Beauty Tip By Jennifer Lawrence: Epsom Salts Before Red Carpet

Gotta love actress Jennifer Lawrence. She's certainly not shy about speaking her mind. And this time, the pretty star is sharing her beauty tip for looking super slender on the red carpet. It's a cheap, quick fix that can help anyone squeeeze into a tight-fitting dress before an important event:

Epsom salts.

It gets rid of the bloat in an instant. Okay, so it's only temporary, but still a good beauty tip. Plus, it's so inexpensive. We found a 4 lb. carton at CVS for just $4.59!
No, Jennifer Lawrence doesn't look like she needs to drop any lbs., but she swears by a hot bath in Epsom salts.
Her personal trainer,  Dalton Wong,  actually gave her the beauty tip:
"Epsom Salts help to get rid of any bloating in the body before slipping into a red carpet dress," he says. "It’s a great trick that anyone can use if they’re working up to wearing a particularly clingy dress."
Hmmm. We never knew that, but the bath salts DO make sense. Epsom salts contain magnesium sulfate which helps detox and release trapped fats. But it's basically water weight that you're losing. Still, a lot of athletes who are in competition trying to get down a few pounds before the weigh-in , often take Epsom salt baths.
The other big plus we found in researching this instant weight loss technique is the effect it has on dimpled fat.

Bathing in Epsom salts reduces the appearance of cellulite by possibly stimulating the lymphatic system to  encourage toxin release.

Next time you're trying to squeeze into a curve-fitting ensemble, try a 10 minute Epsom salts bath. You have nothing to lose but a few unwanted pounds for the night.
