Now that you’re a teenager, you’re likely experiencing a lot of changes in your body. Unfortunately, not all these changes are pretty, and you’d think that it’s terrible timing that everyone notices how you look.
You may be thinking of spending a lot of money on makeovers, a new wardrobe, and possibly cosmetic procedures and treatments, but you don’t need to do that. You’re still young, so you can start with these small improvements that are less likely to cost much.
Make Your Skin Glow
Teenage skin can be troublesome because of the hormones that mess it up. Because of this, you may be tempted to undergo special treatments. It might be too expensive for you right now, so what you could focus on is to keep it clean (wash it every morning and before you go to bed), drink lots of water, and sleep for at least eight hours a day.
Also, if you want to use cosmetics, you might want to try putting on a light acne-safe makeup. It will not cause product build-up on your skin and prevent it from being too oily or too dry.
Style Your Hair
Sometimes, what you also need is the right style of hair for your face. Go to your local trusted salon and work out a haircut that matches both your preferences and your hairdresser’s advice. You don’t even need to undergo the special treatments just yet; just make sure that you take care of it after your style change.
Washing your hair well and preventing it from becoming brittle and dry will also help. Of course, if the hairdresser recommends that you undergo a certain treatment, consider it.
Stay Active and Healthy
Being a student can be hard on your schedule, so if you want to stay active and healthy, try a quick exercise routine that you can do at home. You can squeeze it into your mornings as well as times when you’re taking a break from doing your homework. Complement it by eating more healthy food such as fruits and vegetables, and cutting down on junk food.
Work on Your Smile
A smile is an easy way for you to look more attractive and confident. Did you know that just by smiling, you can already make people more likely to approach you and make your brain happier?
You can make it much better by setting an appointment with your dentist and having them work to make your teeth straight and white. Don’t forget to keep the healthy habit of brushing and flossing as well. You also need to do your part in maintaining your winning smile.
You don’t need to have any expensive treatments for you to become beautiful. What you mostly need is to maintain a healthy body. When your body is well, you get to look your best naturally. After that, you would only require minimal skin treatments or makeup.
Remember that there’s so much more to your beauty than your looks. Your personality and intelligence can also be attractive. Don’t worry too much about what others think and focus on being the best you.
