If you've already booked your summer holiday, you need to make sure that you look your best. Getting beach ready in time for the hot season should be your top priority. This issue is something that loads of girls stress about for no reason. You don't need to panic. There are some simple ways you can update your look and make sure that you look fantastic in a bikini. Don't believe me? Well, take a look at my great tips and let's see if I can change your mind.
Fake your tan (just a little)
If you happen to be quite pale, you might want just a hint of a tan before you take to the beach. You don't have to overdo it and make yourself look super orange. Instead, you should get a body cream that helps you to build a tan one step at a time. For example, I know that St. Tropez make a fantastic everyday cream. If you use this cream each day, you will notice that you start to build a natural-looking colour. Be careful, though, because if you don't apply this cream evenly, you could end up with streaky lines!
Get rid of hair quickly
When it's time to hit the beach, you don't want to have to worry about shaving. If you don't want to have to shave your legs each day while you're away, you need to sort something else out. One of the easiest solutions is to use a hair removal product before you go on holiday. It may surprise you to learn that there are some systems you can use at home. So, are laser hair removal systems safe for home use? The simple answer is yes. There are some wonderful reviews online you ought to check out. If you laser off your hair before your holiday, you'll always be smooth.
Workout and tone up
If it's been a long time since you've worked out, now is the time to start once again. There are loads of simple ways you can tone up before you go away. Let's say you have two weeks until you go on holiday. That's plenty of time to make a noticeable difference to your body shape. You should try a ten-minute workout each day. (Yes, that's all it takes.) After a few days, you will notice that you are much firmer than you once were. You don't have to go crazy and start a hectic workout regime. Instead, take things easy and make simple changes to your daily routine.
Get effortlessly beautiful hair
When you take to the beach (or the pool side), you won't have time to style your hair. That is why you need to get a simple haircut before you go away. Ask your stylist for a cut that won't take too much maintenance. Soft curls are always a winning idea. You should also get a conditioning spray for your hair. If you plan on swimming all the time, the chlorine may damage your hair. After you get out the pool, rinse your hair and spray on some of the treatment. All you have to do then is leave your hair to dry for a cool (and easy) look.
Sort out low-maintenance makeup
Finally, let's talk a bit about makeup. There are some girls out there who take their entire makeup box with them on holiday. You don't need to do that. For a start, you won't have time to spend hours fixing your makeup each day. Instead, try to create a simple makeup routine that you can use each day on holiday. That way, you won't waste too much time. I hope these tips and hints help you when it comes to getting beach ready! I can't wait for my summer holidays, and I'm sure you can't either. Let me know if you use any of my ideas.
