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!

A little government and a little luck are necessary in life, but only a fool trusts either of them.
