London: Supermodel Elle Macpherson says that her secret to looking great is cutting out carbohydrates and sugar.
The 47-year-old supermodel, who is currently fronting the new series of `Britain`s Next Top Model`, says the best way to lose weight is to cut out stodgy food, while ex-foliating the skin can also help people to shed the pounds, a magazine reported.
"I cut out bread, sugar and pasta - that`s the best way to lose weight. The most important thing is to prepare the skin, so scrub, scrub, scrub. I scrub my skin and then moisturise. I believe that ex-foliating is important for detoxing, circulation and weight loss. I scrub every day," Macpherson said.
The Australian beauty, who was discovered when she was just 17, advised women need to think about their body shape when shopping for swimming costumes and bikinis.
"When we carry a little bit more weight, a smaller bathing suit looks better. For those who are slim, choose a larger one. If you`re well-endowed, finding swimwear to suit your body is a really personal thing. If you have bigger breasts and bottom, try `50s-style bathing suits - they`re great for Marilyn Monroe shapes," Macpherson said.
