How to Look & Feel Good This Summer

Keeping Fit

Avoiding exercise in the winter months is easy. Setting foot outside in temperatures below zero is a guaranteed way to get you scurrying back into bed. However, as the air becomes warmer and as the sun shines down on you, it’s time to get your exercise routine back into shape. No matter what you decide to do, be it going for a jog in the morning, or having a daily swim, exercise is good for your muscles and helps you lose weight. You will begin to feel and look better as summer sets in, giving you the perfect opportunity to dress in those style-conscious designs by Alfred Dunner. Exercise gives you the confidence to show off your well-toned body to the world.

Look After Your Summer Skin

Look After Your Summer Skin

As you enjoy the sunny weather, your summer outfits will leave your skin exposed. Ensure you layer on plenty of sunscreens as the heat sets in. Not only does it protect your skin, but it acts as a moisturizer as well. This keeps your skin looking and feeling fresh. Your body loses a lot of water on a daily basis, and the summer months are guaranteed to leave you feeling dehydrated. Dehydration makes your skin look parched and dry. Drink plenty of water to hydrate yourself, ensuring your skin maintains its healthy glow. Make sure you eat healthily as well. Summer is a great time for eating seasonal fruits such as peaches, apricots, melons, and nectarines. Not only do they taste good, but they contain all the essential nutrients and vitamins for your skin’s complexion.

Wear Clothes That Suit You

Wear Clothes That Suit You

No matter what you intend to wear this summer, wear clothes that look and feel good on your body. Outfits come in and out of fashion. Wear something you are happy to be seen in, according to your taste and body shape. Wearing the right thing for you will help you feel confident. It will give you a new spring in your step when you walk from the plane or head out of your front door.

Remember Your Feet

Remember Your Summer Footwear

Normally covered up during the winter months, your feet are going to be exposed in the summer. It’s likely that you will choose to wear sandals and flip-flops. Whether you are in your backyard or visiting new areas at your chosen holiday destinations, make sure your feet look good. You can protect them from the sun with added sunscreen to avoid unpleasant redness.

Give yourself a pedicure, too, and try new nail polish colors on each of your toes. We usually keep our feet hidden from others, but if the rest of you is looking good in the sun, your feet should too!
