The skinny on looking slim A bronzed body hides a multitude of sins. But steer clear of the sun and don't go near a solarium. Fun in the sun . . . regular exercise can make all the difference when trying to lighten up. I f the thought of hitting the sand fills you with dread, fear not; there are ways to slim down and shape up without resorting to dreary diets or punishing workouts. Consider these five steps your fast track to a fabulous beach body. Brush up To kick-start a sluggish post-winter metabolism, try adding dry skin brushing to your beauty regime. It's best to do it daily before your morning shower. Using a soft- bristle brush, massage over the entire body in circular movements working away from the heart. Banish orange peel Swap your usual body moisturiser for a shaping product designed to shift that cellulite and give you a more streamlined shape. Elixia Body Shaper Cellulite Contour Creme comes turbo-charged with fat-busting peptides and stimulating caffeine, which has a slimming effect. It also contains green tea extracts to aid detoxification and soothing aloe vera to repair the skin and get it glowing. Apply twice daily to the target areas. It claims to create a visibly thinner appearance after a month's use. Body buff A professional treatment such as the Ultra Body Buff at Polished Beauty Bar in Woollahra will also help get your body back on track. Combining deep exfoliation with lymphatic drainage massage and a luxurious vitamin A mask, it will remove dead skin cells, banish any nasty bloating and leave your body supple and glowing. It's priced at $125 for 45 minutes. See polishedbeautybar.com.au. Shape up There's no getting around the fact that slimming products and diet can only do so much. To shift those extra kilos and create a contoured beach-worthy body, you need to exercise. That said, you can incorporate easy exercises such as squats -- which work every single muscle in the body -- into your daily routine; do a few while cooking dinner or watching TV. Or heed the advice of Gwyneth Paltrow's trainer Tracy Anderson and train for one hour a day, six days a week for the rest of your life. For a killer A-list body, Anderson says to do 30 minutes of cardio training (dancing, jogging, aerobics) and 30 minutes of weights and stretches. Glistening glow Fact: a bronzed body hides a multitude of sins. But steer clear of the sun, don't go near a solarium and opt for a professional spray tan. These days the spray tanning options include everything from a one-hour drying tan to organic varieties, in every shade imaginable. Look to brands such as St. Tropez and Fake Bake. Or try TechnoTan at Salon X in Paddington, where sprays are administered in gorgeous glass booths. NSJ SPECIAL REPORT
