Rae revealed some of her wellness secrets to Women's Health. She says that she loves to walk and run. "My neighborhood has a bunch of hills, so it's walking up hills. Then I alternate between walking and jogging. I hate jogging—you're going in circles, but I recognize that it helps."


She Has A Supportive Team

Rae tells Allure that she makes sure to keep her skin hydrated and moisturized. "I moisturize a lot, all over because, again, I'm a very dry person in general and I just find that as long as I'm moisturizing my skin, it helps the glow," she says. Rae also revealed her go-to moisturizing product. "I use Dr. Sturm Products, like the hyaluronic serum. That has worked wonders."
