We’ve all heard the saying ‘curves in all the right places’ – usually, this means a smaller waist, wider hips, and a general hourglass figure. Many women believe that since they were not born with an hourglass figure, they’ll never be able to have one. This is not true! You can actually reduce the lumps and bumps you don’t like, and enhance the curves you do. Here’s how!
Get Into The Habit Of Body Brushing
Body brushing is a wonderful habit that can have numerous benefits if you’re consistent with it. It’s a form of exfoliation, so it gently gets rid of dead skin cells and leaves your skin glowing. Not only that, it can help to smooth out any lumps and bumps you may have, especially in the legs. It will also help to flush out toxins and improve circulation as you brush towards the heart and your lymph nodes. Your skin will look and feel amazing as you smooth it out and keep it healthy!
One of the only true ways you can begin to give your body a more hourglass shape, is exercise. What you do will depend on where you’re at now. If you have a straight up and down body type, using weights in your workout can help you to create the curves you desire. If you hold on to fat, lifting weights while doing a reasonable amount of cardio will help you to create more definition in your body as you lean out. Bear in mind that it’s consistency that works best with exercise, so it may take months and months to see the results you want. You can’t rush! Make sure you take your measurements so you can accurately track your progress.
Bear in mind that there are so many other great reasons to exercise. You should feel great about yourself, and it’s another wonderful way to reduce any cellulite (AKA those annoying bumpy bits) you may find on your skin.

Focus On Eating A Diet Full Of Nutrients
Unfortunately, you won’t create a gorgeous, healthy figure if you’re not eating the right foods. Some people are just lucky, and no matter what they eat they look great. Most people have to work for it. You can definitely enjoy a treat once or twice a week, but you shouldn’t go overboard. The majority of your food choices should be full of nutrients and goodness, with plenty of vegetables and healthy proteins included! You should notice the difference in both your body and mind when you eat healthier foods.
If you want to create more of an hourglass figure and get rid of those bumpy bits for good, you need to be determined and consistent. Get into good routines with your skin regime, exercise, and food and you will begin to see results.
