She Eats for Beauty

"I eat a lot of vegetables, and I eat blueberries, and I drink green tea," she told Health. "I add a spoon of powdered collagen to chamomile tea at night—I don't know what that does but I do it! And I try to drink lots of water." She considers all that hydration part of her "beauty routine." Speaking of which, she told Health: "I take my makeup off every night with a sponge—like a little soft, nonabrasive sea sponge that I change once a week—and then I use a mild soap."
She Works Out on This Schedule
"Typically, if we have a good filming schedule where she has availability, we'll work out between 5-7 days, which is a lot. But she takes a lot of time off when she's busy," Vergara's trainer Jennifer Yates told Marie Claire. "It's fine to give yourself a break—your body comes back stronger. You have to let your body rest, even if you're working out a few days during the week. That's why we rotate with Sofia. We have days in between when she rests. If you exhaust the muscles, you're more prone to getting injured."
You Can Do a Bodyweight Version of Her Workout
"All you need is your own body weight," Yates told Marie Claire. "Crunches are great. During red carpet season we do a lot of upper body and abs—planks are also great. Even if you have a weighted object; you can hold it in one hand, crunch to one side, and pull back up to hit your oblique muscles. You can also get a cheap resistance band for five dollars or less, and wrap it around a secure pole or door knob. If you stand facing that object and do a torso twist, you'll hit your obliques as well. The key is making sure you have the correct form. Holding planks are one of the best full body exercises you can do."
She Uses Sunscreen
"In my 20s, I started to use sunblock on my face," she told People in 2016. "I wish I had put it on my chest too." Her brand of choice at that time? La-Roche Posay, which she told Health "is great for sensitive skin. It's my go-to." She's also into hates to protect herself. "I have a little house in the Bahamas and I have a fucking crazy collection of hats so everyone can have one," she said. "There must be 25 hats in the bucket, and I always go for the same one: a visor. An old lady visor."
She Empowers Other Women to Look and Do Their Best
Vergara launched a successful underwear brand. "EBY means empowered by you," Vergara told SELF in an interview. "The whole thing that we wanted to do was women empowering women. Women buy the underwear and a percentage of that money is given to these women through microfinance [loans]." I've had the luxury of being able to grow my ideas into successful business ventures over the past 10 years," Vergara writes in a statement. "I want to provide women with the tools to start their own business as an exit out of poverty."
