With summer officially upon us, ‘tis the season for shorter hemlines, sleeveless tops and, of course, bathing suits. Odds are you could use a little help after being bundled up all winter, and a little preparation goes a long way for smooth, soft, glowing skin—and pesky problems like cellulite and stubborn bulges of fat that just won’t budge. Celebrities up their beach-body efforts this time of year, too, and these are the products and treatments they turn to before they’re photographed having fun in the sun.
With cane sugar, brown sugar, ground coffee, natural oils and very little else, this island-inspired exfoliator is almost good enough to eat. Rich in antioxidants and cellulite-smoothing caffeine, this scrub also leaves the skin supremely hydrated and silky-soft thanks to its blend of coconut, grapeseed and sweet almond oils. Apparently Kourtney Kardashian and Katie Couric are hooked — try it for yourself and you’ll see why.
La Mer is synonymous with luxury, and this decadent body moisturizer is truly a treat. Infused with the brand’s Blue Algae Lift Ferment and likened to a seaweed wrap in a jar, this rich cream provides long-lasting hydration as it improves the look and feel of skin firmness. Just ask Sofia Vergara, Helena Christensen or Carey Mulligan.
After exfoliating and hydrating, it’s time to tan the skin-safe way. Offering a variety of formulas including aerosol and non-aerosol sprays, lotion, serum, mousse and tan-extending essentials, Fake Bake is more than just a cute synonym for self-tanning — it’s also a favorite of celebs who like to go for the glow, including Ruby Rose, Olivia Culpo, Demi Lovato and Rumer Willis.
The award for best-looking razor definitely goes to MAVE, and this minimalist line offers bodycare and fragrance in addition to chic shaving. With Lea Michele as a fan, this gorgeously packaged set features everything you need for smooth, sexy skin this summer, including The Razor, Moisturizing Shave Cream, The Shave Brush (how old school!), Post-Shave Body Oil, Full Body Exfoliant and one razor cartridge to get you started.
If you have an inch to pinch, CoolSculpting may be a safe and effective way to get rid of it for good — without surgery. This office-based treatment literally freezes fat cells to permanently destroy them, and delivers visible improvement in as little as three weeks and the most significant results within three months after treatment. This Hollywood secret is officially out — and Khloe Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Molly Sims are amongst the many svelte celebs who have tried it.
