The best way to get toned and stay that way is to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly - we all know that - but sometimes getting to the gym isn’t as easy as we would like, and sometimes we want to look our best for an important upcoming event which means that we won’t have quite enough time to tone our bodies up through hard work. That’s okay because there are lots of tricks that can be employed to make pretty much anyone look a little more toned. They shouldn’t take the place of diet and fitness, but they can be lifesavers when you want to look even more amazing. Check them out…


Get a More Flattering Haircut

You might not think that your hairstyle can make you look slimmer or larger than you actually are, and yes, it probably won’t make, much difference to your body, but if you want your face to look a little less rounds, a hairstyle that reaches the collarbone and which incorporates side bangs will certainly help to slim down your cheeks and give you a slightly more angular appearance.


Give Yourself a Dark Tan

Not only does a tan make your skin look a whole lot healthier and more glowing than it actually is, but if you go for a slightly darker tan, it will also help to make you look more toned. This effect will be even more impressive if you use the tan to create more muscle tone than you actually have. You can do this by exfoliating and moisturizing, then applying tan to your whole body. Once that’s done and you've washed it off, wait for around 8 hours and then apply more tan in lines around the abs area and anywhere else where you want your muscles to be more defined. You have to be careful, but it really does work.


Stand Up Straight

Okay, so it won’t have the same results as a procedure from, and it certainly isn’t a permanent solution like liposuction is, but it is really simple, free, and something that you can do at any time, so whenever you want to appear slimmer and slightly more toned, stand up as straight as you can. It’ll suck your tummy in, make you look taller and you will appear more confident too. It doesn’t get much better than that, does it?


Use Body Makeup to Contour Yourself Toned

If fake tan isn’t your thing, but you love makeup, you can do pretty much the same thing to contour your body and add more definition. You can find some good body contouring hacks at Just make sure that you perfect them before you use them for a big night out to avoid any fails.


Avoid Bloating Foods

If you’re serious about looking totally toned, then you might want to skip sodas, onions and other foods that cause gas or bloating, at least before that big event because bloat can seriously cramp your style.
