And I got laser hair removal. I don't know who's not on laser hair removal, but you should be. You could get a la carte. Some places try and really price gouge you, but go on the Groupon, whatever. I'm not above it." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Gabby Windey stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Takes Care Of Acne

Windey shared her secrets for acne treatment in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. "I've tried endless products and have done endless research on how to help my skin and I feel like AviClear has been the answer to my skin prayers. … My acne got a little bit better after each treatment and it is continuing to improve as I get further out from the treatments."


She Doesn't Care What Others Think

Windey doesn't care what others think of her, and talked about this in an interview with Fashionista. "You can't take yourself too seriously. I feel like if you have a social media presence and are on television, people are obviously going to judge you, but it's not really personal. I think heckling is a form of love. I love it when my followers and fans DM me and roast me. It's my favorite thing to do. People come for my rugs all the time and I'm like, 'You guys, I can't get it together.' But it's like, who cares? I'm not an interior designer. I'd rather laugh at myself at the end of the day, and ultimately, I want to take risks."


She Advocates For More Representation


Windey is a member of the LGBTQ community and she wants The Bachelor franchise to be more inclusive. She talked about this with StyleCaster. "Watching whatever gay television is allotted us, a lot, especially when it comes to lesbians, I think people think lesbians are butch and not very feminine, so I didn't know it was an option for me. Every lesbian I knew looked different than me. I think if I had met someone like me then I would have been more comfortable with exploring it earlier. We could use more great representation with a strong woman on The Bachelor or the first queer Bachelorette. That'd be truly amazing to help open people's eyes."


She's Accepted Herself

In an interview with Glamour, Windey talked about how she came out and dating her girlfriend. "After I started dating Robby, I had all this internalized shame from the way I grew up. If there was ever discussion about being gay, it was shameful. It really came up in therapy and I was like, 'Is it because of my trauma? Do I just have mommy issues?' Maybe it is, but I'm the happiest I've ever been these last four months, so why would I question it? But I had to go through all of that to get to where I am now."


She Dances

Windey likes to dance to stay in shape. Benefits Of states that dance is a great way to improve balance. ​​"The many changes in body position and movement force your brain to adapt to the rolling movements. Practicing dance improves balance for most people. Some people whose sense of balance has been impaired (through chronic vertigo) have reported improved balance, although dance is a therapeutic exercise; you cannot cure vertigo through dance."
