With all this beautiful spring weather we’ve been having lately, I’m totally pumped for summer! Bring on the shorts, the cotton dresses and the swimsuits! Oh wait… Hmmm, not quite ready to show off that much skin yet? No worries! Here’s what I recommend to snap yourself into gear for all the nakedness!
1. Tighten Up Loose Winter Skin
Got a saggy jawline? Tighten up your neck area and jawline with Sculpt Secret Facial Sculpting Serum. This product’s nifty little breakthrough IsoSculpt Complex mixes Seaweed Extract with a few other botanicals that help reduce the appearance of that double chin.
Get a defined jawline, contoured cheekbones and tighter neck area in just 2 weeks with this miracle serum. It will shave pounds and years off your appearance and have you ready for the beach in no time!

2. Cover Up Lumps & Bumps
If your body is less than perfect and you don’t have time to work on it, don’t skip the beach altogether! Hide those lumps and bumps with a fashionable swimsuit. Figleaves.com has a nice selection affordable swimsuits for every body shape including shaping swimwear that will slim your figure and flatter your curves.
I also recommend checking out our List of The Best Swimsuits To Hide Post-Partum Bellies featuring swimwear from Fit 4 U swimwear line.
3. Get Beachy, Wavy Hair The Easy Way
If your hair is really straight, just run a few pumps of Infusion Keratin Replenisher ($40) through freshly washed, damp hair and put it into a braid or two. Let your hair air dry completely and then gently unbraid hair to reveal perfect beachy waves!
For those of you blessed with naturally curly hair, just use a combination of Vita Volume Boosting Foam ($25) and Glowtion Potion Styling Oil ($29) in freshly washed, damp hair before twisting sections into tight ringlets. Secure ringlets while air drying with a few bobby pins, then shake through for natural, beach-ready waves. The Glowtion Potion will eliminate frizz and add gorgeous shine, while Vita Volume adds definition, volume, and hold to the curls all day long.

4. Jump Start Your Diet With A Cleanse
While a full on cleanse isn’t for everyone, this 1 day cleanse is so easy, I know you can handle it! The Glow Bio Cleanse is expertly designed for you by celebrity nutritionist Kimberly Snyder. Her 1 day cleanse will have you feeling great (and glowing!) and ready to take on the world! Or at least a new diet anyway… The Glow Bio Cleanse isn’t about forcing your body into starvation mode like some cleanses do. Instead, the goal is to help you gently rebuild your digestive system while empowering you to achieve sustainable results by getting on track to a healthier lifestyle.
I had the opportunity to try this cleanse and the drinks are excellent! I never felt hungry or “starved” while drinking the juices and smoothies in the Glow Bio Cleanse. After reading all about the cleanse on her website, I am so impressed with how she builds each bottle to have the best ingredient combination to achieve specific results. This cleanse is so nutritious and the perfect way to jump start a new diet or lifestyle this summer!

5. Fake It Till Ya Make It!
After hiding in the house for the last 6 months, I look like a ghost! If you live in New England (or a similar cold place) you probably haven’t seen sunshine for months wither! Don’t head for the tanning booth just yet though… You can get a sun kissed glow without damaging your skin with Josie Maran Bronzing Argan Moisturizer. This quick-drying moisturizer is infused with Josie’s signature ingredient, Argan Oil! Instantly get a streak-free, natural-looking tan by applying once daily to clean, exfoliated skin. It will leave your skin enriched with the anti-aging, vitamin-rich properties of Argan oil plus a gorgeous color you won’t want to hide.
