Eva Longoria covers the Jan-Feb 2012 issue of Health magazine. In the interview, Eva talks about the definition of a healthy life and whether or not she likes to exercise. She also shares her baby oil beauty secret.

On How You Define a Healthy Life: "People think health only has to do with your physical being, but for me, it's so much more. I remember after my divorce, I was so thin and everyone kept saying how great I looked and it was probably the most unhealthy place I've ever been. So it was funny what people would see as 'healthy.' In my worst time, people were saying I've never looked better. [But now] I have a great diet and exercise routine. And I try to have a healthy outlook. I'm your everlasting, hopeless optimist!"

On Whether or Not She Likes to Exercise: "My bachelor's degree is in kinesiology, so it's ingrained in me to work out. I was an aerobics instructor, and a personal trainer in college, so I was addicted to exercise. I used to do an hour and a half to two hours a day. I'd teach a class and then train clients. And I realized I didn't need that much. Now I like weight training and abs. I love abs. I hate the elliptical. I hate jogging. [Laughs] I despise cardio. I just...can't do it. So I try to do my cardio within the workout."

On Her Baby Oil Beauty Secret: "After I shower, I put baby oil all over my body. And then you dry that off so you have the smoothest, softest skin."
