Swimsuit season is right around the corner! Even though we’re sure you look perfect now, re-evaluating your current diet and making small changes won’t hurt you. Especially if you want to lose a few pounds, tone-up, or clear up your skin before your first beach outing.

Below are a few things you should start doing now to ensure a you look  your best this Summer!

1. Commit to a Skincare Regime

Not 100% happy with your skin a the moment? Now’s a good time to commit to a skincare regime. Start each day with a light cleanser, a hydrating toner, and a moisturizer that contains at least SPF 15.  At night, consider adding a serum and a night cream that’s meant for your skin type.

If you’re suffering from acne or eczema, now’s a good time to make a dermatologist appointment.

2. Lose the Sugar

Sugar is literally the devil. It’s terrible for you! Stop drinking soda, avoid adding sugar to your coffee, and cut back on the candy. Whenever you start craving something sweet or unhealthy, have a piece of fruit or drink a cup of tea. We love the Extra Strength Slim Me tea from Zhena’s!

This green tea is formulated with ingredients to help aid your weight loss.

– African Mango Seed and Green Coffee Extract provide energy for your workout, while simultaneously jump starting your metabolism.

– Senna Extract, Dandelion, Juniper, Burdock and Milk Thistle can help cleanse your system and reduce excess water weight.

– Garcinia and Raspberry Ketones are natural fat-burning and appetite suppressing ingredients that can give your diet that extra push.

I love drinking the Cranberry Ginger right after breakfast and the Raspberry Mint right before a workout or as a dessert replacement.

3. Workout and Eat Right

If you want to lose weight or get fit, there’s no shortcut. You need to be honest with yourself about what you’re eating and start working out.

Do some kind of cardio three times a week for 30 minutes, lift weights, and eat clean. If you don’t know where to start, follow these six accounts on Instagram for inspiration:

4. Get into Yoga

Yoga has the ability to change your life if you give the right kind a chance. It can relieve stress, give you muscle definition, and make you lean. Try Vinyasa or Hot yoga at your local studio or gym!

5. Drink Enough Water

Constantly being dehydrated could be the root of all your problems: dry skin, fine lines, bloating, headaches, weight gain, fatigue…

Drink two liters of H2o a day and you’ll be glowing by the time June hits!

6. Be Consistent

Eating right, drinking tea, working out, and drinking water won’t solve all your problems and transform your body over night. You must be consistent!
