7 Tips to Make Sure You're
Summer Ready 🌞
Summertime is right around the corner. And you might be wondering if you’re ready for the change in weather, beach days, and burning sun rays. In this article, we’ll cover 7 ways you can make sure you are summer-ready.
Stock Up on Sunscreen
With new exciting activities happening during the sunny days, you’ll want to make sure your skin is protected. Make sure to buy the right sunscreen for your skin. Buying sunscreens with “broad spectrum” protection protects you against UVA and UVB rays. Sunscreens with a sun protection factor (SPF) higher than 30 will also protect you more against UVB rays. These rays can cause sunburns and skin cancers, so you’ll want to make sure you buy the right sunscreen.
Start An Exercising Routine
With summer around the corner, it’s understandable that you’ll want your body to be summer-ready. Right now is the perfect time to start an exercise routine that you’ll be able to maintain. Whether that’s working out 4 times a week or doing quick walks around the park, now is the time to be active. Working out doesn’t just make you look good; it also improves heart health and your overall mood. When you work out, you release serotonin, which is why after your workouts you’ll notice an improvement in your mood.
Work on Your Skincare Routine
During the wintertime, we’re used to having to deal with dryer skin. But with summer, there will be a new set of challenges to upkeep our skin routine. Now is the time to invest in skincare products that will help keep your skin healthy and happy. Try investing in hemp oils and lotions to soothe your skin and mind. Hemp skin creams also have essential oils and moisturize and soothe the skin. These products even have anti-aging properties that reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Pick Up Healthy Eating Habits
If you’re still having trouble getting back on a healthy diet because of past holidays, it’s time to change. You can start by eating out less or eating fewer carbs. Don’t cut out carbs completely; your body uses it as fuel to give you energy! Some people want to lose a few pounds before bikini season and others just want to get on a healthier path. Start looking into recipes that fit your needs and have fun cooking in the kitchen! If you’re not much of a chef, then try meal prepping so you’ll only have to do it once or twice a week.
When it comes to exfoliating, you want to start as soon as possible and maintain the habit. Exfoliating can help remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. If you exfoliate, you’ll improve your skin’s overall health and your skin will be able to absorb moisturizers better. Exfoliation will also brighten your skin and help prevent clogged pores. If you want to have glowing, beautiful skin before the summertime, start exfoliating now!
Start Looking Into Buying Swimsuits
Doesn’t it suck when summertime rolls around and all the bathing suits are gone? It’s the worst feeling when you walk into Target and you’re only finding one good top, but no bottoms. Many merchandiser stores are already stocking their shelves with bathing suits. So, you should get ahead of the curve and start buying your suits before everyone else.
Switch Up Your Deodorant
If you’ve been hearing about all-natural deodorant, then now’s the time to switch. All-natural deodorant is great because it helps your body detox from mainstream deodorants. For example, mainstream deodorant has an antiperspirant that keeps your body from sweating. But these deodorants use aluminum and preservatives to keep you from sweating.
If you’ve been wanting a more natural alternative to staying fresh, try all-natural deodorant. But be aware, there is a catch. When you switch to an all-natural deodorant, there is an adjustment period that can last a few weeks. As your body detoxes itself of the preservatives, you can start to have body odor. But this isn’t permanent. If you wait out the few weeks, you’ll begin to notice there’s no more smell because you’ve gotten the preservatives out of your system. So before the blistering sun rays arrive, go through the adjustment period now. This will help you sweat less before the heat kicks up so the adjustment won’t be as bad.
There is a lot of maintenance and routines you can start to make sure you are summer-ready. It’s best to do whatever you feel works best for you to get ready for the summer. Everyone is different and has various sets of methods they choose to follow.
