Summer is on its way, bringing to mind sunny times by the water, outdoor barbecues, and lots of pool days—whether out and about or at home. However, during the cooler months, most of us are likely to have put our fitness plans and maybe even skincare routines on the back burner. Now’s the time to get ready for the sunny season! In addition to CoolSculpting®, which our Charleston, SC, practice highly recommends for fat reduction, there are some other ways you can ensure you look photo-ready next time you have to get into a bathing suit or cutoff shorts.
Upgrade Your Workout Regimen
Kicking your workouts up a notch can be the key to finally losing those extra pounds from winter and gaining the body shape you want. Try focusing on exercises to target your shoulders for “tank top arms” and tighten up your core to see a major difference. Combine exercise with a body contouring treatment for even better results.
Trouble spots: We all have them, and they never seem to go away. From that extra cushioning on your stomach to bat wings under the arms, back flab, or love handles, even the slimmest person may struggle with at least one of these areas. When you’ve got into shape at the gym but can’t seem to reduce one or two stubborn spots, CoolSculpting® can help. The non-surgical procedure takes your body contouring to the next level by targeting small pockets of isolated fat. It can be applied to almost any body area for focused, gradual reduction in volume.
Try a New Hairstyle
Nothing says “new you” like a fresh haircut to complement your recently toned body. Getting in shape is a perfect opportunity to trim long, drab locks and get rid of split ends, as well as to groom and reduce unwanted body hair while you’re at it. A chic hairstyle or color can also draw attention away from areas that make you feel self-conscious.
Make Your Skin Look Great
Before getting out your swimwear, remember to give your skin some extra love. Exfoliation is always a good idea—and be sure to boost your Vitamin C intake!
