10 tips to a gorgeous beach-body


Don’t wait until the last minute to get beach ready, start now with these 10 easy ways to look your best in your bikini this summer.

4 cosmetic cossies

Picking the right swimsuit for your body is rule numero uno. Editor Annabel Jones says it’s all about highlighting your best assets:

  • Best for mummy tummies: ‘I love a one piece with cut-out sides, because it hides a less-than-perfect stomach whilst still showing some skin. Go for one with an open back to show off your curves.’
  • Best for a small chest: ‘choose a style with ruffles, ruching or padding on top. Embellishment creates the illusion of a fuller shape. Then go for a simple string bottom or bikini brief.’
  • Best for a full bottom: ‘Draw the illusion upwards by opting for a cleavage enhancing push up bikini top, opting for a fashionable high-waisted pant on the bottom.’ 
  • Best for a boyish figure: ‘If you’re naturally straight up and down, opt for a one-piece with dark side panels which gives the illusion of a curvy waist.’ 

Gillette women’s shave gel

3 smooth skin tips

Picking the right swimsuit for your body is rule numero uno. Editor Annabel Jones says it’s all about highlighting your best assets:

  • Exfoliate dry: ‘I always tell my celebrity clients to make sure they exfoliate with a dry towel before epilating. This makes the hairs stand up making it easier to ensure a perfectly smooth finish,’ explains Nathalie Eleni.
  • Use a shave gel: ‘A creamy shave gel creates a protective cushion that prevents dragging so your razor glides easily over skin’ We recommend: Gillette Satin Care Pure & Delicate Shave Gel RRP £3.49.

The super ingredient your skin needs: ‘When it comes to moisturising your body, go for products with Kokum butter, which is a botanical butter from the same family as cocoa and shea-butter. All three of these botanical butters melt at body temperature and are absorbed rapidly into the skin to keep it moisturised and healthy.’

3 hair removal hints by Braun ambassador and celebrity therapist Nathalie Eleni

  • Still bending your knees to shave? ‘I love a one piece with cut-out sides, because it hides a less-than-perfect stomach whilst still showing some skin. Go for one with an open back to show off your curves.’
  • Best for a small chest: ‘Streamline your body by stretching your knees out in front of you for a perfectly even finish.’
  • Soften hair in warm water: ‘When shaving the bikini area, always soak the skin in warm water first - if it’s too hot you can sensitise the skin. Then opt for a razor with a lubricating strip and use a shave gel, reapplying in between strokes if necessary.’  ’ We recommend: Gillette Venus Pro Skin Sensitive RRP £3.49.
  • Trim before shaving: ‘For professional-look results always trim bikini hairs before you shave. But not with scissors – the Venus Bikini Trimmer RRP £5.99 is a safe and effective as a special comb provides a protective layer between the skin and blade.’

My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
