Getting into that bikini and cooling off in this summer heat sure does sound exciting, however don’t rush things, especially hair removal. Whether you prefer waxing or shaving be gentle and take time to get rid of all the hair. This will ensure you don’t end up with razor cuts or wax burns which can ruin your flawless bikini bod plan.

Sure you scrub your face twice every week but how often do you exfoliate your body? Exfoliating is the key to super smooth and soft skin. So if you want to flaunt your silky smooth and clear skin exfoliate your arms, legs and stomach to make it really glow and shine.

Shrink cellulite

Of course you have a lot of filters and apps to hide those dimples on your skin but how about reducing its appearance? Other than strengthening your butt and thigh muscles with squats and lunges, you can massage the area with a coffee scrub. The St. Ives Energizing Coconut & Coffee Scrub stimulates blood flow and has a tightening effect on the skin, thereby reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Don’t forget your feet
