Mrs. Trump keeps up a grueling schedule as First Lady, in addition to being Mom to 12 year old Barron. She continues to keep health and fitness at the top of her priority list, whether she is in the White House or traveling the world. What is the routine that keeps the 49-year-old Melania Trump fit, healthy, and ready to greet the day with plenty of energy?

She wakes up early.

Mrs. Trump is up at 5:30 each day in her bedroom in the White House. She is a staunch believer in getting a good night’s sleep, often leaving events early to get to bed on time. This allows her to get up before the dawn to accomplish all her morning tasks.

She is committed to a light workout each morning.

This Slovenian-born former model is no stranger to keeping her body in top condition, and she has a few fitness secrets that are simple and efficient. She starts her day with light, in-home workouts that consist of ankle weights, Pilates, and other low-impact exercises. As America’s most private first lady, she prefers an exercise routine she can do from her own home or hotel room.

She drinks a smoothie.

Trump tries to start her day with a vitamin packed smoothie. She is dedicated to eating at least 7 pieces of fruit per day, and they often come in the form of a healthy morning drink. Melania Trump shared the fresh and organic ingredients she uses on her Facebook page.

Oatmeal is always an option.

If Melania Trump doesn’t have her fruit in a morning smoothie, she opts for oatmeal instead. Of course, we are not talking about a packet of instant. America’s First Lady enjoys steel-cut oats that are mixed with a variety of spices and other healthy add-ons. This choice gives great protein for energy throughout the day, as well as plenty of fiber.

She gets Barron ready for school.

As a full-time Mom, Melania Trump also gets her son Barron ready for his day at St. Andrew’s in Potomac, Maryland. She wakes him up, gets him breakfast, makes his lunch, and makes sure all his homework is in his backpack, just like millions of other Moms across the U.S.

She takes her vitamins.

In addition to her smoothie, Melania Trump follows the ACE method when it comes to supplements. ACE stands for Vitamins A, C, and E, which  provide her body with plenty of antioxidants. This part of her morning routine keep her looking and feeling younger, and also reduces the risk of disease.

Trump has a beauty routine that keeps her looking much younger than her years, and perfectly applied makeup also does its part. Trump’s makeup is said to take a full hour and 15 minutes to apply.

She is a firm believer in hydrating the skin.

Melania swears by moisturizing both day and night, and always starts her day with an oxygen-infused moisturizer. She also drinks at least 7 glasses of water a day to keep her skin firm and glowing. After washing her face, she uses a refreshing Vitamin C tonic, and then the oxygen cream infused with vitamins A, C, and E. The First Lady has come out against Botox and injections, and says healthy living is the key to beauty.
