Davidson makes sure to stay in shape and works out on a regular basis. She shared her fitness secrets with Michael Fairman TV.

Davidson shared her wellness secrets in an interview with Woman's World. She revealed that she regularly gets screened for cancer symptoms. "I'm trying to do something preventative to ensure I am here for my family as long as I can be. Every year, I get a mammogram and ultrasound. For ovaries, there are no signs that you have the cancer until it's too late."


She Goes To Therapy

Davidson shared her secrets for a successful marriage with Woman's World. She says that she and her husband go to therapy. "I really think it's important to let small stuff go. You cannot dwell on it. You have to forgive and let it go quickly. Obviously if it's something major, you need to talk about. We've been in and out of therapy many times over the years for different short-term things. I am a big believer in therapy for all reasons, for all people, forever."


She Has A Simple Hair & Skin Care Routine

Davidson shared her hair and skincare secrets with Woman's World. She says that she keeps things simple. "I have gone the route of the super expensive before, but I guess I've just gotten kind of bitter. I'm wondering if it really makes a huge difference. So now, I use Cetaphil as a daily facial cleanser. I use Eucerin as a body lotion. Just your basic things. I do use Aveda hair products but every once in a while, I throw in Pantene."


She Works With Charities

Davidson likes to give back and works with several charities. She talked about this in her Woman's World interview. "I also joined the advisory board of MAPDA – Mothers Against Prescription Drug Abuse. I have a really strong interest in that because of the big fentanyl problem and opioids. I'm happy to be doing whatever I can to help with that. I'm also still working with No Kid Hungry and Project Angel Food as well."
