If there’s one thing to love about summer, it’s that it’s the perfect time to make a splash! The sun is warm, our skin is glowing, and we’re feeling all kinds of happy feelings, thanks to all that vitamin D that we’re getting. Do you want to make the most of it? Here are a few ways you can make a splash this summer:
Get New Swim Trunks
If you want to make sure you enjoy all of the invites and pool parties that summer brings us, don’t hesitate to invest in new swim trunks or bikinis. It’s the season to walk around in barely anything, so make sure you’re wearing what you want.
Owning a few pairs is always a good idea so that you’re always prepared to make a splash at any pool party event. There are so many great swimwear trends out there nowadays, so you’re bound to find all of the best looks for your body and your preferences. Flaunt what you’ve got, baby!
Hit The Gym
Because you’ll be spending time outside with relatively little clothing, if you want to feel your best, hit the gym if that’s what helps you feel comfortable in your skin.
Because people tend to drink more during the summer months, it can be helpful to burn off some of the alcohol calories and movement can also help to decrease inflammation. Don’t forget to make sure you stay hydrated with good ol’ water and lots of electrolytes, especially if you’re exercising often and spending a lot of time in the sun.
Festival season in the summer means good music, a lot of sunshine, and plenty of fun trips to be had. Make sure you shop around for tickets well in advance and as mentioned above, while you’re having fun dancing to your favorite music and enjoying all of the good vibes, stay hydrated.
Always have water with you. Hydroflask water bottles keep your water cool and are a great look for festival fun. Take a look at all of the great festivals happening and see if you can book at least one or two trips this year to enjoy them.
Get Your Tan On
If you’re blessed to get those golden hues or rich melanin in the summer months, good on you. If you need a little help with some tanning lotion or tanning beds, that’s okay, too. Make sure you’re using safe tanning products and taking care of yourself, but don’t be afraid to flaunt a beautiful sunny color during the summer months.
Protect Your Skin
However, if you do spend time sunbathing, make sure you’re using environmentally friendly sunscreen—especially on your face. It’s paramount to your future self to take care of your skin now to prevent premature aging but more importantly to stay safe from sun problems like cancers or sun damage. Enjoy the sun during the summer but try not to overdo it, so you can stay safe.
It may not be doing much right now, but too much time in the sun can have some detrimental effects down the road so while enjoying your time in the pool and outdoors, make sure you have the best hats and sunscreens available to keep you safe.
Make a splash this summer by just being you. Wear the swimwear that makes you feel good and enjoy the summertime events that make you happy. Protect your skin and flaunt that tan. Summer is a time to be enjoyed so do what you can to make the most of these months.
