She Gets Her Rest

Blondeau recognizes the importance of a good night's sleep. Her beauty secrets include "a lot of sleep; washing off makeup at the end of the day is crucial with a lot of hydration," she told W Magazine. Adults need seven to nine hours of sleep each night, the National Institute on Aging said.

Blondeau does not stress about her weight. "I don't want to be skinny," she told The Telegraph. "Even if people are like, 'She's not that skinny, she can't do this show,' I'm just like, 'OK, fine, I'm not going to do that show. I'm not going to be skinny and not eat for them. If I want to eat, I can eat. I eat burgers. I'm not going to change this ever."


She Works Out Regularly

Blondeau works out, does yoga or exercises every day at a gym or at home. She has a full workout setup at home, including a treadmill and elliptical trainer, as seen in this Instagram post.

Blondeau had training in ballet when she was a child, as befits a daughter of France. And she's been known to do other kinds of dance as well, as in this Facebook video. Dance builds muscle and bone, reduces fat, increases aerobic capacity, lowers blood pressure and improves the ratio of good to bad cholesterol, according to the Harvard Medical School. Moreover, because it responds to music, dance stimulates the brain's reward centers, activates its sensory and motor circuits and can improve balance, gait and quality of life in people with Parkinson's disease and related movement disorders, the school said.


She Swims

Blondeau frequently posts pics of herself in a swimsuit, by the ocean or in a pool. Swimming two and a half hours per week can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses, improve the health of people with diabetes and heart disease and halve the risk of death compared with inactive people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Swimmers can also exercise longer than people on land without increased effort or joint or muscle pain, the CDC said.
