June 15, 2018

With summer officially around the corner, the pressure to get beach ready is on. Let us tell you girl, the struggle is real! To give you a helping hand, the experts at HIDDEN HQ have put together their top tips to achieve #beachbodygoals.

Drink Up



Sometimes there can be so many conflicting opinions on an aspect of health that it’s hard to see the wood through the trees -  water is one of these subjects. Yes, whether the thirst-quenching liquid causes bloating has split opinion. The truth is it does quite the opposite. Lack of water actually causing your body to retain liquid under the skin, creating a bloated look. So our advice is to drink up girl!



Get Your 40 Winks


You may not think it, but sleep plays a very important role. In fact, getting the recommended 6 to 8 hours a night can help your body process food faster and more efficiently. We mean, any excuse to sleep more is a plus to us!



Mix It Up



It’s not rocket science. If you’re a regular gym-goer and are not seeing the results you want, then mix it up!  Adding a combination of cardio and weight training to your exercise routine is sure to help you not only shift those extra pounds but also tone your body too. Why not take advantage of the summer and take a bike ride or cross country run as a form of cardio.



Cut Out Alcohol



This might be one of the hardest challenges for us party girls, but it’s a must. Cutting out alcohol can make a huge difference when you’re trying to achieve the perfect beach body. Alcohol not only dehydrates the body but also causes boating - which is not a good look! Cutting out the booze for a month before your vacay can guarantee you’re looking your best for the beach.


Trade In Your Flip Flops



We all know a classic flip-flop is a girl’s best friend on the beach. However, it may not be the most flattering shoe for all your hard work. Instead, opt for a wedge sandal. Still practical and seasonal, the wedge sandal has the added benefit of elongating the legs. This sneaky trick can help you seem taller and slimmer in one easy step, what’s not to love?
