Reba Reveals What She Won’t Do for Beauty
At 54 years old, with more than three decades of her music career to look back on, Reba McEntire stays current by keeping up with what the younger gals in the music business are up to. She tells PEOPLE.com that she likes a lot of what Taylor Swift and Kellie Pickler are doing, and predicts long-lasting careers for both. She also makes special mention of one of country's most popular newcomers, Randy Houser.
But when it comes to actually competing with other artists, it's all fun and games -- one game in particular. Reba tells OK! Magazine that one of her favorite people to hang out with is former duet and touring partner, Kelly Clarkson, with whom she shares a lot in common.
"She's high-energy, very enthusiastic, fun to be around, loves to play games," says Reba. "She and I are very competitive on the board games, especially backgammon, and we have a good time together."
Reba also reveals a few of her personal fitness and beauty secrets, including that she does a combination of Pilates, walking and weight-training for 30-60 minutes per day. There is one thing she won't do, however.
"I don't do Botox," she insists. "I just don't do it. Everybody else can, it's fine with me. I don't. It's botulism, so I didn't want to put that in my body. I think plastic surgery's great if that's what you want to do."
Instead, Reba says she uses a Japanese product called Noazir, along with a strict nightly cleansing routine.
"I take my makeup off every night, cleanse my face," she says. "I wash my face in the morning with their product, and moisturize very well. I always use a sunscreen on my face. And use product and makeup and things that let my face breathe as much as possible. I get facials as regularly as I can, and drink lots of water. And I do take fish oils. I wear one contact. I do mono-vision, and the fish oil and EPA, helps my eyes retain their moisture so my contacts don't get dry."
There's something else Reba definitely won't do -- even if she were asked -- and that's appearing in the pages of Playboy magazine.
"I don't think that phone call will be ringing anytime near soon," she jokes. "No, that's not [true].... I don't think so. I just don't think my mama would appreciate that. [laughs] No, that's something that doesn't appeal to me."
