Before Ali Fedotowsky first hit TV screens on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, she thought "'Hey, I'm in shape, I fit in my clothes, I eat well, I look good'." When she started appearing on television, though, some viewers criticized, she tell StyleList, "all these flaws I never saw myself."

Thankfully, her real fans give her support. "I get emails from young girls all the time who tell me they look up to me, and from Moms who say they allow their children to watch me because they believe I'm a good role model," Ali tells StyleList. "That's what keeps me strong — I'm happy with my healthy body and curves, and would never want my young fans to think otherwise."

Not that everyone doesn't need some help. Miss Ali announced today that she is helping kick off Biore Skincare and the Physique 57 workout system's national tour. "I'm a big fan of the small, asymmetric movements in Physique 57," Ali says. "Big lunges and bicep curls seem exhausting when I do them, but these smaller movements trick your brain into thinking you're not working as hard, even though you're actually working harder."

In terms of her own beauty regimen, the 26-year-old tells StyleList she keeps makeup minimal and just adds a half a strip on her outer lash line for an instant pick-me-up that has her looking polished and camera-ready, and uses individual lashes for even more natural day-to-day looks.

Ali says she doesn't just stay in shape to feel good. She has a lot to live for — namely a certain dimpled future husband named Roberto Martinez. "I work out because it feels good. I want to live a long, healthy life with my wonderful fiance!"
