Getting your body ready for the summer season is a common goal for many people. Whether you’re planning a beach vacation or want to feel confident in your summer attire, here are several tips that can help you achieve a toned and contoured summer body.

1. Hydrate your body

Staying hydrated is crucial for overall health and contributes to a more toned appearance. Drinking adequate water throughout the day helps improve digestion, reducing water retention and bloating for a slimmer and more defined look. Staying hydrated also promotes healthy and youthful-looking skin, especially if you’ll be sweating it out under the sun for hours.

2. Get active

Regular physical activity plays a significant role in toning your body. Aerobic exercises like swimming, cycling, jogging, or participating in group fitness classes can help burn calories, increase muscle tone, improve your cardio health, and improve overall body composition. However, aiming for a mix of cardiovascular, strength, and flexibility exercises is best to experience full-body benefits. You can also engage in exercises that target specific muscle groups to help sculpt and define specific areas.

3. Exfoliate your skin

Exfoliating your skin helps remove dead cells, improves circulation, and promotes a smoother skin texture for a youthful glow. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub or a dry brush to slough off dead skin cells, paying extra attention to areas prone to roughness or dryness. Weekly exfoliation can enhance the effectiveness of moisturisers and other skincare products, allowing them to penetrate deeper and deliver better results. However, be careful not to over-exfoliate as this could dry out or damage your skin, leading to a damaged skin barrier.

4. Remember your moisturizer

Keeping your skin well-hydrated and nourished is essential for a healthy and radiant summer glow. Choose a moisturiser that suits your skin type and apply it daily, focusing on areas of the body that tend to get dry, such as elbows, knees, and feet. Moisturisers also help maintain the skin’s elasticity and suppleness, giving it a smoother and more toned appearance. Remember to add a layer of sunscreen on the top to protect your skin from harmful UV rays, which can accelerate skin ageing and affect its overall tone and texture.

How can Body Toning Treatments help?

Professional medical aesthetic treatments can provide an extra boost when it comes to achieving optimal body toning and contouring results. Our aesthetic treatment centre in Singapore offers a range of treatments that can help you achieve your ideal summer body. This includes:

  • High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU): HIFU utilises ultrasound waves to deliver heat into your skin cells, triggering a wound-healing process that stimulates collagen production and regeneration for a lifted effect. Shiro Aesthetic Clinic offers a variety of HIFU procedures, including HIFU Toning, HIFU Trinity, and HIFU Shape, to target different areas of the face and body. Our consultants will be able to advise which treatment suits your needs best.
  • Thermage™ FLX Skin Tightening Treatment: Thermage FLX uses Mono-polar Capacitive Radiofrequency (RF) to deliver heat into the lower layers of your skin, triggering collagen formation for smoother and tighter skin tone.
  • Shiro Cryo Fat Freeze: Shiro Cryo uses cryolipolysis to target fat cells using vacuum and controlled temperature cooling. Targeted fat cells are destroyed by apoptosis before being naturally disposed of by the body’s metabolic processes. This helps to achieve a toned and compact body figure.
  • Botulinum Toxin: Also known by several brand names like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, Botulinum Toxin injections block nerve signals to your muscles, temporarily weakening them. This prevents your muscles from contracting, resulting in smoother lines and wrinkles on the target area. We offer several options for Botulinum Toxin treatment, including Jaw Slimming with B’tx and Microbotox Dermalift.
  • Venus Legacy Radiofrequency: Venus Legacy Radiofrequenc is a non-surgical alternative that uses heat to boost collagen production naturally which break down fat cells, tightens skin, smooths out cellulite to make the body look slimmer, sculpted, and toned.

Our aesthetic treatments are tailored to individual needs and can effectively achieve a more toned and contoured appearance. To explore the possibilities and determine which treatment best suits you, book a consultation with our experienced aesthetic doctors at Shiro Aesthetic Clinic.
