It’s natural for us women to store fat around our, hips, waist, thighs and bum. Unfortunately this makes it harder to slim down these areas. The best products to choose are the ones that will give you a fat-burning cardiovascular workout (getting your heart pumping and lungs working), like skipping, hula hooping or aerobics.
