specifically.
While beauty and grooming routines and habits can sometimes feel like a taboo subject for men, Jonas wants to advance the conversation that men can and should take care of their skin too. That’s why the musician has partnered with Xeomin — a cosmetic injectable that smoothes fine lines using a unique pure formula that removes unnecessary proteins — for its new “Beauty on Your Terms” campaign.
“I don’t think it’s necessarily something we should shy away from,” he shares with PEOPLE. “We can be open and honest about it and be confident and not shy away from telling the truth.”
The “Happiness Begins” singer, who turns 33 on Aug. 15, has been very open about her anti-aging journey. He tells people that he has found a new level in using these injections to eliminate the wrinkles and folds that come with age.

“I personally care a lot about what I put in my body, and with an aesthetic treatment like this, I wanted to be mindful of what was in it,” he says. , after talking with the brand and her own health care provider, she felt good about diving in. Dealing with his frown lines and even a scar between his eyebrows with Xiomin gave him that little extra boost of confidence as he headed into the next year of his life. “I liked that it gave the area a little relief and I was like, ‘Okay, that’s great,’ without it being too much for my liking,” he says. Made it not over the top. It’s very light.”
For Jones, it’s not always easy to be open about something like skin care and hair care, but he surrounds himself with people who encourage him to be who he wants to be — and that means is embracing her love of painting her nails, wearing clothes she feels good in and finding confidence in it all.
“There were all these things at one point, like, ‘Oh, men can’t do that or it’s weird for boys to do that,’ and I think there’s a stigma that’s being erased, and I love that,” he says “Guys wear makeup more freely, and that’s great to see. It’s like, do what you want, you know? It’s a beautiful generation we’re living in.”
Finding his style has taken a bit of trial and error, and Jonas is quick to mention one award show outfit he still thinks about. The year was 2008, and the Jonas Brothers — his band with older brother, Kevin Jones, and younger brother, Nick Jonas — were wearing the noose on the carpet. In retrospect, Jones probably thinks he was dressed as a five instead of a nine.

“It was the odd Kids’ Choice Awards where I think we really wanted to be taken seriously,” he says with a laugh. “We were obviously still kids or around 18, and I remember we’d just come off a Ralph Lauren campaign or were playing polo. Or we were trying to get to the field to play polo. . Correct polo.”
It’s not his favorite look he’s ever worn, but he admits it “makes a great story.” The dress Stylist Avo Yermagyan gave her for the 2020 Grammys, however, is one of her favorites — so she saved it for after the big night. “There are some archive pieces that I’ve kept that are really special,” he tells PEOPLE. “The most recent time my brothers and I performed at the Grammys, I wore a Chanel suit and I got to keep it. It’s one of my favorites, also because of that memory.”
The suit in question is black and gold and covered in glitter. It was originally part of Chanel’s womenswear collection, reflecting the Disney alum’s openness to being herself.
“I think at some point you make that decision for yourself — the things you want to do, the things you want to wear, even the hair products you put in your hair,” she says of her style. Says about settling in and getting away from beauty routines and pressure to look a certain way. “You get to an age where you just go, ‘Well, I don’t feel that pressure anymore.’ I think if you had asked me 10 years ago, I would definitely have felt the pressure more.
With age has come a smarter grooming routine, and Jones admits he’s more meticulous about his routine than ever. While he still has some favorite “base” products that he’s used since childhood, he now focuses on how the products are made.
“I like to learn a little bit more and understand the ingredients in the products,” he tells PEOPLE. “Everything from deodorant to what’s going in my hair, even body lotion and sunscreen. [As I’ve aged] I think I’ve gotten a little smarter, maybe done more research. I love how men’s grooming has evolved so much.”
One of his go-to brands is Kiehl’s, which he uses in his daily routine, especially Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Collection and Facial Fuel Eye De-Puffer, especially when he’s tired. Beyond his favorite, however, the father of two children, who is married game of Thrones Star Sophie Turner says he likes “dating different products” based on recommendations.
Perhaps most importantly, when it comes to the DNCE singer’s grooming routine, he doesn’t let it slide when he travels — which he does a lot. Having toured the world as a singer and actor, Jones is no stranger to long flights, long hours and the stress of travel. He makes sure to lock up his skincare products before he leaves home, though, telling People that the only thing that changes with his routine between home and away is the literal size of the bottle.
“I have everything in travel size,” he says. “There’s a WOW hair product that I’m obsessed with, and it doesn’t come in a travel size. Usually the first stop when I land somewhere is to buy that product so I have it everywhere. “

At age 33, life for this Jonas brother sure looks different than it did 10 years ago. He’s putting more emphasis on self-care and settling into the next chapter of his life — including taking care of his hair and skin and realizing when he needs to slow down.
“I’m at the point where I’m picking and choosing when I feel like I don’t want to run myself down,” he says, noting the limits of sanity come to him with age. “My voice too – I can’t sing as many songs and do as many shows back to back. When I was younger, I didn’t have any problems. Sleepless nights, going to another city, performing this day, then going out. Celebrating K. That concert — you just go, go, go, go, and then you hit a wall of exhaustion.”

Now Jones makes time for himself and takes care of his body and mind. He likes to check in with himself in the morning and keep track of how much he’s taking in, because he knows that unnecessary stress can wreak havoc on his skin, too.
He may have two young children to take care of at home and a high-pressure job, but he still wants to prioritize his own care. He jokes that his goal this year is to “try to take a nap here and there” if he’s lucky. “I’m really starting to enjoy sleep.”
