The summer season will be here soon, so it is time to trade your jackets and jeans for shorts and tank tops. It is most likely that you will be out and about a lot more often and perhaps also showing a bit more skin so you have to look your best. Here are five ways you can look amazing this summer. Some are a little more extreme than others, but some are just basic lifestyle choices
Limit Your Sodium Intake
If you want to drop a few pounds and look less bloated, you should just limit your sodium intake. Limiting your sodium intake is not difficult and can help you shed a few pounds quickly. Too much salt dehydrates the body, causing it to retain water, giving you that bloated and puffy look. You will be amazed how much more slimline you will feel just by reducing your salt intake and making sure you drink plenty of water. Instead of filling up on chips and pizza, eat a piece of grilled chicken with a side of green vegetables – and a large glass of water!
Whiten Your Smile
Are your teeth looking a bit dull lately? If they are, consider whitening your smile. A whiter smile can make you look a lot younger, which will make you feel more confident. Contact your local cosmetic dentist today and set up an appointment. This is one of the more extreme measures, but it may bring you oodles more confidence.
Get a Fake Tan
A sun-kissed glow will make your skin look very beautiful. However, you do not have to lie in a tanning bed to achieve a tan. There are much healthier ways to achieve colour including a spray tan. If you go to your local tanning salon and get a spray tan, you will instantly look tan. Avoid getting wet for at least 24 hours after you get a spray tan. Everyone will think that you spent a week in the Bahamas when they see you. If you are unable to get to a tanning salon, then there are plenty of alternatives on the high street that you can use in your own home. Beware of streaky lines though!
Highlight Your Hair
Highlighting your hair will instantly brighten your complexion and make you look amazing this summer. Visit your hairdresser and ask her to give you a few face framing highlights. The highlights should be thin and no more than two shades lighter than your natural hair colour.
Get a Facial
If your skin is looking a bit dull and dry still from the winter, you should get a facial. A facial will remove dead skin cells, leaving you with a smoother and brighter complexion. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money at a spa, just make your own facial at home. For example, you can make a honey facial mask. This facial mask will hydrate your skin and make it look a lot brighter. The best thing about creating your own facial, is that you can tailor it exactly to your skins needs. You can also create natural alternatives to high street products, great for sensitive or delicate skin.
As you can see, you do not have to spend a lot of money to look great. If you follow these helpful tips, you will look amazing this summer.
