Jessica Lowndes is heating up British Columbia in her bathing suit. In a recent social media post the 90210 star shows off her amazing body in a swimsuit while on vacay with her family. “The perfect family getaway,” she captioned the series of Instagram snaps, including one of herself in a hot tub clinking glasses with her sister, Jacqui. How does the 35-year-old approach health and wellness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits.
“I live a healthy lifestyle and I crave healthy food,” Jessica dished to Cosmo UK. “I love porridge, I have bizarre cravings for it. I love it with brown sugar and bananas, and I’m a huge fan of cinnamon – I put cinnamon on everything.” Jessica revealed that she has “a sweet tooth” and “I don’t like to deprive myself,” she continued. “I think everything in moderation is the key.” For dinner she loves salmon and beetroot salads, “but any kind of grilled fish with veggies is amazing,” she says.
“A lot of the time” Jessica is “on location or living out of a suitcase,” so she doesn’t have time to go to the gym. “So basically all I do is sit-ups, push-ups and jumping jacks (or star-jumps as you call them!) lunges and the plank, and you repeat it five times,” she told Cosmo UK. “I love circuit training where you can do five exercises, 15-20 reps of each exercise, and I do it five times in a row – it only takes twenty minutes, and you can do it anywhere. You feel instantly better.”
Jessica also makes sure to hydrate. “I drink a lot of water – it speeds up your metabolism, makes everything run smoothly, and it makes your skin glow,” she told Cosmo. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.
Jessica, who describes herself as “a pretty active person” that is “always on the go,” has a workout that calms her down. “I love yoga,” she said. There is a laundry list of reasons to do yoga, explains Harvard Health. “Researchers found that people who practiced yoga for at least 30 minutes once a week for at least four years, gained less weight during middle adulthood,” they said. “People who were overweight actually lost weight. Overall, those who practiced yoga had lower body mass indexes (BMIs) compared with those who did not practice yoga. Researchers attributed this to mindfulness. Mindful eating can lead to a more positive relationship with food and eating.”
Jessica relies on professionals to help her with her routine. “If I’m in LA and have time, I love going to the gym and I work with different trainers, so it’s something I’ve just picked up,” she said.
