Poh Ling Yeow in Bathing Suit is "So Calm"

Here’s how she stays in shape.

Poh Ling Yeow, the MasterChef and I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! star, recently finished up a vacation in Castelsardo. She posted a set of beach photos on Instagram to wrap up her trip. In the first photo, Yeow posed by the shore at sunset. She wore a black swimsuit and sunglasses. She captioned the post, "I floated for at least an hour in the most sparkling, turquoise, Mediterranean water which was so calm that I quite nearly dozed off. When I opened my eyes I was exactly where I'd started albeit facing the opposite direction. In Australia, I'd have been dunked a hundred times not to mention a potential shark biscuit or drifted halfway to another continent! Instead of sticky fine sand, tiny polished pebbles that fell cleanly off the skin and made my feet sink deep, were full of polished glass and ceramic treasure." How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Poh Ling Yeow stays in shape 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!


She Goes All Natural With Skincare

Yeow has gorgeous skin, and she doesn't get too fancy with skincare. She tells that she believes in using natural processes and products on her skin. "I'm a great believer in aging gracefully and naturally. I'm definitely low maintenance in that I don't go to any kind of salon. Anything I can't achieve from home, using good quality products, is a no."


She Asks For Help When She Needs It

While Yeow likes to do most of her skincare by herself, she also isn't afraid to get other people involved. Yeow tells that she isn't afraid to get help when she needs to. "I figure you're fighting a losing battle once too many people are involved but I'm also very open-minded about people who like to get some extra help – everyone's needs are different."


She Remembers Her Sunscreen

Yeow tells that she likes to spend time outside. Therefore, she has to put sunscreen on, to protect her skin. "I spend a lot of time outdoors, gardening and walking and sunspots pop up almost instantly with age, so SPF is of course an imperative each day." 


She Doesn't Shop Hungry

Yeow has a trick to not buy too many unhealthy groceries. She tells The Nutrition Guru that she never goes shopping when she's hungry. "Don't go shopping on an empty stomach. I have, and have to say don't do it or you'll have what I call a dirty chaser for dinner. A dirty chaser goes like this. You have crisps in the car on the way home with the shopping because you're starving, then dinner is wrecked."


She Does Things To De-Stress

Yeow has a busy schedule, and she admits this can be stressful. Yeow tells Prevention that she likes to do things that relax her. "I'm a massive stress head and incredibly obsessive. For releasing anxiety, I've found breathing, writing a list or thoughts down, cleaning, or gardening really helps."
