Jenna Dewan Shares Swimsuit Photo "Soaking Up the Sun"

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Jenna Dewan is a lot of things. She's an actress, known for her roles in Step Up, The Rookie, and Supergirl. She's a host and TV personality, appearing on Flirty Dancing, World of Dance, and Come Dance With Me. And she's an author, releasing her book Gracefully You in 2019. Dewan shared a new set of pool photos on Instagram this week. In them, she wore a peach swimsuit, and captioned the post, "Soaking up the sun." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Jenna Dewan stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Follows The 80/20 Rule


In an interview with Us Weekly, Dewan talked about her diet. She says that she follows the 80/20 rule. "I do 80 percent as healthy as possible — vegetarian and vegan, as healthy as I can," she says. "And then 20 percent I'm eating Mexican food if I want it. You know, I've gotta be able to indulge and have a glass of wine and feel good in that way, so that helps me not be so strict and so focused in one way."


She Wants To Remove The Stigma


Dewan wants to remove stigmas we have in society. She tells People that this is why she is open about her melasma. "Removing stigma in life in general is important. We all have issues that we're dealing with that may affect our self-confidence. I find it really healing when somebody's very honest or talks about what they're going through."


She Does What She Enjoys

Dewan is all about doing what she enjoys doing. She talked about this to People. "I think finding what makes you feel good and increasing that in your life, whether that's working out, going out and playing, seeing friends — whatever it is that brings you true happiness and joy — that's the hack of life. Really tap into that."


She Uses Retinol


Dewan makes sure to take care of her skin. She shared some of her favorite products with Glamour. Dewan says that she likes to use products that contain retinol. "There's Exuviance retinol, but I also sometimes use straight Retin-A, like the old-school kind, just to get down to it. Then I use the NeoStrata thicker cream or another moisturizer afterward, and it helps if there's any dryness.


She Uses Sunscreen

Dewan makes sure to protect her skin from the sun. She shared her favorite sunscreen brand in her Glamour interview. "​​I love Supergoop. They have a glow sunscreen that I use a lot—twice a day. Because that's the thing with melasma: You have to keep sunscreen on all the time. So it's about finding one that also gives you a glow."
