Does the idea of stripping down to a bikini fill you with dread? As much fun as the summer is, feeling self-conscious about your body is never nice- and when the weather is warm, those insecurities really can come to the surface. Skimpy summer clothes and swimwear don’t leave much to the imagination, so it’s no wonder the thought of it sends so many of us running for the hills. But don’t fret, there are a few ways you can boost your confidence and get that body bikini ready for this summer.

Lose Weight and/or Tone Up
If you don’t like how you look in a bikini, chances are it’s due to your size or shape. Losing just a few pounds and hitting the gym could be enough to drastically improve how you feel about your body. Avoid the crash diets and crazy workout plans, simply eat clean and do a mixture of cardio and weights to slim and sculpt your figure. If you’re not overweight, don’t forfeit the gym. Toning your muscles and gaining a little definition as well as improving your shape will surely have you feeling more confident when you’re by the pool or at the beach!

Consider a Cosmetic Procedure
Sometimes diet and exercise is enough to give you the appearance you’re after. However, sometimes issues can be a little more stubborn. Maybe after pregnancy or weight loss, you’re left with excess skin? No amount of topical creams, exercise or healthy food will change this, and so a skin removal surgery may need to be considered. If you’re conscious of your breasts, implants or a reduction surgery could be the way to go. If you have stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to diet or exercise, you could look into a laser liposuction procedure. These are useful as you don’t have to go under the knife, so there’s no healing time or risk of infection. And you can remove annoying fat deposits on areas like hips, legs or arms once and for all.

Shop For Flattering Swimwear
The right swimwear is so important and can be the difference between feeling awful and feeling confident. If you’re bigger busted, choose a bikini top with underwiring and which offers support for the best look. If you’re conscious of your legs or bottom, how about boy shorts bikini bottoms or a swim skirt? A tankini or one piece suit would work well if you want to hide your stomach, and a swim dress can hide a multitude of issues and look very flattering.

Get a Tan
Finally, regardless of your shape or size, a tan can make anyone look fantastic! Many people report feeling slimmer when they have a tan, and if you’re very pale, it’s sure to make you look a little healthier when you strip down to your swimwear. Always be sure to tan safely, apply SPF and build it up gradually to avoid burning.

Things People Believe About Feminists (And Why They're Wrong)

When there is a movement, there is always a counter-movement. It happens in microcosm, a response to the mildest of things. If the general agreement in the populace is that a particular song is the best by a particular artist, a secondary group will appear purely for the purpose of disagreeing, of applying contrarian practices.

Since its birth at the turn of the last century, feminism has had plenty of counter movements. It began with essential basics of human rights, such as the right to vote - and people argued against that. Then it moved onto the lives of women, right through second and third wave feminism.

Given that feminism has been around so long, it’s to be expected that there are opponents to it. It just so happens that in the last decade, those opponents have become more and more vocal - arguing back against a world where Beyonce stands in front of a “feminism” banner and women begin to see work towards a more equal society. Here’s the thing that happens; here are the counter…

Five Ways You Can Be The Perfect Pet Owner

Being a dog owner is a lot more responsibility than you might think it is.

Here are some tips to help you out.

Give Them Plenty Of Exercise First of all, it’s important to make sure that your dog gets plenty of exercise. That doesn’t just entail taking them for a walk every now and then - larger dogs will require a long walk of at least an hour twice a day, which is a really significant time commitment and something that you should consider when you’re deciding what sort of dog to adopt. If you don’t have as much time or if your mobility isn’t quite as good, why not go for a smaller dog like a terrier mix or a chihuahua? You’ll still need to make sure that they get out for plenty of exercise but it won’t be as taxing on you.
