Confidence is what it’s about if you want to have a carefree-summer in shorts, a tank top, or even a bikini or going shirtless. However, putting on a tight swimsuit can make anybody feel vulnerable and insecure, male or female. If you want to beat your insecurities before a day at Bradenton Beach in Florida, then you need to be prepared and ready for your time in the sun. Here are a few pieces of advice you can use to feel great in the summer and look confidently great!
The first thing that needs to be done is to find the right swimsuit. It has to fit right. No matter how it looks, if it doesn’t fit right, then you’re not going to be anywhere near as comfortable or confident in it as you should be. A great idea, if you’re up for it, and if you’re lucky enough to have one, is taking an honest friend along with you when you go shopping, provided you taste their trust.
Make sure your feet are treated well too. A good pair of sandals can keep your soles and toes from beach debris and hot sand. One pro tip is taking along some baby powder because a sprinkle of that can brush sand right off of your skin.
Pack your bag with confidence. Anything can happen on the beach, so a waterproof bag can help out if splashing gets out of hand or you’re closer to the waves then you might figure. A first-aid kit is a great idea, and girls and women might want to pack along discreet and dependable items like tampons. Anyone can benefit from having an umbrella along in case of wind or if sunburn just gets to be too much.
One thing that everyone has to have when visiting Bradenton Beach or any other is having some sun sense. No one likes getting burned, and it’s really easy to avoid. Most dermatologists suggest the use of waterproof sunscreens that have SPF 30 or more. Reapply as necessary. Sunglasses are also great, but also fashionable. Pick a pair that looks great but also absorbs a minimum of 90 percent of all the UV sunlight. Even if you pack a small rain umbrella, a big beach umbrella is great for cool shade and being a visual marker friends can use to find you. A great hat also keeps skin and hair from getting burned.
Be sure to bring lots of water or sports drinks. That might seem counterintuitive with the ocean in front of you, but the saltwater is not for drinking. You need water to stay hydrated, and even more, if you go running up the beach or playing volleyball.
Whether it’s you and friends, you and family, or just you and a date, an afternoon at the beach is a great way to get some sun and fun. It can also ruin your health and even your self-esteem if you’re not dressed right or have packed the right things.
