Audrina Patridge is famous for her reality shows (The Hills, Audrina), her stint on Dancing With the Stars, her crazy mom and her bikini bod. In this month's Shape magazine, Patridge, 26, shares her top tips for looking hot in a bikini.

"I don't even think twice about wearing a swimsuit because it's always been a part of my lifestyle," she tells 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 says to find a swimsuit that fits your frame and try wearing it around the house for a couple of days until you feel comfortable in it. "Or get support and advice from some of your friends by inviting them over for a private girls-only party in the backyard," she says.

She says that she makes it a priority to tone up her bod (runs or hikes once a day, does squats and sit-ups), but says that she uses Hawaiian Tropic Oil over her sunscreen. "It keeps skin soft and accentuates your muscles," she says. "But you have to be careful not to use too much or you could end up looking greasy!" She also gets her tan from a can -- using sunless tanners to get her golden glow.

Love her tousled hair? She confesses her beachy waves are easy to get! She only washes her hair twice a week, uses dry shampoo on the roots and Moroccan Oil on the ends. "It smells really wonderful and I have less breakage when I comb my hair."
