Demi Lovato in Workout Gear Shares Mirror Selfie

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Demi Lovato is a successful actress and singer and bonafide icon. She's best known for her roles on the Disney Channel, like the Camp Rock film series, and the sitcom, Sonny With A Chance. Lovato's singles include, "Cool For The Summer", "Confident", and "Heart Attack." She shared a photo on her Instagram story of herself in an all black outfit. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Demi Lovato stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Doesn't Pressure Herself

Lovato tells Cosmopolitan that she doesn't like to compare herself to others or feel pressure to look a certain way. "I've been on the internet for so long. I just had to realize that the images of people on social media who have the perfect hair, the perfect makeup, the perfect whatever—I just have to look at them and be like, 'Okay, that's great for them.' I have to ask myself like what's great for me and that looks totally different. I'm not going to fit the mold of what other people expect from me. I've never been that way, and I took a lot of pressure off of myself after spending so much time in the public eye and getting those comments that were hateful, and I just decided to take the pressure off myself."


She Takes Care Of Her Skin

Lovato makes sure to take care of her skin. She shared her routine with Cosmopolitan. "Every day I have a diligent skincare routine where I use cleanser and a toner, then a day cream and an eye cream. Then at night, I use the same cleanser, same toner, a serum, a night cream and an eye cream. Twice a week, I also use a peel, a scrub, and a mask. I'm very, very strict [with it]."


She Takes Care Of Her Hair

Lovato also shared her haircare secrets with Cosmopolitan. "I use K18, and that's kept my hair really, really healthy. I also love Olaplex for the shampoo, but I am definitely trying to grow it out. I have a few extensions in the front right now, but I'm trying to get it as long as possible. I'll probably use hairpieces day-of, but I'm trying to keep it healthy [until then]. I'm keeping my skin in tip-top shape, and I'm doing the same with my hair. A part of me wants to go red again—like an orangier red—but I might wait until after the wedding."


She Doesn't Obsess Over Food

Lovato is open about her struggles with body image and an eating disorder. She revealed in this Instagram post that she is working on not obsessing over food and exercise. "I don't count calories anymore. I don't over exercise anymore. I don't restrict or purge. And I especially don't live life accordingly to diet culture.. and I've actually lost weight. This is a different experience, but I feel full. Not of food. But of divine wisdom and cosmic guidance."


She's All About Self-Care

Lovato shared her favorite self-care practices with Cosmopolitan. "Self-care is really important to me. And it's about taking care of myself. Doing whatever makes me feel the healthiest—whether it's going on a walk or working out or taking a bath, getting a massage, whatever it is that I feel like is going to be the most beneficial to my self-love routine—is what I focus on. I used to be affected by the comments on social media when I was younger, and the way that I've tuned it out is realizing that my joy doesn't come from comments on the internet. It actually comes from real deep and meaningful connections to the people that I love and care about. So I spend more time with them, and I care less about what people say on the internet. I just know that my happiness doesn't stem from outside validation; it really stems from within."
