Looking beautiful is one of the things many teenager girls strive to be. Luckily, it is not hard to do, although it does take some time and effort. There is much more to looking beautiful than slapping on makeup, styling your hair, and putting on a trendy outfit, however. You have to take care of yourself, your skin, your hair, and your body. After that, the styling parts will come a lot easier.
Taking Care of Your Face and Skin
1. Wash Your Face Twice
To keep your skin looking its best, you should wash your face in the morning when you get up, and in the evening before you go to bed. Use a facial cleanser (not regular soap) and gentle, circular motions. Never scrub your skin, as this can damage it. When you are done, splash your face with cold water. This will help tighten and minimize your pores.
Avoid using hot water, as this can cause your skin to become dry.
Focus on the areas that tend to get the most oily and dirty, such as your nose, forehead, neck, and chin.
Always remove your makeup before you go to bed, no matter how tired you are. Leaving makeup on will lead to clogged pores and pimples.
2. Use The Right Facial Cleanser For Your Skin Type
Determine your skin type first, then buy a facial cleanser that is labeled for that skin type. Be aware that your skin type may change depending on the time of year and the time of the month.
For example, your skin by become more dry during the winter. It may also become more oily while you are on your period.
Consider a cleaner that has salicylic acid in it if you have oily or combination skin. It's great for managing acne too.
3. Follow-up With Toner and Moisturizer
Toner will help seal your pores and restore your skin's pH. Moisturizer will not only help make your skin soft and smooth, but will also prevent your skin from looking flaky when you put makeup on.
Use a lighter moisturizer with SPF in the morning, and a heavier one in the evening.
Use a heavier moisturizer in the winter when your skin is more dry, and a lighter one in the summer when your skin is more oily.
If you have oily skin, choose a lightweight, gel-based moisturizer intended for oily skin. If you have sensitive skin, try one without any added fragrances
4.Remember To Put On Sunscreen
A lot of people love that sun-kissed glow and tanned skin, and for good reason: it makes you look healthy. Too much sunlight, however, can damage your skin and lead to wrinkles and skin cancer. This does not mean that you have to avoid sunlight like a vampire, however. Simply put on sunscreen that has at least 30 SPF on it every day before you go out, and try to limit your sunbathing.
You can always add a healthy glow to your skin with bronzer.
Many moisturizers and liquid foundations contain sunscreen. Consider getting one for the summer.
Try to avoid the sun between 10am and 2pm, as this is when the sun's rays are at their strongest. If you must step out, put on some sunscreen or a long-sleeved shirt.
5. Don't Be Afraid To Wear Makeup, But Give Your Skin Some Rest In Between
Wearing makeup is a great way to make your natural features shine and stand out. It can also help you feel good about yourself. Unfortunately, it can also clog your pores and potentially lead to acne.
If you wear makeup on a daily basis, try to go makeup free every so often to give your skin a chance to breathe.
A good day to go without makeup is when you are chilling at home over the weekend.
