Tips for Showing off Your Bikini Bod

Summer is in full swing, which means you must be wearing lighter clothing and outfits that show off more skin. For most people, it also means donning a swimsuit at least once, by the pool or at the beach. Baring your bikini bod can be a nerve wracking affair for many folks. Here are a few tips on how you can lessen your self consciousness and show off your bikini bod with confidence:

Start with Smooth, Flawless Skin

If you’re going to be showing your skin this summer, you’ll need to make sure it is healthy, smooth and flawless. Coastal Skin Solutions, a premier skincare provider, offers a wide variety of non-invasive treatments and procedures to help you achieve your best skin ever. These range from injectables for firm, smooth skin to laser treatments to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or dark marks.

If you have relatively normal skin and don’t have any major skin issues you want to address, you can simply focus on getting your skin as smooth and silky as possible for bikini season. A laser hair removal treatment can help get rid of unwanted hair so your skin will be as smooth as hairless as a baby’s. Laser hair removal treatments make use of laser light energy, which is converted to heat that damages the hair follicles on your skin. This damage prevents or delays future hair growth, so you can enjoy smooth, hairless skin for weeks.

Choose the Right Swimsuit for Your Body Type

People have different body types, so different cuts of clothing may look more or less flattering on them depending on their body type. Choose a swimsuit or bikini that suits your body type best, emphasizing all your best assets, and disguising or hiding your flaws. Colors and prints also matter, as they can make you look heavier or slimmer depending on the colors and patterns you choose.

Still, even if you find a swimsuit in a cut recommended for your body type, and in a flattering color or print, none of it means anything if you feel uncomfortable or self conscious wearing it. Confidence is key to showing off your bikini bod. Remember that most people won’t even notice your flaws; they aren’t paying attention, and repeat that to yourself until you feel less self conscious. That said, do choose a swimsuit or bikini that you can freely and easily move around in without worrying about straps coming undone or accidentally being exposed.

Get a Tan

If you’ve been working out and want to show off your gains, a strategically placed tan can highlight and emphasize your muscle tone and definition. If, on the other hand, you aren’t as fit as you would like to be, a tan can also make you look slimmer and leaner.

Self tanners can be tricky to apply, and result in a streaky, uneven mess if not done properly, so be sure to invest in a good tanning product and follow the instructions carefully for good, natural-looking results.

To summarize, focus on skincare and getting your skin to its best condition, highlight your assets, deemphasize your flaws, and relax! Don’t worry too much about what other people might think, just be confident and be yourself.
