​Are you “beach-body” ready?

​Are you “beach-body” ready?

If you’re heading to a beach this summer, and you have a body, YES you are!I do appreciate, however, the thought of wearing swimwear may not fill you with joy – in fact many of us will leave shopping for costumes or bikinis until the very last minute (sound familiar?).Well, let me attempt to change all that by showing you some of the most amazing options out there: whatever you shape, whatever your size - you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Before I do, I thought it might help to share the 3 things that always make a huge difference to me when it comes to getting my body ready for a beach holiday (and no they don’t include a miserable quick-fix diet).They are simple, quick, and whilst they’re not rocket-science some-how many of us fail to do it.

  • Start your day with hot water and lemon – a superb way to kick-start your morning and a great detoxifier;
  • Body scrub and moisturise - it makes a huge difference to the texture and tone of your skin. It also helps when applying tinted moisturiser or gradual tan products;
  • Drink at least 2 litres of water daily (you should do this anyway but, in the lead up to holidays, up your intake and see how much better you feel).

Now, back to what to your perfect swimwear:

Yes I know they’re black but they are far from boring - they are simple, flattering and oh so chic.

Remember, ruching is a god-send when it comes to swimwear – it is so flattering and comfortable – what’s not to love?

The high-brief retro-style bikinis look so stylish and give you added support when you feel less than confident with your stomach area.

A classic bikini in a stunning bold colour (or colour combination) looks so beautiful, especially when you add a white oversized shirt as a cover-up (just saying)!

The tankini is a friend to all of us: so versatile when going from beach to lunch – just add a sarong and you’re ready to go.

For those who are a little more active on the beach – remember you can still look cool, confident and stylish.

A final note – don’t forget accessories make the outfit – beach or no beach.

Now you are most definitely “beach ready”, so grab that margarita and just enjoy!

Have a great week-end and feel free to share this post.
