The Beach Countdown Is On!


Summer is just a few months away, and that means it’s time to get your beach beauty in order so that you can strut your stuff on the beach. Ready to dazzle all your fellow sunbathers? Here are some fantastic tips that can help you look fabulous all summer long.

Sunscreen Is Your Best Friend

There is nothing more important than sunscreen! Without this necessary lotion, you will end up redder than a lobster and in a whole world of pain. You will also be putting yourself at risk of developing skin cancer. So, make sure you have a bottle of sunscreen in your beach bag at all times. It’s a good idea to get a waterproof lotion if you plan on going for a splash in the sea. For those of you with pale skin, you should be applying sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Don’t forget to reapply as often as you need to – your skin will thank you for it!


Aloe Is Another Fab Beach Buddy

Something else that you should be taking with you to every beach trip is a product with Aloe in it. Not only is it anti-inflammatory and a great moisturizer, but aloe can also help cool down your skin after it’s been exposed to the sun. Applying it liberally just before you leave the beach will stop your skin from feeling dry and scaly the next day. Some studies have shown that the antioxidants in Aloe can heal the skin after sunburn and reduce the risk of skin cancer.

Bikini Fashion

We all have different ways of getting beach body ready. Some girls like to slim down with a diet or find out about lipo procedures while others believe that they are ready for the beach just as they are! Once you’ve done the prep to suit you, it’s time to hunt the perfect bikini. This year, there are some really big bikini trends for you to consider. You might want to go for one in this season’s hottest shade, nude. Or you might be inspired by the asymmetric lines of one-shoulder bikinis, which is all set to be another huge style this summer.


Plan Your Wax Well

Whether you prefer to wax or shave your bikini area, it’s important that you plan it well before you hit the beach. It’s not a good idea to do it the day before as all of the salt in the sea water could cause some serious irritation! That’s also the case with the chlorine that is found in pool water. Ideally, see to your grooming a couple of days before the area is going to be exposed to harsh sunlight and seawater. That way you won’t be plagued by itchiness and redness – you will, hopefully, forget all about your recent wax!

It’s important to be smart about your beauty before you step out onto the beach. Otherwise, you could end up looking far from fashionable indeed! It doesn’t matter how fashionable your bikini may be, there is no way you can pull off sunburn!
