JJ Virgin: Ready to bare those arms? Check out my quick tips.

Of course, the right exercise is crucial for shaping slim and sexy arms. But that's only one part of my integrated program for creating the arms (and body) of your dreams. Your arms must also look moisturized, tanned and glowing. I'm sharing three of my top tips from "Six Weeks to Sleeveless and Sexy" (available on, so you can put them into action right away!

1) Exfoliate. After working hard to get great guns, the last thing you'll want is for them to look ashy, gray and lifeless. The key here is to exfoliate your arms in the same way you would your face. You can grab some of the granules that you use on your mug, or create an inexpensive scrub by combining Kosher salt (1/2 cup) with the juice of a fresh lemon and a teaspoon of olive oil. (Substitute sugar for salt if your skin is too sensitive.) Gently scrub away all the dead skin cells, which will get your blood flowing and allow moisture to penetrate better. Remember to give your elbows an extra scrub to get rid of any tougher cells that are lingering. Rinse when you're done.

2) Moisturize.Remember that the secret to younger-looking skin on any part of your body is moisture. Find a good body lotion that's a bit thicker than what you use on your face. I love Bioelement's Vitalization Rich Body Creme. Slather it on your arms twice a day. Do this just after you get out of the shower or the bath, because the product penetrates twice as much into moist skin.

3) Get glowing. Tanned arms are gorgeous, but I don't want you baking in the sun. A little daily sun is actually great to boost your Vitamin D levels naturally (20 minutes is ideal), but then you can fake-tan the rest of the way by using LORAC's TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer. This will give your arms a subtle, chic glow that's not too much.

Now, go show 'em off!

This post was very well written, and it also contains many useful facts. I enjoyed your distinguished way of writing the post. You have made it very easy for me to understand. just stepped out of a Terminator movie, with a Bluetooth cellphone headset clipped to the ear, and talking into thin air, pretending it is the most natural thing in the world, not to mention ultrachic; perhaps they don’t realize that they look like those early adopter cell phone enthusiasts from all those years ago.

Women in general usually are not trying to drop enormous amounts of pounds generally. Most of the men and women using phen375 are only looking to lose 5 in order to Twenty five weight on average and also typically the stomach fat. The majority are wholesome, go to the gym kind folks. They just have not been in a position to shed body fat on the stomach or have reached any Plato. Abdominal fat issues usually start to occur for women around the time regarding or after giving birth as well as afterwards in age group pre and post menopause.
