Clipping in at SoulCycle is only a small part of Kerry Washington‘s wellness routine: In addition to sweating it out in class, the actress likes to load up on omega-3 supplements for beauty benefits and practice self-care in the form of deep tissue massages.

But that’s not the only wellness trick she has up her stylish sleeve. The Scandal star also schedules regular massages to keep her stress levels down after long work days, often spent in heels.
