Preparing for beach season starts at different times for different people. For some, it starts in a gym several months before summer, while for others, it starts right on the beach by hiding extra pounds in the sand. Turns out, there are much easier ways to look stunning on the beach no matter how beach-ready you feel!
1. Correct angles and filters for photos
Beach photos are a great opportunity to demonstrate the amazing parts of your body and hide its imperfections by choosing the right poses and angles. Therefore, to look stunning, you should make some effort here as well. For example, it’s better to keep your chin up when posing for a photo to prevent a dark spot from the shadow on your neck making you look neckless. Moreover, you shouldn’t take photos with your legs placed too wide because it will make your silhouette look wider too.
We recommend that you look through different bloggers’ pages before visiting the beach. They will give you some great inspiration on how to take great photos. Don’t forget about the filters on your mobile phone, they can do wonders.
Beach season is the perfect time to not only show the world how stunning you look, but to also have some time to sit back and relax. And if you keep the latter in mind, the preparation for this long-awaited season will bring you the most satisfaction.
2. Proper footwear
Beach footwear also possesses the magic of illusion. To make your legs look longer and slimmer, you should opt for wedge sandals. But it’s better to avoid footwear with straps, laces and other frills on the ankle area. These elements visually cut off and shorten your legs. Flat thong sandals create an illusion of a smaller foot, while flip-flops make your feet look bigger. At the same time, your ankle will look thinner.
The towel that you are going to use for sunbathing on the beach can also help to create necessary visual effects. To look slimmer, it’s better to use a big, wide, long towel.
To keep your belly as flat as possible, you shouldn’t eat too much before going to the beach. Secondly, you should avoid products that cause bloating. Products like peas, cabbage, corn, pretzels, crackers, sausages, as well as carbonated drinks and ice cocktails with fruit syrups can all make you bloat. While cold sugary drinks are incredibly appealing in hot weather, they have one major disadvantage: due to their high sugar content, they give the body a quick boost of energy and just as quickly drop your energy level down, leaving you with feelings of fatigue and exhaustion.
It’s better to drink water and snack on nuts and fruit. Nuts can make you feel full when eaten in small amounts and fruit can be refreshing on a hot, sunny day. It’s better to eat bananas, watermelon, and citrus fruit. Try to stay away from apples, pears, grapes, and dried fruit because they can cause gas.
Rounded shoulders and backs always go hand in hand with protruding tummies and sides. Even people who don’t carry extra weight tend to get them once they slouch. Conversely, a straight back helps to correct and enhance breasts and the lower part of your waist. That’s why you should always remember to hold the right kind of posture when visiting the beach.
6. Spray tan
The pale color of your skin can stand out alongside the tanned bodies at the beach, putting way too much attention on you. A spray tan or cream can help to solve the issue and make your body look slimmer. It also gives your skin the advantage of being moisturized. Thanks to this cosmetic tool, your skin will look smoother, which is ideal for a woman’s hip area. You should apply the spray tan or cream several days before visiting the beach.
