Roselyn Sánchez in Two-Piece Workout Gear Says "Qué Rico!"

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 

Roselyn Sánchez has got that post-workout glow! The Devious Maids star shows off her amazing body – including her washboard abs – in a new social media post, taken from an oceanside balcony. "Qué Rico! So yummy! Love love love," she captioned the Instagram Stories image. How does the actress, 50, manage to look half her age? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


No Alcohol and Little Sodium


One of the star's secrets to looking forever young? She avoids alcohol. "I've never had alcohol or smoked," she confessed to Hola!. Jennifer Lopez also suggested to her that she keep salt intake to a minimum. "If you want your face to look chiseled, no sodium two days before," she added. "I learned that from our friend JLo. She said, 'I approach everything like a sport, so when I have a concert, I train for that – and then I can do whatever I want until my next one."


Making a "Conscious Decision" to Exercise

"I think [staying fit] is a conscious decision," Roselyn told Hola!. "Once you have kids, the body changes." This is why she makes sure to push herself, even when she doesn't feel like exercising. "People have a perception of you, of how you need to look, and it's a lot of pressure. I'd rather be home and do nothing, but I can't. And now it's not even about the physique. I became a mother late in life—I had Sebella at 38 and Dylan at 44—and I want to be as healthy as possible for as long as possible."



In a separate interview with Hola! Roselyn revealed that she learned to box from her brothers. "We'd always watch boxing matches on the weekend at home. It's my favorite sport. Before marrying Eric, I loved going to see live boxing matches."



She also loves ballet. "But on the other hand, I love ballet. I've been practicing it since I was very young. I loved boxing with my brothers, climbing trees and playing in the mud. But my feminine side was satisfied by being a lady with my hair done up in a ribbon and wearing a white tutu," she told the publication. 


Taking Action

There are no shortcuts to looking great at 50, says Roselyn. "I exercise a lot. I've been dancing ballet since I was four, and have been practicing it constantly throughout the years. It's very important for me to keep moving and stay active. I've never been a drinker or a smoker. I don't know for sure if this is the reason why I look younger. Doctors claim that leading a healthy life consisting of good habits like eating healthy and getting enough rest is fundamental to good health. I've never gone to bed with my makeup on, but I'm not a big fan of beauty products and I've never had plastic surgery. I practice a bit of discipline and I'm good to myself," she told Hola!.
