Devon Aoki Shares Swimsuit Photos of Her "Favorites"
Devon Aoki is modeling in her swimsuit. In one of her latest social media posts, a compilation of snaps from a Vogue photoshoot, the supermodel shows off her gorgeous body while in the water. How does the 41-year-old mother-of-four keep herself healthy and looking fit? It all comes down to her active lifestyle. Celebwell has compiled some of her top diet, fitness, and health habits.
She Has Her Own Definition of Beauty
"Everyone has their own insecurities, regardless of how you look or how people perceive you, but sometimes people give their insecurities too much power." Aoki told Tarts in an exclusive interview, via Fox News. "Defining beauty is simply a matter of opinion. For me, real beauty has very little to do with the structure of someone's face or body."
She Has Worked Her Arms
For her role in the Mutant Chronicles, Devon did a lot of arm work. "I had to pump my arms up quite a bit. They were a little on the weak side when we started and by the end of filming, I was pretty rock solid," she told Tarts. "The funny thing was most the boys got dummy guns that weigh very little, and I got the real McCoy! I was running around with a 30-pound gun under my arm for the entire film. That might have been their way of telling me I needed some muscles!"
Devon enjoys swimming in the ocean. Here she is with one of her kids, swimming with fins on. Swimming is a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity, according to the CDC. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running, can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses. In addition to the many physical benefits, there are multiple studies supporting the mental health benefits of swimming as well.
