Bikini Bod Tips From Alana Blanchard

Alana Blanchard. Oh…what a babe…with a killer bikini bod.

Well lucky for us, the gals at Cos We Can just spent a long time shooting the new Ripcurl My Bikini campaign on Namotu island (swoon), and were able to get the sun kissed ripping goddess to share some health and beauty tips.

Think of it as the little tan, sun kissed, book of tricks.

How to prepare and keep your bikini bod with Alana Blanchard

1: Keep active

Walk wherever you can as often as you can, to get your coffee, to the post office and instead of lying on the beach go for a snorkel or a swim!

2: Drink lots of water

Everyone always says this but it’s a must! I try and drink 3 liters a day – and sometimes more if I’m in really hot places.

3: Eat fruit and veggies

My diet consists predominantly of fruit and veggies, I stay away from processed food and sugars!

4: Be happy and positive

If you get in a downwards spiral it’s not good. There’s a positive in every negative situation – find it and focus on it. It will help you get through the day. Spending a bit of time outside or in nature each day helps with this!!!

5: Use sunscreen

I spend so much time in the sun so sunscreen is really important. But remember to remove your sunscreen at the end of the day as well. If you don’t your pores will get clogged and your skin won’t absorb your moisturizer.

6: Keep everything hydrated: conditioner for your hair, body oil, face cream and lip chap.

When your skin is dehydrated you look older – moisturize to prevent wrinkles and aging.

Thanks Alana. I’m now off to east some fruits and veggies, while drinking water and conditioning my hair.
