One look at actress-producer Joy Bryant’s Instagram grid and it’s clear the 47-year-old is into self-care. “Wellness to me is taking care of my mind, body and spirit. Champagne helps too!”

Dog Days

“I learned a lot about wellness from watching our dog, Bubba, may he rest in peace. He really had it dialed in: Get good sleep on the regular; eat the best food you can afford; exercise every day, even if it’s just a simple walk; sit in the sun and soak up some rays; give love to yourself and to others. I’ve adopted that as my wellness recipe, sprinkled with a healthy dose of gratitude.”

Pleasure Principle

“When it comes to self-care, a good orgasm goes a long way. So does staying hydrated.”

Med School

“In the past two years, I’ve added meditation to the mix because— whew,’ chile—these are some challenging times!”

Fit Club

“These days, I’m all about playing tennis and going for walks and hikes. I do want to put Pilates back on rotation, though. My body really likes it.”

Golden Hour

“Sunbathing in the nude is probably the closest thing to ‘out of the ordinary’ as I get. My grandmother, on the other hand, used to pee in the bathtub right before she let the water out. I think that’s why her skin was really smooth. Maybe I’ll try that when I get a usable bathtub.”

Routine Matters

“As for my beauty routine, Thayers Witch Hazel with Rose is a staple, as are the Retinol Night Serum and Acne Clear Invisible Dots from Peter Thomas Roth. I love face oils like Vintner’s Daughter, and rich moisturizers like Epicuren’s Ultra Rose Treat.”
