Sure, liposuction can reduce any mushy flab that droops down around the hips and tush—but for an easier (and much more affordable option), consider a DIY guarana body mask. “The Brazilian fruit contains four times the amount of caffeine as coffee and draws excess water out of fat cells so skin appears tighter,” explains New York City dermatologist Debra Jaliman, M.D. In one study, women who applied guarana to the area twice a day reported a 41% increase in skin firmness on the tush and 35% around the hips within 12 weeks—but Dr. Jaliman notes that it’s possible to see results even sooner than that. And when skin is firmer, the butt and hips appear more lifted and youthful for an overall fabulous appearance!
In a bowl, combine 3 Tbs. of guarana
TO DO: powder (like Mountain Rose Herbs Guarana Seed Powder, MountainRoseHerbs.com) with 2 Tbs. of water and 4 drops of avocado oil (its vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids boost collagen production for tauter skin). Apply to the hips and butt; let sit 15 minutes, then rinse. Repeat three times a week for a firmer rear view and trimmer hips within one month.
