Summer is just around the corner, meaning it is time to kick up your fashion and beauty routine. Everything from getting feet sandal-ready to making sure you have the perfect outfit to go from beach to hot date is at stake. It is time for fun in the sun, so start getting ready now.
Clothes that Pull Double Duty
Nothing puts a damper on meeting a new guy at the beach more than having to leave. A properly planned wardrobe and bag means there is no need to part ways, even if he asks you out on a spontaneous date after the sun goes down.
The key is a swimsuit cover that pulls double duty. If it is cute enough, all you have to do is throw some underwear, cute sandals, and an awesome hair accessory into your bag and you are good to go. Make sure you makeup is water proof and you are even closer to being ready.
Never Underestimate the Power of Smell
Not just how you smell to others, but the smells you surround yourself with. Scent can set the mood, make you feel sexy or relaxed, and get you ready for fun in the sun. When you are in a great mood, you look great. Using aromatherapy essential oils like those offered by LiveTru can make all the difference.
Add a drop or two to bathwater, moisten a cloth and throw in your beach bag, or simply leave the bottle open to scent the room as you dress. Choose a scent that matches the mood you should be in to enjoy the activities of the day and you are set.
Take Care of the Bare
Remember that the summer time is a time to show a lot of skin that is not normally bare. Areas such as the back, shoulders, and feet can suffer from being undercover all winter. Start early getting those areas ready to show off. Get a pedicure or give yourself one, treat any blemishes on your back, and make sure shoulders have a healthy glow or sparkle by brushing on a bronzer or sparkly powder.
Do yourself a favor and try on last year’s suit before trying to wear it out. It may be fine, but right before you hit the beach is not the time to discover a size issue or a rip. Put in a little time and effort on the front end and you will rock your summer.
