Courteney Cox Shares Swimsuit Photo Celebrating "10 Years"
Courteney Cox is celebrating a landmark anniversary with Johnny McDaid in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the former Friends star shares a rare bathing suit snap, honoring 10 years of being in a relationship with her Snow Patrol beau. "10 years," she captioned the Instagram Reel. How does the star maintain her youthful looks and body at 59? She recently spilled all of her diet and fitness secrets.
She Follows This Morning Self-Care Routine
Courteney swears by her self-care morning ritual. "After I wake up, I immediately brush my teeth and wash my face. After that, I scrub the shit out of my legs with an ESPA dry brush for circulation. I'm into this new thing where I use Aquaphor healing ointment mixed with Augustinus Bader 🐬body cream or oil. I love that combination, but I also like to switch things up. Sometimes I'll mix body oil with Aquaphor and put it all over my body. I love Tata Harper exfoliating cleanser and I mix that with True Botanicals cleansing balm," she told Marie Claire.
Courtney takes vitamins "every morning" and then juices. "I used to do celery juice in the morning for about two years. I was so obsessed with it that I even did it on vacation. I would find a way to get a juicer and do it. Now, I am doing the cucumber, pineapple, ginger, and lemon thing. I don't know if it's cleaning my gut, but it's a way to get something liquid down because it's hard for me to drink water. Finally, I have a cup of decaf coffee with oat milk and honey," she said.
She Plays Tennis
Courteney picks up a racquet regularly. "I play tennis twice a week. I used to box twice a week, but my left knee is hurt," she said. According to ACE Fitness it blends together cardio and aerobic exercise, as there is a lot of running around, and hand-eye coordination. "While tennis provides numerous health benefits—improved aerobic fitness and anaerobic endurance, muscular fitness (grip strength and endurance), flexibility, multiple skill parameters (balance, speed, agility and quickness), reactivity, and power—it also is psychologically demanding," they say.
She Does Pilates
"I also do pilates once a week," Courteney added. According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.
She Lifts Weights
Courteney also understands the importance of lifting weights. "As I get older, I realize it's more important for me to do weights. It's amazing how I used to be really muscley but not so much anymore," she said.
What is Courteney's "Self-Care Ritual"? "I like to cook. I have this steak recipe I received from my friend, Brandi Carlile, whom I met through Instagram, which is kind of weird. I also make a great baked chicken and chicken parmesan. I don't just eat and grill; there's some serious marination going on," she said.
She Has a Bedtime Routine
Courteney has a bedtime routine. "Around 6:30 p.m. is when I light a candle and just chill out and watch something on TV. I love documentaries. That's a big thing for me. Of course, everyone likes true crime and that includes me. At night, before I go to bed, I wash my face and clean it off with a hot towel that I've placed various oils on. Then, I do the same body brushing I did in the morning with my dry brush," she said.
