Summer is coming and with it the threat of having to don a swimsuit. Make the process a little less stressful by prepping with the latest hi-tech anti-cellulite and slimming products.

1 Biotherm's Celluli Laser intensive night cream (HK$300/200ml) works in synchrony with the body's natural rhythm - we store fat five times faster at night than we do during the day. The brand is running a promotion whereby if you spend HK$400 or more on Biotherm slimming products, you get a free body roller (normally HK$350).

2 Stendhal's Hydro Harmony crisp slimming foam (HK$420/75ml) contains caffeine, captinine H and detoxinase to moisturise, eliminate impurities and reduce the accumulation of fatty clusters and cellulite zones. Apply in the morning and evening and enjoy its floral scent in the process.

3 Natura Bisse's C+C vitamin body cream (HK$900/250ml) is an intensive firming product for those who like luxury elements combined with practical use. Orange extract and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate work to firm flabby bits with a fresh citrus zing.

4 Fresh's Sugar Acai age-delay body cream (HK$780/200ml) uses the power of a 'super berry' from the Brazilian Amazon rainforest, called acai, which is packed with essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. The product also contains citrus-fruit acids to firm, maintain skin elasticity and reduce water loss. The cream is scented with bergamot, caramel and the exotic undertones of the acai berry.
