Would you like to look a little slimmer and feel more confident in your favorite pair of jeans this fall? There are plenty of simple ways to slim down without losing weight. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Add Strength Training To Your Workout
Exercises that build your strength and tone your muscles may not result in weight loss, but they can improve your whole body and leave you looking better. Many people who add strength training to their exercise routine find that even when they don’t lose pounds, they lose inches off their waist, thighs, and upper arms. Lift weights if you enjoy that. If you want to build muscle and tone at home without equipment, try yoga or Pilates.
Change Your Clothes
Flattering clothing will make you look longer and leaner while the wrong clothes will accentuate the things you’d like to downplay.
- Invest in a new bra that fits correctly—get professionally measured to be sure you choose the right size. Many women unknowingly wear the wrong size of bra, giving up the support they need. Wearing a bra that correctly lifts and supports your breasts will make your waist look slimmer.
- Create one long lean line by wearing a monochrome outfit. That way nothing breaks your body up into smaller, wider sections.
- Wear clothes that are fitted to your body. Don’t try to hide your curves with baggy clothing—this only makes you look bigger. Instead, invest in shapewear, wear clothes that fit you well, and if you want to cover things up, use a crisp blazer.
Consider Cheek Reduction
While you can make your cheeks look less prominent with the right makeup contouring, this can be a big project every day, and not everyone likes wearing a lot of makeup or looking especially done up. Sometimes even people who are very slim end up with chubby cheeks. This can make them look heavier or childish.
If you’re concerned about the size of your cheeks, schedule a consultation with Dr. Serure. He offers a cheek reduction treatment that removes excess fat from the cheeks to create a slimmer look. Incisions are made on the inside of your mouth so there won’t be any visible scars. Contact the office to learn more.
