How to Make Your Body Prom Dress Ready - Articles Surfing
A beautiful prom dress deserves a beautiful body to carry it. Toned muscles, soft skin, and luscious hair all play a key role in your prom night beauty. Even if you have a designer prom dress that fits like a dream, you will still be displaying parts of your body that must be ready to accept the attention. Nothing makes a designer prom dress more beautiful and more perfectly fitted than healthy skin, hair, and muscles. Read on to learn how to shape, tone, and treat your body to make it worthy of your glamorous prom dress.
The first step toward a beautiful body is general fitness. Physical fitness tends to have beneficial effects on nearly every aspect of your body. With a proper amount of physical activity and good nutrition, your skin should be glowing, and your hair will be healthy and strong. Your back and shoulders will also look sexy and toned if you are wearing a strapless or backless prom dress.
You do not need to devote your life to the gym or submit to a starvation diet to achieve an appropriate level of physical fitness. Simply be sure that you are accomplishing a moderate amount of physical activity throughout your day (approximately one hour per day for teenagers) and eating foods that are high in nutritional value and low in sugar and fat. The occasional sweet treat will not kill you, but a fast food diet just might.
To help you achieve your desired amount of physical fitness, decide a couple of months before your prom what type of prom dress you would like to wear. Keep a picture of this dress in your mind as you work to slim and tone the areas of your body the dress will highlight. Do not forget to target your triceps, as these muscles are often ignored by common aerobic exercises and are generally featured by most prom dresses. On prom night, you will look toned, healthy, and beautiful. Plus, you will probably be able to outlast your date on the dance floor!
For the right look, your prom dress will also require soft, sexy skin. To achieve a feminine glow on the day of your prom, be sure to exfoliate with a face and body scrub before stepping into the shower. Massage the exfoliant into your skin and then rinse it off. You will emerge with baby soft skin that will be a fabulous complement to your prom dress.
For silky smooth legs, slather on some shaving cream in the bath or shower and shave against the grain of your hair with a brand new, sharp razor. Before toweling off, rub a body oil or lotion all over your skin. The dampness and heat from the shower will help your skin absorb the moisture and glow with life.
Once you put on your prom dress for the night, apply a body lotion with shimmer wherever your skin is revealed. The shimmer will catch the light and make you the star of the night. For a healthy glow in your face, apply a small amount of cream blush to the apples of your cheeks and seal it with an illuminating powder. Your skin will be soft, fresh, and inviting.
To give yourself healthy, shiny hair to match your beautiful dress, be sure to wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo the day before the prom. The shampoo will give your hair more body and allow the conditioner to penetrate more thoroughly for sleek smoothness. Apply a deep conditioner to your hair and let it set in for at least 10 minutes. While rinsing, work the conditioner through your hair with a wide-toothed comb for even application. If you have thin or limp hair, spray a volumizing solution on the roots while your hair is wet for extra hold.
If you plan to curl your hair or wear an updo on prom night, leave your hair unwashed on the day of the prom. Slightly dirty hair will hold your style better. Once you style your hair, spray the finished product with some gloss for a light-catching shine. Your hair will be beautiful, healthy, and a perfect addition to your prom dress.
On prom night, you should be prepared to show off not only your prom dress, but your body, as well. Taking some time to tone and beautify yourself will inevitably result in a striking, attention-grabbing appearance at the prom.
