“A fake tan brings out muscle definition so you instantly look more toned,” says L.A. tanning specialist Jimmy Coco, who bronzes Kim Kardashian. To define abs with a dab of tanning lotion, trace a line from sternum to belly button and diagonally along the obliques. Bronzing gives a polish touch to the body and gives definition to the curves.
2.CHEW SOME JUICY FRUIT
Melons are the perfect hot-weather food as they hydrate without bloating and fill you up without putting you in a food coma. Limit as much artificial sweeteners as possible, even in diet soda—they can cause temporary belly expansion, as do vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and beans.
3.ELIMINATE UNWANTED HAIR FOR GOOD
Ready to toss your razor or epilators? Get your skin waxed completely for a smooth and sexy look. There are times when you may forget to get a bikini wax done but hold on! That’s the most crucial one.
4.DOWNLOAD AN APP
Dieters who track their progress using mobile apps drop more pounds than those who keep paper logs. Being aware of exactly what you eat is one of the quickest ways to change your body. The Weight Watchers mobile app also lets you download recipes, including faves from spokeswoman Jennifer Hudson.
5.BOLSTER YOUR BLOCK
Summer skin needs more than a slathering of SPF to keep it protected. To prevent free-radical damage, it’s critical to apply an antioxidant face cream under your sunscreen. Make sure you carry it always.
6.GET HARD ON NAILS
A protein-packed strengthener prevents nails from splitting and cracking—and can make a manicure last days longer. Every time you go for a swim or wash your hands, you strip fortifying oils from your nails, these strengtheners create a sheet and protect the nails from look bad.
7.MOISTURIZE AT NIGHT
Use coconut oil on your body at night. It will help soothe and hydrate the skin if you’ve stayed in the sun too long.
8.BLOT, BLOT, BLOT
Blotting papers are great to remove the oils from your face and give you the feel of freshly washed skin during the day.
9.USE SUNSCREEN ON YOUR HAIR
Don’t forget to protect your tresses from the summer sun! Every time you apply sunscreen, give your hair a spritz as well.
10.STAND UP STRAIGHT!
Have Confidence on yourself. The Key is to look and feel stunning. A good posture will make you look incredibly beautiful.
