As the face of Almay, you’d expect Carrie Underwood to know a thing or two about beauty. But she really knows her stuff. She recently revealed all the specifics in a new Allure interviewfeature proving what we never thought could be true — she’s really just a woman battling blemishes and wishing for killer abs like the rest of us.

She shared that her toughest skin problem is fighting blemishes. “Since having a baby, my hormones seem to be having fun with my face.”

As for her (new shorter) hair, she says she doesn’t believe in a perfect hair day. Her exact response to the question was, “What’s that?” (I know, we couldn’t believe it either). But she may just still be scarred from her 6th grade perm.

When she does set out to get the gorgeous hair most could only dream of, she sticks with the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer, which makes her hair “smooth and shiny,” Orbie Dry Texturizing Spray for volume and the José Eber Trio 3-in-1 Clipless Curling Iron because it’s “a lot of tools in one!”

She also spilled some workout scoop saying her favorite exercise is Tabata which is 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds rest, for eight rounds (totally our favorite kind of workout too). She also noted that she detests doing ropes. “They are so good for you. But I hate them!” [Editors’ note: we don’t know what these are either. She’s just that advanced.]

The thing she likes about her appearance are her legs (which you can try to achieve too). But she’s still trying to get a washboard stomach. “Been trying to get abs for 10 years now!”
