5-Step Bikini Prep for a Tropical Vacation

Tropical destinations year round means I always have to be bikini photo shoot ready! I partnered with Gillette to share with you five steps for a beautiful, glowing body under the sun.

Thank you Gillette Venus for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.

Gilette Venus Bikini Precision

1. Gillette Venus Bikini Precision

I have used Gillette Venus products for years and they always have been my number one go to razor. I have been using the Gillette Venus Bikini Precision before every vacation to remove all unwanted hair for flawlessly smooth skin, and it’s now my new favorite. I’ve never felt more confident wearing a cheeky bikini! It has a 90 degree angle head to easily maneuver around every contour and is battery powered for bikini ready skin anytime, anywhere. The pen-sized tool is so easy to control and there are also 2 removable 8mm and 5mm trimming combs, available on Amazon!

2. Bikini Body Guide

Run through Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Guide the month before going on vacation. It incorporates 3 days of cardio with 3 days of strength training exercises, all possible to do at home! The program gives you the definition for a bikini ready body, and the confidence to go along with it.

3. Body butter

Apply a generous amount of body butter to hydrate and moisten your skin. Not only will you avoid embarrassing dry skin in pictures, it will give your body a smooth shining complexion under the sun.

4. Sunscreen

Before you step outside, remember to apply sunscreen all over your body! Wait for your body butter to dry first. The recommended SPF is 30+ and make sure to reapply every 2 hours, especially if you go into the water.

5. Shimmer

For a finishing glow, apply shimmer over your face, chest, and arms. This will make you look tanned and sun-kissed all day!
