As we slowly make our way into spring, the thought of preparing for the hotter months is well and truly in the forefront of our minds. Summer is a wonderful time of year when we hopefully look forward to holidays with friends and family, but before we do so, there are a number of things we can do to ensure these warmer months are even more enjoyable and stress-free. Below is a list of 5 simple things to think about before the sun makes an appearance.
Find the perfect swimsuit for your body type
Feeling confident and comfortable around the pool or at the beach can be achieved by finding the perfect swimsuit for your individual body type. If you’re buying online and looking to for a more custom option when it comes to the perfect fit, then FELLA bikinis offer an excellent custom tailoring service.
There are some simple rules to follow when finding a swimsuit to flatter your body type, for example, ladies with larger hips could choose a more interesting top that will draw the eye towards the upper part of their body.
Take care of unwanted body hair
If like the majority of women you’ve let your hair removal routine slide over the colder months, then it’s time to start fighting the fuzz once again. Having unwanted body hair over the summer period can really make trips to the beach or pool a nerve-racking experience, which is why it’s essential to get grooming ready for the hotter weather. Whether you chose to pluck, shave, wax or even book in for laser hair removal any of these methods are sure to save you the embarrassment of stray hairs ruining your summer look.
Start a bloat-free diet
Nobody wants to look or feel bloated, especially in the summer time. Bloating can easily avoided by simply cutting out certain foods such as anything that has been artificially sweetened. It’s also a good idea to cut out food and drinks that contain lots of sodium, as this can lead to your body retaining water and looking distended.
Exfoliate and moisturize thoroughly
Ensuring that your skin is free of any dead skin cells and properly hydrated throughout the summer is really important. As we often apply more products such as sunscreen or fake tan during the summer, we need to make sure that these are thoroughly removed, and that your skin is replenished and kept healthy.
There are many benefits of skin exfoliation and moisturising, especially when it comes to getting that all-important summer glow. When considering products for exfoliation and moisturising, choose different products for use on your face, as this skin often has different needs to that of the rest of your body.
Invest in multiple sun protection products
It’s essential to protect your skin from the harsh summer sun, and the best way to do this is to smother it in sunscreen. However, if you think that the quick and easy spray on product is going to be a one-size-fits-all solution, then think again. Some sun protection products are unsuitable for more sensitive areas like the face, or for the younger members of your family. The best way to ensure you and your family are fully protected is to invest in a wide range of sun protection products, including protective clothing, sunscreen, hats and sunglasses. When buying cosmetics, also try to stock up on products that are specifically designed for the body, face, lips and hair.
Hopefully, the above points have given you some information and inspiration for how to prepare yourself for the hotter months ahead. Planning beforehand and getting started with these simple tips now will ensure you feel healthy and happy when summer officially arrives. What’s more, these quick tips are simple enough to incorporate into your current lifestyle, so what are you waiting for?
