How to Loose 5 Pounds in 5 Minutes

One, let’s remember it’s important to love our selves, our bodies, and truly who we are! No one is saying to change that. However, if you’re like me and you’re running in and out of hot cities for bachelorette parties, then you have to be bikini ready at a moments notice.

I’m naturally a small girl, but like any human being, I do have an extra few pounds in some trouble areas. It’s there, it’s a part of me. Whatever. …There’s also always the stretch mark and patches of cellulite here and there as well. So, I get wanting to look your best at the beach, but make sure you do it for yourself and no one else!

Here are some of my best go-to secrets for “slimming down” in no time.

Get Your Bust Measured

Yes, I, like most women, was wearing a 34B most of my life…when I was actually a 32D. I love low-cut tanks but stopper wearing them for so long because I felt overly heavy in my under arms and chest. After finally finding my right bra size, I definitely feel and look better! Victoria’s Secret just came out with the most adorable bralettes starting at $18.

Contour All the Right Places

You’ve been told since contouring officially began trending that it can seriously sculpt your facial features. Let’s face it, make up can really work some magic. I love using The Balm’s Bahama Mama ($20) to carve out my cheeks, nose and collar bones. I love that I can slim my face and upper body in just a few swipes of this stuff.

Use a Multi-Tasking Tanner

I received the Svelta Tan ($38) with the Mitt ($7) from their PR team a few weeks ago. I’ve been trying this stuff out since, and it’s definitely a product I will repurchase when I run out. The color it gives you is so subtle that you don’t have to worry about going over board. It also claims to be firming…which I can honestly say is true! Whenever I use this stuff I can really feel a difference in the firmness of my skin, and even the appearance of my stretch marks and cellulite. The only con I have about this product is the scent–if you’re sensitive to smells it might bother you, but it disappears in about 10 minutes on me so I don’t mind it very much.

Get Your Hair Out of Your Face

Having your mane take over your face can make your face appear fuller. That’s right! To quickly loose some “weight” in my face I pick my hair up into a low bun, or a half-up-half-down style.
