How to Boost Your Beach-Body Confidence This Summer

I’d like to thank Skintimate® Shave Gel for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Do you know what my kids love to do, more than anything in this world? They love it more than ice cream, new toys and video games.

It’s spending time with me.

It doesn’t matter what we’re doing or where we’re doing it, my kids just love those moments that we’re adventuring together. It works out really well, since my favorite thing to do is spend time with them!

Needless to say, I’m not letting anything stand in my way of having the best summer ever with my kids. Definitely not any lingering worries about not looking like a supermodel in my bathing suit!

Guess what, ladies? We’re all uniquely beautiful. Every single one of us. It’s so important that we start embracing that uniqueness, owning our beauty and focusing on what’s truly important. The quality time we spend out there splashing in the ocean with our families!

With that in mind, it’s not like I don’t want to feel confident, comfortable and beautiful when I’m on the beach. I do. I definitely do!

Luckily, there are a few simple steps that we can all take to help us feel and look our best.

It actually starts at home, before you slip on the suit and before your feet hit the sand. One of my best beauty secrets (not a secret, really, but I treasure it!) is shaving with Skintimate® Shave Gel.

Skintimate® Shave Gel is always a must before I’m hitting the beach. I love the way it moisturizes my legs, and it helps me see where I’ve shaved. No one wants to miss a spot when they’re headed to the pool or the beach!

In fact, I’m really meticulous about getting a perfect shave before I put on my swimsuit and Skintimate® Shave Gel makes it so easy. It leaves my legs looking smooth and healthy, and that gives me such a boost of confidence when I’m hitting the beach with my family.

Speaking of swimsuits, the one you choose can make all the difference in how you look and feel. Choose a supportive suit that compliments your unique figure. We’re all shaped a little differently, so you may need to try on a few to find out which cut hugs your body the right way.

When you find a suit that makes you feel comfortable and confident, that’s the one! Practicing good posture when you’re trying on suits and while you’re wearing one at the beach is also important. It’s really incredible how much our appearance can shift when we’re standing up tall and straight!

If you’re like me and you still feel a little iffy about showing a lot of skin, regardless of how amazing your suit looks, then you may want to invest in a few key accessories. When I’m not swimming I love to use a cute, flowy coverup to wrap around my waist. I love that it helps define my waist and gives me a little coverage, while still letting my glowing, healthy legs peek through as I walk.

I’m also a huge fan of big, trendy, floppy hats at the beach and a great pair of sunglasses. It makes me feel like I’m more put-together and definitely helps give me a boost of confidence.

I hope that my simple tips for boosting your beach body confidence will give you some inspiration to get out there and JUMP IN with both feet this summer and every day! :)
