How to Be a Beautiful Teenager
It's getting harder and harder to fit in as a teenager. The key to being social is confidence, which (most teens find) is easier to accomplish if you feel beautiful. Beauty is basically all about hygiene. Take care of yourself! You deserve it.
Use deodorant or antiperspirant, and if you want to, perfume, even if you think you don't smell.Deodorant is probably a healthier choice than antiperspirant since there is no aluminium in deodorant, but antiperspirant works better and is easier to find. A bit of perfume is great as long as it isn't strong and it gives off a nice scent. For perfume, try some celebrity scents that aren't cheap (for example, you could try Justin Bieber's Girlfriend perfume or Taylor Swift's Wonderstruck perfume) or you could try something from a beauty shop (for example Bath & Body Works or The Body Shop). These types of shops are also great for finding deodorant without aluminum in it.
Be healthy.It might not seem like it matters much, but being in shape and being healthy makes a huge difference. It's not as hard as it seems. Make sure you eat healthy foods, and stay away from fatty/sugary foods, eat lots of veggies and fruits, and exercise at least 30-60 minutes a day. After doing a good cardio workout, like running, for 30 minutes you raise your heart rate which puts your body in "fat burning mode". Try to burn more calories than you eat a day, and make sure you never skip a meal. It makes your body take muscle tissue into your metabolism and makes you store fat, making your metabolism run slowly resulting in weight gain. Also, after a cardio workout (dancing, running, kickboxing etc), try a mild strengthening workout, like yoga or pilates, but not something intense like weightlifting.
Take care of your hair!Use shampoo and conditioner at least 2-3 times a week. On the days you can, let your hair get greasy. This sounds gross but the natural oils are really good for your hair. However, when your hair is greasy, pull it back into a ponytail and/or wear a hat or large headband/hairband so that your hair looks a little bit nicer.
Shave or wax any hair that you don't want on your body.It's a good idea, if you're doing any facial hair removal, to go get it professionally done. For best results with shaving, exfoliate your legs first, towel dry, then cover legs in shaving foam (lots of it!) and shave. Be careful not to get into the habit of over-shaving (shaving every day, for instance) as it will just make the hair grow back thicker and it'll end up being a huge hassle. Plus, you'll probably accidentally cut yourself while over-shaving.
Take care of your nails!You don't have to go to a salon. Just get a nail file and/or nail clippers or manicure scissors. You can shape your nails with a file or clip off uneven parts with the clippers or manicure scissors. If you want a natural look, apply clear nail strengthener to them or a neutral colour like beige, light brown, or pale pink. If you want a funky look, then go for any colour you want, just make sure to fix them if they chip at all. Chipped paint looks terrible. If you want to, try some nail art.
Smile!Seriously! It makes you a lot prettier and approachable. Just make sure your teeth are clean!
Apply a bit of make-up (if you want) to enhance your natural look.Don't plaster it on, and use neutral colours. Use bold mascara to make your eyes seem bigger. Lip balms and glosses are cute, or use lipstick to achieve a bolder look. If you don't want lip stuff on your lips, you can moisturize with lip chap. Acne is very common with teens, you can cover it up with concealer and foundation. Fit Me or Cover girl works great, and is super cheap! Maybe buy a good, gentle face wash to help clear it up.
Find a style of clothing that suits your body type.Don't wear really tight clothes if you're a little bigger, and not wear really baggy clothes that fall off either. Make sure your clothes are clean and tidy. If they have stains or holes (unless they are those famous "ripped jeans") just throw them out. Don't wear the same outfit two days in a row and make sure all of your clothes are clean and wrinkle-less.
Remember you can change your look but it's not always good to change your personality if you want to fit in, so, with that being said, be yourself.Yep, that's a bit clichéd, but it's the truth! Being yourself will make you look even more beautiful. Remember, confidence is the key and when your confident it will make you feel more beautiful than what you already are!
- Be confident with what you say, do and wear. No one can bring you down if you are happy with what you do.
- Be confident always and just be yourself.
- If you're going to use make up, be sure it's a gradual change over time.
- If you are starting to use make up do it gradually don't go full on.
- Be stylish. While brands such as Adidas, Nike and Puma are popular styles, it's important to find clothing that makes you comfortable and reflects your true personality.
- Make sure you know how to apply makeup before you wear it in public/ at school. Practice!
- Don't get carried away with trying to change your image! It's all in baby steps. Everything in moderation.
- Be careful that you don't wash your face/ hair too often as this can actually be worse for it (overboard)
