Shakira Looks 20 Years Younger in New Photos

Here is everything you need to know about the habits that keep her looking forever young

Shakira is looking forever young in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the singer teases her new music while flaunting her ageless beauty, posing on the beach in a bathing suit. "This song Nassau is my take on Afrobeat 🌴 – it's on my new album Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran coming MARCH 22," she captioned the series of snaps. "What was Pique thinking? Bro messed up," one of her followers commented, referencing the cheating scandal that broke up her marriage. "This woman since she broke up with pique has rejuvenated, looks like she was 30 years old, queen of longevity," added another follower. How does the singer approach health and wellness? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Dance Cardio

Shakira has been working out five days a week with Anna Kaiser and her dance-cardio based method for several years. "We alternate between strength and cardio intervals. Some days we do just cardio and then strength and some days we start with strength and then do cardio, we like to mix it up," Kaiser told E! News. "I want to make sure that she is improving her endurance so that she can go into a two-hour show and also has the strength and stamina to make it through a five-month tour. It's about making sure she gets a little bit of everything."


Skating and Surfing

During the pandemic Shakira started skating and surfing. "These new hobbies that I never thought I'd be able to take on later in life, Skating and surfing—they are very therapeutic and liberate my mind," she told Cosmopolitan. "I'm not a great surfer. I just started a year ago, and it's a hard sport to make progress on. It's unbelievable how much pleasure I find in this. How all my troubles are washed away by the waves. There's something about the ocean and the salt and the wind that heals all the wounds. I found that's my own meditation, but it wouldn't be bad if I do the real kind. I think I need it."


Heart Monitor

Shakira wears a heart monitor. According to Kaister it "keeps her the most focused," and enables her to reach her fitness goals. "Maintaining a certain heart rate for a prolonged period of time can help you burn more calories and fat while also improving your cardiovascular health," confirmed Chris Travers, MS, to the Cleveland Clinic. Also, "it's also possible to overexert yourself, and a heart rate monitor can alert you to that danger, too."


Wholesome Diet


"Breakfast could be eggs or avocado with olive oil, tomato, sea salt, then a smoothie, berries, plant protein, sometimes greens or green powder," Kaiser dished "Then for lunch, we have fish and fresh vegetables or a salad with lots of colors. Afternoon is, I know it gets really busy, but we'll do soup. There are some really good artichoke soups, or it could be a leek and eggplant soup, carrot ginger, and sometimes with a side of cucumbers with lemon and salt. For dinner, she'll also do fish and veggies. It's usually cold for lunch and warm for dinner."


Creating Music Is Like "Therapy" for Her

Shakira uses a foam roller, which encourages flexibility, her trainer says. "When you're hypermobile, it's easy to think your muscles are flexible, but your flexibility is really around your joints and not your muscles," Kaiser explained. "Foam rolling is really important and making sure we are rolling out her fascia, her feet, her legs, and upper body to make sure she stays nice and healthy."
