Unless you’ve been living under a rock, we know you’ve seen the oh so stunning Tina Knowles Lawson’s Ebony magazine spread. A diva in her own right, Miss Tina set the internet ablaze with her red hot feature; and we’re inspired. The gorgeous mother/grandmother taught us that sexy has no age and we took a few notes. Check out our list of 7 simple ways to preserve your sexy.
The German originated workout is a major part of Miss Tina’s routine as well as many other svelte women around the country. Pilates focuses on aligning the mind and body, sculpting your frame along with centering your mind.
Start your mornings and end your nights with a prayer. Getting in tune with your spirit will improve the way you think and approach life’s problems.
Educate yourself. Join a book club or start one with your friends. Enrich your mind with literature from different genres. There’s nothing sexier than a black woman with a strong mind.
Improve Your Diet
We all love a good burger and fries but in moderation. Try new recipes like teriyaki shrimp skewers with a side of fresh avocado and baked sweet potatoes. Commit to living a healthier lifestyle through the foods you eat, rev up your metabolism by snacking on fresh fruit, nuts, and whole grains. You’ll notice a serious improvement in your energy levels and physical appearance.
Drink More Water
This is probably the simplest thing you can do. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking a large amount of water daily. It’s recommended that you drink between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh. Your hair and skin will thank you for it. Start a challenge with your best girls to stay motivated.
Don’t forget that your life is amazing and it’s worth living. Take time to travel, laugh, and spend time with the ones you love. Shake up your mornings with a quick dance session to your favorite Beyonce or Earth, Wind & Fire record. Remain positive. Most of all, love yourself because sexy comes from within.
