She's An Ally

Thirlwall is all about being an ally to the LGBTQ community. She talked about the importance of this in an interview with Interview Magazine. "I think, as the years passed, it became more and more apparent to me that we had a huge LGBTQ+ fan base. That initiated the ally journey, and making sure that the fans felt like they had an artist that they can look up to who said, 'It's okay to be yourself.' If you're going to benefit from a fan base, you have to show them exactly that you support them and you stand with them, no matter what. So that's kind of what we've done."


She Always Wants To Do Better

While Thirlwall always wants to be an ally, she also wants to keep growing and doing better. "I would go to the gay bars, I was there, doing the thing, and I was obviously an ally of some sort, but I wasn't doing enough to advocate or really show what allyship truly meant," she explains to Interview Magazine. "That kind of dawned on me, the more I received letters from fans or DMs and social media messages, and that helped spur me on to do it properly: to be more of an ally-activist, work with the right charities, say more, and use our platform for the better. I feel like I can always be better, so I'm constantly trying to learn more about history."


She Takes Care Of Her Skin

Thirlwall makes sure to take care of her skin. She revealed some of her tips to Cosmopolitan. "I have combination skin – it's dry and oily – so I tend to follow a full skincare routine," she says. "I always start with a face wipe to remove makeup, followed by Simple's Moisturising Face Wash. Then I moisturise. I finish off with a face mask every couple of weeks to keep my skin hydrated."


She Works Out With Others

Thirlwall revealed some of her workout secrets to Cosmopolitan. She says that she likes to workout with others, since it pushes her to work harder. "I can't go [to the gym] by myself," Thirlwall says. "One because I get embarrassed because I don't know how anything works, but two because it's really hard to motivate yourself. I go with my brother or my boyfriend because you want to be better than them – it gets competitive."


She Motivates Herself

Thirlwall makes sure to stay motivated when she's at the gym. And she has a unique method. She tells Cosmopolitan that she thinks of celebrities she wants to look like. "I shout names at myself. I'll be like 'Jessica Alba', 'J-Lo'.. If you say the names, it motivates you because that's who you want to look like."
