Beauty Secrets Revealed: Kelly Rowland

Yes, she’s gorgeous…and works at it! Here, singer Kelly Rowland shares some of her best get-pretty tips:

THE BOD: “I use my core for everything. Absolutely everything,” she tells Us Weekly. “When I’m dancing on stage, when I’m walking around. I have to make sure that my core is strong, it’s tight.” It’s been reported that Kelly turns to exercise pro Jeanette Jenkins for advice on staying fit, who recommends two moves for excellent abdominals: the V-Up and Bicycle Curl. For a full set, Jenkins suggests doing 15 V-Ups and 20 Bicycles.

THE HAIR: When she’s rocking a weave, Kelly revealed this coif tidbit to Sophisticate’s Black Hair: “I like to treat my extensions as if they were my hair. I sleep on a silk pillow and I condition and cleanse them regularly. I also like to put a little bit of natural jojoba oil on the tips.” And don’t forget the scalp: “This may sound crazy but I like to massage my temples throughout the day to keep the circulation going!”
