Tanning season is around the corner, and if you still don’t have the body you think you deserve, do not despair. We’ve singled out a few useful tips on how to get your smoking hot beach body ready and turn some heads along the way.
Full body peel
During the cold weather, we get so lazy that we skip some skincare rituals we would normally do when the days are sunny and warm, like applying our lotion or doing body scrubs for example. But, that’s exactly the time when we should pay more attention to our skin in order to be summer and beach ready. What we do today will affect our future looks we’ll definitely be thankful for. Therefore, it would be great to do the body peel once a month, because our skin remembers everything. It makes no difference whether you’re using the scrub you bought at the local drugstore or the one you made yourself. Peel it gently in the skin and rinse with lukewarm water afterwards. You’ll notice that, when the dead skin cells are removed, your skin gets smoother and it’s ready for further care. Removing dead cells allows evener tanning which is basically every beach babe’s dream.
After the peeling process, hydration is essential. Water cleanses, strengthens and tones our skin, and also relaxes and promotes cell renewal. The lack of water in the skin can be caused by many factors, but the most common is caused by UV radiation. By drinking enough water on a daily basis, not only do we satisfy the skin’s need for hydration, but we also allow the normal functioning of the body. However, our skin needs extra hydration from body lotions and face creams. Properly hydrated skin is soft, gentle, smooth and we look healthier and younger.
A little treatment never hurt nobody
If you think your body needs a laser treatment, dermal therapy, skin rejuvenation or even cosmetic injectables, just go for it. In Australia for instance, many women can opt for liposculpture in Perth; this treatment can help when it comes to removing fat deposits from specific areas of your body, letting you get into better shape than ever.
The orange peel battle
Cellulite is widely known as the “orange peel skin” that occurs on the hips, thighs, buttocks and tummy. No one has ever escaped from it, and even the skinniest girls have them. We’re only human right? Cellulite arises as a result of an irregular diet, insufficient movement, stress, and may also result from a hormonal disorder. But, it’s never too late to give a chance to an anticellulite massage. Anticellulite massage is solid and sometimes painful, but we all know that being pretty hurts. The aim of the massage is to break the cellulite. It is done with anti-cellulite oil in combination with different essential oils, and preparations such as cinnamon and ivy. It’s important to do 10 to 20 massages in a row every other day in order to see the results, and later it’s recommended to maintain the skin and muscle tonus by getting a massage once every 7 to 10 days.
In the bikini zone
When wearing a hot bikini, your bikini zone is also visible and it should never be neglected. Although shaving is the easiest, the fastest and the cheapest way to get rid of unwanted hair, it also has its unpleasant consequences. It can get itchy, the pimples appear and the hair returns quickly. In addition, if you have stronger and darker hair, black dots are always visible even after you are freshly shaved. The best thing to do is to go to hair removal once a month or even often depending on how quickly the hair returns. To prevent hair growth, it would be ideal to peel the bikini zone at least twice a week. To get rid of dark parts in your bikini zone, you should always hydrate your skin after showering. You can use special lotions that prevent hair growth, and make this zone less dark.
Alter your diet and start exercising
Because people are tired when you complain about those extra three pounds every season. Instead, pay attention to what you eat and forget about the cheat meals. Identify a diet that works best for you and be your own chef in the kitchen. The biggest mistake one can make is to think that it would be enough to do the training only, and the results will eventually come. But in practice, things are different. The right diet takes up at least 50% of the weight loss and body shaping process. Irregular and unhealthy meals will only affect your progress and can undo any workout. Don’t skip meals during the day, because when your calorie intake is too low, the hunger makes the body hold onto all the reserves. Learn how to eat and prepare your food in advance. Small, but more frequent portions will help you get through the day. Eliminate the foods that harm your body, like too much sugar and processed products that are full of harmful substances and unhealthy fats. Hydration is essential for the normal functioning of the body, both during and after training. So drink water whenever you remember.
Your body, your rules. Whatever piece of advice you choose, be sure you’re on the right path to becoming one hot mermaid this year.
