Marine magic

Elemis Cellutox Active Body Oil, Dh274,
This energising body treatment promises smoother, tighter skin. With detoxifying sea-buckthorn, sea fennel, lemon and juniper, it helps to combat the build-up of toxins. Apply to problem areas after a strong, hot shower. (Not recommended for mums who are still breastfeeding.)


Pepper power

Sephora Slimming Oil, Dh69

Formulated with pink pepper and green tea extract, this oil firms and contours problem areas, while avocado oil hydrates skin to leave you feeling super soft with a slimmer silhouette.


Scrub up well

Bliss Fatgirlscrub, Dh175,
A Himalayan pink salt skin polisher, this cooling scrub sloughs off dead skin for a smooth, soft finish – allowing cellulite products to work more effectively while giving you back your glow.



Bust bonus

Sisley PhytoBuste Compound, Dh995, Paris Gallery
The contents of this bust-beautifying bottle have an intensive, firming formula rich in botanical extracts including red vine, yarrow and other essential oils to leave breasts looking and feeling firmer. Fabulous.


Sculpt your shape

Ren Body Contouring Anti-Cellulite Gel, Dh190, Harvey Nichols

When it comes to combatting cellulite, this soothing and cooling gel is just the ticket. Used day and night, the pepper rose spice and caffeine formula activates microcirculation and helps to drain fluid and toxins that swell skin and create an orange peel effect, while the red microalgae tones and reduces swelling.


The classic

Bio-Oil, Dh45, Boots

A cult classic and celebrity favourite (Candice Swanepoel, Kim Kardashian West and former Spice Girl Mel B are just a few of its fans), not only does this oil hydrate skin and even out tone, it also reduces the appearance of stretch marks with consistent use.


On your marks

Omorovicza Firming Body Oil, Dh276, Harvey Nichols
This quick-absorbing, delicate citrus-scented oil hydrates skin, firms, tones and improves elasticity. With constant use it will reduce the appearance of stretch marks and it contains no nasties.


Peel away

Clarins Body Lift Cellulite Control, Dh280

A lightweight cream for the hips, thighs and bum – this gem targets cellulite before it starts forming. It visibly smoothes, reshapes, lifts, firms and tones areas with pesky orange peel.


Perk up

Clarins Bust Beauty Firming Lotion, Dh293
A mix of vu sua extract, centella asiatica, bocoa and pomegranate, this lightweight lotion works to naturally support collagen production and tighten and refine skin around the bust area. The perfect product to get perky.


It’s a cinch

Mama mio Get Waisted, Dh235, SensAsia Urban Spas

To get that tummy back in tip-top condition, look no further than Mio’s Get Waisted. It contains seven ingredients designed to firm, tighten and fight flab, fast – trials show that after 21 days you can drop a jeans size. Sure sounds better than sit-ups to us…
