She Keeps Her Skin Moisturized

Smalls shared some of her beauty secrets in an interview with Harper's Bazaar. She says that she makes sure to keep her skin moisturized. "I love Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair, the serum. I always mix that in with my moisturizer. Even though the bottle says 'Night,' I still use it throughout the day so I get the benefits all the time."


She Works Out While Traveling

Smalls does a lot of traveling. However, she always makes sure to still work out when she's on the road. She shared her secrets for doing so in her Harper's Bazaar interview. "I always make sure whatever hotel I'm staying in has a gym. And then I work out for 30 minutes or an hour with a little bit of cardio and core work, and I hit my glutes and legs."


She Eats A Healthy Breakfast


Smalls shared some of her diet and fitness secrets in an interview with WSJ Magazine. She says that she makes sure to eat a healthy breakfast each day.  "I'll do oatmeal," she said. "Other times I'll do scrambled eggs, turkey bacon and a piece of toast, slice of avocado. Other days it's fruit. Before I eat, I tend to drink water." 


She Does A Variety Of Workouts

Smalls tells WSJ Magazine that she does a variety of different exercises. "I've been doing 45 minutes [a day]—it's mostly resistance training with my own body. I'll do planks, I'll do different types of sit-ups, anything that's for my core because I have scoliosis. I do a lot of glute work: kickbacks, squats, fire hydrants. Cardio, I'll do maybe three times a week. When I was in Puerto Rico, I'd run outside because it gave me a nice view to be outdoors and running in between palm trees. I haven't done Muay Thai in over a year now, and I'm starting to miss it. I believe a girl should always be able to throw a good punch. It's a good self-defense."


She Enjoys Working Out

Smalls enjoys working out. She talked about this in an interview with Vogue. "I actually like working out. It's such a stress reliever when you're just focusing on yourself and not thinking about anything else except the music and your body. I always believe as a woman it's powerful to be able to pull your own body weight and be able to defend yourself."
