“I work out five days a week, I can’t imagine not doing it,” said Stefani, whose reportedly follows a vegan diet. “I’d like to have no rules and eat what I want, but I’ve learned over the years that I’m so disappointed when I can’t wear the clothes I want to wear.
“If I let myself down, appear on stage when I’m not looking my best, it’s not fun for me. I just beat myself up about it.
I always take Vitamin C and then I have a routine of these three shakes every morning:
- When I wake up, I squeeze a lemon, grapefruit and an orange to make a juice for my husband, my son and I.
- Then I mix a green powder [Original Superfood Greens from Whole Foods], wheatgrass [The Power of Grass, Whole Foods], chia seeds and water shake. It's disgusting but you just have to drink it all at once.
- For my third shake I blend banana, chia seed, cacao beans, Camu and Maca oils.
I am always so stuffed after drinking them all one after the other. Then I go to work and have a normal breakfast.
"(...)the best thing is liquid panthenol. It normally comes in foam form for burns, but in liquid form, it stimulates hair growth. It’s actually used in hospitals for chemotherapy patients who lose their hair and have sensitive scalps. My friend recommended that I use it, and my hair grows so much faster now. I put mine in a little spray pump so I can just apply to the roots after I wash my hair and rub it in. I like to leave it in to give my hair a slight lift, which I like, because I have a small head."
"Hair-wise, I love using coconut oil as a treatment and apple cider vinegar for shininess—you put on a little bit in the shower as a rinse, and then wash it out. It stinks a little, but then you use conditioner and the smell goes away."
“My mother was very keen on olive oil. Rubbing olive oil all over your hair and your skin–that was one of her big beauty tips and I still do that. Every now and then I just pour it on and leave it during the summer. Just give it a good soak. I mean, you can’t do it all the time, but every now and then I do.”
