Everyone loves the summer. Warm weather and plenty of sunshine make the perfect combination for outdoor parties and adventures. Even if you have no summer vacation plans, chances are you’ll be spending time at the pool, the ocean or other outdoor venues where you will want to look and feel your best. Below are 5 tips that will get you ready to rock an incredible summer.
- Boost Your Smile
Summer is full of photo opportunities. So, why not look your best in all your shots by turning up the wattage on your smile? A mouth full of pearly white teeth will make you feel more confident while taking years off of your face. If your teeth have become discolored, it might be an excellent time to boost your smile by investing in the best teeth whitening method you can find.
2. Compliment Your Body Type
Looking good during the summer is not just about having fashionable clothes, it’s about having outfits that fit your body type, maximize your assets, and hug you in all the right places. If a personal stylist or tailor falls outside your budget, consider signing up for a clothing service that quizzes you on your style and your size, then sends you pieces that are perfect for your proportions.
3. Get the Perfect Summer Hair
When summer heat hits, the allure of pools and beaches is often too strong to resist. Yet all that chlorine and salt can damage your hair, leaving it looking less than its best. Check out these tips on how to keep your hair clean, shiny and hydrated. After all, you want your tresses to look their best when you dress them up with funky hair accessories, tousle them into waves, or capture them in the perfect summer updo.
4. Maximize your Makeup
Just like you put away your winter clothes at the end of the season, you need to put away your winter makeup. Summer concealer should be sheer, bringing more of a soft, natural glow to your skin. Lipstick can incorporate tones that are brighter and bolder. As you change up your colors and shades, don’t forget the importance of the right primers to ensure that your makeup won’t run and smear in the heat. Incorporate liquid eyeliner and blush when possible, because they hold up better in the heat. And don’t forget to invest in a setting spray—it locks all your makeup into place on hot days.
5. Get in Shape
Get ready for an unavoidable truth: you can’t look and feel your best this summer if you are not in shape. Two of the best things you can do to kick your fitness into gear are incorporating HIIT and strength training into your workouts. HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) is a type of workout that is shorter in duration but more intense than most cardio exercises. It can be done anywhere and burns a lot of calories quickly. Strength training will tighten and tone your muscles which in turn helps your body burn fat more efficiently pretty much all the time. Both of these types of exercise will get you on the fast track to fitness.
Summer is an incredible time of year, so why not enjoy it by looking and feeling your best? Be forever photo‐ready by whitening your smile, changing up your makeup, and wearing clothes that compliment your shape. Keep your hair looking great by protecting it from unnecessary damage and feel comfortable in your skin by getting in shape. Follow these simple steps and your best summer awaits!
