Every year, we spend all winter dreaming of a beach vacation. White sand, blue sea, bright sunlight and golden tan. Ah, this is what dreams are called.
Just after Christmas, we hit the gym again, spending hours finding the right skincare routine and hoping to look as beautiful as Beyoncé within six months.
And before you know it, summer will be here.
Oh, what happened to my fitness plan? there is no time!
Yes, this happens to me every year, so I quickly found some ways to fake the perfect beach body.
1. Max Cleavage Bikini – I can’t tell you how many people I’ve converted to a Max Cleavage bikini. They always thank me as if I had shared the secret of eternal life. Although the name may sound a little risqué, these bikinis are gorgeous. As the name suggests, it enhances the bust and fits perfectly. This summer I had the Cherry Pie Bikini and I absolutely love it.
2. P20 Sun Cream (Look for it in Primark for a little cheaper) I love this once-a-day sun cream. It lasts 10 hours while active and I haven’t had a burn once since I started using it.
3. Caty Sunny – I’m drooling over Thierry Lasry’s Black Orgasmy Sunny right now.
4. Pureology Sea Kissed Texturizer (Feel Unique is the best price I’ve found) I love the entire Pureology hair care line, but it’s expensive. If I had to buy just one thing for my hair, I would choose the Sea Kissed Texturizer. Gives you beachy waves without the drying effect of a sea salt splash. Just spray, comb through your hair, and you’re good to go.
5. Fake-baked tanning lotion
(It’s much cheaper if you buy it from Amazon.) Fake Bake has been my secret weapon and go-to tan for almost a decade. I’m not good at doing other tans and always end up looking like a striped Ampa Loompa, but you can’t go wrong with Fake Bake.
When you tan, you instantly look like you’ve lost a few pounds and generally feel healthier and sexier. Skip that pasty look and fake it for the first few days of your vacation. Your knees, ankles, and wrists are always the most prone to sunburn, so be careful not to get sunburned.
