Drew Barrymore has always been known for her carefree attitude and unique sense of style. But in a recent interview with Glamour, the actress revealed that she’s not as into self-care as some might think.
“My legs aren’t shaven,” Barrymore admitted. “I haven’t had a haircut in a year. I’m not good at any of that stuff. I’m not a big self-care person.”
While some might view this as a negative, Barrymore sees it as an opportunity to focus on other aspects of her life. “I’m not good at that, but I’m good at other things,” she said. “I’m good at being a mom. I’m good at being a friend. I’m good at working.”
Barrymore went on to explain how she makes up for her lack of self-care. “I really try to take care of myself mentally and emotionally,” she said. “I read a lot. I meditate. I do a lot of things to take care of my mind.”
In addition to mental self-care, Barrymore also focuses on taking care of her body in ways that feel natural and enjoyable to her. “I dance around the house. I go for walks. I love to swim. I love being in nature,” she said.
For Barrymore, self-care isn’t about following a strict routine or adhering to a certain set of beauty standards. It’s about finding what works for her and making sure she’s taking care of herself in a way that feels authentic and fulfilling.
Her honesty about her approach to self-care is refreshing in a world that often puts pressure on women to look and feel a certain way. By being true to herself and focusing on what makes her happy, Barrymore sets an example for others to do the same.
Ultimately, self-care looks different for everyone. While some may find joy in pampering themselves with beauty treatments and spa days, others may prefer a more low-key approach. Whatever works for you, the most important thing is to prioritize taking care of yourself in a way that feels right for you.
