Gilmore Girls Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham have secrets to their stunning looks. The actresses look incredible as they age, and it’s all thanks to their beauty and fitness regimens.

As many people already know, looking healthy comes from the inside out. What we put into our bodies has a major influence on what’s reflected in our complexion, skin, hair and nails. These two women have shiny hair, glowing skin and appear to be in the best shape of their lives. So, do you want to know how you can achieve the same look? Read on to find out.

Alexis Bledel and Lauren Graham’s Beauty and Fitness Secrets

As previously mentioned, becoming fit works best when approached holistically. This means that it’s not just about working out in the gym, but also about what you eat and how you practice self-care.

Lauren Graham also believes this. When she prepared for her 2011 cover shoot for Self magazine, she knew that getting the best results was going to take eating healthily in combination with her workout routine in the gym. Graham decided to use a meal delivery service so that she could practice portion control and consume fewer calories.

The 49-year-old also worked alongside her personal trainer, Michelle Lovitt, who helped her achieve a toned body in time for the cover shoot. Graham had just five weeks to get in shape! The meal delivery service, called Paleta, really helped her with discipline when it came to her eating and increased the overall efficiency of her fitness plan.

She claims that this eating service taught her more about healthy eating than any diet she’s ever tried. It makes sense when you think about this: Imagine having prepared meals designed for you with the nutritional portions necessary to help control your weight. Having those prepared meals as a reference for when you want to prepare your own is really useful. It teaches about portions and healthy options.

One thing the actress admits is that working on Broadway was challenging due to eating late night meals. When this happened, it was much more difficult for her body to digest food since it was time for bed.

Digestion is a huge part of diet and nutrition, and when your food is not being digested properly, you’re not getting the nutrients, vitamins and minerals required from food. Getting advice from a trusted friend also helped the actress remember the importance of getting a good night’s sleep, not eating late at night, and not eating too many acidic foods.

Alexis Bledel has beauty secrets you’ll want to know, too. Although she is still young, the actress has been getting facials since she was a teen and actually got much of her inspiration for healthy living from her co-star Graham. She shares in an interview with People that Graham always demonstrated healthy living.

She doesn’t sleep in makeup, gets strong skincare facials and uses (this is a biggie) sunscreen. She also ensures she moisturizes her skin – her particular moisturizer happens to be coconut oil, which she keeps in the shower (she tries to keep it natural when she can). Bledel shares that she tries to follow these beauty guidelines when she can, too.

It’s not confirmed, but it may not be a stretch to assume that both actresses partake in yoga, cardio or Pilates to stay in shape. So, is it any surprise both Gilmore Girls are so stunning? Didn’t think so.
