How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Candice Swanpoel stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Varies Her Diet

In an interview with, Swanpoel talked about some of her wellness secrets, including how she approaches eating. "I don't stick to a specific diet," she says. "I eat whatever my body needs or craves. I have to eat a lot to maintain my weight, so I'm lucky I can eat anything, but I do focus on foods that make me feel good and give me more energy."


She Varies Her Workouts

Swanpoel doesn't just vary her diet, but also her workout. "My routine is constantly changing but depending on what is going on in my life, I am either allowing my body to rest or working out for a specific goal," she told "My goals when working out are to build on my foundation. I am naturally extremely thin, so I need to add weights to keep my curves, which is how I feel my best and most beautiful. I don't overdo it, as I like to keep a natural feminine figure. Thirty minutes a day, four times a week does the trick for me–if I can be consistent. Which is not always the case."


She Takes Care Of Her Skin

Swanpoel has amazing skin, and she makes sure to take care of it. She shared her routine with "Mornings, I cleanse, tone, and moisturize, and use a strong SPF. Nighttime, I double-cleanse, tone, and use a retinol or U Beauty's amazing Resurfacing Compound and moisturize with a thicker product. I love your hydrating moisturizer, The SUPER Hydrator, and I never forget my eye cream. If I have time, I use product on my body. I use The SCULPT Arm Compound on my entire body." 


She Uses A Cleanser


One skincare product Swanpoel likes to use is a cleanser. She tells ELLE that since she has oily skin, she has to cleanse on a regular basis. "I like a foaming cleanser because I have quite oily skin. I really like to feel like I'm getting all the dirt off. I have one that I get from Wholefoods that's green tea-based, it's super natural."


She Makes Time For Herself

Swanpoel has a busy life between her career and her family. However, she tells that she makes sure to make time for herself. "I disappear from society. Haha. Avoid eating out and drinking alcohol and make sure I'm going to sleep early and exercising. Rest is extremely important for me to have the energy to do the things that help me reset."
