    The first. You could also say 'She looks after herself well'.

    Re: good/well

    Irrelevant musing: it struck me the other day that "well" is an adverb, and the regular adverb form predicted by the normal rule of adverb formation - "goodly" - is in fact an adjective. Once again I thank heaven that I don't have to learn this stuff.
