Having a 'beach body' is easy – you simply take your body to the beach. You don't need to juice, fast, or go on any other crazy pre-holiday diet!
However, loads of us struggle to maintain an 'I look awesome' attitude when we're basically in our undies – a privilege usually reserved for partners and doctors – in front of a much bigger audience, to the point where it can turn a dream holibobs into a body-confidence nightmare.
This is where these clever tips come in. From confidence-boosting beauty tips to optical illusions we can ALL learn to create, these tiny tweaks can make you feel much happier about being Lycra-clad in public.
Your bikini doesn't have to be a trend-led string-side number. Before investing in your summer suit, test out a variety of different styles, sizes, cuts and materials. While you might not feel amazing in a halter neck, you could feel fab in the same print, just with some more supportive shoulder straps. Don't discount high-waisted bikinis either – if you're conscious of your tummy, they're a great halfway point between covering up completely and flashing a flirty patch of skin.
No we don't mean go and bake yourself in the sun (unless you're slathered from head-to-toe in SPF, of course). A little bit of fake bake can go a long way to boosting your confidence in the (almost) buff. A subtle tan can make your limbs appear more toned and improve the appearance of cellulite, without masking your shape, and it only takes about 10 minutes in a spray booth, or 30 in your own bathroom – win win!
Alternatively, if you're not keen on the uber-bronzed look, but still want your skin to look tip-top, exfoliation is another easy way to make yourself look fresh and glowy in a matter of minutes. Use a gentle scrub and remember to moisturise afterwards – it'll get rid of any dry patches and leave your pores looking healthy and hydrated.

BUST: Thread the tape measure under your arms, across your shoulder blades at back and around the fullest part of your bust at the front. Relax your arms at your sides while keeping the tape parallel with the floor. If this measurement falls on the ½ centimeter, round up.
WAIST: Bend to one side to find the natural indentation in your torso. This is your natural waist. Run the tape around your natural waistline, keeping the tape parallel to the floor and one finger between your body and the tape for a more comfortable fit.
HIP: Stand on a level surface with your feet together. Measure around the fullest part of your hips and bottom, keeping the tape parallel to the floor.
