McKinney opened up about her wellness routine to The Skinny Confidential. She says that she makes sure to workout on a regular basis, even when she's traveling. "I love to travel, whether it being for work or pleasure, but am always practicing a healthy/active lifestyle by choosing healthy food options on the go and finding time to get my work outs in," McKinney explains. "I'm a total yoga fanatic & am always searching for a studio to get my yoga flow on."


She Does Toning Workouts

McKinney revealed her go-to workouts to The Skinny Confidential. She says that she does a lot of different types of exercises. However, she focuses on exercises that tone her body. "For my weekly work out, I alternate between hot power yoga & Pilates," she says. "I love the way both these workouts give you long lean muscles, instead of bulking you up… A combination of the two are sure to do the trick! If I'm traveling and neither are an option, I like to take power walks on the beach and practice my postures there."


She Ignores The Negativity

McKinney has had to deal with a lot of negativity throughout her career. She tells The Skinny Confidential that she doesn't let it get to her. "A model tip would be to ignore the negativity & take any criticism and turn it into positive energy. Try your best but don't beat yourself up if something really isn't practical for your own self. As long as you're feeling confident and don't take anything too seriously, you'll have a fun time with it."


She Gets Enough Sleep

McKinney tells The Skinny Confidential that one of her biggest beauty and wellness tips is getting enough sleep. "I would have to say that sleep is my ultimate beauty trick. When I am getting lots of sleep & keeping hydrated I don't have to worry about covering up dark circles or faking a bright eyed, healthy complexion. Lots of sleep and tons of water is key for looking and feeling healthy, I'm also a lot more productive after a good night's rest!"


She Eats Healthy Food

McKinney makes sure to eat healthy. She revealed her approach to eating to HollywoodLife. "I say anyone can lose weight if you  eat what's in season, local, fresh, and not in bags, you're good," she says. "All that other stuff, it's a trend. Trust me. I've fallen into all the juice cleanses and the things, but you end up just crashing so I've learned to eat what works for my body."
