In 2021, Biles told People that the pandemic allowed her to reassess her life. Specifically, she started to make her wellness a priority. “This past year has really been about taking a pause and trying to focus on all the good things in life. I’ve slowed down a bit and been able to take more time for overall wellness.” To cope during these tough times, “Regular physical activity and exercise can help reduce anxiety and improve mood. Find an activity that includes movement, such as dance or exercise apps. Get outside, such as a nature trail or your own backyard,” says the Mayo Clinic. “Choose a well-balanced diet. Avoid loading up on junk food and refined sugar. Limit caffeine as it can aggravate stress, anxiety and sleep problems.”
Biles has incredible skin and she is making sure to take care of it. One of the things she likes to do is use a jade roller on her face. She tells People, “I recently started using this jade roller. It’s really relaxing – like a mini facial that I can do at home.”
When it comes to her hair, Biles stays away from store bought products. She tells People that she uses homemade local products on her hair. “I have someone who does my hair in Houston. She makes her own products which is really fun! I always use those.”
Biles is not afraid to call people out on Twitter, specifically body-shamers. In 2016, she called out people who were making comments about her body. “You all can judge my body all you want, but at the end of the day it’s MY body,” she wrote. “I love it and I’m comfortable in my skin.”
One of the reasons Biles doesn’t pay attention to haters? She’s comfortable with herself. She tells POPSugar, “I also don’t look at comments or anything just because I’m grateful and I love everything about myself, and I’m proud of who I am inside and out. That’s definitely helped me not think about it.”
