Terry Crews lost weight over the Covid-19 pandemic by fasting for 16 hours a day.

The 52-year-old opened up to Page Six Style on how he keeps in shape, and revealed that he’s a big fan of intermittent fasting, which he does with his wife Rebecca.

“I do intermittent fasting and Rebecca does it too. I eat emotionally, and when times get rough I feel like, oh man, that donut looks so good,” the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star shared, noting that he works out every morning, then eats his first meal at 2pm.

“So I have an eight-hour period to eat, and the rest is 16 hours of fasting. I actually ended up losing weight over the pandemic instead of gaining,” Crews explained.

He’s also dedicated to a good skincare regime to avoid suffering from breakouts after wearing heavy make-up while on set.

“I use a lot of Kiehl’s products to exfoliate. I’m on TV, so I have to! I also use the Clarisonic. Whether I’m wearing make-up for Brooklyn Nine-Nine or America’s Got Talent, I need to have my face totally cleaned (afterward) because a lot of guys just leave that stuff on, and you break out like crazy. I make sure I really scrub,” Crews shared.

And his beauty secret is a $10 body oil by Alba Botanica, which he credits for helping him look the best he’s ever looked.

“You know when you’re lifting weights and stuff like that, your muscles are growing and your skin is pulling. People always say, ‘Terry Crews is oiled up.’ That body oil, it keeps your skin really, really nice. I’ll be 53 this year, but I look better than I did when I was 25 and I’m very, very thankful,” he shared.
