Former Pussycat Doll and Hawaiian native Nicole Scherzinger isn’t just famous for those vocal pipes—she’s got a killer body and everyone knows it!
The 38-year-old singer recently dished her beauty and fitness secrets to Express.co.uk, and we’re here to share!
When asked about her diet, she expressed a firm belief in moderation for all things, even if it’s truffles or pasta!
“I don’t follow a strict diet,” Scherzinger said. “I honestly believe in having everything in moderation and don’t deprive yourself.”
Not following a strict diet is closely accompanied by smaller portions, however. Scherzinger suggests eating less but more often, especially if you’re looking to lose weight.
“I would also say to avoid eating late at night, so your body has time to digest before you go to bed,” she said. “I always try to eat fresh and avoid preservatives – eat things that you know are clean. I avoid filling my house with bad snacks as I know I’d always go for those if I’m hungry.”
Scherzinger admits that peer pressure and other peoples’ expectations of you can be daunting, and advises all women to know themselves and accept themselves first.
“There’s always going to be pressure to look a certain way,” she said, “but it’s up to the individual to tune out the negative voices. As long as you feel great, that’s all the matters.”
As someone who has struggled with self-acceptance her whole life, Scherzinger had to embrace the fact that no one is perfect.
“I had to stop dissecting myself and picking myself apart in the mirror,” she told Cosmopolitan. “Eventually you’re going to have to embrace and love yourself for who you are.”
The singer struggled with bulimia during the early years as a singer for the Pussycat Dolls, which really started in 2004. Since then, however, she’s turned her life around and advocates a healthy lifestyle for everyone.
Scherzinger is big into spin classes, and feels it’s a great alternative to other cardio exercises.
“I feel there is a collaborative effort with those taking part in the [spinning] class. I always try work out in the morning so I don’t procrastinate and it gets done,” she said.

But hold up, can we talk about Scherzinger’s perfect skin for a quick second? I mean, talk about a natural glow!
“My top skin tips for anti-aging are wearing SPF every day, sleep and lots of moisturizer and water.”
Wise words, and if our skin can look anything like hers, we’ll be taking her advice!
“The products I swear by are Proactiv [advanced acne treatment] and Bliss eye patches [Anti Wrinkle Under Eye Gel Patches]; whenever you’re tired or jetlagged they make you look more awake and help to stop puffiness and tiredness. I love Jurlique powder [Rose Silk Finishing Powder] to set my makeup,” she said.
