Jones opened up about her life and career in an interview with Shape. She says that she isn't embarrassed anymore. "I feel comfortable in my skin," she says. "Public opinion doesn't matter to me. Yesterday I went to a birthday party with my son, and I wore humongous red sweatpants because I had my period. My sister said, 'Are you actually wearing those out?' I thought about it for a moment, but I still wore them. Who cares? They're my period pants!"


She Improves Her Posture

Jones talked about her favorite workouts to Shape. She says that she does things that improve her posture. "After I had my son, Xander, I wanted to feel strong because my body had changed so much. As he got bigger and I was hauling around a 20- or 30-pound toddler, my lower back gave out and I saw my shoulders starting to curl and hunch. I wanted to do something for my posture and core strength. Two or three years ago I started doing barre classes, and after that I took regular private Pilates lessons. Then a friend told me about Lagree Pilates. I've been doing it two to four times a week for the past year now, and I've gained weight because I've put on muscle. I've gone up a size in clothes, but I feel like I look better naked."

For Jones, working out has to be enjoyable. She tells Shape that she sticks with Lagree Pilates because she enjoys it. "Lagree is quite difficult, but I've found that it's the only thing that really makes me feel stronger, and I'm loving it. The music is good and there's always a different routine, so it doesn't get boring."


She Goes To Classes

Jones likes to go to Lagree Pilates classes. She tells Shape that going to classes helps her stay motivated. "There are 10 of us in the class, and I like having women on both sides of me to push me," Jones explained. "When I did the private Pilates lessons a couple of years ago, I just saw myself getting lazy with it because there wasn't that drive for competition. For me, that's what's motivating. If there's someone strong next to me, I definitely want to up my game. I find myself looking forward to it more than I've ever looked forward to a workout."


She Does At-Home Skincare

Jones has amazing skin, and she shared some of her tips to Into The Gloss. She says that she likes to do at-home skincare routines. "I like to take 20 minutes to lay in the bath, with a mask in my hair and a mask on my face," Jones says. "I think I started really caring about my skin when I was modeling, just because we have to wear so much makeup. I don't get facials professionally done, either—I like to do them at home. I find something very calming and therapeutic about treatments at home."
