Make sure you look HOT this sum­mer

Ch­eryl Cole siz­zles on stage at the Sum­mer­time Ball.

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Beauty -

Tanned, check. Toned, check. Cel­lulite, not a chance . . . When Ch­eryl Cole took to the stage for Cap­i­tal FM’s Sum­mer­time Ball, she clearly wasn’t ner­vous about flaunt­ing her killer body to an au­di­ence of thou­sands as she per­formed in a barely-there crop top and hot pants. But for most of us, step­ping out on the beach in front of a few friends can bring on an at­tack of sum­mer stage fright.

Parad­ing your­self in glar­ing sun­light wear­ing your bikini smalls is a daunt­ing prospect even for the cel­ery­munch­ing, detox-juic­ing su­per­model types amongst us.

Like it or not, the hol­i­day sea­son is al­most here mean­ing there’s no place for pasty skin and wob­bly thighs to hide.

Take heart if you’re on hol­i­day count­down, there are ways to get set for deck­side pos­ing with­out spend­ing weeks camp­ing out in the gym or sunbed par­lour.

Give your skin a head­start with prod­uct cheats that will help trans­form you from beached whale to bronzed god­dess.

Pre­pare to bare with our pre­beach beauty guide. POWER SLIM­MING Beat the bulge by cut­ting back on re­fined, pro­cessed foods and sugar in the lead-up to your vacation and give body hot spots some dis­ap­pear­ing act at­ten­tion.

Com­bin­ing slim­ming prod­ucts with tar­geted ex­er­cise on abs, glutes or thighs will tone you up in no time.

CEL­LULITE BLAST­ING Wa­ter is your best friend for flush­ing out the tox­ins, which helps to in­crease cir­cu­la­tion and ban­ish dim­ples but you’ll need to team your H2O habit with twice daily body brush­ing fol­lowed by a cel­lulite shift­ing cream to see rapid re­sults.
