How to Get Ready for Summer

The summer is just around the corner. With it comes the possibilities of nicer weather and better freedoms, as the vaccination campaign in the USA keeps on rolling out relatively efficiently. Yet under the lockdown you may have found yourself wearing away a bit, meaning that you are probably in need of a few tips in order to truly get ready for and make the most of the summer months. Read on now for four crucial tips. 

Resurface Your Pool

When the summer rolls around and you want to re-use your pool after months of neglect, you will probably have to get it resurfaced. You might think that you simply have to accept the cost that the firm you have contacted give you, but this is not necessarily the case. When looking for pool resurfacing Mount Dora-based companies, you have a lot of leeway in getting a contract that works for your budget. 

Buy Reliable Sunscreen

It’s not summer if you’re not playing out in the sun, but the sun can be pretty unforgiving to the skin and eyes. Ultraviolet rays can cause premature aging, skin damage, eye damage, and skin cancer. That’s why experts recommend applying a generous amount of broad spectrum sunscreen on the face and body before going out in the sun and reapplying some every two hours if you’re outside. Make sure to get a broad spectrum sunscreen with at least 30 SPF for reliable sun protection.

Buy New Clothes 

Like many people, you may have not put much effort into your clothes recently. After all, you were not going anywhere, so there was no point in looking good. However, now you have the opportunity to truly stand out before you go to meet your friends and family. Ditch the jeans and tracksuits for shorts and skirts, buy a cap to protect yourself from the sun, and wear light t-shirts so you can protect against sweating too much. If you feel like you are going to look or feel uncomfortable, then it is probably time for you to: 

Hit the Gym

A lot of people have put on weight during the pandemic, so maybe it is also time for you to start a new diet and to lift some weights in order to work that extra fat off. By “hitting the gym”, this does not necessarily mean actually getting a gym membership. You can work out from home by buying the necessary exercise gear, or you can simply decide to run or walk more. By setting yourself a small daily target, you will be surprised by how beach-ready your body will be by the time that the summer months have rolled around; allowing you to fit into your new shorts, skirts, swimming trunks or bikini with absolute ease. 

Get a Haircut

Now is the time to make sure that your hair also looks the part. However, haircuts, especially for women, can be expensive. This is definitely true if you go to a hairdresser more than once a month. Perhaps think about either cutting your own hair — definitely free — or volunteering to be part of a student haircut class. While the results may not be as impressive as going to a celebrity style hair salon, imagine how you will feel having basically had your hair cut for free. This does not necessarily have to be just for you either — the same can go for any dog, cat or other pet that you might own that might need grooming every few months or so.
