Nicole Scherzinger Shares New Swimsuit Video
Singer Nicole Scherzinger is 45 and in the best shape of her life in Mykonos, Greece. The 45-year-old star shared a fabulous video of herself frolicking in a crystal-clear swimming pool, wearing a blue bikini that emphasized her incredibly fit and toned physique. She even gave a slow motion hair flip in the water, much to the appreciation of her followers. "This view is absolutely gorgeous," a fan commented. How does she look so fit? Here are 5 ways Scherzinger maintains her health and beauty.
Spinning and HIIT
Scherzinger keeps active by taking long walks and trying out a variety of different workouts. "I like to switch it up and try new things, but most recently, I've just been pretty consistent with more HIIT workouts," she says. "I love doing everything from SoulCycle spinning and climbing to boxing and dance cardio. It's really good to always keep your body guessing and to always switch it up."
Lots of Protein
Scherzinger starts the day with plenty of protein-filled choices. "I love eggs and bread with a side of smoked salmon or some ham," she says. "If I have some frozen fruit laying around, I'll make an oat milk smoothie. Sometimes I'll put turmeric powder in it, which is delicious and anti-inflammatory." For a treat, she enjoys Cheetos and cake. "I love red velvet cake with cream cheese icing [or] carrot cake with cream cheese icing. I love muffins and cakes."
Scherzinger loves intense, sweaty workouts. "I love running and I love hot yoga," she says. "I just love the sweat, I love that it pushes you in hot temperatures and I love the stretching side of it. Take care of yourself and do what makes you feel good. Eat the right food, exercise, workout, listen to music that puts you in a positive mood. Find time for prayer and meditation and make time for you – take a bath, go for a massage, workout, stretch…"
Self-Care and Wellness
Scherzinger swears by massages and cold showers for self-care. "I like a deep tissue massage by a strong woman!" she says. "And for a quick fix, hot yoga, a cold shower, and an espresso shot. I like working out as much as possible, as it helps to set my mind straight for the day. The endorphins are great. I'm also very much about eating what you want, within moderation. You've got to enjoy yourself, right?"
Scherzinger is thrilled at how diverse the health and beauty industry has become. "Growing up was hard for me, I didn't really fit in especially with my skin color. But now it's a melting pot and everyone's mixed," she says. "I love how diverse it is. I didn't think that my skin tone used to be matched by brands, but now brands like Armani and Dolce & Gabbana and YSL who were typically more light in tone now have more orange tones and the right pigment to suit my skin tone and other exotic skin tones as well. I'm really excited about it."
