This is meant to be your holiday after all, a time to leave your worries and niggles behind. Try our tips that will help you look and feel brilliant on the beach…

1. Embrace YOUR bikini body style

6 ways you CAN feel your best on the beach

You may not feel totally confident in swimwear, especially if having children has changed your body. But remind yourself that your body is a souvenir of your life so far, so it’s nothing to be embarrassed about! Know that your body is unique and beautiful, so try your best to love and appreciate it – after all, it’s been through a lot!

Also remember that a bikini is not mandatory! Wear what you like and what makes you feel comfortable. Seek out skirted swimsuits, or more athletic shapes and modest ranges to find the kind of coverage that is most comfortable for you. Many sports brands, online shops and high street stores are offering alternatives to the usual bikinis and cossies, so try out a few to find the best for you.

2. Wear your skin your way

It can be freeing to let your body hair grow over the winter, but if you feel more comfortable hitting the beach with fuzz-free skin, Venus can help. The Venus Extra Smooth Rose Gold Razor. It has a metal handle, which boosts control, so you can ensure an even, smooth finish. And for easy bikini-line hair removal, try the Gillette Venus Bikini Trimmer which has a unique 90°-angle head to help you manoeuvre around every contour.

3. Sort out the sand situation

6 ways you CAN feel your best on the beach

Sand looks and feels gorgeous, but it has a knack of getting into every nook and cranny. It’s tempting to rinse off in the sea, but then the sand just sticks to you even more! Instead, try sprinkling yourself with baby powder and then brushing it off. The powder helps dry up the moisture that’s making the sand stick to you, so when you brush the powder off, the sand will come with it.

4. Take care of sea-salty hair

6 ways you CAN feel your best on the beach

The drying effects of the sun combined with the salty seawater is enough to send most people’s hair into a panic of frizz and tangles. But this is the perfect excuse to wear a gorgeous summer hat to protect your tresses – and look très chic at the same time!

When you decide to go for a dip, be sure to comb some conditioner through your locks first to help protect them. When you get out, spritz your hair with water to help dilute the salt, and gently detangle with a wide-toothed comb.

5. Protect yourself in the sun

The red lobster look isn’t just painful-looking – burning your skin can cause premature ageing and even skin cancer. So keep yourself topped up with a high SPF. And there’s nothing more glamorous than combining your big sun hat with oversized sunglasses and shading yourself beneath a beach parasol, dahling.

6. Busy your brain with fun

Of course, you’ll forget any inhibitions or insecurities if you’re too busy having a good time. Build sandcastles with the kids, jump through the waves, play football on the sand… Let’s spend this precious time making memories, rather than worrying too much about what we look like.
