Chopra shared some of her diet and exercise tips with E! News. She admits that a big part of wellness is her genes. "I have great Indian genes! You know, I'm lazy. I want to take advantage of the fact that I have a great metabolism. When I start getting fat I'll work on it! I like food, and I don't like the gym, and as long as I look like this without doing anything, why bother?"


She's Comfortable

Chopra is all about being comfortable with herself. She says to E! News that this applies to what she chooses to wear and how she looks. "You need to feel comfortable. When you're comfortable, you feel confident. And when you're confident, the world is your oyster. Most important, you gotta feel what you wear."


She Removes Her Makeup

Chopra shared some of her skincare secrets with Vogue. She says that she always makes sure to take off her makeup. "I'm all about good skincare. If you have good skin – a good base – you can wear as much or as little make-up as you want. Your skin is the foundation to being able to express yourself through make-up. I think it's important to take off all your make-up at the end of the night so there's nothing, no mascara or remnants of the day. It's a therapeutic process for me. If I need to take off make-up (like mascara) that isn't easy to remove with just a face wash, I use a Shiseido make-up remover that's super gentle and removes it all."


She Keeps Her Skin Moisturized


Chopra makes sure to keep her skin moisturized, especially when she's traveling. "Every day, especially when I'm traveling in the airport and stuff and you're feeling tired, you have to make sure you look perked up," she said to E! News. "So hydrating the face, which is moisturizing. I always put a SK2 hydration mask on my face 20 minutes before I land."


She Swims


Chopra shared her favorite workout with Vogue. "I'm not someone who does very well in classes, but I swim," she says. "I do 15 to 20 laps. It boosts my mood and I feel super energetic and ready to go." The Mayo Clinic states that swimming has a lot of benefits. "Swimming is often touted as a great workout for all ages, offering benefits not only for the body, but also for the mind. As a form of exercise, swimming keeps your heart rate up and builds muscle strength. It also can be a great form of stress relief."


She Eats Healthy


Chopra makes sure to eat healthy. She shared her approach to eating in an interview with The Times of India. "My daily diet consists of regular food like chapati, vegetables, soups, salads, rice, dal and lots of fruits. Also juices and water are very high on my intake list.  In fact, water is a must for everyone, at least 10 glasses a day. I often overshoot that, but it does wonders to your skin."


She Isn't Focusing on Weight Loss


Chopra shared her approach to fitness in her Times of India interview. She says that she is focused on working out, rather than losing weight. "I am not a gym-freak," she admits. "But do work out regularly to keep the body well-toned. The idea is to keep fit and healthy and not shrink myself by two or three sizes."
