5 Tips to Get Bikini Ready

  • May 20, 2014 at 9:00 am

The weather is warming up and summer is just around the corner. Girls across the UK are starting to dream of sandy beaches, sunshine and relaxing by the pool. All girls want to look their best on the beach… Read on for our top 5 tips on how to get ready for the upcoming bikini season!

1.      Exfoliate/fake tan

Golden, glowing skin looks gorgeous but shouldn’t be done at the expense of your health. When you lie in the sun for hours your skin soaks up harmful UV rays that can contribute to skin cancer, age spots and wrinkles. Fake tan is a much safer, healthier and faster way of achieving a goddess like gleam. Prep your skin by exfoliating all over to get rid of dead cells and dry, flaky skin. Whether you are using self-application lotion or a professional spray tan, exfoliating helps reduce streaks and will make your tan last longer. When you’re all scrubbed up, rub the tanning lotion into your body and leave as per the instructions. You’ll have beautiful, tanned bikini ready skin in no time!

2.      Drink water

Winter is cold which means we generally lose the urge to drink water. This is bad as keeping hydrated is an essential part of ensuring skin is kept healthy. In the lead up to summer, try to drink the recommended eight glasses of water a day to help your body flush unwanted toxins and get you ready to look your best on the beach.

3.      Exercise

Exercising is one of the most effective ways to ditch the winter chub and get your body terrifically trim for the upcoming bikini season. Sweating also helps cleanse the pores and will help your skin look fresh and clear when you haven’t got makeup at hand.

4.      Eat fresh foods

As the age old saying goes ‘you are what you eat’. Packing your diet full of fruit and veggies is a wonderful way to look and feel great this summer! There are some amazing foods out there that taste delicious and keep your body happy and healthy. Try adding fresh fruit to your morning cereal, blending up delicious mixed smoothies and throwing an extra handful of veggies into your dinner.

5.      Choose  the right swimsuit 

The key to looking great is self-confidence and the ability to be comfortable in your own skin. Girls that love themselves positively ooze sexiness. One of the best ways to feel confident in a bikini is to choose the right shape for your body type. Bandeau bikinis are incredibly flattering to athletic shapes. Fuller figured girls look amazing in halter necks while underwired bra shaped pieces are great for all sizes.

If you prefer a little more coverage a one piece also makes a bold statement. Whatever your size, we have a fabulous range of swimwear that will enhance your bust and give you the confidence to rock the beach in style!
