Olivia Culpo: 'Deodorant marks give me anxiety'

The gorgeous pageant winner uses meditation to maintain her mental health.

One of beauty queen Olivia Culpo's biggest worries is leaving white deodorant streaks on her clothing.

After years of searching, the Miss Universe 2012 winner has finally found an antiperspirant that relieves her anxiety about the embarrassing cosmetic faux pas.

"I’m loving the Degree Ultraclear Black + White Dry Spray, because I can get ready from the gym and even sometimes in the car without worrying about any marks on my clothes," she shares with New York Magazine's The Cut column.

Olivia loves to work out, so a strong deodorant is an essential beauty product for her.

"Right now I’ve been really loving Soul Cycle and I do pilates very often," Nick Jonas' ex explains of her exercise routine. "I love to run. I also work out with a trainer sometimes, and that consists of more circuit training. I’m a big barre-class fan also. So there’s a lot of different workouts that I like to do.

"To me, it’s really important to just keep it fun, and that means adding a lot of variety and not sticking to one workout."

Overall wellness isn't just a physical concern for Olivia - the 25-year-old likes to keep her mind healthy through meditation.

"I started meditating when I was 18 years old," she shares. "My mom actually introduced it to me (sic), and my older sister is a yoga instructor. I’m so grateful to them for introducing me to that and getting on the meditation bandwagon because I think it’s really difficult to get yourself to do it and be consistent with it.

"I do fall in and out of it; it’s really hard to do it every single day like you’re supposed to, but I find that when I do take 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes before bed, it makes a huge difference in my day-to-day life."
