Harvey notably lost a lot of weight, leaving people clamoring for her secrets. She shared some of her secrets in an interview with ESSENCE at last year's Met Gala. "It's Pilates," she says. "It really changed my life…I've been consistently doing Pilates for the past year. I've done it for a few years, but I've been really consistent the last year."


She Used A Calorie Deficit

In the same interview, Harvey talked about the diet she used to lose weight. She says that she used a calorie deficit method. "I was consuming like 1200 calories a day max," she confessed. "I wasn't on a specific diet, I was just trying to do meat and veges and minimal carbs." A study in The National Institute of Health states that calorie deficits have a lot of benefits. "Calorie restriction


involves reducing food intake without causing malnutrition. Animal studies have found health benefits in calorie restriction that include improved metabolism, longer life spans, and delayed onset of age-associated diseases."


She Does Cardio


In addition to Pilates, Harvey made sure to do cardio. In particular, she ran on the treadmill. "I would do Pilates in the morning and then I would leave there, go to the gym and hop on the treadmill for 30 minutes," she said to ESSENCE. "Do some type of cardio, because that's how you drop [weight]. Pilates alone is not going to make you lose weight, it's just going to give you long, lean muscles."


She Keeps Her Skincare Simple

Harvey has her own line of skincare products, SKN by LH. She explained why she decided to create the line to Vogue. "I have rosacea and would struggle to find the right products to use," Harvey says. "Then I got into modeling, and between shoots and backstage at runway shows you have so much makeup being put on your face. My skin was constantly going through it. So after using, like, 20 different products on my face at one time, I felt like there had to be a simpler way for me to get my skin looking the way I wanted it to…I'm someone who has extremely sensitive skin, so I wanted to create an easy, step-by-step routine for all skin types, but one that definitely catered to people with sensitive skin who want to achieve a radiant complexion but don't know what to use to get it."


She Uses Clean Products

Harvey tells Teen Vogue that she likes to use clean skin products. She says that she decided to make her own line vegan as well. "I think [the defining factor is] that we're clean. We're vegan. We don't have any sulfates, no parabens, no petroleums, no synthetic dyes or fragrance or coloring. So all the good stuff. And, we're also suitable for all skin types, but we especially cater to sensitive skin. That was extremely important to me because, like I said, I have extremely sensitive skin and finding products that really worked for me and my skin."
