5 Hacks to Look Better in Your Swimsuit


Bikini season has arrived. Which is great news if you’ve been working on that summer body all winter long. Not so great if you’ve been living on white carbs and chocolate…

Thankfully, there are a few small but effective tricks that’ll help you look much better on the beach. So, don’t hide away inside. Read on, and get ready to show off your best ASSets!

Be bold

So much of looking great at the beach or pool lies in making the right swimsuit choice! While basic black is always slimming, it can also be a bit of a snore. Large, tropical prints are a fun and flattering option, distracting the eye from problem areas. Clever color blocked swimsuits can also create an optical illusion and shave a few inches off the silhouette. And graphic patterns are also super-hot this season, including vertical stripes that elongate and slim the body.

Opt for ruching

The BFF of love handles or a little pot belly? Ruching. Ruching is fashion trickery at its best, shrinking the silhouette before your eyes. Alternatively, if you want to add some curves to a straight-up-and-down figure, opt for strategically placed ruffles.

Drink up to de-bloat

No, we’re not talking about hitting up the pool bar. For a flat belly, you’ll need to avoid fizzy drinks, lay off the beer and sugary cocktails. Instead, summer is the perfect time to flush out your body with a healthy teatox!

SkinnyMint 28 Day Ultimate Teatox contains two tasty, all-natural blends. Morning Boost is the energising, fruity tasting AM tea, made with green tea, dandelion, guarana and yerba mate. Consumed every second night, Night Cleanse kick-starts the body’s cleansing process with soothing and detoxifying ingredients including ginger root, senna leaves, lemongrass and psyllium husk.

The teas are a delicious and simple way to manage cravings and turn over a new leaf for summer. And, according to the latest survey, a huge 91% of customers felt less bloated after their SkinnyMint teatox!

Perfect your posture

A healthy diet and plenty of exercise will help you drop pounds in the long run, but good posture is also a great quick fix. Standing or sitting tall, with your core engaged, really does visibly slim the bod! Not sure if you’re getting it right? Stand with your back to the wall, with the back of your head, shoulders and heels all touching the wall. Picture your head being pulled upwards by a string. Now, try to maintain this position once you leave the wall. Not only will you look slimmer, you’ll radiate bikini body confidence!

Snack smart

To be your best self on the sand, you need to snack more – yes, really! But you also need to snack smart. This means salty, processed and sugary treats – prime bloating culprits – are out.

Instead, try controlling hunger and sweet cravings with sugar-free SkinnyMint Super Fat Burning Gummies. The Power Up morning gummy has a yummy espresso flavor, and contains green coffee bean – shown to boost resting metabolic rate, drive weight loss, and reduce fat absorption.* Designed to banish those afternoon hunger pangs, the Hunger Buster gummy has a delish pineapple flavor, and contains Garcinia Cambogia – known to help drive weight loss and fat loss.*
