The 33-year-old celebrity stays in shape by sticking to healthy foods. She mostly opts nutritious foods over processed ones. Now that she’s in her 30s, she understands the importance of consuming healthy foods most of the time. Besides, she feels the negative effects of junk foods right away, including upsetting her stomach and making her skin dry, which is something that she’s really conscious about.
In an interview, she talked about how she practices beauty inside and out. She said: “For me, it’s all about skin. When my skin looks beautiful, I feel beautiful. It starts with water. I drink a lot of water, and I add something to it called ChlorOxygen drops, which are like pure chlorophyll. You can get them at Whole Foods. I also love Éminence organic products.
