Look slimmer, instantly

Look slimmer, instantlyBeautyHeaven have found one quick way to look instantly slimmer. And they’re sharing their ultimate slimming secret…

They say the camera adds ten pounds – so obviously we steer clear of all photo-taking devices when we’re feeling a little on the heavy side, right? But did you know that there’s a simple beauty cheat’s trick that you can employ to instantly achieve a slimmer silhouette?

It’s as simple as applying a little self-tan.

Why you ask? Well the reasons are plentiful. For starters, bronzed skin is the perfect backdrop for garments that have a habit of enhancing any wobbly bits you may be worried about. Bronzed skin helps make the colour of your clothes ‘pop’ (especially if you’re wearing white), which takes the focus off those parts you’re not so keen on, and cleverly disguises any skin marks or bumpy cellulite that you desperately try to hide. It also helps to make your skin look more even-toned and less pasty, which again will help to reduce the appearance of lumps and bumps.

Go on, get your healthy glow on and improve your silhouette with this oh-so-simple slimming secret!

    This trick works… I do it all the time. Also… I make my hair blonder and it gives that “hot” effect.

    I need something that doesn’t wash off. I can’t be bothered applying it for few hours just to have it all washed off within a seconds in the same day… need something easy… and lasting…
