She's Vegan

Pompeo and her family have adapted a vegan diet. She talked about this in an interview with People. "I don't think it's tricky at all — it's actually easier because meat you have to cook it before it goes bad. Grains and lentils and rice and beans, everything's in the pantry already. You just have to get vegetables, but vegetables stay good for a week — and I think we all feel better."


She Has Skin Treatments Done

Pompeo has amazing skin, and she makes sure to take care of it. She shared her secrets in an interview with WhoWhatWear. She says that she does a lot of professional procedures to keep her skin healthy. "When I was younger, I needed a lot of pore-cleaning and extraction facials. Now I do more to improve and keep my skin texture even: microcurrent and micro-needling."


She's All About Inner Beauty


Pompeo is all about inner beauty. She revealed in her WhoWhatWear interview that this was the best advice she's received, and that she's passing it on to her own children. "I truly do believe and tell my children that real beauty starts on the inside with an attitude of love and kindness.


She Plays Tennis


Pompeo shared some of her favorite workouts in her WhoWhatWear interview. One thing she likes to do is play tennis. Better Health states that tennis has a lot of benefits. "Tennis is a good sport for maintaining health, fitness, strength and agility. It also has social and psychological benefits. Playing tennis has many health benefits including: increasing aerobic capacities, lowering resting heart rate and blood pressure."


She Practices Yoga


Pompeo tells WhoWhatWear that she likes to do yoga as a way to unwind. Harvard Health states, "Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years gained less weight during middle adulthood. People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating."
