Our Guide to Getting Bikini Ready
Memorial Day weekend is almost here, and you know what that means: the unofficial start of summer and the onset of swimsuit season! We put together our ultimate guide to getting bikini ready, so that you can greet the season with a full-body Lancer glow.
If you want to look truly lit from within, you have to start from the inside out. We recommend having a green drink for breakfast each morning to deliver a serious dose of nutrients to your skin. This will help to keep your skin hydrated and healthy while you shed toxins (and possibly pounds). This simple and delicious Lemon-Lime Coconut Refresher is a favorite amongst everyone in our office. To make it, blend the following ingredients together until smooth:
Whether you’re already a Lancer Method devotee or are just starting out, be sure to stick to our Polish, Cleanse, Nourish system, which swimwear designer Melissa Odabash swears by. “I saw results within a week of using the Lancer 3-step Method, which left my skin feeling smoother and rejuvenated – a must-have for a glowing beach-beautiful complexion,” she wrote on her blog. But during swimsuit season, it’s crucial to add a fourth step – full-body exfoliation. You can make an easy at-home scrub by mixing one part grapeseed or avocado oil with two parts white table sugar. This mixture is gentle enough to use everyday and will help to increase circulation, slough off dead skin cells and reduce the appearance of cellulite. In July, we’ll be unveiling the Lancer Body Method for those of you who want a professional grade product for at-home use. (Stay tuned for the launch!)
Of course, sun protection is of the utmost importance during bikini season. Be sure to apply our Sheer Fluid Sun Shield every two hours (or more if you’re swimming or perspiring), wear a sun hat to protect your face and stay in the shade as much as possible.
If you do happen to get singed by the sun, take two 325mg enteric coated aspirin twice daily for two days after your exposure and slather grapeseed oil over the area. Sun exposure can also be helped with the use of our Lift Serum. The plant-based stem cells in the formula help repair damaged skin cells and speed up the healing process. To lock extra moisture into the skin, use a fine mist of purified water between products. This works a little bit like mayo on a sandwich, allowing the products to stick together. And of course, don’t forget to Nourish, Nourish, Nourish!
