This is extra important now that there is a new variant, Omicron, stalking us, along with Delta. "We'd like to get as many people who were originally vaccinated with the first regimen boosted," Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has said. Read on to see 7 ways Elizabeth Hurley stays in shape and healthy and the photos that prove they work—and to get beach-ready yourself, don't miss these essential 30 Best-Ever Celebrity Bathing Suit Photos!
Here's When You Should Get Boosted
If you received a Pfizer vaccine, teens 16-17 can get a booster and all adults should get a booster, "at least 6 months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination series," says the CDC. If you received Moderna, adults should get theirs within the same timeframe. If you received J&J, adults should get a booster "at least 2 months after completing your primary COVID-19 vaccination."
Hurley is Not a Gym Rat
"I don't really do any set exercise, per se, because I prefer to get my exercise from doing something than being in the gym," Elizabeth says. Adds the Mayo Clinic: "There are many activities you can enjoy close to home, whether you're visiting your favorite public, state or national park, or just spending time in your neighborhood. While various activities may not be possible during some seasons, there are many ways to be active outdoors throughout the year. Get moving with these low-risk outdoor activities during the COVID-19 pandemic:
- Walking, running and hiking
- Rollerblading and biking
- Fishing and hunting
- Rock or ice climbing
- Kayaking, canoeing, diving, boating or sailing…"
She Eats Organic When She Can
"While the evidence isn't totally conclusive on exactly how eating organic foods might boost your health, I say the research on avoiding pesticide residue and on more antioxidants and healthy fats is solid enough to choose organic," registered dietitian Keri Glassman tells our sister site Eat This, Not That!. "If you can't always make that choice because of budget constraints, try using the Dirty Dozen list to figure out where to compromise on produce. When it comes to meat, try to commit to organic even more, because nothing good is going to come out of hormones and antibiotics in your food. Another note: If you're pregnant and/or are feeding kids, organic is even more important, because many pesticides have been shown to affect the development of babies' brains and endocrine systems."
She Stays Hydrated
"Fluids can come from a variety of sources including water, milk, 100% fruit juice, tea, coffee. Alcohol, particularly in large amounts, can cause the body to get rid of more fluid; so if you drink, do so in moderation. Avoiding large amounts of caffeinated beverages can also help you stay well hydrated," says the Cleveland Clinic. "It is estimated that foods provide about 20% of our water intake. Including plenty of water-rich fruits and vegetables can be a good source of fluids. Replacing sugar-sweetened beverages, whole milk, and juice with water is a healthy choice that can support weight loss by reducing calorie intake."
This is What Wellness Means to Her
"It means being as healthy as you can in your lifestyle and as healthy as you can emotionally. You need to balance both. Of course it's important to eat well and exercise. It's also really important to look after yourself emotionally. People often ask me how you can look good as you age, and for me it's a couple of things. You need to look after your skin, that's important. I feel very blessed because I've worked with the Estée Lauder companies for 22 years, so I have great products. You also have to look after your health. You can't look good if you're not healthy, and diet plays a big part. You can't smoke and have too much alcohol. We all get hard knocks in life, but it's important to stay positive and stay engaged, and not be angry. Anger doesn't seem to go hand in hand with wellness," she told the Cut.
This is Her Bath Routine
"Evening baths are really important to me. I have one pretty much every day of my life, just before I go to bed. I always use a Jo Malone bath oil. She's got some unbelievable smells. My favorite one is called Nectarine Blossom. It smells beautifully — very girly, and it relaxes me," she told the Cut.
She is a Crusader Against Breast Cancer
Hurley is a global ambassador for The Estée Lauder Companies' Breast Cancer Campaign. "When my grandmother lost her life to breast cancer in the early 90's, nobody spoke openly about this disease," she once wrote. "Times have changed, but people are still dying. Today, our call to help end breast cancer for all is more urgent than ever as breast cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide," Liz continued.
