The No-Exercise Trick to Looking Better Naked

When we first heard about the dry brushing trend, we thought it was too good to be true. I mean, you can see why we'd be skeptical about the idea that something as simple as a soft-bristle brush could help us look better at the beach. But it turns out, apart from improving circulation and ridding the body of toxins, dry brushing really does solve some of our biggest beauty dilemmas. Painful ingrown hair? Dry brushing helps to reduce that. Need a quick tone-up before bikini season? Dry brushing will give your skin a glow while helping to firm your behind and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

"Snack mixes are ideal because you get a concentration of energy and calories," says Pace, "but they don't take up much volume in your stomach so you don't bloat." So instead of reaching for a snack-size candy bar when you're crashing at your desk midday, swap it out for one of these snack mix recipes you can make in bulk and eat all week long (just don't go too crazy with portion sizes).   read more
