Last Minute Body Preparation for Your Summer Vacation
The sun is up, your vacation days are just about to begin, but you still haven’t prepared your body for a lot of sunbathing and skin exposure? Don’t be alarmed, there’s enough time for everything. What you need most is to relax and stay calm in order to make a plan of action. There are a few things you should consider, and we’re here to help you make this list and also make your holiday preparation period a lot easier. Follow these simple steps and you will have your body beach ready in no time.
Make changes to your diet
Even if your vacation is only a couple of days away, it’s not too late to change your diet and see the effects of dietary changes. There are some tricks that can help you see results almost instantly, or at least by the end of the day. One of the most common problems that interfere with your ideal beach body figure is belly swelling, and this problem is often caused by a few ingredients. If you try avoiding sugar and flour for just a couple of days, you will most certainly see some results. You should also avoid eating after 8pm and going to bed after midnight. If you combine all of this by sleeping for around 8 hours for a couple of nights, your beach body will come to you one day without you even realizing it.
Remove all excess hair from your body
Hair removal is one of the most annoying parts of the summer for most women, which is why taking care of your excess hair before going on holiday is crucial for you to be able to truly relax and enjoy your time off. If you think shaving your legs every day will be easier than scheduling hair removal at the salon, you’re very much mistaken. Even classical long-lasting hair removal procedures such as waxing and tweezing leave you with soft skin for only a couple of days. The best way to take care of your unwanted hair is to get rid of it for good, and women in Australia are doing so by investing in reliable laser hair removal in Perth. This technique is completely painless and it’s an ideal treatment for large hair-covered areas, such as legs and back. It’s also important to consider that there are different types of procedures suitable for various types of skin, so make sure your provider knows which skin type you have before undergoing any procedure.
Peel off dead skin cells
If you haven’t done your exfoliation regularly, then you most certainly have excess dead skin at least on some areas of your body (such as heels and elbows). This is nothing that a good skin treatment can’t handle. Once you’ve done your mani and pedi, it’s time to take care of that infamous orange peel skin that occurs mostly on hips, thighs and buttocks. Cellulite is a curse even the skinniest of girls can bare, and it’s a tough one due to it being fairly resistant to treatment. It’s hard to avoid the creation of cellulite since it forms as a result of stress, irregular diet, insufficient exercise, hormonal disorder, or basically anything else you can think of. Luckily, there are anti-cellulite massages that can be very effective, but only if you are stubborn and persistent enough. This slightly painful massage is done with a mixture of essential oils and preparations, and it needs to be repeated 10 to 20 times every other day. We know this is awfully difficult to achieve, but no one said beauty comes easy.
Avoid getting sunburn
Before you pack anything else, make sure that you have enough sun protection that has at least a 30 SPF or higher. Once you get melanin out of its winter sleep, you can enjoy sunbathing with a lower SPF, but until you get that first layer of tan, you should be careful when going out in the sun. There are not many things more harmful to your skin than sunburn, and this is because your skin cells have a good memory. Once an area of the skin gets burned, those skin cells will recover, but not with the same quality. Often sunburns can cause your skin to prematurely age and in more severe cases they even cause cancer. So, pack plenty of sunscreen in order to get the most out of your tanning experience.
Don’t forget to choose the right bathing suit, because your beach body will be only as good as the swimsuit you choose. Find the one that flatters your figure most, and if you follow all the steps above, you are on the right path to achieving your ideal beach body.
