If you caught our swimsuit guide, then you already know that the season is near. But don’t let dressing room trials and tribulations get you down about hopping into your itty-bitty bikinis (and one-pieces). As always, the beauty industry has got your back(sides) covered with problem-solving body oils, treatments like the booty facial, and more to prep you for boardwalk season. Whether it’s paleness, lack of tone, or general residual winter body woes, these 10 products and treatments can help. Along with body-slimming practices like dry brushing, you can use them to help you feel your best and keep your fun-in-the-sun anxiety-free this summer.
1. Brooklyn Botany Anti Cellulite Massage Oil ($15): Um… yes, please! The dimple-fighting powers of this natural body oil help smooth the appearance of cellulite when you massage it into problem areas regularly.
2. Daily Concepts Detox Massage Brush ($18): This dry brush is ideal for stimulating blood flow and the body’s natural detoxification process, which can help ease the appearance of uneven skin. The practice becomes even more potent when used with a cellulite-fighting body oil like the one above.

Palermo Body Detox Body Scrub Tea Tree + Grapefruit ($48): Scrubs that stimulate the lymphatic system (AKA your body’s natural detoxification process) help give the appearance of a firm body with continued use over time.
