Audrina Patridge's Advice for Bikini Boldness

Audrina Patridge is in a bikini just about every day of the week, and it’s all because of one trait: confidence. “I don’t even think twice about wearing a swimsuit because it’s always been a part of my lifestyle,” she shares in the July issue of SHAPE. “But I have girlfriends who are so afraid to show their bodies, they won’t take off their towels at the beach or pool. It’s a shame because everyone can look good in a suit.” Patridge, who started swimming at age 4, credits her bikini-ready body to lots of outdoor activities — biking, beach volleyball and hiking or running with her pup Lady — plus an intense exercise routine, outlined on SHAPE.com. But you don’t have to work out as hard as she does to work a two-piece. Patridge first recommends choosing a bathing suit that flatters your own figure. “So many women will buy one they see a celebrity wearing, thinking it’ll look good on them too,” she says. “Be open-minded. Even if you think you know what works on your body, you may be really surprised by the results.” To get her beach-girl glow, the Audrina star uses self-tanner, and is always sure to protect her skin with sunscreen. She keeps her hair summery year-round, too, by washing it only twice per week and using dry shampoo on the days in between. To fix flyaways, she rubs Moroccan Oil onto her ends. “It smells really wonderful,” she says, “and I have less breakage when I comb my hair.” And to give her body a little boost, she does a quick series of squats and sit-ups before hitting the beach. “I like to get the blood flowing to those areas,” she explains. “I feel tighter and stronger, and it gives my skin a nice rosy glow.”

None are particularly tatlneed or fascinating human beings. I like Kristin for her spunk and her attitude. LC has been the most successful in terms of her career , she just got another book publishing deal and making the most money, however she was a pushover on Laguna Beach and being used by Steven for years. LC always putting on the Miss Innocent act is annoying. Audrina is the most fit and in shape but she is annoying too (the way she talks) and being a doormat with that guy Justin Bobby. I don’t really like any of them but I like their style and their lifestyle .
