Massage in using circular motions, working it up and down your biceps and triceps. Dedicate two minutes each morning and night to each arm to see results. We like Nip + Fab Upper Arm Fix, £12.99.
Combine a bit of self tan with some expert shading to get arms that look like you’ve been working out for months! Use a gradual tanner on your whole body for an all over glow, then taking a self tan that is one shade darker down the sides of your arms to make them appear more slimmer and toned. Use Vita Liberata pHenomenal 2-3 Self Tan in Dark, £37.50.
Using a waterproof matte bronzer like Avène Sun Care SPF 50 Tinted Compact £24, buff it in all along the paler skin on the underside of your arm, from elbow to armpit. The matte texture will absorb the light and make the area look smaller.
To accentuate your biceps, use a highlighter like Kiko Sahara Glow Highlighter in Desert Colours £14.90, and put it on the area that naturally catches the light. And Voila! You have defined arms.
