Summer means bikini body season
For many women, however, this declaration can lead to mass panic, as the inevitable bikini unveiling will reveal evidence of too many chocolates, ice cream and other delicious but unhealthy treats.
However, fear not...you can look and feel good in your bikini, no matter what your age! You can get your bikini body ready for beach trips, pool parties and weekend outings. It's all just a matter of a few little tricks we've compiled...
Let's get going! Grab your trainers or your yoga mat, and throw your-all in to a good workout. Not only will it help tone things up here and there and build up your overall fitness, it'll help you to feel more confident in yourself and your body when your bikini comes out to say hello.
Love your body
Love yourself and the skin you're in, no matter what size or shape you are. Don't compare yourself to celebrities, or magazine models, or that Instagram feed where the women always looks so unbelievably perfect. Focus on you, and what you love about yourself.
"Omg!!! Used Embalm Invigorating Body Scrub for the first time today and boy am I impressed. 100% natural and a 100% happy with my results. Completely smooth and nourished skin in a matter of minutes! Definitely recommend to anyone wanting clear, smooth, soft, hydrated skin. Life saver on my legs after I’ve shaved too – no bumps and I feel like my legs will stay smoother for longer – bring on summer!!" Thanks for the great review, Micha! . . . Photo by @diyshelley
As well as dry brushing, exfoliating works wonders for your bikini body. Our Invigorating Body Scrub will sweet talk even the driest skin into submission, leaving your skin bikini and beach ready!
Apply to the hands, feet and body, and soak up the nourishment of potent antioxidants as dead skin cells are gently sloughed away. It's your perfect partner in crime this Summer as it smoothes the skin surface for even tanning and self-tanning products. Grab yours here.
Eat good food
Make sure that you're eating food that your body needs. Take a look at your diet and eliminate things in it that are really a no-no when it comes to getting summer-ready (chocolate, cake and so on). Essential fats for example, keep your skin refined and looking good. Include foods in your diet like avocados, nut butters and olive oil to get some essential fats.
Save your skin from dehydration and dryness over the summer months, by making sure you're drinking plenty of water. If you're not replacing water lost through sweat with some good old H2O, your skin will be rough and tight, and can peel and sometimes bleed if it cracks. Add more water to the mix, and your skin - and bikini body - will love you for it.
Your skin can get quite flaky over the hotter months, which isn't ideal, especially when you want to look your best. You can remove the dead skin cells and improve your circulation by using a body brush before you get in the shower.
Our Smoothing Exfoliating Mitt helps combat the appearance of cellulite, leaving you with smoother, healthier skin. It also helps even skin tone and prevents dullness, giving your skin a beautiful, soft glow! How are you preparing your skin for beach season this summer?
