5 Tips to get Beach Body Ready

5 Tips to get Beach Body Ready

Getting ready to hit the beach? So are we! Check out this blog for our top tips on getting your winter body into peak beach body shape so you can hit the sand and feel great.

We’re firm believers that anyone can rock a bikini, so remember that a “beach body” means different things to different people. Don’t be afraid to rock what you’ve got when the summer comes! We think you look awesome.

1. Watch your liquids

Are you sick of people telling you to drink more water yet? We hope not, because our first tip involves upping your hydration levels. Not only does consuming a lot of water keep you feeling full, it’s also great for your skin.

Also, a super simple way to reduce your caloric intake is to drop sugary beverages from your diet. Switch to carbonated water, and your body will thank you.

2. Examine your diet

Take a good long look at your eating trends. What are your known offenders? Why do you consistently slip up with them?

Look at those patterns and make an effort to cut a few key foods that have high calories with no nutritional payoff. Be prepared to fight with yourself a little, but the payoff will be worth it.

3. Self tan

Before you get out there in your swimsuit, start building your base layer of fake tan in the winter. Now’s an especially great time to do this if you use a slower product that builds over time.

You’ll find that a little extra color will make you feel and look a little sunnier when summer rolls around.

4. Shake up your exercise routine

Stuck in an exercise rut? Now’s the time to change it up! Switch up your routine as you enter into the spring and summer seasons.

Switch your sets, try a new class, or test out that machine you’ve always been scared of at the gym.

5. Get a new swimsuit

We admit that we’re a little biased, but we think a cute new swimsuit is just the ticket to accentuate your rocking beach body. Plus, picking a suit out in the winter is such a hopeful activity; you’ll be forced to remember that warmer times are coming, even if winter seems to take forever.
