Summer is a great time to get up to try out a new look or style and give yourself a makeover. Even if you did not begin these activities immediately when summer rolled around, you still have time. Midsummer is a great time as any to get some makeovers done, so you are happy and confident. Here are a few examples of ways you can give yourself a makeover this summer.
Start a New Workout Routine
While it may feel a bit too late to start working towards a “summer body,” you still have many more seasons to look good. Getting a new workout routine will help boost your confidence as well, and you can rock upcoming trends easily. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, swimming is the fourth most popular activity or sport in the U.S. You can incorporate activities that you enjoy so that it doesn’t feel like a drag when it’s time to get active.
Get Shiny Hair
With a few simple beauty treatments, you can get that perfect head of hair that you envy on hair models. A keratin treatment is an easy way to get frizz-free hair for at least four months. You can use an over-the-counter remedy or go natural. A popular treatment that you can probably do immediately with ingredients already in your kitchen is applying mayonnaise, olive, or canola oil and then wrapping your head first with plastic wrap, and then a towel. When you wash your hair after about ten minutes, you will have lively, gorgeous hair that will last the rest of summer.
Dress Like You’re on Vacation (Even If You’re Not)
The pandemic gave rise to a number of travel restrictions that affected a lot of people in one way or another. This does not have to put a damper on your vacation spirit, however, because you can always enact a trip or go on one virtually. With California being the fourth-largest producer of wine in the world after France, Spain, and Italy, you could choose that as your faux holiday destination. You can shop online for some nice looks and aim for discounts while at it. Get some gorgeous outfits that you would wear on that trip, and imagine you are there, probably with some bottles of wine to complete the feeling!
Get a Pedicure
When your toes look good, you feel good and a pedicure is the easiest way to give you a tidy look. Make sure to exfoliate and use moisturizer to avoid unsightly scaling. If unsure of the color to go for, note that red will never be out of fashion so you can always fall back on it. With pretty, well-made toes, you will look great whether you’re stuck in your house with flip-flops or you’re going on an impromptu grocery run.
Consider Treatments You’ve Been Putting Off
There are many beauty treatments you can go for to get a make-over equivalent, from your skin and hair to your lips and teeth. You can moisturize your face using honey and avocado, or tone naturally with the magical apple cider vinegar. Scrub your lips to slough off the dead skin and leave them feeling soft and supple, and whiten your teeth or straighten them with a quick visit to your dentist which will be well worth the money. If you want a great fix for aligning your teeth, you can try Invisalign, which has a patient satisfaction rate of over 96%.
While the past few seasons have gone by in a blur for most people, things are slowly but surely getting back to a new form of normal. A beauty treatment is the best way to make sure you look great post-quarantine, and with the many options available, you cannot miss something that you need. Go for a treatment that will get you ready and confident enough to step out into the world.
