When the countdown to summer starts, we all want to get the most perfect beach body to look great in swimsuit and other summer clothes. It’s not just about a slender body and ideal shape, it’s also about beautiful skin, perfect bikini line, and armpits. You can get the body of your dreams if you follow 8 simple but very effective tips.
For oily facial skin, you can boil cornflower, parsley, or rosemary in water, let it cool, and wipe your face with this “tea”. As for dry skin, you can do the same but with chamomile. Sensitive body skin will feel better with water-based, soothing products that include ingredients like chamomile, calendula, or aloe. Dry skin demands petrolatum- or oil-based cosmetics since they’re good at retaining moisture. Oily skin needs gel- or water-based moisturizers. As for normal skin, choose a light, non-greasy lotion.
If you need to get rid of dark areas around your bikini line, you should always moisturize after showering. You can use special lotions that not only help prevent darkening of the skin down there but also prevent ingrown hairs.
Lie on your back with your legs stretched out straight. Hold the exercise ball above your head with your arms stretched out as well. Then lower your arms so that the ball is above your chest. At the same time, bring your legs up to meet the ball. Grab the ball between your ankles and bring your legs back down to the floor. Your arms and legs should remain straight the whole time and your lower back shouldn’t leave the floor. Do 10 of these ball-exchanges regularly for a flat, toned tummy in no time.
The Dead Bug exercise works your core, a.k.a. your front, sides, and back muscles. And that’s exactly where muffin-top fat likes to sit. Double criss-cross exercise works your upper and lower abs as well as your obliques. Keep doing it regularly, and you’ll have a beautiful slimmer midsection.
The glutes are the biggest muscle group in the body. Training these muscles will not only make your bottom nice and fit, it’ll also help you lose weight faster overall.
Along with working out, a healthy diet is also an important part of getting your body in shape.
