When Reese Witherspoon posted a birthday Instagram of 17-year-old daughter, Ava, and 13-year-old son, Deacon, the world took notice. First, because the trio practically looked like triplets. Second, because it reminded everyone that somehow, Witherspoon was old enough to have teenage kids — even though she looks barely legal herself. Clearly, genetics play a hand in this, but it made people wonder: What's her secret? She's got a few, it seems. Here's what the Southern star does in a normal day to make 41 look like 21.
She Gets a Boost From a Very Specific Green Juice
While working with nutritionist Kim Snyder, Witherspoon became a huge fan of Snyder's Glowing Green Smoothie, which is loaded with spinach, romaine lettuce, celery, an apple, pear, banana, cilantro and parsley. It's basically like starting the day with a massive salad — minus the dressing — and it's loaded with fiber to keep your digestive system running smoothly.
She Spends Time Outside
The Big Little Lies star has been known to go for jogs outside near her Los Angeles home, and told Women's Health she loves to do hourlong Body By Simone workouts — a combination of dance, strength training, and stretching — a few times a week. "Physical strength is important," she said.
She Gets in Her Greens
As much as the actress loves sweet tea — it's served to anyone who stops by her store, Draper James — she'll balance out her Southern staples with a hearty vegetables or some protein. She's also a big fan of the kale salad and roasted chicken at Adele's in Nashville.
She Stays Zen With Regular Yoga Sessions
When you're running boutiques, a production company, and starring in HBO series and movies alike — while raising three kids — life can get a little hectic. Witherspoon stays focused with regular yoga sessions.
She's Big on Taking Care of Her Skin
Remember that graduation speech about always wearing sunscreen? Witherspoon's a believer, stating that if she were stranded on a deserted island, she'd bring that — and plenty of tequila. Jokes aside, the mom of three likes to keep her skin hydrated and protected. Molly R. Stern, Witherspoon's makeup artist, swears by ReVive and Natura Bisse's products. "They're rich with nutrients. They don't clog pores," she told Yahoo. "We get drier as we get older, so keeping the skin moist is important. Beautiful skin equals beautiful makeup."
She Gets in a Caffeine Boost
Like many of us, Witherspoon enjoys starting the day with a cup of coffee. It's one morning ritual she Instagrams on the regular.
She Saves Her Southern Faves for Special Occasions
If Witherspoon's throwing a party, she's got a few must-haves: fried chicken, corn salad, and her grandma Dorothea's biscuits are almost always on the menu, according to caterer Annie Campbell.
