What Makes Alexis Ren So Special
Apart from having one of the hottest bodies, Alexis is irresistibly attractive. She has sharp features and beautiful skin. She has many young women who consider her their role model and follow her diet and daily regime meticulously.
She is grateful for her fans and the male attention she receives. However, she works really very hard to keep herself fit, as work doesn’t come easy and thus she spends around 2 hours each day toning her body.
She is humbled when fans come up to her on the street and allows them to take as many pictures as they want, as it gives her joy to make others happy.
When it comes to her diet, Alexis avoids bread, red meat and fast food. She prefers having a daily dose of fresh vegetables and fruits for all of her meals and stays clear of sugar and alcohol. She drinks plenty of water to keep herself hydrated and considers it an excellent skincare routine.

She grew up alongside three sisters and one brother. She is the middle child of five siblings. Alexis began her career at the age of thirteen and was homeschooled by her mother. In 2014, she was linked with the model, Jay Alvarezz. The two posted several pictures together and also came out in a music video for the song Hey by Fais feat. Afrojack. The two seemed to be a hot couple on social media, setting new couple goals every time they posted messages, pictures or videos to their social accounts. However, the entire buzz surrounding them fizzled out when both began posting cryptic messages for each other that finally ended with an ugly fight between them on ‘Twitter’.
