Millie Court Shows Off Legs in Swimsuit Photo "On the Beach"
Millie Court is heating up Bondi Beach – in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the Love Island star shows off her amazing body in a bathing suit while sunbathing in Australia. "Wishing I was back laying on the beach," she captioned the series of Instagram snaps. "Babe," commented one of her followers. "Absolutely incredible you are," added another. How does the reality star approach health and fitness? Celebwell rounded up some of her top lifestyle habits.
No Crash Dieting
During her appearance on Love Island, Millie gained weight and was trolled by her followers. What they didn't know is that she crash dieted to get camera ready – and it wasn't healthy for her. "[In] the weeks leading up to Love Island, I felt the need to lose several pounds because I knew I was going to be surrounded by beautiful, slim girls. I worked out every single day and ate salad for lunch and to tell you the truth I was miserable while doing it," she said in a post. "I went from a size 10 to a six, and it's the smallest I've ever been as a young adult. Because of my height, this made me look unhealthily skinny, of which I was (not eating barely anything, feeling ill all the time, tired, dizzy) and I remember looking at myself, I'd lost my boobs and my bum and those curves I once had and I missed them."
Millie loves her body and embraces every curve. "We're all different shapes and sizes, each size perfect in our own way. But please don't get stuck to the beauty standard of 'perfection'," she wrote in the same post. "Loving our imperfections can be difficult, but when you learn to embrace them and realise that our imperfections don't define us, they are just a part of us alongside everything that creates you as a person."
Milllie is a big fan of a self-care routine. Her go-to method? Baths. "Drowning my sorrows in the bath because my Met Gala invite got lost 💔…," she captioned this Instagram snap. Why should you take a nightly bath? Not only have they been linked to better sleep and even found helpful to minimize anxiety and depression, but one recent study found that they may even boast cardiovascular benefits.
Millie maintains a healthy diet but allows herself to cheat. Her guilty pleasure? Burgers. "Last stop in LA," she captioned this photo of herself standing outside of SoCal's famous In-N-Out Burger.
One of Millie's favorite fitness methods is hiking – a great whole body workout says National Parks Service. "Obligatory Hollywood sign pic wearing all @puma," she captioned this snap from one of her excursions. Some of the physical benefits include building stronger muscles and bones, improving your sense of balance, improving your heart health, and decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems.
In her recent post, Millie reads a book on the beach. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals.
Millie understands the importance of hydration, snapping a photo of her Fiji water bottle during her day at the beach. 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, according to the Mayo Clinic.
