We all can’t wait for summer but guys, we are slowly getting there. Slowly it is getting warmer so we just want to make sure we will all look cute so here are some tips on how to look gorgeous this summer.
Care for your body so always use sunscreen. You will still get color but will cause a lot less damage to your skin. We know it is annoying as it is often greasy and you just want to use the time tanning or do other nice things, but believe us, your body will be so thankful especially when it gets older.
During summer, most of the time your hands and feet will be bare as most of us girls do love some cute sandals, right? So, make sure they are cute to look at. You can have a pedicure done or why not try it yourself? Make sure your feet are clean and file and polish them. There are some gel alike topcoat options which don’t require an UV lamp to finish up your mani and padi and we promise you your polish will last super long. We already mentioned taking care of your body with sunscreen is extremely important, so we just want to remind you not to forget your hands and feet. Happens all the time!
Remain physically active. Exercising regularly will not only make your body look better but it will also boost your confidence. Try to work out for at least 30 minutes three times a week. In summer there are so many nice activities to do. You could meet up with some friends and play tennis, make a nice bike tour, rollerblade, maybe just go for a long walk, just hit up the gym if they are accessible, or just go for a swim in an in- or outdoor swimming pool. If you live close to the sea you are of course very lucky to enjoy a beautiful day by the beach. You could take a nice boat tour, surf, stand up paddle and so much more. Some activities are even possible on a lake or canal so you don’t always need the beach. Of course, the key to do chill by or in the water is to do so in recycled swimwear. Just as important it is to take care of our body it is also extremely important to take care of the environment. By wearing high quality swimwear, you guys can help to fight the plastic pollution and do good while looking cute. Not that hard right?
Especially after a long day in the sun or the water it is even more important to take good care of our skin. After taking a shower make sure to put on some lotion or after-sun. What is great for the body is to use aloe vera. If you are enjoying a holiday in a country where aloe vera plants grow you can easily find aloe vera leaves at the market and apply them on your skin to give it a lot of moisture. Especially if you forgot to put sunscreen on for once, it is the best cure to heal a sunburn. You want to look cute again quickly to rock your bikini right?
Always wash your face twice a day. In the morning, splash your face with cold water for about 10 seconds. Then pat it dry with a washcloth or facial sponge. This will help stimulate the blood flow and is really good for the skin. Make sure to always remove make-up at the end of the day, and wash your face again.
We all know the days in summer are endless and you can stay outside super long. However, it is extremely important to get enough sleep. Always make sure to sleep as much as your body needs. Such as important as good sleep is eating healthy and drinking a lot of water. Drink plenty of water to clear up your skin and aid your kidneys in excreting toxins from your body. We can recommend purchasing a reusable water bottle that fits at least 1l or even better 1.5l. Avoid buying a bottle made of plastic. There are many nice glass or stainless steel options which will keep your desired drinking temperature. To make the water more tasty add some mint leaves and lemons. Adding lemon to the water helps you to fend off bloating and it offers detox benefits. Lemons contain a lot of vitamin C which will boost your immune system, which is even more important during times like these. It also helps you to flush out toxins, it cleans the liver and it improves your digestion.
Finally, we all know summer can get a bit sweaty. To be the most comfortable we advise to wear breathable clothes. You should stick to soft and light breathable linen or organic cotton items.
