Well, that's one way to stay healthy.

Selena Gomez looked better than ever as she made her grand return to the spotlight during Sunday's American Music Awards, but it turns out her new and improved look is no coincidence. The 24-year-old singer revealed that she's made a few changes to her health routine, including sitting in a "sweat bed" for 45 minutes to stay focused.

"I'm horrible at discipline when it comes to working out," Gomez confessed in a new interview with Elle.com, "So I've been working with my trainer Amy Rosoff Davis for a year now, and when we started the tour, I really wanted to keep it up. I wanted to be healthy; I wanted to feel good. I just wanted to make sure I was the best I could be for the show and for my fans."

"We'll do hikes. We have a Pilates machine," she continued. "I have a sweat bed, which looks like a burrito that I wrap myself up in, and I sweat for about 45 minutes. Just little things to kind of keep me healthy and keep me focused."

If you're as confused as we are, have no fear, as Gomez quickly clarifies the bizarre treatment.

"You lay in these beds in a sweatsuit, and they wrap you up and you sweat for 45 minutes and it releases all the toxins of your body," she explained. "I know it sounds gross, but you just sit in your sweat for an hour and don't immediately shower because there's natural collagen in your toxins that it actually makes your skin feel softer before you wash it all off. It feels incredible."

"It's changed my skin, it's kind of changed my body as well, so it feels really good. That's kind of been something that works for me personally," Gomez continued. 

The actress also opens up about her skin, revealing that she'd much prefer to keep it natural than pile on the makeup.

"I just can't understand when -- and no offense -- people have to wear makeup all the time," Gomez revealed, adding that you "can't really fight" pimples. "Life is life."
