After months of cold and chilly weather in winter and spring, you can finally feel the hot sun on your body when summer comes. In this article, we will be looking at a few ways to make your body perfect for the summer.
Engage in physical activity
Keep up your exercise routine in the colder months as well. It will strengthen blood circulation to the body and increase metabolism. This will keep you warmer in the cold climate and also help prepare body for the summer. It is time to pack up your winter wear, fleece blankets and alpaca coats and open up your wardrobe of light and stylish clothing. Keep to a regular fitness routine so that you can effortlessly slip back into your summer wear. Do some toning exercises for a fitter looking body such as squats for thighs, push ups, leg raises, sit ups etc.
Protection against UV radiation
You can use hats, umbrellas, sun lotion to protect the skin exposed to the sun. But you can also include certain food that will give you an extra boost against radiation. According to research, it has been found out that tomatoes are an excellent method to combat harmful effects of the sun. You can try variants of it such as tomato sauce, soup and grilled tomatoes.
It is better to employ ways to keep your house cooler as well. Remove additional insulation such as heavy curtains and wool and alpaca products within the house including rugs, carpets that can keep your floors cosy in winter. Pack them away and open up the house to facilitate passive ventilation. Shade all surfaces of your house; walls, roof, porch etc. You can do this by growing vegetation close to the house. Evaporative cooling is another option.
Regular exfoliation can enable you to have smooth glowing skin. You can use several methods such as brushes, scrubs and polishing clothes. If you’re looking for a scrub, select a scrub that includes natural ingredients that dissolve over time like sugar. Exfoliating should be done with care because sometimes if you’re too sensitive the skin can become inflamed. There are chemical products that will help with this action as well.
Pamper your feet
You have to move away from wearing boots and thick shoes and prepare for summer weather. You will be mostly using sandals, flip flops and open toed footwear. You can soften your feet while you’re sleeping by applying a cream, covering your feet in cotton socks or plastic wrap, and leaving overnight. You can also use a foot scrub.
You can’t get rid of cellulite forever but you can enjoy smooth polished skin for special moments like enjoying a beach day or special occasion. There are special products that will make your skin look and feel tighter. Another way is self-tanning.
Clear up body breakouts
You can get acne on your back and chest as well. To minimise the effects try regular exfoliation. It is not advised to pick at it as that may make the condition worse. There are products that will combat acne. If you’re using a product, try a product that will include Salicylic acid as it will help in removing dead skin layers.
