Although there are still a couple of months to go, the summer of 2016 is coming sooner than you might think! However, it is not the type of season you may cover your body in multiple layers and pretend that everything is ok with your skin underneath. What you need right now is the right swimwear for the summer and making your skin summer ready.

How to get your skin ready for this summer

Before putting your new bikini on there is still a plenty of things to be done to make your skin fit enough for embracing the summer of 2016.

First of all, you should think about incorporating a healthy lifestyle at least couple of months before summer and sticking to it. Basically, you should eat more versatile food, with an emphasis on food rich in protein and vitamins which will leave your skin glowing and healthy.

Secondly, think about hydration. Yes, we all have issues with dry and dull skin after winter but that does not simply mean it should stay like that all year long. Invest in serums that will nourish your skin and eat lots of fruits and vegetables. And what is the most important – always carry a bottle of water with you wherever you may go! Not only will your skin be hydrated, you will at the same time be attacking the cellulite. Grab that bottle.
Thirdly, you need to protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays and do that in the long run! Apply sunscreen often during the day and wear protective sunglasses. This year the choice of eyewear is better than ever! I will definitely go for nailing my outfit with the black aviators. However, if there is stil something you would like to change about your skin and protect it even more, you should consider having a treatment. I was devastated by the newly discovered wrinkles and horrified by those sings of aging, when a friend recommended to me laser genesis. My face looked amazing and the skin was rejuvenated and ready for the summer last year. The procedure increased collagen in my skin which was a perfect preparation for the forthcoming summer.

Finally, you should schedule getting your excess hair waxed. Not only will you remove the hair you do not want to have, but you will treat your skin perfectly and remove the dead cells. Wait no longer and move on to choosing the right swimwear as you already have the perfect skin.

Is there anything to hide?

First of all, think in the terms of your figure. Is there anything that you would rather leave hidden or fixed a bit? If so, go for tummy-slimming monokinis which will elongate your figure and boost your self-confidence. In addition to that, think about the kind of support you need. What you need is something to lift your breast up and provide you with a great support. You are lucky, because this year’s trends are brimming with such pieces!

Mix and match

Forget about matching top and bottoms, this year we are going adaptable. Instead of using the same print, let’s broaden our possibilities with opposite top and bottom part of the bikini and combine them separately with other items. When it comes to convertibility, you should consider choosing reversible Caribbean cut bikini bottoms.

Black or white?

If you are in doubt which colour should you opt for this season, then there is actually the only trendy choice to go for black and white. Use the combination of geometric lines and bold swimsuit in these colours. If you are considering spicing things up even more, then you should search for a banded black and white swimsuit to rock that sexy beach look.

The time is now – summer is coming soon and you need to instantly embark on getting your skin summer ready as well as your swimming suit. Nourish and rejuvenate your skin so that you can slip into the perfect swimwear you have always wanted and discovered in this year’s trends.
