The phrase ‘bikini body’ has turned into such a hot topic recently. Many beauty campaigners will tell you that to get a bikini body, you simply need to put a bikini on it.

Buy a Bikini

This one may seem obvious! You’re going to need to go out and purchase a bikini if you want to be ready for the beach or swimming pool. Look for something that flatters all of your best bits. You can opt for high waisted bikinis if you fancy looking like Marilyn Monroe. Full swimsuits are great for those who don’t want to flash too much flesh. Triangle bikini tops will make your bust appear larger. And so on, and so forth. There are so many ways you can flatter your shape, without having to hit the gym. Try on lots of different styles and see which one you like best.

De-Hair

Okay, so some body image campaigners are against this too. However, I think if you want to feel relaxed on the beach then it doesn’t hurt to de-hair. Shaving can cause bumps and rashes, so you might want to steer clear of this. You could visit a hair removal clinic and have treatments to slow your regrowth. This is particularly useful if you’re planning to go on holiday. Of course, there are also plenty of other different methods you could try. Although the rest of them sound pretty painful.

Supple Skin

It’s time to hit that moisturizer! There’s nothing like chilling by the pool with super soft skin. You’re going to want to exfoliate your whole body on a regular basis before you hit the beach. This will clear away any dead skin and will help you pick up the perfect tan. Don’t forget to moisturize after each shower or bath. This will leave you feeling silky smooth, all of the time. Add these two elements to your skincare routine in time for summer. When your skin feels amazing, you’ll also feel amazing. Which means you’ll be far more confident and happier, wearing a bikini.

Holiday Hair

If you are planning on getting away, to show off that bikini, then consider your hair too. It’s a good idea to get it trimmed a week before you go on vacation. Although try to avoid any dyes that could react with the hotel pool. Bleach and chlorine don’t mix. It’s a good idea to protect your hair in the sunshine too. Always wear a sunhat. Preferably one that matches your bikini, of course.

Finally, you’re ready to hit the beach! That didn’t take long, did it? You should hopefully feel a lot more confident in your swimwear too. Now, the final thing. Make sure you’re protecting yourself in the sunshine. It can be too easy to get burnt, especially if you’re abroad. Lather yourself up in sunscreen when you’re wearing your bikini. A nice, even tan is beautiful. Sunburn is not.
