A Day at the BEACH

WooHoo, June is here and it is time to hit the beach. I thought I would talk a little about how to feel my best at the beach, even if I have to be prancing around in a swimsuit. I don’t know too many people who feel their most confident while rocking a swimsuit. With all the great swimwear, coverups, and great beauty products, we can all feel beautiful, even if we didn’t make it to the gym as much as we had hoped!

There are many things we can do before our feet hit the sand to help boost our confidence, one of them is looking for the perfect swimwear that make you feel sexy and secure.

Let’s talk swimsuits! I am loving this swimsuit, and can I add that it is under $25. I thought I would give it a shot for the price, and I am happy I did because both the quality and fit are AWESOME!. One pieces are having a moment and that makes me very happy. Being covered up when I am yelling and chasing Mason around the beach is probably best for EVERYONE, am I right? Who has had a swimsuit malfunction? I have come pretty close, and that is why having a swimsuit that fits properly is vital.

Confidence and swimsuits are two words I usually don’t use in the same sentence. When you’re searching for the perfect suit, get the one that makes you feel the most confident. Try not to worry about trends. I search for a swimsuit that fits right, looks great and showcases my assets (unfortunantly my ass aint one of them)! Maybe you love a suit, but just don’t feel confident showing that much skin. There are so many great shawls and coverups now a days that it will not be hard to find your pefect beach day look!

Now, lets talk about a few other things that can help make you feel a little more confident strutting your stuff in a swimsuit this summer. Too much sun is bad for your skin, we all know that. With all the great products on the market, you don’t need to sunbath to have that golden bronze look. Million Dollar tan is one of my favorite selftanners, and ummm SayHello2Sexylegs is a leg bronzer that I have quickly fallen in love with. They have the contour stick, tinted glow gel and the illuminating fluid. They go on easily without any transfer, and smell amazing. They are also available at Sephora!

What are some other important items for a day at the beach? Waterproof mascara. I know it is a pain to get off, but no one looks cute with raccoon eyes (I promise). I also wear a sunhat, of course. ¬†Exposing your skin to the sun can be harmful and lead to premature aging and wrinkles. The next one I know I probably don’t need to say because I hope you already wear this religiously, SUNSCREEN! If I could give you one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it! Wear your sunscreen!(quoted from the song sunscreen of course)

Last and certainly not least, a day at the beach leaves me dry and dehydrated, so lather that lotion! Both on your body and on your hair! A good deep conditioner is vital for these summer months. Did you know the sun can do damage to your hair as well? It most certainly can, so make sure you are giving it some extra lovin’!

So lets go over a fully loaded and locked beach bag: a fun towel, water (alot of it), SUNSCREEN, cute sunhat, a magazine and your favorite  swimsuit. However, rememeber there are plenty of things you can do to help you feel and look your best before you leave your house. Let me know your beach essentials. See you at the beach, ladies!
