Tracee Ellis Ross is an award-winnig actress, model, singer, host, activist, beauty entrepreneur and producer. Oh, and did we mention her mom is Diana Ross? You could say she's done it all.
Today, the Black-ish star feels better than ever both in her body and professional life — but what’s her secret to a balanced life? How does she care for herself to stay in shape? Well, it’s all here.
Tracee Ellis Ross Loves an Early Morning Bath
Starting the day with an early morning lemon-scented bath is one of the biggest self-care rituals. And it’s a practice Tracee recommends.
“My biggest (self-care ritual) is a bath — I love them,” she said in an interview with British Vogue. “I take a bath at 5:30 in the morning, before work.”
And not just any bath. According to her, she loves taking them regularly and looking for all sorts of stuff to add into the ritual – from rose to lemon-scented baths.
Tracee Credits Her Glow to Face Masks
Another way Tracee Ellis Ross takes good care of her skin is by applying masks to her skin. She hydrates instead of slathering makeup creams on her face. According to an interview with Marie Claire, she’s always advocated for a self-care life with clean hair, no makeup, and hydrated skin.
She is a big fan of face moisture masks. The actress shared details of her beauty routine while stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, revealing that she pampered her skin to pass the time.
She does at least one mask a day. Sometimes it climbs up to four. And she has a vast collection of masks – lotions, oils, serums. The actress swears by La Grande Cream and French luxury brand Biologique Recherche.
Oral Health Is a Very Important Part of Tracee’s Beauty Routine
Another daily routine for Tracee Ellis Ross is tongue scraping. It is a common Ayurvedic practice since ancient times to promote body detoxification.
According to her interview with British Vogue, she uses her tongue scraper before taking any water or eating. But why does she do that?
Toxins or ama are deposited on the tongue, which the body excretes during the night. These layers of waste accumulate as a white film with millions of bacteria on the upper lingual strip.
And Don’t Forget to Workout
Finally, Tracee does a lot of workouts. No one should be surprised. Workouts are an essential self-care routine for everyone. Tracee follows the Tracy Anderson Method, and regularly posts workout videos on her social media.
“I love the workouts and have been doing it for years. It keeps me strong and long with a little jiggle.” she wrote on Instagram. “Thank you Tracy for your spirit and care.”
After working out, she finds something to eat. And not just any food. The key for her is avoiding sugar or coffee but opting protein shakes or apple sauce.
