Tips Best Summer Body
The South Florida beaches are bustling year-round, but they will become even more crowded next month as we welcome the official start to summer. Are you feeling confident about your body and ready to slip into a bikini and hit the sand? If not, try these tips, compiled by the Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeons at South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery.
Flush Out Fat
First, up your cardio routine and get your sweat on. Experts agree that the best way to fight fat is with high-intensity interval training (HIIT), in which you alternate between intense bursts of activity and less-intense activity or rest. For example, alternate one-minute bursts of sprinting with two minutes of walking, and repeat that cycle five times in 15 minutes. Or, if you’re not crazy about running, substitute your favorite cardio alternative, such as cycling or swimming.
Also, make sure you’re hydrating properly. Drinking a lot of water throughout the day will fill you up, give you energy for your workouts and — although it may seem counterintuitive — flush water weight.
Eliminate Unwanted Hair
Let’s be honest: hair removal is a thankless task, but virtually unavoidable during bikini season. Laser hair removal permanently destroys hair follicles and prevents you from having to regularly shave, wax or tweeze areas of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal can be used on the legs, underarms, bikini line or face. Depending on the treatment area, a series of appointments may be necessary. Contact our practice today to learn more!
Get Your Glow On
A tanned body looks toned and beautiful. However, there’s nothing pretty about risking skin cancer from exposure to the sun or tanning bed. Build up a vibrant tan using at-home self-tanning products like lotions or sprays. Or, look for salons that offer “Mystic Tan” in your area, and have a professional apply your spray tan.
Shop for a New Bikini
Perhaps the reason you’re not bikini-ready isn’t necessarily your body or confidence — it’s that you don’t yet have the perfect swimsuit! Spend a few hours browsing your favorite mall or online stores for a couple new options. Pick a style that flatters your best features: your butt, breasts, legs or tummy. Then, treat yourself to a cute cover-up and pair of sandals to complement your bikini.
Consider Cosmetic Enhancement
