Elle Canada, Katy Perry Elle Canada

Katy Perry looks so fierce on the cover of Elle Canada that we can almost hear her roar!

Clad in a head-turning houndstooth ensemble, the sassy singer flaunts her envy-inducing good looks in the October issue.

And thankfully for us, Perry opened up to the magazine about a few of her tips and tricks that keep her looking picture perfect.

Despite her fabulously fit form, the star admits she struggles finding time to schedule in her daily workout. But lately, she's been a bit more concerned with working her mind rather than her body.

"I make sure to give myself a break. I had to find that balance," she said in an interview with the magazine. "But I learned this thing called Transcendental Meditation, which I do as much as I possibly can. It's 20 minutes and you're supposed to do it twice a day, but I only do it once every other day—but anyway, it works. People say you should work out 30 minutes a day—none of us works out 30 minutes a day!"

As for her flawless raven-haired locks, it turns out she has a trusty product she relies on for making her trips to the salon last for days and days.

"Dry shampoo by Oribe is amazing," she revealed when asked about what she keeps in her makeup bag. "It's great for those of us who want to keep a blowout forever."

But when it comes to nails, Perry, who has been known to rock everything from leopard print to President Obama's face on her fingernails, admits that traditional trips to the salon don't cut it for her. 

"I don't get regular manicures anymore," she said. "I love Dashing Diva nail stickers."

As for her other beauty must-have beauty products, the 28-year-old keeps things pretty basic, making sure to carry a "lip balm that has some tint and that brings out the color you have" and Hempz lotion.

Not exactly what we were expecting from the gal who is known for dying her hair in over-the-top colors, and who recently sported a grill at the MTV Video Music Awards!

But then again, Perry's embracing a more mature persona in her late twenties.

"I think that it's a very important time, when you kind of let go of childish things and accept the wisdom that comes with age," she explained. "That's exactly where I am now."

And from the looks of things, it's a stage in life that suits her beautifully!
