Christmas In July: 5 Ways To Treat Yourself This Summer


Christmas In July: 5 Ways To Treat Yourself This Summer

Christmas in July is the perfect time to give yourself a mid-year treat. While the holiday season in December often comes with its own set of stresses and obligations, Christmas in July is all about relaxation, fun, and self-care.


It’s a chance to break free from the everyday grind, indulge in some well-deserved pampering, and celebrate the spirit of giving—to yourself! 


Whether you’re looking to refresh your look, enhance your well-being, or enjoy a little me time, these ideas form Barbie's Beauty Bits will help you make the most of Christmas in July.


Beauty And Health Are Connected (Though Many Don't Realize It!)

Health and beauty are inextricably linked and often overlooked, so we mention this first. Feeling good about yourself improves your mood, boosts your confidence, and benefits your health in countless ways.


Think of it this way: On a plane, you're instructed to wear your oxygen mask before helping others. Self-care is like that oxygen mask. By prioritizing your well-being, you're better equipped to care for yourself and those around you.


Remember, self-care isn't selfish; it's the foundation for a healthier, happier, and more beautiful you.

Here are five fabulous ways to treat yourself and make this summer extra special.


Unwrap A New You With A Summer Hair Refresh

Your hairstyle can have a major impact on your appearance, boosting your style and confidence. Choosing the right hairstyle can significantly affect how you look and feel.


Forget spending hours on a complicated style that wilts in the sun. Clip-in hair extensions are your secret weapon for effortless summer hair.


Clip-in extensions are also the perfect way to experiment with different hair lengths, volumes, and colors without damaging your natural hair. They are a great temporary option, allowing you to change up your hair color, add waves one day, and fun highlights the next. 


Plus, they save time - clip them in for a glamorous style in minutes. With clip-in extensions, you can have perfect hair anytime without the summer heat meltdown!



Consider Cosmetic Surgery

Sometimes, diet and exercise might not give you the results you crave. Maybe stubborn baby weight lingers, or you desire a more sculpted look. That's where cosmetic surgery can be a powerful tool for boosting confidence. While it's not for everyone, it can offer transformative results.


Imagine feeling amazing in your favorite outfit or rocking a swimsuit with zero self-consciousness. Procedures like tummy tucks can help achieve that sculpted look you dream of.


Learn more about tummy tucks (and other options!) at, but remember, feeling fantastic about yourself is what truly matters.


Gift Your Skin A Summer Glow

With all the sun, sand, and heat, summer can be tough on your skin. Invest in a high-quality skincare routine this July to keep your skin hydrated and protected.

It's More Than Just Beauty

Healthy skin isn't just about looks; it's self-care! Glowing skin boosts confidence and makes you feel amazing.


Unwrap Flawless Skin

  • Double Cleanse: This Korean secret removes makeup, sunscreen, and dirt. Oil cleanse first, then follow with a gentle water-based cleanser.
  • Moisturize: Stay Hydrated! Apply a moisturizer for your skin type to keep it plump.
  • Exfoliate Regularly: Remove dead skin cells (1-2 times a week) for a brighter complexion.
  • Serum Power:  Upgrade your routine with a targeted serum addressing your skin concerns. For example, a hyaluronic acid serum can boost hydration, while a vitamin C serum can brighten your complexion.
  • Sunscreen: Your BFF Protect your skin with SPF 30 sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days.


This routine will leave your skin glowing all summer - the perfect gift for yourself!


Indulge In A Spa Day

Pamper yourself with a luxurious spa day. Book a massage, a facial treatment, or a mani-pedi to relax and rejuvenate. 


If it's not possible to visit a spa, you can create a relaxing spa experience at home with scented candles, bath bombs, and soothing music. Taking the time to relax and pamper yourself can greatly improve your overall well-being.


Shop Bras


Santa Came Early: Upgrade Your Summer Bra

Still, rocking that heavy-duty winter bra in the summer heat? Girl, it's time to trade those in for a Christmas in July gift to yourself: a cool, comfy bra that actually supports you!


You'll be surprised at the difference a well-fitting bra makes. Feeling confident and comfortable instantly boosts your mood (and maybe even your posture!). Plus, who says bras can't be festive? Pick a fun, bright color to add some summer cheer to your outfit!
