How to Prepare for Your Summer Holiday
If you’ve got a summer holiday coming up, you probably want to look your absolute best. This will take a little preparation, but it’ll be worth it when you look hot by the pool or on the beach! Use this guide to prepare for your summer holiday the right way:
Eat Right and Exercise
Start as soon as in advance as you can when it comes to eating right and exercising. The sooner you start, the better! You don’t want to realise you have 1 week to go until holiday and starve yourself. That’s definitely not the way to go. Start at least 1 month in advance to see improvements. You should eat right 80% of the time, only allowing yourself 1 or 2 cheat meal per week. If you can eat natural foods and make sure you fill up on protein, you’ll do great! You still need carbs of course, but just make sure you keep your portion sizes under control. You can’t cut them out, as it just isn’t health. Exercise at least 3 times a week, doing something that you enjoy. You need to enjoy it or you won’t stick to it. If you can create new, healthy habits then that’s great! This should be a lifestyle forever, not just for your holiday.
Look After Your Skin
Your skin can get burned on holiday, so it’s essential you look after it. Some people like to have a few sunbed sessions before they go away to accustom their skin to the sun, but there’s no proof that this actually works. The best thing you can do is exfoliate a few times a week, and moisturise so your skin is lovely and supple. When it comes to your face, make sure you cleanse, tone, and moisturise regularly. You should use a gentle exfoliant on your face once or twice per week, and a face mask once per week. You’ll glow when you’re on the beach!
Plan Hair Removal Methods
Hair removal is important if you want to look and feel like a goddess while you’re away. There are lots of different methods you can use, from various home depilation methods to salon waxing treatments. It depends on your budget and how long you want the effects to last. Make sure you decide in advance and book your appointment, so you can get advice from the therapist on how to ensure your hair is in great condition for the treatment. Make sure you stick to their advice. If you have a sunbed session after a hair treatment, you could seriously burn yourself.
Plan Other Beauty Treatments
Plan your other beauty treatments. Work out a budget and consider what’s most important to you. You might want a nice set of HD brows, or some long, fluttery lashes. One of the best things you can do is ensure you look pretty even with no makeup on. Then you don’t have to worry at all when you’re on the beach or by the pool.
