Ja­clyn Smith

The iconic ac­tress, en­tre­pre­neur, and breast can­cer sur­vivor stays bal­anced with mind­ful work, work­outs, and nu­tri­tion

Better Nutrition - - TRENDWATCH - By Chris Mann

More than four decades af­ter she and her fel­low Char­lie’s An­gels be­came sym­bols of fe­male em­pow­er­ment— and 17 years af­ter she beat stage- 1 breast can­cer with ra­di­a­tion and a lumpec­tomy— Ja­clyn Smith con­tin­ues to take charge of all as­pects of her well- be­ing. Her se­cret: when pos­si­ble, fo­cus­ing on one thing at a time.

“There’s bal­ance to life and I think that’s hard to come by,” says the ac­tress, who at 73 now jug­gles her fash­ion and beauty em­pire with the joys of play­ing with her two- year- old grand­daugh­ter, Bea. “There’s so much around you and so many things that are stim­u­lat­ing, but you’ve got to do them one at a time some­times. It’s about bal­ance and be­ing good to your­self.”

Smith finds this bal­ance in part by fu­el­ing her body with sup­ple­ments— in­clud­ing cal­cium and psyl­lium husk and vi­ta­mins B com­plex, C, and D— and a diet in­formed in part by the eat­ing habits of her hus­band of 21 years, pe­di­atric heart sur­geon Bradley Allen.

Most known for her role in Char­lie’s An­gels, Smith cred­its a “one- thing- at- a- time” ap­proach to life as a se­cret to hap­pi­ness.
