Summer is right around the corner and with it comes bikini ready skin! Do you know how to get your skin bikini ready and oh-so-beautiful? If not, you've got to take a look at my top 7 tips to get bikini ready skin! That way you know your skin will be glowing, beautiful and will shimmer and shine in the sun! So, you ready to slip right into your bikini and flaunt your beautiful skin?
1. Take Time with Hair Removal
One of the biggest rushes that I have when I'm working on getting my skin ready for a swimsuit is hair removal. I want to do it as quickly as possible! That's why taking your time with your hair removal is my first bikini ready skin tip! When you take your time, you won't end up with razor burns and you'll also end up with softer hair. So, be careful with your hair!
2. Exfoliate All of Your Skin
A lot of women forget that exfoliating your skin can remove all of the dead cells and make it super soft and clear! I know that I exfoliate my face all of the time, but I never thought about exfoliating my stomach, my arms and my legs – but now that I do? It really makes my skin glow and shine!
3. Gradual Self Tanner
Before you hit the sand, you might want to consider giving yourself a little bit of a tan. I use Jergen's Natural Glow so that my skin naturally and gradually becomes tanner, versus using a self tanner that will make me instantly darker and can streak.
4. Don't Forget Your Feet
One thing that you may forget when you are trying to get your skin bikini ready is your feet. Don't do that! Your feet need to be scrubbed, exfoliated and moisturized too! For me, I use a pumice stone and then I lotion them every single night with a foot balm. This keeps my heels beautiful and my arches looking awesome!
5. Acne Fighting Body Wash
Do you have acne all over your back or arms? You don't want that when you are slipping into something so revealing! Instead, knock that acne out with an acne fighting body wash. Don't use your typical face wash, instead find a body wash that has some awesome acne clearing properties inside of it!
6. Use Sunscreen
You are probably thinking that this is a given, right? Well, most people forget that sunscreen is needed all year round, even when there isn't a whole lot of sun out! I use a bit of sunscreen on any part of my skin that I think is going to be exposed to the sun, to make sure that it is protected!
7. Hydrate Yourself
Finally, keeping your skin plump and super beautiful requires water – drinking a lot of water! Hydrating yourself will not only clear out acne and keep your skin looking fresh and clean, but water will do wonders for your entire body, so make sure that you toss a bottle of water in with your beach kit!
So, now that you know exactly how to get your skin ready for your bikini, what are you looking forward to the most when summer rolls around? Is it the swimming, the warm weather, the long lazy days? Tell me!
