This is Her Beauty Routine

"I'll be honest. I'm a very simple girl. I do wash my face twice a day. I make sure I put on moisturizing sunscreen every day. I like getting microderms from time to time. It's good to exfoliate your skin. I'm kind of obsessed with seeing blackheads clear out—I'm weird that way. I'd like to believe that a lot of people are like that. More than anything, I wash my face twice a day and moisturize," she told W Magazine.


She Embraced Her Flaws to Feel Confident


"No, I haven't always been confident. I've definitely had to have self talks because before I was grown up, I was one of those girls where my body developed a bit behind. I was really tall, very muscular. I used to walk with my back hunched over a bit because I was so insecure about being tall. My confidence, as far as me accepting myself physically, kind of happened later for me. Once I got older, I realized it's actually cool to embrace all of these things that I thought were flaws," she told W.


She Eats a Balanced Breakfast


Ciara has said she starts the fay off with fiber-packed oatmeal, fruit and maybe a bit of egg. "Steel-cut oats aren't necessarily healthier than rolled or quick oats, however, they may help you stay fuller longer. This is because steel-cut oats are made from whole oat groats, which is what you get from harvesting oats. Because they are minimally processed, they take longer to digest, which means they won't cause your blood sugar levels to spike," says Eat This, Not That! 


She Works Out Daily

"What I learned by having that daily commitment—and it doesn't mean that I go in the gym every day, because you need to let your body recover—but when I started to become more consistent, I realized how much better I felt, and how much easier my workouts became because it wasn't so aggressive. That's game-changing on the body and the mind. I feel like I can conquer the world on the days I work out, and it's very rewarding," she told People.


She Has Done Weight Watchers

"What's been really helpful with the program is that you get to enjoy yourself. It's not an extreme diet plan. It's not like you can't eat the fun foods that I believe bring us happiness or bring us joy…Being from Atlanta and being a southern girl, I've always loved good food, good flavors and good seasoned food," Ciara told People.
