Sophie Piper in Bathing Suit Says "Over and Out"
Love Island star Sophie Piper is looking back on a fantastic vacation in beautiful Croatia. The sister of singer Rochelle Humes shared pictures from her trip, including ones of her posing in a white knit bikini, and another of her wearing a hot pink bathing suit. Piper also shared a picture of herself frolicking in the ocean in a lime-green bikini. "Over and out 🇭🇷," she captioned the post. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Piper stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Matcha Green Tea
Piper is a big fan of delicious iced matcha green tea. "Matcha is a very fine, high-quality green tea powder made from the entire leaves of tea bushes grown in the shade," says Penn Medicine. "Since it is the only form of tea in which the leaves are ingested, matcha contains even more antioxidants than regular green tea."
Piper enjoys skiing vacations with her friends. "Since cross-country skiing uses all your major muscle groups, it burns a lot of calories – about 900 calories per hour," says Jonathan Wisor, PhD. "This is equivalent to four KitKat bars, 10 Reese's peanut butter cups, or 300 M&Ms. And all of this is experienced in a beautiful, placid, snowy alpine environment!"
Sleep and Self-Confidence
Piper swears by eight hours of sleep to look and feel her best, and admits she doesn't always make time for the gym. "To be fair, I've been slacking in the gym department," she says. "I definitely could've gone to the gym more. Beauty-wise, I have been trying to get some sun to clear out the spots but I put as much makeup on as possible. In the nighttime, I'll get dressed up but in the day, it'll be just a bit of mascara and foundation to cover up the eye bags. I feel like doing something like Love Island, you have to be confident in your body so yeah, I am confident. I am sure everyone has their lumps and bumps they try and hide!"
No Cosmetic Surgery
Piper says cosmetic surgery is not something she's interested in. "It's your own body, you can do what you want to," she says. "I wouldn't have surgery myself; I don't want it. I've got such a low pain tolerance as well; I'd be squirming around. You've got to be body confident. A few gym classes can't hurt either."
Supplements and Hair Masks
Piper takes supplements to support her health and beauty. "Biotin supplements I've literally been taking them every day," she says. "Castor oil is amazing, and this Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie – which is so so good. And some of the Cantu products I really like. It's just finding out what works for you. I'm trying to do as many hair masks as possible really."
