Cobie Smulders in Self April 2014: My Clarisonic Sounds Like a Sex Toy

Posted Wednesday April 2, 2014 2:53 PM GMT

Fresh off the series finale of "How I Met Your Mother," Cobie Smulders graced the cover Self magazine's April 2014 issue.

The 31-year-old Canadian actress looked super cute in designer duds from Roxy and DKNY for the David Gubert-shot spread while opening up about everything from her fitness routines to her favorite healthy meals.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Smulder's interview below. For more, be sure to visit Self!

On her Yin yoga workouts:
"I've never been the person who's like, 'I've got to get a four-pack of abs!' It's 90 minutes of intense stretching. You hold each pose for five minutes [each]. It's a stress reliever. The warrior poses are great for building muscles."

On her diet:
"My usual day: green smoothie for breakfast - if I want to get fancy, it's eggs on arugula - fruit for a snack, a salad with protein for lunch, and fish and quinoa for dinner. I'll have pasta two out of seven meals. And if I have 2 bites of my husband's mac & cheese, I don't kill myself! I just slow down and enjoy it, instead of shoveling it in my face."

On her beauty regime:
"I treat myself to a facial every few months. It's like getting your car washed. They get in there and get stuff out. I've also started using a Clarisonic exfoliating brush a couple of times a week. It sounds and looks like a sex toy, so when I use it, I'm like, 'I'm doing something for my face, honey! It's for my face!'"
