Summer Bodies Are Made In Winter
If you think that you can relax now since you got back from your beach holiday, you are mistaken. Because let’s admit it, we need at least five months to get the results we seek whether from a product, diet, or workout. So as the title suggests: “summer bodies are made in winter” and this is exactly what you need to do during cold days working towards your next beach holiday. Here are all the things you need to have great skin on the beach
1 || Work On That Cellulite
Cellulite doesn’t differentiate between women, you could be skinny or overweight, athletic or not, and be the victim of this orange peel effect. The good news is that there are plenty of things you can do to minimize cellulite with and without the help of expensive medical treatments. First of all, exercising can and will help, but not in spotting-treat cellulite. However, losing body fat and firming the muscle underneath the skin help out a lot. Creams are another solution that you may want to consider. Products with caffeine and retinol-based topicals will also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, making your skin look temporarily tighter. . Just remember to massage them in when applying. Also, bear in mind that these may take time to work, so it makes sense to start from now. Lastly, if you are up for in-office or invasive treatments you might want to consider certain laser treatments or some other procedures such as Cellfina.
2 || The Best Time To Fade Scars And Dark Spots
Cold days mean less sun exposure. Which makes it a great time to solve skin issues such as dark spots, scars, and uneven skin tone. To solve this issue consider using a topical vitamin C followed by sunscreen to protect your skin while repairing the damage that’s already been done. You can use such products on your face, hands, chest, or neck. If your case is severe, consider some laser treatments such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). If you have some stubborn scars you might want to try Bio-Oil, vaseline, vitamin E oil, Aloe Vera Gel or shea butter
3 || Clear Up Body Breakouts
To many! Summer means more sweat and oil production, exposing of skin increases and pores on the chest and back might get clogged. The best approach to diminish body acne starts in the shower: Use a body wash with at least 1.25 percent salicylic acid (Neutrogena Body Clear Body Wash Pink Grapefruit contains 2 percent and doesn’t smell medicinal). If that doesn’t do the trick, once you’re dry, add a layer of benzoyl peroxide, or a prescription antibiotic lotion
4 || Treat Your Feet
The fact that your feet will be covered most of the winter does not mean that you can skip moisturizing or your pedicure appointments. Cold days are dry even on your feet so try to develop the habit of applying a rich emollient cream or ointment before bed, then cover the feet in plastic wrap and cotton socks. Leave on overnight. Repeat every day until you achieve smooth skin, then once a week to maintain soft skin. This will give great-looking feet during summer
5 || Erase Stretch Marks
Again skinny, overweight, or athletic you might be a victim of stretch marks. Before you resort to some laser treatments such as Vbeam Or Fraxel, or some injections like PRP, you might want to consider at-home treatments such as retinol or witch hazel creams
6 || If You Have Spider Veins
Those embarrassingly protruding veins primarily on your hands and possibly even your arms and your legs. As a temporary solution, we suggest hiding these veins using a yellow or orange waterproof concealer. For a more permanent solution, look into sclerotherapy, a procedure in which a solution is injected into the vein blocking it. Blood from the faulty veins will be rerouted to healthy veins
7 || Diet And Workout Routine
Consider healthier food choices. Stock up on seasonal fruits, drink plenty of water, plenty! Focus on protein sources coming from fish and salmon. This will eventually show on your body skin. As for your workout routine, the more muscle you can add to your body, the more fat you will burn. Strength training is a great way to tone your muscles so that your body can burn more calories. By building muscle, you can turn your body into a fat-burning machine and help your metabolism run faster. As a result, your body will use the calories that you consume more quickly and efficiently. Cardio is also beneficial, however, strength training makes all the difference!
