HER ESSENTIALS A lazy girl’s guide to bikini bliss...


As if it isn’t hard enough to get that much desired ‘sun, sea and sand...’, hold up, even when you do, you’re body is still more sag than sizzle! Don’t panic, no gym required. Here at Flavour we’ve developed the perfect bikini plan to take you right through summer, and keep you looking and feeling fierce through winter too!


Cool calorie cheats Forget diets and fads, grab an ice lolly rather than an ice cream, and you’ve just saved yourself up to 200 calories – that’s equivalent to the calories burned on a two-mile run. We know which we prefer!


A natural nip and tuck Be smart and stylish – buy a bikini that flatters your shape, not just your idol’s. Use patterns to attract attention to your best bits and clever cuts to compliment areas you’re shy to show.


Ditch those dimples We can’t give you legs as long as Angelina Jolie’s, but we can help you make them look their most luscious. Clear that cellulite by gently brushing your skin in a circular motion with a loofah sponge or brush while showering. This helps stimulate your lymph and blood flow, as well as eliminate dead surface skin cells.


5 of the best swimwear


Hawaiian frill bandeau, Matalan, £11


Fake, don’t bake! What shows off those perfect pins more than the perfect tan? For those with lighter skin, try Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil (£16/100ml) to get a radiant, natural- looking glow. Or for that ‘just hopped off a flight from Miami’ look, try Garnier Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer Natural Dry Body Mist Medium – it’s a steal at just £7.79 from Boots.


Strike a pose You might not be going away with that guy you like, but he’s still going to see those bikini pics on Facebook! For a shot that’ll make you look sexy (and you know it), enhance or create the illusion of curves by pushing your pelvis to one side and bending your upper body to the other. Then keep your legs together, breathe in and don’t forget to smile.


Push the bloat out! It’s time to get rid of your inner cookie monster, because sugary foods like chocolate, cakes or cookies, even some fruits, will balloon your stomach. Instead, eat lots of fresh vegetables, lean protein and whole-grain carbohydrates to trim that tum but stay satisfied and healthy. Still hungry? Drink more water to flush out toxins, keep energised and feel fuller.
