SECRETS TO HER NATURAL GLOW

Despite her busy schedule, Washington still maintains her youthful glow which she revealed to be because of water.

She integrates water into her lifestyle, not just through the intake, but externally as well. The actress did water aerobics as a form of exercise during pregnancy and used products concentrated on hydration.

Apart from getting enough water, Washington also takes care of her emotional and mental health, which she believes is tied with physical appearance.

A SUCCESSFUL MOM

Despite her busy career schedule, Washington still makes time for her family including her two children, Isabelle and Caleb whom she shares with her husband, Nnamdi Asomugha.

Although her work brings her into the spotlight, the mom-of-two rarely brings her children with her. In fact, Washington rarely ever posts photos of her toddlers online.
