WE’RE sure it takes a lot of work to look like Shakira. If you follow her on Instagram, you’d know that the singer is extremely busy. Between studio time, being a mom to two boys (Milan, 5, and Sacha, 3), shooting music videos and trying to fit in quality time with her partner, Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué, Shakira’s life can seem hectic, but even with all of that on her plate, we’ve heard her personal trainer say that she works out five or six days a week, sometimes squeezing in a workout twice a day! Here’s what else keeps Shakira looking her fab self.
