6 Secrets of Alycia Debnam-Carey's Beach Body

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 

Alycia Debnam-Carey is heating up social media with her beach body. In a new Instagram post the former Fear of the Walking Dead star flaunts her amazing body in a swimsuit during a day at the beach. "Summer's coming 💧🧴," she captioned the swimsuit snap. How does the star approach diet, fitness, and self-care? Here are 5 secrets of Alycia Debnam-Carey's beach body. 




Alycia starts her day off with a stretch. "Because my life is quite different day-to-day, it is important for me to keep some consistent routines in the morning. I try and exercise or stretch most mornings if I can," she told Grazia. "Stretching keeps the muscles flexible, strong, and healthy, and we need that flexibility to maintain a range of motion in the joints," says Harvard Health. "Without it, the muscles shorten and become tight. Then, when you call on the muscles for activity, they are weak and unable to extend all the way. That puts you at risk for joint pain, strains, and muscle damage."



Alycia keeps her body lean and toned with the help of Pilates. "I've been doing an online Pilates class, which always gets the endorphins going and sets me up for a good day," she told Grazia. Why is pilates a good workout? According to the Mayo Clinic there are lots of benefits to the workout, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health." It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.



Alycia prioritizes sleep. "I'm a night owl so I usually go to sleep quite late, but I'm trying to change this habit. I do love a peppermint tea in the evening or melatonin to help me sleep. If I have the time, I love a bath too," she told Grazia. "Every day is quite different for me, so my wake-up time varies depending on what I'm doing that day, especially if I'm working. However, I am not a morning person, so if I get the chance to sleep in, I will be sleeping in. I try to get out of bed before 9:00AM but I'd be lying if I didn't say it's more likely around 10:30AM."



In the winter Alycia hits the slopes. "Shoop shoop ⛷️," she captioned a post of herself downhill skiing. Research has linked downhill skiing to a number of health benefits. In addition to promoting physical fitness, it may decrease risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Studies have also found that the more frequently a person skis, prevalence of known hypercholesterolemia, systemic hypertension, diabetes, the frequency of mental stress and the occurrence of memory deficits declines. 



Mental health is crucial to supporting your physical health, Alycia maintains. "What started my journey on a better understanding of self-care was talking to a therapist. Though therapy can be a wonderful safe space for addressing specific mental health issues, you don't need to be going through a crisis to benefit from talking to a therapist.  Just having a point of reference that is unbiased and is with your best interest at heart, that's been a really important part of my mental and emotional growth—having an access point can allow you to get in touch with your deeper needs," she added to Rose Inc. 


Self Care

Alycia prioritizes self-care. "Self-care is a really interesting one because you think, 'I'm going to take a bubble bath. I'm going to put a face mask on and then watch a show', but I think in this last year, having been in lockdown, it's shown me that there are really no amounts of bubble bath and masks and sitting in front of the TV binge watching Netflix that's going to help me calm down and relax. We're all suddenly forced to keep doing versions of that, and for me, true self-care really had to come from a mental, emotional, wellbeing space, which is hard," she told Rose Inc
