Spring break is just around the corner. Which means diets, tanning, exercise, and overall just feeling good in one’s skin. Here are a few tips and tricks to have you feeling your best this spring break.
1. Give up dairy
I recently gave dairy up last month and it has done wonders to my body. My skin has drastically cleared up since my body is no longer contaminated with all the hormones that come with milk, cheese, and yogurt. I also have lost weight because of this change in my diet. If you are afraid of not getting enough calcium in your diet just switch to almond milk. I personally love the unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It tastes great with my cereal for breakfast.
Start hitting the gym right now and get on that treadmill or elliptical. Cardio is a great way to shred that extra body fat before you rock your bathing suit. If you are not in shape start small, there is no need to whip out three miles at your first gym session. You can begin by walking on the treadmill on an incline. Make a fun playlist, put your headphones in and get walking or running.
3. Amp up your wardrobe
Start shopping now. You do not want to be disappointed if you waited too long and now your clothes will not come in on time, or all the good clothes are picked over. I recently ordered bathing suits and rompers from a website called Shein. The clothes tend to be cheap and can sometimes be a hit or miss, but hey if something does not work out they have free returns. I also bought a pair of platform sandals. I definitely recommend getting a pair of black ones as they can make any outfit look instantly cuter.
4. Go tanning
Start getting that base tan going as you do not want to be the palest person on the beach. If you are into UV tanning go for it! Remember to start with a small amount of time though so you do not turn red. I usually opt for the at home tanning methods. Personally, I use Jergens Instant Sun Tanning Mouse and it gives me a nice color without making me look orange.
I know those feet have been hidden in your boots for the past couple of months. So, it is important to get those feet looking in tip top shape so you look cute while barefoot on the beach. Treat yourself to a pedicure before you go. Or, if you are on a budget be sure to exfoliate your feet and paint your nails.
These are just a few of my own tips and tricks that I find to be useful when prepping for spring break, or even just throughout the year. It is never a bad thing to want to look and feel your best, no matter the time of year. I hope you find these tips helpful, and are on your way to being the most confident version of youself this spring break!
