You may not think it, but there are actually a lot of different things that you need to do in order to get ready for summer. When getting yourself prepared for the summer months, starting early is key. Have you ever heard of the saying “summer bodies are made in winter”? Well, this isn’t just talking about your weight in particular and making sure you are toned and ready to hit the beach in that brand new high waisted thong bikini you just bought.

There are a number of other aspects that you need to consider when ensuring that you are as ready as possible for summer. If you start getting ready for summer before it hits, then you know you are gearing yourself up to hopefully have one of the best summers ever. But before you can go out living your best life and having a great summer, there are a few things you need to do first.

So, have a read on below at how to best get ready for summer:

 

Your Makeup

If you plan to be out and about a lot in summer, you may very well get a nice tan. As your skin changes color, there is something else you need to think of, your makeup. You need to think about whether your current foundation and other products you put on your face are going to match the makeup. Another aspect you need to think of is the heavy-ness of the makeup, summer is hot and you don’t want to clog your pores and end up breaking out!

 

Exfoliation

In summer it is hot, so you are probably going to be wearing a lot less clothes then you did in the colder months, that means more skin exposure, and you want to ensure that the skin on your whole body is looking on point, and that means you need to look after it properly and exfoliating is a good option. Exfoliating helps to scrub of those layers of dead skin and helps your skin better absorb any moisturising products you put on it.

 

Deodorant

Due to the fact that summer is a lot hotter then other seasons, you are probably going to be sweating more, and that means you may have to change you deodorant to something a little bit stronger, no one likes to smell bad! Have a look around for a good quality deodorant for you to try; there are a lot of natural deodorants that can offer something a bit different.

 

Skin Care

Your skin tends to have different needs in winter then it does in summer. So, it is a good time to reevaluate your skincare routine and change things up so you are betting preparing your skin for the summer days that you have ahead. As well as this, it is important that if you are going to be spending some time in the sun, you wear sunscreen, there is certainly nothing worse then having to try to cover up a sunburn, not to mention how painful and damaging it can be to your skin.

 

Feet

Something that you may just have been potentially ignoring for a few months now. This is because in cooler months you are always wearing enclosed shoes, so no one really ever sees your feet. But this is all going to change in summer when the thongs and sandals all come out to play. It could be a good idea to stop off at a beautician and get them to whip your feet back into shape for summer.
