10 Ways to Become Runway Ready under 7 Days ...

1. Seaweed Wraps ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

These things are amazing! Seaweed wraps reduce cellulite, tighten saggy skin, lighten stretch marks, and slim you up an inch or two all around. Although some people boast seaweed takes off ten inches on your hips or thighs, I haven't seen it. What I've seen is a great improvement in skin texture and smoothness as well as an overall slimmer, tighter look - and that's wonderful on its own!

2. Increase Your Water Intake ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Drink as much water as you can each day. Try to guzzle at least 64 ounces per day, and if you can drink more, do it. Why? Water improves your skin tone, increases your body's efficiency, and makes you less hungry. If you drink more water, your skin will be glowing in seven days, and you'll probably feel better, too.

3. Whiten Your Teeth ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

You can use in-home whitening systems or go big with a whitening session at your dentist office. I recommend the in-home kits. I've done the Zoom Whitening with the light at my dentist's office for $500, but I honestly got just as good results with Crest Whitestrips. While you're at it, give your smile a good flossing every day, too. Bright, white, shiny teeth are totally runway ready.

4. Miracle Cleanse ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Go on the 7-Day Miracle Cleanse. I went on this plan for the week before my brother's wedding, and I lost 15 pounds by the wedding! On this plan, you just drink a mixture of water, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup as a meal replacement. This is what Beyonce did before the filming of Dreamgirls, and you know Beyonce looks runway ready!

5. Cabbage Soup Diet ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If the Miracle Cleanse is too intense for you (and I'll tell you, it is intense to fast for a week), try the Cabbage Soup Diet. This diet is known all over the world for sucking the excess water weight off you, fast. I've tried this one and, while it isn't as dramatic as Miracle Cleansing, you will lose 7-10 pounds in seven days.

6. Chemical Peel ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Getting a chemical peel can dramatically change the texture and look of your face in a quick time. Chemical peels remove the outer layers of the skin, reducing wrinkles, fading skin spots, and helping clear blemishes. These are relatively pain-free and quick procedures. Just schedule your peel early in the week, because you will have redness for a few days.

7. Spray Tan ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

A spray tan is the quickest, simplest way to get beautiful bronze color fast. Spray tans have become available in salons everywhere lately, and they're easy and affordable. The technicians just spray you down with a high-quality self tanner, and bam! You're glowing! The color usually lasts 3-5 days. Be sure to exfoliate well before you spray - this gives you the most even color and makes it last.

8. Haircut and Color ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Getting a trim (or a more dramatic hair cut) and fresh color will brighten your face and give you an instant lift. Get at least one inch trimmed to remove your split ends, and consider getting one of the cute new trends in hair like bangs or an angled bob. Then, get some updated color put in - highlights, lowlights, or a root touch-up. Finish with a deep conditioning treatment for body and shine.

9. Wax ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Getting a body wax is a quick way to feel smooth and sexy. Choose a reputable salon that can handle all your waxing needs at one stop. Consider waxing all those pesky places hair grows, including legs, arms, underarms, upper lip, eyebrows, and the bikini area. Don't forget that you'll need several days of hair growth before a wax can be done. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize afterwards, and give yourself a day or two for the redness to subside.

10. Facial ...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Getting a facial will clear out your pores, help remove blemishes, and leave your face fresh and relaxed. Facials range from the simple, which is basically a mask and moisturizing session, to the intense, which includes facial pore extractions. Aim somewhere for the middle of that road- you want results, but you don't want your face to bear the scars of heavy extraction when you're trying to get runway ready in seven days. Get a good quality moisturizer as well and moisturize heavily each night before bed for seven days.

With these ten tips, you should be ready to strut your stuff on the catwalk in no time. Do you have other great ideas for getting hot in seven days? Let me know what your tips and tricks are.
