She Goes Running

De Lesseps lives an active life. She makes sure to do some cardio workouts each day. Her go-to cardio exercise is running.

"It is widely accepted that regular physical activity is beneficial for cardiovascular health. Frequent exercise is robustly associated with a decrease in cardiovascular mortality as well as the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Physically active individuals have lower blood pressure, higher insulin sensitivity, and a more favorable plasma lipoprotein profile," says one study.


She Does A Variety Of Exercises

De Lesseps does a lot of different things to stay in shape. She revealed her fitness routine to Life & Style. "I do weights for the arms, because I have to wear these dresses that are sleeveless, and then the legs and then the tummy, so I have my routine that I do," she continued. "Then I do yoga."

One of de Lesseps' biggest wellness and beauty secrets is staying hydrated. She tells People that she drinks a lot of water each day. "I think working out is a really important part of anyone's daily beauty routine and drinking enough water to hydrate the skin. Remember to drink 20 min before & 20 min after meals. I use Dr. Daryl Gioffre's mineral & green juices every morning."
