Here are some tips to help you make the most of it by looking, and feeling, your best this summer.   Get Your Glow On For those of us that do not tan easily, the prospect of whacking out the bikini and baring our skin to the world can be incredibly daunting!  Luckily, finding a good tanning lotion is easier than ever these days, providing a gorgeous, bronzed finish without having to expose ourselves to those harmful UV rays! For the best results build up your color slowly and invest in a product that has UV protection included.  To get that perfect summer glow, try adding some glimmer to your arms and legs as well, and pick a product with tiny sparkly particles to add to your facial moisturizer.  Protect Your Skin It is all well and good to use fake tan to make your skin look healthy and bronzed, but you will be doing yourself a disservice if you do not protect your skin at the same time.  Layer on the sunblock anytime you plan on being outside, 30 minutes before you walk through the door is best, and ensure you reapply every two hours or so.  Protecting your skin during the scorching summer months is not just about sunscreen either, remember to stay hydrated and get your five fruit and veg. Your skin will thank you in the long run!  Care for Your Hair You may not think about it as much, but just like your skin can get damaged and dehydrated under intense sun rays, so can your hair.  That is why it is essential to take care of your hair and switch up your products to lock in moisture and stop your hair from getting burnt.  Consider washing less frequently or adding a leave-in conditioner to your routine to minimize frizz and adding a hair mask or hairspray to up the hydration, and if you are someone that spends a lot of time in the ocean a swim cap will help keep split ends at bay. Get the Right Fit  The biggest fashion mistake you can make this summer is wearing clothes that don’t fit right. Somewhere between barely there and Billie Eilish baggie is best. Treat yourself to a summer shopping spree, and find an outfit that fits your frame, looks great, and makes you feel even better.  At the same time though make sure you are comfy! Avoid heavy artificial fabrics and stick to the gentle, light, and breathable cotton.  Lastly, find out what color best suits your skin tone and eye color, and rock it! Add accents and trinkets that show off your personality and bring out your vibrant summer side; don’t be afraid to experiment and most importantly have fun with it!
