Thanks (in part) to Kim Kardashian, over the past decade having a desirably curvy and smooth bottom has become the fixation of many women the world over.
However while some will be more than willing to spend £300 plus on the increasingly popular Brazillian butt lift, or Kim Kardashian’s infamous ‘VelaShape’ cellulite-busting treatment, many of us are less inclined to such extravagant spending.
Yet fear not ladies because it is very easy to get smoother skin and a more pert-looking bottom without having to fork out a fortune.
Check out our little guide below to a very cheap and cheerful DIY bottom facial:
Body brush that butt
Dry brushing is essential for improving circulation and tackling the dreaded cellulite, and if you haven’t yet cottoned on to this beauty trick, bikini season is definitely the time to do so! Buy yourself a mitt or a bristled body brush and give your bottom a massage every morning to kick-start stimulation and encourage toxin release. Use simple upwards strokes to ensure the best results.

Shower and scrub
To improve radiance and make your bottom look ultra smooth, stick to a regime of body scrubbing twice a week with a special exfoliation product. If cellulite is your biggest problem, choose a product bursting full of essential oils as they promote drainage. For a spotty posterior, choose scrubs containing natural antiseptics which can help to cleanse the skin of sebum and bacteria.

Regularly massaging your bottom will help to promote lymphatic drainage which is hugely important for detoxification. The best time to massage is when applying moisturiser – using light and small hand movements to target the 70% of lymphatic vessels that are located just underneath the skin’s surface.

Smooth on serum
Serums are intensely moisturising and can help to enhance the elasticity of the skin on your bottom. Make sure you choose an advanced formula that comes with a special roller tool to provide ultimate skin stimulation and produce firm, smooth results in an instant.
