The spring sunshine is finally coming back out to play (hurray!). Yet whilst some of us warmly welcome her return, prematurely baring the flesh in true British nature, many shudder with fear at the thought of stripping off the layers.
The first beach strip-down is never easy and feeling self-conscious is normal. However over thinking your insecurities will make getting in that swimsuit far scarier than it needs to be. So here at Cloud 9 we say to grab the bull by the horns and get body confident! Whether it be cellulite, scars, acne or eczema, don’t let your skin or body issues hold you back.
Top tips to help you learn to love the skin you’re in:
Healthiness is happiness. We’ve all been told the benefits of an active lifestyle and healthy diet a thousand times over, but it can have tremendous results on your skin. Eating well and exercising regularly can prevent cellulite, so you won’t have a problem getting in those teeny-weeny bikini bottoms.
Laughter is the best medicine, and what’s more it’s infectious! A lot of skin conditions flare up when you’re stressed, so take a break, relax and smile. Because nothing is more beautiful than happiness.
Don’t suffer in silence.
Get it off your chest. Talking to a friend can help you feel much better about your insecurities and help you realise that everybody suffers from self-consciousness. A good friend will shower you with compliments until you have no choice but to love your skin.
You are the one and only
Remember you are totally unique and that is something to celebrate. Everyone is individual and despite what you may think, there is no right or wrong way to look.
We offer some fantastic skin solutions in the Cloud 9 Skin Solutions range, but we also say the solution can start with you!
