The Hills star opens up about her struggle with cellulite and the workout that’s really made a difference for her!
Lo Bosworth grew up on the beach so it’s no surprise she knows how to look great in a bikini. But, believe it or not, The Hills star struggles with cellulite! To help boost her confidence and get her body bikini ready (which, as you can see above, it totally is now!) she teamed up with NIVEA for the 2010 NIVEA Good-bye Cellulite, Hello Bikini! Challenge. We caught up with Lo at the Four Seasons Los Angeles on July 7 to chat about her time on the program.
What did you learn from the NIVEA Good-bye Cellulite, Hello Bikini! Challenge?
Lo: When I was first approached to do it, I felt a little bit hesitant because I felt like [cellulite is] a secret nobody wants to talk about it. But it’s a girl secret, so I’m being brave and telling women it’s okay to do something about it. NIVEA provided me with a solution to it, so how could I turn that down? For me, I have been doing the NIVEA Goodbye Cellulite challenge for four weeks now. It combines an overhaul of your health, fitness, and eating. You use the product in the morning and at night – I really slather it on before I go to bed. If you overhaul all those things, you’ll have a way better result and you’ll feel way happier with yourself after four weeks than just using the skin care product alone.
What’s your workout plan like?
Lo: Part of the NIVEA challenge was to give yourself a kick in the butt as far as fitness is concerned and I already do a lot of cardio – I do spin class at the gym. It burns almost 500 calories an hour, so I didn’t really need any more cardio in my life. I started taking a kettlebells class – it’s strength training. My goal was to build a little more lean muscle in my body. It helps you burn calories faster, it gives you more muscle, so that’s what I’ve been doing.
What’s one of your beauty secrets?
Lo: I just got a Mason Pearson brush. I know that’s not necessarily a hair spray or something, but my brush is my best friend. It has boar bristles. When you brush through curls, it just gives it a really beautiful, soft, classic look – kind of a throwback look, and it’s a way to sort of change up the standard curly hairdo you so often see.
Do you always feel beautiful despite your flaws?
Lo: Everybody wakes up and they have fat days, they have bad hair days. I’m comfortable with who I am on the inside and I try to show that to people more than anything else. What I’ve learned is that it’s okay to have bad days. You sleep it off and you wake up the next day and everything’s alright again.
