Get the ultimate beach body this summer with our hottest tips and tricks to make it happen.
Hydrate. Although some may feel bloated when consuming too much water, not drinking enough water causes your body to retain water under the skin, leaving you looking puffy. Water is the best thing to drink to stay hydrated, and hydration is important to being healthy.
Fake it before you make it. Now that we are in full swing of Summer, there are some extra things you can do (as well as jumping on that treadmill) to make yourself appear slimmer and more defined. Instead of thongs, go for wedges or something with a heel. This will elongate your legs and bring out your muscles. Wearing a drop necklace creates a focus on your clavicle. Or using caftans and other coverups can create a light and feminine look.
Revisit your healthy eating plan. Ensure you select lean proteins such as poultry, fish, and eggs and reduce your intake of pasta and other carbohydrates. It’s also worthwhile to take stock of your sugar intake and make sure you don’t overindulge.
Confidence. There is a lot to be said about how you portray yourself and your self-image. Don’t forget to love the skin you are in! Walking tall with your head held high can inspire others and create an aura around you that is bursting with positivity.
Get the right amount of shut eye. Getting between six to eight hours of sleep each night does wonders for your mind and body. This is when your body has time to repair itself and ensures it can operate efficiently during the day. Don’t skimp on this area – you can never make up for sleep once it’s lost.
Exercise. Yep, we weren’t going to leave this one out! You can help curb the kilos this summer and look better with a combination of cardio and resistance training.
