Two Quick Tips On How to Look Skinner

Look SkinnierAlright, HotMamas, it’s game time.  This means it’s party season – you’ll be seeing old friends, exes, the aged in-law aunt you can’t stand – you get the picture.  The last thing you want to do is look dull and dowdy.  Nope the best revenge – is looking great.  So since you can’t lose 5 pounds in two days – well perhaps you can, but you shouldn’t, we have two quick look skinny tips you can whip out at a moments notice – get ready for your hubby to start kissing you under the mistletoe.  And creepy great uncle Ed…but that’s a whole other story.

1. Wear V-Necks – Why?  The downward diamond shape will visually elongate and narrow your neckline, so that viewers won’t know where the neck stops, which will give you extra inches.  Just be sure to take care of the neck and chest area with a little TLC. Try this combo for a younger you effect:  Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Advanced Anti-Aging Body Wash, which will  improve elasticity, dryness, dullness, and the appearance of fine lines.  Follow up with an anti-aging body moisturizer such as Olay Regenerist Regenerating Body Lotion.

2. Get Thee Some Shapewear – Yes these really do work.  And you can feel like 5 pounds of potatoes in a one pound sack.  So just like with anything else, try on different sizes until you get one that fits – and doesn’t leave you with unsightly rolls hanging around.  This HotMama just bought her first pair of Spanx and I will swear by them.  I got the little slip one, but I am about to invest in the shorts or knickers from their Skinny Britches line, since I still need to suck in that post baby belly…
