Longer days, warmer weather and fewer layers are a firm indication that Spring is here. As Spring firmly takes hold, we begin to think more about warmer temperatures and fun that can be had in the sun. Accompanying thoughts of lounging pool side with a cock tail or sipping Pina Coladas on a tropical beach comes the inevitable list of items to be completed before any fun can be had.
5 Tips To Prep For Fun In The Sun
- Swim Suit
The most important accessory of the summer is a swim suit – or 3. Finding the suit that is perfect for your body type is essential to great fun in the sun! No one knows fashion more than InStyle Magazine; here are their Hottest Swimsuit Styles From Resort 2016 Swim Week. No matter which style you choose, you’re sure to look amazing and have a wonderful summer of fun! You can also use Pinterest and Instagram to search swimwear styles!
- Bikini Wax
The logical next step in summer prep – a bikini wax or even the daring Brazilian wax. No matter which one you choose – nearly every woman makes an appointment for some “spring cleaning” to be sure she looks smooth and sexy. Warning: the last thing you want in your bikini area are unsightly bumps from ingrown hairs caused by your waxing. Be sure to apply PFB Vanish Bikini Mask directly after your service and then apply PFB Vanish daily. If you are prone to having dark spots after the bumps, use PFB Vanish with Chromabright to lighten the dark spots.
- Beach Body Workout
Oh, the struggle! No more bulky sweaters and Lululemon hoodies to hide under, now it’s time to face the music and get to work! It was fun during the holidays, celebrating with yummy treats and a few extra cocktails at all those parties. Now it’s time to pay the piper and hit the gym and count those calories to get that beach body back! No matter if you love Crossfit, Pilates, Running, Yoga or Spinning – it’s time to get dedicated and hit it hard for a hard body this summer.
- Spray Tan
The irony here is that many women get a tan to go to a pool party or the beach so they can have fun and work on their tan. No one wants those dreaded stark white legs exposed at a fabulous summer kick off pool party! A quick spray tan will give you a sun kissed golden glow.
It’s much fun to dip your toes in the water or have them play in the sand, but we always want to make sure they’re freshly done. Sit back, relax, put on your favorite play list or peruse Facebook as you indulge in one of the most popular summer preparation treatments – a yummy pedicure. Check out OPI or Essie’s hottest summer colors and pick a color combination that suits your personality.
Don’t let your list of necessary tasks for summer fun prep weigh you down. Take the time to plan out your necessary appointments and have fun! Many salons and spas offer all of the services under one roof – if you book well in advance you an make the time to get your wax, pedicure and spray tan in one appointment. Start using Pinterest and Instagram to search styles of swimsuits that you love, and then book an afternoon of shopping with girlfriends. As far as the beach body – make it fun – get a group of friends to create target date to be ready for the beach. Plan work outs together and plan healthy meals / dinners out with your group. Have a great summer of 2016
