Sexy in the Summertime:
Summer. Sweat. Sunburns. How can you be and feel sexy during the summer when you contending with heat exhaustion and mosquito bites?
1.) Sunscreen and Bug Spray
First is protect yourself from the evils of sunlight and vampire insects. Everyone wants a golden tan, but it is not worth the sunburns and skin cancer. Sunscreen is a necessity. If you must be tan for the summer, spray it on—along with some bug spray to keep away the buzzing biters.
2.) Embrace your body type
We all want to look like swimsuit models, especially during swimsuit season. Unfortunately, not all of us have the media ideal body type. All women are real women, but real women come in all shapes and sizes—skinny, curvy, chubby, big, small, tall, short, and many more.
So love the body that you’re in. You have to in order to feel sexy. It doesn’t matter how many people or how many times someone compliments you, you won’t believe it unless you feel sexy.
3.) Exercise and Stay Hydrated
One way to feel sexy is to work out. Even if you have no desire to change how your body looks, working out can help maintain your current body, as well as boost hormones that will make you feel happier and more confident. Confidence will make you feel sexy no matter your size.
But when exercising, indoors or outdoors, remember to stay hydrated. This is needed year-round, but during the warmest months of the year it is especially important to keep your body fueled with extra water. It keeps you cool, and replenishes the water you lose from sweating.
4.) Dress Up
Another way to feel sexy is to dress sexy. It is hot in the summer so don’t be afraid to show some (sunscreen-covered) skin. Wear that croptop that’s been waiting in your closet, cut your old jeans into new shorts, jog in a sportsbra.
Still, showing skin is not the sole way to be sexy. If you’re more comfortable covered up, then a flowy maxidress or peasantskirt is equally sexy as a croptop and bootyshorts.
5.) Hair and Makeup
Finally, to feel sexy, you may feel like doing your hair and makeup. Though this is not necessary to be sexy, it can give you an extra boost if your conception of ‘sexy’ involves perfect locks and long eyelashes.
Summer makes makeup a pain so try water-resistant makeup and bring touch up materials with you in your purse, just in case you need to reapply foundation you’ve sweat off. Also, spray or gel your hair so it doesn’t frizz up in the heat, an carry spray to keep your hair looking on-point, as well.
All in all, regardless of what you wear, whether you work out, and what you look like, you can be sexy. Sexiness is an aura—not a size, or a color, or a hair style. With confidence, anyone can exude the aura of feeling and looking sexy.
