So you’ve booked your flights and hotel, put in your time off request at work, now what? It’s time to start scheduling your beauty appointments and planning your pre-vacation beauty routine!
1. Get Beach Body Ready
There are so many different ways you can get beach body ready; depending on your body type, personal preference, and how much time you have before your vacation. Here at Dr. Connie Hiers Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we offer both surgical and non-surgical procedures to help you achieve your body aesthetic goals. Check our monthly specials to see how you can save money, and schedule your consultation today. If you choose the surgical option, be sure to allow enough time for healing before you leave for your vacation. Alongside any procedures, consider a gentle exercise routine and a healthy detox filled with plenty of proteins and vegetables to help you feel your best at the beach.
2. Find Your Perfect Swimsuit
Part of feeling beautiful at the beach can be boiled down to the swimsuit you’re wearing. Treat yourself to a flattering swimsuit for an extra boost of confidence. Hot brands right now include Tropic of C, a swimwear brand created by Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel, Hunza G, a legendary brand worn by Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, and Triangl, a popular swimsuit brand worn by models and influencers.
3. Get a Facial
Wearing a full face of makeup at the beach isn’t ideal – you will likely sweat it off anyway, and it may cause your pores to get clogged and your skin to break out. Getting a facial before your vacation can help you achieve a clear, glowing complexion, which means you can feel beautiful at the beach with minimal or no makeup. Our Medical Aestheticians, Gayle Wills and Victoria Wilson, are passionate about skin and offer a range of special and personalized services. Check our special monthly offers for great savings!
4. Get a Manicure & Pedicure
A fresh mani and pedi is the best beach accessory. Consider a gel treatment if you prefer a more natural look, or acrylics if you want to create the appearance of longer, stronger nails. Whether you prefer neutral colors, bright colors or fun nail art – there is a style for every taste!
5. Hair Removal
Skip the razors – shaving can cause rashes, irritation, and bumps, and the hair grows back so fast. Consider a bikini wax instead so you don’t have to worry about hair removal on your vacation. Be sure to schedule this appointment no later than two days before, as swelling and redness may occur and you’ll need to allow time for healing. Consider laser hair removal if you have the budget!
6. Pack Your Beauty Products
Be sure to pack your favorite beauty products, not only to help you feel beautiful at the beach, but also to help protect your skin and hair from the harmful rays of the sun. We offer a wide range of different ZO Skin Health products, including sunscreen to protect your skin from dark spots, wrinkles and sun damage. Be sure to stop by and chat with our medical aestheticians who would be more than happy to recommend products suitable for your personal needs.
Now the preparation is complete, you should be filled with confidence and ready to hit the beach! Now it’s time to relax, unwind and enjoy yourself. Order a pina colada, soak up the sun (make sure you’re wearing SPF to protect your skin) and have yourself a wonderful beach vacation.
