Summer is just around the corner, and that means that now is the time to rev up your beauty routine to look your best when warm weather hits. This season, all eyes will be on you when you radiate glowing skin and hair that is the hallmark of health and beauty. Here are the top tips for getting yourself summer ready so that you can hit the beach with confidence and dazzle at your favorite seasonal celebrations.
Get Glowing Skin
The winter weather can take its toll on your skin and leave it dry, ruddy and discolored. One great way to jump start your skin is to recognize that glowing skin begins with a healthy diet. According to Elle, leafy greens such as broccoli give you an estrogen-boost that can help to liven up your complexion. In addition to a healthy diet, remember to exfoliate to remove dead layers of skin before applying your favorite moisturizer and sunscreen. This will help you maintain your glow all summer long without worrying about sun damage and wrinkles.
Pamper with a Pedicure
Throughout the winter, many women overlook their toes and focus on having the perfect manicure for holiday events. However, summer sandals will have your feet on full display. Make sure to put your best foot forward by getting a pedicure that will exfoliate your soles and remove any rough spots. Once your feet are in summer shape, apply one of summer’s hottest shades of polish on your nails for a fresh look that will show you focus on every detail. Cornflower blue, seashell pink and aquamarine are all hot choices for your summer pedicure this season.
Liven Up Your Locks
Luscious locks are a must-have for summer, and the freezing weather has likely done a number on your hair. Help bring your locks back to life by doing a deep conditioning treatment that will replenish moisture. This will help ensure that your hair will be soft and flowing, even after a day swimming in the chlorine. When the summer heat arrives, Fitness Magazine also recommends stocking up on dry shampoo that you can use to remove oil from your scalp while adding volume. Finish up your summer hair routine by adding a few strategically placed highlights that will draw attention to your face while brightening up your overall look.
Prepare to Go Bare
When the temperatures begin to rise, then so will the hemlines, which means that the unsightly blemishes you have been hiding beneath baggy winter sweaters will be on full display. Make sure your body is swimsuit and shorts ready by scheduling a treatment for any wrinkles, varicose veins, cellulite and errant hairs that detract from your flawless complexion. Most of these procedures can be completed in a short office visit so that you can get on with the rest of your summer beauty routine. We also recommend either getting back on track, or getting started, with a fun outdoor fitness routine so that you can wear your swimsuit with confidence.
This summer, spend your days showing off your carefree spirit while knowing that you have covered all of the details with your new beauty routine. From a freshly painted set of toenails to a glowing complexion with nary a blemish, you can look your best with only a few small tweaks to your normal routine. By focusing on your hair, skin and nails, you can embrace the summer sun while being the picture of perfect health and beauty this season.
