As the days get shorter and the weather begins to decline, it’s important to start preparing yourself for the long winter months. Whether it’s ensuring your skin is ready to face those harmful UV rays on the ski slopes, or investing in a new pair of beautiful FELLA Swimmers for your winter getaway, below is a list of 6 simple ways of getting yourself prepared for winter.
- Up your Exercise Routine
If you’ve let your exercise routine slip slightly during the hot summer months then now is the time to start upping your fitness game again. In order to achieve the body you’ve always dreamed of, you’ll have to be motivated and plan ahead. Having an exercise regime already in place during the holiday months will help you stay on track.
If you find going to the gym difficult, there are many home workout routines that are perfect for getting that bikini body, without paying for an expensive gym membership. If you’re new to the whole workout scene, start slowly incorporating daily exercises such as walking or steady jogging into your routine. This way when summer finally comes back around, you’ll be fighting fit.
- Update your Swimsuit
Exposing your body might be the last thing on your mind at the moment, but updating your swimsuit collection before your winter getaway to some tropical location is essential. Having the perfect swimsuit can really make you look and feel fabulous as you lounge around the pool and soak up the sun. When looking for the perfect swimsuit this year, consider your individual body type, and which cuts or styles of swimwear will accentuate your best features.
- Get a Skin Check
It’s important to stay safe in the sun, no matter what time of year it is. It’s always a good idea to book in and have your skin checked by a professional. Skin cancer can often be treated when it is found in its early stages, and this is why regularly checking for skin cancer is so important. Many places now offer these services, and may also offer bulk billing, meaning there is no excuse to not have any questionable freckles or moles looked at.
- Fight the Fuzz
If left untreated, unwanted body hair can make anyone frustrated. Now is the best time to look into methods for fighting the fuzz. There are a number of ways of removing unwanted body hair, meaning there is always an option that suits you. Whether it’s waxing, plucking, shaving or even laser hair removal, preparing your body now will make all the difference come next summer.

- Hydrate your Skin
Your skin can become dry and damaged throughout the cold winter months, so it’s wise to ensure it’s properly hydrated. One of the best ways to reduce the risk of scaly limbs is to make sure you are drinking plenty of water (around 2 litres a day), and ensure you moisturize your skin after showering or bathing. It’s also wise to invest in good quality sun protection for your skin, which will ensure it stays soft, healthy and protected year round.
- Get the Glow
It’s hard to lay out in the sun during the winter, so if you want to sport a tan, you’ll have to find alternative means. One of the safest ways of achieving that perfect bronzed look is by using fake tan. Whether you decide to buy one of the many self-tan products that are available in stores, or book into your local salon, getting that sexy glow has never been easier. One of the main benefits of fake tan is that you can achieve that summer glow that will let you feel comfortable and sexy no matter what time of year it is.
Following the above points should make preparing for this winter a simple task. Prior preparation and forward planning should hopefully be all you need to to make these coming winter months even more enjoyable.
