Tips to Feel Confident Bikini Confident

Wearing a bikini is something some women dread but strongly desire. In a bikini, they may be self-conscious about unwanted body hair and appearing bloated. However, if you’re worried about being in a bikini, we have some tips to help you feel more confident and two-piece swimsuit ready. And one of those just will include permanent hair removal in NY.

Avoid Bloat-Causing Foods

Do you stress over your weight and have a tummy pouch or love handles? While eating an overabundance of sugary and high-carb foods can pack on the pounds, what you ingest may also contribute to bloating.

Especially within a few days of debuting your bikini body, try to avoid foods that enhance bloating. For instance, although your body needs a certain amount of salt, too much can contribute to bloating. For one, excess sodium intake causes water retention. This ultimately will make you look bigger than you are. It doesn’t help that the fluid retention is often in your abdominal region.

Although beans are a good source of protein, they can lead to bloating. In addition to the protein, beans contain sugars called alpha-galactosides. These sugars bypass normal digestion, and healthy flora in the intestines break them down. As a result, beans may cause bloating in some people. If you’re going out in a bikini in the next few days, try eating quinoa, whole grains, or a meat source of protein instead.

Lentils are revered as a wonder food. They’re rich in healthy carbohydrates, fiber, and protein. Since they have high fiber content, particularly in those not used to eating many of these indigestible carbohydrates, lentils can lead to bloating in some people.

Other foods and drinks you may want to avoid right before wearing a two-piece bathing suit include the following:

  • Carbonated beverages
  • Broccoli
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Alcohol

Another way to reduce and combat bloating is to drink enough water. As a general rule, drink about 11.5 cups of water each day.

Stop Worrying About What Others Think

While it might not be easy, don’t worry about what everyone else thinks about you. Instead, rock what you feel comfortable and confident in. Chalk up the negative comments to jealousy, and do what feels right for you. Go out and enjoy a margarita on the beach in a bikini or run around with your toddler at the pool. Stop worrying and just start loving life.

One way to start this is by catching yourself thinking negatively or worrying about what others are thinking. Change your thoughts to something positive immediately. Or just merely immerse yourself in whatever activity you’re participating in.

Choose Easy Breezy Pieces

Rather than wearing something flashy, opt for a laid-back look. Choose one that’s a solid color that may have a high waist. Opt for something with a skirt to hide any imperfections on your thighs. The goal of wearing an easy breezy bathing suit is to choose something simple. Often, all the patterns, fancy buckles, and other flashy elements draw attention to places you don’t want people to notice.

Wear Sunscreen

A severe burn that requires medical treatment or causes you not to be able to sit down comfortably for the next few days can ruin your time outside. It also can increase self-consciousness and prevent you from being able to go out in the sun again for a while.

Therefore, lather on some sunscreen whenever you’re going out into the sun, whether in a bikini or not. Apply a generous, even coat across your skin, and make sure you don’t miss any spots. Choose a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. This provides adequate protection for your skin to prevent burns and reduce your risk of developing skin cancer in the future.

Select a waterproof sunscreen if you’re going in the water in your bikini. Since these only hold up for a designated time, reapply them as necessary.

Go for Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Consider laser hair removal treatment if you’re serious about looking your best in a bikini. Permanent hair removal in NY can boost your confidence in a bikini. You won’t have to worry about little patches of hair being seen. You can feel less self-conscious about going to the beach, pool, lake, or other location where you’ll show off your bikini body.

Besides feeling better about yourself, you won’t have to worry about all the grooming and maintenance required with hair removal after a visit to a practitioner for laser hair removal. This can save you time and hassle. In the long run, it can save money when you don’t have to fret over reordering razors, wax strips, shave gel, or any other necessary hair removal products. Other benefits include the following:

Removes Hair Painlessly

Razor rash burns. And a cut with a razor also hurts. Let’s not even get started with the pain of waxing. You don’t have to contend with any of that with laser hair removal. By opting for this treatment, you’ll have little to no hair and barely notice the practitioner performing the procedure. Today’s lasers are designed to cause little to no pain and often have a cooling device. Plus, if you have any concerns about pain, ask your practitioner about using a numbing agent before the procedure.

Is Affordable

The price of permanent hair removal in NY may be less than you think. For one, the size of the treatment area affects the cost. So if you’re getting a small area done, such as your armpits or bikini line, you’ll only pay for that region and the time spent. Even the cost of larger areas, like your back or legs, is affordable when considering the price of grooming products.

Is Suitable for Every Skin and Hair Type

Fortunately, it doesn’t matter what tone or texture of skin or hair type you have. Laser hair removal is an option. Although your skin tone and hair color/type will affect the results, everyone is a candidate for the procedure. The only people we recommend not receiving it are those with certain skin problems.

Provides Long-Lasting Results

The results of laser hair removal are long-lasting. Some people see permanent results. You may require touch-ups now and then, but it’s much less often than any other standard removal technique.

Target Problem Areas with CoolSculpting®

If you have problematic areas with a bit of excess fat that diet and exercise won’t effectively target, consider a CoolSculpting® treatment. Some possible treatment areas include the abdomen, hips, thighs, and lower back. It’s most suitable for people at a target weight but needs some help. Fortunately, it provides a range of benefits, including the following:

Natural-Looking Results

Because it’s not intended for weight loss, especially for dramatic results, CoolSculpting®’s effects look natural. Nobody will know that fantastic bikini body you have required any “outside help.”

Simple and Quick

Unlike surgery, CoolSculpting® is simple and quick. You won’t be in the medical office for hours and waiting a minimum of an hour before you can leave. Although the length of your session depends on the size of the treatment area, most people are only in the office for 30 minutes to an hour. And while the number of sessions varies, most people tend only to need between one and six treatments.


This isn’t a surgical procedure, so it requires no incisions. Instead, CoolSculptiing uses an applicator that emits cold, never severing the skin. For this reason, you won’t have to worry about wound care or infection developing at the site.

Because it’s non-invasive, you may resume your activities after the procedure without downtime. You may resume work or household duties immediately after the procedure. We encourage patients to stay active after the procedure to help break down fat cells.

Long-Lasting Results

The results of CoolSculpting® are long-lasting. They’re indefinite since it permanently “kills” the fat cells. The results will last for years if you maintain a healthy weight by eating healthily and exercising regularly. You can then have the beach body this year, next, and many more to come.

We’d like to note that if you happen to gain weight and lose the results, you can come to the office and have the procedure done again.

You can have the bikini body that you’re proud to show off with a few helpful tips. It can be as simple as changing your diet or attitude. And truthfully, even CoolSculpting® or permanent hair removal in NY is simple for the patient.
