While many people are anxiously awaiting the start of summer, others have mixed feelings as it means the start of swimsuit season. Lying on the beach or in the backyard soaking up the sun is fabulous, as is swimming, but not everyone feels confident when they don their bathing suit.
If this sounds familiar and you want to head into summer with a fresh attitude, then these tips will be perfect. Here are five essential beauty tips that will ensure you look and feel great in your swimwear this summer.
Get That Bronzed Glow
One of the first steps should be to get that beautiful summer bronze glow. Once your skin has a healthy color to it, you may start to feel more confident as it does a great job at camouflaging any problem areas. This doesn’t mean you need to lay out in the sun for hours to achieve a glow. Instead, you can use self-tanners at home or go get a professional spray tan for instant results.
Boost Your Water Intake
Drinking water may not seem like the solution to summer swimwear confidence, but when you’re properly hydrated, your whole body benefits. Your skin will feel softer and appear plumper, and it can help prevent you from retaining water. It also improves skin elasticity meaning fine lines and sagging skin aren’t as noticeable, and it can even help you to lose weight.
It’s Never Too Late To Start Being Active
Maybe you’ve never been the active type or the person who joins the gym. Well, it’s never too late to change. Aiming for 30 minutes of continuous exercise at leave five days a week will help you to tone up and become more fit, which means you’ll feel that much more confident in your swimsuit. If you add weights into your routine, then you’ll also start to build muscle.
You can start with activities that don’t feel intimidating to you such as walking, hiking, or cycling, and then build up in intensity.
Choose Swimwear That Flatters Your Body Shape And Type
Often people get caught up in what’s trending in fashion when shopping for new pieces and forget that it still needs to flatter their body type and shape. This is particularly true with swimwear, as it should be about choosing items that make you feel confident, are comfortable, flatter your body and still have a style to them.
You can shop Tribal Fashion’s new swimwear collection to get an idea of what’s hot right now and then base your selection on what works for you.
Exfoliate And Moisturize All Summer Long
The final tip is to make sure you give your skin lots of love all summer long. The heat, sun, and swimming (especially in chlorinated pools) can be very drying to your skin. Make sure you use a gentle body exfoliator weekly and that you moisturize daily. When choosing a body lotion ideal for summer be sure it’s lightweight, non-sticky, or greasy, absorbs quickly, and can soothe and moisturize deeply. Using these tips will ensure that you head into summer with a positive outlook and look great and feel confident in your swimwear.
