She's Comfortable With Her Skin
Allen has struggled with her skin, specifically her acne, all her life. However, when she appeared on Love Island, she learned to accept her skin and wasn't insecure about it. "I remember being in the villa and thinking 'all these girls are so beautiful and flawless' and there were guys I was trying to impress," she said to Hello! Magazine. "I wasn't gonna start sleeping in makeup – I haven't slept in makeup my whole life – I would have made it worse in the long run and I would have felt even more conscious of my face… so I owned it."
She Went Back To Training
Allen revealed on Instagram that she had lost a lot of weight recently, and that it was the result of finding love for herself again that inspired her to go back to training. "I'm strong in myself and I have that strength in my body that I used to have like over two years ago. I just had lost love for training, I'd lost love myself."
She Spends Time By The Water
Allen loves to spend time at the beach and by the water, and she makes sure to take a lot of stunning photos for Instagram. She has posted several beach shots of herself on social media. "Being outside offers other benefits, too. It offers an emotional boost and can help you feel less tense, stressed, angry or depressed. And sunlight can give your body vitamin D, too," says the Mayo Clinic.
She Goes Hiking
Another of Allen's favorite outdoor activities is hiking. She posted this series of photos on Instagram of a trip she took. A couple of these shots were of her hiking on the road, and of the stunning scenery she saw. She captioned the photo, "So much Happiness in the simplest of things." "Get moving with these low-risk outdoor activities during the COVID-19 pandemic," suggests the Mayo Clinic:
- "Walking, running and hiking
- Rollerblading and biking
- Fishing and hunting
- Rock or ice climbing
- Kayaking, canoeing, diving, boating or sailing
- Skiing, including cross-country and downhill skiing
- Ice skating
- Fitness classes, held outside or virtually, that allow distance"
She Keeps a Positive Attitude
"I just like to smile… smiling is my favourite!" Francesca once captioned a post, asking if you could name that film. (The answer? Pretty sure it's Elf.) Her good mood helps her health. "Indeed, some studies show that personality traits such as optimism and pessimism can affect many areas of your health and well-being. The positive thinking that usually comes with optimism is a key part of effective stress management. And effective stress management is associated with many health benefits. If you tend to be pessimistic, don't despair — you can learn positive thinking skills," says the Mayo Clinic.
