No fancy face creams required for Lomana—she swears by humble Nivea to keep her skin supple. "What a wonder! Every time I open the can of @nivea_es its scent brings me to memory scenes from my childhood," she says. "A 'must' in the house and, also in the bag, to guarantee a hydrated skin at all times. Great for nourishing hands, elbows, knees, lips, prevent stretch marks.. this cream works for everything and I always carry it with me."


She Loves to Paddleboard

Lomana is happiest by the sand and sea, and paddleboards whenever she can. Not only is paddleboarding a great full-body workout, it encourages feel-good hormones, "which are great for your mood, self-esteem, mental health and wellbeing," says physiotherapist Shira Kramer, founder of BeActive Physio in Melbourne.


She Enjoys Tea


Lomana enjoys tea as part of her healthy diet, preferring to drink it without milk or cream. "Different teas offer different benefits," says Beth Czerwony, RD. "Choose what fits your need… Green tea is the champ when it comes to offering health benefits," says Czerwony. "It's the Swiss Army knife of teas. It covers a lot of territory. There are so many teas out there. Try different varieties and see what works best for you."


She Loves To Swim

Lomana loves to swim, especially in the ocean. Studies show that being near the ocean is tremendously good for both physical and mental health. "Blue space therapy is a woefully underused method of lifestyle prescription for our physical and mental health. Still, the research proves that taking a dip can boost our wellbeing ten-fold," says Dr. Ruth Micallef. "Wild swimming has a host of research-proven benefits, including improved self-esteem, social confidence, and resilience—to name just a few."


She Walks and Hikes

Lomana loves to walk as part of her daily lifestyle, and also for exercise. "The nice thing about hiking is that it exists along an entire continuum, from a gentle walk on a flat wooded path to mountain climbing," says Dr. Aaron L. Baggish, associate director of the Cardiovascular Performance Program at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital. "There's a real sense of peace and composure you get from being outside and away from everything."
