After a long period of hibernation, as women there are certain things we need to get done before we're "beach ready." Hair needs to be removed, skin needs to be exfoliated, feet need to be pampered. These are the beauty treatments you just have to get done before you go out and face the world in your tiny bikini this summer...

With the change in weather the world is going to see a lot more of your feet. Whether you're kickin' it inflip flops or chilling out with toes buried in the sand, people are going to be seeing those heels and toes. Why not get them looking beautiful and eye catching before that happens?

I know what you're thinking, why tan yourselfwhen the sun is going to be out all summer? Well, if you're anything like me, then during the winter you develop what I like to call a case of the "pasty whites" and you'll need a good base before going out into the real sunlight or you'll burn like never before. Five minutes every other day for a month and you'll be beautifully bronzed before you even take your first step in the sand.

We all know what it's like for women in the winter, we wear long pants and sometimes we go a few days without shaving our legs... for warmth of course. So by the time summer rolls around, certain areas need a little attention before you can go out and face the world. So go, wax those legs, underarms and bikini line then put on that bikini and lounge about for a bit.

Sometimes you have to get dirty to get clean! Mud baths are not only relaxing, they also make your skin incredibly soft. That and they remind you of having fun as a kid, playing in mud puddles in the back yard. So go ahead and take a dip, and you'll notice a difference.
7. Hair Cut and Style

If you're anything like me,haircuts are done based on whim and they're very unexpected. But, even I like to get a new one on the first day of summer. Even if you just add a few more layers, making your hair lighter and cutting off those fried ends is a great way to kick off a new season. And get some highlights, too, while you're at it!
Well ladies, these are the beauty treatments I do at the beginning of every summer, but what are some of your summer beauty rituals? Is there something else I should add to my list? Something I should take off? Let me know down below!
