7 Ways to Look Thinner Without Hitting the Gym

You often wish for a magic wand to take away your flabs whenever you get ready in front of the mirror. Yeah, we get it. Though you can’t expect to look like a super model overnight, with handful of tricks, it’s really okay to expect a decent ‘slimming down’ make-over within a few hours.

Some of them are DIY (do-it-yourself) methods and for the rest a quick parlor visit is necessary. Want to know what are they?

1. Go for tactical contouring


Do you have a chubby face? Then tactical contouring can tone down the ‘pudginess’ of your face by a few notches. Invest on a contouring shade two shades darker than your normal skin tone. Run broad strokes from your cheekbone to ear-top. Dusting off the whole area delicately rounds up the contouring correctly.


2. Wear perked-Up corset

Weight training and clean eating may wait for later. But your social gathering this evening can be married, if your flab comes between you and your fabulous new dress.

For instant ‘slimming’ effect, wear an over-bust leather waist training corset or a padded push-up bra with G-string thong. After that, even if you don a potato sack, you will look like a toned up diva. It offers a lot of good waist trainers to choose from.


3. Get an effective hair-cut and highlight

We always undermine the effects of a wise haircut with right highlight. In case you have fatty cheeks, don’t go for short bob. Rather, opt for puffed-up curls that will transform your face appear smaller. Also vertical hair streaks make your facial features look leaner.


4. Tie a thin belt around waist


Not all of us are blessed with an perfect waist, not all. Tying up a thin bet around your A-line dress will give your mid-riff a definite shape. Always select a dark hue for the belt. Even if you are wearing a blazer, fastening your belt over the coat shall definitely spruce up your appearance.


5. Fake (tan) it till you make it

Are you dying to flaunt that teeny-tiny bikini on that beach party? Then spray tanning is your savior for an impromptu ‘thinning’ make-over. Contour your décolletage, waist, thighs and upper arms with bronze body spray. A top-notch tanning parlor can perfectly do the job on your behalf. But the colour of the body spray has to be few shades darker than your original complexion.


6. Strategic design is your friend

Side cuts, thigh-high slits, side panels, colour blocks are some of the strategic designs that work like black magic to cover up your love handles. But don’t try out all of them at once. First, understand your body type thoroughly, and then select the one deliberate pattern that compliments it wholly.


7. Flaunt high-waist trousers

High waist trousers have multiple benefits going for it- it cinches your waist, shrouds the jelly belly and give your stems slender look. If you are short on height and have curves on all the wrong places, then combining a pair of high-waist pants with striped shirts will definitely make you the ‘belle of the county’.

Experiment with the above recommendations to look your slender best.

Get Ready for Summer with Silky Smooth Skin

Summer isn’t too far away and it’s time for us to start getting ready to wear those revealing bikinis and shorts. You don’t want to spend your summer hiding your legs because you can’t get rid of unwanted hair or dry skin.

As women we want to look out best, head to the beach with friends and wear shorts when the sun is scorching down on us.

Hair Removal

The first step in getting the perfect summer body is to start with your hair removal system. Now you probably know that a razor and shaving cream doesn’t cut it anymore, during summer you’ll be shaving your legs daily and be left with uncomfortable shaving rash, never mind the amount of time you’ll spend in the bathroom getting your legs beach ready.

Another option is waxing, personally I find the idea of putting myself through that agony every few weeks during summer unbearable. While waxing does rip the hair out and may leave you skin hair free for a few weeks, you have to let the hair grow back to a certain length in order to wax again. This means a week or maybe two weeks of not being able to show your legs while the hair grows back, only to go through the agony again. One of the best solutions for an overall hair removal system at home is the hair laser therapy available.



Now you can buy cordless hand held devices which are easy to use and offer exceptional results, these treatments reduce the hair growth dramatically and after a few months you’ll notice your regrowth becoming lighter and finer. The hair laser treatments are clinically proven with scientific evidence which shows that if you start preparing your body for summer now, by the time summer arrives, you’ll just need to carry out the additional touch ups from time to time.



There is nothing worse than dry and peeling skin when summer comes around, you want a smooth skin that gives you the ability to wear what you want when it’s a hot day outside you don’t want to be covering up. Using moisturizer throughout the year can make a huge impact on your skin, leaving it silky smooth.

If you’re heading to the beach always wear a good sunscreen and moisturize well when you get home. Combining moisturizing and a hair removal system during the spring months can leave you with a stunning skin when summer arrives.


Hide Blemishes

During the winter months there is no sun, which means that skin blemishes are more noticeable. You need to start moisturizing your blemishes and using foundation to hide them.


Don’t worry once summer arrives and you start getting that golden glow from being in the sun, your blemishes will slowly start to disappear.


Manage Your Weight

To get a bikini body with silky smooth skin you need to start preparing during winter for the summer months.

You don’t have to start a crash diet, but a healthy and well-balanced diet will impact the health of your skin.

You’ll notice that people who eat plenty of fruit and vegetables always have a blemish and pimple free skin that seems to glow. This is because their bodies get all the healthy nutrients it needs. Now is the time to start, start with a healthy diet, moisturize on a daily basis and start your hair removal system at home.

By the time summer comes you’ll not only have silky and smooth skin that lets you wear those summer shorts, but you’ll feel better, look better and be healthier.
