With a little preparation, you can boost your confidence and unabashedly sport your sexy swimsuit, be it beachside or poolside. Here are a few quick tried-and-true tricks to make your skin, hair and body look like you're ready for the tropics in a matter of moments.
Exfoliate for Soft and Supple Skin
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, leaving your complexion with a fresher appearance. The process gives you a good base with which to shave, wax, moisturize and tan. Exfoliating is a must if you like to use a self-tanner – the color stays on longer and looks more even when it's applied on fresh skin.
Exfoliating scrubs are available at the drugstore or you can whip up your own, using sugar or salt. For a moisturizing effect, combine the exfoliating agent with a little olive oil and/or honey before applying it to skin.
