You work hard, now it’s time to play hard; by visiting the beach and enjoying the sun, sand, and company of friends and family. Who knows you may even meet someone you like and are physically attracted to while you’re walking the beach. If only it were that easy because many women are quite self-conscious about; how they look and if they have what it takes to grab the attention of people they want to. Getting the confidence to show your body is bikini ready, and in skimpy swimwear feels like an uphill battle at times. Even if you have an athletic figure and you work out regularly, sometimes your mind plays tricks on you, and you begin to raise the standard of what you should or shouldn’t look like. There are certainly some things you can do as a foundation from which to build up your self-esteem from.

Sexy bouncy skin
The models we see on television and in magazines weren’t born like the unicorns they are made to look like; they’re human too. Not everybody has wonderfully healthy looking skin and in fact, to get that glowing look, it takes time and persistence. Our skin is the largest organ of our body, and it’s quite a volatile environment. The pores are trying to secrete sweat, so we stay cool, while the skin is also trying to stay protected by covering itself with natural oils. These oils do protect us from harm, such as the sun and chemical irritants up to an extent. They also swirl around the dirt and bacteria on the surface. After a shower, rub some cocoa butter or coconut lotion on your skin, to quickly replenish your skin with nutrients. The more you do this, the clearer and bouncier looking skin you’ll get.

Contrary to popular belief, yes, women are hairy. Of course, not nearly as much as men, but the female body does have thin and short hairs all over the body; we are mammals after all. When you’re going to the beach, you’ll be wearing a bikini, and thus these hairs will be out in the open. The most pooling and growth of bodily hair for women is around the private parts, the legs and armpits. You can shave your legs and armpits quite easily at home or anywhere in private really. Yet, for the bikini line, it’s a little more complicated because that area is sensitive. It’s wise not to use a shaver, but rather a pick of bikini trimmers. They have blades that are behind a guard, so you don’t cut yourself, but they still slice the hair at close proximity. Read through these reviews carefully and you’ll get an in-depth review of the pros and cons of each brand and product.
The two most important things when you’re going to the beach; is to be confident in your own skin and prepare ahead of time. Make moisturizing your skin with the added aim of clearing your skin as part of your routine; especially after showering. It’s okay not to be as smooth as a baby’s bottom ‘naturally’ since human beings biologically grow hair all over our bodies. For the extra bit of confidence in your bikini; trim your hair. Wherever you want to not be so self-consumed with how you might appear to the guys sharing the beach with you.
