Getting Bikini Body Ready – Without Dieting!


At this time of year, many of us are putting pressure on ourselves to lose weight and tone up ready to hit the beach. This often leads to restrictive crash diets, over-exercising and getting injured, lower confidence, mood swings and unsustainable results. The good news is losing weight certainly isn’t the only way to get bikini body ready. In fact, it’s possibly the least effective and least important of all of the things that you should be doing to get ready to strip off on the beach this summer. Here’s a look at some ways that you can get bikini body ready without dieting. 

Conquer Bloating

Many people lose weight only to find that their bellies look rounder than ever before. This is typically due to bloating, which is also linked to tiredness and low confidence. Dieting is great for weight loss, but it doesn’t necessarily help with bloating and fatigue. In fact, losing weight quickly can actually increase bloat and fatigueInstead of simply losing weight, look at how to help with bloating and fatigue and bloating and weightless. You’ll find that bloating fatigue is linked to what you eat and drink, and not just how much. Things like cutting alcohol and fizzy drinks, reducing sugar intake, and maintaining good gut health can help you to feel more alert, more toned, and more confident on the beach. 

Develop a Summer Skincare Routine

Good skincare can help you to glow on the beach while reducing spots and oiliness, preventing sunburn, and easing dry skin. Make sure you are exfoliating, massaging, moisturising, and cleansing, and that you are using appropriate products for your skin type. In the summer it’s also worth applying a high-SPF sunscreen, even when it looks cloudy. 

Work on Your Confidence

One thing that stops us from feeling good in our swimwear, no matter what size we are, is a lack of confidence. Exercise, creative hobbies, and time with positive people can all help you to feel better.

Improve Your Posture

Good posture can make you look a size smaller, and more toned and muscular, without having to lose a pound. Yoga, swimming, and walking are all exercises that can help build good core strength and support good posture, but the simple act of checking yourself and making adjustments throughout the day can also help to make correct posture a habit. 

Get Some Exercise

Exercise will help you to tone up and look great on the beach. But it can also improve confidence and mental health, decrease bloating, improve your posture, and even boost blood flow which can improve skin tone. If you hate the idea of going to the gym, something as simple as a 30-minute evening walk can make a big difference. 

Go Shopping

We all look better when we wear things that fit well, offer support, and suit our body shape and this is especially true when it comes to our swimwear. Take some time to find the right bikini and you’ll look and feel better wearing it. 

Of course, if you are overweight or unhappy with your body shape, you can diet to help you to feel better on the beach, just make sure you don’t neglect the other important elements of a healthy bikini body and mind.
