Easy Ways to Look
Slimming creams may sound like snake oil, but there's nothing fake about their ingredients. Concentrated caffeine, licorice, and proteins do amazing things when delivered transdermally.
We like Rodial's Super Fit Tummy Tuck and Murad's Body Firming Cream (New Packaging) because they burn off hard-to-budge spots. There's also fan favourite, Bliss Fat Girl Slim 170.1g , which is a great budget option to re-shape body contours and smooth out the appearance of skin for that big night ahead.
Dimples should stay on your face, not your thighs. Caused by puckering in your subcutaneous fat (that's the thin layer right beneath your skin), cellulite can be tough to target. With the right products, however, you can diminish its appearance.
Start your regimen with Clarins Body Lift Cellulite Control or Shiseido Advanced Body Creator Aromatic Sculpting Gel - Anti-Cellulite . We also like Dr. Brandt Cellusculpt Body Shaper & Cellulite Smoothing Cream because the applicator comes with five steel rollerballs for some ironing-out action.
Sometimes, puffiness is just a side-effect of water retention. Get rid of the bloated look by combining a good diet with a massage or three. First, add a natural diuretic like green tea, black currants, lemon or celery to your meals. These will encourage your body to lose the extra water.
Then, stimulate circulation with Galenic Activ' Slimming Massage Kit: Glove + Slimming Shower Gel for a firmer look. We also recommend Caudalie Contouring Concentrate - a grape seed oil blend that promotes natural drainage - and Payot Le Corps Slim Ultra Performance Reshaping Anti-Water Body Oil , which effectively eliminates excess water and toxins.
For the ultimate no-fuss trick to looking thin, the magic of makeup has your back. A chiselled face makes you look instantly slimmer, and multiplies the effect of the previous three steps. First, pick a finely-milled bronzer like Giorgio Armani Sun Fabric Sheer Bronzer . Then, buff shadows into the hollows of your cheeks and along your jawline and hairline with Make Up For Ever Double Ended Sculpting Brush . This adds the depth and definition that only superfit people have, and tricks the eye into thinking you're more toned.
