How to Start Preparing for Summer

Yes, I know that it’s only February. But I LOVE Summer. My whole year revolves around it. I’m on the swim team and I hang out at the pool constantly! It’s the only time I get to see a lot of my friends who don’t go to my school and we have the BEST times! I have 89 days left until my last day of school, May 25. I’ve literally been counting down since the 180’s.

This summer’s also important to me because, being a Junior, this is the last summer I’ll ever have where I can look forward to going back to high school. The summer after this it’ll be all college preparation. Soooo, here’s how you can start getting ready for Summer… in Winter.

#1 Getting in shape

Almost everyone gains a few pounds over the Winter after the holidays and bad weather. Even if you don’t start a hard-core work out, a few crunches every day will help you get your bikini body. Or you can look at my post about fun ways to get in shape :)

#2 Lotion

I put lotion on my skin every morning and night anyway, but if you don’t, you can start now to have your skin soft and radiant by summer.

#3 Tanning

Not everyone likes tanning, but some people do, so I thought I’d put it on here. If you don’t already go to a tanning bed, you’ll have to work into it slowly, so it wouldn’t hurt to start now. Personally, I just wait until Spring and start laying out in the sun to get a natural tan. It’s still not great for your skin, but its what I do. You can buy sun screen that has a low spf level and still lets you tan.

#4 Picking out your bathing suit

I know its a little early for this one because most stores haven’t even put them out yet, but everytime I go shopping, I walk past the bathing suits to start getting ideas for what kind I want this year.

#5 Shaving/ tweezing

A lot of people think this is gross, but I don’t shave my legs very often in the winter unless I know people are going to be seeing my legs. I always wear jeans or sweat pants because here in Ohio it gets pretty cold, much too cold to be wearing shorts at least. But in the beginning of Spring time I start shaving my legs again so they’ll be soft for summer.
I think the tweezing part is just something I do, but I always tweeze my eyebrows a little thinner in the summer. So I start doing that in the spring also to get my eyebrows ready for it.

Thanks for reading! Comment and let me know what you think! :)
