Read on to see 5 ways Sailor Brinkley Cook stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She's All About Body Positivity

Cook is all about body positivity, and she wants others to do the same. She talked about this in the caption of this Instagram post. "Lets all remember just how wonderful, magical, powerful, sensual, flexible, durable, fantastical and beautiful our bodies are," Cook wrote. "Just as they are. Right now. With or without a special diet. With or without a gnarly workout routine."


She Stays Hydrated

Cook has amazing skin, and she makes sure to take care of it. She tells Glamour that staying hydrated is one of her biggest secrets. "I think drinking a lot of water is literally the most important beauty rule people forget about. You can put on the different masks, the different serums, everything—but when I drink a lot of water, like three liters a day, I swear after a week I see a difference in my skin."


She Exfoliates


One of Cook's skincare secrets is exfoliating. She shared her favorite tool in her Glamour interview. "I use the Barbara Sturm exfoliator. It's a loose powder that you put on wet skin then wash off. It's calming, but it also gets in there and gets the grime and dirt out. I use it every night."


She Swims

According to this Instagram post, Cook loves to swim to stay in shape. According to The Cleveland Clinic, swimming has a lot of benefits. "Want to keep your ticker at peak function? Cardio activity is one of the keys to a healthy heart, and swimming's cardiovascular benefits are clear. It's been shown to: Improve cholesterol levels. Reduce blood pressure. Lower your risk of heart disease."


She Walks

Cook tells Glamour that she likes to walk to stay in shape and to clear her mind."I usually just take a walk. I think that's a really underrated thing people don't do enough when they're feeling stressed out. Especially in the city, I'll put my phone in my pocket, put my headphones in, and I'll just play my favorite music and take a walk around the city. You just see all these different people of all different walks of life, and the art on the streets, and little fluffy dogs. All these little things remind you that, Okay, we're all in this together, we're going through it, you've got to make the best of it. That really helps me a lot when I'm feeling chaotic.
