Good news: it’s not too late to get that summer body!

Looking to boost your body confidence this summer? Try these four post-winter tips! 

Put down the junk food!

Time to start eating healthily again. Lean protein, healthy fats, complex carbs – you know the drill. Add plenty of sleep and water, and you’ll be well on your way to summer sexiness. 

Get moving 

It’s insane how unfit you feel after just a few days of not training. And if those few days have turned into weeks or months, summer is going to be one painful season. Get up and get active now, and you’ll make a big difference to your fitness and energy levels. No marathons needed – just a gym class here and there, a walk with friends or a hike. The sooner you start, the better.  

Bronze it up 

After months of being covered up, your skin is bound to look a little pasty and lacklustre. That’s the bad news. The good news is that a spray tan can help give you a perfect sun-kissed summer look and help hide any flaws as well. If you’re not confident of your self-tan skills, go to a professional and watch the kilos fall away as your body becomes more contoured. 

Give it up for the one-piece 

There aren’t many places to hide in a swimming costume, but if you’re not feeling bikini-ready come summer, ditch the two-piece for a flattering all-in-one. Gone are the days of dowdy one-pieces – these days they’re just as sexy as their string bikini counterparts and can be hugely slimming, too. Hallelujah!
