We often have women ask us what they can do to prep for their upcoming boudoir shoot so we have compiled a list of tips to follow to ensure your are ready for your shoot. If you want to get really serious, you can start practicing these tips well in advance but 48 hours is a good amount of prep time to get your skin and body looking fabulous! Enjoy!
1. Shave, Wax or Au Natural!
Whatever you choose, be sure to plan in advance to avoid any irritation. We are whizzes at Photoshop, but if you look good, you feel good and it will shine through in your photos.
These miracle pills will help iron out any excess gas or bloating which means a sleeker and slimmer figure.
3. Say Good Bye to Sodium, Alcohol and Carbs
These three culprits will bloat you like there is no tomorrow, so be sure to steer clear of both before your shoot. That being said, having a glass of wine or champagne right before your shoot to loosen you up is okay and you can feast on some carbs right after!
5. Eat Green
Eating green before your shoot will not only make you feel good on the inside but it can also trick you into thinking you are a lot healthier than you are (even if you are just doing it for the 48 hours). You will have more energy, feel happier and slimmer!
We cannot stress this point enough. Make water your best friend! In fact, you should always be drinking water because it will help make your skin appear flawless and help combat water retention. If you think water is "boring" try a squeeze of lemon or lime to spice things up!
Beauty sleep is not some made up tale, it is a serious fact of life! Sleep has a huge affect on your skin and how you look, so be sure to catch up on your rest and even treat yourself to some extra zzz's right before your shoot.
8. Get Active
Doing a bit of exercise right before your shoot can make your muscles pop so take some time to do a few push ups and planks to get the blood flowing.
