Spring Break is right around the corner, and if you’ve hit the panic button and are worried about how you’re going to look in a bikini, now might be the right time to start practicing the following helpful advice.
In the last weeks before your big getaway, there are a few things one can do to be beach-body ready in no time, even if the winter blues still have you feeling less-than-confident. The main motto of Spring Break beauty is worry and stress-free, because how you look in pictures should be the least of your concerns as you relax and enjoy the beach views – sipping on a mai tai, of course.
Getting that sunny glow is something most people aren’t naturally born with. Using a gradual self-tanner and exfoliating regularly can help skin look glowing.
This would also be the time to hit the gym as much as possible. Squeeze in as many workouts as you can, and watch what you eat for the next few weeks, particularly salty foods that cause bloating.
Above all, don’t resort to crazy diets or cleanses that promise to help you shed weight fast; eating and drinking less than usual will only cause your body to cling to the nutrients it has and go into “starvation mode”, which means it won’t be burning the calories you consume and it will hold on to weight.
Spring Break is usually pretty synonymous with having an all-around blast in skimpy clothes, so hair and makeup should be as natural and fuss-free as possible during your trip. Let your hair go natural or add a slight wave (which could also work in your favor if humidity strikes!), and use as little makeup as possible to keep from looking like a huge oil slick. This way you won’t have to worry about getting wet and your makeup smearing down your face.
If you have good scenery and good friends, there’s no need to overanalyze what you look like, but rather about feeling your best and making the most of your memorable trip.
