When the warm weather arrives it’s finally a chance to get outdoors, enjoy nature and have fun in the sunshine. However summer can bring significant stress if you’re a little insecure about the way you look. During the winter it’s easy to hide under layers, but that’s not really an option on a scorching day. Don’t let your insecurities hold you back, here’s how you can boost your confidence and have a carefree summer.
Summer is great motivation to get in shape, so if you’ve been planning on losing some weight then this is the perfect opportunity to do so. Forget crash diets, not only are they unhealthy but you’re guaranteed to gain the weight back afterwards. Instead, focus on cleaning up your diet. Use a tracking app like MyFitnessPal to keep an eye on calories and make sure you’re giving your body all the nutrients it needs. Hitting the gym or taking up a new sport will help you to burn excess calories as well as sculpt and shape the body. Not only will you feel fitter and healthier for summer but you’ll look great in your summer wardrobe too. You will lose excess weight, tone up and even reduce bloating and puffiness from water retention. When you’re eating a lot of salt and sugar you body can hold on to this, so simply cleaning up your diet and losing this ‘water weight’ will have you feeling slimmer and more defined. Considering a cosmetic procedure could be an option if it’s not possible to get the figure you want from diet and exercise. Loose skin for example will only tighten up to some extent, the rest would need to be removed surgically. Breasts aren’t likely to develop any more tissue after the age of about nineteen, so if you want a fuller chest then surgery is one option to consider. Some surgeons can offer a fat transfer into breast meaning you lose fat on the body and gain mass in the chest at the same time. Which is ideal for many women!

Regardless of your shape and size, the right clothes are essential for looking and feeling good. Find items that fit you well and are comfortable to wear. You don’t have to be a slave to trends to look good, for example if trendy crop tops or tiny hot pants don’t suit your figure or style then skip them for something else. Nicely cut dresses will suit just about every figure, you have the option of pairing them up with leggings on a cooler day or just worn alone when it’s very warm.
Many people report feeling like the look healthier and slimmer with a bit of a tan, and so if you’re a little self conscious in your summer wardrobe why not try this? Don’t fry yourself and damage your skin, there are great false tanners that give a natural look without risking sun damage. When you are out in the sun, be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen.
