One of the best things about summer in addition to great weather is the cute, breezy fashion that shows off our bodies. One of the worst things about summer? Well, the cute, breezy fashion that shows off our bodies. If you’re feeling fit and sexy you’ll jump at the opportunity to wear short shorts and tiny bikinis. If not, well, the situation becomes quite different. While your friends run around in skimpy things, you sit all covered up, looking awkward as you cook in your own sweat and feel insecure. However, you don’t need to worry too much. We all forget ourselves during the cold months and spring is pretty much the perfect time to get our mojo back and work on our body. Want to be ready for the heat of summer and feel confident in your own skin? Here’s what you need to do.

Get a personal trainer

There’s no easier way to get in shape than by having a professional trainer help you. You don’t need to always work with one when you’re at the gym, but finding someone who can show you the ropes and tell you what kind of exercise you can use to achieve your specific goal makes a huge difference. A trainer can teach you how to do every single exercise correctly, how to give your muscles better definition, and how to build endurance over time. They can also motivate you and push you to work harder. Alternatively, you could also simply find a gym buddy with more experience who can give you tips and help you out with your fitness journey. Working in pairs has also been shown to be very effective at keeping you motivated.

Do a workout challenge

Not everyone can afford a personal trainer, and some people just hate going to the gym. That’s okay. What you can do instead, is start a fitness challenge that lasts anywhere from 30 to 90 days. This will give you a very clear plan to stick to and marking down the days on your calendar after a finished workout can be very inspiring and make you feel proud of yourself. You can pick a premade challenge like the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, or create your own custom challenge by combining some workouts from Darebee. Don’t worry, these are free and a lot of them are very beginner friendly. From yoga to cardio, pick any kind of exercise that you enjoy, print out your challenge, and then stick it to your fridge or your bedroom wall where you’ll see it every day.

Eat clean and do a detox

Of course, there is absolutely no way to lose weight unless you create a caloric deficiency, and dieting is going to be necessary if extra pounds are your main issue. This, however, does not mean starving yourself. Quite the opposite, in fact! By simply cutting down on sugar and processed food and replacing all that junk with more veggies and lean meats you can see a significant improvement both in your weight and your overall health. Another thing we recommend is going on a little detox to help with bloating and fatigue. To do this, simply start drinking more liquids, particularly water and tea. Something like the Edible Beauty Golden Glow tea is a great choice for summer because it helps your body balance out hormones and gives your skin a healthy, radiant glow. So, switch your sugary soda drinks and coffee for this tea, cut down on alcohol, and let your liver rest.

Full-body scrub

Want smooth, silky skin? Then you need to start it off with a good scrub, and we’ve got just the recipe: white sugar and coffee. That’s it, just those two ingredients! They will not only slough away the rough texture, but coffee will also help reduce cellulite on your thighs and glutes and make your skin feel like velvet.

Tan for the beach goddess

Now that you’ve scrubbed, it’s the perfect time to give yourself a nice tan. We absolutely do not recommend ever going to a tanning salon, but getting your tan from a bottle is perfectly safe and it looks absolutely natural if you apply it the right way. Getting that scrub really helps because it makes smooth, even application easier, and using a good product like the Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer is also important. We recommend that you apply a layer of regular lotion to your palms and let it dry first and that you avoid applying self-tanner to your knees and elbows if you don’t want them to look muddy. You could also add a few drops of the Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster to your daily moisturizer to tan your face in a natural, gradual manner.
There you go ladies, all-natural ways to get your body ready for summer! Jump right in and start preparing because your vacation is just around the corner and you’ve got a chance to look fit and fabulous when the time comes.
