You Star Elizabeth Lail in Workout Gear is "Stunning"

She wore a red and orange striped tank top and black shorts.

Elizabeth Lail is best known for her role in the hit series, You. In 2019, she spent time at the famous Fairy Pools. Lail shared a photo of herself wading in one of the pools on Instagram. She wore a red and orange striped tank top and black shorts. She received a lot of praise in the comments. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Elizabeth Lail stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Surrounds Herself With Creative People

In an interview with Story + Rain, Lail talked about how she got into acting. "I went to University of North Carolina School of the Arts for high school my senior year, and that molded my whole trajectory because, all of a sudden, I was surrounded by fellow artists. I was surrounded by my people. I didn't really know what the possibilities were in my small town. There aren't very many actors coming out of it. I fell in love with the school, so I wanted to go to college there. I drank all the Kool-Aid. I think I applied to maybe one school in New York, but the dream was to continue at the School of the Arts, and then move to New York or LA—I wasn't sure which."


She Gets Enough Sleep

Lail has a busy schedule. However, she doesn't let that stop her from getting enough sleep. She tells Coveteur, "You have to really prioritize sleep. I tend to take naps during lunch and I bring my own food, because it's very easy to just feed yourself out of emotional deprivation. You're just so stressed, so used up. So the more I can plan, the happier and healthier I tend to be."


She's Honest With Herself


Lail shared what she loves about acting to Story + Rain. "It's probably my number one source of food. It demands the truth from me, and so it's this really intense bullshit meter for me as a person, and as an instrument. It provides intense catharsis, I'm always questioning and challenging myself. It also demands that I be fully present."


She Helps The Enviroment

Lail is passionate about helping the environment. She shared some of the ways she does so with Story + Rain. "On my Obsixed list, is the Package Free store. It opened in my neighborhood and I walked in, I was like, 'this is amazing'. You start picking things up and you're like, 'I didn't realize there was another option for cotton swabs, for taking off my makeup'. I didn't realize how much waste I was creating in my beauty routine. That's a huge thing. I'm definitely a victim of the skincare obsession. The good news is, like anything, you just do little things at a time. I think the first thing I got was a reusable mug and I love it. I have a KeepCup. Aesthetically, it's very pretty. And I have a S'well water bottle. Those are the easiest changes to make because, especially in New York, you just put them in your tote bag and the coffee shop remembers you. They know your order, they're like, 'here's the girl with her own cup'. You'd be surprised, everyone is very down to make those kinds of changes. You just start saying no to moments of single use plastic or straws. I'm at the beginning of that journey and that's why I'm obsessed with it right now, because I'm exploring. I'm becoming very aware, and hoping to do so much more."


She Uses Rose Cream

Lail has amazing skin, and shared her favorite product with Story + Rain. "I love Dr. Hauschka's Rose Day Cream. I love the way that it smells. It makes me happy. You have to press it into your skin, so you have to go slow, and you're like, 'oh, this is a moment for me'."
