This year is flying by, isn’t it? It’s hard to believe it’s nearly the end of February already. You might have started to notice all the spring plants beginning to emerge. Of course, with the weird weather that’s happening at the moment, many of the plants that wouldn’t be seen for a month or two yet are out already. So if it’s practically spring, that can only mean one thing. Summer is just around the corner! You might think it’s too soon to be thinking about warmer weather, but it’ll be here before you know it.
If you’ve been wrapped up in winter woolies for months, the chances are you need a little bit of beautifying. Here’s how to get your body beach-ready for summer!
Change Your Thinking
Don’t think “diet,” think healthy eating and a change of lifestyle. Quick fix diets are no good. Yeah sure, you may lose a considerable amount of weight in a short space of time. Yes, it will give you a boost, and you’ll look better in a bikini. That’s true. But you can almost guarantee that you’ll put most, if not all of it, back on in no time. Fad diets don’t last. They don’t work in the long term. The best way to lose weight and keep it off is to do it slowly. Giving your skin a chance to catch up with fat loss means you are less likely to be left with excess saggy skin when you lose weight.
If you love a tan and want a healthy glow, hopefully, you’re faking it. Exposing your skin to the sun to get a tan is so out of date! Fake tans have moved on from the smelly, streaky formulas of yesteryear. Don’t risk premature aging, sunburn or skin cancer. The best way to prepare your skin for a tan is to exfoliate, exfoliate, and exfoliate some more. Making sure you’ve got no dead skin cells sitting on the top layer of your skin will ensure an even application with no streaks or patches!
Worried about your pins out in the sunshine? So many people worry about showing off their legs in the summer. Why? Cellulite. This unsightly condition makes many women recoil in horror should someone suggest wearing shirts. Sadly, you can never get rid of it altogether, but there are many things you can do to reduce the effects and the appearance. There are lots of products on the market for reducing cellulite, but the Revitol reviews here suggest they may have some of the best skincare products around!
Best Foot Forward
After a winter tucked away in boots, are your feet ready for the summer? Hard skin, callouses, and neglected nails do not make for sweet summer feet! Think about sandals and flip flops. It may be time to run for a pedicure. Nobody wants to be embarrassed by their feet. If your tootsies need treating, now is a perfect time for a pedicure.
Toning up – think about it!
If you want to tone up before setting foot on the sand, don’t think that a whole load of crunches will fix that jelly belly. You need to exercise all of your body, not just the middle! Doing too many crunches and nothing else will shorten our middle section at the front. This can lead to problems with your posture. Swimming or running are great ways to tone up and improve your posture.
If you start now, you can be beach-ready in plenty of time for summer! You’ll be full of energy, looking good, and feeling great!
