The songwriter’s routine begins by making sure she’s doing well on the inside, she revealed in an Instagram video.

“My self-care routine, it always starts from the inside. I have to build myself up inside, spirituality. So, I start my day with prayer. The first fruits of my day got to God, go to prayer.”

The star said her diet forms part of her routine. “Get myself dressed and then I go to the gym. I drink a protein shake; I drink a lot of water. I try to drink at least half a gallon of water at the gym. Through the day I try to eat as healthy as possible: salads, fish. And of course, I get facials as well.

“I think water and prayer are the most important things. Prayer keeps you conscious of what your identity really is. Your identity is not really all the stuff you put on. Your identity is being able to see through it and being confident. And be confident and use it as a cherry on top, as a perk,” she added.
