Liukin makes skincare a priority, especially at night."Getting unready every evening is equally as important as getting ready each morning," she writes on her website. "I'm on the go all day, so when I get in, I want to give my body a moment to reset–we earned it! So at the end of the day, I like to focus on self care, my nighttime routine and turning off all notifications for the night. While I'm taking my time to do my full skincare routine, I look at it as an opportunity to unwind and spend some quality time with myself all while taking care of my skin."

Liukin shared some of her favorite ways to unwind to Well + Good. "Meditation is also crucial to my mental health. For me, it just involves stepping away from my phone, closing my eyes, and focusing on breathing. The combo of journaling and meditation is my saving grace for clearing my mind and focusing on my day. I sometimes have so much going on and it can feel overwhelming, but doing both of these things first-thing [in the morning] really calms my mind and allows me to focus on what I have to do."


She Does A Variety Of Workouts

Liukin shared some of her favorite workouts to Well + Good. She says that she does a variety of things to stay in shape. "I generally try to work out first thing, before anything else can pop up and get in the way, but I never do any gymnastics anymore. I love mixing it up with SoulCycle, Bar Method, and Barry's Bootcamp throughout the week. I've been really into boxing with my trainer lately, or if I'm running low on time I'll just do a quick run along the West Side Highway."


She Goes To Classes

Liukin shared to Well + Good that she likes to do fitness classes and work with a personal trainer. "When I was competing, my body was so used to doing the same thing seven hours a day, six days a week, and when I stopped I didn't know what to do," she explained. "I always had someone telling me. So working with a trainer and trying out all of these different studio classes has been really fun because I get to try out different exercises, but someone is telling me what to do and when to go."


She Loves Green Juice

Liukin shared her diet to She says that she likes to do green juice cleanses. "I really love green juices. I don't necessarily do green juice cleanses for a week long, but if I'm not feeling that great, I'll just do a one or two day juice cleanse, and it will just pick me right back up." Liukin also shared her favorite recipe. "Kale, spinach, celery, parsley, ginger. If I feel like I want it a little sweeter, I put in apples."
