How to Rock your Bikini Body

 

Yikes! Summer is nigh and there's bumps on my thigh!

Uhhh ohhh...Telltale signs of too many winter pastries and cakes can no longer be concealed by fabric layering, we're now in the midst of the great unveiling. 

I don't know about you, but I find bikinis terrifying. They can be uncomfortable little, itsy bits of fabric that are supposedly designed to enhance your flawless assets. That's all good when you're a twenty-something Insta star, but if you're a mere mortal AK – (after kids), there's usually some visible collateral damage to deal with. If you're brave enough to venture into a thong, sarongs can be your BFF poolside and at the beach but you've still got to make it to the water's edge virtually naked while your bikini bottoms are inappropriately riding uptown. 

A few years ago I dropped a lot of weight in a couple of weeks. It wasn't intentional by any means. My heart got smashed like an avocado on toast. Overnight my best friend and appetite packed up and disappeared out of town on the horse they rode in on. My world was rocked and my stomach in knots, I couldn't swallow a morsel of anything. 

The result of rapid weight loss isn't great long term. It can play havoc with your metabolism and leave tell tale signs like stretch marks and cellulite but, there are a few key tweaks no matter what your age, that can help to get your bikini body rockin again.

  1. Attitude – You gotta love the skin you're in – FULL STOP! Compare thyself to others and it will do you harm. It's a waste of friggin' time. So start with the little things you love about you, like your eyelashes and toenails and focus on them instead. When on Instagram avoid going down a rabbit hole. Calm your mind and look at soft furnishings and animal pics instead. 
  2. Exercise – Our bodies were designed to move. Mobility is crucial to your health. It's not in our nature to be schlepping around as sedentary bags of flesh. There's a smorgasbord of fun things you can do that are free and won't damage your body long term. So get your heart rate up and shake it baby. 
  3. Fats – Good fats don't make you fat, so get plenty of them in your gullet to keep your hormones balanced and your skin plump and refined. Good fats include nut butters, grass fed butter, coconut oil (lauric acid), avocados, olive oil and flaxseed. 
  4. Sun – While a tan can make you look visibly healthy and create a glow, skin that's been caramelised by the sun means you've caused irreparable damage. Uh hello, that means wrinkles and skin cancer. There are are a tonne of really good, non toxic, non streaking fake tandoori's on the market so use them instead.
  5. Body Brushing – If you could see all the little bits of dead skin flaking off your body, you'd be totally grossed out. A great way to improve your circulation and skin tone is to use a dry body brush prior to getting in the shower. 
  6. Goop – Finally, we have you covered when you uncover. I've made a couple of new organic skin care products for your sexy summer body. They smell good, feel good and they work at targeting skin imperfections and hydration.

Our Bioactive Body Elixir is an exotic infusion of 14 of the world’s most precious, active certified organic oils plus a few amazing Australian native extracts thrown into the mix. It's luxury in a bottle that will have you travelling the globe without leaving your bathroom. Essential fatty acids, phytonutrients and phytoceramides enhance and stimulate cell turnover, elasticity and protect against free radicals. This golden elixir deeply penetrates and restores moisture, creating a luminous, smooth glow to your body. The Elixir teams up with our Bioactive Body Polish to complete the dynamic duo.

 

100% Australian content including: macadamia nut, sandalwood seed, davidson plum, and indigenous oils soften, renew and nourish dull, dry skin. Frankly, there's a tonne of other stuff (coffee and sugar excluded) in this body polish that will enhance skin radiance and impart a youthful glow leaving your skin feeling silky-soft and smooth as a baby's bot.

Both of these products are available today and contain the perfect blend of body-boosting essential oils, botanical extracts and organic ingredients that will be the crowning glory of your organic skin care routine. Using these two natural products will have you bikini ready in next to no time at all.
