My Healthy: Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman
The co-star of Lifetime's 'UnReal' on his healthy favorites.
In the buzzy drama series UnREAL, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman plays Jay, a cutthroat producer of a reality dating show (a la The Bachelor). But in season two, which premieres on Lifetime June 6, Jay becomes a little less ruthless as he starts to find his moral compass—which will likely create even more drama on the behind-the-scenes show. And since it was just announced that the show has already been picked up for a third season, expect more drama for at least a couple more years. But in real life, Bowyer-Chapman is much less dramatic than his character, and places a strong emphasis on his healthy lifestyle. Here, he shares the essentials that keep him going:
Teakwood S'well Water Bottle
"This is the best quality water bottle I've ever owned. It keeps my smoothies ice cold and my coffee piping hot. I try not to use plastic water bottles, so this product is the perfect combination of practical, chic and environmentally friendly."
VitaMix 780, $800
"I practically live off smoothies. As a New Yorker, I'm always on the go and rarely cook at home. I've become a smoothie expert with the help of my Vitamix. A green smoothie with kale, banana, blueberries, almond milk and Vega One is good in the morning or after a workout. When I get home late at night from the set and don't want a full meal, I'll often make a smoothie snack with coconut water, pumpkin, turmeric, oatmeal and cinnamon."
Vega One Natural Vegan Protein Powder, $70
"This is my everyday go-to. It's completely plant-based and lactose-free."
Beats By Dre Powerbeats wireless headphones, $220
"The producers of Dirty Grandpa gave me a pair of these as a gift and they are a total game changer. No more headphone wires getting caught up during my workouts!"
Apple Watch, starting at $550
"I feel so futuristic with this on my wrist!"
Clarisonic Mia 2, $149
"As someone who has suffered from problematic skin and acne since I was a teenager, the Clarisonic changed my life! It deep cleans my pores while buffing away discoloration and old acne scars."
Murad Time Release Acne Cleanser, $32
"It took me years to find what works best for me, and this product does the job."
Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Serum, $105
"The makeup artists I work with on set generally have the best skin. That's where I get my skincare secrets from. They're the ones who told me about this product, which is like the Fountain of Youth in a bottle!"
Nike internationalist id sneaker, $125
"For years I was wearing the wrong type of sneakers to work out in, and my knees are paying the price. But these are stylish, comfortable and built to run in."
