LeAnn Rimes’ beauty and fitness secrets include taking 40 vitamin pills a day, working out at home and weekly spray tanning sessions. LeAnn, who reportedly follows an organic diet, said her workouts include yoga, Pilates and boxing.
“At home, we have a gym upstairs,” Rimes told Into the Gloss. “I switch it up between circuit training, Pilates, boxing and yoga every once in a while. I also jump rope a lot when I’m on the road.”
In addition to regular exercise, LeAnn said her bikini fitness secrets include lots of supplements, Celebrity Health & Fitness reported. “I’m a big vitamin person,” said Rimes. “I take like 20 pills in the morning and 20 at night — fish oil, prenatal vitamins, probiotics, biotin. I have an herbalist I work with who has put me on a bunch of different things.”
Rimes also spray-tans at home once or twice a week because she’s naturally very pale. “I’m a white girl — seriously, so white — so I spray tan,” said LeAnn. “My assistant, Kiki, and I love to spray tan so much, so we finally bought a machine and started to spray each other. The machine is like $500, so we save so much money. We do it once or twice a week.”
LeAnn has psoriasis, which requires her to take drugs and get shots. “I’ve had really bad psoriasis since I was two,” said Rimes. “It was a nightmare. I started taking a biologic drug. I take a shot every two weeks, and I hate needles, but that’s what I had to do to get my skin clear.”
Rimes raised eyebrows in 2010 after showing off her dramatic weight loss. LeAnn denied rumors she lost weight because she was suffering from anorexia or bulimia. Rimes insisted her weight loss “happened naturally” and was due to stress.
In 2012, Brandi Glanville accused Rimes of having anorexia and a dangerous laxative addiction. “LeAnn has a severe eating disorder,” Glanville told Us. “She has [a laxative] in every purse. [My son] Mason found one on the floor and thought it was a Skittle!”
Brandi is the ex-wife of LeAnn’s husband, actor Eddie Cibrian. In 2009, Cibrian cheated on Brandi with LeAnn and the two married in 2011. At the time, Rimes was also married, to chef Dean Sheremet. Brandi and Eddie were married for eight years and share custody of their two sons.
Rimes has bad days when she feels unattractive, but exercise and a healthy diet help her feel her best. “There are moments where I feel insecure, when I feel completely bloated and disgusting,” LeAnn said. “Working out, taking care of myself, and knowing I’m doing the best things for myself makes me feel beautiful, even on the days when I feel like crap.”
